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.

Gods letter and footprints!

Hello everyone!

My mom is making a beach themed basket for her friend..she wanted to do a bottle with etched footprints so I told her I would help with that....because she has never done it before...

This is just a start of the bottle , she is going to add some sand inside the bottle and some seashells....which I think will look cool...we did one bottle the other day but did not quite turn out the way we wanted it I redid it.

I used NA for the feet (going up the bottle ) hope you can see it well...I cut them out @ .3/4" and then etched them with etching cream. very simple technique.

I love it. I then tied some rope and a footprints charm that I found in the baby section at michaels.....

Inside is a letter from god that reads:


You may not know me, but I know everything about you psalm 139:1 I know when
you sit down and rise up. I am fimilar with all your ways. Even the very hairs on your head are numbered. For you were made in my image.

Genesis 1:27 In me you live and move and have your being.

Acts 17:28 For you are my offspring. I knew you even before you were conceived.

Jeremiah 1:4-5 I chose you when I planned creation........etc...

This has alot more to it but I hope you get the idea.....her friend knows this letter very well so I printed this letter on cream paper, torn the edges and inked then rolled it up and tied raffia to it and stuck it in the bottle....I know she will love it...then my mom is putting it in a basket filled with sand and shells ....thanks for stopping by!

World of Knowledge!

Hello ladies! This lo is of my dd, she is now 5 years old and she had to get registered for Kindergarten...She loved it and she was so ready! I explained to her that they will give her a little test to see how much she knew...One of the people that tested her told me that she was advanced for some of the math and another part of the test. She said most 5 year olds don't do as well as she did, Well she was actually 4 at the time of the registration. Sorry had to brag alittle!

The reason I named this "World of Knowledge" is because now the kids have to know so much more before they go to kindergarten. They asked her math, science, history, some reading, shapes, numbers, alphabet, and etc. I don't remember myself going through all this when I went...oh well, I guess it is better to have all this at a young age...because they are like sponges and they learn so much!

Okay now for the layout!

I used GS for the abc frame cut @ 9 1/2" also used it for the file card tucked behind the pic for journaling (you know I love to journal) so I always find a place for that. This is cut @ 2"

I used Lockertalk for the world cut @ 2 1/2" and pop dotted it!

I used MF for the "OF" cut @ 1" and the "2010" also @ 1"

The word "KNOWLEDGE" is cut @ .3/4" cut with Mickey Font

I doodled and cut out a pic of her and pop dotted, added some clips to the pic and wala another layout...very simple but to the point!

Pumpkin of possibilities / PS Challenge!

Hello everyone! This lo is of my dd when she was about 2 years old...My mom, sister, hubby, nephew, niece, daughter and myself went to Trax farm. She had a blast trying to pick the perfect pumpkin. She sat on these pumpkins and so I took her pic. Look at all the pumpkins to choose from.

I made this lo for the Pratical scrappers challenge. They want you to use pattern paper. I used 3 of them. Go check them out...

I used the leaf border (at the bottom from a fall stack ) cut the leaf part out of the dcwv fall stack and placed it ontop of another pattern paper as a border.

I then used a pattern paper (all from the dcwv fall stack) (I think it was from that or from the debbie mumm paper, well can't remember) under the pic and used my zigzag sizzors....

I Used SYI for the tree cut @ 10", pumpkins cut @ 2 and 2 1/2"

Used ACY for the leaves cut @ 2"

I used George for part of the title "OF" cut @ .3/4" and then for the Tag cut @ 2"

The oval was also from george, don't remember size.

I doodled, added stickers for the word "PUMPKIN" in the title, I added ribbon to tag and staple, Added raffia to make a corn stalk and then tied with rope. Added a little tiny mouse, look closely and you will see him hiding in the pumpkins. I used burlap and I think that is all....thanks for stopping by. God bless everyone!

Guess what I'm watching right now!

Okay you give up.....ECLIPSE info on OPRAH!!!!! Rob, Kristen and Taylor all on right now...go watch it....I am obsessed with twilight saga...I have been reading the books almost finished with Breaking dawn!

When it rains it pours!

Well let me start by saying that it has been nothing but bad luck around here lately. I have been still having my pains and I had to reschedule my ultrasound for next friday so I still won't no anything until then. Then on Saturday last week the
8th(my dd's celebration) we came home that day , I washed clothes, and then my hubby went down stairs and found water all over the floor in our basement , it was sewage and washing machine water...gross!!!!!! We thought we got the problem but then today I washed clothes again and the water started coming up the wash tub by our washers, so when my hubby gets home he will have to find out what it is. Also this morning I went down stairs and found water coming in from outside. We have been having alot of rain here lately, we have never had water or anything in our basement.

OH well...hopefully we will get everything fixed!!!!!! thanks for stopping by and listening to me!
