10K Ready

Today's LO will be included in DD's school album, it uses pictures taken just before they were about to participate in last month's 10k.  We were so proud of her as it was her first time participating in  a 10k and it rained; she really doesn't care for the outdoors!

The inpsiration for the LO came from the Desk to Done challenge #30 hosted by Tiare from Embrace Your Art.  I really wanted some running themed paper but I didn't have any and I couldn't find any at the three stores where I looked so I settled on some Get Your Game on Paper from Little Yellow Bicylce.  Even though this is another simple LO I used four different machines to cut the embellishments and lettering.  The stars are EK Success stickers and the bling Jolee's; which is an EK Success brand (something I recently learned).

Happy Easter

Today is Friday and I'm doing the happy dance because this I'm looking forward to just a litle bit of down time.  So much has been happening and the next two weeks my schedule is jam packed so I need to regroup so I'll be ready.

I'm sharing some simple Easter cards that I put together for the kids, I really don't like making cards so I think that's one reason I don't make it a priority.  Even though I don't like making cards I really wanted to get some Easter cards done since I didn't send out any Christmas cards.  Oh well maybe one day when I'm more organized.

I cut the bunnies with my cameo, added some glimmer mist, a few gemstones, ribbon and some opal white pearl accent for one of the tails.  The pattern paper is from the DCWV Year Round Stack.  I am also happy to report that I've stepped out of my zone and used two additional features with my cameo, shadowing and the print and cut feature. 

Over at Scraps of Color  this week's blog challenge is a baby or Easter themed project. Wishing you and yours a blessed Easter!

Little Ladies



It has been way too long since I have shared on my blog, life has just been way too busy.  Today's LO is one that I started while I was off on Tuesday and finished last night.  The LO uses pictures taken of our daughter  and some of her school mates as they were heading to a banquet and masquerade gala.  They were in Virginia Beach attending/competing in the Students Taking Action with Recognition state conference for FCCLA.  She did a project on bullying and was recognized with a bronze medal.

I used my cameo to cut the mask and dress, punched the shoes with a EK Success shoe puncch.  Still using my stash and trying hard not to add anything else!  I'm sharing this for the anything goes blog challenge for week #15 over at Scraps of Color.  I had a very hard time taking a picture of the LO, I think its time for a new camera or I need to stick to taking pictures during the day!

Sisters

As March comes to an end so does the recognition of Women's History Month so I am sharing this LO.   This is the last picture of me and my two sisters, I wish I hadn't been in such a rotten mood.  I really hate taking pictures and most times it shows on my face.  If I had any idea that I would never be able to pose or take another picture with my oldest sister I would have embraced that moment.  As much as I try to step out of my comfort zone I always go back to the less is better.  The LO uses the contents of a fle I bought from the silhouette online store.  I just need to add the journaling, I am sharing this LO for blog challenge number 13 over at Scraps of Color.  All cuts were done with the cameo using items from my stash.

Smash Book

Today I'm sharing my rendition of a "Throwback Thursday' here on my blog!  I always have way too much going on and even more unfinished projects.  Several years ago in an effort to get my daughter to scapbook I got her a smash book and she said she'd add stuff to it.  Well she did do a few pages but she grew tired and decided that wasn't for either.  So that left me to work on it, I have my own smash books that need some attention!  So today's smash book LO is of our daughter's 11th birthday celebration.  I can't believe how much she's grown up when you look at her 13th birthday picture posted just last week!  Gone are those carefree days of pigtails and simple fun!

Smile

Today's simple card is one that I started while I was away for the weekend but for some reason never put it all together.  I'm sharing this card for week #11 blog challenge over at Scraps of Color.  This challenge was to create a project using animal print.  The sketch inspiration for this card comes from sketch #284 over at Clean & Simple Stamping.  I struggled with the title and embellishements for this card since I had limited supplies with me, I used my SLICE to cut the sentiment.  The hint of red was a suggestion from Sharon, the coloring is a little off for the little wooden embellishments.  I've got to get on the ball because my cards are stacking up and not making it to the post office.  Last full day of Winter, come on Spring!

Happy 13th

Wow it has been a few days since I've shard on my blog, I've been busy having fun and now trying to settle back into the daily grind of life.  Today I'm sharing the only LO that I finshed while I was on my mini retreat.  I guess I finished it because I had actually started it before I left!  The LO uses pictures that I took of our baby girl as we were heading out to school last month on her birthday.  The paper and the embellishments have been in my stash for sometime with the exception of the butterfly.   I received the butterfly in a package that I received from Princess for participating in her Black History Bingo Challenge.  The titling was cut with the cameo.  We had  overnight freezing rain so the kids have a two hour school delay this morning have having all day yesterday out due to inclement weather.  We're looking forward to Spring, be safe and have a great day.
