The Ceremony

Back to the wedding album, time to start cranking the pages out, less then a month left for their 1 year anniversary when I give them this gift.
I really love the sketch I used for this page ---->  Sketch 336 Scrapbook Challenges
Super simple page, the cardstock is all DCWV from the Latte Stack & two small Making Memories pearls at the bottom.

Happy Easter Flower

Super quick as I am ready to hit the hay... Here is another card for Pattern Play at
The cardstock is all BoBunny, The die I used on the flowers is from Quickutz "nesting blossoms" and my sentiment is from Hero Arts "celebrate everyday"

Night Night All

Pattern Paper Play

So this week over at, its Pattern Play. This is the first class I have taken with them, and it has been worth every penny. I really hate pattern papers. I really LOVE pattern papers, but never know how / when / where to use them. It never looks right to me and this class has put it into the right perspective. I believe you can still register. Go check it out!

Here's a card I made for the class;

I went with a Kraft base, and choose some patterns from My Minds Eye & Lost and Found. The sentiment is from Unity's Best Wishes and Blooms. After I sized and pieced all my papers together, I finished it off with a quick border run though my Sizzix and a cute little heart punch, which I dotted up with some white Enamel Accents.

Hope you Like!

Another one for the Wedding album. Here's a layout showcasing the bridal party dance.
Inspired by floating paper lanterns;

I started with a blank slate, white cardstock (colorbok)
Stamped assorted circles with Versa Mark and colored with Pebbles Chalk.
Sprayed some Gold Tattered Angels.
Framed and Adhered my photos and topped them all off with a pink ribbon Bow.

Feeling a Bit Accomplished...

I just learned how to scan & photo merge scrapbook layouts. A little bit excited about this :)

So until I can get the fancy camera I want, now I don't have to grunt and groan because my point & shoot isn't capturing my pages right... muhahahahaha....

Anyway, Here a layout for the wedding album I am working on. This one showcases a couple more of the "little details" photographed through-out the day. I have assigned myself a large challenge that is to scrap my scraps. My paper scraps box is over flowing and I never use them - So now, I am not allowed to make anything without using something from the box. I ended up making this entire layout with scraps, accomplishment # 2 of the night.

Cardstock:  DCWV Linen Closet + Plain Kraft
Stamps: Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous "Good Thoughts" (sentiment) & Hero Arts "Dotted Flowers"
             (flower embellishments).

Celebrate Spring

Holy Heat Wave! It was 60 here in Michigan today -- Its going to be 45 tomorrow, but I'll take what I can get. I fired up the grill for the first time in 2013 :).. Steak, Yum. Then I made this;
A Cricut project for Spring.
I used the April Showers cartridge + the scallop background from the Spring Cards cartridge.
I stamped and embossed "Celebrate" from Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday then cut out my assorted images.
Birdie needed some dimension so I stamped & embossed some Hero Arts Cling Dots on him, then topped everything off with some twine. The cardstock is DWWV Blossom Song stack.


You're Amazing

Yay! My Simon Says Stamp order came in on Friday.

Forever & Always

Another page to the good ole' wedding album. This one was Teresa Collins inspired. I used her stamps & cut outs from the Sophisticated Cricut Cartridge & "Fabrications" Stamps.

I decided early I wanted a chandelier somewhere on my page after browsing through the images on the Sophisticated cartridge & since these were first dance photo's, it seemed appropriate. I added some rhinestones to the Chandelier for a little bling. The sentiment was from the same cartridge, after cutting it out, I covered with glossy accents to make it pop. The photos were cut out using spellbinders grand ovals. Then the page was finished with some ribbon, additional cut out embellishments from the Sophisticated cartridge, and finally a few match stamps cut out with a circle punch and filled in with some black glossy enamel.

Its Margarita Time!!

Yay!! Its Friday! And that means two things...
      1)   ITS FRIDAY!!!!
           2) Its Friends with Flair Friday!!
The only better thing would be if it was Pay Week Friends with Flair Friday... Next Week...

So Kroger had these Bud Light Limearita's for $1 and I Like Margaritas and I like Bud Light so I thought, What the Heck.

Then I remembered I am one of those people that doesn't let my food touch... So why would I let my beer touch my margarita?

But I already opened it, and I am not going to waste!!

Its not that good.... Just saying. If you want a Margarita get a Margarita and if you want a beer get a beer. That's all.

Now to the Real Margarita

A lot of Unity Love in this one.
The Background is from the Quiet Essence pack, Stamped with some PTI Dye Ink.
The Tag was first stamped/embossed with an Ornate Artisian Stackers stamp, then cut out with the coordinaing spellbinders die. The sentiment and lovely stickles rimmed margarita are from self titled Itty Bitty "When Life Gives You Limes"
