I am starting on some Christmas cards. You got to be in the mood for Christmas cards...not something I can just make all year round. I just loved this stamp, so now I am starting. Made this using CTMH Jingle papers. The stamp is CTMH, Ms. Holiday Cheer. Little bit of Juniper ribbon.

Yeah, so it has a lot of pages for a layout! I could've made a whole book if given enough pictures. Anyway....It was an awesome concert. I went with Brandy, Lennie, and Valene. Almost didn't make it, since the tickets were on my kitchen table. I need to find a spot to journal on this layout just for that story!!!

Shane had a couple birthday parties this weekend...so I whipped up some fun BOY cards. I just got the SU skateboarder stamp. Was excited to use it. I embossed it in silver, so it would go with the fun foil skull paper. Added a scrap of red and inked the edges. DONE! Pretty cool if I do say so myself

Here is the card I made for all of us at work to sign. It is for one of our employees who left for school. What a fun car to color too! The inside was just going to be basic, but then Mandy suggested a cake stamp, so that we could say "Hey, we made you a cake!" So I made it with a speedway flag on it!

I made this card for a friend of mine. She had something exciting happen in her life, so thought that she need a card!! I used SEI Poppy foil pp, from a BYOM August kit. The stamps are from Bombshell stamps. The ribbons were included in the kit.

Here are the cards I made for Tawnya's shower and party. Basically I couldn't decide what fun paper to use, so I did both. I used the Matt Stacks paper, Bombshell Stamps, and used my CTMH markers, and pencils to color them. I used my Paper Glaze to make the bubbles shiny to make the Party girl a little more fun. I had also altered the original stamp, because the glass had a little skull and crossbones. I masked it. Then stamped the little flower/banner image and cut it out. Used some fun Pager Glaze on that too. I also roughed up the edges of the cowgirl. The pics aren't that great because I used my cell to take a pic, because I didn't remember my camera.

I have these Easter pages done finally, and I don't know what year they are!!! That is what I get for not writing on the pics when I get them.
I die cut letters out of the water in the extra pics. Otherwise the PP is all American Crafts.
With these LOs, I was trying to incorporate my stamps into them. Especially since I bought summer themed stamps for swimming purposes. I had fun coloring them. They were CTMH stamps, a couple diff sets. The PP were from a QVC pack. I got the sketch from Blueprint Sketches. I also made use of my label maker! I love that thing. I would label everything, if the refills weren't so dang $$$$

I have been working on coloring this girl for awhile now...then I needed to find a good coordinating color to go with it, and she fell somewhere...in my scrapbook room explosion!!! SO I had to color her again. Not that she was hard but dang it anyways!!! I ended up making a "mistake" (I know Katie, no mistakes in crafting!!) So I inked all over the white. I wanted a more distressed look to it anyways. I used CTMH papers and ink. I used the Roley-poly western like stamp from SU. I sprayed the chocolate paper with Latte colored Glimmer Mist. She is of course from BOMBSHELL STAMPS! They are my new favorites right now!! I have a few more colored, but just need to make them into a card or something.
Hey! Look at that perfect pic with my roley stamp there and the part of the Bombshell packaging! Not even on purpose! ( I stamped it with my phone so that I could share it)

LOL you can see the green scissors peaking out from under the rug. He did NOT want me to take a picture. And told me about it later, that it wasn't nice!! I told him back, "Well, I have to scrapbook it, so that someday you can look back and laugh about it."
Oh and not only did he cut his hair, but he took a blue ink pad and rubbed it all over his PJ's. Check out his leg!
He also cut off a chunk of his "blue blankie". These are just some of the little hairs he is missing now.
Here are the little boxes I decorated for the kids for V-day! Guess where I got the boxes.....From the salt and pepper shakers I got for Christmas!! I kept them, thinking, I might use these some day. WOW! I actually did!

I love Martha Stewart! Also, cupcakes. So when she had Cupcake Week going on, I was actually caught up on my Tivo. Anywho, they did these fun CUPCAKE POPS. The chick from Bakerella was the guest! I went right to the Martha site to add the recipe to my FAVORITES. I kind of forgot about this for awhile, till I was blog hopping and came across the Bakerella blog. She had other ideas for these cupcake bites and all sorts of stuff. So I decided it was time to make them. I thought it would be fun to take pics, hoping they came out cute...Oh and the Cream Cheese Buttercream frosting was sooo good, it barely made it to the crumbled cake!!
(I may have skipped the step about only using 2 cups of frosting...wasn't paying attention to how much the frosting recipe actually made! LOL!!)
I didn't have the thing she shaped hers with, nor the patience to do each one. I was, after all, working with melting chocolate. If you take too long, it gets all hard, and you can't dip anymore. So the first few got kind of hand shaped. (Note to self, shape before getting chocolate melted!)
The kids loved them. They are still trying to sneak them. I had to take some to work and my sisters to get them out of the house!!!

Here is what Rya's Valentine day cards look like. She picked out the lo, by looking though a Papercraft magazine. Picked out the CTMH stamps. She desided to go with circle punches instead of the squares the magazine showed. She even decided her own sentement on it. For some crazy reason, I don't have a good "Valentine" stamp...She spelt out "BE MINE" with a CTMH alphabet. The papers are Doodlebug, from what Tess sold me. They were really cute. The cute little red hearts are fuzzy!! My pic is kind of whited out, but you get the idea.

So I was looking back through some emails and saw this contest on Sheetloads. Then I decided what papers I was gonna use and put one together after dinner. I love how it turned out! I sprayed some light pink CS w/ Glimmer Mist, Vintage Pink. The papers are from Imaginisce, the Kewl Stuff line. I stamped in some Essential glue , with a heart stamp (CTMH Soul Mates set. You know I had to buy the SOUL mates set, right!!) Then added some glitter! Glitter is fun! It was Art Glitter, Hot Kiss. I finished it off my inking the edges.
