NVS Challenge #8 Entry

I created this layout of my daughter and my friend's son when he came to visit. We tease that this is her boyfriend. I used my cricut expression to cut out the letters and they were on white paper. I used my chalk inks and colored the letters. I used my sewing machine to stitch around the photo and felt shapes and chipboard for the accents.  I truely hope these two will be friends always.

This is my entry for the challenge at NVS challenge #8 due today 10/31. If you would like a chance to earn the prize from BlueMoonScrapbooking then enter today.

Mommy's Free Day!

Here is my latest artwork from my Mommy only day with my good friend Megan. She and I were able to get free from our little ones and get scrapping! I myself have not been able to scrap since my second baby girl was born almost 4 months ago. So not only have I not been able to start her album yet, I am still only on months 4-5 of my first baby girls album!!! Does this sound familiar? I used Close to my Heart paper kits on several pages to help me get caught up. I LOVE the fact that the paper packets all come like a kit with all the coordinating papers. It takes the guessing out of it for me.

This layout was of my daughter at 5 months old when she had caught the swine flu. It was scary, but she had no major fact you can see she was still a pretty happy baby.

I apologize for the glare on this page. One night my daughter was playing in her exersaucer and it was really loud. Just jumping and jumping and jumping.  I had sort of tuned her out while I was on the computer since she was having fun close by.  Then I had one of those Mommy moments where everything got really quiet and you know you need to go investigate. Well this is what I found. She had just kept jumping until she got so tired she fell asleep right there! If you knew my daughter at all, you knew she was a horrible sleeper so this was a tiny miracle!

This picture has bad color, so let me show you 1 page at a time.

For this layout I used a scrapbook overlay.  These overlays come with the squares cut out already and you just place photos behind the squares or paper scraps like I did. It really helps speed up the page. I think I am going to re-do the journaling block as my handwriting got sloppy, but other than that it turned out really cute.  Can you tell my daughter was not into it! Ha Ha! That is what I get for trying to get in a photo shoot before nap time! I am not sure of which company's these papers came from since I store mine by theme.  These were not CTMH though.

Jump for Joy!

October is the best time to hold your own Home Gathering. Why, you ask? During October, all of my hostesses will earn more Hostess Rewards with a qualifying Gathering of at least $450 US in sales. How does this work? As a qualifying hostess, you'll automatically jump up to the next Hostess Rewards level. In other words, if your Gathering sales qualify you to receive $100 in free select product and two items at 50 percent off, you'll actually jump up to $120 in free product and three items at 50 percent off! This means more for you! You'll earn at least $20 more in free product and may even earn an additional item of your choice at 50 percent off. So, don't wait! October is a great time to invite your friends and family over to do some holiday shopping with Close To My Heart, order their holiday card, craft, or scrapbooking supplies, and have a fun night out crafting, laughing, and relaxing.

It gets even better! Beginning October 1, 2010, an EZ Invite Gathering can be held completely online. As long as two orders are placed (either through the Consultant or online via EZ Invite) by guests invited through EZ Invite, and as long as the total reaches at least $150/$175, the hostess will qualify for Hostess Rewards. That means hostesses holding face-to-face Home Gatherings or virtual Online Gatherings can both reap the benefits of Hostess Rewards! So this means you don't even have to actually clean your house.  You can have a completely online catalog party! Now your party guests can be from all over the country!

Contact me today to Host a Party! This offer only good this month.
