|this is a fun card that i made for a friend.
i’ve been loving these layered circle flowers….i have seen them on MANY layouts and cards….so i made a few for the card.
the paper is new with adorable little owls on it.
i (heart) owls!
i recently bought some flair pins on etsy and one of the owls matched the paper perfectly, so i just HAD to use it!!!!
and of course, THICKERS were a MUST!!!!! (love thickers!!!!!)
|this is cali, (short for california). isn’t she cute???
she is an adorable new puppy that my nephew just got.
this is a picture of us enjoying the Easter get-together.
hope you are enjoying the start of a new week.
don’t forget, tomorrow is the 15th….even if tomorrow is tax day, it also means that there is a new release party over at papertreyink.com!

|sorry, i’ve been missing in action.
i’ve been feeling kind of blah & un-inspired….along with the joy of each holiday, comes the stress of family issues….i won’t go on & on about that stuff, i’m sure most families have problems of their own….it’s just sad when you can see how sin can destroy a family….
ok…enough about that!
on to more interesting things!!! scrapbooking!!!
this is a quick layout that i’ve been wanting to do for a while. it’s about the last year and my dedication to not just lose weight, but to get healthy & fit.
the journaling reads:
“more than the numbers on a scale
more than the number on the clothing
more than the numbers on the calendar
it’s more about being fit and healthy to be the woman that God made me”
of course i used some of my favorite thicker stickers….and the jenni bowlin calendar….one of my new calendar girl pins (flair) and some free MM mailbox numbers…..
if you need some scrappy inspiration, i suggest checking out SIStv.com (scrapinstyle) it’s sooooo addicting!!!! there are sooooo many talented scrappers. lots of ideas and inspiration!
enjoy your spring break! take time to relax & be crafty!!
(and thanks, stef, for asking where i’ve been!!!! it’s nice to be missed from my little bloggy world! lol!)
|i have seen cards like this before and just loved the look of it.
i’ve been wanting to sit down & make some.
finally had a chance to make one….can’t wait to make more!!!
|used the new songbird chipboard set by maya road….
made a BIRDAY card for my sister in law.
i had lots of fun making it!!!
thanks for looking!!!
|just 2 cards that i made.
the first one is fabulous–BECAUSE, you can use scraps!!!!! just bits & pieces of coordinating patterened paper!!!
great way to use up small scraps!
|the picture above, i wanted a lot of space to write a note, so i opted for a small message in the corner.
thanks for looking!!!!
|this is a layout that i did for the challenge over on OLW. the word this week is: REAL.
the journaling reads: “sometimes being a REAL stay @ home mom is less about eating bon bons and more about trips to the doctor’s office & smiling though you’re exhausted…this is REAL LIFE!!!”
i’ve been missing in action the last few days because nick’s been really sick.
fever around 103′, breathing treatments around the clock, aches, pains, vomitting, sore throat…..you name it, he has it.
finally did get an apt. at the doctor, (picture above)…the doctor prescribed an antibiotic and said if things don’t improve, he will need chest x-rays on monday to make sure it’s not pneumonia. finally his fever broke last night….thank you God….he’s showing some improvement….so i grabbed a few minutes for myself and scrapped this.
you can also see it here.
…off to spinning class!….
|this is a layout that i created on scrapblog.com
i haven’t played around on their site in a while. i forgot how much fun it is!!
it’s the only time that i mess around with any form of digital scrapbooking.
the journaling reads:
“Temperatures in the 60’s today. It was the first time that I finally feel ready for Spring. Enough of Winter. I opened teh back door and Chewy assumed his normal position…looking out back and keeping his eye on any neighborhood activity.”
if you’ve never tried scrapblog, give it a try!!
|my mom has a yellow VW, so when i saw this new paper, by paperloft, i new that she would love it!
i used the paper and coordinating papers from the same ‘slugbug’ line to cover the gift box, inside and out.
then placed her wrapped bday gifts in matching tissue & ribbon.
i even made a notebook for her to keep in her car…and a bookmark…(she loves to read)
for better instructions on how to cover a white gift box, you can refer to another post, from a month or so ago.
that’s all for today! hope your week is going well!
|ok. so here are both of the finished magnets.
this project kind of turned out different than how it started.
i knew the basic color theme i was going for.
but the bird-theme just kind of happened. all of the tiny hand-cut birds are from my grandmother’s crafting stash. i guess the project just kind of followed that direction…thinking of my grandma while i worked on it.
|below is the finished project!
once an old-used Christmas cookie tray.
now a magnet board!!
what have you altered lately?
|ok. so, i cleaned out my pantry a month or so ago…and had an idea to alter this cookie tray.
just using stash i already had on hand, it was rather easy.
here are some instructions, (or at least, what worked for me):
|ok. so that takes us mainly through the process.
unfortunately, i just deleted all of my pix from my camera before they were transferred to my laptop.
and, i need to leave shortly, for a girls’ night out….
so, i will have to retake the final pictures of my tray and post the 2nd half tomorrow!
