Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

This is a lo I made for the 4th of, red and white. I was trying to get a little ahead, because I will be away for a couple days at PresqueIsle in Erie, I won't be back until Monday evening...I used ds for the title which I used wildcard cart for everything....stars, celebrate, and rockets. I used the extra star pieces for the background (these were leftover from the star cutout). I did not glue down as I am going to add the pics the day after the 4th...but wanted to show what I've done. I staggered the title celebrate so you see the white background...When I complete I will post with the pics. Have a wonderful weekend!

Yummy Watermelon!

Hi everyone on this rainy friday! I thought I would make a bright and cheerful layout....I love how this turned out. This is of my dd on the 4th of July at her Aunt Bonnie's is tradition that we go there every year and she loves it. She also loves watermelon...she must of ate about 3 pieces that day.

I used SYI cart in DS to make the watermelon border....
I used OA for the Title also designed in ds.
I used ms drippy goo punch to look like juice running down....
I used PSB for the tag behind the picture (the one with the ribbon) is the journaling...

I always love to journal and write down the date so I remember...but I don't always have room on the page so I either stick the journaling on the back or behind the picture....that is what I did here.

I used some buttons and ribbon from my stash...
I used DCWV nana's nursery paper.

Hope this brightens your day, it did mine!

TIME flies by!

I used alot of carts in this one...I wanted to try something different. I used my ds for mostly all of this layout...and since I've been making cards I thought I would get back to a layout...Here goes...I used Jasmine for the title " TIME Flies by"...which it really has. My dd is 9mths in the left picture, and 3years old in the right picture...she just turned 4 in May. I used george for the squares..(alot of this I don't remember size since I used design studio. I used WC cart for the branches and birds...I used AE for the frame and swirls..the swirls cut at 3 1/4". The birds , I started at 2 1/4" and kept shrinking it...I did 4 of those...doodled the swirls on them and inked...(almost everything is inked). I used Lockertalk for the clock. I added a silver brad.I also added jewels...had to add a little color and bling...The pictures in black and white I used my computer to change the color...The colors look better in person...they are pinks, blues, white, black, light brown, and light yellow, some gray...I think that is it..hope you enjoy and stop back soon!

Anniversary card!

I have 3 anniversary's to make cards mom and dad, my sister and brother in law, and my mother and father in law. They are all for June....This is just one of them that I made...I hope you like.

I used the magnolia challenge layout for this one. I love this layout...I think I will be using this again....simple. The hardest thing was piecing the ariel and eric together....because of tiny parts.
I used george for the circle cut at 6" and then cut in half...
I used jasmine frame cut at 6" off of the dreams come true cart.
I used Ariel and Eric at 4" off of dct. I also used gold vellum for eric and some of can't really tell from picture..but you get the idea.
I added pearls and inside I used OA "Happy anniversary!" and wala done.
