It's been so long...

since I made a layout!!
And OMG did it feel good!!
My poor scrapbooks have been so neglected...but hopefully that will change!! I made these two layouts for a contest that I've entered!! I'm really excited about it and think it would be a fun way to get my mojo flowin' and get those empty scrapbook pages filled up!! And those who know me....I can never turn down a challenge!!

Hey Joan...recognize that big flower?? I've been saving it for the "perfect" layout!! Thanks girl!!

4 hours...14 mintues...and some seconds

till my husband comes home and realizes that I've been "crafting" instead of cleaning and doing the laundry!!
Hey, I can't help it!! When I get inspired I try to write down my thoughts, but my scrapping supplies was already out, so why not just make it instead!! lol
4 hours, 14 minutes and some seconds should be plenty of time to get the house tidied up, right?? Maybe I should put away my supplies first before I get into more trouble!!

Anyways, this is one of the things I created while "inspired"!!
The ribbon was my inspiration for this that's where I started!!
Here's what I came up with for the sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You:

Oh, and here is the craft apron I promised to show you all!!
I made this was a rather boring day!! Yucky rainy and nothing to do!! The boys were napping and hubby was watching a rather gruesome movie so I decided to treat myself with a trip to the craft store!! Okay....I admit it, that was a lie!! hehe My hubby was getting annoyed by me "moping" around the tv and told me to go...he even handed me some money!! Hey, sometimes good things come from
I've been wanting to make myself one of these aprons for sometime now, but just never found the "perfect" fabric. That was until yesterday!! I LOVE the bright colors....and of course the gigantic flower!!

And yes Ginger...I will be wearing this when I teach the class!!! ;)


This week at Card-a-licious the challenge is to use a circle, star and some sort of stitching!!

For some reason I always seem to have a hard time working with stars...and I have no clue why!! So after re-sizing my star a thousand times (okay...maybe it was just a couple times) I finally decided to put a little one on the card!! I absolutely LOVE this new monster paper by Daisy's so darn cute!! And me, a mother of two boys, I HAD to have it!!

Anyways, back to my card!! Here is what I came up with for this weeks challenge!!
The inside of the card has "Birthday"!!

Thanks for looking!!
Oh, and make sure you visit back later!!
I'll be posting a craft apron I made yesterday!!
Wait till you see the gigantic flower on it...what can I say, I'm obsessed with flowers!!! hehe

Scrappin' with the boys...

So this weeks challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You also involved your kiddos!! They have the opportunity to make a card also!!

So this afternoon, after school...we got out all of my scrappy supplies out and all three of us got to work!! I have no clue why they didn't want to put a "sentiment" on their cards...but this is what they came up with!! I did not help them out with anything except for the bow...that was it!! They even went along with the sketch!! I am really proud of them both...they did a fabulous job!!

Coaster Card

So, like I said in my last post...I've had these coasters for awhile now!! I was going to make a mini album with them but realized that they were not polka-dots on the underside!! So...after making a tag, I was instantly inspired to make a card also!! I really loved the way the colors turned out!!

Thanks for looking!

Gettin' thrifty...

I really love how this card turned out!!
There are lots of "scraps" on this card....
the corrugated paper was from an unused box,
the green ribbon was a tiny little 4 inch scrap
that I kept...why? I'm not really sure, but it
And of course the stick I found in my scrappy room
from a project I did WAY back in October...what can
I say?? I'm a collecter!!
Oh, and my favorite....the little black ruler sticker
is actually not "really" a sticker!! It was on the
edge of my letter sticker I cut it
out and used it!!

**I've had a couple questions about how I get my
corrugated paper so perfect....."actually" if you look
at it really closely, it's NOT perfect!! When you peel
off the top layer of a box one side will come off a little
easier then the you might just have to test
it out!! If it's being really really stubborn I will use
my Cricut spatula to help peel it off!! But I personally
like to leave little "scragglys" looks really fun
after painted or inked!! I'll be posting a mini-album that
I created using a "Top Ramen" box as the be on
the look out!!

A Couple Challenges

I have been really busy creating today!!
Lots of fun things to share thoughout the rest of the keep an eye out!!

The first one is using the sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!! I think I've found my newest "favorite"....buttons and pins!! I'm sure I'll regret using my sewing pins, but my mojo was flowin' and I wasn't about to "interupt" it!! lol
I bought my son a new booster seat yesterday so I thought I would make good use out of the left-over box!! I really love working with corrugated many possibilities and it's "green"!!
Anyways, here's what I came up with using the sketch!!

And for this second card...I made for a challenge on Melissa's blog!!

Card-a-licious 16

WOw...this weeks challenge was really really hard!! I normally don't scrap red, unless it happens to be somewhere on the paper!! So when I started looking for something red.....I couldn't find ANYTHING except those buttons and a flower (which could honestly pass for a dark pink...shhhhh)!!

The challenge was to use red, black, bling and sticker letters, so here is what I came up with!! I'm totally loving the lace ribbon...I'll have to pick up more of that!!
