Cosmo Binge

I have been waiting for the Cosmo Cricket that I ordered to play with and it arrived yesterday afternoon. I was so excited that after J went to bed I made these:

This paper is from the CC Gretel collection:


And this combines old and new. I used Newer CC Cogsmo Paper with the Halfway Cafe die cut Swirl, Heart and Naked Chipboard Heart Outline. You can stamp that chipboard any color, if you don't like it just wipe it off and start again. This heart was every color of the rainbow including white and black at one point:


And this is using my favorite CC paper line, Get Happy:


Thanks for all the wonderful comments, I would like to answer a few questions, if you leave me a question I will answer it. I love questions! I have been a scrapper for 5 years, however, in 10/05 my husband was injured and nearly killed in Iraq. I didn't scrap for almost 2 years due to his rehab, I got pregnant, we moved 3 times, etc. So, I have only been scrapping again since Christmas of this year (6 months?). I almost have 100 layouts for J's book, not total. I have 2 albums I did before the accident. I say accident but it was an IED blast, clearly not accidental. I struggle with what happened, but that is for another day. Not a beautiful sunshiny day like today. Hope everyone who is traveling stays safe, have a great holiday. I'll be working on some more Halfway cafe to post tomorrow or Friday. See you then!

HUGS to you, and I do hope, also, that your DH is doing well at this time, as well.

Wow! Great layouts! Your talent is inspiring! Thank you to you and your husband for all you endure on our behalf. I know enough to know that this is not something that you just put behind you and voila, life is regular agai. I pray for you to have a peace about what happened and how it impacts your lives.

Danielle, these are just AMAZING! I love the Beach Baby layout. Wow, stunning!

I didn't realize that you had been on a scrapping "hiatus" recently. So had I. I just came back to the scrap world in Feb. I had a rough pregnancy and then at 4 1/2 months my baby underwent major cranial surgery. I didn't scrap for almost 2 years. Anyway, I don't know how your husband is now but I will keep him (and you) in my prayers.

Please thank you husband for his service-even to the point of an "accident". My family has greatly benefited from his bravery.
