Sending you love card and mini album.

Happy Sunday everyone!

I don't know what happened last week but I had some posts ready to post and they did not post. This darn blogger sometimes. LOL! I have so much fun last Saturday at my crop.  I love to get together with all of my crafty friends and catch up with each other. I didn't really get too much crafting done but I had a great time.
I did get two baby banners done that I will share with you later this week (I still have to take pictures).

I wanted to share with you today a card and mini album I made for my Grandma. She is feeling pretty down right now. My Grandpa has had Alzheimer's disease for sometime now, but it had gotten really bad and last week she had to put him in a nursing home. I can't imagine what she must be feeling right now, they have been marry for over 60 years so I know it must be hard on her.
I thought I would make her this cute little card and mini album I made with the Yourstory mini.
I used the Preserves cartridge for the watermelon and DCWV Sweet Treats paper pack.

I used the Once Upon a Princess cuttlebug folder for the front of this album.
One more thing I wanted to share with you all. I am sure you heard that Jinger Adams is no longer at PC but she has a new blog and she is coming out with a new shoe line. How awesome is that? Here is a link to her new blog Jinger Adams. I had the pleasure of meeting Jinger in UT 2 years ago and she is just a sweetheart.  I wish her the best of luck in her new endeavors.

More Tags

WOOHOO it Friday!

Tomorrow I am going to a crop and I can't wait to go play with all my cropping pals. I thought I would share the last of the tags I made for the tag swap I was in. 
I used Sophie on this tage and the stamp is from My Pink Stamper
This one is for Mari Gras, I used Chic & Scary for the mask and then covered it with glitter, I was trying to find gems and bling to put on this one, I search my house up and down for Mari Gras beads (which I always seem to have except when I needed them LOL!) but instead found this green necklace in my daugthers room and cut it up. Don't worry she doesn't even know its gone! LOL!
This one is a birthday one.
Another Birthday one, I used CCR and my Imagine for the center piece and the stamp again is from My Pink Stamper.

Tag Swap!

Hi Everyone

I wanted to share with you some of the tags I made for a tag swap I was in. I made all of these tags as 3.25 x 6.75 inches. The two I will be sharing today is the Valentine Tag and the St. Paddy's day tag. This is really the first time I have tried to make tags so they were a bit of a challenge but I had fun making them.
I used hearts from Simply Charmed but did not do the layers.
I used Simply Charmed on this one and a grass punch I had. The stamps are Studio J stamps from Michaels.

Valentine's Notebook

Happy Wednesday!

Oh it is the middle of the week and I for one can't wait for it to be over. I am going to an all day crop on Saturday and can't wait to see all my cropping pals. My sister and I are going to be working on items for some upcoming craft fairs that we want to go to so I am really excited to see what we come up with.
It has been a busy couple of weeks for me, tax season started and I have been working late hours and not getting a whole lot of crafting done, but I did make this Valentine's Notebook for a Circle pal swap we did.
Yep you guessed it, the original notebook is from the $1 bins at Michaels. I love them! LOL! I picked up this Valentine paper from Joann and found these accessories that match.  Check back tomorrow and I will be showing some tags I made for a tag swap I was in.
