Give Me Your Eyes

This is my very first challenge! I did this layout for Scrapping To The Music! The whole challenge is based on a song of the week. This weeks song was Give Me Your Eyes. I loved doing it. I used my cricut for the corner piece, the title and the florish under the title. Also to cut the patterned paper out. The matting for Santino's pics I used Tim Holtz distress inks and then glimmer misted away for a really pretty marbling effect.

Guess what, I missed the deadline, Ha!!! I thought it was mountain time and it was central so I was off by an hour. There I was in my kitchen just creating away and low and behold I made a booboo :p Oh well, I'm going to share this layout along with card I made today. Let me just say, my blood is boiling right now because I messed up and I really would like to scream, but I'll count to 10 and just continue with my posting....Oh and to hear the song, go to my playlist and click on # 72

He really does have some expressive eyes! I have so many photos of him with some of the greatest faces thanks to the eyes he gives. He was still a baby here, my boy is growing fast.

I made a few of these cards as thank you's and the final card swap I needed to get out, sorry Court *wiping egg off of face*. I used my stampin up stamp which I think is very elegant, did some light stickling to enhance and I stamped the inside too. They came nice.

Next week I WILL get my piece in on time!! Hope you like what I did.

On another note, today was Victoria's 29th birthday! Amazing, I have a child that will be 30 next year, and tomorrow is my husband's birthday. We'll be celebrating both on his day. The older kids all went for sushi and I watched the granddaughters. They brought me home some and didn't tell me till I ate it, that I consumed eel!!!! Aaaahhhh, but it was good ;) My 18 yr old son is a wisenhoofer. He kept saying, "Mom ya still have one here, hurry up and eat it." Should of guessed something was up. I also made a cheesecake, since that's what Victoria wanted for her cake, and dinner will be fried shrimp, scallops, and fettucine alfredo, yum yum yummy!
