Hello everyone, I'm so glad you stopped by :)

Today I have a double layout to share with you that I made for our challenge at Red Carpet Studio!

Our challenge today is inspired by the movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" Since the layout team and the card team are both doing this challenge you can make an anything goes layout, or card of anything  "sweet" :)

This is my 2 page layout that I made for a friend of mine for her scrapbook:) It is for the baby's first birthday. I cut the birthday cake and the number 1 in half :D I got this idea from Lauren's Creative she has some amazing layouts (thanks for the inpiration Lauren :)  and I have to admit I have scraplifted a few for my albums. They are soo cute! I couldn't help myself hehe. I changed a few things, but the layout of it is the same:)

I used some papers that I had on hand, from an all seasons stack that I purchased at Hobby Lobby a few years ago:) The cuts came from the Celebrations cricut cartridge. I also added some twine for the ribbons on the presents and added some bling to the brithday cake. For the bottom of the cake I also cut out some circles for the "icing" on the bottom :)

Christmas Layout

Hello everyone, I'm so glad you stopped by :)

Our Layout challenge starts today over at Red Carpet Studios.
I used my MS punch for the snowflake border and the individual snowflake on the bottom of the page. The Christmas title and the little Santa tag was cut on my silhouette:)   and I put a little strip of the washi tape with the presents on it along the side :) I also used some of my twine added to the bottom of my photos.

This is the challenge for this week, it is inspired by the movie
"The Santa Clause" - Christmas layouts! Feel free to use the following movie still as inspiration.

Christmas decor

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great day!

I just wanted to share a little something that I made today.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the image in vinyl and adhered it to a glass block that I bought at A.C. Moore:) Then I made a bow to go around it and now all I have to do is get the lights to go in it and put it up on my mantel.

This is the front view...

and this is the top view of my bow :D

I thought it turned out pretty good for my first attempt :)
I am entering this into the following challenges :
1. 3 Girl Jam = Christmas Inspiration
Thanks for stoppping by and letting me share part of my day with you.

Glittered ornaments

Hi! I am glad you came to visit today :) I know I haven't been posting much lately, but it seems like the holidays always seem to have me rushed. Working in the retail buisness doesn't really help either LOL.

I have been trying to get a few projects done. Like, some glittered ornaments that I am making for my son. While I was looking around I found a cut file for the "I love you" sign in sign language. Since, my mom and dad are deaf I knew they would love this. So, I kinda got sidetracked and made theirs first before I finished my son's lol ;) These are what they look like and I really like how they turned out. I am thinking I may make some for myself!
This is a picture of the front of the ornament...

this is the other side (I ended up changing the bow on it before I gave it to them...
and this is the whole set that I made them.
Aren't they adorable??
When I get some more projects done, I will share them with you. I have about 3 or 4 more things I am wanting to try out and make hehe.
Thanks for stopping by and
Have a great day!!

Hello everyone:)

Goodness the days are just flying by!! I seem to be getting later and later on my posts..these holidays are just getting the best of me lol.

Made Especially For You's challenge is up and it is a really easy one and fits right in with the theme that is going on right now :)  Our challenge is to make a Christmas card with a die cut. Now, as I said these holidays are really getting me. It seems like everytime I get something done, I have 2 more things to do in it's place! If I make it through the holidays it will be a miracle!! 

So, I kinda took the easy way out.  The silhouette store was having a great black friday deal where you could get all of the images for half off...just 50 cents. Woo hoo!! They have great images wording layouts and cards...oh yeah cards!! I decided to try out one of the cute cards they had:) It has the dimensions and different parts all ready for you to cut :D All I had to do was add the colored paper and put it togethere. Now that's my kind of easy hehe.  Okay, I am making this post a bit longer than I need to, so I will get on with it, and show you my card.

I did also ink the edges, so I did add a little extra to it lol. These cards are great when your in a jam and need a quick card:)

Our sponser for this week is :

1 stamp set of their choice to the lucky winner :)

  Hello everyone, I am getting a little bit of a late start today :)

     Our challenge is going on over at Red Carpet Studios today. This week is the Layout challenge  and we were to make a layout inspired from the:
      "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" - All you have to do is  create a layout about travel/vacation. Since I have a gazillion  pictures of our trips to Disney World  (okay, maybe not a gazillion, but I bet I am pretty well darn close hehe) , I thought I would take this challenge and get some of them scrapbooked :)
While we were at Disney we took a boat over to the Boardwalk,  we had soo much fun over there just looking around and they have the best shops for your sweet tooth!! There is an ice cream shop over there that serves something called "the sink"  oh my goodness!!! There were 7 of us and it took all we had just to get that thing down lol. There are 7 different ice creams, every topping you can think of , about 2 cans of whip topping and cherries on top :D  If that is a little too much for you, then there is a bakery shop on the other side that serves something my daughter LOVED. She loves cheesecake and brownies...2 of her most favorite things :) While we were there we found a cheesecake brownie, a delicious brownie topped with creamy cheesecake .... yummmie!!!  Okay , I am getting hungry gotta stop the food talk lol.
Our sponser for this week is :
