Last Day for the SSS Blog hop!




LAST Day!


We had terrible thunderstorms yesterday, last night through this morning and we just got power back so sorry I am a few minutes late today.

 What a crazy night with these storms! AND we slept in too long this morning b/c no alarm ...ooops!

So here is my layout. This MME patterned paper is perfect for the hexagon stamps. I think these are going to be the hot ticket! Hexagon stamps?!?!??!!????

This layout has a great story behind it so I will summarize the journaling for you. We get together with my mom's side of the family every December for Christmas. While we were together we picked a date for my Nana's 90th Birthday party this past May. Well, I get an email from my Aunt in March or so and she tells us we added wrong that Nana is only 89! hahaha...Well...we had the party anyway and it's a good thing b/c she  is in stage 4 battling lung cancer. She had such a good time and here is a layout with all the crazy cousins singing happy birthday to her.


I love love to stamp on patterned paper so I used one as an accent here. I also cut the hexagon with my exacto knife and layered strips of Core'dinations underneath it.


And here are some more of the stamps. I layered one with a sticker (run your sticker through you embossing machines for added texture. Just put them on wax paper)
