Hi Everyone!!!! I decided to use a PL card and sew..this was fun to make :) ..I also used the sketch from Sketch Saturday ..this card IRL is so bright :) ..since I have been PLing so much and trying to have Sunday be a sew only day..it has been a little crazy..I truly miss reading so I finally added that back into my life and found a few new authors and now I'm hooked on another series, so I find myself trying to find 5 minutes and read read read..loving it! ..I always say how fortunate that I am to have an amazing husband who takes such good care of me, where my hardest decisions are should I make a card, sew or PL ..I can't thank him enough and know that I am one of the lucky one's ..thank you honey and I love you so very much... I hope you like the card! have a great day!!! Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!
Hi Everyone!!!! this week was my son's back to school and birthday week..I'm pretty sure I say that a few times in my layout LOL! we stayed home so it was a very mellow time..but I hope to go out this week so I can have a few yummy pictures featured LOL! do you find yourself wanting to do different things so you can have some color or feel like you have some sort of life :) ..just me?? I also added a picture when he was just a few days old and his 1st birthday..I like how it turned out :) simple but sweet :) ..have a great day!!!! O almost all of it is from SU ..Everyday Adventure PL set #135298..
Hi Everyone!!! It felt good to make this card this morning using the Mojo Monday sketch..I'm showing you that you can use the PL embellishment kit for anything :) ..the sticker letters are from the Playground accessory pack #135303..didn't it work out perfectly? love it!! The DSP is Moonlight #133701 ..love the Blackberry Bliss color..I am off to PL :) ..have a great day!!!
Hi Everyone!!!! I can totally tell it's Tuesday because I'm sharing my PL weekly spread :) and I took these pictures under my set up for my YouTube videos and wow! what a difference! don't you think?? they came out so pretty..I think I can safely say we eat pretty good :) and if you are ever in Northern California we have the best sandwich place called Ike's..super duper fantastic!! always get their signature bread (Dutch Crust) and the Dirty Sauce..I'm drooling now..yummmmm! I used the Little Moments SU PL card collection kit..This is my tribute to the shocking news of Robin Williams death..These 3 movies are our favorites of his..Hopefully he has found peace...I also decided since I have some random photos laying around of my kids being goofy, that I will add one once in awhile..why not, it's my album LOL! do what you want ..no rules are needed or wanted..right!...Have a great day!!! Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!
Hi Everyone!!! I have set for myself a goal and that is every Sunday is now my sew day! I have found that I have been PLing so much that I haven't been quilting since May and that is not good..I need to use my fabric and my sewing desk has a layer of dust..Umm oops! so maybe that says that my cleaning duties have also been absent LOL! ..Last week is when I decided and I did it! I went into my sewing room and had so much fun! I loved it! I set myself a goal to get in there by 12:00..so that leaves me the morning to PL a little or make a card..and truth be told, play on the internet :) ..I have exactly 30 mins before I will go in there...so maybe I should clean up my mess from making this card ..The sketch is from Sketch Saturday ..I loved how it came out..I want to buy season passes for the Monterey Bay Aquarium so I had that on the brain :) ..I joined a group on FB and it is called Project Life Bucket List Documented..you are supposed to make a bucket list for 20 little things you want to do in a years time and PL your adventures and those season passes are on my BL..hopefully I can get them in the next month or two :) .. I love PL just in case you didn't know that by now LOL! ..in fact my son turns 16 on the 24th of this month and I have already PLed to his 6th birthday..I'm going to stop there and start on my daughter's, she's 21 but turns 22 in Dec so it will be fun to start hers too :) (sheesh, I'm just gabbing away aren't I) anyways I don't want to get burned out so I have done a bunch of different albums right now and having such a BLAST doing them..to see people at my son's birthday party and saying ..wow, I didn't know I was friends with these people has been quite fun LOL!!!! OK, enough chit chat..have a great day!!!!! Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!
Hi Everyone!!!! Doesn't this card remind you of taffy? or is it just me LOL! I used the sketch from Mojo Monday..Are any of you going to see Expendables 3 on Fri? I can't wait!! I'm an 80's girl so I swoon when I see these wrinkling old men teehee!! the 80's were so fun and simple back then.. :) ..anyways here's a little list of ingredients I used for the card: DSP Flowerpot #133698 Cycle Celebrations #130273 Flower Patch Bundle (FREE with a big shot purchase) #136788 Gorgeous Grunge #130517 Tiny Triangles #133740 Thank You!!!!

Hi Everyone!!! I just got done with my weekly layout and I love it! I don't have a busy life so I just take pictures of what we ate or what I baked...simple stuff :) ..heck you could easily take pictures of flowers and it would all be fun..so play!!! I did use some items from my "stash" because I can't get enough of Washi and Wood Veneers ..I thought the Love sentiment was perfect for my upside down bullies :) ..all of the bully pictures have been on Instagram since they have their own account..just hit that pretty Instagram picture on the top left and it will take you straight to them :) ..the PL kit I used was Everyday Adventure #135298 & #135301..if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask :) have a great day!! Thank You!!! Come Again!!!
Hi Everyone!!!! It felt good to make a card! my quilting has been non existent ..which is bad since I joined a quilt hop and I need to make 3 by Sept!! YIKES! but I'm telling you PL has ruled my days..Every time I see my pictures and my cards I SMILE and it is such a stress relief! love it! so anyways! onto the card..I used 2 challenges to make this card..1st one is from Mojo Monday love this sketch :) ..2nd is from The Friday Mashup..the challenge from them was to use the colors from the picture and use a wooden element..Super fun to come up with this :) I hope everyone has a great Friday!!!!..Also can you see the embossing folders I used? the dots are supposed to be seeds and the triangles are the shape of the watermelon slices in the picture, plus the black candy dots are also seeds but in color..get it???? LOL! I'm weird this way ;) Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!!
Hi Everyone!!! I love Project Life!! I have said that every week and every week when I am done with my layout I feel so happy. I have never been one to have a diary, mainly because I have always sucked at writing and grammar (who knew) ;) ..so this is my weekly diary for my grandchildren to see in the future. I love printing out my pictures at home every week and just taking the time to find the perfect embellishments. The layout is 99% Stampin Up and the rest is from my "stash" ..I just love it!!! I will be making a YouTube video showing you my album, just for a little inspiration if you so choose :) ..I used Playground for this layout. I did want to incorporate this line because some people don't have kids and I wanted to show you how versatile all the SU PL lines are, the school bus made me laugh because when I took the picture of the triplets I felt the were lined up so perfectly..just like waiting for the bus to arrive :) .....we bought some cupcakes and two of them had an apple as a decoration..well the apple PL card I felt was perfect! I did forget the arrow on the apple card :( ..I will be adding that asap :) ..Have a great day!!!
Hi Everyone!!! Funny story and I'm a dork..so we got invited to a wedding reception, it was a potluck. I wanted to bring 3 dishes, so I cooked all day on Saturday the reception was at 4:00pm ..at 3:30 I finally finished up the last dish and I thought.. O Man!!!! I don't have a card for them!!!! Didn't I mention in my last post how hot it is where I live?? well of course it was hot again..then you add in the oven being on all day and it was a sauna! I'm sweating like mad..I have to take a shower still and get dressed but since that's the easiest thing for me to do ..I waited till the last minute but now I have a problem because of this dang card..I run into my craft room and I'm scanning my stamp sets trying to figure out what will work for a wedding card and I have NOTHING! O boy! and I don't know their colors..so double drats! ..I just grab what I can and in 10 minutes I made this card!(and took a picture of it).. It's not my best work but since neither one of them are crafters I knew they wouldn't judge LOL!..so lo and behold ..we pack up the car and head to the reception..we arrive at 4:15 and walk to the doors with our arms full and guess what!? doors are locked! both Tim and I are looking at each other wondering if they moved the reception..we go back to the car and I call my daughter and she says ..let me look at my calendar on my phone..well duh! it's on my phone too..sooooooo here's where the brain fart comes in..the reception is on SUNDAY! not Saturday..I am a complete and utter DORK! WOW! ..luckily everything I made is even better the next day..wheewww! but talk about a mix up...OUI!!!! The End :) Thank You!!!!! Come Again!!!!!
Hi Everyone! I was going to post this yesterday but didn't have a chance...it is so hot where we live and it's miserable, so I try not to go outside..I'm surprised this picture isn't blurry :) I ran outside snapped a few shots and ran back in so fast! yuck! hate this weather! I can't wait for my favorite Fall and Winter :) ..this card was put together with an 80's theme in my head the whole time..If you find it in your heart to help my beloved Rocks out.. I sure would appreciate it..here's the link to his GoFundMe page..
