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.

The biggest caterpillar I've ever seen!

Hi everyone on this (well now) super saturday! This has nothing to do with crafts but my dh and dd (4yearsold) found this very strange and big caterpillar in our dd has been into finding bugs lately...the other day she found Locust shells so to find this big caterpillar was a treasure to her...I just had to take a picture of it...Never saw one this big and this beautiful before....It is about 3 1/2" long (that is why I had a tape measure to show the size of it)...don't know what kind it is, so if anyone knows let me know...thanks!

Make a Wish!

Hello everyone! My niece Courtneys' birthday is coming up she will be 6...I thought I would design her a card...I designed this in ds using HD and Jasmine carts...

I don't remember all the demensions but I know the flourish was cut @ 3 1/4" using Home Decor.

The shooting stars were cut from 1 1/4" up to 3" ( I made 6 of them since she will be 6 , so I guess she can make 6 wishes with this one card...haha!)

I pop dotted the extra stars....the paper is white, metallic pink and a purple...she is having a hanna montana birthday and I figured these were the best colors + she loves pink and purple.

Inside I used Jasmine for the make a wish and the 6 on the front of card (DS) and extra stars that were cut....I embossed the background paper with CB folder happy birthday...I also cb with swiss dots on the flourish and the words Make a wish! Hope you like!

I added some flowers, cb the dragonfly and flowers, inked and added gold pearls...oh, Memories are from HD also...inked.

Inside reads:

It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, and laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
It will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

With loving Memories!

Thanks for looking and all that inspire me!
