{ 2 Sketches 4 You - Laura's sketch 5 and a challenge }

Where did July go? I have a moment while Alex is napping.
Here is my card for 2 Sketches 4 You. I finally got to play with my Glitter, Foil and Flocking kit by We R Memory Keepers. I got it when I was still pregnant with Alex. I was buying all the baby boy stuff.
Making Memories, Sassafras Lass and American Crafts papers. Little elephant sticker is from Sandylion. I found it at Michael's one day. Journaling spot by Heidi Swapp. I used my glue pen and outlined the edges of the sticker and then I poured glitter...I wanted the edges to be sparkly. The glitter stuck to the elephant so it's all glittery. It like it! This second card is for a challenge at Embellish-It Scrapbooking. Today is my official DT start day. Every Friday we will have a challenge posted. Today it's all about the buttons, use buttons on your project. Check out all the details here.

For my card I used Creative Imaginations patterned paper, ribbon and sticker. It came in a kit. The buttons are from my craft supply.

I left without sharing photos of Alex. He is still sleeping! He is pulling himself up and trying to stand. The other one is from the other day when we went shopping after Gymboree.

  5. Love your ellie card! So sweet! Your birdie card is so special the way you've nestled it in the buttons. The best part for me is Alex! He is just so darn cute, I want to give him a hug! My muffin head grand son Bennett is a year and a half now and I miss him so much! Isablella is 3 1/2 such a princess! They are up in Canada! I will send you a picture of my two babies! I love the outfits you dress your munchkin in! He could model for a baby line! Love him! Hugs and blessings, Deb
