Sweet Summer Fun

OK...I will admit that I buy Sydney outfits to match scrapbook paper. I loved this layout with her green and red summer top. She still loves to have her picture taken...so it is easy to come up with lots of layouts of her. I used my cricut for the letters and the melon. I also put some green rickrack between the layers of the melon...

BBTB Contest entry...Christmas memories

This is my second attempt for the BBTB Contest. I love these vintage cards. They are so much fun to work with.

I used a 5 by 7 card...added some striped Christmas paper. I cut the bottom of the red card stock with a Fiskars punch. I cut the snowflakes from my winter wonderland cartridge... at 1 inch.....inked the edges and added some ribbon. Done!

BBTB Contest...love you...to the moon and back.

Well today I decided to try to enter one of the wonderful contest that Regina offers on her Blog...Bitten by the Bug. I have never entered one of the contest, but I couldn't resist these darling vintage prints from Peggy loves vintage.

They are so cute and so much fun to work with....so I found a little vintage print in my stash of millions of papers...and used my cricut to cut the card from the Wild Card Cartridge.

I cut the card at 5 1/2 inches from my printed paper...then cut another one at 5 inches so I could use the solid blue to make a mat for my window.

The moon and stars are both cut from the New Arrival cartridge. I inked the edges of everything and that is about all. I hope you enjoy and please check out Bitten by the bug if you have not visited yet.

Halloween cards....

It's finally Friday...yay! I am getting together this evening with 3 scrapping friends and we are cropping for a few hours. Can't wait. I worked on Halloween cards last night and kind of got stuck on one stamp...but I love it, so I just worked on several witch's shoes. Can't decide "witch" is my favorite.

A Blue Star Day...

What a wonderful day. My friend Jeanne is a Blue Star Mom...she has a son retired from the military and a grandson going in...so she has been through it all. She works so hard for the local Blue Star organization...making cards and selling them for funds to use for soldier's goodie boxes.

Today instead of our usual Wednesday morning crop we helped her make cards to sell. We did Sixty cards in about 4 hours. That of course allowed for lunch! It was so little for us to do...but Jeanne was so excited. I hope we did some good today! Thank you to all our soldiers...
Good morning all...it is going to be a beautiful fall day in South Carolina. I do love this time of year. Cool in the mornings and warm and sunny in the afternoon. Well, enough of my weather talk....today is going to be a fun day! A group of friends are coming over this morning and we are doing cards for soldiers. My friend Jeanne is a Blue Star Mom and they sell them for a fundraiser. I will post some of our creations later today. Hope all have a wonderful day....come back and see me soon!

What would we do without girlfriends?

When six friends came to the beach for a long week-end we remembered what is really important in our lives...family...and girlfriends!

New 2 School!

I did this layout for the bitten by the bug contest. I used Locker Talk to cut the school desk and My Communtiy to cut the pencil. It was fun to do a layout of Sydney's grandparent's day. Thanks for looking....

Well...as you can see...my keeping up with a blog could be interesting. It has been a very busy summer. After lots of company and traveling I am trying to get back to my scrap booking and card making. I have done a few pages of the grand kids (of course) but getting them posted seems to be my problem. My new resolution is to make it and post it! We'll see how that goes.
Thank you for being patient...and I promise to do better!
