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.

Transformer out of legos?

Hello ladies...It has been a while since I have been on here but I have been quite busy lately, with working out, cleaning, playdates, appointments,birthdays, etc. ....but I managed to get a layout done...

This LO is of my daughter, my hubby, my sister, and my nephew...We were in Disney in October 2010. This is of legoland downtown disney...we loved it. As you can see my sister and nephew were running away from the transformer (if you ever saw transformers you would know that there are good and evil my sister was pretending like they were after them) (this was not a planned pic but I snapped it as they were running away)...they crack me up...then my daughter and hubby were standing there ready to take a picture...

So I decided to put them both this is sort of a funny layout. (to me anyway)

Layout recipe:

Transformer (title) cut @ 1 1/2" with PSB
Out cut @ 1"
Of cut @ 1"
LEGOS !!!! cut @ 1 1/4"

bubble cut @ 1 1/2" with graphically speaking (says "OH NO RUN")

2 strips of scraps (journaling)

ms bubble border and corner punches

floss and button....easy peasy....might have to do more easy ones to get my disney layouts done. Thanks for stopping by and Have a great day!

Hello ladies...I have been busy working out , playdates with my daughter and her friends, and just getting ready for all these birthdays on Sunday....well this is the last one I had to make...I made 3 different techniques that I usually don't do...I found the all on splitcoast stampers. If you click on my title for these projects it will take you to the folded frame card/ You will have to find the others....

All of these are for a young girl who will be turning 14....

Anyway...I used GS for the flowers on the pull up treat, added a tag and a stamp"It's you special day" added a bow, ribbon and hershey bar inside...and this one is done.

Then I made the Folded frame card..pop up dots (doesn't stick as well as I thought it would), Then a flower from my stash and a stamp that says " Just think, with every birthday you're even closer to being more like your parents"

Inside: Happy birthday (stamp)

Totally tote bag:

Followed instructions from splitcoast stampers, then added a K&company glitter flower, and used ms stitched border punch, added some flower brads and inked...very cute huh? I love this little bag and I stuffed inside a heart necklace. I think she will love it.

Thanks for stopping by and I Hope everyone is having a beautiful day!
