Happy Friday everyone!!!

So this week has been totally CRAZY what with all of the CHA stuff going on!
I have seen SO MANY amazingly adorable/beautiful lines in
 the past week its just been mind blowing!

Not only that but I spent a great deal... and I mean an alarmingly large
amount of time at the Two Peas web site participating in all of the awesome online socials and
contests. Watching Jamie's fantastic videos, drooling over new products that
I "must have" while trying to convince the hubby all the while
that its perfectly okay to drop a serious amount of cash on paper, stickers, stamps etc...
We will see how that goes :P

So far I have entered in two of the CHA challenges. You have until the end of this week so get a'crackin people!!!
My first entry was for the Try something new challenge.

I have a friend from college who is suffering from Lyme disease. Lately things have gotten really painful and shes been having a hard time coping and I just wanted to send her a beautiful green themed handmade card to show her that I'm thinking of her.

I have never (believe it or not!!!) Used a combination of pins and felt before and I just love the way that
this particular card turned out! The gorgeous pins are new from Maya Road and
I have only awesome things to say about them.

My second entry was for the Ten things Challenge

I loved using the pins in the last challenge so much that I grabbed a few different styles and used them again!
For our wedding vows my husband and I had incorporated a few of the things that we loved most about each other. After seeing this "ten things" CHA challenge I figured what a perfect layout for these! There are five of the things I love about him and 5 of the things he loves about me for a total of ten :) This layout was tons of fun for me and I am just in love with it!!!

I am thinking that this may have to go in a frame for the wall of my scrap room!

Lastly but absolutely not leastly!!! 
(drum roll please)
I spend the better part of yesterday afternoon at my husbands stripe ceremony.
He is now officially SSgt. Laurent for the US Air Force.
The best part?! I got to go up with his commander and tack his new stripes on.
By tack I mean we each hold his arm and "punch" them on. lol
I am so proud of you baby!

And of course a few pictures for good measure :)
Receiving his certificate

Blurry I know... I am NOT pleased

Staff Sgt. Laurent and the proud wifey :)

Okay I am done bragging (for now!)
I will be posting some of my favorite new lines from the Summer CHA 2010 shortly so keep your eyes peeled!


  1. Both your card and your layout are beautiful! You really do wonderful work!

  2. Aw thanks a lot ! I have been working non-stop lately between my scrapping, my business, this blog and trying to get on a design team... lots of goals to be reached!

  3. I agree, they are both lovely, and yes, you should put the LO in a frame on a wall, but make sure it's somewhere people can admire it!

  4. Yes! FAR TO CUTE! The vows one is AMAZING!

  5. Lovely LO! I am an AF wife too. Congrats on the promotion, I know how hard everyone works to earn those stripes!

  6. Congrats, you are a lovely couple.
