Hi everyone, I'm here with my final project as my guest design spot over at Your Next Stamp, I have had such a blast playing along with the challenges, the featured post and the big birthday bash at the beginning of the month, wow, what fun!!!

I am leaving with an 8x8 layout, using the camera, insta love, and we click image and sentiment from the INSTA LOVE stamp set.  I really love this set, I think it's perfect with all the instagram pics and Project Life/pocket pages that are available now...just so fun!  I used papers from Simon Says Stamp 2012 card  kit and the gold "crushing" and stars are from Heidi Swapp....LOVE the gold!  I paper pieced the camera, added some stamped polka dots, a couple different papers and elements from the kit.

This is one of my fav pics of me and the husband and is the first layout I've done in over a year.....maybe two, it's been a long time!  I really love how it turned out and now I've got the itch to start back into my Project Life and scrapbooks, yay :D

To Protect and Serve

I had the honor yesterday of attending my son's police academy graduation and see him officially become a law enforcement officer.  My emotions have been on high alert for the past several days, a mix between pride, excitement and worry. I am proud of him for his perseverance, dedication, hard work, sweat and tears (try getting sprayed with pepper spray), OUCH!  From here on out he will be on the streets in field training, and I have to just keep a prayer in my heart so I don't worry myself sick.

I was married to his father who is also a police officer for 11 years, I am now married to a former member of the National Guard who retired with 20 years of duty, and now I am seeing my son enter the policing profession.  I am in awe at the courage and discipline, the willingness to serve and protect, to help and to put their own lives in danger, and to sacrifice. Words can't really express how grateful I am for their service, for ALL law enforcement officers and for all members of the military, for the feeling of patriotism when saying the pledge of allegiance and just seeing these men and women in uniform, there is such a feel that is almost spiritual and sacred in nature.

I was so impressed with the graduation ceremony, with the way these brand new officers stood at attention, without moving a muscle during the presentation of the badges, they moved only to accept their badges and move forward for the next person.  It was very professional and I was truly overwhelmed with a sense of pride for my son, for all law enforcement, for this amazing country and for a great and wonderful  God.

I made this card for my son, it is a KennyK image and is absolutely perfect!  I had to quickly put it together because I've been so busy lately, so it's very simple in design, but I think it turned out great!

Life is Good-LMMS Inspiration Thursday

Happy Thursday to ya!  Over on the FB page for Little Miss Muffet Stamps we have a lot of inspiration going on,  I have created this card using Polka Dot Pals Mitzi and Polka Dot Pals Lemonade Stand, I also used the sun, clouds and corner tree border from Miss Kate Cuttables.  I think it adds for such a fun summery scene!

Did anyone ever do lemonade stands when younger?  I sometimes will see kids around town givin it a try, but I don't ever remembering doing it myself.  I think Mitzi has the perfect stand that would attract many a customer though, and it looks like she is enjoying some refreshment herself!  

Hope you enjoy my card, these LMMS stamps and images are so much fun to play with, mix and match and create fun little scenes.  

Thanks for stopping by!! :D
