Lets get Inspired

New month, new stamp of the month and boy is it a cutie!!! If you arrived here from Pamelas blog your on track for INSPIRATION! Check out the deets if your ready to add this cutie patootie set to your collection!!

I cut two circle punches scalloped the edges, misted them with water, crumbled them and then let them dry for several hours.I stamped my hedgehog and colored him with chalks. I used my coluzzle to cut my large circle in background paper and Goldrush cardstock, I cut the Goldrush with my scallop scissors. I cut a strip of background paper and then cut the edge with my scallop scissors. I used my piercing tool to add some dots to the Moonstruck and Colonial White. I popped the sentiment with pop dots and added 3 brads. I tell you those pattern books are awesome, worth every dime.

Please continue on your INSPIRATIONAL journey by visiting Dawns spot!!

Happy Summer to you!!

Its the first day of summer, YEAH!! It really didnt feel that way here, Iam enjoying the mild weather. Wont be long and I will be whining about the 100 degree temps. Maybe I can look back on these photos and feel COOL!

Both of these layouts were inspired by sketchs by Inspired Blueprints

We live in the desert but our winters get pretty cold and the wind factor BBRRR, its always windy here. We always have threats of snow, some years we get a few flurries, maybe a light dusting over night. The winter of 2008 did not disappoint, it snowed for hours. It was beautiful, were not used to this so stores close, people pick there kids up from school early etc. Well this day happened to be the wednesday before winter break and this snow gave us 2 snow days starting our winter vacation 2 days early. Its was awesome to get that snow day phone call.

I cant seem to get enough of...

Scrappin my tushy off!! I cant share what I have been working on card wise, just yet. In between stamping I am scrappin !! I hope your enjoying the layouts!

While scrappin and stampin I have become addicted to watching movies on my laptop.
I watched over the last four days, Dear John, Revolutionary Road, Valentines Day ( LOVED IT), Its Complictated (LOVED IT, too funny) and Up in the Air. Gotta love the Red Box!!

ETA: Dont forget Jackpot June deals, there awesome. Today is GOODIE BOX DAY!!
I created a quick card to share, simple and clean! Way back when I cut up a bunch of felt flowers with my Sizzix and put them away. I couldnt find them for months all I could remember was I put them some kind of container. As you can see I FOUND THEM!!

I stacked 3 flowers and sewed the button right onto the flower, emossed my card using a CB template and ruffled my ribbon across the card VIOLA!!

Happy Saturday to you!!

Its GOODIE BOX day, purchase a goodie box containing $120 worth of product for only $60. These boxing having amazing stuff inside, the last box conained cardstock, accessories, mini books, ribbon rounds, at least 6 stamp sets, level 1&2 scrapbook kits and more. You can make a puchase by clicking the CTMH banner, or Jackpot June banner on the right. Hey the sticky post above will direct to my online store also.

Okay I know I have shown you nothing but layouts for days, but I still have not stamped a completed card. I have some materials on my desk now because Iam working on special cards. I have things I need to upload to my compuer, bear with me!

Got this idea from Stacy Julian , she challenged you to dump your purse and photograph the contents and tell what it says about you. I cant wait to scrap this pic!

I think my contents say I am a Lady who likes to be prepared for anything, I dont like to sit idle. So I make sure I have things on hand to keep me occupied and entertained. I believe everything I have in the picture is a neccessity for me, I have eliminated one item from my purse over the last 6 months and it was my makeup bag.

If your wondering if my purse is heavy, the answer is YES IT IS.

A day late BUT not short on happenings

I am glad to say that I am still officially in SCRAPPIN MODE!! Two more layouts done and there FABULOUS at least to me :)

ETA: ITS GOODIE BOX DAY for Jackpot June, get $120 worth of product for ONLY $60

Can I just say that right now at my house the rap music is blaring at a descent volume from the stinkers room AKA Kameron, I dont mean stinker as in odor but antics and attitude. My Aunt says to me Kam is so sweet that sweet little grin of his is so sweet!! My reply yes he is sweet but hes a STINKER! My husband the basketball finactic is dribbling his basketball and shooting jump shots in the air. YEP theres alot of noise upstairs and downstairs. I think I will pop in my headphones and watch The Lovely Bones, just rented from the Red Box for a buck , gotta love that Red Box. You know whats scary the next generation wont know what Blockbuster Video is and will think its insane that once upon a time we actually drove to a video store to rent a movie for $4.99. Isnt that the weirdest thing ever. Soon we will place video stores up there with the 8 track LOL

Today layout is one of my absolute FAVORITES and will stay in my top favs. This is my nephew Johnny who is now 5, in the picture he is 1.

Arent those colors YUMMY, Girls Loft kit ingredients!! Isnt he YUMMY???

OOOHHHH, look what came on the FedEx truck on Monday. Yep I finally did it, I really needed it because I was doing double time cutting my Spellbinders on my Sixxiz. Its easy peesy with this baby, now I can invest in some of the extra large dies I have been eyeing. Check out the bling on it !!!

Its getting warm outside

Its beautiful outside and the weather as been good (windy) but good this lastg week. I am happy that spring is finally here, but I can feel the change in the temps.

Hope your all having a great Saturday. I smell someone grilling hot dogs in my neighborhood, AAHH the smells of spring/summer. Got my windows open and I hear the birds chirping and the cars whizzing by, enjoying the sounds of spring/summer too!

Check out my loot from a craft sale I stopped at on Thursdays. I picked up some SU chuncky glitter I have wanted for some time only $2 and lots of chip board for $2, $3 & $5. Tons of ribbon , I LOVE ribbon. Lots of FREE catalogs, those are always good for inspiration and ideas!! I wanted to buy more like buttons and textured cardstock, but gave myself a limit.

Hope you dont mind another layout, I have not created one thing all week, can you believe that. It amazes me that when I have the time, unlimited time to create I sometimes dont. Maybe its the summer time vibe, were your suppose to relax and take it easy. Well I definately took it easy this week. Like I said before I didnt do much of anything and it felt great!

For some reason I dont like to have my picture taken anymore and this shot would have never been scraped but you know you have to capture the silly not so coofed shots of your life. So here I am forcing my son to take a pic with me, can you tell he was not so thrilled.

Kit created using The Girls Loft March kit, how about those fabric alphabet stickers.

Another Layout to share

Hello blogging friends!!!

I cant believe this week is almost over, I feel like I havent got anything done. Back to work for me on Monday I have to accomplish a few things before the end of the week.

Heres another layout I did last week, my sweet husband thought this was ingenious of me to take my own picture LOL. I had to explain that I did not think of this on my own!

Nothing like stalking yourself LOL. I used my March Girls Loft Kit to create this page.

Off to the grocery store
