My recent pages

I made these layouts this week.  The first is the dog show our post vet clinic sponsored last weekend.  My husband and I took our dogs up there and our new shepherd puppy Tango won best in show. He is only 12 weeks old.  Everyone just loved him.
I made the ribbon too, I pleated a strip of paper to go around the circle.  I've never done that before but it came out pretty neat I think.

The other layout I made was for my husbands scrapbook.  He took a picture of this sign in Afghanistan that actually had his home state on it saying about how far away they are.  I thought it was nifty.

A long time since my last post

So, with everything going on I haven't posted anything in a while. My daughter is now 6 months old and still battles stomach problems. She has another appointment at Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital this month so we'll see.

I haven't had much time for crafting, but that's about to change. I am determined to set aside time for me to do my thing. I have managed to make a few things. This Scooby Doo card I made for my neighbors son who had surgery. Inside it says Sorry you're feeling "RUFF" Hope you feel better soon. :)

He is only 2 1/2 so he really liked it. I cut it out on my Pazzles Inspiration.

I have made another very neat thing though. I had posted an ad on a local site for me to make cards or scrapbook embellishments and got a response. They wanted a card for their daughters carnival birthday and so I created a ferris wheel card. Originally I planned to make a 7" tall spinning ferris wheel, but unfortunately my engineering skills left out the part about it being made of paper and so it well.... didn't work out. SO I created this.....
The seats swing and everything. :) That's the coolest part.I did make a alternate inside which I liked better but they wanted to do it by themselves.

So that's what I've been up to. I made 13 of those ferris wheel cards and she loved them! :) It felt great to have my hobby come to some use. I have started an etsy shop and plan to start making some other stuff and try to sell it. I could really use the money, and it's so fun!
