A fun layout!

I thought I would post a layout I recently did while participating in the challenges that Creating Keepsakes hosted on Facebook last week in celebration of 40,000 fans.
These are a few of my favorite photos, they are about 2 years old.  We were lucky enough to be stationed in Massachusetts for 7 years and were able to be near my husbands family.  In my opinion it is one of the best places to live and we definitely want to move back when we get out of the military if possible.  These photos were taken at the Burlington Mall in Johnny Rockets, both the mall and the diner were a few of our favorite places.  These are my amazing kids in everyday life being themselves and I love it:)

Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger

Isn't this trigger picture great!  I love the color combo but I found that I had a difficult time figuring out what to do with it.  I made the card that I did simply because I wanted to play with a new stamp that I had just purchased.  If you want to play along or just check out all of the other interpretations of this trigger click here.

Thanks for stopping by.


PTI Bloghop!

This Months Blog hop is an inspiration photo! 

For my card this month I used some watercolor crayons and colored on my acrylic block, then I misted it with water and stamped it on my cardstock.  I had to play with the new stamps I had just received so I used the Gracious Vases stamp set in the bottom right corner.  I just love this new set!  I then used dimensional adhesive and adhered my panel to my card base, really easy and fun.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

PTI: Make it Monday

Hello!  Here is my entry for this weeks Make it Monday.  The technique for this week was reverse masking.

I die cut the butterfly from masking paper and adhered it to my paper.  I then stamped my paper with a newsprint background.  I blended some ink in over the newsprint stamping.  Then i removed the mask and added some rhinestones for the butterfly trail and stamped the sentiment.  It was really quick and easy.  If you want to play along or check out the other entries click here.

Have a great day!

200th Post and a Published card

I just realized that this will be my 200th post on my blog!  It is hard to believe that I have had that many posts.  I started this blog on July 1, 2009 as a way of entering challenges and I still love entering challenges.  As I look at the projects I have posted some of them I love and I look at some of them and think to myself "what was I thinking that is horrible"!  Personally I think I have grown a lot over the last few years with my card making but there are still cards I make now that I don't love.  I have found that the ones that I have to try to much on are the worst and the ones that come easy to me I love.  Well that will wrap up my rambling for today and on to my reason for this post.   I wanted to share a card that I recently had published in Paper Crafts Card Creations Volume 9.
I absolutely love this card and I am so happy that it was picked  up.  I think I might just have to make a bunch more and use this for my Christmas Card this year.  Well that's all for today everyone!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
