Old News is still Good News

In 2007 I had an article published and then life got in the way and I had to give up crafting for a while.  I searched and searched and finally found the article again as I could not remember what online mag had published it.  It was scrapbooking.com and here is my article.

Power Scrappin’


I hope you enjoy 🙂


National Scrapbook Day

Oh how exciting!!!!  Every year at this time; the first Saturday in May is, National Scrapbook Day and all over the internet you can find beautiful wonderful layouts that others share for this day.  So many talented people out there and so many wonderful layout ideas.

What will you be doing for this day?  I think I will make a layout, I have not done a real scrapbook page for a long time.  I have been enjoying the mini albums’ making them and decorating them.  They are so much fun.  I plan to share a few on this blog very soon.

I hope you all get to do something very exciting tomorrow and I hope you share your projects with all of us 🙂

Happy Day !!!! ❤

Super Stoked!!! Graphic 45

I am so excited about a couple things!!!!!  First off I am working on opening my Brand New Online Store for all your paper crafting needs.  To fill this store I have selected my first two companies and am ecstatic to announce I will be carrying Scor-Pal Products and also Graphic 45 products.  I couldn’t be happier, those are two of my favorite companies and now I am able to offer them to all my followers.

It’s been a long time :(

Wow!   It seems like it has been forever since I blogged.  I had some very scary things happen with my family lately and just have not had the heart to get on here and type. 😦  Things have improved a great deal thank God and I am back and ready to craft. 🙂

I am working on a few different projects right now.  I am very happy about a new album I am creating from a tutorial and can’t wait to show you all.  When it is finished I will then share the link to this tutorial so if you like it as much as I do you might make one yourself.  There is no other feeling in the world as the feeling you get when you create an actual album from scratch and see the results.  I sometimes look at one I might have made a year ago and I always ask myself “Did I make that”?  I love it!

Also trying to come up with just the perfect Mother’s Day card for my Mom.  She has been the best Mother a girl could ever ask for and I just want her card this year to be PERFECT!

Along with all that I am working on a baby girl album that I just love.  It is a 4 x 4 canvas album and it is just darling.  I can’t wait to finish embellishing it so that I can find the perfect little girl to use it 🙂

Summer is upon us finally and I will need to get some flowers planted.  I don’t have much of a yard these days but it is still a lot of fun.

My sisters scare with lung cancer is over but she sure has a lot of mending to do.  I am over there often and try to help as much as I can but I can’t imagine how she must feel.  Getting a piece of your lung removed is not an easy thing to go through but the good news is, IT WAS NOT CANCER, praise God!!!!

My grand baby was born with Down Syndrome so we have had a lot to learn in a short time, but at 6 weeks old he is already rolling over.  I hope this is a sign that he won’t struggle much with life.  He is such a precious baby and his name is Abel 🙂 ❤

Please follow me on facebook if you’d like as I often post updates and such there.

Hope to type again soon.

Off to create 🙂

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a big day around our place as it is our Anniversary as well.  This means lots of goodies and good eats 🙂

I try to make the hubby a card every year, this year I decided to make a flip card.  I am low on matching patterned paper so I decide to put these three solid colors together.  I am pleased.  I got the cut file from Bird, birdscards.com.  One of my favorite places to visit.  She is such a talented lady and I love her files.
