Today Was A Wonderful Day!

Today Is A Wonderful Day!
I love the theme of this layout.  How wonderful our lives would be if we focused on our blessings each day.  I used the Skylark paper line (X7177B) by Close To My Heart.
At the crop I attend this past weekend I was fortunate to try my hand at the new Cricut Explorer.  I cut the bird font on the Explorer and then embellished it with a few rhinestones.
 I love the pretty patterns on the Skylark paper.  I used the Martha Stewart punch to make the shell embellishments. 
Thanks for visiting my blog, "you make me happy" when you do.

Look Whoo's Here!

Happy Monday!
I had a great weekend scrapping away with friends at Lisa's crop.  It was a very productive crop and tons of fun with friends.  One of the layouts I finished is this one using the Artbooking cartridge. 
If you look on page 122 of the current Close To My Heart catalog you will see this layout in white and pink which was my inspiration.

 I had already made this layout with another baby girl over a month ago.  This time I used a different set of colors and a different little model, baby Emma.
If this is your first time visiting, I hope you will return and of course I appreciate your comments.

Dearest Mother

Welcome friends!
Today  have another layout using Graphic 45's Place In Time.  The paper and cut-aparts are very pretty.  I just can't believe next month is upon us and we'll be celebrating Mother's Day.    
I used lavender and purple flowers from my stash and of course my favorite Vivienne Butterfly by Memory Box, Inc.

The Distressed Doily by Tim Holtz created a beautiful embellishment to my layout.  Hope you've been motivated to make a Mother's Day layout and enjoyed this project.

A Place In Time - April, 2014

Happy Monday!
Well I hope you had a blessed Easter with family and friends.  We have another 2 weeks of April and we're quickly moving on to another month.

Last week I got to stop and shop at Wooten's Scrapbook Store in Ontario, California.  I bought some of the beautiful Place in Time  and Secret Garden paper by Graphic 45.

I love the pretty images and I adorned them with colorful flowers by Recollections.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and will come again.

Happy Easter layouts

Happy Easter!
In just a few days we'll be celebrating Easter so I have a couple of layouts.  I used designer paper from the dollar aisle at Target.  The designs are so colorful and pretty. 

The Easter stickers are by Recollections.
Here's another layout made with the same paper pack.

I did a little bit of fuzzy cutting with the printed flowers and I added tons of pretty pearls.  I'm ready to add my Easter pictures.

Sweet Girl

It's Friday!
The days just seem to fly by and another week has ended.  Today I want to share  a  picture of my granddaughter in a pennant frame I decorated.  The My Creations Pennant Frame (Z1941) is by Close To My Heart.  It was decorated with the Lollydoodle paper packet (X7183B). 

The paper frame and title were cut from the Artbooking cartridge exclusively sold by Close To My Heart.  Added some pretty flowers and pearls from my stash and now I have a very pretty picture frame.
Have a safe and blessed weekend.

While reorganizing my craft room I ran across this kit by
Bo Bunny which I had unforgotten I had.  I decided to put it together and loved the end result.

This layout was made using Bo Bunny's Prairie Chic designer paper and embellishments. 

Hope this layout has inspired you to get your craft on.  Thanks for stopping by.

Napkin Fold Card

Happy Monday!
I had a wonderful weekend and got to make a few craft projects.  This is one of them.  It's a napkin fold card for Easter.
Without the belly band the card opens up.

Once completely open this is the final view.  It is made with one 12 x 12 piece of solid color cardstock and some designer papers that coordinate. I used the Easter cartridge for the cutouts.

The belly band has my favorite butterfly by Memory Box.

 Of course I just couldn't make one, I had to make another with Graphic 45's A Ladies' Diary designer paper.  I used a different belly band, this one ties with ribbon. 

 Hope you enjoyed your visit today.

Happy Easter bag

Happy Friday!
Tomorrow I am having my Close To My Heart workshop with 12 of my friends.  We are making the cute bunny box and each of the ladies will get a goody bag with scrapbooking goodies.

The gift bags are from the Dollar Store and I decorated them  with cutouts from the Easter cartridge.  The bunny is embossed with the Swiss dots embossing folder.
I made a bag for each of my friends.  Hope I get 12 smiles!
Thanks for hopping on by to my blog.

My Favorite 10 Things

Good morning blog friends!
I want to thank my up line Karen Morris @ treating me to this great 2-page layout kit.  I tweaked the layout a little bit by adding rhinestones and changing the arrangement, but everything was cut and ready to put together.

 The designer paper is the new Ivy Lane by Close To My Heart. 

The title and other cut elements are from the Artbooking cartridge. 
I'm glad you were able to stop by and I invite you to come back again.
