A few new cards and layouts

I don't know why it always takes me so long to take the pictures of some of my projects so that I can get them posted on here in a timely manner! The cards in this post I actually just made and managed to take pictures of them, only because I was making them for mother's day. I did forget to take a picture of one, oh well!
This one was for my SIL Lissa, I used Lyrical letters
I almost forgot about these pictures. This is for the family album
Randy's book, very plain page.

For my MIL, I used gypsy font, A child's year and Joys of the season.

For one of Clinton's grandmas, I used wildcard and Sentimentals. Sentimentals is one of the few cartridges that I have bought that I truly have no idea why, because it is so not my style. At all. But, I do like this butterfly. A lot. Hmm, well maybe that is why I bought it. Certainly not enough to justify the cartridge, but I do really like this card!

So, I have decided to start over on the cartridge challenge. I have until Sept. 15. I have bought 2 new cartridges, and I suspect I will get a few more before the challenge is over since I have not banned myself from buying this time. So, right now, I have 48 cartridges and I have used 9. Not too bad! I have also joined a challenge to complete 10 pages a month, I think I have done 6 this month but I am not showing most of them because they are as simple as putting a certificate on a piece of cardstock, but they are finished pages of a book, so that definitely counts for me!
Well, thanks for looking, hopefully it won't take me so long to update again!

What? You mean it's not normal to buy a cartridge because you like one image on it? LOL. Beautiful cards. Love them! And of course your scrapbook pages always look great. The boys are lucky to have a Mom who loves to take pictures of them and scrapbook them. Happy Mother's Day one day late!
