I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

and Cut It Up has the perfect challenge for us!

My Project:
I used this awesome "Hot Drink" image from
Winter Frolic.

All my papers are from my scrap stash,
but are from American Crafts, Echo Park, and Recollections,
if my memory serves correctly.

The sentiment is from a set I picked up on
clearance from JoAnn's.

I hope that you will join us
over at Cut It Up for this challenge.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Winter Activities

Happy Monday!

Today over at BBTB2, a new challenge has
started all about Winter Activities -
Sledding, Skiing, Ice Skating,
none of which I am fond of ;)
I even live in Utah :o - LOL!

For my card I decided to create an invitation for
an Ice Skating activity the Young Women in my area are
going to be doing next month.

The skater comes from Winter Frolic
and my papers are from a pack I picked up at
a warehouse sale for American Crafts.

The sentiment is from a Fiskars set
and I topped it off with a fun glitter gem.

I hope you will join us this week over at BBTB2!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Elvis

Happy Monday!


I hope things have settled down for you all now that
the holidays are over and school is back in session...
I know it has for me :)

This week over at BBTB2
we are celebrating Elvis' Birthday :)

We want to see Elvis inspired projects.
I naturally pulled out my Nifty Fifties cart to search
for the cut I wanted to use and when I saw
this one I immediately thought
"Blue Suede Shoes".

One of my goals this year is to use as much scrap paper
as I can on my projects instead
of starting with new pieces,
so I can't tell you exactly where my b/g papers 
are from - you'll have to forgive me :)

The sentiment is from a Fiskars set.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 for this fun challenge!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
