one month!

Here is a two pager for the baby gift album. One month. I am going to do all of the holidays as well, but, I am struggling with whether I should match the colors that I have been using (pink, yellow, green) or use the colors of the holiday (red, white & blue for the 4th of July...) any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated!

I am really struggling with getting good pictures lately. It is gloomy here again today, and I just can't get a good quality picture. But, I have set a goal for myself not to let the pages stack up, to get the pics taken and posted on here as well as the challenge thread on the cricut site. So, I guess it's as good as it's going to get for now!
I am now up to 5 pages for the month!

tub time!

Here is another page for Hayden's baby book! I don't love the way it turned out, but, I'm not sure what it is that I don't like about it...
I used my cuttlebug to emboss the scalloped circles. I also used my threading water punch again, if I use it enough, I won't regret buying it, since I'm not really much of a punch person! I also used my poohfont cartridge for the baby pooh in the tub! There are also stickles, but you can't really see them!
Thanks for looking! I have now tied my page count for all of May! I have finished 3 so far in June! Woo Hoo!

Some for the baby book.

So I have done 2 pages so far for June! Not great, but, considering I only did 3 for all of May, I guess I will take it! These pages are all for a baby's first year album that I am doing for some friends of ours who are due the end of this month. YIKES!!!! I'm hoping to get it finished and take it to them in the hospital. I sure hope she doesn't go early!
This title page I actually did in May, I think... I used the famous "skittles" for the flower centers on the smaller flowers and the flower gem in the center of the large flower is actually off of a headband that one of my daycare girlies had and she decided to pull them all off. I found them all over the floor! Works nicely here, I think!
These pages I actually used my new threading water and leave it to weaver punches by fiskars. I think they are both a lot of fun! I also used my new quikutz flourish dies. I cut them with my cuttlebug. I think this page looks a lot better in person. I also used some stickles, but, they aren't showing up!

So the pics aren't that great, it's been pretty goomy and I just couldn't get a good one. Oh well! At least I got them posted!

May was pathetic!

Okay, May was pathetic! I only did 4 pages and 4 cards. That stinks! So I didn't take pictures of the first 2 cards, they were graduation cards, made with a different variation of tigger. I didn't use the patterened paper, I embossed them with the cuttlebug. Here are 2 cards I made for my neices who graduated from High School a couple of weeks ago. They are twins. Riley was the Salutatorian of her class, way to go Riley! I'm really proud of both Riley and Jordan! I also added "skittles" aka decorative accents to the cards after I took these pics.
This is the first page I have done for our dog, Willie. I probably won't do too many, but he is a member of our family now, so I need to do a few, right? This is for our family book. My secret sister for 2007, Marsha, sent me some great dog stuff when we first got Willie, so I finally used a bunch of it! The bones were cut out using my cuttlebug and the dog bone die from Quikcutz, I cut them out of dog bone patterned paper. I like the way it turned out.
This will be the first of many pages from my youngest BIL's wedding last August. You've seen the pic of Brandon before, I just love it! The page is a little plain, but, I think I will leave it. This is for the family book, also.
This is for Brandon's book. The guys getting ready for the wedding. I already posted the 2 pager for the family book.
I have one more page from May, but, I haven't even taken the picture yet! Hopefully I will get it taken and posted this week. I would really like to get back on track for June. I have a baby's first year book that I would really like to finish to take to the hospital when the baby is born, she's due at the end of this month! I better get moving!
Thanks for looking!
