Weekend Project

This is how I spent the better portion of my weekend, making 25 invitations for a party my daughter is having.  Saturday afternoon she comes over and says she needs invitations for a party, no idea what she wants, other then "summery" and not like a luau.  Ok, not to hard, then she says I need 25 and I want to mail them Monday morning!  (Ya gotta love your kids right?!)  So half of Saturday was spent occupying the grandkids and coming up with a layout.  About 8:45 we run out of tape for the gun and make a quick ($30 of stuff) run to Wal-Mart because everyone else is closed already.  Finally on Sunday night we are finished.
Everything but the watermelon was cut from Life's a beach, the watermelon is from Doodlecharms.  Can't tell you the paper (thank goodness for CHA early) because we were just going through everything I had to pick the colors.  It was a fun weekend though.

Thanks for looking

MPS episode 131 winter project

This is my entry for the MPS Challenge 131 It's Cold Outside.
This is a side step card.  I used the Winter Wonderland cartridge. The white trees are glitter paper and the trim and holly on the sleigh are also glitter paper.  The  Believe stamp is from MPS.  Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.

Rock star LO

My 3 yr old grandson LOVES playing Rock Band ..he does it all, sing, guitar & the drums!  It's amazing what these little ones can do now!

I must have been kissing toads because until I met you I didn't feel like a princess!

This is my "princess" themed card for Emma's Thursday Throwback challenge. 
The inside of the card reads
 "I must have been kissing toads because I didn't feel like a princess until I met you!"
I used the Sweethearts cart and Once upon a time paper from DCWV.

Day 1

I've decided to try my hand at creating a blog just because I want to participate in Emma's (at weekly challenges.
