Wednesday Wanderings

Hello and welcome to another Wednesday Wanderings post!  This week we have been experiencing relatively nice temps, with the pollen being the biggest reason you don't want to go outside!  I've been trying to get myself ready for the next two weekends of being on roadtrips. 

I am planning to go to Cassie's weekend crop next week, while trying to sort through what I wanted  to take I came across several unfinished LOs that I thought I'd try to tackle this week.  Today I'm sharing one of those LOs, it is one of the pages that I was working on for my husband's fraternity album.  The LO uses some of the pictures taken when we went to Indiana for the fraternity's 100th year celebration.  This one is done without alot of fanfare, using paper and misc. items from my stash.  The pictures and their significance is what's most important.  I probably won't get anymore unfinished projects completed before I leave for the crop so I'll just pack them up to take with me!

Wishing you a wonderfully blessed day.

10K Ready

Today's LO will be included in DD's school album, it uses pictures taken just before they were about to participate in last month's 10k.  We were so proud of her as it was her first time participating in  a 10k and it rained; she really doesn't care for the outdoors!

The inpsiration for the LO came from the Desk to Done challenge #30 hosted by Tiare from Embrace Your Art.  I really wanted some running themed paper but I didn't have any and I couldn't find any at the three stores where I looked so I settled on some Get Your Game on Paper from Little Yellow Bicylce.  Even though this is another simple LO I used four different machines to cut the embellishments and lettering.  The stars are EK Success stickers and the bling Jolee's; which is an EK Success brand (something I recently learned).

Happy Easter

Today is Friday and I'm doing the happy dance because this I'm looking forward to just a litle bit of down time.  So much has been happening and the next two weeks my schedule is jam packed so I need to regroup so I'll be ready.

I'm sharing some simple Easter cards that I put together for the kids, I really don't like making cards so I think that's one reason I don't make it a priority.  Even though I don't like making cards I really wanted to get some Easter cards done since I didn't send out any Christmas cards.  Oh well maybe one day when I'm more organized.

I cut the bunnies with my cameo, added some glimmer mist, a few gemstones, ribbon and some opal white pearl accent for one of the tails.  The pattern paper is from the DCWV Year Round Stack.  I am also happy to report that I've stepped out of my zone and used two additional features with my cameo, shadowing and the print and cut feature. 

Over at Scraps of Color  this week's blog challenge is a baby or Easter themed project. Wishing you and yours a blessed Easter!

Little Ladies

It has been way too long since I have shared on my blog, life has just been way too busy.  Today's LO is one that I started while I was off on Tuesday and finished last night.  The LO uses pictures taken of our daughter  and some of her school mates as they were heading to a banquet and masquerade gala.  They were in Virginia Beach attending/competing in the Students Taking Action with Recognition state conference for FCCLA.  She did a project on bullying and was recognized with a bronze medal.

I used my cameo to cut the mask and dress, punched the shoes with a EK Success shoe puncch.  Still using my stash and trying hard not to add anything else!  I'm sharing this for the anything goes blog challenge for week #15 over at Scraps of Color.  I had a very hard time taking a picture of the LO, I think its time for a new camera or I need to stick to taking pictures during the day!
