Holidays Paper Bag Album

Here is a quick slide show of the Paper Bag Album I made for Mother in law. You can watch the full video here on my youtube channel. I love the way this turned out and I want to make more. I used an 8 1/2 x 11 paper pad called Four Seasons from Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby. The pull tabs are crochet flowers I made to match each page and I hot glued a rhinestone in the center of each one. The words and embellishments were all cut out on my cricut using my gypsy :0) Hope everyone is having a great start to their week!

Blog Awards!!!!

Okay, so I am a little late at posting these awards due to not knowing how to accept them. Thanks to Becky and Tracy for letting me know! This first one is from Becky. Thank you very much!!!

The next two are the same and they are from Tracy and Pea. Thank you girls so very much for thinking of me!!!

Now I guess I am suppose to be to tell you all eight things about myself so here goes...

1 I have been crafting since I was a little girl watching my mom. Took up actual scrapbooking thirteen years ago.
2 I am a little Obsessive Compulsive, well maybe a lot! Lol!
3 I love my children and my family more than anything in the world :0)
4 Red Vines are my sin and they will get the best of me someday!
5 I believe GOD works wonders and I will always count on Him to pull me through :0)
6 I have a hard time sharing some of my creations due to thinking that everyone else is a whole better, I'm working on this one :0)
7 My brain doesn't seem to stop running sometimes and I can't keep up with it! Too many ideas, too little time!
8 I absolutely want to be crafting continuously!

Well, I know there is a ton more I could write so in time you will all know more. This was the best I could come up with for now. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I have a four day with my boys so I can't say that I will get much done until they go back to school next Wednesday, we will see!

Caleb's Paper Dolls...

Caleb wanted to make some Paper Dolls after seeing the little Police Man I did on Mike's card. He chose these three for now. A Fire Fighter, Police Man and Construction Worker. I'm sure he will be making more as these are my favorite to do also. Aren't they just too cute?

Birthday card...

Here is a birthday card I made for Mother in law's fiance Mike. He used to be a Police Officer so I thought this would be cute. Hope everyone has had a great weekend!

Valentine card for my Hubby :0)

 Very non traditional Valentine colors but I love the way this turned out. I just couldn't do pink and flowers for my guy. I inked around everything on this one including the monkey :0)
Here is the inside, pretty simple. Hope everyone is enjoying their day!

Flowers and Day at home from school...

So school was canceled today due to weather conditions. Our high reached 0 today so can you all say, brrrrrrr! I get cold very easy so I hate this kind of weather. With the boys home all day we needed to find some entertainment, mainly for Caleb :0) After watching a video on youtube from Kelly at walkelmol here. She put up a tutorial on making these flowers out of newspaper or coffee filters. I don't get the paper and I am going to try the coffee filters very soon. Watch her video, very easy and cool flower tutorial. In fact. they are so easy that Caleb was doing them along with me. Here are his flowers, beautiful for a 6 year old little boy if you ask me.

He did these all by himself even inking the edges. After a while he even poked the holes to put the brads through on his own also. He's getting good!

Now here are mine. I did one using two different colors and layered them but I'm not sure if you can see it that well in the picture. These are so much fun and so super easy!

Go check out Kelly's video! If you don't want to take the time to make these she also sells them. She has details in her video. Hope every one is staying warm out there!
