State Fair

Here is a layout I did of our day at the state fair. I do not know why I got on the spinning ride with my daughter because I did not feel well afterwards. Needless to say, I was only in this one picture then we let the kids ride on a few more attractions and that was the end of this trip. For the layout I used the cricut lite cartridge "Carousel". This is such a cute cartridge and has such versatile images. Thanks for stopping by and do leave a word or two.

Berry Pickin

I have been working on layouts from our blue berry picking adventure last summer. To date, I have completed four pages. Yay, I am on a roll!! At this pace, I will be finished in no time. Anyway, on the first two page spread, I used my imagine to print the blue berry paper, the font is from the cricut alphabet cartridge that came preloaded with the E2, twine, embellishments & a pre~assembled "ten" things journal tab. For the second two page spread, I used paper from a stack by momenta titled "super paper pad", which has a nice summer theme. The font is from opposites attract, the lace pattern is from paper lace 2. I also added some stickles & rhinestones for extra bling. Thanks for looking & I do enjoy all comments. ~Hugs~

Cow Girl Up & Sweet Princess

I also decided to play with my new peachy keen stamps today. I used paper doll dress up for the doll images & clothes and the peachy keen stamp Basic paper doll PK-570 for the cowgirl and pk-490 everyday character for the sweet princess. The cowgirl is cut at 2 and 1/2 and the sweet princess is cut at 1 1/2. I had fun with those but they were time consuming. Thanks for looking and do lease a word or two! ~hugs~

Berry Picky

Seems I have been gone forever and I truly have, LOL!! I started out in California on the West Coast for a sweet getaway had to make a detour to Chicago due to a death in my family. My grandmother lost her battle with pancreatic cancer. I am saddened by her passing but holding on to God's love, grace & mercy. A wise person told me crafting heals and comforts the soul. Now that I am back home after three weeks I buried myself in my craft room all day today. Be on the lookout for LO's in memory of my grandmother but for right now, I did the last page of my strawberry picking layouts. Enjoy and do leave comments.

Vacationing in Southern California

I can hardly believe it myself, my family and I are vacationing in Southern California and yet I am stuck in my hotel room because. Why? Well it is weather is not as warm as I thought it would have been. Today's high is only 75 and right now it is 66. When I think of California, I think of sunny skies, beaches and bikini's. Well the sky is sunny but the weather is rather chilly to me. I guess I am so used to the hot and humidity of Georgia huh!! Did I mention the 3 hour time difference is driving me bananas!! The kids are up at 4am because they are still on Georgia time. Imagine that!! I need to tell them school is still in session, that way they will sleep a little later. Anyway, this gives me a reason to visit the area malls and see what I can find. I have never been into a mall without stopping at a craft store :). Anyway, I did manage to finish my daughter's 7th birthday album and I only have a few more pages left to complete in my strawberry picking album. I will post pictures when I return home since I forgot to snap them before I we left. Look out for fabulous layouts of the beach, and other tourist spots when I return. Thanks for your support!! ~Sharondalyn~
