Look at Ham! And other news...



This is Ham, our new Hamster. Isn't she too cute??? I am so in love. Her fur is the softest, and I love to snuggle with her in the rare times when she'll actually sit still.
In other news, DH is back and starting a local job on Monday. We are so happy. We hate hate hated having him drive over-the-road. Thank you Jesus!!!
I've been trying to not spend any money on scrapbooking so I've been getting really artsy. I have also been "borrowing" ideas from around the web and blogs, etc. Trying to make my own version of some of the stuff I've seen lately. Like these newspaper flowers...
I may have scraplifted a certain popular brand here for my very own homemade pp and chipboard letters, can anyone guess the brand and the line??? I'm going to make a birthday present for my nephew out of it.
I saw white painted-looking chipboard on someone's blog and decided to paint some ugly old chipboard that I was holding on to white or black and then stamp on it. I love how it turned out.
And last but not least, I stamped on vellum and then cut it out by hand. I thought it turned out nice.
