Another challenge finished

This is the last challenge for September from our guest designer, Dana Miron. The challenge was to make a layout about my high school memories. This is what I came up with. I used some older chatterbox paper I had around and I cut the letters with the GEORGE cricut font (it comes with the least the original cricut). High School was a great time for me.

I have been working on my DT stuff for the HSS upload on Oct. 2. I made a layout using Dream Street paper that I really like. I cant wait til I can share it!

I have 3 birthdays next twins on Oct. 2nd and my oldest son on Oct. 4th. I need to do some shopping soon. The oldest should be easy to shop for, but the twins are a bit harder. They want some funny football pads (to use in the backyard). Ill have to see what I can find.

Hope youre having a great day!

HSS Challenge

This was the second challenge Dana gave us for September. We were supposed to do a layout about our Junior High/Middle School Memories. (Quit laughing at my hair LOL). I found some 8x10 pics of me in 7th and 8th grade and printed them smaller, but my printer isnt really great at pictures and they look even worse after being printed and scanned LOL. Anyway, this is what I came up with. I used my new cricut cartridge, printing press...I love how the letters change in size and thickness...very eclectic. Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Challenges at HSS

I got a couple of challenges done at HSS and thought I would share. Our Guest DT for September is Dana Miron (One of the Designers for Dream Street). She has given us challenges to create layouts about our school memories. This is my first challenge...elementary school. Ive been out of school for a while, so elementary school was a bit of a challenge for me. I loved this Daisy Ds paper though...thought the colors were perfect.

Pam posted the instructions for this card at HSS and challenged us to make one. I just love the size it turned out to be (4"x4" finished). I believe we were also supposed to use stamps. I have tons of stamps, but dont use them very often so this was good push for me. I combined the card challenge with Amanda's Use It Up challenge, which was to use metal. Overall, I like the results. Thanks for looking!

What a great day!

Today I went to sub at my oldest sons was the easiest day ever! When I got there they were just going to lunch. Then they were on an assembly schedule and I was just the teachers aide, so it was a short amount of time in class and I just walked around and made sure kids were doing what they were supposed to. Then we went to an assembly! How fun is that? Then I came home and had my HSS happy box at my front door and another package at my side door! I dont think my day can get much better! Hope your day is just as good!

Exciting Email...

Last night I got an email from a girl at Paper Trends! She was telling me how much she liked a project I have being pubbed with them. How sweet is that that she took the time to email me and tell me that? Made my whole day!

My first thing ever being pubbed should be coming next the Oct/Nov Paper Trends. Then I have one in November Cards, and then two items in Dec/Jan Paper Trends (one of which she emailed me about). I can hardly wait to see them! Anyway, I had to share my excitement over the email. Hope you are all having a great day!

Check out my Slide Show!

Yay, my time is fixed...

Haha...thank you, thank you Trish! YOu rock! I got my time changed. That was bugging me. Thanks for your help!

Kids got out early today, started them on homework and dh came home early. Now my youngest has scouts, and my oldest has baseball. I havent gotten anything done today. Blogging is addictive, and I spend way to much time online. Hope youre all having a great day!

What I love about you Journal

This is a journal I made last night. I thought I could write something I loved about my husband each day and then give it to him. Figured its gotta be good for the relationship to look for the good everyday right? Plus who wouldnt love to read a journal full of nice things about themselves?

I used the Love Elsie Betty Collection paper. My favorite Doodlebug Expressions that font! and I kandee love market tag...I took the tab off of it. Then I used a sticker from 7 gypsies that says Made with undying passion by:_____________. I debated between that sticker and one that says limited edition __of__.

I notice that my time is still wrong...oh well. I cant figure it out. Thanks for looking!

New Look

Well, I really wanted this particular template when I started my blog but couldnt figure out how to do it...but just played around and found it. What do you think? I really like the colors of it.

Here are the things I uploaded for my DT projects at HSS this month

The Love Notes box was made with a pattern I found in the Gooseberry Patch Christmas book 9, it was really easy. The paper is Love Elsie Betty Collection. Also, I got to use my cricut for the first time on this! So much fun and so easy! I just love this font...its called All Mixed Up. Doodlebug also makes rubons in the same font.

The Halloween layout and door hanger were made using Bo Bunny Halloween Paper. It was lots of fun! The chipboard letters are American Craft, and the stamps on the door hanger are from Provo Craft! Click on these layouts out in the store and get a direct link to products used

I noticed that my time on my post is wrong...its actually an hour off...anyone know how to fix that?
