Here it is ...

... My first official blog post as a Design Team Member for The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog!!! I could not be anymore excited!!! WOOOOHOOOOO!!!

Challenge #17
The challenge this week is to make a card, scrapbook page, or a crafty item for someone special to honor them ... we all have people in our lives that we just don't tell often enough just how special they are ...
so now is your chance to show them :-)

I made a card for my oldest daughter Kayla ... she has been so good with my LOOOOONG hours at work ... she and I do not get to spend as much time together since she moved to the middle school last year ... my youngest is still at the school I work at ... and you can sense the jealousy ... I want to let her know that I am proud of her for dealing with the change :-) ...

... now it is your turn to show someone how much they mean to you ... stop on by The Stamping Boutique Blog and share your creation!!!

Annaleigh's First Birthday ...

Hello my fellow stampers ... do not fall outta your chairs ... it really is me ;-) ... I have been crafting ... just no time for posting ... I have taken over as the After School Care director so I am sooooooo busy getting the program up and running back to 100% ... Plus subbing almost everyday ... and PTO ... AND I just signed up to be a Thirty-One Consultant!!! PHEW!!! lol ...

My friend and former co-worker had asked me to make a banner and stuff for a very special little girl in her life ... It was her first birthday and her theme was rubber duckies ... I was so excited that she came to me ... I do not have a die-cut machine or anything so I asked my best friend April to help me out with her trusty Cricut ... after watching in awe how quickly everything was done, I am even more WANTING and NEEDING a Silhouette Cameo!!! I am going to get one!!! lol

Enough talking ... here is what I came up with:

The first thing Patrice wanted was a banner that they could hang Annaleigh's pictures from birth - 1 year ... Here is what I made:

The next thing I made was this cute little door sign ... ya know I had to add rubber duckies hanging from the bottom ...

Now you all know I am one to make cute little candy bags of some sort ... I wanted SO badly to make cute little lollipop covers ... but, little flat lollipops were NOWHERE to be found ... so I opted for my trusty peppermint pattys!!! LOL ... here they are ... and their cute little can:

and last ... but, not least ... her name banner ...

April, thank-you for you and your Cricut ... I could not have gotten this done without you :-)

I am so happy she and I will be able to spend some much needed time together again :-) ... soooooo ... here is what I came up with:
