~More Glam Rock Fun *All Girl Style Today*

Good morning my crafty friends...
*family updates below*

Today is the last day of the FUN release party from Imaginisce.
Here is my last little project...little bobby pins with the
i-top brad on them and flowers with the new Glam Rocks in heart shapes.
I love these snap on bobby pins and I used the vintage lace I laid them on
for the actual brad part. Just silly girly fun :)
Make sure to visit the Imaginisce blog for their PRIZES!

-Family Update-
Yesterday was a very long day full of X-rays and Dr. Apps for my boys.
Yes Bradley's hand was X-rayed and yes Justice was very sick.
We have a double round of medicine and upset kids today.
The X-ray results did not come in so I am STILL waiting on information,
and to be honest very stressed about it all.
I mean we went in at 8am and here I sit with no news and
they plan to "call me to come in" at any time since yesterday at 11am.

So today I wait to drop everything and head to the hospital. *sigh*
Anyways....happy thoughts, thanks for all the support!

~Team Spirit w/ I-rock & Family Update~

Good morning!!!

I still have not been to the Dr. because they made my son's
appointment for 8:30am today. Just a quick FYI for my friends
who have been asking. I will post tomorrow when I find out what's wrong.

As you know it is the release week for the NEW glam rocks
and i-rock goodies from Imaginisce.
Now this is not for the release, I just made this for ME! hehe

Thankfully my son agreed to model my team visor!!!
Isn't he freakin CUTE!-
Ok anyways....I used the new Large Flourish Stencil and my
older crystals from the compact to jazz up my team hat.
Yes, I put a little TEAM SPIRIT on Miss Pinky's visor!
I also free handed our last name.
I wanted to put PINKY but hubby said it was about the kids
not about mommy LOL I really wasn't thinking I guess, I just like
to bling up anything that goes on my head! :)
I love it! It screams GO TEAM LOL
This is the stencil I used....
Be sure to visit the Imaginisce Blog and enter to WIN!
They are giving away prizes all week long!

Ok I am off to the Dr. with my boys this morning...
I hope it goes well but I have a feeling it will be a long day.

~Brand New Glam Rocks & Chicken Update *pictures*~

Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.

We had a very busy weekend and I have pictures below, but
first I wanted to share my reveal with the new Glam Rocks from Imaginisce!
They finally have RED!!!!!!!! :) I am so excited!
Red studs which I used here, and new templates too.
I added my older black crystals as well. It was a fun project.
Of course I used my D-Stress on the Clear Scraps acrylic
to make it a permanent adhesive.
But I have to say I love the red! :)
Oh and go check out the blog...they are having GIVEAWAYS with
the new Glam Rocks!

I also wanted to share the picture of the new chicken pen.
After I went to Kentucky you know hubby bought 8 more chickens
bringing the grand total up to EIGHTEEN! hehe
They needed more room for sure. We just added the "babies" to the mix
yesterday, right after we built this new pen. It is 4 times the size of
the old pen and they are loving it!! It's also right beside my garden.
See how happy they are in the fresh grass?
All the grass in their old pen had died off of course.
Here are 2 of the older babies, the sick chickens that are looking very
healthy and happy now. They were really happy to not be the only
babies in the pen since we put the other 6 in.
They really are spoiled little monsters...these two LOL
We also dug out a 24 foot are for the pool. When I say we, I mean
the boys and hubby dug and I hauled dirt. LOL
Finally complete!! to add the sand and level it...
Feels like it will never be done. I am thinking maybe we should have
settled for a slip and slide and sprinkler LOL

Ok that's it for me today, I have to take my son tot he DR. we
are pretty sure he broke his hand.
We have to go for X-Rays and see what needs to be done. Looks
like possibly no more baseball for him....*fingers crossed*
he is fine and it's just sprained.
Happy Monday!

~Happy Easter w/Cricut Imagine Purse Card Holder~

Good morning my crafty friends and a very Happy Easter to you all!

We are spending the day as a family with a lovely lunch and
just spending time together. Maybe hiding some eggs! :)

Yesterday we had a little birthday party to go to,
so before the party I whipped up this little Purse Card Holder
with my Imagine and the Imagine cartridge "Imagine More Cards"
I LOVE this cartridge more than I thought I would! LOL
I used my Glue Arts Extreme Glue and some My Mind's Eye trim
along with some Imaginisce flowers & American Crafts Rosette trim.
It was really fun to make and the perfect
"Birthday money" holder for a little girl. :)
This is the back, I ran the trim all the way around.
I am so pleased with the Imagine printing and cutting for me.
OK that's all for me today, it's time for the family!
Happy Easter everyone!

~Leopard Rakes & Chicken Eggs??!!~

Good morning!!!!! Happy Thursday!!

I have to share this picture with you before I get to my crafts today.
Last night we planted the corn and hubby broke the rake.
He sent me inside because I was freezing...and he knocked on the window...
"Do we have duct tape??" I said..."I don't think so"
He knocked again..."YES we do, please go look!"
Oh yes we had Duck Tape LOL Leopard print Duck Tape! bwhahaha
He didn't care and a few minutes later knocked on the window with a big
old southern eatin' grin LOL

I could not resist sharing. :)

Also yesterday I made my Chicken Eggs For Sale sign!
You know its the old reliable tools I always turn too when I incorporate
crafting into my daily life, and I have to say my Purple Cows Laminator
is one I fall back on again and again!
I create the ENTIRE sign with my Cricut Imagine, Core'dinations Card Stock
and Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive. Even the paper is printed with my Imagine.
I assembled the entire thing as you know since I was laminating
it couldn't be layered much, so I kept it simple.
But its so cute!!!
Anyways...then I laminated it! :)
Now I am going to put it on a post and stick it in the yard!
I am going to make a little wooden one for the door eventually.
But I really needed a weatherproof sign for the yard.

So I am here with a smile today and excited about the corn too! :)
Happy Thursday everyone!
Thanks for coming by to say hello, I love ya for it1

~First Family Garden & Family Updates~

Good morning my crafty friends!

I am not going to lie, its been a tough week around here.
Last night was just what the Dr. ordered!

The boys had a game and they won BIG time and Gage earned the game ball!
It picked my spirits up tremendously. I was so down. Then to top it off a friend
showed up to the game! Last game was my close friend Adrienne, and this game
was my gal pal Ziggy! :) Thanks to my friends I feel like my boys have some
family in TN and it's great!

OK on to crafting right?
Oh and below are baseball pictures...LOL sorry you know I gotta do it!

This layout I made is 100% the new Tally Scrapper kit for MAY!
I love LOVE LOVE these paper and the flowers were perfect for my
"First Family Garden" layout.

Remember that 8X8 book I am making?
This will go in there.
OHHH and aren't those Tim Holtz hanger clips the best thing EVAH??
They are in the kit too! *swoom*
Ok on to the real stuff LOL
Gage getting the game ball last night.

He was struggling hitting the ball in the last couple games, but
this game he hit every single time!! WOOHOO!
You can see he was very excited and it was unexpected! :)
I was so proud of Justice too, he was tickled for Gage!!!! :)

Ok I am off to get ready for tomorrow, apparently I am making cupcakes
for school and did not find out until today!
Happy Hump DAY!!!!
