The Creating Blog Hops Cafe' - Mini Album Blog Hop

Happy Saturday
Welcome to this months Blog Hop
The Creating Blog Hops Cafe'
This month we have made some Mini Albums to share with you. If you have just stopped by to visit with me, thank you and welcome, but please start at the beginning of the hop with our Hostess, Robin Lane with Create-A-Latte
We would not want you to miss any of these wonderful projects.
So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.

Shhhheeessshhh...........I finally was able to actually participate in a hop.  Unfortunately, our family has been having a string of losses and/or bad luck since January.  Thankfully, things are getting somewhat better for us.  We're learning to cope and move on. 

For my project, I made a brag book showcasing my GORGEOUS grand babies {yes, I'm biased, LOL}

Brayden, the oldest with his baby cousin, Cayden.

Hilton is number 3 and is 3 years old!  LOL 

Michael, III is Hilton's little brother and is actually grand baby number 4!  How about those beautiful baby blues!

Then we have Cayden who was grand baby #5 and stole his Nana's heart from day one!

And last but by far not least is baby #6 - Princess Aria, Cayden's baby sister.  I love the new born pic of her holding her daddy's finger and laying her head on his hand.  Needless to say he was smitten from the moment he laid eyes on her! 

 I left some pages empty because....well I ran out of printer ink and couldn't finish printing the pics.  Also we are getting another baby later this year!  All total we have 5 grandsons and 1 princess!  Missing from the book is Derek, grandson #2 who is 5 and his pic printed orange.  For now I'll add his pic to the post so he isn't completely left out.  

I hope you enjoyed getting to know my sweet babies!

Now how about the grand prize info for this month...........

Mother's Day Card with An Angel Stick Pin

Hey, Hey, Hey it's me again with a card to share featuring an Angel Stick Pin from Pinque Peacock
I'm getting a head start on Mother's day.  

My watering can with the flowers can be found on Kate's ABCs Cricut Cartridge.  I can't seem to resist these Angel Pins, they have got to be my absolute favorite!!!  My ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and my sweet stamp is from Cardz TV Stamps. 

Did I happen to tell you how much I love and adore my Mommy?  She is my very best friend!!!!

Have a Great Weekend!

Hello Friend!

Good Morning!  How are you guys?  I know I've not been around much, so much going on in my life these days.  I can't seem to find the time to craft!  {GASP} I do have a new grand-baby, finally a GIRL!!! And to top that, we found out this past weekend, we are going to be grandparents again!  That's number 7 for us!  WHEW!!!!  I may need a second job just to cover holidays!  LOL

Today is my day to post over at Pinque Peacock!  I made an any occasion card.  

I used my Spectrum Noir markers which you can pick up over at Pinque Peacock's Shop, to color my image.  I have a lot to learn about coloring with markers.  LOL  But I'll keep trying.  I also added a cute button which can also be found in the shop, it's part of the Hello Kitty set.  


A pic of Princess Aria.......

Thanks for stopping by!  
Until Next Time...........

If you just came by to visit with me, thank you, but please start at the first stop with our hostess, JANET of Janet's  Creative World.  If you have been hopping with us and came from JEARISE, then you are at the right spot.

Janet is also offering a fantastic giveaway. 

Here's her description of the giveaway that you DON'T want to miss!! Close To My Heart Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit. Includes card bases, envelopes, cardstock, double sided paper, a stamp set, and washi tape, glitter tape and other embellishments to make 10 cards! Valued at $45.00! You can win this by leaving comments on each blog, and if you're not currently a follower, why not follow the blogs because there's always fun in this group and a blog hop each month to inspire you!

Here are my creations for this month's hop:

I couldn't decide which project I wanted to make so I made both.  The tea cup was cut at 5 inches from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More using my Cricut.  My rose pillow box was also cut at 5 inches from the Wrap It Up Cartridge.  Both were edged with some silver ribbon from Walmart.  Either can be used as a favor box or as a gift.
