My Valentine frame




I am sorry to cut this completely short. The cold illness with fever is now going through the house. Finally my little guy broke his fever of four days. Passed the runny nose and head thing over to me. So hopefully he is on the road to a full recovery.
I was able to decorate a frame yesterday. I hope you enjoy the prettiness of the papers. They are from DCWC(?)
Also, I used some of my Wild Orchid flowers and sheer cream ribbon. I cut out the love sentiment from the papers as well and glued it on. Used inking around the ends of the frame. Simple~ but I am pleased with the end result. Entered into challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts challenge: sentiment.
Have a super day!

Just sharing some Presten news....

So neat they gave him a mini helmet and a players helmet. He received the Captains award and the Top Lineman award. He was known as the "pancaker". He laid them flat and then laid on top of them to keep them down. Pretty cool....
Now you will see why I have so many file expanding folders for him.


He not only is good looking but he is a sweetie and has such a wonderful spirit.

Proud parents. My hubby looks a little under the weather in this picture.



A proud mom here....excited for Presten's awards in football. They had me in tears when the coaches said a speech about him. I am blessed to have a well rounded young man. He is a true Christian, good morals, smarts, and athletic. God sure has blessed me with him and my other three boys. They have achieved many honors and I am looking forward to their rewards in the years to come.

He is truly a role model!

A blessed mom....Tammy :)

A card box with drawers..

Here is my newest creation...I wanted to use some paper that I have had...Puppy bones.
I really had fun making this. I just went on a creative kick and this is what I came up with. I used a new stamp that I bought about a month ago.
The sentiment is just perfect for anyone.
My mom gave me some of the unique paper twine stuff. It is really fun to work with.



I used my cricut to cut the drawers...also the paw prints. They are just too cute!!!
This is the finished look. Let me know what you think.
I am putting some valentines in it for the boys...that is why I made 4 drawers.
I used Mickey and Friends cartridge which I haven't used in quite awhile to make the paw. Entering it into Fantabulous Cricut challenge...

My little guy has been running pretty high fevers the past few days now...He caught his daddy's virus. :( I am really fighting this one with lysol and cleaning. I don't want the other boys to get it. Not fun!
Then today...I receive some really awesome news. I won a free CHA live ticket. I'm bursting at the seams with excitement. Thank you, Kristal.
Another happy note is that Presten made Student of the month again this time for the Elk's Lodge he receives a $25 gift card. Principle brunch tomorrow morning. How sweet is that.
We have senior night again with Wrestling tomorrow. Jaxten has his awards ceremony on Friday for straight A's. So much happening here. Austen has 2 more games this week and the season ends for basketball.

5 memories with my family...

I wanted to do a layout for Crafting with Cristina...she wanted 5 memories of 2010 or Resolutions for 2011. I chose the memories of 2010. We usually have lots of school pictures with sports or either regular school pictures and I wanted to incorporate those little memories in to this layout. So here are my four boys school pictures from 2010....Then a huge memory was my son graduating from PHCC with his Honors AA degree before graduating High School. What an achievement that was. So this is my end layout using my new Pooh Font cartridge that I purchased for a whopping $9.99 at Michaels this weekend. Hope you like.... I used inking, tweed and 3d foam risers for the clouds.






Have a blessed Monday...My boys are back in school and it is raining out. So doing a little laundry and well...as you can tell I played this morning. Smiles....

Just a little something that I needed to make

A file folder....


Here is a file folder keeper that I usually decorate for the boys...It is a great place to keep all their school stuff organized. Such as their report cards...awards...papers throughout the years that I saved and much much more... So I needed to make another one for Presten. His other one was completely full. So I just simply cut the letters with my cricut cartridges and added some cheat cheat stickers. It turned out cute....but quite simple to do actually.
Off to lunch and then laser tag with the boys....see you soon.
Also...I was bad and bought two more cartridges for $9.99 at a different Michaels today. Which were Disney and Sesame Street. Hmmmmmmm I have heard that Michaels is not going to carry PC any longer maybe that is why all the sales lately. I really wish I could splurge and get a new Expression but no money for that right now. :( Also, is anyone having problems with their gypsy freezing up? Not sure if it is my cricut causing it or not as they are plugged into one another. Hugs...Tammy
YEPPER TWO POST IN ONE DAY AGAIN>>>>>>>>

Just the Guys...

Still working on some layouts from 2009....I am behind. LOL

Black and white and simple




Just showing a simple black and white card that I made. I did the background cuts with my cricut...again. Wanted to finish off the inside with black and white too.
Great card to do in a pinch...I like it. Never did one this simple before but I think it turned out.
Looking forward to the weekend....Back to school for the boys on Monday. Then I get to study up for the Para test.
