Beat the Heat Layout - Mexico


Here's a fun layout that I created for our cruise that we took with the kids to Mexico.  We are hanging out at Stone Island in Mazatlan.  What a fun day with our family!  Love these guys!  It was my children's first time flying on a plane, seeing the ocean, being on a cruise ship and leaving the country.  Guess we waited to do it all in one vacation!  LOL.  We had a ball.  These cute little bears are from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  Aren't they cute!  I am entering this into the Cutitupchallenge.  They are celebrating 100 challenges!  Way to go!  Happy summer all!

Baby Card

MarjorieAnnDesigns offered this file as a freebie not long ago.  I love her designs!  My niece just found out she is expecting a baby boy.  Since I do't get to make baby items anymore, I jumped at the chance to make this cute little card.  I love cuts that I can use all my left over paper on.  Of course, then I had to find some paper to make a cute little envelope (which I messed up on and had to fix.....still learning sizes on those.  Someday, I'll get it figured out!)  Anyway, I bet she doesn't even notice that the envelope is a little off.  Hopefully, she just sees the cute little card and loves it.  My friend had this brilliant idea to slide her card inside the envelope for storage.  Then card and envelope stay together and I can still see what card it is.  Now why didn't I think of that sooner?  Better late than never!  LOL.

Pinewood Derby Layout

I'm finally getting around to doing my son's pinewood derby layout.  He loved his car and award.  His dream car is a lime green camero and so he asked his Dad if they could try to make that car.  They did a really nice job.  He absolutely loved it!  The derby car is from Treasure Box Designs, the title I made, and the banner across the top is a Miss Kate's Cuttables Design.

Piano Recital Layout

 Some layouts turn out better than others.  I don't know if it's the colors, the files or, the child, but I love how this layout turned out.  I love the colors, title, piano, roses etc.  Love love love it!  Thanks Miss Kate's Cuttables!  As for the unfinished part, I actually cut those piano keys BEFORE she did this recital....so I've been holding them for about 18 months or so....the other cuts are actually left overs too except for the roses.  Those were a recent freebie and I am dying for warm weather and flowers around here so I couldn't help but make some out of some left over scraps.   Hoping for a little spring maybe?  LOL.  Whatever the reason, I love them too.

Black and White Thinking of You Card

I have a friend who is going through a rough time right now so I made her this card.  I love the pop of color on the black and white.  So simple, elegant, and nice.  Hope it makes her smile!
