Flower Pot Card

I was asked by my boyfriend to make "thank you" cards for his assistants at work. They are both female; one being a fellow scrapbooker. I decided to try out the Flower Pot card using the tutorial found on splitcoast stampers youtube channel.

This is what I came up with:

Supplies Used:

Fiskars border punch
Wausau cardstock
Prima flowers
Recollections brads
Martha Stewart ribbon
Patterned paper from stash

I had a blast making this one! I have one more to make and I can't wait to get started!

Have a great day!

WOW! I Have Finally Started My Blog!

So, I started this blog over a year ago. I never intended to actually USE it. Don't ask me why; I guess it is because I just like to be able to follow other people's blogs, but now I have decided to maintain my own.

Let me start out with a little info about me:

I am a mother of five (yes, 5!) beautiful girls, ranging from ages 8 to 5 months old.

I am a full-time college student, at the age of 28, going to school to become an elementary school teacher.

I have the most loving and supportive boyfriend who has been there for me through very tough times in my life.

I love to scrapbook and am in need of making more time to do it!

The layout that I posted above was completed for EsteeLynn's number challenge over at It was very easy peasy, using some acrylic paints to make the background, and the Fiskars threading water punch to make the border on the photo mat. I also colored in the vinyl Thickers using Bic Mark-It markers. I really like this layout. I think it turned out really cute!

Have a great week!
