A Thank you card for the Storytime Librarian

I really haven't done much in the way of scrapbooking since the retreat I went to back at the beginning of November. I only made the cards for the events that were happening currently, mainly birthdays. I never even got the chance to make any Christmas cards...glad I have a few in my stash for the teachers this year. This is the last one for 2013.

Storytime Librarian received this one:
I don't remember which cartridge I found the book in. The tickets were stamped and I pulled out the old deco scissors.

Found this quote below to include as the sentiment. Since there was such fun and entertaining sounds coming for the storytime room. It really fit well!

Super Hero Birthday Card

Finally got to play with this stamp set for a Super Hero Birthday my daughter was going to attend.
Used Superhero papers and stamps that match.

 Colored in using ink markers...would love to learn how to use Copics. But not sure if I need to add another scrapbooking line of tools/markers/inks to my collection.

Stamped the city to the background and added the rub-on from the assortment pack.

Another Hockey Birthday Card - Take 2

For Nephew who seems to Eat.Sleep.Skate. for Hockey this season.

I made a hockey skate using Go Canada Cartridge. Added the black & white twine for laces.

He is a fan of the Tampa Bay Lightning. 
For his birthday cake she mom made the lightning bolt using a turquoise color, which I followed for the stamped lightning bolt and saying. Was excited to find a close lightning stamp in Superhero Workshop stamp.

Inked up the saying for a ice look.

A Birthday Card for a Wine Lover

My mother-in-law's birthday card.

Sticko Stickers - Wine & Glass on Ink Distressed Shape

This year was hard for her as far a birthday milestones go. So I saying she says often added to the sentiment to fit. "Your only as old as your mind feels you are..."

So, with my mother-in-law's feeling for this birthday the saying "Aged to Perfection" was not what she was looking for so I found this one on a CTMH stamp set. Fit perfectly for the wine and her mind.

The rest I never posted from the retreat back at the beginning of November.

I had a bunch of pictures and papers in mind for a long time to do some pages. Just never got the 2 together until now!

Here is my daughter listening to her brother's heartbeat back in 2009...  DOCTOR BECK is in!
Sticker Tags were places around the photo collage style but also to hide those different things you only notice after the picture is developed. My husband took the pictures so even if it is those daily life type things. I really didn't need the laundry basket in there!

 This one you can guess and be right on your own what might be hiding under the tag! 

My little nurse made for the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge.

Just need to add the date.

This next page was done using a favorite shot of my son while we were out somewhere.
Some vellum sayings and tabs.

 Edge distressed - one of my favorite techniques.

Going to have to pick my husband's brain to see where we were and add a journal card.

Getting ready for you to arrive....
Some baby blue cotton twill ribbon across the patterned paper and cardstock. Then I finally pulled out these mixed blues pre-adhesive buttons I had. Using Posterboard Alphabet stamps and some mini silver embossed button stickers I had got put to use.

Polka Dot Alphabet and Whimsy? Alphabet stamps

Started working on a page with the Baby Announcement.

Another page in the planning stages started. My Newfie Loonie...I think this might have been one of those first pictures take after we started dating.

Well that it from the retreat!
