PPA91- Button Challenge

Button, Button, who has the button? I do! Just one to accent Stampin' Up's new Triple Layer Punch! Oh.... and it's a fun punch too! I layered the flower on the Fancy Flower Xtra Large Punch in Baja Breeze! This card is also a great way to use up scraps of your Designer Paper! I punched squares and then adhered them to plain white paper and used the Big Shot Top Die to create a quilted effect. I like the color combo of Concord Crush and the Certainly Celery- it's different but it works! It's fun to play at the PPA!

I did some Easter cards this year and I hope everyone received them on time! I'll have to get those posted too. Here are some more Christmas scrapbook pages- gosh, the weather is so nice now and Christmas seems so long ago!

Tonight I have some gals coming over and we are making some items for my niece's wedding shower. I'm looking forward to chatting and creating masterpieces from paper!

Love to all!

PPA89! My daughter Jackie created the flower centerpieces for a shower and then I added the watering can candy holders. We used the Scallop Punch to mount the stamped flowers and added Rhinestone Brads for the centers. The Scallop Punch was used again and then cut with a scissors to create "petals". It's fun to play at the PPA!

Finally! Christmas Scrapbooking!

I'm finally getting through the Christmas pics of 2010! Lots of snow and hot chocolate, family gatherings and festive events marked a great ending to a wonderful year. Most of the paper is from the Martha Stewart Collection. The snowflake embellishments are so easy to create when you use the Snowflake #2 die and the snowflake punch- add a red rhinestone brad and you're done! Those are easy to use on cards too! I hope you like the layouts and feel free to use them when you scrapbook. They'll work for any season! Thanks for looking!

Children's Museum in Indianapolis

I had the honor and the pleasure of accompanying Amy and boys (my grandsons) to the Children's Museum in Indianapolis. We had a great time digging for dinosaur bones, exploring a construction site, viewing costumes from classic movies and of course....eating lunch! It was a great way to spend the day. The photos include Bumblebee from the movie Transformers! A fun day was had by all!

Princess Pigtails!

I can't wait to scrapbook these photos! Who is that naughty mommy putting bunny ears or devil horns on my sweet grand daughter? Anyhoo, had a busy day yesterday. Took the day off to help my youngest daughter get ready for her post-natal doctor appointment and had the honor of watching 5 week old Mason. He sure is a cutie! He loves to bounce and your arms! Don't dare sit down or he'll let me know who is the boss....and it's not me!! He is smiling more and more and he'll try and talk to you too! He's adorable! After watching Mason and enjoying a lovely lunch from Panera....thank you Jackie...... I drove to pick up Miss Anna from Daycare and took her to the Dr. She had a double ear infection. Poor cutie pie! She has medicine now and should get better soon.

Hope to get scrapbooking and posting some more cards soon!

Love to all.

Jackie's New Car!

Jackie had some fun while Anna was checking out her aunt's new car! It was the perfect moment to capture the shenanigans and scrapbook it! The printed paper is from Target's Dollar spot and the beautiful solid shades of plum are from a local scrapbooking store. I made the embellishment from a sizzix die and the sparkly strips & picture corners are from Doodle Bug. Sizzix had a website that has an outlet and girls....... most of the stuff is marked 50-80% off! I got a really nice set of alphabet dies for only $19.99!!! I can't wait to use it! I'm getting caught up slowly but surely and will be making more cards soon!

Stay tuned for some really good deals and sneak peeks from the new 2011 Catalog!

Happy Scrapbooking to all!
