ScrapLifting again...

OK - well - inspiration has left me this week... after not feeling so great off and on all week I decided I really did want to create SOMETHING! It didn't hurt that I realized that I have a graduation to go to next week and actually NEEDED to make at least a card... however, I was coming up with nothing! So - a friend sent me a link to the ever helpful Scrapbooks, etc website with a gallery of grad card ideas! I fell for the very first one! I liked a lot of them - but I have been having this thing with butterflies as of late - so it was a no brainer! Of course - I am not buying supplies if I can help it - so I had to tweak it a bit with what I had on hand! Thanks Michele for the helpful ideas and reminding me that I do, in fact, own a Cricut!?

Here is my version...

Not much else got accomplished today... French Open is on and as always, tennis grabs my attention when it is on TV - because, well - it's so rarely on!? I hope to get back in the crafty groove soon... what have you all been working on?

Scrap Happy!

Flower Pot Cards

Hey all...

Well - I thought I would share a few pix from our daughters' birthday dinner... she picked Red Robin and we gave her that adorable little gift Card holder with the iTunes card, and the Starbucks card, and - oh yes - the Driving School Course pledge! She was a happy happy girl!

Today with the Sisserhood, my sweet deer friend De led us in another ADORABLE project - the Flower Pot Card! Oh so fun... Oh so Easy (I promise!)... and, as you can see... Oh so Adorable!

I'm off for now...
Scrap Happy!

A Busy Month for Birthdays (& other Card Occasions!)

Wow... we have a LOT of Birthdays in May... and throw in Mother's Day, and then a few "Blank Inside" cards and I was a busy, busy crafter last Friday! I pulled some inspiration from an issue of B&Gs "scrapbooks, etc." - I forgot how much I LOVE that magazine!? I haven't done a lot of scrapping this year hands on (but all digi) so it was nice to get out the supplies and play a bit! I have one project unfinished... but completed all my cards on Friday and one project!

Here is what I was able to create:

LOVE the Birthday card/Gift Card Holder... so fun!!! Sssh - we haven't given it to her yet - so she knows nothing of the gifts - we're taking her out to dinner tonight and she'll get to open it then! I am sure she will be so excited! Anyway, I also LOVED being hands on again... uh-oh!? I better find another project or two or I will cave and give in on my idea of going all digi this year?!

Scrap Happy my friends!

P.S. While my girlie was at school - I got to play a little in her room too... this is what she came home to:

Gotta love a Chalkboard Wall!!!

National Scrapbook Day = A Great Style Mini!!!

Wow... I can't believe it's true - but it is! I hadn't done any hands on old school scrapbooking since early January of this year! Since my goal is to do this years' family album all digitally - I just haven't printed any photos at all! I have played a tiny bit here and there doing a few LOs
digitally but the only hands on crafts have been cards. Yesterday during my online chat with the Sisserhood of the Traveling Crops, I decided I wanted to make a little Mini featuring the photo's from my day spent with Ruby Gettinger! They gave us little Goodie bags at the Season Finale and I wanted to use the mini bag and fit the scrapbook inside... while (shocker!?) I didn't get much done yesterday - I did manage to finish it up this morning! I love it!

Here's a look-see:

Don't forget... Ruby's season finale is tomorrow, Sunday May 2nd, on Style Network! It is a 2 hour finale and MAN is it good! So powerful and emotional and insightful... as an added bonus - there will be some Yakima footage as well and who can know but little ole' me may be spotted as well!? I don't know for sure - I am just sayin' - wherever she was, there we were! LOL! So there IS a good chance?

Scrap Happy!
