"It sometimes happens that a woman is handsomer at twenty-nine than she was ten years before." (Persuassion)

This little project was SUPPOSED to be a birthday card for me to send with my class' OWH package next week (I have GOT to take pics of the cards my students made to send to Operation Write Home... it has been inspiring!). BUT I just remembered the no glitter rule... SO I guess I'll hang onto this one until we have a girly birthday again... I stickled Tilda's wings and the frog's crown before I remembered glitter was off limits... BUT I did this one with this week's Magnolia challenge (Think Pink) and Wild Orchid's Pastels in mind. Thanks for looking!

"There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort." (Emma)

I have been in the biggest funk for the past month or so... And it has affected my scrapping, my health, and EVERYTHING. :( BUT... I made myself snap out of it because I have a couple of baby showers coming up in a few weeks (funny, ever since Elijah was born so many people are being bitten by the baby bug... he's going to have LOTS of friends to play with when he gets older!) :)

SOOOOOO... This one is for my old College friend Rachel, who is having a baby girl in November. I'm SO happy for Rachel--she is going to be such a great mommy and she has waited so long for this blessing! :) AND baby girl clothes are SO much cuter than boy ones! :)

Challenges: Charisma Cardz (Vintage)

And this one is for my darling friends Elizabeth and Aris... Elizabeth and Aris were married on May 16th of this year, and are expecting their first bundle of joy in February... Sadly, I missed the wedding because Elijah insisted on arriving two months early; the DAY before the wedding!!!!

BUT, I'm so excited for them because this couple is especially close to my heart... I've known them for over fifteen years (scary) and honestly, Aris has been crushing on Elizabeth since day one. BUT it took them about fourteen years to get it together lol... And now they are on the right track! :)

Challenges: Whiff of Joy (Distressing)

Thanks for taking the time to check out my little creations... Please leave some love if you have time! :)
