July Birthdays!

I made these cards with the awesome sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch #126. I know I say this all the time, but I LOVE Karen Giron's sketches!

This card is for my cousin Katie, for her 22nd Birthday.

This card is for my Sister's 30th Birthday. She was a bit freaked out about turning the big 3-0.. so I thought I'd have a little fun with her card!

My No Title Layout... oops!

So, I forgot a title... it happens to the best of us! My layout is already quite busy, so I can't really tell it's missing... maybe that's why I forgot to put it on? Yeah, we'll go with that!

The picture is of Joey & I in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, when we went on our cruise in April.

I really like how Joey's arm is cause it makes me look really skinny! lol.

This layout is for the July Scraplift the person before you Challenge. I lifted Lauriep78's "Best Day Ever".

On the last night of the cruise, we went down to get luggage tags, which tell you what time you can leave the ship the following morning. Well, I took 2 of each color to scrap with! Wouldn't you have done the same?? =]

Journaling: We missed our ATV tour because there was a confusion with ship time and local time. I was so bummed that we missed it because I knew how much Joey was looking forward to it. So, instead we walked around a flea market and shopped a bit. It was SO hot! It had to be at least 100 and it was so sticky and humid! After we got back on the ship, we went in the cold pool, which was too cold to go in any other day and it felt awesome!

She's here!!

My sisters 2nd little one was supposed to be born on Sunday... but decided she didn't want to wait! Kalleigh Ann arrived at 4:44pm on July 7th. She is TINY! 5lbs. 2oz. and 18 inches long.

First time holding her!

Such a sweet little face!!

I wanted to show how small she is... so I thought a dollar bill would do it!! Her piggies ended before the dollar did!

Thank you for being you.

A couple months ago, on the way home from Joey's house, I stopped at a Scrapbook store. Doesn't everyone do that? If you're going to a different city, don't you search the closest scrap stores around the city?? I know it's not just me!! It was a very expensive Scrap store and I paid an arm and a leg for this paper (no pun intended!) so I thought I better get to using it!

Hold on to your seats, there's a bunch of different challenges in this one!

I made this set of 3 cards for the July Card Challenge that I host on For the bonus challenge, we are to make a set of 3 or more cards that don't have to match, but can.

I made this card for Clean & Simple #147.

For this card I used The Sweet Stop's #115 sketch. I don't know if anyone has ever noticed, but I usually put "The Sweet Shop". I do that because we have a mattress place here in Southern California called "The Sleep Shop" lol. Totally on accident though.. it makes it worse that this is one of my favorite card sketch blogs!

I didn't use any sketch challenges for this one, this sketch was just floating around in my head.

I snuck a card in!!

I saw Paper Craft's Magazine has a Color Inspiration Challenge going on right now, that ends on the 4th and wanted to join in!!

I'll be donating this card to Operation Write Home.

July 1st already?

Wasn't it just January like, yesterday?? This year has flown by, very quickly!

I've been working on an 8x8 album for Joey recently, so I don't have any cards to share right now, so I'm going to share photos instead!

Joey, Pluto & I at Disneyland.. I just noticed, Joey's shirt is still wet from Grizzly Bear Run, we all got soaked!

Joey & I at my friend Luci's Wedding

Joey & Klayre at Luci & Kyle's reception, LOVE this one!

On Wednesday I took Klayre to Disneyland for the first time by myself. We had a BLAST! We went on 16 rides and met and got 5 characters autographs.

This is on The Tea Cups... she likes spinning them and making her TT dizzy!

Before Klayre was born (and we knew her name was going to be Klayre), we'd call my sisters belly, Klayre-A-Bellie. We call her Klayre-A-Bell also, so I told her to just stand there so I could take a picture and this is what she did, lol, perfection!
