Sending A Whole Lot of Love Your Way

I love these Pure Innocence little girl stamps from My Favorite Things partially because they remind me of my little granddaughter. I decided to color her up and play along with the sketch this week from My Favorite Things:

Happy Human Happy Cat

My son recently adopted a cat or I should say the cat adopted him. He has posted some pictures on Facebook and Instagram and I recently won the Simple Stories Feline mini-collection so it was a
no-brainer to put this page together for Adam's scrapbook.

I used the January sketch from Rochelle Spears Paper/Sketch challenge:

I am also playing along with the Scrappy Friends Challenge by entering this page In
Brenda's January "This Month In History" Challenge. I used option #4 which was to create a layout with the word HAPPY in the title and to use Thickers for all or part of the title.

That is it for tonight...I hope your weekend was as fun and productive as ours was.

Christmas Morning Joy

My youngest granddaughter has the quirkiest personality and is always making all of us laugh. I just love the expression on her face in this photo taken on Christmas morning after opening all her gifts. I found the perfect sketch to use to create a page for her scrapbook. It is the January 1st sketch from

Thanks for stopping by to see my creation. Have a wonderful and productive upcoming week.

Strong Coffee, Sweet Friendships

A dear friend of mine is having another this month (at our age we do not exactly look forward to turning another year older). When I received this stamp as a prize for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop from Art Impressions, I knew it would be perfect for a card for Debbie. We have been friends for well over 30 years and although I moved 1000+ miles away nearly 15 years ago, we still keep in touch.

There is a designer that I follow for inspiration on the internet -- Laurel Seabrook -- and she brought back her inspiration challenges this year. I was inspired by this photo:

I was inspired by the blue/cream/brown color palette and the snow flakes. I am entering this in her

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Something New Challenge since this was the first time I inked up both the image and sentiment from this stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by on this cold winter is even cold here in Florida. But I am loving our touch of cold will be in the 70's again next week.

When Santa Came to Visit

My granddaughters had an awesome surprise a couple of weeks ago when the local fire department pulled up with lights flashing to their home and Santa got out with gifts and goodies for them. My son took pictures and of course I had to document When Santa Came To Visit. Let's just say my 9 year old granddaughter had her faith in Santa renewed. I used this perfect sketch from

Thanks for stopping by my blog tonight. Have a lovely, creative weekend.

Happy Birthday Noah

Our nephew's 10th birthday is coming up and I sat down this evening and had some fun making him this card. I was enjoying the stamping so much I continued the stamping inside the card and on the envelope. I used one of my newer stamp sets from Your Next fact neither the cute doggie image or the sentiment had ever been inked up before. This is the sketch I used from

I am also entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Monday Something New Challenge

Thanks for stopping by....I have a scrapbook page to share tomorrow so I hope you will come back them.

Cookies for Santa

My granddaughter is nearly 10 and is really doing well on learning to bake and cook. She baked, frosted and decorated these cookies for Santa this year and did a great job in my opinion. I used the December Jumpstart sketch from The ScrapRoom Blog for this page:

I turned the sketch 90 degrees to accommodate my horizontal picture which I enlarged to a 5x7 so you could really see how beautiful Abby and her cookies are. I really busted my stash for this page using papers from Tim Holtz, Bella Blvd. and Imaginisce.  I plan on using up a good deal of my stash this coming year....I really have some awesome stuff in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and Happy New Year!
