Matchbox and Chocolate!

This was a fun project! I used the Matchbox die that is available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I used a Chocolate Chip card stock base with To the Nines Specialty DSP for the cover.
I stamped Avery labels with the paisley stamp from the Wanted set in Chocolate Chip and Mellow Moss Classic Ink, and then wrapped the label around a Hershey nugget. 4 nuggets fit nicely in the Matchbox.
The Just for You sentiment is from the Only Oval set, also available in the Occasions Mini. I stamped it twice on Sahara Sand card stock in Chocolate Chip Classic ink. I then punched one image out with the Large Oval punch, and the other image was punched using the new Scallop Oval punch. I layered the Large oval on top of the Scallop Oval using 2 dimensionals. This created a place to slide the Chocolate Chip ribbon through the tag, so the ribbon could be wrapped around the Matchbox.
You have until June 30th to take advantage of the Occasions Mini!

Hannah at 31 weeks!

Here is baby Hannah at 31 weeks! That would be her foot pressed up against her face!
She was practicing her yoga poses. In another pose she had the back of her hand up against her forehead - think Southern Belle! She has my nose and little indentation above her top lip.
Here she is actually smiling!

The measurements taken support my theory that she will be here before the 17th! She is estimated to be 4 lbs 4 oz - which is about a pound bigger than where she should be at 31 weeks. Her overall body measurement is showing a gestational age of 34 weeks!

I guess time will tell!

Thoughts & Prayers

Here is a card we made at our Hostess Club. We used Kraft card stock for the base. The card stock was cut from 8-1/2 x 11, but cut length wise rather than by the width. Yes, it still fits in a regular size envelope - it just opens from right to left rather than top to bottom!
Paper: Kraft card stock, Urban Oasis DSP, Chocolate Chip card stock, Close to Cocoa card stock, Very Vanilla card stock
Ink: Close to Cocoa Classic ink
Accessories: Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Antique Brass brad

Sunshine Garden Challenge

Each Hostess Club, I give my members a challenge piece. They received a piece of the Sunshine Garden Simply Scrappin' Kit, and a sheet of the die cuts to go with it. This page is what I came up with.
I cut the strip of flowers from the 12x12 page and added it to a piece of Baja Breeze card stock. I cut the strip of stripes from the same page and adhered them to pieces of Kiwi Kiss card stock. I really like these colors, and am going to miss them when they retire this summer!

Daisy Baby

A quick progressive page made during our Hostess Club using In-Colors, and the Daisy #2 Big Shot Die, and the polka dot texture plate! We added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds to the centers of the flowers using 2-way glue. And yes, that is me at 3 months old! :)
Colors: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Whisper White.

2 year old rock star

This is my oldest son taken when he was 2. He's now almost 11! I so can't believe how time flies. I also can't believe that I am just now getting around to scrapbooking this photo! Yikes!!
I used the Rockabilly Designer Series Paper for this layout. Be sure to check out the current sale going on to see how you can get FREE paper!
I also used Sticky Cuts letters and glitter for the "rock" on the page. The stars were cut from Basic Black card stock using the large star punch. I did my journaling (which I am really bad about doing on my layouts) on a piece of Whisper White card stock that I punched using the round tab punch.

Hannah's Bedding!

I forgot to update you on my quest to find baby bedding!! Well, we found it. I should say... we bought it. We had seen this bedding before, but put something else on our registry. Then we went to a different baby furniture store and saw it again. We loved the way it was presented. So we went back to the store we registered at and bought it. We knew that if we didn't buy it then, that they would discontinue it or we would never find it again. :) We bought the mobile too, and added all the little accessories to our registry.

It' has super cute butterflies on it! I'm sure I'll have to cut the extra wings off once it goes through the wash... but still so cute!

And here is what the whole collection looks like. Not that Hannah's room will ever look THAT put together - but it's nice to dream!

We also bought the paint for her room. It is Pale Plum! I can't wait to see it on the walls. Sure hope the tech was right, and it is for sure a girl!! Hee hee.

We go back for our 3rd trimester ultrasound on May 15! I can't wait to see her little face!
