{ pink pages }

So I've got a lot of catching up to do on Angie's scrapbook and so I'm just trying to get these pages done because I've been putting them off for a long time. You know how there are just certain pictures that aren't your favorite or something and you just don't ever get around to it? Well that's how these first two pages are and I'm proud to say that I completed them, except for the journaling. Notice how the theme is pink? I can assure you that there will be lots more where that came from! I love pink! And it's a better alternative to purple in my opinion. It's never been my favorite color, but I'll use it every now and then. I really like how that last page came out, maybe it's because I love that picture! :) I'm really getting into stamping on my pages, so all the flourishes that you see are my doing. I got a new stamp set the other day and decided to try it out. I also love the quote on there, It's so true! Hope everyone had a great day!

{ finally some scrapbooking... }

It's been months since I've done any scrapbooking, so finally I pulled out my unfinished pages and completed this the other day. It's not my favorite, but it's cute. All I need to do is add the journaling and I'll have to do that when we get a new printer. Anyway, just thought I'd share this with everyone, obviously I'm a little, no scratch that... a lot behind on my scrapbooking! But at least I'll always have something to do, right?

{ birthday cards }

I love birthday cards because I love cupcakes! The brown and blue card was Brad's birthday card... I have a hard time making cards for boys in general because I love flowers, glitter and the color pink, which are all very girly things! Oh well, it didn't turn out too bad! I used a couple of new clear birthday stamps that I just recently got at Jo-ann's... I really liked how they turned out! Gotta love those 40% off coupons at Jo-ann's!

{ change purse }

My Mom and I found this pattern online for this cute little change purse or sunglasses holder or whatever fits in it! So we made one for Krystal for her birthday to match the bag my Mom made her. It turned out so cute! I love having everything... it just makes me really happy! I had a problem getting the snap on with my new snap setter, so I finally used the directions on the snap packaging and used a hammer and a spool of thread... crazy you say? But it works! So don't go wasting money on a snap setter because it's much easier the other way! Or maybe I just got a bad setter, in that case I'm taking mine back! Anyways, tell me what you think?
