I just can't get a good enough picture of the icicles. They look so real in real life! I can't wait to do more with them. I don't know where I got this poinsettia file...but it sure turned out cute. I don't care for poinsettias so that's saying a lot!
Have a great Tuesday!!

I worked on this for what seems like forever. Everyday I stared at it with no idea what I wanted to do with it. Today it all just fell right into place. I designed the icicles in SCAL. Cut them out with Acetate and stickled them. BAD idea! Once dry the stickles flaked right off!! I stickled them again and covered them in Judi Kins Diamond Glaze. PERFECT!! Here's a little piece of the layout. Full picture tomorrow when I can take it outside. I had to scan this bit just to get it too look right...ugh!
I'm such a procrastinator! No matter how soon I get started so I'm ahead of the game - I somehow end up a last minute mailer...every single year! UGH!!!!
I did add some stickles to the snowflakes after having taken the picture and it really looked not as simple. I just love that Santa stamp!
Hope you all have a great week! I will be wrapping and baking mine away!!

When the big boys were little I always decorated a tree and put in their rooms. I was so excited to do this for Tobias too! Last year he had all baby stuff on his tree and his topper was a baby bottle. So cute. This year tho...that wouldn't quite fit. So! I decided to make his ornaments with my cricut and decorate his tree in his favorite "Mo Mo". Can you believe we didn't have any red lights here?! I had to get them on Ebay and pay 8 dollars for 35 lights!! YIKES!! All in all I think it turned out pretty cute. I used Sesame Stree Friends, Elmos's Party and Sesame Street Font.
Have a good weekend!!

I made this card for a dear friend and her family. She has cats and loves them and her Don loves to fish so what better card could there be?! I think it turned out pretty darn cute!!
~*~ Tobias had his surgery today. It went very well. The Dr. could NOT find ANYTHING unusual once he got in there except a muscle seems to be thickened and he's thinking that is whats causing the knot. I need to speak with Tobias' Dr. and just make sure this matches up with the sonogram where they confirmed the lymph node and then I'll be happy this nightmare is over and it turned out to be NOTHING!! ~*~
Hope you all have a great evening!!

Just wanted to share a photo of my baby "making" (more like eating) his first batch of cookies. He tasted a bit of everything but he loved the brown sugar (EWW!) the most and his face is just priceless when it comes to the chocolate chips! Over look his jammies he just had a nap and I promise they do fit him...his belly hangs out because Bub was helping him stand on the chair.

Not my favorite one...It seems plain and I'm not sure why...any how this is one is for my mom. I'm going to make one more...and then I'm done.
I've made a layout of Trev when he was little and playing in snow and made a snow globe ...it looks pretty cute!! Will post that tomorrow probably!!
Have a great week!

OK maybe I'm becoming addicted...
My brother and nieces and nephews really like getting my cards (yay!) So this one is for them. I hope they'll love it. It's my favorite so far!
I added the green background one...I'm not sure if it shows it off better or not :-S I need to stop playing and make dinner!

I shed a lot of tears making this layout. My mom's boss' daughter's 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer a month ago and she passed away Wednesday night. I just can't imagine and it's so horrible to think about. They are donating a tree and ornaments in the little girls honor to the Ronald McDonald house and taking pictures and making a scrapbook. This page will be the first page in the scrapbook. I hope I never have to make another page like this one...
Hug and kiss your little ones because tomorrow isn't promised...unfortunately.
Hope you all have a good weekend.

These are last years Christmas pictures of Tobias Zadoc. He LOVED the Christmas tree and is always so cooperative with the camera...too much sometimes even! I used one of Beggahuna's sketches. I LOVE her work! (click her name and it will take you to her sketchs) and the paper is My Minds Eye.
Hope you all are having a great week!
