Just a few things I have working on.

This card is from the Good ol Days Imagine cartridge. I layered, glittered and pop dotted it.

 This card is had cut. I used a stamp and then cut out all the pieces. Both of these are for Missie over at createdbymissie.blogspot.com. It is her birthday this Sunday and she got into Nursing School.

This is just a try at the Gigantic Flowers. Will have to keep trying to make them look better.

Again I never made this LO just added the pictures.  My daughter-in-law makes me a calendar almost every year and I decided I need to use the pages not just look at how pretty they are.

#79 LO for the year!

Well I have stared at this paper for days now and finally decided to use it.  Must of loved it when I got it but felt it was too, busy to use.  Hopefully matting the pictures 3 times made them stand out from the paper.  I sort of like how it turned out.

The bird cage, flowers and bow are all SVGCuts. I was going to enter it into the Spring contest but got scared when I saw the other entries but I think it is still pretty.  The LO is from the same stetch that my last one was from but I think it worked well with my pictures.

Ok I know this is a very simple LO but I could only find one picture of my son that was any good.  He has a 8 1/2 x 11 album so I decided to just make a simple page.  The paper is from Provo Craft from along

LO # 69 and 70 for the year!

Well I made it to 70 that is pretty good for me so far.  Thank you for all the kind comments along the way.  I have decided to join some challenges along the way and have had fun with them.  I will keep doing the challenges because they make me think before I start a page.  These two are pretty simple but I like them. I used Billionaire and Elegant Edges on the High School one and Batman on the Jr High one.

This is the sketch I used for the second LO and it is from the Let's Scrap challenge.
