Shew - May must have been a busy month

Well, I notice that I haven't posted anything since mid April! Wow! Seems like I've been awfully busy to not have anything to show for it. Actually, I have done a couple of small projects but haven't had the chance to take pics of them to post!
So, I thought that I'd update you with this pic that I just downloaded from my camera of my Aidy baby :) I cannot believe that baby will be THREE this summer - how time flies. Here is a pic that I took of him when we were watching big brother Ian play his soccer game last saturday. I just love this for some reason......wild hair and all :)

Ribbon, ribbon, I love ribbon! lol

Well, a week or so ago, I coordinated a ribbon swap! I guess it's more of a ribbon buy in than a swap but bottom line is we all get LOTS of ribbon when it's done. The shipment came yesterday and now the cutting begins! lol
I haven't done much in the way of creating lately, so no posts since my dh bday card, so thought I'd post a pic of our ribbon spools! lol They're pretty too :)

Happy Birthday Mark!

Friday was my hubby's birthday and this is a little card that I made him!

6x6 layouts

This was the last round of the CTMH consultant swap that I've been making these items for.I've recently developed a fondness for this paper pack and thought it would make nice 6x6 layouts!

Tic Tac holder

I love these little tic tac holders - I think they are so cute! I made some snowman ones back during Christmas and thought I'd give a more general theme a try. These make nice little trinket gifts.

Post it Clippy Board

This is a little Post It Note 'clippy board' that I made out of a 4x4 coaster and binder clip!

This is 2 sets of bookmarks that I made.

3x3 card set

Just a little 3x3 card set using the CTMH Delight in Everything!

Boom Di Ada cards

Here is a little set of cards that I made using CTMH Boom-Di-Ada papers. The stamped images are from the Gratitude stamp set. On the Thank You card I actually used 3 different stamps in 3 different colors and layered them. I did some folding, etc and used pop dots to give it dimension. On the second card I just used my favorite flower from the set, pop dots and put a little stickles in the center for some shimmer :) I really love these cards!! I think this might be my favorites that I've made.

Another Wall Hanging!

This is another wall hanging that I did back at Christmas! This one was for my grandmother. It's a lot like the one that I made my mother in law, this one just has pics of my boys on it though.

I cannot for the life of me get my pics to load in the correct order - lol - sorry about that!

Cookie Sheet Magnetic Memo Board

I love these little cookie sheet memo boards! This is one that I made my friend for her birthday. I'm going to do this as a class at Almost Heaven Scrapbooking - probably in March.

Valentine Mailbox tin

This is the little Mailbox tin that I did for my class at Almost Heaven Scrapbooking. I thought it was cute!
I used the CTMH Stamp of the Month for January.

My 2 year old thought that the Stickles on the heart on the flag looked very intriguing and ofcourse had to touch it before it dried. I did eventually fix it but forgot to get a pic of the finished result.

Acordian Album Wall Hanging

This is an Acordian Album Wall Hanging that I made my mil for Christmas. I was pretty happy with how it turned out! I used a CTMH 9x9 My Creations Accordian Album with the Constant Campaign Key to My Heart paper and stamps. This is a pic of the entire hanging - not the best pic but I couldn't really get a good one for some reason! You get the idea anyway.
I've also taken close up pics of each of the 'pages of the album. Naturally I'm having 'technical difficulties' and I cannot seem to get them to load to this post in the correct order! I'm sure you can figure it out though :)
