Time Flies between Posts

Greetings once again from the Rubber Room!!

I do have to apologize for not posting sooner. This past month (June) just flew by. I've been busy creating, which I'll share here shortly. We also celebrated my grandchildren, Deborah's and Matthew's birthday this month. Deborah turned six and Matty turned four. Oh my how time does fly by!! My husband also celebrated his birthday this month as well. So, we had one big celebration one Saturday to celebrate everyone's birthday at once. I also had two really good friends celebrate their birthday too. So, you can see, with all the birthday's this month, I've been quite busy.

When I heard a surprise party was planned for my good friend, Jennifer...I wanted to make something I thought she might enjoy having. What do you give to someone who probably has everything and could probably make it if she didn't have it? I haven't made one of these in forever, but I thought she might like to have one. Jenn mentioned she LOVES CTMH's Boom Di Ada papers, so with that in mind...this is what I made for her.

Here are the two cards I made for Deborah and Matthew. As they were leaving that night we celebrated their birthday, giving hugs and kisses to all, Deborah yells out..."Wait, I need my card!!" and the copy cat Matthew is...he blurts out the same. Made Gamma feel might special they loved their cards so much.

Deborah's Card

Then we had a few graduations this year. My niece, Amy is graduating, DH's niece, Alyssa is graduating from High School and my great niece, Tarrin is graduating from high school as well.

This is the card I made for all of them. Now, just to get them in the mail.

That's not all what I did last month. As you all know, I have a monthly workshop here in my home, the last Tuesday of the month. In the month of June, we did a two page layout using CTMH's Boom Di Ada Papers. The pictures I used were of all four of my grandchildren. But when I take pictures of all four of them know what that means don't you? I have to do a 2 page layout for each of their albums. So, I did two of the 2 page layouts using the Boom Di Ada papers and two of the 2 page layouts using the Magic Moments kit that CTMH had as a special for National Scrapbook Month. I used the same pictures for all the layouts and even used the same sketch for "Imagine." It was strange doing the Magic Moments layouts. I am use to cutting and gluing paper down before putting photos down on the layout. These preprinted layout pages are so easy to work with. I thoroughly enjoyed doing these pages for the twins. I may have to try doing more of these preprinted page or Level 1 kits more often.

Without further are the layouts for the month of June 2008.

These are for Deborah's book.

These are for Matthew's book. Notice how I changed it a bit. I took out the flowers and added stars and buttons instead.

These are the Magic Moments preprinted layouts. This two page layout will go into Jaden's 2008 album.

These pages are for Benny's 2008 album.

Well, as you can see, I've been quite busy. I have one more piece of artwork to share, but until my friend receives it, I won't be able to share till she does.

Thanks for stopping by. Please take a moment and add a comment or two. I'd like to know what you think.

Until next time,

Inky Hugs,
