Easter Altered Frame

I bought an inexpensive pine frame at Michael's recently and decided to alter it for Spring/Easter to showcase a great freebie Subway Art print from Eighteen 25.  If you would like to download one just click HERE.  I used Jillibean Soup's Southern Chicken Soup collection which is an awesome spring/Easter themed collection from last year.
Happy Easter everyone!!

This is Life -- Week #9

I am a bit behind in my Project Life pages but I keep good notes from each week and I am hoping to knock out a couple of weeks this weekend.  This is page 1 of Week #9....not such a great week as my dad left and went home to Colorado and Dave caught the flu and it went into pneumonia in his right lung.  He is all recovered now but was very sick for a couple of weeks. But I am documenting life and let's face it not every week is rosy.
I am entering this page in Scrap Your Story's Cork Challenge as the letters for my title are cork.  I just love the earthy, natural texture cork adds to my project.

He is Risen!

I marathoned it yesterday and made all of my Easter cards in one day.  This card is my favorite.  I used this sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:
I am also entering this card over at Simon Says Stamp Easter theme.
I am linking it up at Paper Issues Up in the Clouds theme.

Hello Friend Birthday Card

When I was in Chicago recently I got to see one of my favorite ladies.  Technically she is my ex-sister-in-law but since she and my brother divorced she has been more of a part of the family than he has (sad to say).  In reality, Patty is like a sister to me.  But with her in the Chicago area and me in Florida we do not see each other too often so I was very happy that she came to Abby's birthday party.  It is her birthday this coming week and I wanted to make her a card.  Here is a picture of her and I from a couple of weeks ago:
I used this card sketch from Artful Delight:

Paper Issues Up in the Clouds Theme


I am in the process of re-doing my wedding album so that all the pages coordinate.  I am really loving the way the pages are turning out.  Here is another page for the album. Since we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary in a little over a month, I thought it was time I get busy on this project.
I used the March sketch from Artful Delight:
I am also entering this page in Frosted Designs Up, Up and Away challenge which was to use something on your project that you would see in the sky.  Well in addition to the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign in my photo, I also included a badge in the center of my scarlet flower that has two little love birds pictured. This also qualifies for Paper Issues Up in the Clouds Theme so I am linking it up there as well.
I am enjoying a scrappy weekend so this is the first of what I hope will be many posts this weekend with my completed projects.

I love receiving a card in the mail for no particular reason and I love sending cards to family and friends for no particular reason.  This is one of those cards going out to an online friend just because I like her and she is one of the sweetest and most generous people I know.
I used this sketch from Simon Says Stamp:
Also, did you see the new collection from my favorite company Bella Blvd?  It is called All American and I LOVE IT!!!!  To see how you can win it before you can buy it go HERE.

Thanks ....that's all for now but I am working in my scraproom today so {hopefully} I will have more to share with you later.

Time Marches On....Project Life Week #7

Here is my week #7 of the Project Life album that I am doing this year.  This week contained Valentine's Day which since it was in the middle of the work week, got barely a nod from Dave and I .  Also tragically there was an unexpected death in the family which I wanted to document.  When my weeks are fairly uneventful I only do a one page layout.  Busier weeks get 2 pages.

St. Patrick Day's card

Here is my second St. Patrick's Day card.  For this card I heat embossed 4 Celtic shamrocks and place a small green rhinestone in the center of each one.  I used another one of $1 stamps (I love a bargain) for the sentiment.
I am entering this card in Pumpkin Spice's Challenge #9.  For this challenge I had to use the color green and 4 of something.  I used the 4 embossed shamrocks.
Well it is Sunday night and it is back to work tomorrow.  My hubby has been very sick with the flu and pneumonia and tomorrow is his first day back to work.  I hope he continues to improve.
Have a wonderful week.

Mountain Dudes

I love using sketches as a jumping off point for my layouts.  Sometimes I follow them closely and sometimes I don't.  This is a case where I didn't follow too closely to this sketch:
I started off with the large die cut chevron green paper, I substituted one horizontal picture for the two vertical photos and since it was a layout of my grandsons I eliminated the layered border punches and just used my notebook punch along one side. 
Checkout the sketch and free digital template at Miracles Momma Designs HERE.
