Red Riding Hood in the house!

So Sweet

TGIF Everyone!!!!

I am on my way to Tampa, FL as we speak! I wanted to share this quick card I made the other day. Torendi is a big fan of classic storybook characters. One of the retailers we purchase from, Decole, has a whole line dedicated to Red Riding Hood. I made this card by cutting the little house image from a Decole postcard!


Check out this new set that just came in:

We have LOTS OF NEW STUFF on it’s way from a new to us retailer, Kodomo Stamps!

I’ve seen their products in CARDS and Paper Crafts Magazines!


Teaching in Dothan, AL!

Cardmaking Made Easy

Starting next month, I’ll be teaching a cardmaking class at my LSS, Papermoon Scrapbooking! So, if you happen to be in the area, drop in to the store and reserve your spot!

You will learn many techniques and tips including, paper piecing and coloring. I have a special technique that I’m dying to share! So, if you’re new to card making or someone that already takes up this fun hobby, you will learn something new!

Spice Things Up

Spice Things Up

Here’s a puny Valentine’s Day card I made! I’m a wannabe foodie so this card appeals to me. I used some American Crafts Abode elements, the Lawn Fawn Stamps alphabet set, and a little puffy heart! Who doesn’t LOVE a puffy heart?


In other news, things are set for our trip to Tampa this weekend! Brocotto’s, a Rays v. Yankees game, and Busch Gardens is on the agenda!

Here’s page one of a layout I created of CJ’s hospital experience when he broke his arm!

Mr.Brightside Page 2

This is page 2 of my layout! I drew inspiration from the Medical Elements of the Jillibean Soup papers. I made a scalloped border with the mini eye charts, a cool dot pattern with envelope ties (like the ones found on old medical files), and a staple border.

What is SORTA looks like next to each other!

If you have any tips on photographing double layouts, DO SHARE!

Picture is horrible, but you can see the surprise on Liam's face!

How was your weekend? Mine was fun! I had family over to celebrate Liam’s Birthday (which is actually today)! After ruining his birthday cupcakes, we went to Applebees and the staff sang to him and brought each child their own ice cream sundae!

This weekend, my family bought the boys bikes. Liam was given this classic tricycle. He’ll probably outgrow it in a year, but it was love at first sight for him. He rides it everywhere, even around the house. He even hooks his bike up with his brother’s by using bungie cords. His most recent modification includes a little handheld radio that he stores in the compartment in the back with the rest of his “treasures”.

It was, indeed, a great weekend!
