Celebrating Everyday

Image
Good evening, I pray everyone is doing okay. I had to do a mad dash to get a card in the mail for one of my sister in laws birthday. I just love a simple card and this one is from a sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, my sister in law loves owls so I used my cricut to do a print and cut then pulled out some old K & Company paper pad. Stamp is from Hero Arts and this card has gone postal

Weekend fun

Image
Hello, lets talk about the weekend. I had so much fun with the virtual crop online with Creative Memories I really enjoyed scraping in my messy room just wish I could get it all organized and ready to really go hard and scrap. Hopefully this week. Well the first challenge Friday night was a two page spread and I pulled out some old kits in my stash and boy I tell you it is really sad all the kits that are just waiting to come alive with pictures 


The second challenge was a nice quick layout as well as you can see I am a simple scrapper I don't like spending to much time on a layout so these quick challenges are right up my alley. 

 The third challenge was a card with layers so I pulled out some vellum and I think it turned out okay
Saturday morning the challenge kicked out at 9 so I couldn't make the first challenge since my grand daughter Sunny had a game and Nana was there to cheer her own.


When I got home it was 30 min before the 2nd challenge ended so I made that one right…

About yesterday

Image
Yesterday was a terrible day first started out with me going to my doctors appointment late and they wanted me to reschedule when I was within the 15 min window so I told her I will find another doctor. Which I did and he got me in today. So after that I was so depressed I went and took me a noon nap didn't get up til it was time for hubby to come home then I went outside and started weeding the yard then I went to my little outdoor prayer room and relaxed.




I really love my get away spot. I have it all screened in and a ceiling fan....


then after dinner I went to my unorganized craft room and made some covers for my machines. At one time I wanted to make me a skirt out of this material but that never happened so now I have it to keep the dust out of the machines. Hopefully this weekend I will finish my room where I can really craft and create

I am Ready

Good afternoon, here is a picture I took back in 2016 when I was going hard to lose weight and it paid off. I went down to 128 unfortunate that isn't the weight for today or yesterday lol. I am determine to get back to that weight I have got back on my treadmill and bike daily along with weight lifting. It is always nice to look back and see how far you have came or have far you have falling so for me time to get back on the horse and make it happen again. I used Sketch`N~scrap sketch for the layout and I used colorbox Signature pad from my stasch along with stickers I dumped on the table waiting to be put up in its new place.

Sparkle

Good chilly morning, last night I wanted to craft even in this mess of a room but I pulled up Stick it down sketch and played with this layout.  I pulled out another kit in my stash from Cosmo Cricket Summer Love I purchased a long while back from Tuesday Morning. The Sparkle word was also from TM. Hubby had just bought me some new Pandora charms for my bracelet and I loved it (I love being spoiled but who doesn't) it was one of those gifts for just because :)

Tuesday Morning

Image
Hello, I am trying to get back to crafting but my room is still a hot mess. I emptied 33 medium boxes on my floor to organize and put up. I will see if I still have the photos to show you. But today I am showing you a quick card I made for the FB group creative card angels for a lady that should have been postal but it is done now. I used the sketch from over at Tuesday Morning Sketches and an Ali Express die that I had for a minute in my stash. I think this is a stampin up die for the sentiment along with the dollar tree paper pack.

First Project in my new space

Image
Good morning, I pray everyone has enjoyed this 3 day holiday weekend, I know I have. My sister came up from TX and my cousin and her daughter came up to help me unpack and put up boxes. I am so thankful for family. Well my cousin purchased her a new suv this week and I was like we have to put something on it. She googled and found this image Blessed and I cut it out....love how it came out So I will be cutting another one for my walls since I am truely blessed


Then yesterday my cousin was telling me about one of her co workers how she has a gallon of water on her desk with a marker pen with the ozs of water she needs to drink. So I pulled out the computer and found an svg online and purchased it for $3 because my cousin and I bought these cups last year at Walmart and we have bought been slacking on our water intake so this is a great reminder and on mine I thought it was to big so I made her's a little smaller

Potty Time

Image
Good morning, I finished this layout the other night but since this is my last day of my NC craftroom I better go ahead and post for I forget. I used the sketch from sketch~n~scrap. This is one of my grand daughters we were over my other daughters house and she went and pulled out her cousin under pants and put them on and that look she gave me. I called her mother and told her she is so ready to be potty trained. When we left I went straight to WalMart and bought her a pink potty. I put up my paper but I can't think which stack this came out of. 


now look at this face can't you see the look of I know what I am doing but I am going to keep playing crazy lol



Be Bless not sure how long it will be before I can post again when my craft room will be ready when we drive back to Oklahoma tomorrow

Sunny Girl

Hello crafters, today I made this cute little card for one of my vanilla grand daughters Sunny who have a birthday on Friday and this will be going postal in the morning. I used Photoplay Party Girl for my paper and I went to Dollar Tree and purchased some of that wall art and it had the shopkins which Sonny loves. I used one for the inside as well. I used the sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap.

Hello, I have another quick layout of my youngest grand daughter at before her birthday party. I used the sketch layout over at sketch~n~scrap. Her mother and me love purple so why shouldn't lil mommy be the same. So I had to make this layout with the purple  sheets I got awhile back from Lawn Fawn and guess what the other half I will have to use it for me :D


This face here....she is the sweatiest out of my 7 grand kids. She never cries only when she is hungry and bed time she just go right to sleep. I will keep this one any time. 

Looking for Nana

Here is a layout of one of my grand daughters staring out the window looking for me lol.....or maybe just wanting to get out of the house and play. I used an old 12X12  pack to make this layout. I am swearing off on buying any more 12x12 pads for now way to many 
I used the sketch from Sketch~n~scrap

Me

Good day long time no post well I am still packing up so I am just using things around my desk to keep me going. I wanted to do a layout so I used Stick It Down sketch to get started last night. My girlfriend Treva and I was going to google chat last night but we didn't so I still went ahead and scrapped a few layouts then after that I broke down all my cubes in my scrap room. Today my goal is to put all of them out in the garage so I will be working the steps this evening lol. I started out with this layout using a kit that I took last weekend to the crop called On the Bright Side from My Minds Eye. The die cuts are just on my desk.....quick layout done and documented over my flea market finds of sun glasses and afro pick earrings.

Good morning, today I am sharing a layout of my other grand daughter riding her bike. I am still using that kit from yesterday. I love those kits from Hobby Lobby they have everything you need in it to do a layout. I used another sketch from Sketch~n~Scrap (as you can see that is my favorite scrap sketches) Hopefully when we get in our new place I can work on the light for my pictures.

Hello, I am  having crafting withdrawals with this move thank goodness I brought a few things with me. I looked at sketch~n~scrap layout for July and love it. I made the last two layouts last Sunday just forgot to post them.
I went to Hobby Lobby and say this kit on clearance and I knew since I have the grand daughters it would come in handy. 







I used We R memory keepers Noteable to make these two layouts sorry no pictures with me for this layout.
