Each year I make something for my Mom and my MIL as their Christmas gift.  In fact, it is expected of me.  This year I made my Mom this wall-hanging.  It is made from and old window and I scrapbooked a page for each pane of the window.  Good thing I bought 2 of these windows so I can make one for myself now...LOL

 Pane 1 - My DD shooting Archery for 4-H

 Pane 2 - My DS shooting Archery for 4-H

 Pane 3 - Both kids with backpacks on the 1st day of school, the file folders have a personal message to my Mom from both kids.

 Pane 4 - Both kids in their Santa hats last Christmas, one of my favorite photos of them.

 Pane 5 - both kids singing at our 150th year celebration of our Church, my Mom loves for them to sing at Church.

 Pane 6 - My DH, DD, DS and myself at my nursing graduation.
I copied all photos in Black and White to go along with the old frame look and so I could use coordinating papers without having to worry about color in the photos clashing.  The only thing I did to the window was scrape as much of the paint off as I could and clean it up.  I'm not sure what else I need to do with it to preserve the photos.

Birthday Card for Aunt

My Aunt's birthday is on Christmas Eve and I wanted to try out the paper roses that are such a big hit right now.  (thanks to Tracey Mason I believe for the tutorial).
I embossed the front of the CTMH acrylic card and then added the roses.

"SPOOKY" Chipboard Book

Some of you may know that I make these word books from chipboard....words you can't buy in the stores.  This one I made for Halloween last year before a craft fair and since Halloween is approaching again, I thought I would share it with you.  Thanks for looking!
Place pictures on the pre-decorated pages
On this cobweb page, the pictures slides behind the transparency page of cobwebs so your picture is overlayed with the cobwebs.
More pages for placing photos.

I'm At It Again

Yep!  I am finally a Close To My Heart consultant again after being absent for a few years.  I have completed nursing school, passed boards and am working as a Surgical Floor nurse.  I'm currently getting my scrapbook room reorganized and hope to be able to post pictures soon.  It is looking better but some parts still look as if they have been hit by a tornado....did I miss that big storm?  LOL! 

Come back and visit often to see my new room and what's going on in my creative world.
