All People Love List

Ok this isn't a real crafty post. But I was on this blog Operation Nice  and I saw that there was an assignment to make an All People Love List. I felt inspired to make the list. And in the future to use my list to create some great scrapbook pages. So here is my list.

I love how my husband can make me laugh at any given time. And that it is a full hearted belly laugh that he knows when I need to have, sometimes before I do. I love that I can sit around with him doing absolutely nothing and still enjoy myself.

I love that my daughter has this determination, despite how much it may annoy me at times. It is a determination that I admire. She puts her mind to something and insists on completing whatever the task may be. This determination is going to make her an amazing woman some day. 

I love that my son has this way of loving everyone and everything. He has this tender side that most people try to stifle out of boys. He is 100% boy, but he has this tender hearted light that just shines through his smile! I know if he keeps this, he will be an amazing father and husband some day. I can not wait to see that.

I love that we have neighbors that we can truly trust for anything. I know they will always be there for us. And I love the fact that I have a mom/friend right across the street. It is nice to have a person to go to when I need a "mom" moment and my mom is too far away for me to go to her.

I love that I have friends that I have known most of my life. So many people come and go in our lives. It is comforting to know that I have real true friends that will and have always be there for me. And to top it of they are all a piece of my childhood that I will never have let go of. I can always be goofy with them and they will never fault me for it. I can go to them knowing they will be brutally honest with me. And it wont be out of spite or to be vindictive, I know it will be coming from their heart, because they truly care. They make me feel very blessed.

I challenge everyone who reads this to make a list of your own. You never know, it might just make you feel a little happier when you're done!

Another Wedding Layout

I wanted to play with my piercing tool yesterday. I thought it would b neat to use with a corset. But how often do you have a chance to put one on a scrapbook layout? So I went through photos and decided to use it with ones that were taken the morning of my wedding. Once I made the corset I thought it needed matching panties. lol I love how it turned out.

I random stamped with CTMH's Playful Petals in black. The Card stocks are Black, White Daisy, and Holly Hock. I sand papered on the holly hock in the layout. But left it alone on the flowers. I was hoping it would give a little more dimension to the entire layout. Not sure if I accomplished that. But the flowers are cute none the less.

MIlk Carton Treat Box

I am making a few of these for my family. They will be filled with candy. I think I may hide some other goodies in a few as well. Maybe gift cards? I am hoping to hang them on the tree :)

I used the  CTMH Snow Friends stamps. Yes again LOL I love these guys!

Mini Pocket Album

I got this idea from Tresa Black, A fellow CTMH consultant. She does some amazing work! As well as some ver nice tutorials. I used my little Snow Friends set again. I can't get enough of these cute snowmen. If you want to know how to make this cute little album check out her blog Fabulously Artsy

Memory Showcase Album

I am so into the Christmas mood lately! I just got the new CTMH Merry Pursuits stamps. They are absolutely adorable! I had to do something fun with them. So I made this 6x6 Memory Showcase Album.  I stuck with traditional holiday colors for this one. But I already have ideas flying around my heard for the next one. Zit is amazing how many different things you can do with these albums. And the stamps are too darn cute to not get all creative ;)

Made some Holiday Card Sets

I used two CTMH card kits to make these cards. The Tropical Christmas cards were made using the From me To You card kit. And the Glistening Snow set was made using Just Because card kit. They turned out great. I also broke out my favorite holiday stamp set, Snow Friends. I made a set of cards and a flap top box to hold the cards.
