Framed! for August

Welcome to August SOTM!   I hope you're having a FUN Summer!   If you're hopping along with us, You're coming from PeachyLamb Blog. 

I'm very much enjoying the Summer.  I finished my BA in Transportation so classes are done! It feels good as I work full time (with travel) so it feels great to have all the classes completed.  Now, more stamping and scrapping time again!  AWESOME!    This month we're playing with the new SOTM for August 2015 - Framed.   Lots of fun sentiments on this one,  this card for a friend of mine.

I've been also wanting to ink up the Brushstrokes set so this worked perfectly.   Now hop on over to Jen Rubio's Blog and check out what she has created for us to enjoy!

If you are hopping along with us, you  just came from Jen's Blog.   I enjoyed playing along with one of my favorites from the Hostess Special - Happy Hexagons!  I'm usually late getting to the party and this one was no different,  I know Hexagons were trendy last year but I love this set!  Can't wait to use some of these cute stamps for some scrappin' but tonight, it made for a really cute card.

I also wanted to get out the Washi Tape and use some of the colors that will soon be retiring.  What a great way to get excited about new products coming soon .... I found this cute card idea on pinterest HERE, Dawn's site.  It worked perfectly for the stamp set and washi tape crafting time!   I hope you enjoy the hop.

Oh Yeah ... Wonderful!

I LOVE Summer!  I grew up in the Midwest so you have to appreciate sunshine when it's here!  This year is no different.  As I get older, snow and winter always seems worse!   I hope you are enjoying sunshine where you are! 

Welcome to your July SOTM Blog Hop - Life is Wonderful!   If you are hopping along with us, you just came from Michelle's Blog.  What a fun stamp set for July and another great SOTM.   In March we celebrated some "21" year old Birthday's and I thought this stamp set was perfect for scrapping these pictures.  I saw the fun page in the Idea Book and decided it would be just right for my page

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to HOP over to Darlys' Blog and check out what she has created with these fun stamps!

...on you!  Welcome to the SOTM Blog Hop Special highlighting "My Crush" books. 

Not too long ago we went to a CTMH Event and they showed all of us the fun stuff we could do with the "My Crush" books's not all about just mini-albums!    They had fun ideas at the event on taking the "My Crush" book apart and using it for great backgrounds for scrap pages or cards! I used that idea and really like how the page came together.  These are actually my pictures as my team stayed in Marblehead for the evening and I had time for a walk along the lakeshore prior to the event.   GREAT FUN!

** For the month of June, when you purchase a "My Crush" Album from your CTMH Consultant, you will receive a FREE coordinating stamp set.  Check it out HERE.

One of the "My Crush" Albums included in the Special - Bluebird.  With this album, I started a "Book of Me" highlighting the special moments of each month.

If you're hopping along with us,  you just came from Chris' Blog.  You'll want to keep hopping along to see all the fun ideas!   Your next stop on the hop is at Lisa's Blog.  *If you get lost, here is the complete list, Melinda's Blog

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.

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

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.
