This is a story of who I am, where I've been and what I've been doing and with whom. It's a picture into my world with my family and friends (old and new). Working with my crafts , scrapbooking, and cardmaking.

Just wanted to share this mug of hot cocoa. I don't know where I saw this or if it was just my idea. I cut the mug out with a template and then used score tape to glue the side and bottom. Stamped the cocoa mug and punched it out. I gave the marshmellows a going over with my gelly roll clear star. I don't know what I would do without these pens. I used a seasonal paper to cover a packet of swiss miss and then applied a pull tag. I added a candy cane with a bow and it was finished.
I made 25 of these to give away at the all day scrap and a few extra .
Sorry I've been away. But I have been busy. These are Christmas ornaments that I made to give out to everyone that attended my all day scrap. They were so easy to make, just glue the ends of two tags, score and the attach a Ghirardelli inside. Fold the ends up and tie a ribbon and attach a tag to the front.
Christmas card from class. It's hard to see but the white is embossed with snowflakes. The four squares are layered and popped up. I love to use this layout.
More cards from class. The snowman with the light blue has been versa-marked, with a
torn piece of pattered paper on top. The snowman was stamped in StazOn and filled in with glitter pens. I did the outside of the snowman and the snow with Gelly Roll Clear Star. This gives it a shimmer and shine and really makes it pop. The cardinal was stamped and then wet embossed with black. Everthing was colored in with markers. This was all done on a sizzix top note die cutout. The Merry Christmas was also wet embossed in gold.
My first card added to my blog. The stamp is by Northwoods. I used Flower Soft for the snow. If you haven't used this product you really need to give it a try. I loved using it. Paper is Bazzill and I used colored pencils.
Welcome to my new blog. I will try to post daily, so stop by often and check it out. First thing on my mind is my ALL DAY SCRAP , this will be held on Nov. 21. I only have a few spots left so sign up early. It's going to be a fun filled day and everyone will walk away a winner. Sign up and you'll find out how. It's three in the afternoon and I just got this up and running, hoping to add more to it later.
I am married to a wonderful guy who is my best friend. He is my strength. I also have two beautiful daughters and they have given me five beautiful grandaughters. They are my life. So I have alot to scrap about and love doing so.
