Baby Shower layout

So, I guess I'm a bit late in making this page... my shower was in April lol...

Anyway, I am pretty excited about this page, I managed to get all my settings right on the first run in cutting the letters. I didn't have to redo it like usual. I actually am pretty excited because while making this I decided I wanted a different font on it, so I figured out how to download and use a font off the web. I got the files from the
craft room.
I found a pretty neat trick too to make the detail on the clothes without making the lines too dramatic. I didn't want to use pens so it wouldn't take away from the pictures any more than it already does. Anyway, I used the pic tool and drew the lines and then just chalked over the lines, and erased the chalk. It left just a tinge of color in the lines I made. I hope that makes sense.....

My latest projects

So it's been an interesting few days here. Got my tubes tied, 2 month old daughter got hospitalized and all of my husbands family was here for a week... whew!

Anyways, I managed to get 2 projects done. One I had help with from my sister in law, she helped me make my daughters scrapbook. I had an old book that was kinda worn on the outside so we found this super AMAZING fabric in my collection of it and decided to cover my old book.

I haven't gotten the stuff to laminate the photo that will go in the frame yet so for now it's just blank.

I also did my dads fathers day card, it's pretty simple but I think he'll like it.

My Nephews card

I made this card for my nephew who is having some hard times right now. I know he likes drums so I decided to use it in the card. I intend to send it off today if i can, I hope he likes it.
