The Gift of Love

This layout was so fun to make. I don't do one page layouts with one picture very often. I almost used this picture from Christmas 2007 on another layout I was doing of my husband's family Christmas, but decided I wanted to use this picture of my in-laws to do a little tribute page for them. They are wonderful to me, and I love them dearly. There is journaling behind the photo (you can see the word Pull at the top of the picture frame).

Dad -- You're How Old?

This is the card I made for my Dad's birthday this week. I found these new embossing folders made by Sizzix and really like them. The only problem is that the words are close to the fold in the folder, so it makes it hard to cut them out in a shape other than a rectangle. Hope you like it.

It's Cool To Be 16

I made this card for my nephew, who is turning 16 this week. When he was born, I nicknamed him Spud. I only called him that when he was a baby, but I still think of him fondly as Spud. In his card, I wrote, "You used to be a little Spud, but now you're a big Tater." I'm sure he's going to think I'm so old and corny!

Don't Forget to Cover Your Butt!

I made this card for a co-worker who is having surgery on Wednesday for colon cancer. My aunt has cancer, and she commented to me this weekend that people don't think they can laugh with cancer patients, and that laughter makes her feel normal again. So, I decided to make a card to try to make my co-worker laugh. She seemed to really like it! I hope you like it too!

This is my Dad's Father's Day card. He is, and always will be, a hero to me. I guess that phrase "Daddy's Little Girl" still lives, even though I'm a grandma myself (a young one I might add). The inside says, "Of a Daddy who worked hard to provide for us . . . Of a Daddy who took us to church . . . Of a Daddy who loved us (and still does). I am thankful. Happy Father's Day!"

Holiday Magic

I have found little time to scrapbook lately. With eBay, and especially with cards for family and friends, no layouts have been done. I was happy to work on this one, although it took me a week because I wasn't happy with anything I did. As I told a friend, it's not my favorite layout I've ever done, but I like it better than I did two days ago when I was in the middle of working on it! Hope you like it.

Bathing Beauty

As you've probably noticed from the many cards I've made lately, I love pink and black together. Here's my latest eBay layout using those colors (and a little blue and yellow too).

Hope you like it!
