St. Lucia

I made this for the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge. I also made it using the sketch at Pamela's World of Scrap.... (Actually, I already made a layout for this month's sketch so I used an older sketch so that I could enter twice.)

REDBOOK + L’Oréal Paris Happy Hour House Party Goodie Bags

When I saw that Simon Says Stamp had an Anything Goes Challenge, I had some motivation to get my 10 goodie bags ready for the
REDBOOK + L’Oréal Paris Happy Hour House Party that I am hosting this weekend.  I used my Cricut to cut out the purse and flower and then embossed the purse in my Sizzix machine.. The cellophane bags have a cute yellow design on them, too.  I thought they turned out pretty cute, and they were easier than I thought! I can't wait to host the party for my niece Julie and her friends. They need a little break from studying!!!

Thanks for looking!

Welcome Home New Baby

THE STORY:  the boys (my husband and son) had been begging for a dog ever since we moved into our new house.  The idea was that he wouldn't have to be left alone for long hours since we'd be so much closer to my husband's work, and he works from home often. Well, I kept saying "NO!" since I'm allergic. Steve (my husband) had been stalking Craig's list and the Humane Society and saw our Charlie's photo the second it was posted.  Well, I took one look at this little puppy's photo, and he was in our car one-half hour later--and he lived in the next town over....!!!!  Even though I do have the allergy problem, it is kinda worth it! He's such a sweetie (to us)!  Charlie has worked his way into all of our hearts, and we can't imagine life without him now!  I made it for the PageMaps challenge. Here's the sketch!

Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down...

Entering this at Simon Says ,,,,, April Showers and/or Spring Flowers using a sketch made by my friend Stacy... I don't love it, but it matches both challenges.

Our Little Sweetie

I used Pam's fun sketch challenge 223 to create this little layout of our puppy who is now quite a bit bigger!!! I created it at the suggestion of my friend at Garden of Grace to enter it into challenge 27 All God's Creatures at Scrapping Everyday Miracles challenge this month. The twist was to add a quote: I used is "You had me at Woof" which is a slight variation from a movie...

Most of the embellies I used were from Amy Tangerine's collection--I won it somewhere and can't remember where? sorry and thanks at the same time!

Anyway, have a great day!!!

Charlie in the Snow

Here is Charlie in the "snow."  Little did we know that we would have several blizzards after that and well into March!  Hopefully, spring will poke its head out soon seeing how today is the first day of APRIL!  Anyway, I made this for Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes. It is my third entry!
