Monday Musings


Where does the weekend go?  I can't seem to do all that I have in my mind to get done over the weekend before its time to come back to work.  I had originally planned to get myself organized and ready for this week's crop but that didn't happen which means I'll try to devote some time each day this week in hopes that I won't be stressing on Friday night!  I have decided I probably won't work on any projects this week just organize and make kits so I can make the best of my day!  I already have projects lined up for my blog this week.

Today I am sharing one of the cards that I put together for someone that suffered a loss last week, I used paper from a Momenta paper pad, some ribbon, a few gems and a stamped sentiment from Pink Bow Ties and the card was done!

Take care and have a Marvelous Monday!

Birthday Love



Hello Sunday and Happy Birthday to my sista friend Felisa!  You can check her craftiness out over  at  The Scrapin Diva, she is kind and has a wonderful spirit and I am so glad that we had the opportunity to meet on a scrapbooking cruise.  So today I am sharing the card that I put together to send her, nothing fancy from me "Queen of Simple" but it's the thought that counts!  The sketch inspiration came from Clean & Simple Stamping.  I used leftover paper from another project along with a cupcake stamp that I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers, Spellbinder dies and a sentiment stamp.

Take care and have a wonderful week.

Hello Friday


We made it, another Friday and the weekend has started or rather for me it will start around 5:30 when I leave work for the day.  I am sure I will be struggling to stay awake since I woke up at 2 AM and didn't go back to sleep until almost 5 AM and when I woke up and it was light outside I went into overdrive.  When I couldn't sleep I went downstairs to work on my last LOs for this month's challenge.

Today I am sharing another pocket style LO, I have several that I am hoping to finish soon.  I need to figure out a better way to take the pictures as the glare is horrible.   I originally scrapped the picture of the wives that attended the dinner in my Simply Beautiful post so this one include additional pictures.  The fraternity brothers with the white coats have been members for 50 years or more.

Take care and have wonderful weekend.

Sweet Sunday Sketch


It's Thursday and today I am sharing a card that I put together using inspiration from this week's sketch #279 over at Sweet Sunday Sketch.  I used some of the leftover paper from yesterday's LO along with a flower cut with my SLICE, buttons, a stamped sentiment and the card was done and it will be going postal soon!

I am winding down with my LO challenges for this month and I signed up for a crop next Saturday.  I will need to get some stuff together to work on at the crop so I don't waste too much time socializing! I need to get catch on my scripture journaling so I may just decide to work on it so I don't have to take a whole card load of stuff!

Take care and have a wonderful day!

Wednesday Wanderings - Ouch


Welcome to another edition of Wednesday Wanderings which is just a misc. rambling about something but not too much of anything!  This week is going by rather fast, I pick baby girl back up from volleyball camp tomorrow; overall I think it has been a good experience.  When she woke up yesterday she complained of  head and back aches.  I told her to just "tough it out" she would be fine although I immediately want to get in my car and drive there to try to take care of her!  I did ask DH if he thought she needed a foam pad on their mattress.

Let me say that today's LO is not one that is teen approved but because I usually share most of my daughter's LOs I decided to go ahead and share this one too. I'm not sure if I shared here on my blog but I did share on FB while I waited during the procedure.  This was one of those times when I sent dad in the room to be with her.  These pictures were taken last month during and after her "gum contouring" procedure. It was a quite painful experience, I still need to add the journaling; anyway she survived!

The rambling has gone on way too long, used items from my stash that included paper that I picked up on clearance at Tuesday Morning not too long ago, old stickers from the Paper Stack, cut the band-aid using the Indie Art cricut cartridge, Spellbinder die for the circle and Colorbok letters for the title.

Take care and have a Wonderful Wednesday.

Got Hair


Hello and happy Monday, the weekends go by way too fast!  I had to spend most of my time getting my daughter ready for her volleyball camp.  The LO today uses pictures taken of  her hair after a recent visit to see her stylist, she had to get something different because she was going to a water park and volleyball camp this week.  I used papers from a K&Co.  Specialty Pack, Thickers, stickers, buttons, washi tape and Prima flowers with brad centers.  Another LO done, still haven't figured out how I am going to document this week's volleyball camp!

Wishing you and yours a great week.

Sweet Sunday Sketch


Hello and happy Friday, I am back today to share a card that I put together using sketch #278 over at Sweet Sunday Sketch.  This is just my second time using one of their sketches but I like the clean and simple concept of the sketches and you just add any flair or fanfare  along with your interpretation of the sketch and your card is done.  The pattern paper came from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge 6x6 paper pad, the butterfly is from Recollections and the sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up.  I cut the little pennant with my cricut but looking at the picture maybe I should have used another color.

Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
