Crazy Time




Well I have not posted alot lately but I have been working! Almost everything I have been doing is for Christmas gifts, so I don't want to spoil anybody's surprise! So after Christmas I'll have lot's to post! Oh and on Christmas Eve I'll have lot's of pictures of the kiddos from Church in their costumes! Also wanted to share an impromptu picturemy sister took the other night of all of us! It turned out pretty good considering she just said I'm taking your picture stand there!



Altered Wall hanging


My mother in law got me this very cool thing for Christmas but it had an Americana theme on it which is how I decorate my dining room but my poor walls have no space left! Then it hit me, alter it for your scrapbook room so I did. I used all CTMH products except for pearls and MS butterfly punch! Oh and the big bloom I ran through the cuttlebug! Hope you like it!

Snowman Soup



These are the bags of snowman soup I made for Elaina's class! They are okay but I wish I would have had time to color in the snowmen and do something a little fancier, but surprise, surprise I ran out of time!

Place Cards


These are my Thanksgiving Day place cards, there will be 20 people at my house for dinner, I can not wait for all that yummy food! All products are CTMH except for the scalloped and scalloped circle punch which are SU. This year as every year there is so very much to be thankful for. First and foremost my salvation, and then my dear sweet husband, my children, friends and family, our home, I could go on for hours but you get the point! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and don't forget to count your blessings!

Card redo


Okay here is the card changed up a little! I think I like it better!

Thinking of you card

This is a card I made for a friend! Black and Colonial white cardstock, bitty sparkles, and sentiment stamp are all CTMH, gold & bronze paper, vellum, ribbon, and pearls are from Michaels. Also used my cuttlebug and nestabilities and MS butterfly punch! Looking at it on here I think I might go back and add some gold brads on each corner piece above and below the corner punches what do you think?

Elaina and her Owl jammies


Elaina was very seriously working on writing her alphabet before school this morning! I just love her in these jammies!

Boom Boom

My third child Owen how he got the name boom boom is beyond me but that's what every one calls him! He is my naughtiest child by far but look how cute and innocent he looks!

Wally World Winter Stamps


I got this super cute little hedgehog stamp set from wal-mart after my friend Angie showed me hers. I used silver glitter paper from Michael's, black and white textured cardstock from CTMH, and flocked patterned paper from Heidi Grace designs, MS snowflake punch, nestabilities, CTMH sparkles, and CTMH ribbon and Ink. I colored in the hedgehogs with CTMH water colored pencils and blending pen and there is liquid applique and glitter on top of the mug so hopefully it will look like hot cocoa!
