Happy Birthday Ms. Karen!!!!

My girlfriend Karen was a HUGE, Michael Jackson fan. The minute I saw this cutfile, courtesy of Craftin' Curt, I knew what to do. May this Birthday, knock you off your feet!

Time for S-C-H-OO-L!!!

Playing catch up in the land of scrapping. Pics of the small, handsome young man in my life. The Preschool Years.

Picture Frame

Happy Monday Crafters!!!

How many Wooden Frames do you have around the house? Are they collecting dust because they are not exactly what you need? If you could change the color, look, and feel would it be perfect in that space? Well, you can!! Below is a wooden photo frame altered using the following:

1) Wooden Frame from Michaels $1 spot
2) Cuttlebug 'Swirls' folder (yellow background)
3) Stickles
4) Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge (Grass w/flowers)
5) Stand & Salute Cartridge (Clouds)
6) Calligraphy Cartridge(Title)
7) George & Basic Shapes Cartridge (Heart)

Valentine Book w/Music

Sorry for the delay but the snow had my secret element held hostage at the Post Office. Hubby really enjoyed his Valentine book. I was so excited to give it to him. Today, I was able to add Music to the pages. Disclaimer: I'm a little rusty. :-) Check out the video:

On The Wings of Love

I hope Valentines Day with your loved ones was special. Here are two cards I made to celebrate. The first is a challenge issued by Platinum Scraps. The second was created based on the Animal Kingdom Cricut Cartridge.

Paper - CTMH That's Amore Collection
Carts Used - Hannah Montana (Butterfly) and Graphically Speaking (frame)
Text - Curlz MT (MS Word)

This card is the example found in the Animal Kingdom Cartridge Handbook.

Love Is In The Air

The Season of Love is upon us, and if truth be told, it should always be the season of love when you have someone special in your life. Whether it is friends, family, spouse, or any other loved one. My husband always sees me scrapping away for everyone else so this year, I decided it is past time to actually make something for him. So, this book below is his Valentine Gift. If you know him, ssshhhhhh!!! Mums the word because he's not supposed to see it until we go away on our Married Couples Retreat this weekend. Oh, be sure to check back in later on this week because I plan on adding a video of this book with a surprise.

Also, be sure to hop on over to Platinum Scraps to see what creative projects the other designers have done for our Valentine Week Free For All.
