Another Mojo145 card-Square version

Well here is my square version of this weeks mojomonday, using Cosmo's Material Girl paper. I am in love with anything vintage right now. Anywho pretty straight forward -stamp(Simple Stiches) cardstock, buttons and hemp are CTMH, I also used my sewing machine, and SU scalloped border and circle punch, and I can not remember where the stick pin is from! I keep thinking practice makes perfect so I need to keep on truckin with my sewing so maybe someday I will get better at it! Well I am off for now my old neighbor Aubrey just called and she is going to be bringing her girls over to play and Elaina wants to get her tea party stuff out-oh don't ya just love girly stuff?

A day at the pond!

We spent our Sunday afternoon at the pond which is right behind my dad's house! The kid's of course were like fish and in the water the whole time. We cooked hotdogs and ribs on the fire and had salads and chips and even a chocolate cake to celebrate Owen's birthday. Oh and what do you think of my smiling baby Eli, he is 8 weeks old today and he is starting to do all that great fun stuff, the smiling and cooing I love it, and he has started sleeping through the night I love that too! Some times when I stop and just take in my life I am amazed at the goodness of God.

Enchanted Forest

So today me, my sister and my 2 oldest children went to Enchanted Forest an amusement/water park
about an hour away! Of course my camera is not so good at taking pictures (yes I am blaming my camera and not the photographer) so glad I ordered a new one! Anywhoo I did not get very many pictures but we had an enjoyable but exhausting time. I just wish I had decided not to ride on the Tilt-a-Whirl as it is now about 8 hrs later and I still have a headache and am nauseous I guess I am just to old for those fast moving machines! Have a great night I know I will sleep like a baby(as long as my baby sleeps like a baby).

SFYTT-Happy Hopper in the tub card

Okay, here is my take on this weeks SFYTT. The idea for the shower curtain was totally stolen from none other than Beate Johns from a card she made and posted on the MFT blog! I fell in love with the idea and knew I wanted to try it with this House Mouse/ Happy Hopper stamp. The paper is from Cosmo Cricuts Delovely collection, the image was colored with Copics, I also used Gelly Gems and Glitz Glitter Glue, a flower and Flower soft for the rug! You can click on the picture to see it better!

End of the year teacher gift & card

Well this is my daughter's last year in public school, next year I will begin homeshooling. It is somewhat bittersweet, I on one hand can not wait to start homeschooling but on the other hand I am sad I won't have an excuse for cute little teacher gifts! Oh well, for the 2nd year in a row we were blessed with a wonderful teacher and I am so thankful that Elaina will walk away from public school in just 2 weeks with some wonderful memories! Okay before I get too sappy, I found this cute little paint can at Michaels, right now all it has in it is a puffy thing you use in the shower, later I will add some country apple, all natural, locally handmade soap and a few other goodies, I will repost after it is all finished! I used CTMH cardstock and all the patterned paper is from October Afternoon(my newest obsession). Cranberry sparkles, buttons and hemp are from CTMH. The apple with the seeds on the paint can is a sticker from October Afternoon, and the other apples were cut using my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cart. The little ring hanging from the ribbon is the "can opener" I have a few more end of the year projects I will be working on and posting soon!
