I'm on this week with the challenge at Scrapbook Heaven .
Make sure you check out ALL the challenges and did you know that each month there is a PRIZE for one of the submitted challenges???  Your chances are GREAT so come join us!

It is not a hard one but it is different!  I've noticed a few layouts with edges that are border punched but NOT all the way around!  Just a little here and a little I thought I'd give it a try.  Here is what I came up with.

It is a little hard to tell that there is nothing behind the punch (looks like white cardstock) but there isn't!  I love how it looks in real life!  Even when my hubby saw it he commented on how he loved the little bits punched out!  So, I DARE you, challenge you or just ask if that is how you see it to give it a try!  I think you will like it!

By the way, this layout is my oldest son and his sweet wife while they were on a little vaca this year!  I think it is so neat how my older kids are now asking, bringing and requesting that I do layouts for them!  I guess it is one of the perks from this awesome hobby!  AND one more thing, I used the May Elite kit to create this one!  I'll be sharing a few more layouts in the next few days from this awesome kit!  It rocks!  Don't wait because they will NOT last!

And here are a few MORE layouts with the May Elite Kit....just to show you how fun it is1  I've created 4 layouts and there is enough left that I could EASILY create 4 more!  


So much fun creating with this kit!  Check out the petite kit while you are there!  I'll share some creations with that one in the next few days!

A Little Challenge Work

Before I share two layouts created for Scrapbook Heaven's Monthly Challenges...

You know how you get all excited about yard sales especially when there are not two, not three but FOUR NEIGHBORHOOD sales right nears you AND a church sale!! (well, maybe you don't but we do) Let me just say that the anticipation isn't always worth it! Sigh...

Got up early to hit them all only to find out that not only were they a bit disappointing (two tables does not constitute a yard sale to me! That is a closet sale! Hahaha!) but also the pickets were out in full force. Plus Craig's List listings means that when there used to be 40/50 folks out because they heard about them to 250 plus people!! Pickings were thin and we even came home by 10:30! Sigh...

Now, I did have some fun scrapping. I complete Michelle's AND Vero's challenges! I'm up this Wednesday to post mine and that is what I'm going to work on today!!

Here they are, Vero shared a sketch and colors!

And Michelle's was to do a layout without pics! I did totally lift this layout from one I saw on that veggie site!

You guys have a super Sunday!

Easter Sunday was a fun day!

We decided to do something a little different this year.

We went to the 6:30 am service! And we made it WITH a 3 month old as they were singing the first song!! How good is that!

That was the beginning of a beautiful day. Adison was serving at church so quickly between services we snuck him out to take a few quick pictures. That is a tradition but I will say taking them behind the gym at church does not make good pictures! Oh well, I still have them even if they aren't perfect.

The rest of us headed home to take the 'traditional' pictures. Yea! Then we changed clothes and loaded up for a new fun twist for breakfast!

Hubby has been wanting a charcoal grill (of course I've wanted one for years but isn't that how it goes?). So we decided to cook breakfast on the grill at our Reservoir area!

It was a beautiful morning, and after moving to the sun (was a little chilly in the shade) the boys cooked away!

I think we found a new possible tradition? Well when the Mississippi weather holds out that is!

Hope you had a blessed day!

Here are a few of my layouts using the Elite Kit!  (I have some of the Petite kit too but Adison has my camera!  YIKES...why did I let him borrow that anyway???)

Yes....they are all from ONE kit!  I love the diversity of Scrapbook Heaven's kits!  Don't you?  Everything from family layouts, girl layouts, and boy stuff!!! 

That is it for today....tomorrow is Easter and we are going to the 6:30 service and then out to the Rez to cook breakfast together!  How fun does that sound???  I'll try to get a few pics and share and then share my goodies from the Petite kit!  Have a super blessed day!

Diary of a Grandma

It has been a while....quite a while but that doesn't mean life has stopped...

It is time to bring some new perspective to this 'blog' thing....question is can I keep it up?  SURE I can!

With 2012 fast approaching it is time to gear up and bring more than just scrapbooking/stamping to this is time to keep up with family, with life, with weight loss journey, with GRAND CHILDREN!  Yes...we have even added a new member to our family!  I am now the grandma to Bailie (age 13) and Ian who was born 12/24/11. 

How about a few little is my sweet grand daughter:
At 13 she is going on 21, she is beautiful!

And here he is....Ian William, born 12/24/11 weighing in at 9lbs 4 oz and almost 21 inches long...

Not only is he here but I had the honor to be IN THE ROOM with mom and dad as he came into this world.  That alone was no small feat. Mom's labor wasn't the easiest, and believe it or not, even at 9lbs plus he was 3 weeks and 1 day early!  He currently is in the NICU but has already come far and hopefully will be home with mom and dad SOON!  Here are a few more pics of his little journey so far:
                                          Day 1 and 2, December 25, 26

                                          December 27
                                         Mom with Ian December 27

AND today he came off the heating blanket and now just to work his way off the oxygen!

My thoughts through all this are is worth it!  I am anxiously awaiting the day to hold him and coo properly over and with the sweet little one.  Hopefully you will soon see those pictures here, until then....just know that I LOVE being GRANDMA!

Introducing Mitzi Wiuff!

Oh how excited I am to be part of this release!  What an AMAZING artist!

Okay....gotta settle down a bit and get the 'business' part of this release done...first, WELCOME to a fantastic blog hop brought to you by Queen Kat Stamps to introduce a new stamp designer Mitzi Wiuff!  You should have stopped here by the way of the official Queen Kat Designs Blog, if not, go back and make sure you get the full list of blogs for today, and to find out more about Mitzi!

Now....I got the honor to design with Dreaming on Aquamarine Tides stamp!  She is beautiful and unlike any stamp I've designed with!

Here are two cards I made with this amazing stamp:

 I decided I wanted to just use my inks and do some 'smudging' with them! (with the aid of some Tim Holtz tools/inks of course!)  I simply inked my blending tool with several different colors of ink...with circular motions....I worked from the inside colors to the outside...I LOVED the much that I did it on this card also!

Both of these cards are so easy, yet the look is priceless!

Now, don't you want to see more of the new stamps?  I know I'm ready to see them!  So let's hop on over to Chris' place and see what awesome design she got to play with!  Then after the hop you HAVE to stop by the store and pick up some of these stamps...but I warn will want them ALL!!

See you all soon!
