The base is 4X4, and each layer is just a 1/4" smaller. The white paper, with the printed information ended up being 2.75X2.75.
I hope you like them!

Since it was sunny, and sort of warm today, we spent some time at J&S where the boys got to play with their cars. Zoe had a great time figiting around in the car messing with everything possible and found a plethera of new things that I had forgotten about. Popsicle mold, clothes and even a candy filled easter (yuck, but whatever, right?!) Of course, it was a perfect opportunity to take some photos for Adam's buddy Logan, who wanted some of his car ('like Adams,' he said)

The song that came out shortly after Knox was born, was 'Big Green Tractor' by Jason Aldean, and I was notorious for dancing around my house with Knox in my arms singing away- which is why for the wedding we are doing this song, as a parent/child dance. I'm going to get to dance with Zoe, since Knox won't be there, but I want to include him in the party.

I used the Sweet Treats Cartridge, and paper from Green at Heart. The card base is Raspberry Fizz from Papertrey Ink the little flowers are from Jolee's and I got them at Lila's Scrapbooking. Ribbon is from Abbey Road.
The cake is cut at 4 inches and assembled with Scotch Quick Dry glue, since I couldn't find my Zig 2 way glue pen!
Today, I'm headed to Snoqualmie Falls to take another set of engagement pictures for my brother and his fiance. I'm looking forward to getting some shots of the falls as well. Maybe if I get a chance, I'll stick some photos of that up tonight.

I am offering a 1-2 hour shoot, with a CD of all digital images and of course I'll edit some of them (so you get b&w, and various other effects) all for $50!
I will do children, families, pets or whatever you'd like. The kicker is that you'd be open to being in my portfolio.
Call me if you'd like to schedule something, or email me and we'll make plans!

Tonight, Adam and I will be taking the time to clean the 'scrap-shop' so I'm sure I'll have a project to share later. Also, I am working on my bridal shower invitations, and they are looking cute, so maybe those will get showed off too!

We've had at least two friends who swear by this method, and really I've just been lazy with potty training, and I know she's ready (since she pees on the potty when she feels like it) so this morning, we started with bagging up all the diapers and throwing them away. (Well, after taking off last nights diaper and peeing on the potty first thing.
So far, she's rocking along and peed 4 times on the potty since about 9 o'clock and it's only 10:26.
Wish us luck!
UPDATE: We are doing SOOOOOOOOOO good for the first day. I've stuck with the no pants rule, and she's played in her panties all day. She hasn't pee'd her pants once! She did have a poopy accident, but I think thats okay. What a big girl!

For her birthday we are going to 'Birthday Bingo Bonanza' so I am taking along my camera, and will be shooting all evening so she has photos to fill it with.
I love how it turned out, and actually like it enough to try and justify keeping it for myself, but since my blog is keeping me honest (lol) I made it for Gina, and to Gina it goes!
Here are the pages, and down lower, is a close up of all the pages....
For this project I used:
ATG gun + Scotch Quick Dry Glue
Paper from Bazzill, DCWV, Green at Heart, Memory Keepers & Bo Bunny
Ribbon from Joannes, Brads Eyelet Outlet
Glitter Glue is G Studios, along with the ink I used to ink the pages.
Flowers are Memory Makers
Of course, my cricut expressions and sweet treats cartridge.
The base is actually a Saltine's Cracker box instead of chipoard! :-)
I attached it all together with eyelets, and clear small zip ties, since I don't have time to stop and bind it! :-) Enjoy!!
I pretty much got to use a little of everything to make a cupcake shaped mini book a friend, who I am going to play Bingo with tonight! I can't wait to show it to her, and I'll add some photos later. I'm still ho-humming on how I'm going to bind it, but I'll figure it out!
