Girl Baby Shower! Ideas and more ideas

Everybody knows that I'm crazy about babies and I can't wait to have my own kids! We are planning for maybe next year! While I don't start trying, I get busy looking for baby shower ideas and helping my friends with their own!
When I think about themes I like, the fisrt one that comes in mind is the ballerina theme. 
My great friend Sue is now the cutest young grandma I know! She is so in love with her granddaughter! We met and put together a Wild Jungle theme card making session and the shower was soooooo cute!

Using our Cricut Cartridge (Create a Critter) to make the animals!We used our CTMH sponge daubers to ink the monkeys and giraffes! Pink, pink, pink!

 Below are some ideas I found on Pinterest for this kind of shower! Cute!

Get organized!!

How cool are these organizers? I want them all!
The large organizer makes it so easy to organize your crafting supplies! Store up to 40 stamp sets, all the supplies you need for a crop, and more in this sturdy and stackable container.

Celebrating our anniversary!

3 years go by soooo fast! I can't believe we have been married 3 years now! It is always a challenge to surprise my hubby! We never get each other anything on our anniversary! Instead, we take professional pictures and celebrate our love together every year! It has become our tradition. 

Well, for the anniversary, I decided to write him a card and I got so excited about what I wrote that I decided to scrapbook a simple frame with our Las Vegas pictures from spring break 2012! This spring break we really didn't go anywhere because I had recently broken my arm in 2 different places and it has been a challenge to recover from the breaks. 

For this layout, I used the exclusive Close To My Heart Tommy paper packet features in the spring/ summer 2013 Ideabook and now in the fall 2013 Ideabook as well! I love how vibrant the colors are! I hope you love it too!

It is summer!!!!! Water Follies Race here in Tri Cities and a quick trip to San Francisco were the highlights so far!!!! Some scrapbooking parties at my house and BBQing with friends have been fun! 

I love my American flag scarf that I bought in SF!!!

I finally finished my scrapbooking on canvas project! It has been months that I wanted to be done, but finishing my masters and teaching full time was a little bit too much! check the pictures out! All the paper and embellishments are from Close To My Heart! 


During the last scrapbooking party at my house, I had some awesome friends scrapbooking beautiful pages! Check them out!
