Felt Flower Fun


My mom loves making her own flowers and she asked me to try out felt with the Sizzix 3D flower die....
It is so awesome and I think easier to work with than the paper....

I'll be back tomorrow with a halloween mini album kit...

Hope you are having a great weekend...

First Day Of School Layout

Hi All,
I know today is usually a video day, but I kinda took the weekend off and did a little scrapping for the family scrapbook. Today is our 13th wedding Anniversary. So Happy Anniversary to my hubby.

I'm working on my 2009 scrapbook...This is Ethan's first day of school from last year.

I used my new BoBunny Learning Curve paper for some of the elements and the background is a plain black cardstock that I crazy stitched around the border. "2nd Grade" is cut from Plantin School Book on my Cricut and the tag with "Back To School" circle sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe.

Have a great Labor Day.
