"Time well spent"

Okay, I came home from work early today, I am feelin icky! Darn cold! Well after catching some ZZZZZ's and taking some Airborne(That stuff really works) I felt good enough to do some creating. so this is what I came up with. My friend Christina sent me some images of "time well spent" which I have to say that is my new most faveriotist set, too bad it is a level 3 set and I probably wont get it until it is no longer available, But hey, thats ok. I'll patiently wait! Well here it is.

I used cameo coral for the base of the card and the scallop is tempting turquois. I then punched holes into the flower and ran kneedlepoint thread from the middle out to the edge. then addeda turquoise brad. I hope you all like it. !

Belli It Up! Challange

Another challenge, I am beginning to love doing these challenges! This one is from Chrissy's "Belli It Up!
Go and check out her site! Pretty cool stuff! Well this challenge was to use Beads in some way and to tell you the truth I have tons of micro beads that I NEVER use so this was a good challenge for me. I also had to use one of my Bellas!
I also cut out bellas pants in the patterned paper that I used on the card. I think it looks pretty darn cute!
The recipe for the card is:
Positively pink, Tempting turquois CS. Orange polka dot ribbon from the dollar rack at Target and the stripe paper is called "wall of stripes" Enjoy!

My Daughters wish open house

Well tonight I went to an open house at "My daughters wish" and got to make 3 ATC's from 3 different designers. It was alot of fun not to mention they had raffels, munchies and we got to meet some of the designers that do work for "MDW"
The first ATC I did was designed by Lydia and you can check out some of her work at, I really really like this ATC and it only took a few minutes to make.

The next ATC was designed by Lisa,
I just love working with glitter and this one had plenty of it! I added a bakini top to the mermaid as to not be too well, nude : ) Love the crown!

The third and final ATC that I did is equally as cute. This one was designed by Casey Maupin.
This one was really quick and easy but equally beautiful!

Beates weekend sketch challange #31

Well I am attempting a sketch challange. This is my first one ever!
I saw it on Beates blog "Fresh & Fun"
I did the crayon resist technique.. I think it turned out kinda cute But we are always critical of our own work!
These are the supplies that I used.
Regal rose,basic black, almost amethyst & US white CS.
the stamp set I used was SU! Petal prints, I stamped the flowers
in basic black then outlined the flowers with a white crayon. I then sponged on regal rose,Mellow moss and rose red inks then rubbed pretty hard with a tissue and viola, you have the crayon resist! I then tied some mellow moss grosgrain ribbon around the stems of the flowers.

Beates weekend sketch challange #31

Well I am attempting a sketch challange. This is my first one ever!
I saw it on Beates blog "Fresh & Fun"
I found this tutorial at and thought I would give it a try. It is called the milk carton. I made this for a gift exchange partner that I have for this month and one of her fave candies is peanut M&M's so that is what I filled it with. I think I am going to try and make some more for my co workers since I work in a school cafateria and this is what our lunch milks look like it would be a great idea to give them something cuter than the average milk carton and candy in it instead of milk!

Valentine mini cartons

I saw these cute little mini milk cartons on Rochelle's blog(she is so darn creative and inspirational to say the least!) I used brads to close them instead of staples because I am horrible at tieing bows so it was just easier for me to use brads. The stamp set that I used is a conversation heart stamp set that I got from CTMH years ago , I don't even remember what the sets name is. These little things hold 4 starbursts and are a great little Valentine!

Bella Birthday swap

This is a "Bella Birthday" swap that I am in. You cant tell too much from the photo but the presents are raised with foam dots. It added dimension to the card. I also used Stickles on the belt. I finally found those darn things at Frugalities(gotta check out that site!) I am thinking that there is still something missing in the upper right and left corners of the card but I can seem to decide what to put there if anything at all.

Our new Home away from home

Craig and I are so excited. We got our first brand new (well 2005) camping trailer. We are going to be on the road all summer, well when we dont have to work that is! The cooloest thing about this Trailer is the beds pop out on each end and they are like queen size and both have heated matress's. Too cool! I even have a table inside that I can take my scrapbooking stuff along with me and work on my pages. Oh the possibilities!

My visit with Roz

I had a nice visit with Roz when she made a trip to Cali. Craig and I met her and her son David in San Francisco . The picture of me is on Lombard street(the crookedest road in the world) I hope I spelled that right. Wait, is crookedest even a word? Anyways, and the picture of Roz and I has Alcatraz in the background.

It's official, I've become my mother

I just love this little lady and the saying is so perfect!

Brando's soda fountain

ok, I had to post this. Brandon got this in his Christmas stocking and he just couldnt wait to paly with it. What you do is get a bottle of soda(diet of course, we dont want ants) then you put on this plastic thing a ma jig and add mint Mentos into it then pull the string and it drops the mentos into the bottle and then you have a stream of fizzy soda. We actually wanted to see it explode but we pretty much just got a fountain of soda. Anything that makes a mess you will find my child happy as can be!!

Darling "Jammybella"

I am posting jammybella as my first photo on my new blog! I love how this card turned out. I just started throwing it together and I think it turned out really cute! I am so hooked on Bellas, Just cant get enough!
