Happy First Birthday, Little Kai!

Posted on

Hello, Friends!

Today is my second grandson’s very first birthday!  He is just the sweetest, most even tempered and happy little guy ever and I hate to miss this important milestone.  I hope to make up for it by sending our love in this special birthday card.

I used paper from a Die Cuts With a View baby themed paper pack along with cardstock from Close To My Heart.  The Cricut cuts were mainly from Baby Steps and When I Was a Kid with a few other cuts from Cricut Access.  The idea for “Mr. ONEderful” came from Pinterest and is perfect for Kai as he truly is a WONDERFUL child!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Isn’t it fun to be a crafter and make individual, unique cards for the special people in our lives?   Make it a ONEderful day!   Laurie


Summer Water Fun at BBTB2!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

I’m so happy to host the challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week!  I chose the theme Summer Water Fun for you all to play with this week.  Of course, your first thought might be the beach or pool, but what about sprinklers, slip and slides, surfing, boating, fishing, water skiing, water balloons, kayaks, cruise ships and so much more?  And if you live in hot, dry, rural Nebraska, your main water fun might involve irrigation pipes or pivots!

I chose to document the first time my new grandson went swimming in the family’s backyard pool.  I saw a similar project on Pinterest where the waves were rows of torn paper, but I decided the Cricut could do the work for me.  The wave cuts are from Crocs Rule and the title is from When I Was a Kid.  All the cardstock is from Close To My Heart and the stamped images are also from CTMH.  This little guy is certainly “born to swim”!!

Please take a minute to stop over to Bitten by the Bug 2.  There are some wonderful design team projects related to Summer Water Fun that you won’t want to miss!  Then link up your own projects for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope your week is off to a great start!    Laurie
