~No Worries- Fun In The Sun Card!~

Good morning my friends, 

I wanted to share a fun shaped card that I created for Trinity Arts.
How fun is this?? It's a flip flop card or as they say in Hawaii
a "slipper" card. :) I love it. 

If you want to find instructions for this card I have them on the 
Trinity Arts Blog right here.
I used the beautiful Clearsnap Smooch Inks, and Colorbox ink
to make the edges pop out a little and for the sentiment. 
Now tomorrow I have a special blog hop, be sure to come back! :) 
Have a wonderful Thursday my friends. 

OH don't forget my class begins this week! You can take it day or night.

~Welcome Dottie- Interactive Layout W/ Multiple Photos!~

Good morning my crafty friends, 
What a weekend!! One last baseball game for 3 weeks then
I threw hubby a small birthday BBQ dinner with just 
a couple friends last night, and Saturday he went into get a new tattoo for his birthday.
Our first Squash popped it head in the garden, BOTH boys were sick.

I went in on Thursday to get this new tattoo on my thigh,
I have affectionately named her Dottie, I love her! LOL 
Non-stop it seems like! :) 
 Anyways on to crafty goodness. 
A couple weeks ago I created this fun and very interactive layout.
I have OODLES of beach photos and I am tired of scrapbooking them
one by one so I decided to make a mini album on a scrapbook page! :) 
 What better way then to use my Bind-It-All to do this?!
 I used the 1/2 O'Wires and just glued it right onto my layout.
 I always say there are no rules in scrapbooking for me and this just 
shows you, NO RULES! do it how you do it! :) 
I have embellished pages that are 1/2" high so why not use the
Bind-It-All and make my own??
You can find full directions on the Zutter Bind-It-All blog here
I loved adding the twine to the binding, it was a fun project to create. 

Oh heads up to! CLEAR SCRAPS is partnering with Stampendous and
running a week long blog hop, so hop over and check out the prizes!
Let's see I don't think anything else is going on just right now....
It's so hot, I might as well stay inside and scrap today!
Happy Monday my friends~

~Open Window Crystal Card~

Good morning my friends, 

I have a fun and special project to share with you today, a
hand made window card with Connie Crystals in the "window". 
 The amazing Crystal Sun Catcher is from Connie Crystal and it's perfect 
for my little "window". It's the Mixed Media Octagon Suncatcher in blue theme. 
I hand cut the window using my scissors and a craft knife.
 The card itself is made from the Scraptastic Club PB&J Kit, (I love it!)
Don't forget to "like" the Connie Crystal page on Facebook.

I will try to share my new tattoo tomorrow on my blog :)
I have pictures and it's adorable! WOOHOO!
Ok off to the boys....busy day with the family 
ahead plus a baseball game again tonight.
Have a wonderful Friday my friends!!!

~Don't Worry...Be Happy!~

Good morning crafty friends, 

I have a fun little retro style card today to share.
I made this yesterday with the supah rad Scraptastic Club PB&J Kit
I love how versatile this kit is and how much fun I have had creating
very different projects with it. 
I went a little funky with the Don't Worry on the banner,
but I love funky weird goodness, it just felt right. 
 I almost felt like I was making a retro postcard. 
 Oh I did add the twine myself from Hydrangea Hippo,
 but everything else was from the fabulous PB&J kit. 
Had a fun day yesterday with my girlfriends, and family. 
Today I am headed out for NEW INK! Very excited, I will share more 
tomorrow, hopefully with fun pictures. :)
Happy Thursday my friends~

~ 2 Projects (Frame & Layout) + My BIG Little Man~

 Good morning my friends, 

I have a dual purpose post today. 
#1 projects of course but #2 is my BIG little man.

13/14 years ago I cam into my husband's life and became mommy to
a very stubborn boy who was as cute as a button. After taking these pictures 
last night I see he is growing up! LOL

But first I wanted to share this new Globecraft Memories Bubble Frame

to the Globecraft Memories Blog and check it out.
Now this is not my usual company to work for but I LOVE them!
So be sure to like them on Facebook too!

Ok on to the photos I shot last night...
This is Bradley's tournament game, can't believe how big he has gotten
from those days when he was learning to tie his shoes and not throw a fit LOL

He didn't get to play in elementary school and middle school since
we had moved but moving here was the BEST thing we ever did, I have never
seen this kid happier and healthier! :) 
He loves his baseball, glad he had no choice but to let me take pictures LOL

I have one more project to share- a digital layout
I made of my little helper Austyn who came to visit and craft
last week. Love that kid! :)
All good back to the ball field tonight...last week of tournaments 
until the 13th of July...oh the life of a ball mom.
Happy Tuesday my friends~
