Happy New Year with a game....

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year. Hard to believe we are in 2011 in just a few hours.

Here at our house we stay safe inside. So we have game I figured with that being said a Memory game would be awesome to make. Here is my take on it....
I made the cuts from my cricut (george and basic shapes cartridge for the cards) Used various stamps and stamp pads. Then I used my cricut cartridge tags bags and boxes to cut the box. Used simple decorations that I 3d. Added some ribbon and we are loving it. Going to plan on making a bigger stack of pictures next one.
Hope you enjoy...let me know what you think.

Merry Christmas and a little ornament I made

Here is a Christmas box ornament I made. I wanted to share some pictures of the boys in a neat way for my parents. I sure hope they enjoy it. I handmade the flower by cutting hearts with my cricut all different sizes and crinkling them. Also cut the box from my Tags, bags and boxes cartridge. Used a brad in the middle and used twine to make the loop. Stickles was hard to do on the corners but once I started going I had to finish. It does look pretty in person. Entered project over at mypinkstamper Merry Christmas to you and and yours...Your friendship means the world to me. When I hear from you by comment it makes my day. It surely does bring a smile to my face. I have made so many wonderful blogging friends and if you lived by me I am sure we would be wonderful friends. Sure wish I could travel the world and pop in to each one of you. May each of you have wonderful New Year!

Wow~the holidays have been bringing on some unwanted sickness....First I caught a biggie really. Then my little guy, Colten, came down with the flu last night. It was a rough night to say the least. We actually had to take a nap...if you knew me that never ever happens. I was wiped out. He is doing a little better now. Just weak and not hungry at all. So doing the liquids to make sure he stay hydrated. Tried toast, crackers, even made chicken noodle soup tonight. Nada...I am just praying for him to be well for Christmas.

He is so am I.... I can't wait to see all their faces on Christmas day. We are having Christmas day here with my husbands side. So getting all the meals figured out. I think I am done finally....

Going to watch a movie now....curl up with my gypsy too...Gotta multi task!

Happy Birthday, Jesus!

May we not forget the reason for the season...

Isn't she lovely....

To start off....I want to THANK my sweet friend Sarah for thinking of me in such a wonderful way this holiday season.
She sent me a wonderful magazine all the way from Ireland and the most beautiful Christmas card. As I have said before we have not good ones in the US and she remembered me stating that a while back.

So Sarah~ I wanted to create a card using the toppers and papers from the magazine. I am in all of these ladies....they look victorian to me. I used quite a bit of bling on it from ribbon to glitter paper. Also did some 3d foam to give it a pop on this easel card.

I pray that each one of you is blessed this holiday season....
Have a very Merry Christmas!
and a safe and Healthy New Year!
If I am not in blog land is because I have all the kiddies home starting Thursday. It can go either way...their game systems could win me out some days and i will be able to create.
Oh....I have a question.
What binder is best? Zutter bind it all or the Cinch or any other type you may have heard about?

Graduation flip book.

I am in the middle of multi tasking lately. So I whipped this up in between tons of running around. I just love having my gypsy....I used it to cut the images and the flip pages. (Wrap it up cartridge).Added ribbon and used heavy cardstock. DP was graduation sheets. Added sentiments throughout...Simple yet...cute!

Here is a lovely mini album I won over at Scrap Happens with Rhonda. She is just the sweetest and generious lady in blogland. So happy to have found her site. THis is just the coolest thing.
Now I want to try my hand at making one...
I love it!!! Each page has a spot for a photo and each page is a different package.
The thought in it is just awesome!
So a huge thank you, to Rhonda.

I have to get baking tomorrow....cookies that is.
Then a basketball game and I volunteer in the concession for the varsity game. Wrestling meet on Saturday with my oldest son...Then church that evening. Sunday we are celebrating Christmas early at my parents. Then I can breath for a minute. haha....
Gotta check on gifts to the boys and hope I kept it equal. Gotta love that part with four boys.

My Oldest Graduated College even before High School

So proud of Presten! Very few High School students graduate College before graduating High School. I am proud to say mine is now one! He has achieved something that no one on either family sides has done before. He has set the mark extremly high for his brothers. Hopefully he will continue on his road to success... He would like to be Orthopedic surgeon. So lots of schooling to go.
But next he needs to graduate High School.
Austen,Presten, Jaxten and Colten in front.
An archway for the students...Seeing all the older people graduating made me want to go back to college. hmmmmmmm....very encouraging!
Now we wait on what University he will be attending. He has already been accepted at USF,UCF and FSU. He wants UF and we don't find out until February.
Have a super day!!!

My scrabble board gift idea....

My Christmas gift for my parents....
I love these scrabble board hangers. You have to reinforse the back open with thin wood. I found mine at Hobby Lobby. I put holes in the top corners to make the hanger with ribbon. I also used brads to cover the hole where the ribbon went through.You pick the words and if you run out of a letter use a spare and stamp the letter on it with perma ink. It works like a charm.
Embellish with ever you want and theme it out what ever way you want to.

I used my cricut to cut out the angel and layered it and added stickles glitter to wings. Cute!

I also pieced the flower together at the hanger top.
Endless possibilities. I have made three of them so far.
Will post pictures at later times.
Hope you like!

Tried my hand at mixed media bottle.

I have fallen in love with mixed media bottles....The only problem is that I have not found a tutorial on how to make them. The only one I found cost $60 to take an online course. Just not willing to spend that yet. So on mine I used lace,more lace, beads, wild orchid flowers, ribbon a pretty blue bottle that I found at Hobby Lobby. I made this as a little gift for my mom's birthday. Let me know what you think. If you have heard of this and found out any sites or pointers on them. Please send it my way. Thanks a bunch!
