More Scrappin'

What?!  Two in One Week ... YUP!  This is my 2nd Scrap layout for this week.  I did make a few of these pages to swap at Convention, woohoo!  This wasn't my favorite paper pack but it ended up working well with photos from my Mom's Retirement Party.   So happy the pages are in the book.  It was a special time since I could be there for my Mom. 

Supplies:  CTMH Avonlea, CTMH Ink Chocolate,  CTMH Stamps It's a Party, Sans Serif Capitals, CTMH Black & Gray Assortment Buttons, CTMH Silver Dot Ribbon,

Family Time ... It's All Good

Wow!  Actually got some Scrap Time this week ... so very happy!  These adorable picts are from a recent visit we had with family.   What a great, great time.  So glad we could catch up.  I'm always amused to watch the cousins interact.   They sure do love my youngest DS.   This layout is from the Current CTMH Ideabook.   It was very fun!   I made this page for layout swaps at Convention other than I changed up my 1st page slightly for one for myself.

I Am ...

So Happy!  It's time once again for our Color My Heart Color Dare #47 Challenge. 
This week our Challenge is to use HONEY . This color is definitely a great golden yellow color to create with and it worked perfectly with the daisy flower stamps.   It's been awhile since I had out that stamp set.   The Sketch is this week's Retro Sketches #66 (w/ a tilt, LOL).   All good!  

 

 

 

I hope you're feeling like celebrating Sunshine and "Honey" color and will come and play at CMH this week!

Yup ... Still Scrappin!

Whew!

I can't believe how long it's been since I've added a scrap page to my blog!  I definitely have still been scrappin'.  Perhaps not as much as I've been busy traveling and when home had some card projects but my albums are filling up nicely.   This is a scraplift page from sb.com.  My youngest DS and GF at Easter.   Aren't they a cute couple?  :)  

Supplies:   CTMH Chantilly Paper Pack,  CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, CTMH Chantilly Chipboard, CTMH Ric Rac Ribbon Rounds,  Big Brads

Wow, I'm Early ...

somewhat ...at least I have my Dad's day card ready in time to mail timely this year.  Thanks to the challenge over at Rose Blossom Garden to use page 75 in the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge.   My Dad always chuckles that I make his card.   He says they are just as lovely as when I was 4 or 5 and made cards for him, haha!   I'm sure those might have been a little more colorful,  I loved my purple crayon.

It's Gonna be a GREAT Day


Hello to a new week!  Welcome Monday.   This week over at ABC Challenge Blog we're enjoying making cards with Animals.  At first I was sure I didn't have any stamps with animals but ... wow, I guess I surprised myself because I sure did.  When I found this one, I couldn't resist.  I don't get it out too often but it's SO cute!  Of course, I think hedgehogs are only cute on cards, hunh?    I'm sure if you look you'll find you have several animal stamps as well so dig them out and come and join the fun!

The sketch is from this week's Viva La Verve Sketch over at SCS.

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.
