So, I went on the "Picture This" Bus Tour Yesterday and had so much fun! We started out at 8am at "Picture This" in Eau Claire, WI. We had breakfast, 2 make-n-takes and a little shopping. Then at 9:30 we boarded the bus (all 42 of us). We headed to Cannon Falls, MN. We stopped at "CF Stamps etc." for 2 hours. While there, we did a little more shopping, had lunch and a super cute make-n-take. Finally, we headed to Osseo, MN for "We're Stampin' Mad". This was a large store that also combined with a bead store. The staff at all 3 locations were wonderful, the specials were great, I learned some neat things along the way and had fun with some great fellow scrapbookers. I returned at 7pm. After, catching up with Eric and the kiddos, having a bite to eat and resting a little. I still felt very creative. So, here are 2 cards that I created last night. As many of you know... the Chevron Stripe is super popular right now. So, I put my little twist on it with the Close to My Heart Dotty for You paper pack.

I love banners, rosettes, and bling... BUT most of all I love Sydney. So, this was a fun layout to work on. It was 3 years in the making though :) Sydney had her first dentist appointment back in 2009. I guess I just needed the right paper, and embellishments to make this layout happen.
I worked on a few large rosette magnets and small rosette bookmarks with the new Close to My Heart Dotty for You Campaign Paperpack. I showed the front and back of each in the picture below.

Then there is my HAM Sydney... "take a picture of me MOM". Of course she was afraid that I would forget her. My little middle child. I love that girl. Here she is striking a pose while watching a cartoon and eating a snack.

Ok, this isn't in line with the "Dotty for You" Campaign that I have been working with lately. However, I had to post a few Disney layouts... Because I have BIG news... WE ARE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!! We have been telling our kids for 3 years that when Ethan is 8, Sydney is 6 and Wyatt is 3, we will go to Disney. Well, it is time to pay up on that promise. We are in the planning stages. We have asked both sets of Grandparents to go along too. So, this should be a trip to remember. Luckily for me, I have a few gals that have been asking me to do Disney layout workshops over the past few years. Here are two layouts from some of my recent workshops. I hope you enjoy them and they give you some inspiration. All of the product used is Close to My Heart and most is retired. If you have specific questions, feel free to email me. Thanks!

I am so excited to post this card. The meaning behind it is just amazing! I just love making Baptism cards and I am so excited for Tori. She is the daughter of a close friend of mine. She recently gave her life to Christ and chose to have her baptism this weekend! So, Congratulations Tori! The Woodworth Family is so happy for you. I wish that we could be there!
I love the fun shapes and the clean look of this card. It was made using the CTMH "Dotty for You" May Campaign paper pack, the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, "4 My Friend" Stamp Set, Baker's Twine and Sweet Leaf Stamp Pad.

Here is another fun "Spring" card I did using the "Dotty for You" paper pack from Close to My Heart. I used a stir stick to make the flag with a few paper banners. Once you add a little bit of sweet leaf ribbon and self stick bling, you have a fun card that is ready to add a little sunshine for that special friend!

We spent a day at the park yesterday with the kiddos. Eric was working on Ethan and Sydney riding independently, while Wyatt and I strolled around taking pictures. The back drop was beautiful and I love my little models. So, we also had an impromptu modeling session. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from our day at the park.
