Goofin' Around!

Hi all! Well...it's the middle of the week already and I have gotten a lot of creative time in so far. The boys are cooperating nicely :0) Here is a birthday card I did today. Gotta love Goofy! I made this in an easel style using some scraps of paper I had on hand and used my Mickey and Friends cartridge. The stamp is by Heidi Grace. Enjoy!

Vintage made

Hello everyone! I hope this week is going great for all of you :0) I decided to try my hand at making some vintage looking embellishments. I don't do vintage stuff so this is as good as it gets for me so I thought I would share what I did. Thanks for checking it out!

 Caleb has a tutorial on my YT channel here to make these flowers :0)



 These were cut using K & CO paper from Life's Journey and the Ashly'n Alphabet cartridge.
 I used a flower power punch by EK Success for these. The cream ones are inked then layered with matching cardstock.
 These were also cut from the Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge and layered on the same cardstock used for the other cutouts. Let me know what you think :0)

All cleaned up!

All done sorting, all is back to normal now, yay! I stayed up sorting after the boys went to bed so I wouldn't lay awake thinking about how my brads were not organized :0) Crazy huh? I bet Tracy would understand ;0) I hope you all have a terrific day!

Uh Oh!

This is what happens when your seven year old 
knocks your brad box on to the floor :0)

Here is a closer look...

Then he says, "don't worry mom, I'll help you pick them up" :0)

Making progress :0)

Not doing too bad on time either. Took about a half an hour to get them all out of the carpet :0)
Now they have to be sorted again but, I think we will tackle that tomorrow!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 
Hugs!

Using Scraps Batch #4

Hello Kitty

So I decided to use up some more scraps and discovered I have an awful lot of pink :0) Not so much now! I grabbed my Hello Kitty Greetings and Font cartridges and went to town. Well...three days later...



Now to find something to use them all for :0)

Altered Disney Notebooks

Hi all! I have finally gotten something creative done :0) I have had the worst block ever lately. I hope this gets me going again! I made a couple of notebooks for my nieces that are coming out to visit from Nebraska soon. I got this idea from Heather known as GreenScrapinMachine on YT. Click her name and it will take you to the video she did of her journal using a composition notebook. I didn't have any so I used a spiral bound notebook my son had left over from school. I think they turned out great! I was asked to do a tutorial so that may be up soon :0)

 This is Gillian's. I used the Mickey and Friend's cartridge and the Mickey Font cartridge for all of the cutouts.

 This is the first divider with Mickey :0) They can also add photos to these if they would like. The other side is also designer paper with no character.

 Second divider with Daisy :0)

 And the last divider with Donald :0)

 This one is Nickol's. I wanted them to be slightly different so I put Daisy on the front instead of Minnie.

 First divider with Mickey :0)

 Second divider with Minnie :0)

And the last divider with Donald :0) These are only one subject spiral notebooks so I didn't want to take away too many pages by adding more characters than this. Maybe next time I will plan ahead and get bigger notebooks :0) You can see the video here where I go through the whole notebook, enjoy!

Thanks Heather for your great inspiration! Hugs!!!!

Disney World 2011

Hello blogger friends! We are back from our fantastic 6 day vacation at Disney World! I spent the last 9 hours doing laundry from our trip, yuck! That's a lot of laundry...6 people times 6 days plus swim wear and night clothes! I also spent the in between loads time catching up on some YT videos. I managed to get a few short videos of Caleb so I thought I would share. Maverick got some longer videos but to every one besides us they will probably be boring :0). Here is one Maverick shot when Caleb took Jeremy for a spin around the track...

This one I got when we were hanging out at the pool. They have games every night and this was just a dance session that Caleb joined in on, too cute...

I hope you all have a terrific weekend! Hugs!!!!
