Paper Flower Arrangement

I have a florist friend of mine and thought it would be nice to give her some flowers for Christmas. I made 12 flowers for this arrangement and decided not to use the bright red and greens. Thanks to my husband that he was able to figure out how to use the Bowdabra. I cut the Merry Christmas from my Cricut and attached it to a skewer. I am really pleased with how this came out.

Thanks for stopping by and BIG hugs to you all!

Breast Cancer Awareness Card

Back in October I saw this news report about this nurse that was receiving cards of hope for breast cancer patients. I wanted to participate in sending a card but unfortunately could not get mine completed until now. I contacted Nurse Mortl and she indicated to me that she was trying to keep this going all year and welcomed any card(s) I had and encouraged me to let my friends know. So if anyone is interested in making a card, please contact me and I will provide you with the mailing address. So here is the card I made.

Card Size 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Cartridge Used, Paisley (used the hide contour to hide the 2nd shoe)
Cardstock, scraps
Flower, from my stash
Gem, from my stash
Ribbon, scraps
Believe, Life's Little Occasions, K & Company
Stamp, sentiment inside, Hope Is, Stampin Up
Ink, Tuxedo black, Momento

Big Hugs to you all!

Scrapfest Projects

This past weekend I was able to attend our semi-annual Nassau County Scrapfest. These are always so much fun and the person who puts this together for us is totatlly AWESOME! Thanks Sheanice!

I had made myself a goal to complete at least 10 layouts, well I didn't make it. I got 7 completed. I think I visited just a little to much. So I just wanted to share with you what I got done. Enjoy!

This was the first layout I did and was from a recent trip to Disneys' Animal Kingdom.

At the Scrapfest we had a young lady working on a school project and asked us ladies to make a Christmas card for our military. Of course, everyone wanted to participated. Well I didn't have one piece of paper or sentiment for Christmas with me. But, I did have my Gypsy loaded with some Christmas cartridges. I came up with this and think it looks great.

This is my niece and thought she looks adorable. She loves to pose for the camera and she's only 5 years old. Anyway, even though I like this layout, I'm not in love with it.

Last but not least, more layouts of our Alaska cruise from May. We are still in Juneau.

Big Hugs to you all!

Anniversary Cards

Here are a couple of anniversary cards I made for my in-laws. My Mother and Father in-law and my Brother and Sister in-laws anniversaries are just a week apart, so I had to work quickly. I made their cards at a crop and did not jot down the details. Sorry about that. Big hugs to you all!

I know these aren't tradional looking Anniversary cards, but they are fun!

Wicked Wall Hanging

My niece just loves the play/book Wicked and anything Wizard of Oz. So for her birthday (which was October 27th), I decided to create a wall hanging of what she enjoys. It took a little time, but I believe it came out pretty good. She did love it.

Happy Fall

I don't know if it is officially Fall yet, but I got this tablecloth on sale for $8.99. I thought it was plastic, imagine my surprise when I took it out of the package and realized it was cloth. My Mom gave me the Fall leaves and I got my Florist friend to make me the bow and vola' my centerpiece for my dining room table. I just wanted to share. Have a great day and BIG hugs to you all.

More Alaska Cruise Layouts

Good Morning everyone. I went to a crop a couple of weeks ago and managed to get a couple more scrapbook pages completed from my Alaska cruise, back from May. Man I am behind. We are still in Juneau but we are at the Salmon Bake and along with the lunch, they also had campfires and marshmallows so here is my family enjoying the toasted marshmallows. I personally don't like them, but it was fun watching them.

Isn't that just the cutest campfire ever??? I used my Peachy Keens stamps to give it this cute personality.

Big Hugs to you all!
