Happy Early Thanksgiving!

As a parent, I don't think you are allowed to have a favorite child.  However I am pretty sure as a grand parent, you are allowed to have a favorite grand child, right?  I certainly have a favorite and she is the apple of my eye.  Every time I walk past one of the many photos of her around my home, I smile.  Every time I hear her voice, it makes my heart just explode.  I have started sending her holiday cards and I am finding this very fun!  I have started also including a package of stickers with the card too.  I never get to see her open the cards, so I hope it makes her happy and makes her smile when she gets a card from grandma just like she makes me smile.  Here is the card I made for her this weekend to send off tomorrow with some extras:

Isn't this just the cutest card?  I like how it turned out and I made her some Sesame Street characters to put in with her package of stickers.  I made this using my Cricut Explore.  I just love the print and cut feature!  And to make up for the lack of dimension because I did not paper piece these, I cut two of everything (except the leaves and sentiment) and layered them with foam squares.  The interior has a turkey with another leaf.  All the elements on my card are from Create A Critter 2 and the Sesame Street characters are from Sesame Street Seasons.  

I hope you enjoyed my simple and easy card!  It really came together in a flash using my Cricut Explore.  Please feel free to leave me a comment.

Isabeau's First Halloween

Yes, I am still scrapping in 2013 and slowly working my way into 2014.  I thought since Halloween just passed this weekend, I would share this page I did of little Issy's very first Halloween that I just completed.

She was a darling little sheep and her mom and dad were the hungry wolves.  What a cute family, don;t you think?  The cardstock is American Crafts and My Mind's Eye.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to edge my pumpkin paper and I cut a little doily with my Cricut Explore in American Crafts glitter paper to back my journaling card.  All the other embellishments are My Mind's Eye and I used run on letters by Making Memories to add "Isabeau's 1st" to the embellishment.  The photos were matted using Perfect Layers.

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween blast from the past!  Please feel free to leave me a comment.
