Your a Star

I got to play with my Cuttlebug. I discovered you can emboss chipboard!!! Thanks to Jenn M for letting me borrow her Swiss Dot Folder. I am on the hunt for my own at the moment.

Anyway, I made a card for Cuttlebug Be Inspired # 15 challenge.

I used CTMH Baby Pink and White Daisy. The chipboard stars are from American Crafts. The rest of the goodies are from my stash :) I also used heat embossing for the sentiment and stickles on the white stars.

Thanks for looking,

Stampede


This was a page kit put together by Becky Harding-Dixon. I love how the colors match the colors in my pictures. The kids had fun at this Boy Scout function. Archery. BB guns, rock walls and rope courses filled the days activities.

Thanks for looking,

Giraffe Altered Tiles




I am on a bit of a Giraffe kick at the moment. I got a Giraffe print purse for Christmas and I am loving it. So, it was no surprise when I bought a pack of Giraffe print napkins on Clearance at Target. I would use them for something...someday.

Well, low and behold I found these nifty tile sets on clearance at Big Lots. 4 tiles and the metal holder for 50 cents! They even have cork on the back. I snatched them up and said. "I will use those for something."

I got home and put the two clearance deals together!

I painted over the Christmas designs and then decoupaged the napkins on to the tiles. I think the creases would normally bother me, but since it is an animal print, I think it makes them look cool!

Thanks for looking,

My Treasure


It is hard to tell from this picture that I used the map paper from the CTMH Route 66 paper pack. Who knew I would use it on a pirate-y page?

We had Disneyland passes for almost a year before I bought them them ears. Don't you just love to "MEAN" pirate faces the kids make. Makes me want to pinch those pirate-y faces and smooch'em... ( I am sure that is not the reaction they were going for!)

I got all fancy and heat embossed the buckle and coins...

Thanks for looking,

Laugh Or Cry? page 1 and 2


When David took these pictures of K. before and after a "spa day" birthday party, I did not know what I should do: laugh or cry. Here is my little SIX year old all dolled up with curls and glitter and look at her poses... WHAT!!! She can not be looking at the camera like that...It is just not right. Stop it..stop trying to be such a big girl!

PS..I used my new Cuttlebg to emboss the Colonial White squares. This paper is from Close To My Heart is this the Exclusive Key To My Heart Paper from this months special... PERFECT match to K's outfit.
