Are you ready for spring?
I know I am! I have started some spring scrapbook and craft projects as well as my step daughter, Melanie's school days scrapbook. It is so hard to believe that she is going to be a high school senior this fall. I am trying to work on the album a little at a time so that I am not rushing to finish it at the last minute. (Just let me have that little delusion, I am pretty sure it won't happen like that but I want to hold the dream for a little bit!)
Melanie was nine years old when I met her Dad. How time flies! Some things about her have not changed one bit, like her headstrong will and her determination. She sure has matured though. It has been a joy and privelege to be a part of her life! Those milestone birthdays came so quickly. She will turn 18 this year. This picture is from a few years ago. She now wears her hair with bangs and she likes to try different colors. Her braces are gone and in their place is a beautiful straight smile. She is studying cosmetology in school.
The page was also one that I made as a sample for my CMC's last crop on Friday evening. The background cardstock and the paper matting the photo are both from The Slab. The letter stickers are Creative Memories. Both of the papers matting the letters are CM. I accented the edges of all the mats with green ink from Close to My Heart. The larger matting on the letters was cut with a Cuttlebug die.
Sorry I haven't been posting frequently. I like to include a photo with my post and I could only do that from my Mom's computer, but I have figured out how to store some pics and start some topics that I can continue from home, so you should hear from me more often! We are up to 28 for the camp crop, if you haven't registered yet don't wait too long!
On a yummy note I made Oatmeal Scotchies tonight! Delicious!

Hi Missy
Missed your blogs! Those cookies made me hungry - I'm making them! I can't wait for the CH crop. Connie says she's coming - just needs to send that check! I bug her daily! So I take it you are liking the Cuttlebug? It tempts me when I see it in Michaels. Well...hope you are doing well! PS - nice work on that scrapbook page. You're so creative!
