21st Birthday Card for Leah

My oldest step-daughter, Leah, turns 21 next week so I decided to make her a special birthday card for the occasion. The card sketch is from the RAQ's card challenge that ended on 3/1/11. I got the idea for the cut from another lady on the board, I just thought it was so cute and such a great idea that I had to copy it. The martini glass is from the From My Kitchen cart and is cut at 4". I used the X-Mas Red Stickles for the olive pit and Silver Stickles for the starburst on the glass. I cut out a piece of teal vellum paper and put it over the other paper to make it look like a frosted glass but it's hard to see in the picture. The tag is embossed with the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder and is cut on the Shorty funtion at 3 1/2". The word Celebrate is cut at 2". Both the tag and the word Celebrate are from the Stamped cart. Thanks for stopping by! <3

I'm Hosting This Weeks' LID Challenge on the Messageboard!

I am so excited, I'm hosting this weeks' LID challenge over at the messageboard. Above are the layouts that I submitted for the challenge, I can't wait to see what the creative girls on the site come up with. I am actually going to make an effort to get a page done before the week is up too, I guess I should since I am hosting right? Haha. Thanks for stopping by! <3

Pregnancy Layout for February LID Challenge

Here is the layout that I did for one of the February LID challenges on the Cricut messageboard. The picture isn't the greatest, sorry. The top part says "Made With Love." I am trying to stay on top of my layouts for the baby so that maybe I will have one scrapbook that is not behind, haha. In the passage I wrote like I was talking to the baby. I wrote how I felt when I found out and what foods I was craving at the time. I think it will be nice for him (or her, as Matt thinks) to be able to read it when he (or she) is older and see what was going on when I was pregnant with him (or her). Thanks for looking!
