It's Fundamental

Paper Fundamentals that is!   Welcome to our SOTM *Focus* Blog Hop for November.  This month we're featuring Paper Fundamentals ... my absolute FAVE papers to use right now.  These designs are SO versatile.   If you haven't played with a pack yet ... don't wait!  The variety of colors and designs plus the Enchanted Pack that goes with this are awesome

I found this SUPER cute page idea on Pinterest!  Unfortunately I didn't get the pictures printed yet but I know just the ones I want for these colors and this layout ... so excited!

If you're hopping along with us,  you just came to my blog from Jacquelin's Blog.  Next stop on the Blog Hop is Priscilla's Blog and if you got "lost" along the way,  Melinda has the full list.

Celebrating A New Year

Woohoo!  It's time to rock around the clock with a New Year Celebration during our SOTM Blog Hop.  If you're joining us on our HOP, you just came from Jacquelin's Blog -- very fun!   I think these adorable new year celebration stamps will be great for anyone's collection.  I had a great time playing with these and I see some FUN New Year's Pages in my future using these. 

The Sketch I used is MOJO Monday #420. 

There's lots more to see with our November SOTM Hop and your next stop is Jean's Blog

Oh Dear

it's coming ... cold weather .... it's coming, ugh.   Today my card is for the first "Hope You Can Cling" Challenge at SCS .  The challenge is to make a card showcasing your least favorite weather , for me it's cold and snow I don't like.  Ugh.   Maybe someday I'll live further south and will just see pictures of the white stuff,  haha!   For now though, shopping for new boots.

I used the sketch over at Sketch Frenzy Friday 100215.   Enjoy!

Celebrate Home

I'm so happy to be home this week ... no travel.  I'll be back out next week but these last 2 weeks have been a blessing to enjoy the comforts of home ... aahhh!   This is inspired by this week's Retro Sketches #184.   I loved these images from my new CTMH Cricut Cartridge Artistry.

Oh yeah, this week at work we're going for a week of .... Positivity!  No Negative comments (or thinking) allowed, LOL!   The whole premise is that we control our own emotions and attitudes.  It will be tough because it's easy to get swallowed in frustration but will be good to work at staying optimistic!  

I'm grateful they care!   This inspired my card for today.  I used the colors for the October Card Challenge Color Category and Tuesday Morning Sketches #320.

Hello Fall

Whew, Fall blew into Ohio this weekend and it has really brought cooler temps but some lovely color leaves.  I was inspired by the pretty colors swirling around the yard. 

I used CAS(E) Sketch #143.  Fun, fun!

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.
