Where is Spring?

Welcome to our SOTM Watercolor Showcase Blog Hop!   If you're hopping along with us, you just came from Marie's Blog.   I have to admit, before today, my watercolors were still in the package, gasp!




But today I got them out to play!   How fun.  I used the Watercolor Paints and painted the tags.  I really liked how it came out.  I also watercolored the bird and added Shinhan markers for more intense colors to the outline.   This card sketch is from the PageMaps Sketch for sb.com. 

This  is my favorite one

Here's the Second one I completed with alternate colors.  I thought it might be fun to have a vote in the comments so please select your favorite.   The next stop in our Watercolor Hop is Wendy's Blog.     If you get lost along the way,  here is the Complete List for the hop.

Wow .... Spring into March

It's time for our March SOTM Blog Hop!   Who doesn't like Spring and celebrating time for birds, flowers and sunshine?!   If you're hopping along with us, you just came from Haley's Blog.




I had so much fun with this stamp set!   I love Spring and all the fun stamps we have to celebrate it's arrival.   Unfortunately I ran off for some scrapping and business travel and completely forgot to photo the adorable layout I created with this set.   The fun part is that we were doing a Regatta Workshop and with the leftovers,  I was able to use the MOJO Monday #437 Sketch.  Perfect timing as these are going out in the mail this week.
 



Thanks for hopping along.   Your next stop is Brenda' s Blog.  If you get lost along the way, here is a complete list for the Blog Hop.    Have Fun!

Share the Love

Woohoo!  Love is in the air ... well, sort of .... coming soon right?  Haha!   My hubby is frustrated with me because I worked late last night and it interrupted date night plans ... who knew?!   I plan to make it up to him next week for Valentines day and Surprise him with favorite dinner, pineapple upside-down cake and of course a card or 2 .   I always make lots of Valentines and pick one for him as I'm making them.   LOL!    Perfect Timing for our Share the Love Blog Hop!   (Complete List of Hoppers Here).  If you're hopping along our "Share the Love"  Blog Hop, you just came from Gina's Blog.  



I'm sure once you get a chance to see all the neat cards, pages and d├ęcor in our Hop that can be done with this stamp, you'll want to own the set also!    I made Valentines! 


This is inspired by this week's MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge #433.   My next card was from a Card Sketch posted on Scrapbook.com.   I thought it was perfect for the hearts I had already cut from another project on my desk

Cheers To Love

If you haven't had the chance, make sure to pull the papers out  to play along with some of the Charlotte Paper this week!  I used every scrap of the Workshop Your Way papers.  I finished up 6 scrap pages and 5 cards.   This one is for my DH.  Our Anniversary is in May and I figured this was the perfect card to celebrate with.  

If you're playing along with us at Color My Heart Color Dare #179,  it's time to use your Charlotte papers or the colors that go along with it.    Enjoy Your weekend!

Hello Friday

Woot!  Woot!  Yesterday was my Bday and the best part was I got to spend it with my Mom, Sister and Family!   Happy Birthday to me, it's always a treat to be with my loved ones. 


Welcome to Friday and another Fun edition of Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #177.   This week we're playing along with Crystal Blue, Peacock and Whisper.  What a great combination.  I was scrapping and knew just the page I wanted to do with these colors.   I love that the Paper Fundamentals Pack comes with some fun words and complements and I used my CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut the #1 and the Basketballs.  


I wanted to complete this page because it goes with the H2H "One" Challenge.  I hope you come and play along this week!   Let's see what you can do with these colors.

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!

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.
