First Day of Preschool

It's official!! My very first blog post for the Momenta Design team went up today! As you know, I was really excited to get the box! And it didn't disappoint!

The cardstock works really really well through my Silhouette, so I cut the whole title out of cs. For the journaling, I didn't stamp it, I just ran it all through my printer, using a really subtle piece of patterned paper.

Here's the layout:

Can you believe how tiny my son is? OMgosh! He's going to be a full blown teenager in December! Oh, so cute!!

That's the journaling... yup, just used the Ali Edwards font here and there and popped some color on the font.

Ethan thought the church where he went to school, looked like Hogwarts! too cute.

And here is one of my most favorite Momenta products, these puffy stickers! Isn't this robot to die for? Had to use him!!

In other news, I was very, very, VERY bad today! LOL! I went to Joanne's on a punch mission! Thankfully, all the punches were 40% off, except the Martha Stewart one, called Cherish, but, I had to get it! Love it. I also purchased the one that makes your stuff look like it was torn from a page, the ek success edge punch... I'm sure I'm the last person on the planet not owning one! I also got a basic star shape... even tho I have the Slice, I wasn't getting the right star. I can't wait to go play.

Hope everyone had a great week, and a better weekend. The weather here is just perfect today, can't complain!!

Have a great day!!

"Owl" be back....

Oh, wow, where did the time go??? I've been so busy, my blog got ignored a bit.

First off, Happy Fourth of July!! My family went to Kennywood Park. I didn't want to go, so I decided to stay home and scrapbook and get some laundry done. I kind of like the quiet right now!! It's a rare commodity these days!

I've been working on projects for the Momenta design team, but I can't share any of it with you just yet. I was so excited to finally get my box. You can find the Momenta/ATD paper pads, stickers, cardstock pads and page kit at Michaels and AC Moore... I haven't checked at JoAnns yet. I am just in love with their border stickers!! They're having a contest right now with their line of Design Your Own Stickers, so check out the blog to see if you can play to win!!

Since I can't share my Momenta layout just yet.... I have a cute little "owl" card I can share. We had a swap of paper pieces on a scrapbooking board I'm on, and I got this cute little owl, so I made this cute little Thank You card:

I'm not much of a paper piecer, but he sure is cute.

I'm also working on 2 other layouts... one of my NYC trip, Times Square was AMAZING!! The play "The Normal Heart" was amazing. It was neat to see a Broadway play, well, kind of off Broadway. Ellen Barkin was in it and she did such a fantastic job. Really.

That was quite a world-wind day! Fun, but I don't think I'll need to go back for another 10 years! LOL! I would like to take my kids. We'd do more touristy things, like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Hope you all are having a great 4th of July Weekend!! If you're not celebrating, I hope you're having a great Monday at least!!
