My Son is in his Senior Year

I made this for the Frosted Designs' Fabulous Friday Challenge - Something New! Everything with the exception of the brad on the Congrats tag is the new Chap line from American Crafts! I love it!

Thanks for visiting!

Family- Word of the Year

I made this layout for Scrapfit's Workout #57 Word of the Year.  I chose "Family" and fortunately this also qualifies for  Simon Says Stamp's anything goes challenge! I love those. I used some new things my hubby got me for Christmas--the spellbinders label die, the Tim Holtz leaves dies and the Tim Holtz wood-grain embossing folder!

Thanks for visiting! I'm going to be doing a lot more scrapbooking soon. I think I have my mojo back!!!!

Crafter's Companion Sparkle Challenge

This is one my sister made:

Shabby Apple Dress

This is my beautiful niece with a GORGEOUS dress from Shabby Apple that I was so excited to win on We Were Damsel's blog for her!  My niece is so pretty-and this was after she had worked all day at a busy place!  It is even prettier in person! It is so nicely made, too!  It looks a little shimmery in person and is lined with a nice silky feeling fabric! I never wanted to win something so badly as this dress for my niece.  It came at the perfect time with all of the holiday festivities! This is really a classy dress at a very great price! I highly recommend the dress for quality and looks!

Thanks for visiting! I'll be back later with a layout!!!!

NOTICE:  I won the dress but was not asked to do a review. The opinions are my own. I would never recommend something that I would not love myself!!!!

The Massman Side of the Family

We had family photos taken this year on the Massman side of the family! This is the first scrapping I've done in a long time. So, excuse the wonky photo!  It is straight in real life!  I made it for my friend Stacy's challenge.  If you have never done one of Stacy's challenges, you should give it a try.  The odds are good that you would win one of her wonderful prizes!  I made another layout that I will post later.

thanks for visiting!

Massman Grandkids

Do you Ever Picture Something in Your Mind? And, then you make the layout, and it is NOTHING like you imagined yet you have no idea how to get it there. Well, considering I haven't really scrapped at all this month, I'm just going to run with it! I used Sketchy Thursday's sketch for this week as well as a challenge at Scrapfit to use small photos! At least I did those two things anyway!

Hope you are having a wonderful week and aren't stressing over the holidays!

Thanks for visiting!

Book Page Ornament

Here's a cute ornament made from book pages (when the book has fallen apart beyond repair)! I made it at the library! I thought it turned out cute! I made it for The Paper Variety's Anything Goes challenge as well as the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World--I used the colors in the prompt as well as the feathery look the book circles made for it!!!

I haven't been crafting much lately-mainly making hand-made ornaments! I'd love to do some scrapbooking soon, but I spend so much time doing them that I just haven't had the chance! Too busy I guess! :-)

Well, thanks so much for visiting my blog today!

Quick, Cute Christmas ornaments

I made these little ornaments for The Paper Variety's challenge to show them your ornaments and for my friend Stacy's challenge! The tree has some Ranger distress ink on it, but I thought they looked cute plain, too!

Thanks for visiting!

Shabby Bicycle

Here is a shabby bicycle card that I made for Simon Says Stamp Challenge - anything goes! I "taught" this card to my stamp club as it was my month. The patterned paper is sparkly and is from SEI. I cut the flowers from my sizzix, using an old pair of jeans from my husband and some felt.  I sprayed the felt with some Mr. Huey Mist to match the card better. The stamp is CTMH, and I colored it with my water color pencils.

Thanks for visiting! I really appreciate it!
