YOU: create







I missed the last couple of weeks posting with Sara over @ Gitzengirl so I was determined to join in this week even though I'm out of town!  I was really excited when she started several weeks ago because I LOVE to create things, and this will give me some incentive to get the glitter out! 

Having said that, there was no glitter this week! :)  I've been out of town staying with my sister and helping my niece transition into her own bed and her own room!  I think we've succeeded....so that's my accomplishment for this week! 


I remember my first child....18 years ago this month!  We put her in the bed with us and she slept there for 4 years until our second one came along!  Our next two kids never had a chance...they went straight to their baby beds! :)  My niece is 20 months and my sister's first and only baby, so she's ahead of the game according to my time table!

Logan and I are leaving today to go home.  We have been here for 6 days.  He and Rylee have had a great time playing together!


So much fun, in fact...that this was a common scene :)


In keeping with our topic, CREATE, and in anticipation of Fall (I'm always anticipating Fall),I thought I'd post a past project.  

A Happy Fall Card for a friend


I love scrapbooking scissors, pretty paper, polka dots, girly fonts, layers, glitter, and brown stamping ink for distressing edges! Oh yeah...and PINK!

Happy Thursday everyone!!  Don't forget to check out all the other blogs that linked up today with Sara at Gitzengirl!

See ya next week! :)

Oh that card is SO pretty!! I would be so happy to get something like that in the mail - how fun!

Oh my gosh, the kids are super adorable... but I love that you ended up showing us a little glitter anyway :)

And I love when people take the time to use distressing ink on the edges... it's amazing how much more "finished" things look!
