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.

Hobo / Polar Express!

Well I dediced to do another layout before Christmas...this might be my last until the new year....Let me tell you alittle story about this one...Last year my sister's friend invited my sister, her hubby, their 2 kids, my mom, my hubby, my daughter and myself to go with them to the Polar Express train ride...well the day arrived and I get a phone call saying that my sister, their 2 kids, and her hubby weren't feeling was a bad year for sister told me to invite my sister in law, her fiance, her fiance's son, and her daughter to make a long story short...I did. We all had fun...sorry I rambled on about that now getting back to the picture...This is the hobo that rides on the Polar Express....well in the movie he did..if you haven't seen the movie...go watch will love it and so will your kids. ...If you haven't rode the train and you are in Denninson , Ohio..they also have on in Maryland...go ride it. They give you hot cocoa, cookies, sing, you meet santa..and all kinds of fun.

Layout Recipe:

Accent (Dark Blue) cut @ 8 1/2" with Storybook (shadow)

The other accent in blue (light) is cut in half and I also used storybook...this is the layer of the 8 1/2"

Hobo (title) is cut @ 1 1/2" with SB cart

I used distress ink ...tea dye to ink the lace, corners, paper, envelope..even the flowers..they were white.

I used ribbon, brads,nestabilities (journaling), envelope and some lace for a border...I tore paper, inked it with black and the tea dye ink.

I fauxed stitched around the edges, since I don't have a sewing investment. I hope you enjoy this page as much as I did putting it together. God Bless all....and Have a Merry Christmas.

Homemade Oreo cookies/ bags

Hello ladies! Looky what I made today for my mom, sister, and my gram for Thanksgiving....I am so thankful to have them all in my life...thank God for family. I am also thankful for the guys in my life (DAD, Hubby, Brother in Law) but I don't think they would appreciate these as much as the gals. I got this recipe for the Homemade Oreo cookies from Jamie @ take a look at these....this was the first time I made them. So easy to make but sticky.....I used the bottom of a glass to squish them out (add butter to the bottom so they do not stick)....

I also made these cute little bags which I got the idea from SplitCoastStampers....go take a look at their blog too....all kinds of ideas...

For the bags I used a ms border punch and some ribbon (from my stash)

and for the homemade cookies I used some bags (they are not thanksgiving but I don't think they will really care) I also used ACY and nestabilities to make the tags....used swissdots cb folder to emboss them.

I hope you enjoy as much as I did making them.....thank you for stopping and God bless you.
