Thursday thrusday...

I got a few cards done this week. This one is for my husbands little brother and wife. They just found out they are expecting a baby. I used the Wordsworth stamps and CTMH pattern paper.
And this sympathy card is for a friend of my husbands. His child was hurt in the storm's we had last week. Sympathy cards are one of the hardest for me to make. I used all CTMH on this one. Have a great end of the week!

Happy birthday card

Here is a card I made for a friend who turned 30 this year. We are all turning 30 this year!!! I have until November, but it is not stressing me out any. Just a number. This card was weird for me as I did not inking on it. Just left the open space on the kraft paper. I had a hard time leaving it alone!
Twopeas blog challenge question for the day is "What would be your dream job?"
Well, right now I am a SAHM and I am getting really bored! Right now my dream job would be to be a teacher's aide in our school district. Keep me busy during the day, have the same day's off as my kids, and not go into work till 9:30. How perfect!!
Have a great day!

Back From Chicago

Well, I survived my trip to the Scrapbooking Expo in Chicago Saturday. My friends and I had alot of fun but boy, was it a LONG day and evening. I did not really need anything, so I didn't come back with a huge bundle of stuff. Just a few things to share.

This is a photo of our goodie bags we got on the bus. They were really cool and full of good stuff. Also a few pieces of paper that I bought from Creative Imaginations. I just love that stuff!

This is the Halloween paper that I bought. I usually only do one layout for Halloween so I didnt need a lot. But just loved the little bat's on this page. It is from Cloud 9 Designs and the flowers are from daisyd's.

I didnt need these 2 pieces of paper from Creative Imaginations, but just loved them! I loved the scallop type edge all the way around, the white line's through the paper and the color's.

And last, this is the paper I bought to use for my in-law's 40th Anniversary gift to be made later. I loved the classic black/cream color scheme here. This paper is from Crate Paper. And look how big those flower's are! I had to have a few of those! I also got these classic black brads to use in the middle of the flower's.
Well, that's my big shopping spree yesterday. My wallet does not really need to recover, but I sure do! There may not be a Make it Monday tomorrow, feeling a bit under the weather and need a few day's to recover. Have a great week!
