Fall in Love -- featuring My Minds Eye :)

Hi all :) 

I wanted to share a layout I made for the latest challenge at The Memory Nest :)


I used My Minds Eye "Fine and Dandy" collection and how could I NOT use this collection on a layout about my fur baby DANDY?!?!?!?!?! :)  

The Memory Nest's challenge was a sketch and to use a quote in a subway art print ... I chose "Fall in Love" ... as I just love my baby Dandy :)









 Here is their sketch and subway art print I used :)

Live, Laugh, Love --- featuring Lily Bee :)

Hi everyone :)

I have been sooooooooo busy this week!! We are way behind at work, and by Wednesday night, I had already put in over 34 hours!!  11 1/2 hour days!

So I haven't had any time to create this week, so I found this in photo folders and realized I hadn't shared it here yet :)
 

I altered an embroidery hoop using some Lily Bee goodies :) 

I used Lily Bee's twine to hand stitch the sentiment on here :) 











Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Starbucks with a side of Sass -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone! :) 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter :) 

I wanted to share a layout today that I made this weekend for the latest Stuck On U Sketches challenge :) 

This was their Die Cut challenge -- Anything "Spring" challenge :) 


I took a bunch of older Bella Blvd. papers from their Socialite, Sophisticates, Tail Waggers & Cat Naps, Family Dynamix, Hello Beautiful, Finally Fall and Plastino collections and made a TON of butterflies (even used one the negative butterfly strips as a mask around the edges) -- and added some Bella Blvd. feathers, crochet hearts and flowers on my layout :) 









And I wanted to share some photos from Easter :) 

Brookie woke at crack-o-dawn and I made her wait till at least 6:30 to wake her Daddy so she could open her basket :) 

(Adam slept till 10 .. so no photos of him opening his! LOL! Oy .. to be 17 again!! LOL!) 





Then after Brookie got dressed -- we took some photos of her in her Easter dress :) 




(and no ... I didn't make the headband .. lol) 






And the last one I want to share is my monthly photo with my babies in honor of Aleida :)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Hi everyone!!!

Happy Easter! I hope you all have a wonderful one!! :) 

I wanted to share a layout and a couple of cards I made for some challenges yesterday :) 

The first one is my layout that I made for the latest sketch challenge at Colorful Creations :) 


I used Bella Blvd.'s Snapshots collection that I got from Frosted Designs :)  I also used Bella Blvd. feathers and their decorative tapes :)

And the cards I want to share today are for the latest challenge at SRM Stickers :)

Their challenge is all about celebration! :) 


I used Farmhouse papers on my cards :)

I made a graduation card for my best friend's son -- we are actually having them both over for Easter dinner and as a surprise we have decorated the house in his school colors for a pre-graduation party for him :)   

The "14" is for the year he graduates :) 




And the inside of the card :) 



And the next card I made is for Brookie's teacher -- Teacher Appreciation Day is May 7th -- so I made this one as a thank you for all that she does :) 



And the inside of her card :) 




And before I head out -- I wanted to share a photo of ME in 1976 on Easter morning and a photo of Brookie in 2011 on Christmas morning :) 

I have always said Brookie is my twin :)
