Magical 3rd birthday

Here's a layout I did end of last year but never posted. I had lots of photos I wanted to include so I used photoshop elements to create the collage. The paper and embodiments are from Close To My Heart's Magic Moment's Kit and Mini Medley collection. The pink textured paper is Bazzil. I used the Circut to cut out the title, 3 and the cute scrolly frame. The photo is the frame is my favorite of my daughter. She looks so grown up here but oh so pretty. This layout is oh so very simple, but that's exactly what it needed with such a large collage of photos.

Spring time

It was love at first sight with the new Springtime stampset from Close To My Heart. I have been wanting to use it since I got it, but here's my first crafty item completed with it. Everything is CTMH. The paper is from the Caboodle Level 2 kit leftover from the Workshop On The Go. The Flowers are clear button, and the rays of the sun are cut up sorbet ric rac ribbon. The stampsets used are Springtime, the Clouds and rain drops are from Childhood, the puddle is from Worlds Best Dad (past stamp of the month), Rain is stamped using Elegant Script.

Snow on the Gulf Coast

Last month we had a few white clumps fall from the sky. It's really quite a thrilling event around here. I wish I would have ventured about an hour north to really have been able to play in the snow. They received about 5 inches and well the only accumulation we saw lasted about 10 seconds. Kallie loved it. Taylor was curious and then decided he doesn't like the cold. This was their first and hopefully not last experience with snow.
The photos are not that great I couldn't get the true white to show up, or just how pretty the glitter rubbons are either. Everything is from CTMH. The colors are Creme Brulee and Twilight. The patterned paper is from Aspen. I used my Circut to cut out the letters. and I painted with create a shade on the edges of the Creme Brulee cardstock. I plant to add a few more things but I wanted to share this with you anyway. I couldn't wait.
