Here is the action for my wobble :o)

For those who are not familiar with the Action Wobbles here is how they work.  One side sticks to your image which can be a die cut or digital, or anything really, and then the other side sticks to the card, layout, or altered item.  Action Wobbles can be used anywhere on anything, and can be purchased here

Up next is my little guy Caleb who has done this last card for our team. He is currently not crafting at the moment so he is on leave :o) Please go see his last card for Halloween at

Happy Birthday Ty!

TSQ Feature Designer Post HERE

Another One!

I have another post today for one of my sons :o) Ty is turning 12 years old at 2:25 this afternoon! He came in to this world weighing only 4 lb 7 oz and was a whole 18 in long :o) His story is a little different as he had to fight to be here. Some pregnancy complications caused him to stop growing at a certain point but, that hasn't stopped him from being a feisty one! He is still a little on the small side and a wonderful kid! Here he is :o)

From this...

To this...

He definitely won his battle to get here and struggles from time to time, as he always will, but you would never know that he wasn't just a normal regular kid. And yes, those are earrings :o) I pierced his ears at age 6 when he asked me to and they look great, I think anyway!

Happy Birthday Ty Guy!
Love, mom!

Happy Birthday Dallas!


Today's post is dedicated to my son Dallas :o) Those of you who have "known" me for a while know that I have four sons. For those of you who think Caleb is an only child, wrong :o) He has three older brothers and let me tell you how rowdy my house gets, hee hee! 

Anyway...15 years ago this afternoon, at 12:26 to be exact, brought me a new bundle of joy! It wasn't easy, 12 hours of labor, an epidural that wore off and a little situation of almost being too big, Dallas made his entrance in to this world :o) 7 lb  2 1/2 oz and 19 1/2 in long. Where has the time gone?

From this...

To this...

Happy Birthday Boo!!!!

Love, Mom

Password books

Hi there!

So my mom asked me if I could make her a password book for her websites and internet use :o) Of course I will! I remembered seeing Robin at Injoy Stampin make some a while ago. I found the video I was looking for and you can see it here. I have made several and plan on making more as my mom wants to give some to her friends :o) Mine are not the same size as Robin's but they are super cute! She gave me the general idea and I took it from there :o) If you would like to see a tutorial on these just let me know! I used some chipboard, pattern paper, pages printed off my computer and my bind-it-all :o)

Here they are...

I made this one for my mom to match the notebook I previously made for her

These are the inside pages

My sister's

And the boys wanted one after seeing them... This is for Dallas

What Caleb is going to do with this I don't know but he wanted one anyway :o)

Ty's... he loves skating!

Have a fabulous day!

Well, Caleb had the opportunity come up to go to the circus with one of his neighbor friends on Saturday. He had a blast! Apparently it has changed a lot over the last 30 years since I have been :o) I'm glad he had such a good time though. So, we thought a Thank You card would be appropriate since he was invited to attend. I just so happen to have some circus themed paper from a pack I purchased at Target over the summer. Sometimes they get some really cool packs in for their $1 bins :o)

Here is our card...

And of course... in action!
