Christmas In July --- Again!

There were so many challenges this month for "Christmas in July" which was GREAT because I definitely need to get my Christmas cards done early.   2 more for my stash - yay! 

This cute sketch is from Operation Write Home Sketch #234.  It worked great for some fun holiday cards.   I may have to use this one again,  I love layers and of course the Red Sparkle Trim!

Viva! Viva!


Woohoo!   What GREAT Memories!  These are great photos from the 2013 CTMH Convention of and what a fun time we  had.   I'm hoping I get to go back next year.   I finished scrapping the event with the Viva paper they gave out at Convention and thanks to the FUN Challenge at H2H to "make it spicy".     I used Sketch #326 from Nuts About Sketches.

The sketch is Freshly Made Sketches #145.  I really like the woodgrain washi too.

Just Because

Hello Friday and Welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare #102.   We're having a good time playing with Sorbet, Indian Corn Blue and Sweet Leaf.   This one was challenging but fun to figure out. 

I was also inspired by the challenge over at "Just Us Girls" for this week's Trend week #249 to use woodgrain.  I liked the dimension it added to the background!   Try it!

Have a fun crafty weekend!

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.
