Bunny Valentine Card


Here's a cute little card made with a KaDoodle Bug Designs bunny.  I like him especially with the Peachy Keen Face.  Who says bunnies can't be for Valentine's Day?  So much fun!  This little bunny is adorable.  Next time, I will cut him a little bigger but....that's ok.  He looks fine right where he is.

Love You Valentine Card


After making some cards this year, I had a pile of "left overs" as usual.  So I dug out this scalloped circle leftover from last year and used these leftover cuts to make one more card.  Considering it was a bunch of misfit cuts, I don't think it turned out too bad!  LOL.  Love it when that happens.

Mine Craft Birthday Cake


My son loves Mine Craft like all kids his age so I tried to find a birthday cake that was Mine Craft.  Well, no one does one.  That won't work so here's my version of a Mine Craft birthday cake my way.  LOL.  He loved it and my Mom liked it so much she asked me to make some for my niece's son too.  Both boys were happy with their cake and so was this Momma. (I should have taken the picture with out the knives in the background so you could see the "layers" of mincraft items but.....)  Anyway, you get the gist anyway!

Valentine's Zebra Box Card



I made this fun little box card for my Grandmother who is 97 this year.  I've wanted to try one of these for a while now and so I decided to give it a try.  It was a lot of fun.  Now it can sit on her table to let her know that she is loved on this Valentine's Day.

Lights Layout



Here's another Christmas layout from 2013.  Every year we take an evening to drive around and see the Christmas lights.  This year was so exception.  The girls even got out and wanted their picture with Mr. and Mrs. Claus!  Silly girls.  Love traditions!

New Car Layout - Project Life My Way



Here's another Project Life My Way layout.  I bought this car two years ago and a couple months after I bought it, a lady backed into me and smashed my door.  I was so sad...thankfully the autobody shop did a wonderful job and my car looks great again.  To make it even better, my husband scheduled it a visit to a detail shop where they tinted my windows and added a spoiler!  Love it and my sweet hubby for making a bad situation better.

Homemade Bows






Ok, so you just gotta love creative.  If you know me, you know I always say I'm not creative on my own, but I copy well.  Well, here's another example of that.  I was sitting here the other night trying to get a news reader going.... haven't had one since google reader closed and I missed the ease of seeing all the cute projects created by everyone so I finally broke down and was trying to find one I liked.  Not sure if I'm there yet, but I did find one and imported all my old feeds into and stumbled across a post from a blog called "Older and Wiser."  I love that blog.  She uses all kinds of things to decorate her work and home.  Things that I would have never thought to use.  Well, she had the CUTEST darn bows on her blog made out of old newspaper....really?   Hmmmmmm....I just happen to have some of that down in my basement so off I went to find it.  She had also used an add to make a scrunchy bow.  Sitting next to me happened to be a fabric store ad so I just had to give that a try too.  Well and if that wasn't enough, my mind started running about all the cute projects I was making for my daughter's birthday party and thought....hey I have leftover paper from her birthday banner....bet that would make cute bows so....there you have it.  A lengthy story of why I have newspaper, add, and matching birthday bows.  You should have seen my husband when I started cutting up the newspaper, he said, "What are you doing?"  LOL.  Good thing he loves me right!
