Scoot! (Jacob @ 12 months)

Jakey loves to push things, ride on things, and to be outside! 
I found this little scooter at a yard sale for just five bucks - score!
I saw this awesome sketch at Get Picky and had to play along!

My layout:
All of the paper and elements are from the Crate Paper "Zoom" line. The base paper was a little loud so I lightly brushed it with parchment colored acrylic paint by Folk Art. Of course I had to use lots of Tim Holtz distress inks in "aged mahogany" and "mustard seed". The letters are American Crafts Thickers "Jewelry box".

I entered this layout at Scrap That Baby for Prompt #29 - Baby's day out.

Some close-ups:

Cameo Mother's Day cards

With Jacob's first birthday party last weekend, we celebrated Mother's Day today - good thing because that gave me time to make these super cute cards! 
Here is how I made the cameo's:
I took profile pictures of the kids and changed them to black and white, then I printed them on regular white paper (next time I will use cardstock), then I cut them out, and then I painted them black. 
I got the idea for the card mounts from Gina at StampTV. (Gina is seriously talented and has awesome tutorials and beautiful stamps - check her out!) The red background paper on Jacob's is from Cosmo Cricket and the green background paper on Quinn's is from Echo Park. If you love cameo's/silhouettes, pop over to the Practical Scrapper's blog on Tuesday for more inspiration - or make one of your own and e-mail it to Christine for possible publication!
So - here are the pictures I used:

And here are the cards:
