Day 31 Challenge

Hello Everyone,
       Today is the day.  I will be giving away a summer vactation cricut cartridge to one lucky winner.  The cartridge is one of the seasonal cartridges from last summer.  I am so sorry that I am not putting a picture of it up on the blog.  While I started typing this my daughters school just called and said that she threw up everywhere.  Yuck.  It is going to be a very interesting day.  All you have to do is leave a comment under this post and you could be the lucky winner.  It is a brand new cartridge that has never been opened.  Have a great day everyone.

Day 30 Challenge

Good Morning Fellow Crafters,

      I am back!!! After being a little out of it this past week because of my injury I am so excited to be back on track.  I went to a crop this weekend with one of my girlfriends and I got My Sons album ALL caught up:) Woo hoo it was about 4 years behind.  It was a lot of fun but I was anxious to come home and share with all of you my favorite layout that I got done.  It is of Benjamins tball from last year when he was on the team with one of his sisters.  I hope you all enjoy and I look forward to sharing more projects with you week:)

I'm out this week

Hello all friends,
I am out for this week! No posts all week. My brother is going to be home tonight who I haven't seen for almost two full years because he was stationed in japan. He is going to be home for a full month... Woo hoo;-) the other thing is that while at my daughters swim meet this weekend I tripped and fell and severally injured both of my knee caps. Ugh they hurt so bad. I can't climb the steps to get to my craft room;-) it is going to be a very long week... On a side note I have been getting lots of things done on my gypsy so I will lots lots of great new projects next weekend... On another note I have finally broke down and ordered an imagine. I can't wait to get it;-) I also plan to get a new flip for more videos. So far on my videos I have been using my iPhone but the downside is that I have to have my hubby here to hold it will I tape the episode so with a flip I will be able to do everything by myself even when he is at work;-) which in turn means more videos for everyone;-). I hope you all have a great week. Big hugs;-)

DAY 12,13,14 and 15 Of 365

Hello Fellow Crafters,

      I am so sorry that once again I have missed posting a new project this past week.  One of my brothers that is in the marine corps finally got home.  We have been so so so busy trying to get him home from Japan.  He has been in Japan for the past two years so needless to say this has been a very exciting week for us.  He is still just in California but should be back in Ohio in the next week or so:) Here is a layout that I made this morning and I am going to be crafting all day so I will have some more stuff to put up on my blog for this week.  I hope you all enjoy.  I used the Home Sweet Home paper pack from Close to my Heart and then I used the Old West cartridge to create this one.  I hope you all have an AWESOME Sunday and see you back here tomorrow:)

Day 11 of 365

Okay here it is.  I am so so so excited with the way this turned out.  I have been working on this for the past week or so as I am going to be teaching a class on how to make it at our local Memories Expo.  I hope you all enjoy it.  I haven't decided where to hang it in my house yet but don't worry I will figure it out.  Banners seem to be the big thing right know.  If you are in need of purchasing some banners you can click on my sponsor's link as Close to My Heart has some wonderful banners.  I hope you all stay safe and warm tonight.  We have one heck of a snow storm here in Ohio today.

Day 10 of 365

Here is my day 10 challenge.  I hope you all enjoy and I can not wait for you to see my next challenge.  Have a great night:)

Day 9 of 365 crafting projects

Hello Fellow Crafters,

     Wow this past week has been difficult.  It is snowing snowing and snowing here in Ohio.  I wanted to share this layout with you as I am trying to get my middle daughters scrapbook caught up.  This layout is all about her first tooth that she lost.  I took a ton of pictures so I made lots of areas for pictures.  I hope you all enjoy:)

Good Saturday Morning Fellow Crafters,

       Welcome to my blog.  For those of you that have never hopped over here before WELCOME. This is my entry for the Valentines Blog Hop.  I Believe this is the last stop for the hop so I hope you have enjoyed all of the different projects that we have all been working on.  I was so excited to put this up on my blog for everyone.  I would have never thought that this shade of blue would work so well with this bright pink and red.  I thought it turned out awesome and a great way to add a few other colors to Valentines Day.  I would also like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY LITTLE BUBBA.  My youngest child of three is my Benjamin.  My middle daughter emma (who is only one year older) nicknamed Benjamin, Bubba because she wasn't able to say Benjamin.  He is such a wonderful Boy and has brought so much joy to my life.  I can not believe that he is 6 years old today December 8th.  It is so exciting that he is getting older but also so sad.  I hope you all enjoy and make sure to come back tomorrow as my day 9 post will be unbelievable and I think you all will enjoy.  I will give you a small hint. It has only seven pieces to it and it is not a card and not a layout.  What could it be you ask? Make sure to check back tomorrow to find out:)

Day 7 of 365 days of crafting

Here is the Day 7 Challenge. I love the way this layout turned out.  The name of this paper is Cherry o by close to my heart. I love the close to my heart paper and there is so many things that can be down with it.  I titled this as Cherry O because I plan to use it for my middle daughters scrapbook and she loves playing Cherry O the game.  I hope you all enjoy it:)

Day 6 of 365 days of Crafting

Hey Everyone,
      I am so sorry that I didn't get anything up on the blog yesterday.  My oldest daughter came home with pink eye yesterday after school.  We have never had pink eye before so it was a mess. To make it all worse we ended up taking her to the eye doctor today because her eye was swollen the size of a golf ball.  Turns out she has bacterial pink eye instead of viral which is a worse form.  And to top it all off I can not figure out if I have yet or not.  My left eye is so so so itchy but not pink yet so we will see.  Tomorrow I am the last stop on the Valentines blog hop so I am going to put three projects up and the last will be my Valentines project that I made this past weekend.  I hope you all have a wonderful night and I look forward  to another week of crafting:)

Day 5 of 365 days of crafting

Hello Everyone,
      This one is later today as I had to take my oldest to the doctors this morning.  I did finish my project that I am so excited to share with all of you however I thought that today I needed to share another card with you.  My husbands uncle was just diagnosed with cancer so this is a card that I made for him.  We are sending this one out today so I will share my other big project tomorrow.  I am also part of the Valentines blog hop on saturday so my project will be for that.  I hope you all have a great day and I can't wait to see you back here tomorrow:)

Day 4 of 365

Hi everyone.  I am so so so tired today. I just got my kids off to school and want nothing more than to go back to bed BUT I can't:)  I am the parent volunteer in my middle daughters 1st grade room. So no extra nap for me today. Oh well!!! I really wanted to share a surprise project with all of you today but my 5 year old son started Martial Arts last night and I just didn't get a chance to get it finished.  I will have it as my day 5 project so make sure you check my blog tomorrow.  I also wanted to share with all of you that I am going to be in the Valentines blog hop this weekend.  I will be loading mine to my blog late Friday night as Saturday my oldest is in a swim meet at 6:30 in the morning and it is also my little boys 6th birthday.  So needless to say it is going to be a crazy day:) Okay so this card is one that my little Emma picked out for me to make yesterday.  She is my 7 year old that ONLY wanted a babybug for Christmas.  She is so funny as she runs that bug better than I run mine.  LOL so she is the designer behind this card.  We used the Create a Critter cricut cartridge and the crab is cut at 3 1/2 inches and is so stinkin cute.  We also used to cuttlebug to emboss the white paper.  We used the swiss dots embossing folder. I hope you all enjoy another card idea and I look forward to seeing all of the comments that you leave me:) Have a great day and I will see you all back here tomorrow!!!!
