Hurray for Summer!

I've been able to stamp everyday this week. I love it!! I have been stamping during naptime and when Nate goes to bed at night. It's been great to just sit down and stamp in peace..
My 'peace' is typically while watching a horror movie on the Chiller channel. LOL. Either that, or watching my DVD of Copycat. You see, in my former life, I wanted to be a forensic psychologist. I am fascinated by the human mind. Well, being a special education teacher is similar I suppose... I still get to try and find out what the mind is doing and why :) Tonight I watched a movie about Ed Gein- he is real life inspiration behind Silence of the Lambs and Psycho. Very interesting movie.

Well on to the stamping!

First was for a challenge on PW using buttons. I sewed on buttons for the very first time!
I used the retired Hostess Set, In Bloom (one of my faves), cardstock from Amberley Grace, and the sentiment from Seeds of Friendship.

This next card was for a Color Combo Challenge on PW. It was to use dark purple, pink and white. Stamps are from Seeds of Friendship, Mini Occassions, and In Bloom.

Finally is a card made for the PW inspiration challenge. It was a picture of a little kiddie cottage. It screamed Mimi Collection to me! Stamps are from Fancy Curls, Bookoo Blessings, and the LE Big on Fun Roses Set. Once again I can't get this picture to show correctly. If anyone can help, just let me know!

Finally, is the project I made for Sam for Father's Day. I saw this in the Nov 07 Scrapbooks Etc magazine and had to make it! I was quite easy. It features papers from SEI, MME, and SU.

Below is a closer pic. I plan on making 2 more- one for the FIL, one for my Dad. I am proud of how it turned out! I used rubber cement to adhere the paper/pics, rather than modge podge.

I made all three cards today but the Star was a couple weeks ago, I just kept forgeting to post! I also submitted my first 2 contest entries to TAC. Winners get $75 gc for free stamps. I am super proud of my submissions and hope I win one. Wish me luck!

Until next time, happy stampin sistahs!
