"A little Birdie Told Me..."

I made this LO for my daughter's birthday album. I am giving myself only a couple of days to get all of her pictures from her 7th birthday into her album. So no later than Thursday guys. Hold me to it. Ok, so here are the details. I used cricut cartridges "Straight from the Nest" and Disney "Pooh Font". I also used my new EK Success punch to create the border at the top of the page. That is such a great punch because it does two designs that you can layer. I picked it up at Michaels over the weekend using a 50% off coupon. It is regularly priced at $27 which is expensive if you ask me. The paper is from the paper studio stack titled " Make A Wish". Thanks for looking.

Life's a Beach

I made this layout of our trip to Florida. Every time we visit Florida we experience something new and exciting. I used cricut cartridge "Life's a beach" for the images. This is one of my favorite cartridges and it is a must have to any collection. Enjoy

Happy Birthday Little Lady Bug

I just can't believe how fast time flies. It seems just like yesterday I was holding my little girl in my arms and today I am working on her 7th birthday album. All I can say is, don't blink or I might miss her middle school graduation. Well anyway, here is a birthday layout. I tell you I don't remember hardly much anymore as I am trying to remember what cartridges I used on this LO. Well, thanks for looking and I just enjoy reading all of your wonderful comments so please leave one.

Hello everyone, hope my followers are doing great!! What a busy week I had. Between returning from my visit to Chicago, and handling last minute PTA business, I hardly had time to make graduation gifts for my girlfriends daughters. So you guys know what that means right, I was up extremely late last night crafting. I decided to decorate tumblers I picked up at Ross. They were a great buy at $3.99 each. Both girls are entering middle school this fall. I used beyond birthdays and wrap it up for the phrases. Enjoy!!

So very thankful!!

As the end of yet another school year draws near, I just can't believe how fast time flies. It seems as if the first day of school was only yesterday. My kids had such wonderful teachers this year it is so hard to say goodbye to them. Today my daughter's class participated in a sundae celebration and tomorrow my son's class will watch a movie, "James and the Giant Peach", and eat "Peach Cobbler". Yummy. So I decided I had to make end of the year teacher gifts even though I don't want to leave such wonderful teachers. So here is what I came up with. I decided to use a oldie but goodie cartridge and make purses that I filled with miniature bottles of lotions from victoria's secret. The paper is from the DCWV 12 by 24 adhesive backed stack. I found working with this paper rather challenging along the score lines. Thanks for looking, commenting and following my blog.
