I just love this adorable kitten especially with watercoloring with distress ink. I used a punch for the middle strip piece and my Big Shot for the circle and scalloped circle. I love the Aspen Frost 6x6 pad...This was inspired by Kristina Werner.
I have several cards that I handmade for Christmas this year there will be several posts to play along with Simon Says ......Merry Christmas Blog Challenge (anything Christmassy).

I made this tag using part of the cardboard that came in my daughter's tights. It is a slightly larger tag and I am planning on making a pocket in the back of it to place our annual letter and family picture in it for my parents and then place it on their gift. They love animals so I thought this tag colored in with copic markers was perfect. I was inspired by Julia Stainton's tag with the snowflake background and Jennifer McGuire's tag with the animals ( okay she used a bird ) so I might be stretching a bit. But I have been so inspi

I guess I am working backwards but this card was also a lot of fun and I could get lots done at once...This is so what I need and this is the first year to actually make any of my cards. I always wonder why I bother but I still like to send them maybe because I so love to receive them!!!!!
Here is a card I made following an awesome tutorial by Jennifer McGuire in Online Classes Holiday Card Workshop (Well worth the money, the tips are just awesome)! THis card was a lot of fun and I now have some Thank you cards done ahead of time for Christmas presents...

The card I made starts with a white base. I had a scrap that I had cut a bunch of circles out of and decided to adhere that to the paper. I then stamped a few smaller circles with designs into one of the circles and two larger designs directly into two more of the circles. I then pop dotted up three more stamped pieces for a cute birthday card!

Well can you believe it two posts in one day... I am on a roll! This challenge is to use a trend. Well in the circles are all kinds of zigzags from zig zags and more background stamp plus I am starting a new trend with Drywall tape, yes that is what I said on the base of the card is drywall. Very inexpensive and resticks over and over again (great to put on titles too!)!
This Challenge #2 is being inspired with the picture below from pinterest to make a card!

Submitting a project for the challenge simon says... anything goes! I made this book from scratch for Lindsay for her quotes that she loves... I had fun making it and want to make myself one soon! I used some templates with spray mists on sticky back canvas. I made some pages using Photoshop elements 10. It was fun doing some digital art too!

I decided to enter a card as well to the chan=llenge using Hello my friend stamp by Megan Elizabeth. Also stamped with Chillax edger ink by the one and same Megan Elizabeth. Circles with Stickles and glossy Accents on them. Circle background embossed and the ribbon is from the mystery box we received as well!!
This scrapbook layout was a challenge for Cropped Event that is taking place this weekend... You needed to use teal and at least 7 circles. THe circles at the bottom right corner were also edged with Megan Elizabeths Chillax Ink Edger. They really pop off the page compared to the smaller circles that are right beneath the picture on the same area. Enjoy! It was fun to make and great to get some pictures on a page!

This is a page for the My Pink Stamper Blog Hop. I was supposed to make a fabric flower and use it. The First picture is how I used it on Julia's birthday page. It was fun using ric rac to twine together and then put on some tacky glue! The second picture is a close up of my fabric flower.
Enjoy your day!

This day is to scrapbook something that is more using the sense of hearing. I will be making a page about a jam session we had when Lindsay was home for Easter break, so that will be coming soon too. I am not a quick scrapbooker. I tend to play with something. I will do a little something go do something and then come back later and play with it some more...

Well so far 2 for 2 that is pretty good for me. Although I am sure I will get behind on weekends especially as busy as the next two weekends will be. Well Day 2 is a page with no photographs. I have been collecting artwork that Julia has made for me while I was trying to scrap and she just had to help! But we are making memories and they just grow up too fast! Thanks for looking and God bless!
I am taking a class this month called Load 512. We are challenged to think outside the box each day for May. So here is my Day 1 self portrait. I don't ever like my picture but with some of my darling kids I start to look better. I absolutely love Spring and the popping of new flowers and the warmer weather! It probably doesn't hurt that April is my birthday month ;D The first one is a collage and the second I added a few elements and a little bit of journaling. The last one is a traditional scrapbook page while the first two are digital. They are a bit blurry enlarging so but otherwise I think it is hard to see them. Enjoy God's blessings!

This was a fun super easy matchbook notepad I made for my daughter.
She can draw and we can add pictures and God willing it will make its way into a scrap album for when she was three. If any one is interested I can give directions for them. Let me know!
God's blessings on you!

Well I am actually doing it I am making my own blog! I have been starting to do challenges and different things that I finally thought that I need to jump off the band wagon and venture into the blogging world. I hope I have something to add... I guess time will tell.
