Altered Frame

It is a little 'altering 101' but I love the clean and simple look. This is a wood frame that I purchased at Hobby Lobby, I used Zip Dry glue to adhere CS to it. The Cardstock is from Nana's Stack by DCWV. Used some ribbon, inked up a chipboard letter, and used the cricut to make the other letters. Simple and fun...I just love it.

Monkeys! Oh My!

With a lil help from my Missy I got 100 Changito Monkeys colored, cut, and mounted on a square scallop to make a Christmas Tag. I used Bic Mark Its and brown ink around the edges.

This is another card I have done for the shows. I used an images given to me by my good friend Dee. This is from Stamping Bella ~ ChristmasTini. I just love the way this card sparkles...much better in person.

Halloween Time!

One of my most favorite holidays is Halloween! I love all the creatures and the feel of fall. Here are some of my projects that I have done so far.

Halloween Treat Bags for Charli Ann's Classmates.

The image is a Penny Black Stamp that I colored with my Bic Mark It Markers, attached to cardstock and attached to a ziplock bag of treats.

Trick or Treat Cheese Please!

This image is a digital image purchased from The Greeting Farm website. I just love her...she is so sweet. I colored this image with my Koh I Noor colored pencils and Mark It Markers. I stickled the dots around the image and placed on card using Debbie Mumm Cardstock.


The next 2 cards are from my newest favorite digi site... Fresh Brewed Designs. I used my Bics to color both cards and also used CS from the Debbie Mumm Pack.

Hula! It's Friday!

TGIF!! I am so glad that this week is over and the weekend is here. I am excited to see The Thunderbirds from the airshow and Armada Fair on Sunday! Here is the card I made last night for a Sketch Challenge on CafeMom. I used Hula Anya from my newest stamp addiction site - The Greeting Farm! I received this image from an image swap and used papers from the Citrus DCWV stack. I colored the image with my Bic's and skin Copic.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

I am so sorry I have been MIA. I have to admit I have a Facebook addiction that has taken over me...but mainly, I have been so busy and unorganized in life that I have not been able to update. I am going to make a good faith effort this week to update this and get this going.

I have big things in store for me. I am going to be the opposite of me and try to get ahead of the game instead of behind...

I hope everyone is doing well - I will catch up on everything soon :)

Bellarific Challenge

I am a huge fan of and her blog. I worked on her Bellarific Challenge this weekend and this is what I came up with. I used the Cuppycake with a HUGGABUGG on top stamp with the Billboardabella words for the sentiment. The papers were RAK'd to me along with the ribbon and baubles.

My Weekend Scrap Time

I spent the weekend making some cards for challenges and swaps. Here is what I got done.

Rock N Roll Monday

Today was Rock N Roll dress up day at school. I don't think Charli knows what Rock N Roll is but we did a pretty good job getting her dressed up. It was so much fun! Here is her pics!

Special Thanks!

Last week I was lucky enough to find this great listing on Craigslist for some free scrapbook stuff. The listing was right in my neighborhood so I figured if even it was just one thing that I could use it was worth it. Well, it was all wonderful and I will so be able to use it all - and it is even more perfect that I have my Scrapbook Weekend coming up! She made my day again when she sent me a note stating she had some paper if I wanted. This girl is my saving grace!! The papers were AMAZING. Anyway, I digress...I made her this journal book as a token of my thanks, I hope she likes it as it is all I can do for her right now!

Time is flying by...

I am unsure what happens to my days lately. The last 3 weeks we have been dealing with colds, sinus headaches, ear infections, and that nasty high fever virus that is going around. In the mist of all this my baby girl turned 6! I just can not believe how big she is. Charli Ann is the love of my life, I can't imagine my world without her in it and I am so glad she is mine! She is getting so smart and just so creative every day. Right now as I write this she and her dad are making ice cream with her ice cream maker that she got as a present.

We have been planning for what seems like a year for her birthday party. We decided to do a Carnival Theme for her party. Nick made an awesome Plinko game that got rave reviews! We also had Monster Basketball, Ring Toss, Bean Bag Toss, and a Duck Pond Game. All the games revolved around Charli turning 6 - so the kids had to score 6 points on the games to win a prize.

Then we had cake and ice cream and Charli got to open up all her presents. Her friends outdid themselves in this area - we are truly blessed! Here are some pictures of our day... sadly I have none of Nick dressed up as a clown...I am unsure how I missed getting that!!

Daddy Daughter Dance

So Daddy decided that since Charli Ann did so well this last marking period at school he is taking her out on a date to the Daddy-Daughter Dance put on by the High School Drama Club. I think they made a very adorable couple, I hope they have a great night!

Happy New Year!

I don't have any new pictures this go around...just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I am certainly looking forward to this new year. With the holidays finally behind us I can't wait to clean up and get back to scrapping. My mom and I have been trying to re- arrange the basement area to make it "liveable" for us. I want the kids to be able to play while I scrap...sounds simple, but it takes a lot of effort - especially with my boy! Anywho...I hope to start some Valentines Day projects here shortly. Will post as soon as I get something done!
