{ First Car, 2 Sketches 4 You, Happy Anniversary }

Well, we were shopping for a car for Alex, but we didn't get it. He was too small then, and was falling through the hole on the bottom where the feet go.

This is my very first layout created for My Scrapbook Nook. The August kit is filled with October Afternoon Road Map paper, American Crafts, Making Memories, 7 gypsies and Maya Road... What do you think?

I finally made a card for a fun sketch, 2 sketches 4 you #32. I decided that I needed to get back into my stash and all the new stuff I got recently. I used scraps of October Afternoon paper. The journaling spots were on sale for $1 at Michael's last month. They are by Me and My Big Ideas.

Remember the OWL stamps I bought last week? I love them!!!! No problems inking and stamping. Amy asked in the last post if I had any problems. I do with Stampin' Up inks. The ink beaded up...I was having the same problem with the heart, but I needed the red to match the card, Ruby Red. I used my pencil eraser to "erase" over the stamp and it worked like a charm. No beading up. It is our Anniversary today, 4 years. We celebrated with a nice dinner out, just the three of us.

This is us now.

This is us then...

  9. Happy Anniversary! and I loved the first car layout - my boys have almost the same exact car and I just took some photos of them with it a few weeks ago - someday I am planning a "then" and "now" type layout...now our poor car is very neglected looking and sitting out looking unloved behind the swingset...they really do grow up much too fast!
