Made with Doodlebug paper and my Cricut &  Elegant Edges.  I want everyone know that I got the design element for this card form . I love her work.  this is the card of hers that I used!

Hit the Happy Mail jackpot today!!!!

This is what was in my mail box today.  Paper and stickers from Doodlebug Design inc., stamps from punkin patch and my order from Custom Crops (boy did they ship fast!).  The Doodlebug papers are so pretty and I love the stickers.  I guess I will have to make Valentine's now.  The punkin patch stamps are so intricate and the set includes cute to beautiful.

#26 LO for the year!

This is the sketch I used.  The base paper is DCWV the all About Girls stack, the butterflies were from K& Company Butterfly Color. The buttons were a mix of Webster's pages, baby pink Button Ups, and La di dah.  The brads were K & Company.  Simple but I think it came out ok.

#22 and #23 LOs for the year!

Well, I am keeping up sort of.  Here are my next two. I have now finished all the pictures I took at Christmas and some back years one, now I have to start digging and fill in the blanks in my scrapbooks.  I am doing 6 different books at this time and have to go back and do my two oldest books from about 1984 to their graduations.  Wish me luck.  I will try to keep up on pictures I take so I don't get years behind in some books.  Thank you for all your kind comments and cheering!  Love to hear from you!

#20 LO for the year! With a Inspired Stamps stamp.

Isn't my new stamp so cute?  She is from Inspired Stamps and I just think she is adorable. I am still learning how to color stamps but not bad for a first try.  I colored her to match my granddaughters outfit.  Hope you enjoy this one it was hard because I liked so many pictures.

Weekly Challenge for the Circle Blog

Used vinyl for this project,  The inside of the drawers are organized with plastic canvas to jpld each cart in its place.

#18 and #19 LO for the year!

These two LOs are alike but they go into two different books so it doesn't matter. I scrapbook for my four children and for my three grandchildren so sometimes to save time the LOs are alike. Pretty simple but I think they turned out well.  Paper is The Daily Grind by Fancy Pants Designs that I picked up at a scrapbooking event.  Love the double sided papers.  Fonts used were Billionaire and Boys Will be Boys.  Fish are from the Camping cartridge.  Hope you enjoy.

#10 LOs for the year!

I can't believe that I have finished 10 days worth of LOs.  No 1 a days isn't much but it is a lot better than I have been doing so I am PROUD of myself and I have only used the supplies that I have. This LO is sort of old school meet Cricut.  The penguins are hand cut and the Christmas and 2011 is Cricut cut.  Hope you enjoy.

Little early with this one but it is a single LO.  I am entering this one in the DCWV challenge.  Not very good at challenges but I made a resolution to keep trying and maybe I will get better at it.

So what do you think?  Is it OK or do I need to improve it somehow? The paper is Mango Frost from DCWV.  The Cricut cuts are from Cursive 101(lady), Art Nouveau (painted), Elegant Edges, and banner is Everyday Pop-Up.  The flowers are some I made and some boughten from my stash, the butterflies are from Elegant Edges, the little pink strip is from a Martha Stewart punch, and I inked the edges with Tim Holtz distressing ink.

#6 LO of the year!

All the paper is from Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey and all the embellishments are from the same package. Such pretty paper.  The left side is a sketch from DCWV challenge and this is going to be my next LO only with the DCWV paper.
