Another Challenge! OCCSC13

Hi everybody!! I hope you are all having a great day. The weekend is in sight and boy am I looking forward to it.

Here is my submission for OCCSC13. I have been doing so much "cute" recently, I decided to change it up a bit. Hope you like it!!

I love these papers by Basic Grey and the oval cut from the Wild Card cartridge. I inked it up with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then did several layers of UTEE on it.  It's super glossy in person!!

As always, thanks for stopping by my little piece of the world!

Poodle Purse

Hi there!!

I wanted to participate in the Cuttlebug Challenge today and make a purse. I knew I was going to use Create a Critter again and I knew exactly which paper I was going to use. I LOVE a well thought out plan!!

This is what I came up with...
I think it is so darn cute!! But, do you see anything missing...??.......ummm yeah...I forgot to incorporate the cuttlebug!! Soooooo, I won't post it over at the Cuttlebug Challenge. I'll just post it here for you to look at :)
You should hop over there though.....there are some AMAZING realistic purses pictured by the design team!

Hope you are having a great Wednesday!

UPDATE!!!! This fits right in with Cricutters Anonymous #35, so I'm gonna post it there. waste afterall!!

A blog award from Dawn!

Dawn from Dawn's Additction passed a blog award on to me! Thank you so much Dawn, that was super sweet to think of me. Be sure to check out Dawn's blog, there is a little bit of everything over there.

So, it looks like I am supposed to pass this award on to 5 bloggers and list 10 things that make me happy. You know, things that make me happy change..sometimes on a daily basis! However, there are a few things that never change. But wait, I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's do the 5 bloggers first.

1. Beth @ Runs with Scraps (duh!)
2. Tracy @ I wanna build a memory (duh again)
3. Janie @ Typical Scrapbooker (, you get the idea here)
4. Jan @ Chai tea 'n me (the fastest card maker in the west!)
5. Steph @ Sweet craf-tea chick (her name says it ALL!)

All of you ladies inspire me and are a source of MAJOR encouragement/support. Thank you so much!!

Okay, now on to the 10 things...

1. My husband, he is truly an amazing man. He makes me feel loved and adored everyday!

2. My kids, even though my son has lost his mind in puberty land right now!

3. My dogs, they keep me company. They keep my feet warm. They always give me kisses when they can sense that I'm having a rough time.

4.  Steak and shrimp fajitas with a house margarita from The Loop still makes me happy!

5. Rides on the Harley still excite me. The world is an amazing place from the back of a MC! Did you know that you can sleep, read, and eat icecream cones on the back of an MC? Yep, you can...all while holding your chihuahua!!

6. Coffee! It makes me really happy....and the people around me are really happy when I drink it too!! My husband makes me coffee everyday and on the weekends he even delivers!

7. My volunteer work, both with National Mill Dog Rescue and Junior Achievement.

8. Cooking. I love to cook, always have for as long as I can remember. We sit down and have dinner together at the table, as a family, no tv, no cell phones at least 5 night a week.

9. Knowing that I am going on vacation very very soon!! I am so excited about this trip, a little stressed about the prep, but sill super excited.

10. CRAFTING!! You know I can't leave that out. I love reading about, shopping for, blog and youtube surfing, learning about, and doing crafts....mostly paper crafts.

Thanks again Dawn for this award!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day.

Hi again.....2 posts in one day!!
I wanted to post this yesterday but I had to wait until I had permission to post it. It contains pictures of the little girl that I nanny for and I didn't want to put it up until her mom said it was ok. Well, she gave me a thumbs up this morning and so here it is. Actually, I hope she doesn't see this because it's her Mother's Day gift!! This is a super fun project and if you have never made one you should give it a go. I have printed instructions so if you are interested, email me and I can send them to you!! I'm submitting this into the Paper Cutz Challenge #38. It also fits right in with Papertake Weekly.

Here is the front....looks like a regular card.....right? (create a critter again..told ya I love it!)

Now this is what happens when you untie the bow and open it.......

There is room for 3 full size photos and two smaller ones...if you wanted to get really tiny, there are several places for more. Isn't she adorable!!?!!

My Crafty Beginnings...

I just thought I would share a picture with you guys today to show you where my love for all things crafty started to really take shape. I always loved arts and crafts as a kid, you name it...I tried it. I really loved to color, actually I still do :)

Then when I was 11 years old I started taking oil painting lessons from the lady who lived across the street from us. I don't paint anymore, but sometimes I miss it.

This is a picture of the 1st painting I ever did. I was either 11 or 12 at the time, I'm not sure what month I did this. It doesn't currently hang in my house, sadly the frame got water damage on it during a move and I just have never had it re-done.
I hope you enjoy seeing where my true creativity started.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by my little piece of the world!

Sometimes it has to be CUTE!

Hello there!
I looked at the OCCSC12 sketch and I knew I wanted to do something with my new Create a Critter cricut cartridge. After thumbing through the book this little guy caught my eye, isn't he cute?? This might not be what the fine folks over at OCC had in mind, but sometimes you gotta think outta the box! (maybe not, maybe I'm just strange....nod if you agree...just don't say so in a comment.)

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album turned.....

GIFT CARD HOLDER!! Yep, my scrapping MeetUp group got together on Saturday to make toilet paper roll mini albums. As I was sitting there decorating mine, trying to figure out what pictures I would put in this hits me! The light bulb went off, the bells began to ring, singing was heard.....okay, maybe that is exaggerating..but an idea did come to me. These little cuties would hold a gift card perfectly. So, I took my grocery store club card out of my purse to try it out. Whadda ya did fit perfectly. So my mini album is a mini album no longer. These creations will be used for graduation cards and gifts all rolled into one. (Get it...toilet paper roll...rolled into one..??..anyone? okay maybe only funny to me)

I hope you like them as much as I do! 

Hope you are having a great day!
