Happy Tuesday everyone,
It's a beautiful day outside and a nice change from the weekend weather when the sky dropped quite a bit of rain. At least the plants and grass are happy to get watered so I shouldn't complain! So are you ready for another Midnight Madness sketch? I can't believe we are already on sketch number 50! Wow, I guess time really does pass by quickly when you are having fun!!!

"My obsession with cardmaking began innocently enough about 3 1/2 years ago when my dear husband suggested I find a hobby; little did he know how this 'hobby' would grow! I'm blessed to have a wonderful family -- including three beautiful daughters -- who are (usually) tolerant of the space and time my hobby occupies. I'm very excited to work with these amazingly talented ladies on the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge Design Team because I have admired their fabulous creations since the very beginning post. My own creations tend towards a more Clean and Simple style, so it won't be difficult to spot my cards for the next couple of months!" Jessica                         Gunn Thelin Knutsen
"I started making cards about 9 months ago, so I am still thinking of myself as a newbie in this card making and blogging world. I love to try out new techniques and look for new ways to use my stamps and embellishments. I live in Kristiansand, Norway together with Marcus, his two kids, Helene and Sebastian, and our three cats. I have a bachelor degree in literature and work part time at a library. I am very excited about this DT membership and am looking forward to seeing what you all will make during this time. I know you will give me a lot of inspiration, and I hope that I can give you some too." Gunn

Ok, now onto my scrapbook page. I have many photo albums of my son which I decorate with cute things but I don't have an actual scrapbook, so I decided to make one as he is graduating from Kindergarten next month. I will make a few pages from birth to his present age and then complete at least a page to add to it over the next few years.
The photo I used on this one is him in his little baby seat with two of his favorite soft toys, his blue bear and "wallygator" that came all the way from his aunty in England.
The backgroun dp is from Deja Views the Sharon Ann Collection called Baby Boy
The bugs and flowers are from Die-Cut Shapes called Snuggle Bugs
The bear and moon buttons are from Jo-ann Fabrics
safety pin was from Party City
Hand, foot and romper buttons from Michael's
That's it for me for now, but please take some time to visit my DT sisters and show them some love!
