Playing with some new stamps . . .

. . . and made a couple of fun cards.


This was one I made similar to my H2H entry, but I used mostly PTI products:

and a simple, but fun, thank you card . . .

I should be cleaning my scraproom, but I get too distracted . . . I start finding goodies I forgot I had . . then I have to stop cleaning and start scrapping . . . lol . .

And, I have to apologize for the poor quality of my pictures . . . as I'm rearranging, painting and cleaning my scraproom, I'll need to create a photobox to take pictures in so my backgrounds are nicer . . . oh well, hope you can see past the terrible photos and can enjoy some of my creations.

Thanks for stopping by!

Snow Day + No School/Work = H2H Challenge Time!

Yep . . . our first snow of the season and our poor little town is so not used to snow that school has been closed for 2 days . . going on 3 I'd say by looking out my window at the beautiful, fluffy white flakes coming down! We got about 9 inches of snow in our backyard over the last 2 days. It is beautiful!

Anyway . . . on with the challenge. The challenge this week at H2H was a thank you card, as we are in the midst of that wonderful time of year that we look at our lives and are ever so thankful for how much we are blessed. This year is especially sentimental for me . . . I am very thankful for my wonderful, loving husband and my beautiful boys. 'Nuff said . . . I don't want to get weepy on ya! Here's my card, made with . . .of course . . . beautiful fun Close To My Heart products . . . yet another reason to be thankful!


Hope you enjoy my card . . . now hop on over to the Heart to Heart page and check out all the other talented works entered in this weeks challenge . . . and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you . . . may you all realize just how blessed you are!

Beautiful paper . . .

. . . makes for simple, but lovely, cards. I had this velvety soft paper in my stash and made a couple of quick cards with it.



It's snowing here in Port Angeles today . . . our first snow of the season . . .


. . . a perfect day to spend some time playing in my scraproom (after a snowball fight with the family, of course)!!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

My first H2H Challenge!

. . . . and I'm hooked!!! It was so fun to play this week because the challenge was to create something GIRLY . . and I don't have any girls . . . just my 2 sweet boys. So, needless to say . . . I had a lot of fun digging into my pink stuff and using some of my Tickled Pink diecuts to make this card. I hope you enjoy it. And don't forget to check out all the other great GIRLY creations on the H2H blog!

A couple of cards

I recently rearranged my scraproom to make it more functional . . . and in doing so actually took the time to make a few cards. It was so nice to get my creative juices flowing again . . . it's so easy to lose myself in there. . .

My hiatus is over!

After a long time away . . . and a long break from scrapbooking and cardmaking . . I'm finally back! And I'm so excited . . not just because I've missed my crafting, but because my life is finally settling down again. Kids are back in school, weather is nice and crisp, autumn is in the air . . . ahhhh . . life is good (again!).

Stay tuned for some fun things I've done in the last week!

Fun layout . . .

I like this layout, because when you look at it you would never guess what it's about until you read the journaling! My husband took our youngest son out to pull crab pots and asked if he could take the camera and get some pictures. Well . . . against my better judgment I said yes and my camera ended up going OVERBOARD! Luckily he reached over the side of the boat and grabbed it before it sank . . . and I was (thankfully) able to save all the photos of the memory card, but the camera never worked again. These were the last photos taken before the plunge!

Time flies . . .

I can't believe it's been 6 months since I've posted on here - wow!

I have been doing a lot of scrapbooking . . . I think I've done at least 15 layouts in the past 2 months . . which is really good for me! I need to take some photos and get them downloaded to my blog. Making the layouts is the fun part - getting them on here . . . not so much!

The weather has been beautiful and I like to photograph my layouts outside, so I have no excuses! Stop back in a day or two and I'll have some of them uploaded . . . also have a couple (not many) cards that I can post too.

Thanks for stopping by . . . .
