Enjoy and have a super spectacular Halloween!!!

Bugs and Kisses

Good morning everyone...
I have just a sweet little card to share with an image from Tiddly Inks called bugs and kisses. I picked this one up a while back and it's been sitting on my craft desk just waiting for me. I decided today was the special day it was going to make it to it's final destination.
I kept it pretty simple, not really my intention, but after I added the ribbon, it just looked complete to me. I guess certain cards just need to stay that way in my mind :)
Enjoy and have a wonderful day!

Give Thanks

Hello everyone!
Well, I must say it doesn't really feel much like fall outside today since it's going to be a rare 80* later this afternoon but I found these adorable embellishments at the store the other day and couldn't wait to dig in. I loved the look on this little girls face and she couldn't be more ready to give thank! I used just a regular 6x6 fall pack by imaginisce and some extra bling of course :)
Enjoy your afternoon and any beautiful weather you have left where you are..unless it's nice and warm where you are, you make me jealous!!!

Embrace 3x3 mini album

Hi again everyone!
I finished another project tonight!
My friend Jacque shared a tutorial on these cute 3x3 mini albums she made and I figured I just had to try it! It looked pretty easy, and yes it was, but somehow these quick projects somehow take me more time to think and gather supplies so it takes me just a little longer than planned!
I used some old TAC paper for this one, looked like a perfect fit! I think I may take another stab at this one but get it straight in my head first :)
Have a wonderful day everyone..I am watching my sweet grandbabies tomorrow, so hopefully I can squeeze in a little crafty time too!

Here is the tutorial I used

Climb a Tree

Monday has been quite productive for me today! With both mommies having their babies, I have had quite a bit of time to just explore all of the treasures calling my name :)
I used one of Taylored expressions stamps "up a tree" and some cosmo cricket paper. I love the sentiment stamp too! I also added a little embossing to the tree to give it a little extra pop. I think everyone should be inpressed..not one touch of glitter added..that was really hard for me, but I did it!!!!
Have a great rest of the day..I am going to go find something else fun to make <3>

Paper journal

Happy Monday everyone!
I have had a lot of fun this weekend trying to get into my craft mode! I found this great tutorial a couple months ago and have been wanting to try it. I finally sat down and finished a few projects. One is the super fun journal made from 3 sheets of 12x12 papers. I loved the beautiful print on this Bo Bunny paper and knew it would be the perfect paper to use for the journal! Best of all, it's a project you can sit down and finish in one sitting :)
Here is the tutorial I used..I hope you get a chance to try!

Create a scene and sad goodbye

Hello everyone,
I hope everyone is doing well. Over at the Squiggles headquarters we are showing off some of our final submissions as design team members there. I have been saddened that with many hard decisions in life, my dear friend must close her doors to her squiggle stamps site. Not only has it been a privalage to design with her stamps, but to get to know her and the whole team this year has been a blessing in my life. Many things come along in life and we have to make changes and I with her the very best with her new adventures. My heart will always be with you!
You can still stop by the store and grab a few items before time runs out.

Well, being a new month, I have decided I must take better care of my blog. It's one of those things that have grown dear to my heart and I love sharing all of my work with everyone. I have actually been working on a lot of projects, but somehow they just haven't made it over, I am going to change that and make sure I share with everyone once again.
Today's little goodie to share is a digi stamp from the paper shelter. I only have a few of far, but aren't they just darling? At first I thought it was missing a bit of something and I couldn't figure it out, but it really is growing on my now and I really love it, I hope you do too!!!
