Old Point Loma Light

Point Loma in the San Diego, California, area is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been. And, we've seen a lot of places during our travels throughout the United States over the years! I literally had tears in my eyes when we drove along the road that parallels the ocean at Point Loma. I was happy to do this layout which I am entering in Simon Says ,,,,, Anything Goes :-)!!

Thanks so much for visiting! I'd love it if you stopped to say "hello" in the comments!!!

Christmas 2010 - Stuart and Leo, Teresa Collins Style

I love watching children play, and there is no better time to do it than when they are opening Christmas presents! I snapped these photos of my nephews at our house at Christmas last year.  I thought Teresa Collins' paper worked well for this layout even though it is so formal and vintage.  Did you notice that Leo is laying on a Radio Flyer box?  How much more vintage than that can you get?  Anyway, I made the layout for a Page Maps challenge that I would really love to win! They have a whole bunch of Mr. Huey Mists that they are giving away along with a whole bunch of other goodies!!!

I'm back to scrapping at my regular pace now!! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate it!

2010 Halloween - ESL Students

So, I made this layout of some of my ESL students. They had been trick-or-treating at my neighbor's house.  They had so much fun!  I made the spiders that are covering their faces at the same friend's house last night! They were so easy to make and so much fun!  I'll give some to my nephews and will probably wear some while handing out treats this year! Some are rings, and some have fairly flat backs, so I can even use them on my scrapbook pages or cards! Yay!  Anyway, I made this for The Paper Variety's challenge  this week!

Thanks for visiting! It makes my day! If you have time, leave me a comment so I know you were here! I haven't been visiting as many people lately since I've been on a little hiatus with my health and being really busy!   I got a good report yesterday on my legs! I was worried about one, but they said that the symptoms were normal and should go away!  I'll try to stop by soon if you leave me a comment!

The Old Point Loma Light

Here's a layout I did today using mostly Webster's Pages. I made it for Scrapfit'sWorkout #53 'The Journaling Goes Round & Round'.  I did my journaling around the two photos!  I cut the letters with my Cricut, added a few Martha Stewart butterflies, part of a ZVA crystals, and some Tattered Angels mist as well as my favorite Fiskar's border punch!

I hope this gets me back into crafting a bit more!!! I certainly have the photos!

Thanks for visiting! It makes my day!


10/20 UPDATE on Haylee's Treasure:  Steve is going to be making 18 scopes! That's a lot of backers to reward!!!! I can't wait until we get a copy of this book!!!!

P.S. My surgery went really well on my left leg, but my right leg is very bruised and seems to have something not quite right going on. I'm going to the office on Friday for an ultrasound. Hopefully, it is ok... I'm also hoping to craft today!

Haylee's Treasure is Saved!

Help Save Haylee's Treasure

I'm so happy that with less than 15 minutes to spare, Haylee's Treasure is saved and will be published! Steve will be making around 8 kaleidoscopes to be given to some of the backers! I can't wait to see this book in print!!!! :-) Yay!

I'm having surgery tomorrow and possibly again on Friday! It is supposed to be pretty routine with rare complications! Wish me luck! Hopefully, next week I'll be crafting again!!!!

Owl card

Now, isn't this a fun way to use a border? I didn't think of it on my own. A lady from my stamp club had us use this technique Thursday night! All you do is take a 3 inch square and punch each side in the center. Easy to do, easy to mail!!! I am entering it in The Paper Variety's challenge to include a forest friend and Simon Say's Stamp's use sparkle & bling challenge because I added Stickles to it!

Thanks for visiting!!! Have a great day!

Oh, where, oh where did my mojo go?

Oh, where, oh where, did it go?  I did this card using a S.W.A.L.K. Old Friend stamp for my friend Stacy's challenge and for the Crafter's Companion October friendship challenge.  Last month, I won a great prize with a random draw on a  really cute card I made. I'm just out of my mojo right now! I'm hoping to get it back soon! I haven't done anything crafty since 9/28!

Thanks for visiting. I'm hoping to get my mojo back soon!
