Scrapping along

Yep, that's what I did this past weekend. I actually had an urge to scrap just to scrap! Usually my only real push is because I have design team stuff due and then I fizzle out for the remainder of the month, but not this time. I felt the "push" and had to go with

Both layouts use Cosmo Cricket Get Happy and both feature that little boy of mine :D

and this one uses a Creative Scrappers sketch

That's all I managed to get to, but it was enough for me. Maybe I will get the feeling back

Oh, I forgot to post this. I actually started this project in my mind last year and never got to it. I made it for my stepson's mom. I know most current wives and ex-wives don't get along, but Jen and I do. I think she's a great gal and we've even hung out a few times. I really admire her for her strength and courage. She faced a tough battle with breast cancer a couple years ago, fought it, and won the battle! I wanted to give her something to show how much I know her boys love her. So fast forward to the Thursday night before Mother's Day and I jump at it. I threw together a layout, found a poem online that seemed like it was made just for her, printed it, and then put it in a frame. Travis gave it to his mom on Mother's Day and it brought her to tears....I love making gifts that evoke tears (not in a bad She called and thanked me. I told her I'm glad I could show her how much her boys love and appreciate her.
Excuse the coloring because I took this at night and, of course, we know that's a no-no if you want a good shot.

Okay, I'm off to finish my yard work. I just needed a bit of a break :D

Very cute layouts Tami. I just love Cosmo's Get Happy Line. I find myself reaching for those papers time and time again. They are just so much fun. Your Tough Guy layout just cracks me up...boys are funny, aren't they?
