"Laugh" layout

Hey Yall,

This is one colorful layout! I wanted to use all the photos to make a "slide show" type layout....this is how it came out!

Background paper - Recollection (its shimmery)
Pattern paper - Doodlebug Designs Inc. "boys only"
Green papers - LilyBee Designs "Victoria Park"
Stripes and butterflies are made from washi tape.  The white butter flies are from my stash.  The washi tape ones...I covers a piece of paper with strips of washi tape and used a Martha Steward punch to punch them out.
I doodled with a brown pen.  The banners are from 1 inch circles folded in half and hung on juke.
Letters - Thickers "Daydream"
This had to be only my 2nd layout in several years were I didn't use Tim Holtz Distress Ink! LOL

I hope Yall like it!

I am Doe challenge

Hey Yall, made a really cute washi tape covered letter as home decor and wanted other to join! SO....I thought this is a fabulous idea and I had to join in on the fun!

How cut is this! I hope Yall join in on the fun over at  You get a $5.00 credit at the shop if you participate! How cool is that! More washi tape coming for me! LOL


My first "washi tape" card

Hey Yall,

I had to jump right in my craft room as soon as I opened my new "washi tapes."  I had been waiting for a reason (not that I really need one lol) to make a project with this camera.  So, this card is what happened.  I just love the way it came out!

Cricut Cartridge - "Create  A Critter"
Card Base - Kraft - 5 1/2 x 4
 Camera - 3 inches....Phrase - 1 1/2
Ink - Tim Holtz "Black Soot" Distress Ink
I popped the camera and the phrase up on pop dots to add some interest!
Of course - I love to doodle with a white jelly roll pen  :)
 I wanted to leave the inside blank because this is a great "go to"card for many occasions.
AND OF COURSE how could I not put little mice on the back! These cute stamps are from "Clear Dollar Stamps."  How Adorable!!! lol :)

I hope Yall like it!!!

Az-E Bear Layout

Hey Yall,

I had so much fun making this layout of my sweet little boy, Azland.  I have always called him "my Az-e bear" for the longest time so when I took this picture I knew what the title had to be! :)

The papers are all from LilyBee Designs (love them so much)
the white paint splatters is Gesso
I cut the triangle banner from a square punch and stung "juke" for the string
The stars are a Christmas garland I got for 1.00 at the Goodwill and cut them off of that string
I cut the tags out of a die cut I have
The title letters are from Recollections
**I entered this layout in the LilyBee June Sketch if Yall want to join in on the fun!!!

I hope Yall like it!!!

My new "Seweasy" Tool :)

Hey Yall,

I wanted to share mt new tool I just got today! Super excited about it.  I have been having my eye on it for a while now but did want to invest the money.  WELL...Michael's has a 50% off coupon this week so I was able to get started with out braking the bank! :)

 I DID NOT purchase the cutting mat....why spend the money when you can use something you already have.  SO....I had a piece of kids foam sheet and that worked PREFECT!.  You can also use a mouse pad :)  It was super easy and so much fun! I can't wait to use it on a layout!...or whatever :)
I hope Yall give it a try!
