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 ...it'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.

I Scream, You Scream

We all Scream for Ice Cream!   Welcome to June SOTM, "Ice Cream Dreams".  It doesn't take too much imagination for me on that one,  I love ice cream!   This stamp set is so cute for some fun summer scrap pages or some fun cards!

I had the perfect summer time pictures of a family night stop at the ice cream store to scrap and these adorable stamps added the fun embellishments!   Vacation is such a great time of year.

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.

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.
