Water Fun

Anther really fun page to make.  I cut the sun rays free hand from the Boy stack paper and lined the circle with cute buttons.  The font is from the boys will be boys cartridge.  The journaling is cut up into little squares.

Gatlinburg, TN

This was a fun page to make.  I used paper from the DCWV Green stack and cuts from the Boys will be Boys cartridge. 

Christmas Tree

I love pictures of the kids decorating the Christmas Tree.  I think they are the cutest!  On this layout I used the Hannah Montana font for the background letters (tree) and then cut the Christmas from the Christmas Noel cartridge.

I Believe in Santa

I have actually created a page similar to this one in the past.  I changed up the layout of the pictures and added a few die cuts from Christmas cheer and A Child's Year.  I used some red and green ribbon to stretch across the pages.  The title is cut from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge.

Boo Boo Lip

That is what we call this face.  We get it all the time from her.  I layered a bunch of papers (which I inked the edges of using Tim Holtz distress ink) to create this page and just did one simple cut from the Walk in my garden cartridge.  I topped it off with a button center and a short little handwritten jounaling/title.

Dolphin Tour

This page was just a very simple layout without much going on because I wanted to get a lot of pictures on there.  The flowers are from Oriental Trading and have a cute button in the middle.  The strip of paper in the middle is from DCWV Summer Dream stack.  I really love the bright colors against the white paper.  It is beginning to be one of my favorite things to do!

Dinosaur World

I made this page for my daughter's book, but will probably end up making another one for my son's book with different pictures.  I got a new cricut cartridge for Christmas and didn't have time to really use it until this past weekend.  I LOVE it.  It is called Boys Will be Boys, and you will see that I used it on a lot of my pages that I will be posting from this weekend's retreat.  The font and dino on this page were cut using that cartridge and the polka-dot paper in the background is green shiny dots and is soo cute! It is from the Me and My Big Ideas Boy stack (which I also used on almost every page I made this past weekend because it is so cute!). 

Homemade Jams and Pickled Peppers

We planted 2 jalapeno plants last spring.  We were OVERLOADED with jalapenos all summer long.  We probably picked 400+ peppers off those plants throughout the summer.  We gave bunches away, made some jalapeno poppers with a bunch of them, and then canned what we had left over.  We did some pickled peppers, relish, and pepper jelly with them.  

I was also able to pick a bunch of blueberries and wanted to make jelly with some of them.  While I was at it, I decided to make some strawberry and peach jelly.  I decorated the jars and handed them out to family members for tasty gifts.

Barn Star

I put together this star for my mom for her birthday this year.  I bought a tin barn star on clearance from Joann's and covered it with paper pieces and pictures of our family.  I finished it off with a coat of modge podge to hold it all together.

Cards, Cards, and More Cards!

I made these cards to send to my gram for her Christmas present this year.  Many of the ideas for the cards where found on different crafting websites, and some from magazines.  I am happy with how most of them turned out.  Most of them have cuts from various cricut cartridges on them.  If you are wondering which one, just ask and I will let you know!


Playing catch up!

So I haven't updated in a long time!  In the next few days I will be trying to get everything I have for and since Christmas (which is quite a bit)!  I just got home from a scrapbooking retreat and so I have a lot of pages to share with you all! Enjoy!
