First Time Voter


Hello and happy Saturday, cooler temps in the Commonwealth for the last few days.  Today I am headed to another crop, hope to get at least three LOs completed.  Today's project share is another 8 1/2 x 11 LO documenting the first time Baby Girl voted, during the primary election in June.  I used sketch inspiration from Sketch N Scrap #184 and papers from a very old Lisa Bearnson kit.  I am sharing this LO for the Anything Goes challenge #98 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Happy Birthday


Hello Wednesday, back with my second post for the day.  My original post had been scheduled since Sunday and I didn't notice that I failed to mention two significant events that occurred today.  Today marks the 18th anniversary of the 911 terrorist acts, we shall always remember.  Today also marks what would have been  my FIL's 81st birthday.  So I decided to share a birthday card for my second post using sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches #520, pattern papers from the Graphic 45 Celebrate 6x6 paper pad, a Stampabilities stamp for the sentiment and some Gina Marie enamel dots.

Senior Prom


Hello and happy Wednesday, wow I'm on a roll sharing on my blog three days in a row!  Today's project share is a double LO created for Baby Girl's high school album.  I'm going to a crop on Saturday and I hope to get more pages done, I have a new deadline so let's hope I can meet it.  When I document a story it is more important that the pictures tell the story so I usually don't use a lot of embellishments.  For this LO I used the Formal Occasion  Cricut cartridge, Recollections and Paper Studio stickers, trim from the Target dollar spot,  and finally an actual admission ticket.  All of these pictures were taken before she actually went to the prom!  I'm sharing this LO for the September Anything Goes #125 over at Love to Scrap challenge blog.

Thank you for your visit, have a wonderful Wednesday!

Thank You


Hello and happy Tuesday, I'm back today to  share a super clean and simple thank you card.  I was able to attend a crop for a few hours on Sunday and I finished two LOs that I'll be sharing later this week.  For this card I used sketch inspiration from Sketch N Scrap #153, pattern papers from the Heidi Swapp Favorite Things 6x6 pattern papers and a Paper Studio stamp for the sentiment.  Another card done and ready to go postal.  I'm also sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #97 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll return soon!

First Day



 Hello and happy Monday, I meant to share this post yesterday but as life would have it I didn't.  Today's project share is my back to school/first day of college LO for Baby Girl.  Now that she is away at school I have to  rely on her to send me pictures!  This LO came together fairly quickly, I used misc papers, mostly scraps and some AC letters for the title.  The embellishments are from the Papert Studio and were purchased on clearance!  This one of those LOs that I have mixed feelings about and at some point I may redo it, the quality of the pictures and the pattern paper have me second guessing it.  I am sharing this LO for the Just Us Girls Challenge  #504.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful week.

CIU #182 - Farm Friends


Hello and happy Friday, continued prayers for those affected by hurricane Dorian.  Today's project share is my latest design team project for the Cut it Up challenge blog.  The theme for challenge #182 is Farm Friends and our sponsor is Scrappy Dew.

I certainly struggled with this project which I started over several times and eventually decided to wait to add a sentiment later.  My card includes the pig from our sponsor, it is part of the Farm Palz 2 patterns.  The  wood grain paper came from a very old   CTMH paper pack, I cut the grass using the Artiste cartridge and the ant came from the Nate's ABCs cartridge.

I hope you will visit the Cut it Up challenge blog for more design team inspiration and decide to share your farm friends project for a chance to win some crafting goodies from our sponsor.  The challenge starts today and ends Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at noon EST.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Thinking of You


Hello and happy Thursday, overcast and sun this morning but the afternoon forecast calls for rain courtesy of  hurricane Dorian today.  Today's project share is a card using sketch inspiration from Atlantic Hearts #332 and more pattern paper from the Amy Tangerine Sunshine & Good Times  6x6 paper pad. I used a Crafter's Companion scallop border die and a Spellbinders hexagon die, the sentiment has been sitting waiting to be used for sometime, I think it was cut with the George Cricut cartridge.  Added a few Bo Bunny Gems and this card is done and ready to go postal!  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #97 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, hope you'll return soon!
