Hannah's 6th Birthday

I have been getting a lot of slack lately, about not keeping up with my blog! I have been so busy with school, work and of course being a mom to our beautiful girls, that I had to let somethings slide. As crazy as my life is, my camera is never to far from reach. This summer I plan on catching up on my scrapbooking.
So I thought I would just stop by to post some cards and a few pics of our little family!

Various Cards

Stamp: CTMH Cupcake Sprinkles and the paper is retired CTMH paper.
Colours: Buttercup, Sweat Leaf, Blush and Petal

Stamp Set: Shining Star
Paper: Magic Moments L2

These are just some cards that I have made lately! There has not been much time for papercrafting, in our busy lives. The first couple of cards were the girls Valentine's Day Cards, and the last card was Hannah's 6th Birthday Card!

Easter Layout

Many of you are probably wondering where I have been lately, and why I have not been posting! There is a good explaination, I have decided to go back to school! I am taking Homeopathic Medicine. In three years time, I will be a Homeopathic Doctor. This was a very big decision for our family, but I have an amazing husband, and he said "just go for it!" Since we reached this decision, my life has been crazy, not much time for papercrafting. I have promised myself, that I am going to continue to scrapbook and to sell CTMH, I will not be able to post as often as I was. So that is my life in a nutshell, for right now!
Enough about me, what about this layout!
Paper: Retired Winter Cosy B&T
Colours: Sweet Leaf, Petal, Blush and Buttercup
Stamp Set: Eastertime, Say It In Style
Accessories: Colonial White Ribbon (Retired), Alphabet Chipboard, Photohangers, and Photo Clips, Silver Pearl Embossing Powder (I highlighted the embossing with yellow chalk)
Take care.

Open House Pictures

This is a picture of my NO CALORIE CAKES!! There was a special offer to everyone, depending on your piece of cake.
The food table. I did not get too carried away with food, just some cookies and loaves.
This was a picture of my card swap table. See info to follow!!
This was the maken' take table.
My display boards.(To all my fellow CTMH Consultants out there, thank you for all your inspiration!)

I just have to start out, by thanking everyone that came to my open house. I had a wonderful turn out, with 20 ladies and 2 little one's in attendence. Everyone had an opportunity to create a beautiful card, and had their names put in a draw for several door prizes. All and all I thought the evening went fantastic, and I was excited to meet several new people.
Take care.
