Star Valley Temple Openhouse Layout

What a wonderful way to spend the day.  We grabbed Grandma and Grandpa and drove to see the Star Valley Temple openhouse.  It rained on the way there and home, but was just a little overcast while we were there.  So fun to see the stain glass picture of Christ that they bought from another church and installed in our temple.  It was absolutely stunning.   Wish I had a picture of that, but these will have to do.  Families are forever!  So grateful for mine! rainbow, 2 borders, layout something long 6 different papers anything but squares and rectangles yellow and aqua paper and brown inking on all of it feminine

Embossed Rose Card I ordered a bunch of the cheap embossing folders from China and I have to say, I love them.  They do a nice job and this one was only about $1.30.  It took a while to arrive, but it is so pretty.  I ordered like 15 of them so I just had to play with a couple since they just arrived.  Love how it looks on this card.  Hope you can see it.  The disadvantage of using my phone versus my camera but look close.  The white is embossed with the prettiest rose folder.  I think this one is my favorite out of all of them I ordered!  I love it! dry embossing AG feminine

Retreat Party Explosion Box


So I have never done an explosion box but they had the cutest birthday set over at Dreaming Tree that I just had to have!  One of files in the set was an explosion box.  Can I say, oh my goodness!  How absolutely fun and easy is this!!!!  I have a retreat coming up soon so I decided this was a good time to try to make this.  I hope she likes it.  I think I'll fill it with some kind of treats....chocolate maybe?  LOL.  Everyone loves chocolate right?  I think I'll make one of these for my daughter and put a gift card in it.  What teenager doesn't like money?   Now I need to make the cupcake gift box.  It is adorable also.  If it's as easy to work with as this file, I'm sold!  I love the balloons and party hat!  Doesn't this just scream party and have fun!  I LOVE it!

Summer Days Layout

With summer FINALLY arriving, I couldn't resist these cut little ants and watermelon because doesn't summer time scream watermelon?  Love these little guys!  Miss Kate's Cuttables files.  Super cute.  Not the best photo but I'm to lazy to go get my good camera so my phone will have to do!  LOL. picnic summer summer


Treat Gift Trio

Here is the whole set together.   My treat box trio. This will be day one of my secret sister gift at my scrapbooking retreat that I am going to.  I'm going to put some type of chocolate in the too.  I hope she likes it.  I think it turned out cute.  Two more gifts to go. think pink die cuts /punches linky anything goes

Fox Cards

My Scrap Chick had their dollar days the other day and I couldn't resist a couple of them!  I got this Fox set that had this little guy.  I still need to make the box but these cards were super cute.  I thought with the right sentiment, they could be used for anything.  Love that!  I think this little fox turned out cute.  Not sure I like the background papers so much, but the fox himself is adorable!
