My Holiday Weekend

So even with my bad news on Friday, I was pretty productive this weekend. I made some cards for World Card Making Day (Saturday) for the DT Challenges over at Creative Express.

I also have been trying to get caught up on my albums. I'm only a few months behind (snicker snicker - at least its not a few DECADES!) So I made myself do some layouts this weekend as all I ever do is make cards anymore! LOL! Thanks for looking!

Friendship Card Challenge

Birthday Card Challenge

This LO features the 'Clear Page' technique. This technique was featured in the September ScrapGoods kit. The idea is to make a clear page that 'sits' on top of a paper page. SG gave us these clear, thick pages that will slip right into a page protector! So here is what I did with mine. Love it, and now I'm not so intimidated by the clear albums I've been hoarding!

Top left: Clear page stacked on paper page. Top right: Front of clear page. Bottom left: Back of clear page. Bottom right: Paper page.

This is Sgt. Wills! Sierra loves to dress up in Daddy's uniform and help him recite the Airman's creed.

This LO is from July 4th. Karis was all snugggled up next to Mommy (it was about 50 degrees!) and out like a light after the fireworks. Such an adorable pic, one of my favorites!

Doodling LO. Just playing around with my pens and doodling! I can see a lot more doodling going on my LOs from now on!

This LO is for Karis' first birthday. The paper on both sides is the exact same, but I photographed them separately and this is what I got and I'm too lazy to do it over.

Thanks for looking!

Aleta, I love your work! You are very talented. Your new cards and layouts are beautiful. Of course, many of the layouts have my favorite subjects in them! :) Papa and I really enjoyed "Sgt. Wills." Motivate me to get busy, as I am decades and decades behind. Love, Mom Wills
