iClassygirl and Scraps of Color

Image
Today I am using this layout for iClassygirl and Scraps of Color
















This is what I came up with. I am not 100% on it but it is another challenge complete right.
The background paper is Studio Calico and I thought since the challenge on SOC is - My Black is Beautiful!  My Black is my HOOD!  City, suburbs, country, cornfields. It's either were you are or where you call home/grew up.  However, you define it is your 'hood.   This is about your neighborhood and where you live.  This challenge is about sharing your beautiful 'hood!  The first picture is of my mother and sister and me. This is where my love of hats come from as a little girl I would get a hat and cherish it. The bottom picture is take in my grandmother's house which was my second home growing up. Oh how I miss my mother and grandmother.
I used the wood verner from Diane and put glossy accent on it but it buckled but it is okay and then I added a wood heart from Studio Calico and used red bic pen. The sti…

Gypsy Challenge

Image
I was watching a video tonight from She's a Sassy Lady Her challenge was to weld 3 pieces together to form some type of design and you will make a shadow. Well as usual I didn't pay full attention to the details so I will have to do another card tomorrow for her challenge. I haven't used my gypsy in in so long I forgot how to weld and it took me a little bit to get it together. One of my grand daughters (Sunny) will be turning 2 in a couple of weeks so this card will be perfect for her.


 I will be back tomorrow to do this challenge the right way

Smash it

Image
I got a few pages smashed this week so many more pictures to go....mojo please stay with me

I started taking class for my Sewing, Embroidery and Quilting machine - Pfaff Creative 4.0 and yes I call her the Beast. This thing has so much packed in it and like all things it has a learning curve but I am so happy to take the classes where I purchased it at. I can't wait to really get into the advanced classes :)
OMG I just love love love my Braum's ice cream and when I am having a bad day only a double scoop will work.

Hubby and I were in Dallas and I found it strange to believe as much as I have been to Dallas in my adult life I have never went to the place were JFK was killed. There were several men like panhandlers selling newspapers over JFK and telling the story and the guy that gave us the history was very informative. I so glad that hubby and I went down and experienced it.

iClassygirl card

Image
Last night I went in my room and knocked this simple card out from this sketch from iClassygirl
  and this is what I came up with. I used Crate Paper Random and some ribbon from my stash and the little embellishments is from Making Memories that I purchased so long ago.


Then I got out the cameo and made a gift card holder out of paper from Hobby Lobby and Bazzil cardstock for the Thanks then I added want to scrap pears to finish it up


Last I made a card for my sister just to say thanks for the past weekend in Fort Worth with the Advocare family. I also made this card on the cameo if I had to do it over again I would have revered the paper and cardstock but it is done now. Again paper from my stash from HL. and want to scrap black pearls then a butterful my wonderful scrappy sister Teresa - gave me in a RAK.


ADVOCARE

My my my what a time I had this past weekend in Fort Worth Texas at the Advocare success school. What I love about this company and people is that they put GOD first above all then family. My soul was so feed this past weekend listening to the stories of the panel. This is my 3rd year going and I come home every time with a renewed spirit and focus goal.

My sister got us started with Advocare and I knew she was very happy with her weight lose and the energy that she was getting from the products that I had to get hubby and myself on it. Johnny Loper is our top man and boy does he have the positive energy that just get you to moving. Johnny and his brother Thomas just released a book and I purchased it and I tell you what I am "Fired Up and Ready"
So on Aug 1 Johnny is starting a 24 Day Challenge and I will be doing the challenge right alone with him and the book is the first part of the cleanse such a great tool.

The final speaker on Saturday night was  Walter Bond and I ha…

A simple layout

Image
Okay so today was my day I got two layouts done. I started this layout months ago. My goal is to finish up those projects that are just laying around. Lord knows I have plenty of pictures just laying around and mini albums that are complete that need pictures and embellishments.

Ok so on this layout I had the Polaroid cut out awhile back and the big gear. So last night I turned on the Cameo and cut out the gear page and finished this layout. The main paper is also gears but it was in my stash but I think it is paper studios.

The picture is my grandson showing all of his 32's. He loves to smile and this layout was just for him.

Her request was shabby chic with black/whites/cream/pink so here is my pages . You have seen these pics before it is of my high school girlfriends and our weekend trip to Kansas. I used everything from my stash. I hope Iley likes it.

Smashing

My husband has been working in Dallas for the last two weeks and since I am a stay at home mom/wife, I got to come along and stay at the hotel and enjoy Dallas. We have a suite and I just love being spoiled. I brought along a few crafting items but it doesn't seem like I brought the right things to really scrap but I brought one of my smash books and I did a couple of pages which I should have finished the book but mojo is still on vacation.



I love this hotel we are staying at because it has this wonderful gym and every morning I get up and go do my daily work out.
 This is what I had every morning for breakfast. I am sure going to miss this
