What a great time we have when we can all get together! 

This layout is of the “Spence’s” playing cornhole.  I love this spot on my uncle’s farm.  Granted all I have is my little car and always have to rely on someone else to get me back there unless I want to walk.  Nah!  🙂

Cornhole Lo

I hope you enjoy my creations.  I have plans for some new things.  More TP mini albums, tiles, and altered journals.  Christmas is coming quickly and I hope that most of my aunts and cousins gifts will be hand made. 

Now for a young man’s (15-25 years of age) hand made gift?  I am drawing a blank…  Can anyone share their ideas?




Vacation August 20, 2009

Well we took a little mini vacation to Gatlinburg. We got to go to Dollywood. What fun.  Lane always has a blast.

We also went to Ripley’s Aqurium.  We all love that too.  We always get season passes and go real early in the AM and then really late in the evening.  This way we beat the crowd.  And yes, we go twice a day everyday we are there.  There is always something new to see.  This year we got to see the turtle one morning come up for air.  In 6 years we had not seen that.  Then another day we got to see it at the bottom.  What an animal.  It is my favorite. 

Lane and the Turtle

This year they also had baby hammer head sharks.  Last year they had baby chicks they we actually got to see hatch from their eggs and baby alligators.  What a thrill!

Hope you had a great summer!

So I have a cousin who is leaving to start her life in northern VA.  I am so happy for her and wish her the best. 

We had her a little get together/shower for a house warming party just for the family granted that is HUGE! She got some really nice gifts.  This is what I had made her to add with the towels and cash I gave her; might I add she loved it.  I didn’t know what colors or anything so I just picked one of my favorites. 

I love doing projects like this.  I used my cricut and the Lifes a beach cart and Storybook cart.





Another Toilet Paper Roll Album August 14, 2009

I have purchased a Crop a Dile and have I stated how EASY these are now.  Why did I not have one of these prior to 3 weeks ago….LOVE IT.  Almost the most useful tool I own in the entire house.  One of my newly acquired friends is going to be a GRANNY! I may have some more news on her in the upcoming weeks but it is just too soon to tell.  The grandbaby is suppose to be a boy so I have made her a mini album to keep some of the pictures and good stuff in there.  Hope you enjoy.  These are so easy now that I have my Crop a Dile. 


School Supply Bottle August 12, 2009

For I have no idea what else to call it!  School is getting ready to start and I wanted to take the teachers something special to start the year with.  I have decorated the outside with a theme of yes, school!  Interesting isn’t it.  Well here are some pictures. 

I took the label off the bottle and very carefully with the exacto knife cut a 3 sided square out so I could pack this stuff in it.  Then I decorated a piece of card stock.  I think it came out okay.  I could add some things to it I guess.  I used glitter on the apple to make it pop. I used the Cricut to cut most of the decorations.  I used the Locker Talk cart.
