Thinking of Mom

"April Showers bring May Flowers" and these flowers are for my Mom.  I always make 2 or 3 different cards for Mothers Day trying to find the "perfect" card for her, LOL.  I end up sending all of them to her which she loves.  She tells me that all of them are her favorite?  Oh Mom ...

Happy Friday!  This week we're celebrating Color My Heart Color Dare #142.  these are the fun colors of the paper pack Blossom.  I hope you get to come and play along!  This sketch is MOJO Monday #390.

CTMH Supplies:  Paper Blossom, Stamps B1473 Flowers for Mom, Ink Glacier, Smoothie, Coral Reef Sequins.

We're Celebrating ... AGAIN


with a Seasonal Expressions #2 ... woohoo! 

Only this time it's the Summer version of the Seasonal Expressions and that's even better!  I hope you've had the chance to check it out because there are lots of fun items in the book and you won't want to miss .... I know I'm anxious for my April order to get here.

If you're hopping along with us, you've come from Jennifer's Blog.  I'm glad you're here.  My boys are grown but yesterday at Easter,  I realized that even though they're adults, it's still LOTS of FUN to celebrate together.   I captured some cute photos of the sweet stuff I picked up for my oldest DS and I couldn't wait to scrap it...of course, I didn't have the pictures printed but I saw this cute sketch on scrapbook.com "PageMaps" challenge and it fit perfectly.    Add the beautiful Blossoms Paper, Stickease and Coral Reef Sequins and my page is ready and waiting for photos. 


Now HOP on over to check out Haley's Blog and check out the wonderful inspiration she has for us!

Together

Hello Friday!  It's time once again for another fun Challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare #136.  This week we're playing along with Pixie, Colonial White, Slate and Silver! 

I have a month to come up with an Anniversary gift for my DH.  It will be 27 years together, whew!   He's always, always a great gift giver, creative and sweet.  I on the other hand, well, struggle....LOL.  As I was thinking about it today, these fun stamps came to mind and since this was on the only pixie pink I had... it worked for the card. 

Check out the fun peek at the new Bubbly Enamel Shapes that are in the CTMH Expressions II Idea book just launched.  Lots of cute colors and shapes, be sure to check it out.  My card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #178.

Living, Loving, Laughing 4 Life

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

The View from My Window
Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
