16oz Insulated Travel Mug with Lid.

Good Afternoon Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

School is back in and summer is slowly winding down.  It has been awhile since my last post.  There has been a lot happening but I have been creating.  This past weekend, I worked on these cups.  It has been a month since I last used vinyl and my little pick wanted some craft time.  WOW, Can you believe tomorrow is September 1?  Don't even mention how close Christmas is.

Thank you all for stopping by.

Cards, Cards and More Cards

Good Morning All,

For the past month, I have been working on projects that I haven't been able to share.  Now, I can pull the cover off and release them, lol!!!  My son is running for King, in a church pageant and I wanted to make something I could sell to help him raise money.  I was seeing giftbags all over Facebook, so I decided to give it a try.  More than just a bag, I added cards to them, so they could be sold as a set.  Some of my cards are Pinterest inspirted.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mini Album Monday Travel Album

Good Evening All,

I tried to get this posted before departure but it was too much going on.  My daughter and I (along with a few classmates) just returned from a 10 day European education tour.  We spent time in London, Paris and Barcelona.  There were pros and cons with each country but I enjoyed myself regardless.

My daughter did a video blog for the first few days but it tapered off because she was too sleepy at night to keep it going.  All we need is to print pictures, add journaling and this album is complete!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Spy Themed Party

Good Morning All,

Another school year is coming to a close and both of my children have projects on top of projects to complete.  The project below is for a Language Arts class.  My 5th grader had to create a party based on a Spy Kids book.  The assignment called for an invite, guest list, dialogue written out, food and music.  He searched online for ideas and this is the final project.

Thanks for stopping by.  Stay tuned for another Mini Album Monday.

Mini Album Monday...Episode 1

Good Evening All,

Welcome to the first episode of Mini Album Monday.  I love mini albums and they are another favorite next to party favors.  I am all about capturing those Kodak moments and putting them paper.  I'm always behind so I always have something to remember.

This week, I finished my first Kathy Orta (of Paper Phenomenon) Foto Folio.  This came with a lot of bumps and bruises but I liked my condensed version and my sister, LOVED IT, when she got it in her hands yesterday.

Enjoy the video!  If you have any questions, ask away.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mother's Day Celebration

Good Afternoon Everyone,

You have seen me write this before BUT I just love favors.  I love an event where I walk away with a little reminder of what I experienced.  Each year, at church, we have a Mother/Daughter Prayer Breakfast.  This year, I wanted to make something special to encourage the ladies on their daily journey.  It came down to 2 choices and the decision was decided based on the fact that this favor could double as the program.  It was a lot of work, but I enjoyed it.  The bags were used as door prizes.

Quotes are from the Silhouette Store

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a GREAT week!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!!

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers & Fellow Crafters,

This week has been designated as teacher appreciation week!  Our hard working teachers deserve more than a round of applause and standing ovation.  They have a touch job managing 30 personalities on a daily basis, while trying to teach the curriculum.  I look forward to coming up with something special each year.

Hope You're Feeling Better

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

My sinuses had me under last week.  I've been miserable in between still trying to maintain my normal duties. I took to my idea catalog and came across a get well card.  I heard so many 'get well' thoughts that I had to make these cute cards.

The box is a file purchased from the Silhouette Store.  It took me 45 minutes to reconstruct it so it wasn't sticking too far off the card.  I love how they turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!

EMPIRE Takeover Challenge

Good Evening Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

I am having fun over at Scraps of Color.  So many of us were glued to our TVs watching Empire, week after week.  The talented Robert Jackson, decided it didn't have to end.  Each week, we receive a character from the show, if we completed the previous week.  Here are my first 3 entries.

Challenge #1 Anika - Red lips a must and card should be elegant with some pearls or diamonds.

Challenge #2  Andre - Must use a die cut and use an inspirational or encouraging sentiment on the front of the project.

Challenge #3 Hakeem - Must have some gold and some  form of a music note rather a die cut or patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT week!
