Lil' Tomina

I made this collage for a friend from church. Her little one arrived this past week. She is named after her very special Aunt. I wanted it to coordinate with the one I made for her brother, Kaelen, but wanted to girlify it a bit. I used the same Monkey (Cricut, New Arrival) and foliage (Cricut, Paper Doll Dress Up) as I used for Kaelen's but ventured out with My Scrap Chick's "Jungle Zoo Safari Too" to make the little girl explorer and hippo.

This baby collage was for my second cousin's little one. (I think that makes Lucy my second-cousin-once-removed :) ) She was born in early June, but I was finally able to get it to her this past weekend. (On which, by the way, my nephew Ari made his official appearance into the world!) My daughter Melissa made the crocheted flowers. If you love crochet or other yarn crafts she has a blog, Joy 2 Crochet, dedicated to it.
I finally broke down and ordered from My Scrap Chick. I am so glad I did! I absolutely love the look as well as the ease of use with Make the Cut. Both the bird and birdhouse are from their website. There should be lots more projects to come, because I went back and ordered a second time once I found out how easy the svg files were to size and break apart for colors.

Student Driver Warning

My second born is taking Driver's Ed right now. I was given some vinyl and a chunk of magnet sheet last week and was inspired to make a sign to warn others of her student driver status. (As well as the panicked Mom riding along :) ) So far, this has helped other drivers to give much more space and hopefully they are more tolerant to boot. (In case you're wondering, the font is Cheri.)

A Really Special Baby Gift

I am so excited to finally be able to post this baby collage. It's for my little nephew due in just a few weeks. The first baby (other than my own) for my side of the family. I really like how this turned out!
Verse reads: "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them,for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6

The name Ari means "Lion"
I used the lion from the cartridge, Everyday Paper Dolls. It's cut three times (2 in beige and one in brown.) trimmed and chalked around the edges. I then layered using mounting tape. The bushes and grass are from the same cartridge.
