I heart faces -- Jump

Photo Challenge Submission

I recently got a new camera and so I am trying to improve my photography skills. I am entering some photo contests to help motivate me! Here is my entry for the I heart Faces contest with the theme jump. This is a photo of my brother in law learning to jump with the wakeboard behind the boat. This time didn't go so well and ended in a crash! If you want to see some of the other amazing entries then click in the image above.

Valentine's Day!

I have had a really fun time creating my Valentine's day this year. I always have loved Valentine's Day because it is all about love and friendship. As a kid it was especially fun to give out little Valentines to all of my friends. I have made some new stuff this year and all of my items from last year are still available. Here is what I have created recently:

Mother's Day

I love to celebrate mothers. I was blessed with an incredible mother and I have grown to appreciate her so much more now that I am a mother myself.  Here are some of the items that I have created this year to celebrate Mother's Day. If you are interested you can click on each photo and it will take you to my store on etsy.

Weddings Galore!

I have two siblings getting married this summer so all things wedding have been on my mind. I have created a couple of bridal shower invitations that I am using for various showers this spring but they are also available in my store. I will be adding more because I am full of ideas right now!

Linked up on Tatertots and Jello

I used the Memories kit from Just so Scrappy

I used Backyard Blooms by Kristin Cronin-Barrow

I used Secret Recipe from Connie Prince and Mye De Leon

A New Project

Here is what I have been working on lately. The template I used is a free one from Paislee Press and  I got the idea from Tatertots and Jello (they had tons of great ideas for using photos in your home). I will be displaying these around my house in frames that I got from Ikea for $17.99. So it will cost about $20 for each one. That is not too bad.  I think it will be a great way to display my favorite photos from each year (in addition to my scrapbooks of course). Decorating with photos is my favorite thing!

I altered the template a little for this one. I wanted less pictures and this worked out well.

My Valentines

Here are the valentines that  I and my little daughter will be giving out this year. I have a few more things I will be putting together for friends and I will post them when I get them all made.

This is the valentine that I am sending to the Grandma's and other family members.
We also decided to send valentines to her cousins this year. They are all far away but we had a fun time creating something for them to get in the mail. We attached little flip flop key chains to the tag. the flip flops were available at oriental trading and Amazon but the cheapest ones I found were at Walmart for $2.50 plus .97 shipping.
Here is how they turned out:

I hope the cousins like them when they show up in the mail!
