Cantrell Chrismas

I have been trying to get caught up on some of my scrapbooking. I am so far behind. I wanted to do a 1st year album of all of my kids. Well, I am still working on my oldest 1st year album and I am only at his 3rd month. I have a lot of work to do. As some of you may know I have 4 boys so getting time to craft is not easy at all. My last 2 boys are twins so they keep me on my toes.

Here is a layout that I did of Clay's 1st Christmas with the Cantrell side of the family. On this layout I used the CTMH book Cherrish to get the layout design. I also used some of their stamps and some Bazzil cardstock.

On this circle I used some ribbon to cover the circle to give it a unique look.

Time to move again!

Well Uncle Sam has decided that it is time for us to move to a new base. We will be moving to Dyess AFB in Abilene, TX. Things here are starting to get crazy before the move. One good thing about moving is that you are forced to go through  all your stuff and weed out the things that you don't need anymore. Right now our garage is a total mess. We have piles of trash, piles of things to give away, and piles of things to donate.

Another great thing about moving is that we will be moving within 3 hours of family. We have not been that close to family in 13 years. I am so excited to have my kids be able to get to know their extended family. Growing up my extended family was always together even though we lived about 7 to 8 hours apart.

We only have about 2 1/2 weeks left and time seems like it is flying. I am so ready to say bye to North Dakota and hello to Texas. The weather is gonna be alot warmer and no heavy snow to shovel. I will miss the snow, but not shoveling the driveway. Although you do get a great workout doing the driveway. I do plan on crafting sometime this weekend to finish up a few layouts and some cards. I hope to post those next week. Til next time!

Cody's Birthday Card

Cody's 8th  brithday was on 18 September so our house is very busy for September. I made his card using SU cardstock and designer paper. I also used the robot stamp from the Stamps of Life. Click on Stephanie's link (to the right) to the Stamps of Life and check out her stamps. AMAZING!

We wanted to give the boys something that they have wanted for a while. As you guessed it we got both of the boys a new guitar. Cody is left handed so finding him a guitar was not easy. We had to order it so that is why the card is an I owe you card. The guitar didn't make it for his birthday, but arrived just a few days after. Cody seems to love his new guitar and we hope to get him lessons soon.

Clay's Birthday Card

Well I did make Clay a birthday card  and used some of my new Close to My Heart Stamps. Clay had his 12th birthday this year on September 16th. Wow how time flies. I still think that he should still be a baby. I also used some Stampin Up cardstock. I think that the designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket and the inside stamp is from Stampin Up.
