Father's Day LOVE!
Happy Father's Day to all the AMAZING Dad's out there! Happy Father's Day to my AMAZING dad and Bonus Dad! How blessed I have been to have not just one man always watching out for me and caring for me, and guiding me through life. Warning me of boys and caring for my tears along my lifes journey and lifting me back up. Making me feel like a princess my whole life! I am blessed to have had two FABULOUS men give me lifes foundation to be confident in being true to me always! I want to give honor to them every day! The bummer of this day...is I don't get to be with either of them in person...However, even with the distance, we have a strong bond. I am blessed to say they are both still alive and healthy so I am able to send love their way today.
and yet I am still blessed to have an AMAZING Father in Law to love and make me feel welcome always. I get to spend the day with him today...and that is special to my heart that words can not fully describe my gratitude for him as well.
The supplies used in making these cards are all from the new The Pier line from Crate paper...Lahooooooooooove this line! This line is PERFECT for a combination of masculine and Femanine...I LOVE that!
On a side note...How are you with apps for your phone? I'm kind of a nut for them...LOVE my photography apps. Love ALL of my apps. My favorite is Jesus Calling devotionals...totally AWESOME way to start my day! :)
There is another AWESOME new app that my girlfriend Kirsten told me about. It incrypts your phone and conversations, so they can't be monitored by the government. I don't know about you, but I don't like the idea of a complete stranger being able to listen in on my conversations, or read my txts or see my data and pictures. It's Called Seecrypt.com! Check it out! WAY worth it! :) I believe everyone should be aware of this.
Have a BEAUTIFUL
Happy Father's Day
Have a beautiful and blessed day with love and family surrounding you!
I love finding fun new creative ways to do title work...so this post is a little snip of how I come up with different ways to do just that...
Also see it here at Got Sketch Blog too! :)
I couldn't just stop with one layout with the AWESOME new Maggie Holmes line for Crate Paper...I Lahoooooooove it! Look at how beautifully it all works together? All the fun vintage, and hip colors...I can't get enough honestly! My new fav! Also loving these darling flair buttons by Panda Eight Designs!
Having a great week with my girl...We spent the entire day with her whole class up at Whitefish Mountain Resort cheering on the Special Olymics games. It was so AMAZING! I am so proud of being a part of this class. Mrs Emsley is so wonderful to share her passion and teaching our children the importance of compassion and love for these special people that is so needed...children and adults alike. It was truly AMAZING!
Olivia's class playing in the snow after lunch break.
Girls covered in snow! LOVE it! :)
Now for one more little shout out. Like many of us crafters out there, I've been on the hunt for YEARS to find a good trimmer that is cuts accurately! That is easy to use and consistantly good! I finally found it...and I felt the need to share this info with you all too. The Price is AWESOME to boot! 49.99 :) So if you are in need of a new trimmer, or you just want to have a good one finally...this is my #1 of all time! American Crafts... CutUp Cartridge Trimmer...
I'm also super excited to share that I've had 2 clients request hats from me...and I got to use my new little fun tags that my sweet friend Diane Payne sent me for my birthday! (Love them!) The hats that were sold, you can view in the above picture of me and Olivia. I am wearing the hat and have made a duplicate one like mine, and in the process of making a black one now for my other client. :) This makes me happy! This just might turn into something! Kind of excited at the idea...and just going with it. :)
That about sums up this post for now...and thanks for visiting! Have a super blessed rest of your week! Think good thoughts! :)
Welcome to the American Crafts Valentine's Day Blog Hop!
Here is the love-themed layout I made using mostly XOXO supplies:
I kept this simple, with very little journaling, and spent more time with designing a fun background to compliment this sweet photograph of my son and daughter. I chose to make this photograph BW since the background is full of wonderful bright colors. I wanted the photograph to pop off the page and not conflict with all the background design.
I created the fun border and hearts using my Silhouette cutting machine, with the patterned papers.
I too have decided to provide this fun hop with a give away of my own.:)
and I'll randomly select a winner to receive this assortment of American Crafts goodies.
February 20th 2013
Here is the full list of participants for your hopping pleasure:

Hello to all my favorite people! :)
I can't believe Fall is here...where does the time go?
I've been having tons of fun creating with my favorite lines of paper! I love creating different ways to use paper on my pages! :)
Today is my first Tutorial post for Crate Paper...come on over and take a look! :)
Here's a little sneak of what I created:
Crate Paper also had a team up with PageMaps this month too...and I got to create this happy layout with their AWESOME sketch! :) I LOVE this layout, and the pictures of Olivia and my niece Marilyn! They have the sweetest little bond and it shows in all of the pictures I've captured of them!
I've also been working on the New Bella Blvd lines as well...Stop by the blog to see more details and what the other talented girls have created. :)
With all the Back to school rush going on, I've been a tad busier than normal, but I love it!
I have a little something else up my sleeve, that I can share on Friday too! Stay tuned! :) This is all I can share for now! ;) xx
Have a great rest of your week!
Back to my craft table for more fun!
Think good thoughts!
Just got back from AZ, where me and the kids had a great time hanging out together, minus Noelly.
Decked out for Seahawks game
Back home and taking pictures at the School playground...Love this playground for pictures!
Olivia and her girlfriend True
We are just about ready for going back to school. Getting all our last minute crazy fun free time out of our systems.
Here is a layout I created for Bella Blvd Creative Wednesday
and here are a couple of sneaks...I've been playing!
Also still at it knitting...finished a cover for my Dad for his birthday...Lahoove how it turned out. :)
I did something crazy this past week. My all time favorite lipstick was not at Ulta, or even on their website! I kind of freaked out, and went to the Urban Decay website to see if I could possibly get it there. Guess what? It was on sale from $22 to $8...so I got 10!!! I don't know what I will do when they run out, but hopefully I will be over it by that time! LOL. Do you ever do crazy things like this?
Now back to creating...and cleaning...and processing more photographs. Stay tuned!
Hope you all are being blessed!
It has been a crazy busy last few weeks here for me.
Busy taking pictures...
Busy editing and playing with pictures..
Busy working outside...
Back to school preperations...
Busy working at the Salon a couple days a week (Friday and Sat)...Lately there have been a LOT of wedding's, so I've been doing a TON of up-do's...which I LOVE doing! :)
In my spare time I knit too! Ha! If you are on Ravelry...here is where you can find me and my latest creations...oh and don't forget to friend me too! xx
I LOVE all my jobs...but my favorite of all time...is my Mom duties! :)
So, I wanted to share some sneaks of what I've been up to...
