I've started working on Christmas for this year...already

I wanted to decorate unique jars...The jar I used for this one is from the Pottery barn a great find at my local Goodwill.I've used my Martha Stewart punch for the lace look.
I used napkin ring holders,ornaments,decorations and poly-fill for the topper.

I really am pleased with the end result. Going to be making many more.

Friends and family will be getting a one of a kind creation like this from me. shhhhhh...
It's a secret.

I hope you all had a wonderful Saturday.
Mine was with my family...which I enjoyed. Lots of outdoor stuff going on around here.
Working on my tan. LOL
Be blessed...

Victorian card....

What a beautiful day in Sunny Florida.
I decided to take a break from the "sun" and the outdoors and create today.I used lots of embellishments on this. Even a wonderful stick pin that my mom gave me. It was antique as well as the ribbon I used.
I so love the new prima flowers...they are just soooooo pretty. I used a wonderful new music stamp from my stash...Distressed all the edges of the papers.

Entered into challenge:

I hope you enjoyed my card...I finished off the inside with layers of cardstock that I sewed. Haven't put the sentiment inside yet...Not sure who the recipent will be as of yet.

Have a wonderful beautiful and surperb day!
Smiles...always, Tammy

Graphic45...gotta love these papers..and a little Fairy

Here is a layout that I made using Graphic45 papers...from my stash.
Le'Romantique The papers are already beautiful and have lots of stuff going on with them.
So I used 3d foam to add the punch outs. Added some antique lace and pearls.
Some cute brads and buttons. I am just in love with the papers and want to show off their images so I made a spot for one photo. It actually turned out pretty nice.
Let me know what you think...comments are always welcome.
Entered into a Graphic45 challenge over at Creative Cutter Room.

Here is a little cutie that I won during the OWOH event.
This little Fairy is so tiny...the work that went into him was remarkable.

Today was a great day....I got my first sunburn. Have to have that to get my base for the season. I love our weather right now. It is not too hot and the wind makes it just feel so wonderful out. Those colbalt blue skies and some white fluffy clouds just make my day.
Glad the kids were out of school today to enjoy canoeing and fishing in the backyard.
Hope you had as wonderful day as we did.
Oh this University time consuming. We were at Gainesville for the day yesterday. Also, looking at homes just in case by some miracle I could get the hubby to move out of Hudson.

So excited to be spotlighted at Fantabulous Cricut

I am so thrilled that Fantabulous Cricut asked me to a Guest Designer.
Where I was spotlighted yesterday~ pop over to their blog if you would like to have a peek.
For my project I used a drink container the ones with flavor packets inside(going green-again) for the vase.
I covered it with DP. Then with my Cricut, I cut the flower and pot from the
Walk in my garden cartridge. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the flower which also is a cuttlebug folder. I wanted it to pop so I used my stickles and a little chalk ink for the flower so it would stand out. I do hope you like my makes a wonderful vase as you can see with my beautiful rose. Which by the way was from parent night at Wrestling.

Some Pictures of Presten

Just wanting to do a little mommy brag post....Here is a Picture of Presten from today getting his check and certificate from the Elks lodge. They chose him as one of the Student of the months. Presten, then goes into the draw for a scholarship they offer before graduation in May. He was such a sweet man. :) We had the biggest acceptance year in Presten's school history for kids to attend University of Florida. Not all have made up their minds but we know of five that will definitely become a Gator...Notice the Gator chomp with the hands...

Well, I have lots going on here. Two of my boys are going to our basketball team regional play offs tonight. Go Cobras!!! Then hubby takes little man, Colten to baseball practice. I have to help Jaxten with a school project. Hopefully I will be working on a craft project...not sure what I am going to make yet. Also~I forgot to mention they senior class picked Presten as Most likely to succeed for the senior superlative
smiles....have a wonderful weekend!

My funny little story.... a mom of four boys, hubby and 2 boy dogs. Lets just say I am out numbered in my house. They kinda think I am just one of the guys and well I wanted them to know that I am not one of them. So I decided to make some subtle hints around the bedroom walls by my side that I am indeed a women. A queen/princess....
Ususally, I would not do this but as they are getting older they have been taking advantage of me. I am sure you all can relate if you have kids.
I used my cricut and some bling and this awesome ribbon that I found after christmas sale at Joann's and whipped up this wall hanging. Let me know what you think.
Have a wonderful rest of the week.

I just love Disney World...such a happy place.

Do you ever....

Do you ever just walk by something you put together and say "hey, I think I will take a picture" then you forget about it. Well, that is me to a capital T.
I just loved creating this creation out of a thrift find the brass bowl thingie..the background to how I created the design...not the urn of course that was something that I had from Home Interiors from a long time ago.
Neat to incorperate papers and bows and extra stuff to make a pretty wall hanging.
I need to do more of that again. Thinking about it for this week.
I love Victorian creations.
Let me tell you I have seen some wonderful artwork on the One World One Heart hop.
It is truly amazing what people create in the art world.
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday... And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” – Phil 4:19

Smiles always, Tammy P.s. check out my fishbowl layout below. Happy smiles to you :)

A flowery layout...

Here is a fun layout I made. I purchased this wonderful stamp set at Michael's craft store.
I decided to tweek the stamps abit. I like the pedals so decided to combine some to make the flowers. I also made the butterfly out of stamps. It turned out pretty cute I think. Added some twine and some flowers and pearl drops. I used my new Martha Stewart punch for the leaves.

It is really pretty and very I guess I need some girlie pictures of me. LOL...haha
Seeing most of my pictures are of my boys and hubby. I am the one operating the camera.

I hope you are enjoying your Saturday.

Today my hubby takes my little Guy Colten to his first of hopefully many baseball practices.
We entered in a little late and hope that my hubby wanting to help coach will help my little
guy on the team. I don't see why not. I would have to let him on....He is only 8...See I have a weak spot for little ones. I could never turn down one. :)
My oldest did not do as well in Regionals as I think his mind was on UF yesterday waiting on the decision. Either way I am so proud of him going so far at a new sport. He amazes me just like my others do. I hope his inspiration and achievements helps the other brothers to achieve their goals.
Hoping to hit a few thrift shops...feeling creative. Need some inspiration...
Hugs to you all.
smiles...always, Tammy

I have a wonderful friend on here named Jacque...some of you may know her from her wonderful creations or on her blog Well she sent me the most wonderful card recently. Which really put mine to shame.... It was perfectly made and with so much detail and depth. So of course her being so sweet told me what adhesives to use. So grateful for I know how much time it takes to make her lovely cards. Which is MEGA time....let me tell you. So I decided I would take a stab at making a Mega word for it. They are so think and well made. It took me days....every free moment i was working on this card. LOL
I have lots of layers....actually I need to perfect the ribbon glue thing...
This I made to displict me...cleaner. know the drill when you have my case four of them. I used Belle's and Whistles stamps which are in my top five favorites. Let me know what you think of my creation... oh...notice the stitching too.
Have a wonderful weekend.
We find out today if Presten gets into University of Florida...big deal as that is his #1 pick. He did get into his other 3 so far. So praying on this one too.
Also, he is in his away wresting regional meet today and Saturday. So send some prayers his way for this is *huge* too. I am so proud either way...
Have a wonderful weekend my sweet friends.
