Here’s a little something to get you in the fall mood 🙂 The layout is a digi  made using several of my  kits from ScrapbookMax, they have just updated the software to version 2.0 and it is waaaay cool! Some of the updates include: color picker, inverting of shapes, bendable text and so much more!!!! I am really loving the new features!

And the card  is just a fun 5×7 made using thye Sizzix Texturez plates, love that they can emboss larger than a 5×7 area!!!!!!!




The kids are all at school, fresh coffee is in hand, the house is fairly quiet….as quiet as can be with 2 dogs and three cats in attendance….lol. I am gearing up for a bowling birthday party on Sat. to be followed by a small sleepover later in the day….my youngest and three others……..eeek!! lol

I am taking her shopping for her birthday  gift after the bowling part of the party….and she’s asked if she can have a pedicure too so hopefully we can squeek that in on the way home, I took her for one about a 2 months ago and she is now hooked!! 🙂 Maybe I’ll snag a quick manicure while she get’s her tootsies tended to!

Here’s my latest layout as well…..a fun summer moment with her caught on camera!!!! I LOVE this layout, every once in a while I nail one that is truely me, truely my style that truely represents how I “SEE” things…..and this is one of them 🙂 🙂 She loves it too!!! 🙂           (… image to view larger…..)


My youngest daughter decided to have a bowling party for her birthday on this Sat. so I designed a bowling pin card svg file this afternoon and cut it with my Cricut, then used a Cricut cartridge for the “your invited” and the star ….these are sooooo cute….especially when you line them all up like they are on the alley… I used graphite Glimmer mist to give them a nice sparkle!! Which reminds me I want to get some Shimmerz Spritz to try, I want to compare it to Glimmer Mist…has anyone tried both? What is your opinion?




I really love mini albums, especially those created from the heart….with love…..for the heart…….this album is for my son who lost his popa when he was 9 and a half and he didn’t get to see much of him when the photos in the album stop…he’s now 24!!! .I hope he’s gonna like it 🙂

I found this yucky ucky brown spoon rack/shelf thing at the second hand store for 3.00 (looks like a homemade jobby with homemade slat type board on the back) but I knew the shelf sizes were perfect for a stamp shelf. I wanted some stamps out where I would see and use them….so I painted it with primer and white paint then I simply slapped some white glue on the back of some Collage Press pp and wrapped it around the “spoon hangar” sections in the middle!!! Total cost…about 6 or 7 dollars…lol I have about 71 wood mounted stamps on there in the photo…room for more!!! 🙂
Just need to get some drywall screws to hang the whole thing…lol

Here’s the before:


And here’s the after:
