About Me

My Photo
I am a retired nurse and at home mom to my 2 beautiful kids Chelsea and Jake. Although my daughter is now going into third year University away from home...she's still with us in the summers. My son will be going into second year at our local University this fall. I find that I have lots of time to scrap and make cards. Lovin' it!

Designer Challenge at MCT


It's time for a designer challenge at MCT!!! This time you have to make a layout using a variety of pockets and envelopes. I kinda crapped out on this one...only one little pocket.

I'll post the finished pic of this LO once the pics are in place...her bday is later this month. This is my daughter's 21st b-day LO for her b-day scrapbook. I do a 2 page spread every year and add it to their birthday scrapbook. I have one for each of my kids...I love flipping through it...they grow as you turn the pages. Anyways...click HERE to check out the other DT projects...maybe they followed the rules better than me :) Try and make your own LO with pockets and envelopes and link it up...we'd love to see it!!
