Birthday Boy!

Happy Birthday to this guy...

Yes, my #1 son turns 30 today!
How can that be?
Since he has spent the last few weeks on an amazing world traveling adventure I thought it fitting to use the
to create his birthday card.
I wish I could be with him to celebrate but at least this momma has the peace of mind knowing he is back in the states.
Looks like I will be planning a trip to NYC for Fall Break or Christmas.
Happy Birthday Scotty!

Happy 4th of July!
I created this card using the 
Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge for the cut overlay.
The stamp sentiments are from
I am linking up to the
 as I was inspired to use the colors:
Colonial White and Kraft
I also linked up to The Kraft Journal,
red, white and blue challenge.
I hope you "celebrate good times" and
have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!

Summer Crush

In cleaning my craft room I found some extra photos and memorabilia from
the 2014 Close To My Heart Convention.
I quickly added them to my CTMH My Crush Book.
I had started a Modville Crush Book to document my CTMH journey.

a little stamping and a detail of a card I got from my leader Brenda

Since the background pages are pre-printed documenting memories
is fast and easy when you use a My Crush Book.
Seeing these pictures brought back so many wonderful memories.
It is getting close to time for new convention memories...2015 convention will be at the same place, Disneyland in Annaheim, CA.  
I leave in just over a week and I cannot wait to see these lovely ladies and meet new team-mates as well.
Just a reminder about the Summer Crush special...
when you purchase any My Crush Book and it's coordinating Assortment, you get the coordinating stamp set FREE!
Details on my CTMH website HERE.
These sets make great gifts too!
