Bounce House

Here is a new SVG I made for my son's bounce house pics.  Not very sophisticated, but it works.  If someone can help me figure out how to host it, I will post it for free to use.

I have not cut it yet, but I checked the outlines and it looks good to go, just need to figure out how to host the file..or whatever it is so people can download.

Here is the scooter I made for my son's page.  Once again, not pieced yet, but made.

New site- Shabby/cute paper piecings

I found this site http://www.preciouspiecings.com/   They have some cute paper cuttings.  (Although they are not as "professional" looking as LSHD or TBD, but some of them are really cute!  I bought a few today to go in my son's book and I will let you know how they turn out.  Here is a sample of what they offer:

Looks like you may need to add a lot of pen and chalk detail.  Also appears like there may be a lot more smaller paper piecings than I am used to..but if the end result is good... :)

Nicholas's Pages

Tonight I will post some pics of my son's scrapbook (it is adorable)!  I did our camping trip, fishing with papa, and used some pages I had premade for the Holidays.  I was scrapping like mad this weekend, and then the Superbowl hit and that meant no scrapping...only eating junk food.  Ugh, nothing like a full stomach the next morning to remind you of all the calories you consumed.

Tonight I am working on a summer pool theme and a puppy with kid theme.  Hope they turn out well.

Thinking about applying for the LSHD team.  Not sure if my work is good enough for it or if I want to dedicate myself to making 3 items a week, but I might give it a shot.  I just need to think on it for a while.  (This might actually make me finish my daughters scrapbook...lol!)

Got my paper Tuesday night.  I have two layouts almost done.  (A Brownie and a Junior Girl Scout page).  Just need to do the paper piecing, but it may have to wait a little while.  I need to finish up some pages for my son's book and I have a deadline fast approaching.  A little bummed as I was hoping to beat the ebay rush to this, but hey, life is life :)

Still Waiting on Paper

Trying to be patient, but I ordered Gril Scout paper a week ago and am still waiting on it.  I am trying to get it in time for TBD's release for the scout stuff..  ugh.  Last night the mail lady didn't deliver until 6:30PM! What the heck was up with that??  I think they know I am stalking my mailbox and am avoiding me at all costs. 

Tonight my goal is to work on inkscape and get some designs done for the girl scout page. (Maybe the Daisy petals, the Brownie Insignia, ect...).  That way I can have all those SVG's ready to cut when I get my paper.  In the mean time I am going to do a snow dance and hope I get at least a 2 hour delay tomorrow off work. (I need more sleep!)  Yes, I should sleep instead of scrapbooking, but who wants to do that?
