Sugar and Spice...


Hello!  I wanted to play along with the Mojo Monday contest this week, and I've also been dying to ink up this new to me Verve set To the Moon~so CUTE!!!  I decided to make a baby girl card, and I used this fab Echo Park Paper Co. Little Girl dp.  I threw in a little stitching and some buttons, and called it complete!  Here is the sketch:

I also wanted to share a couple of pictures I took of my kiddos the other day.  This week in my photo class we are learning about Depth of Field, so I was trying to blur out the background:


Avery


Landon


Avery and Carson


Avery playing soccer (look at her out there with all of those boys, and she's faster than most of them too!)

I'm so glad I'm learning how to use my camera! 

One more thing before I go.  Really Reasonable Ribbon is dedicating this whole week to Ribbon Organization!  Every day one of the DT members is showing how they organize their ribbon, and there are also some AWESOME prizes up for grabs so make sure you check it out HERE!  I will have my organization post up on Saturday:)  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

I happened to see the blog winners for the Mojo Monday contest. And it brought me to your blog. Your card is nicely balanced, beautiful stitching, and the colors really set the theme for your sentiment. Lots of well executed talent.
