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.

Trick or Treat (I think treat)!

Hello ladies. I have been on a roll lately even though my dd (LILY) is not even in school yet. So I thought I would do a Halloween card...I usually don't do Halloween but since my brother passed almost 3 years ago I have been thinking about him (his birthday is on Halloween) so this is always a special day in my heart now. Always cherish what you have because you never know when it will be gone...sorry for rambling on. Anyway I decided to do this card ...I love how this came out.

Sorry no cricut:

I used nestabilities for the frame in the middle and cuttlebugged with swiss dots. The bird and pumpkin in the middle is a stamp that I colored with my colored pencils and used mineral spirits to blend it.

I used houndstooth cb folder for the background.

Added a rubon to a piece of white those birds.

I used a ms drippy goo punch and inked in red. (blood)

More rubons up the side of card.

Inside of card:

cb houndstooth again for background

nestabilities for the middle and I wrote Happy Halloween and faux stitched around it because it was to plain

I added some stickers for the trick or treat....added ms drippy goo punch and inked in red for blood....hope you enjoy.

Thank you for taking time to stop by...God bless all!

New school tags / Frosted Designs challenge!


I saw that frosted designs is doing back to school so I entered these for the challenge..go to their blog and check them out...they always have some cool challenges... or click on my title and it will link you right there.

Hello ladies. I have been managing to get some time to myself and get things done. Since school will be starting for my dd in another week. I had to get her new tag done for her bookbag. I made her one last year for preschool but it fell apart and she wanted a new one, so while I was making hers (Lillian) I made 2 more , one for my niece (Morgan) who is 3 . she will be starting preschool this year, and the other is for my nephew Owen he will be starting kindergarten also.

The one with the kitty is Lillian's (my dd's), the doggie is for Morgan (which the theme of her class is doggies). Then you should know the rocket is for my nephew Owen. he has a star wars backpack with reds, blacks, white and lime greens, so this is what I thought would go with his.

I used my ds to weld their names and for all the cuts. I used flower cb folder and swiss dots. I punched little butterflies out (for lily's and morgan's tags)and doodled some lines to look like the butterflies were flying...Owen's I pieced together in different colors.

Then I ran them through my xyron with laminating supplies.

The last pic on here is of my dd's backpack. Lillian picked the colors she wanted and when we put it on her bookbag it all went

Thanks for stopping by and God bless all! I hope everyone has a great weekend.
