Sweet Sunday Challenge

Good evening crafters, today I needed to do something crafty so I pulled up Sweet Sunday sketch challenge 253 to make this simple card. I have several birthdays coming up next month so I need to get busy on them

I used a 12x12 DCWV My Sunshine for the card and the left over paper I went ahead and made a layout with them.

The stamps are from S&P old set

I went through my pictures and found these of my daughters when my oldest one was pregnant with baby Z. I cut the title out with my new toy the Scan and Cut machine. I do love the ease of this machine just wish I had time to really play with it this weekend.  I added some want  to scrap bling on the page and some inspirational stickers from my stash along with the homemade dots.

Birthday flip it

Today I needed to get these two cards in the mail

So I pulled out the sizzix circle flip die and some Stamps of life paper and word die to complete these two quick cards

This one I cut the ice cream cones upside down so the flip is going backwards but it is for a teenager and I am sure she will not mine at all

a few layouts

I need to really get busy on my grand son's album so I pulled out ctmh Baby Cakes paper and made these pages

This layout was done with desk to dawn layout of at iclassygirl 

this one is a PL page and I still used the same paper. I only have 2 12x12 sheets left

only 1 sheet of emblishments 

I love the simplicity of this paper pack. I can't wait to dig into more of ctmh kits

this little boy had some many looks for someone who was only on this earth a few short months

this is my list favorite one but it is another page complete. I will have to go back and update my ticker 

Naptime was from the emblishments as well

until next posting be bless

Happy Birthday to my oldest daughter

Today is my oldest daughter Kendra's birthday she turned 28 today. Hard to believe that the Lord blessed me with this girl. I tell you though she really gave me the blues in her teenage yrs but I couldn't ask for a better woman as my daughter. 
I made this quick simple card for her. She isn't a fancy girl like her mother so she will like this card and the sentiment is so fitting I had to figure out her age today before posting I know sad right. 

she is the sweetest thing when she wants to be.

I used Stamps of Life paper for the card.

Grandson's homework assignment

Today my grandson's teacher comes over to me and states that he doesn't have to do this assignment since he just started at this school last week. My grandson tells the teacher my Nana is a scrapper she can do it lol

The assignment is to complete a tri fold board over a book that he has read and it is due tomorrow lol

this is the book he read pretty simple

and this is the best I could come up with after I finished work tonight. I pulled out the Explore machine and guess how many pages for the cuts - 45 well since I was in a rush I didn't merge the pages together and I don't have any 12x24 paper urggg

all and all he is happy with the quick project done and now off to bed...hopefully tomorrow I can get back to my challenges since I am a few days behind now another urggg

Happy Birthday to my baby boy Jalen

It is hard to believe that 17 yrs ago God blessed me with this little boy. Wow looking back at this picture I look so young. My son was delivered to me at 7:02 that morning. I remember my water breaking about 3 am but since I was scheduled for a c section that next morning the doctor let me go through the whole darn labor process and that morning I was admitting into surgery

My son looked like me at birth but now he totally looks like his dad

This is my birthday boy all grown up.....Happy Birthday baby Mom and Dad love you to pieces

Sunday completes

Hello crafters, I didn't feel like smashing last night so I completed challenge 10 & 11 tonight. The first one is what is your favorite couple well I have to go with hubby and myself lol. We took this picture back on Thanksgiving at his mom's. It is a real simple page but it is complete

challenge 11 is try a new recipe. I fixed banana nut bread for the first time and hubby loved it so much that I will be fixing some more this week when the banana ripe. I know it looks burnt but it wasn't but going by the recipe I would have if I left it in 10 more mins. 

I did a two page spread using CTMH Ariana paper pack. Trying to use it up. I found some more pics of my grand daughter Sunny who is 4 now so sad that these pics are just sitting in a box got to keep this energy moving and get them done.

I just love these papers

Until tomorrow be bless

Desk to Done and PL

Hello crafters, I managed to get a layout done from Tiare Desk to Done #48, I need to go back and get some more of her sketches done but I am looking forward so I will try and stay up with it from today on.

I used CTMH kit Ariana to make this layout and I need to pull out more of my grand daughters pictures and finish up the kit and be done with it. I used the stamp set that came with the kit. I used some modeling past with some pink paint on my stencil. When I purchase the kits I always buy all the emblishments that go with it so the flowers, the bow are from the kit. I used a wood camera veneer  and ran it through the modeling paste and paint. 

I had an old flair from a few yrs back that went well on the page

This is my PL page for 2015. I will not be doing a daily or even monthly I will just do the pages as I feel. I am not very good at keeping up with a schedule of scrapping so I will do these pages as the mood hits. 
I cut the title with the explore machine and added some thickers for 2015

I pulled out some stamps from CTMH that I got from last month's order again trying to really use what I have and especially the new stuff that comes in the door.

I enjoyed doing this page but now I really need to finish my Dec daily PL which wasn't a daily I couldn't take pictures everyday since it was just hubby and I no need to snap one for us resting lol

Oh well back to crafting before it is time to hit the sack

Smashbook page 6, 7 and 8

I am really enjoying this challenge over at Kay's YT channel. 6 challenge was what books are on your wish list to read. I pulled out the explore machine and cut a few images and printed my wish list.

Page 7 is Excited about the new season?
I just love the way Olivia dress and I remember this sticker set I had in my stash 

page 8 is what is in your cart?
Well you know I have been saying I am going to use what I got so I went online to find a silhouette of a shopping cart and I went straight to the explore and cut that baby out used a stamp from CTMH and added some bling and the page was complete

My oldest grandson has moved back near me so he stays with me again and I needed to make him a shirt real quick for school and this is what I came up with using the explore machine again. I told you it is my go to machine..He was a happy camper

until tomorrow posting be bless
