Last Nights Sunset

Hey Yall,

Yesterday evening we had a serious storm come through my area and this is what the sky looked like after it was gone.  I thought it was pretty cool looking and even better in person!

Special Thanks and a layout

Hey Yall,

I wanted to say THANK YOU to Echo Park for sending me my free "So Happy Together"Collection.  I won this from the contest on Facebook!  SWEET HUH!!!

SO......I made this layout using this collection! I usually don't make a layout with out a picture but this one really didn't need one!  My boyfriend told my son he loved him for the first time and my son said it back!  SUPER happy!!!!!  SO...of course I had to scrap it! LOL

 I also just purchased my first "Mister Huey's" and that is what you see in the back ground! I love them so much!  I used Taxi, Ross Lady, and Water Cooler!!!
 Popped the cloud up for some added dimension!
 I added washi tape OF COURSE LOL and made some straight lines with a brown pen and a ruler!
I hope Yall like the way it came out I sure do!  Thanks for stopping by!

"Bubble" Layout

Hey Yall,

One day my son found some bubble wrap in our art room and had soooo much fun playing with it!  I had to get the camera for this one.  AND  of course join in on the fun! LOL

Background and Orange Papers - LilyBee Designs "Head Over Heals" Collection
Blue Papers - October Afternoon
Tiny Letter and Triangles are from the same LilyBee Collection
I added washi tape and doodle with a brown pen

I usually don't use orange but I like the way this layout turned out.  I like the blue and orange together!  I hope Yall like it!


"He's Mad" Layout

Hey Yall,

I bought the Recollections "The Create Collection" and man oh man I am IN LOVE!!!!  I got the 12x12 stack and it comes with stickers, tags, and vellum pages! It is seriously awesome!  So...of course I can straight home and went to my at room! LOL I never use pink in a project for my son so this is a first for me! I actually love the way it came out!

 The only papers that are not from this paper stack are the pink one with the "Thickers" on it and the pink strip at the bottom!
The robot is a Recollection rub-on...super cute!  AND of course I added Washi Tape.

Hey Yall,

So I thought I would ask a funny question to help Yall get through the "Monday Blues."

**If you were a candy bar which one would you be and why???  lol

I would be a score bar....yummy on the outside but even better on the inside! (my heart is full of gold)

Hope Yall play along and have a fantastic Monday!!!!

Ship Wrecked Layout

Hey Yall,

My boy friend and I decided to get this cool ship to put together.  I love these type of ship.  They are so pretty and amazing to me! Well, after HE put it together :) and had such a hard time with all the string we both said never again!!! SO...in the pictures he is not too happy and aggravated but I had to take them anyway! lol

 Paper - 7gypsies
Tags - Basic Grey die cut shape pieces
Washi Tape (OMG I love this stuff)
I didn't use any distress ink this time which is crazy for me not too!!! :)
Thickers - foam (i love these little ones)
So I think the title is pretty appropriate considering we don't want to do this again! LOL

I hope Yall like it!!

Busy Busy Busy

Hey Yall,

I wanted to say HELLO to Yall.  Now that summer is in full force I have been busy busy busy.  By the time the evening rolls around I am pooped and cant focus to craft! Yes, I know....like that is really possible...but it has been lately!  Friends, family, and I have been having a yard sale the past 2 weeks (man I am over that), my son is now taking swimming lessons (yippee), and I am still trying to recover from foot surgery! ugh I am pooped. lol  Not to mention it is blazing hot here in the south!

I can't believe it but I registered my son for school today.  3 more weeks and school starts! WOWZA it went fast. SO...that means I will be squeezing in some fun in the next 3 weeks.  Don't worry though as soon as school is back in I will be posting more often! (i hope lol)

Anyhow, I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy summer!  I have a few upcoming surprises I can't wait to share with Yall! eeeekkkkkk exciting huh!!! Sooooo stay tuned!
