Haha, but seriously, I would be in heaven if I had a studio like this…*sigh*

On another note, I did get some work done on Emerald’s bridal shower album. Never looks as nice as I think it should, but then I just get lazy to keep working, so hopefully I can crank out the rest this week before we leave for Vegas…

So that makes 10 pages, and I feel like I’m halfway through the pictures, but I bought one of those non-refillable MM albums with 15 pages (for a total of 30). So I wonder if I’ll be able to fill the whole thing? And, if not, what can I do? Hmmmm…..

A little stamping…

Since Dillon is back in school and Alex is in a better mood and will entertain herself again…

The last time I was at Debbie’s, she had made a card sort of like this but with a more vibrant pink and different flowers. I’ve never made a card before without any layers, so I tried it. The pink is a little dull (I bought the VersaMagic instead of the Brilliance, guess not such a good idea), but it’s do-able.

Then I made this one, this time using Brilliance ink for the flower, pearlescent orchid and wasabi for the stem. Not bad.

Then this one, using Best Blossoms. Cranberry Crisp base with Really Rust. The leaves in the background in Creamy Caramel. I don’t know what to do now. Add a sentiment, I’m sure, but where? Across horizontally? Across one of the corners? A really small one randomly throughout the print? HELP!! Lol.

They’re going to be interviewing Gavin Rossdale on Extra in a minute or so, so I’m off 😀

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…

Yep, everywhere we go. So I figured I should get working on some Christmas cards. A little bit of relaxation after taking care of 2 kids sick with pneumonia. Yes, that’s right, pneumonia. I still shake my head and think “what the hell?”. So anyway, this was the first card I made using Daphne’s Merry set and some Chatterbox paper.

Then I tried something with the oblong oval and the skating Santa. Yeah, not so easy to use. I don’t know why I thought I wouldn’t have a hard time if even Daphne had a hard time. I’ll have to try another layout.
And I finally got to use the naughty penguins that I was so excited about. But I’m not at all happy with the result, it looks so blah. I’ll have to look around for some inspiration (or a nice card to CASE:). I do love those penguins, though, they are too cute.
And this last card was made with the Season of Joy set. I think I’m going to make these cards and send them out this year with the pics of the kids in the Xmas outfits that I made my dad buy them.

Okay, now I REALLY have to get working on Emerald’s bridal shower album (the shower was held back in August!), I’m hoping to have it done by Sunday so I can give it to her when I see her. Wish me luck!
