Valentine's Box & Tag

This week the SweetSassyDiva DT was asked to make something other than a card or layout for Valentine's Day. I made this cute little box and matching tag all using Platin Schoolbook and Design Studio. I cut it all out of the same red textured cardstock (from my stash). I glued white on the back of the tag and cut it out to make the back of the tag match the front. I stamped the Bee Mine stamp on the white side with red ink. The ribbon is from Michaels and the bow on the box was in my stash. I used a white gel pen to outline the "x's" and dash the hearts. I accidently folded my box up inside out.. other wise it woulda been x, heart, x, heart but oops.. it still works. Hope you like it!

Paper - white paper and red textured cardstock
Other - white gel pen, red ink pad, red ribbon, white ribbon, red & white ribbon, and Bee Mine Stamp from Michaels.

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!

Valentines day card

Valentines day card I made for my husband. Hope you like it. The circle I cut out with Simply Charmed.. it was the beachball for the white one and the beach ball shadow for the black circle @ 3 inches. The hearts were also cut from simply charmed. The ribbon I got from the $1 bin at Michaels awhile ago. I made both the black paper & the white and red paper using ink & white paper.

Happy 1st Birthday Baby Girl!!

So... today is a very special day (and a sad one at the same time)... today my baby girl, Jayden, turns 1! At exactly 1:46pm PSt Jayden will officially be 1 year old. I cannot believe how fast she's grown!

Jayden has been the best baby ever.. she's slept throught the night since she was born (we had to wake her for feedings but other than that.. a big sleeper), shes said her first word (Mama) when she was only 4 months old and has been talking since! And took her first steps on Black Friday. She hardly ever crys and has been on over 17 airplane trips (not quite sure it's possibly 20 already). Adam & I are truly blessed! We love her so much!

So, for todays post since we'll be busy celebrating (taking her to her fav restaurant, the Olive Garden, for dinner and taking pics, etc.)... Im just gonna post some pics of her monthly photoshoots (and some extras that are on this computer).. I don't have all the pics of her on this computer, if I did there would be a LOT more.. my favs over the past year.. but I'll work with what I have. So here are a few pics!

One of her MANY ultrasound pics.. I had to have an Ultrasound done once a week after I had my cerclage put in and slowly down to one every other week.. I had wayy more than 20 ultrasounds.

This is one of my fav Ultrasound pics.. shes sucking on her toes :D

One of my fav from the 3D ultrasounds (I had 3 3D ultrasounds done).. she looks so cute in this one just like shes day dreaming.. her head is on her elbows and her elbows are on her knees.

January 11, 2010 - Just hours after she was born Jayden is laying on me with her best friend Nelly (the seahorse)!

Look at those tiny feet!!! so dry and cracked :( poor thing..

This is still up there in my top 10 fav pics of Jayden & Daddy.. this was taken while in the hospital after she was born

One of my fav pics of me & Jayden.. we're in the hospital and I'm burping her :)

Sleeping in the hospital with some toys :)

This is definitly one of my all time favs of Jayden.. I took this on the 13th In the hospital.. shes laying in the crib thingy.. I love this one so much it was not only used for her birth announcements but Adam had it made into a silver charm for my charm necklace!

I cut both the baby boy and girl out at 2.5inches. The background paper is wrapping paper I got when I first got pregnant with my baby, I cut the wrapping paper to fit the card. I wrote "It's a..." with a black Glaze pen and the "BOY!" & "GIRL!" are both the $1 glitter glue from Michaels. Fairly easy and super cute!!

Paper - 2 shades of blue, 3 shades of pink, black & patterned paper (wrapping paper for mine)
Other - blue glitter glue, pink glitter glue, ATG gun, Zig glue, black Glaze pen, Simply Charmed

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
