St Patricks Day

Yes, I am doing it. I am showing my never get out any more side. I got to go out for St Patricks Day this year. It was on a week night, took the train into town and had a ride home so I let my hair down and got a little silly and IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! So here is a lay out of the crazy evening with some friends. I will probably have a few more scrap pages to share but I WILL have some cards to share before too long. Me and my 5 high school friends are having our girls Christmas this Friday night and we will eat, drink, play Christmas music, exchange gifts and make our Christmas cards. I have already started to pack a few things as I have some ideas in my head. I need to write those down! otherwise these wonderful ideas will be gone! crazy how I can barely remember things anymore. I did not get ANY crafting time in these 4 days off! We had 3 Thanksgiving dinners to attend and we babysat the grandbaby Friday and Saturday. Which was great I haven't seen him in about 2 months!
I don't remember who made the paper. I got it on clearance at my LSS. The letters were cut out using one of the fonts on the Hannah Montana Cricut cart. Okay gonna run, I am going to attempt to make a couple of necklaces or bracelets for gifts for some co-workers. Thanks for stopping by my little piece of the blog world. Have a great night.

Happy Black Friday to some of you CRAZY shoppers! Not me boy. Online shopping all the way!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and or friends. Ours was just perfect and we have two more to go! Today at my in-laws and Sunday at my daddy's. Goodness gracious you will have to roll me through the door to work on Monday! LOL
Anyway quick post as I need to go get ready. This is another page I made on my scrappy weekend. This is my Step-son Steven and his little boy Logan, my favorite grandbaby!!!
I used the Cricut Home Accents for the swirly image on the side. The paper is from a Fiskars package I won a while back. It is more wintery themed but obviously dosnt have to be winter.
I stamped with Damask Designs from PTI (swooon!!) The cardstock is old stuff I have had in my stash probably since the begining of this fabulous hobby of mine. The play stamp I borrowed from my great friend Tina so I do not remember the maker. The little fleur-de-lis is chipboard by American Crafts. I decided to leave it plain white. The great big fat ribbon is Offray. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think. Have a great weekend!

Tiny Dancer

Hidy HO!!!!
Hows your day going? I worked 11 hours today trying to make up for some time that I will be off for Thanksgiving. I was planning on working over tomorrow too but...we have 3 houses to check out. We still have not heard about our short sale offer yet. It has been 3 weeks now so maybe within another month. But just in case we are not chosen then we are going to keep looking.
SOOOOOOO, here is one of the pages I did while on my super fun scrappy weekend getaway.
I need another get away to have some time to make cards. I MISS playing in my craft room. Everything is still there, not packed away, I just haven't had time.
I love watching Grace dance. I love it because she loves it, it makes her so happy you can just see it on her face. I am not really big on the Lyrical dances but she (and the other girls) was so graceful and beautiful during this dance this past competition season! I call this her leap but she says it is something else. I hope you like. Thanks for your visit! Come again soon. I hope to have something new posted. Have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!

Vintage Happy Christmas

Well, Hello! How are you? My, my the time sure has flown by lately. We have been extremely busy getting our house ready to put on the market. AND I am getting ready to go on a scrapbooking retreat to Center Hill Lake bright and early Friday morning!! YEA ME!

Here is the other vintage Christmas card I made last week. Used some more of the super fantastic Graphic 45 punch outs. I decided to go for glitter again. This time I ran the two way
glue pen around the edge of the tag and dipped it into some CTMH red glitter. OH it is so pretty.
and broke out some more of the vintage sheet music!! The patterned paper is Basic Grey. The ribbon and button is PTI. I ran a simple stitch with the sewing machine around the edge. The "snowflake" is a flower image from the Cricut Home Decor cartridge. Then I glued that whole die and covered it in Dazzling Diamond glitter from Stampin' UP! I got the basic layout idea from a card by Melissa Phillips in the Cards Magazine.

Okie Dokie kids. Gotta start packing for my scrappy weekend. Have a great night!! Thanks for taking the time to visit me today!

December 25th

Happy Sunday Night!
Hope all is well, it has been a busy, busy weekend. NO crafty time except just a wee bit at Gina's crafty night at church. THANKS GINA! So here is one of the Vintage Christmas cards I worked on last week. I love how it turned out. If I may say so. I am in love with vintage sheet music at the moment. I ordered some from and need more already. The lace just happend to be in my sewing box! (yea!). The die cut paper edge is from Little Yellow Bicycle. The little Dec 25 punch out is Graphic 45. Then i stickled the edge of it for some fun glittery effect. Cardstock and ribbon is my favorite PTI. So that is it for now. Thanks so much for coming over to take a look at my card. Have a GREAT night!!

Well, wish us luck because there are 2 other offers on the house. I dont know when we will find out whos offer was accepted. It needs LOTS of TLC but we are up to the challenge. it has everything we want plus.
