Working on it...

Short post:
I'm waiting for my Snapfish pictures to come in the mail, and then I can start my "Big Summer Project"= my scrapbook of the past year. I'm hoping to get a lot of that done while watching the Olympics (can't wait!).
Hope to be posting more soon!

I'm Back!

Ok...I haven't posted in, well, a year, so I'm really confused, since Blogger has totally changed its look in that time.
But let's ignore that for now, shall we, and let celebrate the face that I'm BACK!!!!!!

For those of you who were unaware, I spent a year abroad studing in Israel, but now I'm home, and I'm going ot try to keep my posting regular.
I sadly haven't got the chance to make a single card since I got home, with all the unpacking and shopping and cleaning to do, BUT I'm planning on making a SUPER FANTASTIC AWESOME SCRAPBOOK of my year away, since I have nothing better to do this summer anyways (except watch the Olympics, which I'm PSYCHED for!! Gymnastics, anyone?)

So that's the plan, anyways. I still need to order Snapfish photos before I can start anything, but once I do, I really think I'll get this scrapbook done.   I am committed!

And now for some pictures....

I didn't want to just put up pictures of me and my friends, since this is a card-making blog, and I don't want to put up pictures of anyone who might not want me to do so, so I've searched through my pictures to try to find my crafty-est pictures and any cards I may have taken pictures of. 


Colored sand somewhere in the South:
 Gorgeous sunrise in Eilat:
 Coral reef in Eilat:
 The one card I (GASP!) bought...fro a teacher who had a baby boy :)

Also, let me know if you're interested in seeing the loads of pictures I have of fun foods I cooked and baked and bought in Israel. I'm thinking of starting another blog for baking. What do you think?

Have a great one!

Mazel Tovs all around!
All my mother's friends seem to be having babies, so she asked me to make a bunch of cards for her.
As Murphy's law would have it, I took the pictures on my phone yesterday since I had no camera to take the pictures with and then today, guess what showed up? My new camera, of course!
But my mother already gave away the cards, so I can't re-take the pics. So some of them are sorta blurry.

So here we go, with 3 boys cards are 2 girls ones.

The two girls cards are basically the same and
2 of the boys cards have a similar layout.

That's it!
Please comment and follow my blog!
