It's the Little Things....

I am working on an album for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law of their 4 children this year.  The focus is Christmas through the years and times with grandparents and great-grandparents.  This page features their youngest, Rosie and her grandpa from Florida.  I used a bunch of older Echo Park papers from my stash and this awesome sketch from Grand Diva's Scrappy Place Blog:

I am entering this sketch in 3 challenges:

The This or That Challenge from The blog of Rochelle Spears, which is also part of the Scrappy Friends Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope this weekend was as awesome for you as it was for me.

Being Your Friend.....

I love coffee and I love coffee themed cards and stamps.  I am in a monthly exchange of coffee themed cards with a bunch of other coffee loving papercrafters.  This card is on it's way tomorrow to Cape Girardeau, MO

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and I used their awesome sketch #268

You can see the sketch and enter the challenge HERE

My weekend is over and I am so sad.  It is back to work tomorrow.  All I really want to do is stay home, drink coffee and make pretty stuff.


The Snuggle is Real

I just love this picture of my granddaughters taking a nap with their new pup, Hazel.  The family got her last summer as a rescue and she has fit in very well with them.  She is a Basenji and you have to love those ears of hers. They are naturally like that because Basenjis are one of the few dogs that use their ears to hunt.

I am entering this page in Clique Kits February Anything Goes Challenge.

It is a busy Sunday here with both the Daytona 500 on and the Winter Classic hockey game from Minnesota with the Chicago Blackhawks. Thank goodness for 2 TVs.

17 Years

Have you ever had a layout that you wanted to do for a long time and everything had not come together yet?  Well I wanted to document my job and how long I have worked it and finally I had the right picture of me at work, the right papers and the right sketch.  I used October Afternoon's 9-5 collection.  It is an older collection that I found in the bottom of my OA drawer and nearly forgot about.  It worked perfectly for me.  This month's sketch at The Scraproom Blog was also just right for this page:

I am also entering this page in the Clique Kits February Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.  Tomorrow is Wednesday and the work week will be half over.  I think we will celebrate by going out to dinner.  Do you ever celebrate hump day?


I Lava You

Who has seen the short 7 minute animated film "Lava"?  My hubby and I saw it before seeing the Minions Movie last summer and we LOVED it.  It really struck a chord with us because in the film the volcano waits a LONG time to have the perfect partner.  Both Dave and I can totally relate to that feeling that perhaps life will not bring along the perfect companion.  When I saw this stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs, I knew I had to have it, if for no other reason than I wanted the volcano and the "I Lava You" sentiment.  But with lots of little nieces and nephews and some grandkids too, I know I will use the dinosaurs that are part of this set as well.  I used one of the Sugar Pea February sketches:

This was my Valentine's Day card to Dave the other day and he loved it. And I loved making it.

Thanks for stopping by tonight.

Colorado 2016

My hubby and I recently had to make a quick unexpected trip to Colorado for a week.  While there Winter Storm Kayla struck.  Let me tell you, these Floridians were cold and in awe of the weather.  It WAS fun to play in the snow a bit but I was really glad when we hopped on a plane at the end of the week and headed back to Florida!!  I am entering this page in the Scrap March? February Colour Challenge:

I used Lipstick Red, Sea Aqua, Grey Plank and Black Ink.

I am also entering this page in the Scrap Our Stash Book Inspired Stash Challenge I was inspired by the moose-like creature on the cover and the colors. I also have 2 hearts on my page.

Thanks for stopping by tonight....I have a busy weekend but I will be popping in and sharing more creativeness.


Happy Valentine's Day Abby!

I love making Valentine's Day cards. This one was especially fun since I got a chance to color a bit.  I am just learning with my Copic markers and I am enjoying the process. I used this awesome sketch from Viva La Verve.  The image is from the Pure Innocence line of My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by tonight....have a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend!
