I am really looking forward to this coming weekends Skylark crop.
We have a great group of ladies coming and I can’t wait to show you all what I have been working on. There is still space is anyone else is interested in joining us.
I love this months stamp set. The letters are awesome for titles and journaling but this video gives you some great out of the box ideas. I love this Circus Alphabet!
Hey all so I know several of you were following me during my week at convention. It was amazing as always. Close to My Heart wined and dined us as usual and then threw Mickey into the mix. It was AWESOME! I couldn’t wait to come home and get started back up and then, I opened my scrap room door. The crafting Gods threw up all in that room! Boxes, paper, markers, ink and kids toys everywhere. EECK! I had to start cleaning so I could get inky! Here is the before pick! Notice my darling “helper”. I managed to contain her to one area! I have made a dent but I still have a long way to go. I did manage to set up all my convention goodies so you could see all the CTMH goodness!
Can you see all the amazingness? Ribbon, embellishments and paper galore. I made 8 completed 12×12 pages, 24 cards, and a super cute bracelet! See what I mean by a crafters dream! Be on the look out for all sorts of new classes and workshops! Hope to see you soon
I have been busy busy at convention! We received a new catalog, have seen lots of new products, and I am learning all kinds of new techniques. But more I am in one of my happy places with women I have grown to love and have so much in common with. It’s really like the sorority of the scrapbook world! I will have much more to post in the coming weeks but here are some of the new things we have been playing with.

Hi all I know I know you have missed me. What a crazy 6 weeks I have had. I have truly not had any free time. I haven’t even scrapped, crafted or inked in 6 weeks GASP! Here a is a brief recap of our last few weeks.
Mid April-Sawyer had his first virus/sickness (which at 5 months is amazing for us) we ended up taking him to hospital for CROUP. How is it after 3 kids I had no clue about CROUP
Then April 29th we had a flood. Literally Pensacola received 27 inches of rain in a 24 hour period and many people lost Their homes. We had property damage but no water in our home Praise God. Our neighbors however were not so lucky.
My baby girl turned 5 and had an amazing Frozen party.
My baby brother married my gorgeous sister-in-law
I took a much needed vacation with some of my best girlfriends
My baby girl graduated Pre-K. I can’t believe I have a Kindergartner.
Then we had a few more visitors for a weekend.
WHEW what a crazy whirlwind life has taken us on! Needless to say it has been super busy and I have a ton of scrapbooking to catch up on. Be on the look out for some amazing scrapbook pages and classes coming up.
I am getting back into the swing of things and looking forward to teaching and sharing with everyone. I have a class coming up June 19th let me know if you are interested in joining me (either in person or via mail).
Its no secret that Artbooking is still my most favorite Cricut Cartridge of all time. I use it all the time. If you haven’t had a chance to play with it you need to come take one of my classes. Or you can order your own here.
Here is another great Video of another wonderful layout.
I love all these Artbooking layouts and cant wait to get working on my Christmas pictures! We have a lot to celebrate this Christmas! What would you like to see?!
My little man finally arrived on 11/12/13. What an awesome birthday he has!! You can imagine that my life has been super crazy adjusting to life with 3. I never imagined it would be easy but man I never dreamed getting everyone dressed in the morning could be this hard!!
I wanted to post some of my creations prior to his arrival. Yes I pre-made some pages knowing I would have lots of photos. I tried to keep them simple so I could fit any kind of pictures in. I have one totally finished and I think it turned out pretty sweet!These aren’t the best pictures of the colors thanks to a very over cast afternoon but I still think they turned out great. I love the babycakes paper and know I will be using lots of it in the near future!
