October Stamp of the Month: Holiday Magic Blog Hop

Pin It
Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you are new to the hop, here is how it works: About 60 fellow Close to My Heart consultants all make a piece of art (scrapbook page, card, specialty item, etc) using the Stamp of the Month. They all include links to eachother's blogs so that anyone can begin on any blog and hop from blog to blog which eventually becomes a big circle. Easy right?! It is a great way to view many different ideas using one stamp set which is available only that particular month, so don't miss out! Now let's get started. You can start here or if you've come here from Traci Pasqualone's blog then you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way, you can see a full list of participants here.  I wanted to try using non-traditional papers with this set so everyone could see how versatile they are, so you can see what I came up with below.

Busy September!

Pin It
Whew!  It has been a busy September!  Between the kids starting school, the teacher's strike, soccer, and my sister's wedding, things have been crazy!  Here are a few photos that were taken in the three days. The teacher's strike has allowed us to do a few extra fun things.
Getting nails done with Grandma before the wedding.

Matches her shirt!

Pretty starburst embellishment!

My beautiful sister on her wedding day! Yes, my camera needs to be fixed so my daughter took this from my phone.

Pretty flower girl!

My wonderful cousin Lauren invited us up to Carnation, WA to ride her horse. My daughter was in heaven!

Sit up straight and smile!

She was doing an obstacle course by the end

We stopped at Snoqualmie Falls on our way home from horseback riding.
