Mojo Monday Week 84

It seems like I have a lot of events coming up shortly for which I'll be needing cards. So I've been browsing blogs because it seems to me that the only way I'll get cards done for all these events is by participating in challenges. I love a good challenge, and I love winning even better!

I've heard of Mojo Monday before and I know a lot of people that do their challenges so I decided to start with their challenge this week. I obviously need two Mother's Day cards this year so I decided to start with those. Here is a copy of the sketch from Mojo Monday
and here is the card that I made.

I'm not sure which mother will be getting this particular card yet but I'm seriously impressed with myself for getting it finished. Noah and I have been having sort of a rough week and yesterday was particularly taxing on me and my nerves. I think he's going through a growth spurt and doesn't want to give in to his feelings of exhaustion. Isaac is home today and I'm SO glad for the reprieve.

I have a few other card challenges that I'm planning on working on today so who knows, I may have multiple posts this week! LOL.

Easter Layouts

Wow, I've been working on these pages for a week now. I can't believe how long it has taken me! Noah really takes up my scrapping time. The only way I finished these was by moving a small table into our bedroom and scrapping from 9-11:30pm before he wakes up for a feeding. But, alas, they are finally done!

We had such a wonderful trip home for Easter, however brief it was. It was a joy to see my Grandparents hold Noah. He did wonderfully on both plane rides and was a trooper being passed from person to person. He's a little celebrity in his own right.

Supplies From CTMH:
Emporium Level 2 Paper Pack, Friendship Alphabet Stamp Set, Easter Eggs Stamp Set, Liquid Glass, Creative Clips, Clear Buttons, White Daisy Just Blooms, Colonial White Ric-Rac, Colonial White Waxy Flax, Crystal Blue Ink, Sweet Leaf Ink, Buttercup Ink

Welcome To My Blog!

I am so excited to finally be creating a blog on which to share my artwork and the wonderful products Close To My Heart has to offer! I have been a scrapbooker for the better part of 10 years and a consultant with Close To My Heart for nearly 4 years now. I became a consultant after attending a gathering and seeing both how easy it was to do what the consultant did and how amazing the range of products they offered was. I wanted to purchase everything in the catalog that day. I did a little research and found that the benefits offered to the consultants were substantial and within a week I had signed up. I have been sharing my passion with others ever since!

What can you expect from this blog? First and foremost, you'll find my personal artwork created with the wide array of products offered by Close To My Heart to both inspire you and to provide ideas on how to use these products. Secondly, I'll keep you up to date on all the specials and promotions being offered by Close To My Heart. Thirdly, I'll post pictures and information about my classes and workshops so that you'll never miss a project. (Not in my area? No problem! I have many customers across the country that participate in both classes and workshops by mail. They receive everything they need to create the same projects and can do it at their leisure.) Finally, you'll find lots of stories about life in the Yang house and what a circus it can be!

I hope that you enjoy my blog and be sure to leave comments. I look forward to getting to know many other paper addicts out there and keeping in contact with those already in my "support group"!
