Rained Out

We might have been rained out for our Father's Day festivities but rain wouldn't hurt my feelings because right now I've been busy SCRAPPING! This cute layout has been in my file to use for awhile, it's from H2H. We had plans for a picnic but because of rain we stayed home. My DH still had a good time though as I made him dinner and he tinkered with his hot rods all afternoon, something he doesn't get to do often. Of course, for this page I had a great time trying some new features on my CTMH Cricut Cartridge Art Philosophy. I haven't taken it out of my machine since I got it! Way too fun! Supplies: All CTMH - Paper Felicity, Chipboard Letters, Flip Flaps, Cocoa and Desert Sand Ink

Bless This Nest

Well, this weekend I was busy packing up my son to move back to college. He's moving in an apartment off campus this year so it's lots more furniture and household items that have to go. When I saw these stamps, I new this was perfect for this weekend as all I could think of was that he's going to need lots of prayer and a little luck. It especially made me nervous when he told me the guys expected him to cook for them as none of the rest can cook. Seriously?! My son can't either so that out to be interesting. The sketch is from this week's MOJO MONDAY #204. The paper is retired CTMH Elegant Bouquet. Just using up scraps I have left. Enjoy! Supplies: All CTMH - Paper Elegant Bouquet, CS Cocoa, Sweet Leaf, Ink Cocoa, Sweet Leaf, Stamps Bless This Nest, Opaques Pearl, Colonial White Ribbon, Assrtd Buttons Green

Dear Mom

I love this layout! These beautiful roses are from my DS. I also just discovered that Sam's has new size print of 6x8 for same price as 5x7. I think that size looks nice when it's a single picture. The paper is retired CTMH Elegant Bouquet and the Sketch is for this August Sketch for Friends That Scrap Group. Of course I'm still playing with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. Aren't those butterflies awesome?! It's also my sample for VSBN (Virtual Scrapbooking Nights) Mini Event on SCS (Splitcoast Stampers) next weekend, August 20 & 21. I'm hosting the 8pm Challenge on Saturday. Come and Play! Supplies: CTMH Paper Elegant Bouquet (retired), CS Cranberry, Black, CTMH Cricut Cartridge Art Philosophy, CTMH Mini Sparkles, Misc Ribbon

Sharing From the Heart

It's that time for our CTMH "Sharing From the Heart" Blog Hop again and we're really enjoying this month as we all have new goodies from the 2011 Fall/Winter Catalog. Woohoo! If you're following the Blog Hop, you just arrived from Lori's Blog. I actually didn't know what goodies to play with first. Just recently, my family had a GREAT time having a Family Reunion. I found the new paper pack - Typeset would work for this layout. Very difficult due to all of the colors and "busy" photos. I've also been playing non-stop with Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge so of course I cut all of the circles with the cartridge. The dimensional circles are from the new Milepost Shapes. The sketch is from Nuts About Sketches #172.

I hope you've enjoyed this stop on our Blog Hop! Your next stop this month is at Kristine's Blog.

Supplies: All CTMH - Paper Typeset, Ink Juniper, Stamps Classmate Alpha, Vintage Type, Cocoa Organdy Ribbon, Milepost Shapes, Opaques Brown

Thanks! You're Awesome

It feels good to be back to crafting. It's been a long month of recovery from surgery and not feeling well! Woohoo! I needed a card for my Aunt who so graciously hosted the Family ReUnion that was my idea. She's an excellent hostess and we had a wonderful time. The card sketch is MOJO Monday 202# and the card supplies are from the new CTMH Paper Pack WOTG (Workshop On The Go) - Roxie! It came with some GREAT Bling! Of course I also used the new CTMH Cricut Cart Art Philosophy. If you have a Cricut, you will find this cartridge a must have as it cut all the banners, both the scallop circle and the standard circle. It's SO versatile! I had 3 of these cards made in less than 35 minutes! Supplies: CTMH Paper Roxie, CTMH Ink Sunset, CTMH Stamps Frames, Tags & Borders, CTMH A little Thanks, CTMH Black Grosgrain, CTMH Bitty Sparkles, CB Folder Dots
