For being you

I am so loving these stamps, there are so many possibilities! I am almost done with another card to post tomorrow. This one I stamped on memory box PP, they have the most beautiful patterns I find even though I buy tons of PP, basic grey, and many other names. I end up using the memory box so much more. After stamping I cut the pieces out to attach to the main image. I ended up inking the stem and leaf paper with shabby shutter to create more of the color I was looking for. The sentiment is from PTI, and the border punch is from martha stewart. 
Yesterday my sweet baby turned 8 years old! It feels like just yesterday we brought this little baby home, amazed that the hospital let us leave with such a thing! We had no idea what to do with a baby, we thought we were prepared! Now a family of 5, he is the oldest and the best big brother to Wyatt and Lainey! He has always been a quick witted, smart, funny child definitely beyond his years, an old soul. Owen is the sweetest child, and very caring about other's feelings, I know as he grows older things will change but I hope he keeps his good heart. He loves to fish and golf with his best buddy, his Daddy and although I admit to being jealous of their relationship at times it is something to see a child love his Daddy like that. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband that is the best father to our children.


  1. Beautiful! Love your paper-pieced creation! Must get these stamps!

  2. Yummy colors on this one and Owen looks so cute! He is a good big brother! Tell him Happy Birthday from me :)
