All in a days crafting...

This morning I got up feeling a TON better than the previous week. So, this meant CRAFT TIME! I discovered a Craft it Forward Blog Hop was in progress so I jumped in and made a few projects today. I'm totally happy with EVERYTHING I did today. Haven't felt this satisfied with my crafting since the last major crop I went to. Aside from this 100% Boy page, all these projects are dedicated to my Craft It Forward mission and will be donated to a certain somebody (who will remain nameless until they receive them). I can't wait to show them what I've been working on! Hope you get as inspired as I did today! Craft on my peeps.

This layout is a 12x12 and of a photo of my oldest son several years ago. I just love this photo because he still has his baby cheeks which he no longer has :( The title is from my brand new cartridge "boys will be boys" and it fit him perfectly.

This was the first time I had tried a banner. It was....interesting.

But I think it turned out way cute and think I'll be doing them more often. A great way to use up scraps.

I've been wanting to do a flower pot with 3-d flowers for a LONG time. So glad I finally got around to it today. These were a pain in the rear but I'm super happy about how much they pop off the page! This stamp is the sentiment inside.

I found these really cute paper flowers with button centers at Hobby Lobby a while back and just fell in love with them. These were an easy card to whip up and the 3-d buttons just make it that much faster. Very, very cute.

I loved this "smile" cut so much that I just HAD to carry it over onto a layout. I hadn't planned to cut it this big however, but when you press cut and walk away then come back to this size... you change your plans. I love the way it turned out though. And these cards? So fun! The texture plates were a blast to pound on, of course Heath didn't like the noise too much during his movie, OOPS, LOL.

This card is actually for a certain somebody of mine who will be turning 6 this summer. She even helped me make it and has NO idea it's hers! Willow kept saying, "Awe, that's so cute." and "Whoever gets this should hang it on their wall." Well, I'm thinking we just might!
