Busy, Busy, Busy.

With my lack of posts lately, you would think that I have not been creating. Well, think again. It's just been with help from others. lol Remember that you can click on the photos to see them larger.

My friend Claire is getting married in a few months, and I wanted to do something in honor of her engagement. It took me a while, but I finally got it together. And I must thank Diane for her awesome talent. I used Diane's Aperture Card file to make Claire some note cards. I made a set of 12 with her current monogram and a set with her soon-to-be monogram.

I then used Diane's directions to make boxes to hold the cards and envelopes. Claire loved them, and I have since made additional cards for her.

Next project was another of Diane's creations--the two monkeys. I added a shadow layer and plan to go back and try another one using the pens to draw the details before cutting it. This was for another friend, Ashley, who has twins in NICU and has referred to the boys as two monkeys in her journal posts. They are doing well and will hopefully be home soon. Yea!

Next up was a project for my friend Sherrye. One of her sons is getting married next month. I'll wait and share that project after the wedding but wanted to share an offshoot from it. Maybe I've been spending too much time "with" Diane because I'm beginning to think like her. (Of course, that could be a really good thing!) One page of this project cut 100 baby heads. My first thought as I'm pulling the paper from the mat is that the leftover would make a great page for a baby layout.

Babies 12x12 File

The remainder of my project sharing will have to wait. I'm scrapping with the Ferncliff Divas this weekend and having a great time. I hope to have lots to share when I get home.

Have a great weekend!

Baby bottle:
My grand daughter is having a baby and I would love to have the pattern for the bottle to use as invites to the shower. I don't have new arrival. Is there anyway to work around it?

Janice, I'm sure you could recreate the bottle fairly well using George. However, with a new baby in the family, you're probably going to be wishing that you had New Arrival. Even without a baby, I find myself using it for this and that. Congratulations, Great Grandma!
