Make a Wish

Good Evening All!!
I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. My family and I had a great day very relaxing.
It has been well over a month since my last post :-(. I've been crafting, but just can't find the time to get projects posted. I'm hoping to find more time to participate in all the great challenges out there.
I ordered my first set of Peachy Keen Stamps (super excited); I've wanted some for a very long time. I love seeing all the super cute projects created with the stamps. This week over on the Peachy Keen Blog: Sketch Challenge 65 w/ a Twist: Paper Piecing. For this challenge no Peachy Keen Stamp required.
I created this card using my "I". I really like the Kate's Kitchen cartridge.

As always thanks for stoping by :-)

Wild Thing!!

Hello All!!!

The weekend is almost here and we have no major plans, I'm jumping around doing the happy dance right about now... :-). That means the kids and I can bake and craft all weekend. What better way to start our summer off, being today was the last day of school for the kids?

Well on to a project I created with a new cart I picked up a couple of weeks ago. Life's a Party, as I was flipping through the handbook I saw this cut and I knew it was perfect for the pictures we took at the zoo last summer. Lol (can you tell I used a new sticky sticky mat).

Happy Birthday

Hello All,

Don't you love finding old pictures on your computer that you have totally forgotten about? I found some pictures of my youngest daughter on her birthday. For my kids I always picked up a play cake just for them on their first birthday, Of course we all enjoyed eating the cake, but the birthday child gets first dib’s on it as you can see below.

This was such a fun LO for me, I can't believe how time flies.

Survival Kit

Hello All,

I hope everyone is having a blessed Sunday. I would like to apologize for the long absence from my blog. Everyday life seem to throw so many curve balls in one direction I figure it would be okay to let a week go by without crafting and blogging. Then before I know it one week turned into two weeks, two weeks turned into three weeks and so on. I looked at the calendar and a month had past, wow....

I'm so glad to be back crafting!!! I promised myself I would take at least one hour a day to work on a project or post a blog, so now on to crafting.

I made this survival kit for my DD's teacher. I had the idea in my head and had all intentions on having it done for Teacher Appreciation Week....well that week came and went and the idea was still in my head. This weekend I was able to complete it and it will go to school Monday morning with my DD.

Challenge: Fantabulous Cricut "Teacher Feature"

Good Evening Everyone,

This layout has been sitting on my scrap table for over two weeks, I finally was able to vision what I wanted to do and put it together in the layout.

So here's what I came up with using a flexible template.

This week has gone by so fast. The kids had so many activities going on that I could not find the time to complete one project, but I was able to design it on my Gypsy, I just love that little toy, lol.
