Disclaimer ahead....

So, my disclaimer is that I suck at making cards. There, we got that out of the way :-) Of course, I don't normally make cards, so I guess i'm not helping my card making ability any because of that (since we all know the lovely 'practice makes perfect' adage), but I just don't have the same passion for them that I do layouts. I love looking at them, though. And I greatly admire those who are talented card makers (and many of my friends fall in that category and constantly blow me away with their abilities!!), but I guess i'm just a layout kind of girl.

Anyway, why am I rambling on about cards? Because I made one the other day. One of my Luxe requirements this month was to make a card, so I embraced it. Anyway, all this talk is basically to convince you not to hold my card making skills (or lack thereof) against me, lol.

I hope i'm not boring you to death with all my photos lately, but boy, I think this month is the least i've scrapped in a long time (and I just have to share something on here to keep you all interested, right?! ;-))! I do have a layout to share on Saturday for CMK's awesome Scrap Pink crop, and I did work on a layout tonight that I should be able to finish tomorrow. And, I just can't resist sharing these photos. My family is addicted to the Noggin show "Yo Gabba Gabba" (I'm not sure who likes it more - Tony or the kids!), and last night we had a major rockin' out jam fest while watching the musical performances on the show. The kids picked up our Playstation Rock Band instruments and just went to town. It was the cutest thing EVER. Anyway, I'm outta here as it's after 1am, and I need to get to bed! Happy Fall everyone!

Okay, so you do NOT suck at making cards - this is very cute!!!! I love it! And, by the way, I am a layot gal too, but now that I am a demo, making cards is a big part of it, so I had to learn (just started a year ago) but I too am more comfy with my layouts!!! Your pictures are totally adorable and I cannot wait to see them scrapped - look how cute your kiddos are! Have a great weekend, my friend!

I'm sure you totally underestimate your cardmaking abilities , dearie ! Great card here for sure !!!

& adorbable rawking pics of the gang !!!

I totally hear you there on being a layout kinda girl - totally understand where you're coming from ! lol ! believe or not !

As for someone like me - i started off on the cardmaking / papercrafting route b4 scrapbooking the way I do now -however , these past 3-4 wks being in Chipboard school & at the Bad Girls Design Academy - also time being a factor - I've been mainly focussing on making layouts ! the scale of layout projects & the satisfaction of making them is just different from other projects for sure ! So I do understand more now when scrappers just can't stop scrappin' ! lol ! cos I am catching a little of that bug for now !

LOVE the photos!! How cute the kiddos are. I just love family times like that.
And you did a great job on your card! It looks adorable!
I'm so sorry I'm going to miss all the fun at CMK today. I'm off to a local ScrapPink crop we're holding for our little kit club. Hope you all have a great time!
