Sundae Treat Box


I am going to a scrapbook retreat in about a month and we do a secret sister exchange.  I decided I'd better get started because I have a lot coming up in the next month also.  So I decided to take one of the caddy essentials boxes from a collection from My Scrap Chick and make this cute little box.  The I used a cute sundae file from KaDoodle Bug Designs to make the cute little sundae.  I think it turned out cute.  I'm going to make a card and also one of those Sundae's made with a cup, loofa, and straw to go with it.  Maybe some chocolates to go in the box.  This lady is new to our group so I've never met her before.  Here's to hoping she likes it!  Here's a couple challenges to enter it into also.

Girl Sun Burst Card


I won some files from Too Cute by Jessica and loved these little girls.  This is actually a cancer set, however, I just changed the color she is wearing and she becomes just a girl.  I decided to make these the other day along with  4 of these cards.  So I decided to put her on one of them and I think she looks cute!  I like having extra cards around so that I can quickly give one for whatever reason.  I think someone will like her!

Make a Wish Layout


I always have TONS of birthday pictures and since they take a lot of time, I often have several years at a time waiting to be done.  Since I recently got my Cameo, I decided to try print and cut.  These cute little monkeys are a set from Little Scraps of Heaven that I have had for some time and never got around to making.  Well, I decided to do some print and cuts and knock some of these birthday layouts into the books.  LOL.  So here are those cute little monkeys on a layout.  My son wanted to go to the gun store and shoot this 50 caliber at $20 per 2 shots.  He LOVED it.  I was behind him when he shot it and no one prepared me for the blast I would receive just from being near it!  LOL.  After this, we took off to the range where we shot the uglies zombie targets I have ever seen, but once again, it was a fun time for my son!

July 4th Parade Layouts



Aren't these cute little froggies adorable!  I just knew they needed to go on a 4th of July layout or two.  LOL.  They are Kristi W. Designs files and oh so cute.  I even did them as a print and cut.  Lovin' them!  Thought I would enter it into a red white and blue challenge with some green of course for those cute little frogs!  LOL.  


School Notebook Makeover

 Here's a remake on a little notebook.  The worm and books are from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  I think he makes a cute little addition to this notebook.

Sunshine Layout

Just a couple quick pictures of my kids hanging out at a local lake.  What fun summer fun.  One of my favorite summer things to do is play in the water.  I love the heat, the sand, the water.  Summer is my favorite season!  I decided to try some more print and cut.  Love how quick it comes together!  Sometimes for these oddball pictures that I never get around to, this might just be the perfect answer. Gets them done and in the book.  Have to love that.  These files are from Miss Kate's Cuttables.

Jolly Holidays Layout



They are doing a Christmas in July challenge and so I decided to join.  For Christmas a few years ago (yes, I know I am behind) I did 12 days of Christmas for my hubby.  It was fun.  I decorated his car, gave him homemade treats, cards, gifts etc.  It was a fun way to make sure he felt special in the hustle and bustle of the season.  He loved it so much the next year we decided to do it for his brother who had recently gotten divorced and who was alone for Christmas.  I ended up doing it for my hubby too as they have similar interests so it was fun to do it for both of them.  It takes a lot of planning in advance because December is just too busy to try to do it last minute with everything else going on, but they both loved it.  It's been a couple of years....maybe I should do it again this year.
