Good Monday Morning my scrappy friends!  As most of you know, if you have watched my YouTube vids and some of my posts, I am a huge fan of Die Cuts with a View paper!!! I love their stacks, from the 12 x 12 to their wonderful mat stacks, which are great for a scrapper like me, who sometimes can't measure to save her life!  Over at the Die Cuts with a View blog, they had a challenge layout, which they provided a page map and you the scrapper took it from there.  Here is a picture of the layout that I created:

I used the Fun in the Sun Summer Stack and my Cricut with the Plantin School cartridge to create this layout of my oldest son, Kieth when he played Little League. 

I hope you all like the layout and I am wishing you all a scrapdacular day!

Happy scrappy Saturday to all of my scrappy friends!  I have been working on some projects in my scrappin place.  I am doing my very first stamped image swap, so that is all done and I just have to send them in the mail!  Now I have also been working on a layout and card challenge over at Creating the Crafty Life.  I must admit, these weekly challenges have been great.  I have actually done some 12 X 12 layouts, which I love!
The card challenges are a real challenge for me, as I am not a card maker. So here is the card I made for the challenge this week:
DCWV card
Harvest & Holiday stack by Debbie Mumm
Inkiadinkado Stamp
Cricut Storybook
Tim Holtz Barn Hinge and Walnut Stain Ink

Now for the layout challenge.  I know that you all must be getting pretty tired of looking at pictures of me, but I really wanted to get these pics on layouts.  So here we go:

DCWV Flower Power Spring Stack
Cricut A Child's Year
I Am Roses
Tattered Angel Chalkboard Glimmer Mist, Strawberry Shortcake
Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Ramblin Rose

I was adopted by my parents when I was 2 months old and these pics are ones my mom had taken while she and my Dad were feeding me.  I had been with them 3 days and of couse, my Mom had to take them while I had food all over me!

Hope you all enjoy the projects that I have made.  Wishing you all a scrapdacular weekend!
Scrappy Hugs!

Good Evening my scrappy friends!  Finally able to post!! It is hard when not only one, but both puters go on the fritz! I have some exciting news, or what I feel is exciting! I am member of Little Scrap of Heaven and they had a blog hop of major porportions!  I was lucky enough to win a beautiful Graphic 45 altered box, which Fernlintner65, that is her YouTube channel name, made for the hop.  It is lovely!  I was also chosen on the Creating the Crafty Life for last week's card challenge and won some great trims from MB Treasurista!  If you all have not seen her wonderful trims, you need to!  You can purchase her wonderful goodies at

Now for some of my creations!  Here is a card that I made for the card challenge over at Creating the Crafty Life:

Here is the list of items that I used to create this Halloween card:
Debbie Mumms Harvest and Holiday Stack
Seasonal Stamps
Black Ink
Jolene Pumpkin Embellie

I am not really a card maker, but I am really attempting to become one.  I am sure I will get better with every challenge.

Now, as you all know, I love, love and love creating 12 x 12 layouts.  Again this was for the Layout challenge over at Creating the Crafty Life:
What can I say, I am and always will be a Daddy's girl.  I was almost 2 years old in this particular picture, which was taken at a party that my parents had.  I call this LO, "Princess in PJ's", which I have not put on the layout yet, as I am still looking for the right font to use.  Here is a list of the items I used to create this layout:
Die Cuts with a View
Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Lace from Ebay (which I am hoarding at the present time, as I have not seen it on Ebay since I purchased it)

I hope you all enjoy these projects as much as I enjoyed creating them!  Hope you all have a scrapdacular night!
Scrappy Hugs,

Happy Friday, my scrappy friends!  I am currently working on some challenges over at Creating the Crafty Life.  Cards are a real challenge for me, as I just am not sure if they are good or not.  So here is my attempt at the Card Challenge:

Here is a list of the supplies I used to make this card:

12x6 red card stock from my stash
Echo Park - A walk in the park 6x6 papers
Neehan paper for the sentiment and stamped image
Prisma pencils and gamasol

I will be back a little later with the layout challenge.  Hope you all have a scraptacular day!

When it rains, it pours my scrappy friends!  LOL!  The reason for the absents from my blog is both of the computers in our household went crash!  What a nightmare!  Well we now have the desktop all fixed, but my laptop is on the waiting list to be fixed.  I will be posting some creations a little later today from the scrappin place.
