"Reindeer" in training :)

Good morning everyone. This is the card that I am entering in Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge over at .  This weeks challenge is to create something with a Christmas theme, using Celebrations (or if you don't have that an older cartridge.)  Celebrations is more of a birthday cartridge so I had to put my thinking cap on :) . I decided to cut out the dog with the party hat on. I was going to make the hat  a santa hat, but then I thought about the cute little dog on How The Grinch Stole Christmas... so I decided to make him a "Reindeer" in training hehe. For this card I made the border using the 0 on page 91, I put several down flipped them and welded them to a 5 3/4" square on my gypsy. The dog is from page 112 . I cut the hat off so that I could add the "antlers", which is the hat topper from page 104. I used PK490- Everyday face assortment from Peachy Keen stamps. I did'nt have the Everyday Character Face Parts (which I have got to get! Love Love Love their stamps..) so I modified the Stamp that I had adding a little to the nose and mouth.  I used my White gelly roll pen to stich around the edges for the finishing touch. I hope you like it, and really appreciate all your comments. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone, since it is almost Halloween. I thought I would share a scrapbook page that I made when I first started scrapbooking a few years ago.... (this is pre-cricut :-0 ) I used felt stickers and stencils that I got out of the crafts department at Wal-Mart and of course my shape scissors that I had to use for my picture border . Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I really appreciate it.

Another Challenge!!!

It's Throwback Thursday again, (well actually it's friday.. but you know what I mean haha). Emma has another great challenge going on over at The challenge is a sports theme using an older cricut cartridge. I am using Sports Mania, it is a great cartridge for all you sport enthusiasts.. it has alot of different sport themes that you can use:)  This is a 2 page LO, that I made of my daughter when she was in volleyball. I used the I dig volleyball from the cart on one page and the background feature for the  other page, I tweaked it a little. I wanted the blue to show through a little more so I used my craft knife to make the cuts a little wider. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

My...How time flies:(

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a happy Tuesday. I'm working on some challenges that are going on right now hopefully will be able to post them soon. In the meantime I thought I would share with you a 2 page layout that I made of one of my daughters. This was taken when she was 4... she is 17 now. It actually took me about 3 days to finish this because I would start to tear up everytime I started on it, remembering when she was little and wishing that my baby hadn't grown up soooo fast. Sorry about the pictures I just couldn't get the light right on them and kept getting a glare. Thanks for stopping by.

Joy over at was having a random act of kindness blog hop wich I thought was GREAT. I was trying to think of something that I could do to participate in that and while I was at Robyn's blog mypinkstamper she was doing a challenge to do something with your kids or for a I had an epiphany! My random act of kindness was to make some cards and send them to our local children's hospital..(thank you Robyn) so here are a few of the cards that I am sending. I hope that they will put a smile on thier faces:)
