Especially for Mom...

It's been a while since I've posted some of my own artwork, but I couldn't resist. My mom's birthday was on Wednesday and I decided to make her a card. I decided to scroll through various sketches in my feeds and came across the one below from CPS - Card Sketches.

And this is what I came up with from the sketch...


I know it's not your typical birthday color scheme, but I wanted to work outside of the box. We're going out to dinner tonight to celebrate. I really hope she likes my handmade card.

Project Life - CTMH Style...

Project Life - CTMH Style has begun! For those of you wondering what Project Life is, it's an album documenting your life daily, weekly or monthly. It's completely up to you! I'm choosing to document my life weekly because it seems a bit more manageable for me. If I forget to take a picture one or two days, I will still have the remaining days pictures from the week to document. I plan to work on this album every Sunday after church or early evening.

Another example can be seen here -

Please note: the example shown in the link is not using photo storage pages, but have given the pages the same look by adhering all of the elements to a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and placed in a 12x12 sheet protector. That is definitely another option.
