I recently ran across a website for scrapbookers to make cards that can be sent to troops so that they can then fill them out and send them home to family and loved ones. Never know what to do with those extra scraps, make a card and send it to Cards For Heroes. They're having a blog hop in honor of Memorial Day. You can begin that here.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! May we all be able to take a moment out of this day to focus on its meaning.

Here's a pic of the cover of what this kit will make:
Can you see all the layering? Oh I really can't wait!!!!!
I finally have my scraproom in decent condition supply-put-away wise. Once I get some decorations up in there, I will post pictures. But that's gonna be a while because I did an inventory of projects that I need to begin and complete and it's quite the load. A baby album for twin boys, a baby album for a little girl, 3 upcoming weddings that I would like to create a small album for, Makaela's thank you notes for her birthday party (#1 priority), and then my projects for Scrappin Good Times. We'll see how long my space stays clean huh?

My husband scored major brownie points today. Not that he needed any. But he woke up early and took the 3 1/2 year old to the store this morning. He returned with breakfast makings for strawberry waffles as well as 3 gorgeous and much needed plants for the house. I also received 3 cards. One from Hannah. One from Makaela. And one from the best husband ever himself. He took the time to write Makaela's card from her perspective which was adorable. Things like how she says thank you ("dee doo") and about she loves me but now she wants her milk. You'd have to read it to get it. And he clearly asked Hannah things. Like what makes me a good mommy. Her response was that I love her and lay in bed with her. :) And then his card praised me for doing a good job as a mother but also as a wife and friend. So huge thank yous to him.
Below are some pictures of cards I made from a paperline called LoveBirds by S.E.I. for all the wonderful mothers in my life. And some cards that Hannah made for her grandmas (the last 3). Take a look at hers and tell me if you can't find some inspiration in there. The only things I helped her with was putting glue on the backs of the paper pieces, not allowing her to put a sticker on top of a sticker, and advising that pink stickers might not look the best on top of the same color pink paper. Yes, I am teaching her about contrast and making something pop already.
Again, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

I swung by SGT earlier today and it was hopping with a great group of women at the 12 hour crop. This is something that everyone should try at least once. I can't think of anything better than to crop inside a scrapbook store! Now I know our husbands all tease us that we could open our own stores with how much stuff we have, but you guys know what I am talking about.
So HAPPY NSD!!!!!
Hope you're doing something fun.
PS - birthday banner is shaping up fairly well; party favors are in construction; and 1 layout is under way showcasing the first year of life for my sweet baby girl. Still hoping to get a couple more layouts done.
