If you would like step by step instructions, please e-mail me at I would be glad to share.

All products are Stampin Up unless otherwise noted:

Not sure if you can see the watermark with my name and blog address in the corner of the picture, but I would like to thank Karen Giron for the lovely watermark that I can now add to my creations. I feel so professional now. If you would like to purchase a watermark from Karen you can check out her blog here there are many to choose from and I had to get 2 of them of course. She is also an awesome card maker and her cards will give you so much inspiration.

Oh my "baby" turned 8

My how time flies...I remember the day, I mean moment that my son Jacob was born and now already, 8 years have passed. He has brought joy to our lives and he makes us proud each and every day. We celebrated his birthday by inviting his friends to a party at my office in the gymnasium. They played soccer, had snacks, had a silly string fight and played out in the playground. It was an action packed 2 hours. HAPPY 8th BIRTHDAY JACOB!!!!
