Leap Around The World Blog Hop!

As one of the 50 international host blogs, I am gearing up now for the upcoming Let's Scrap "Leap Around the World" February blog hop!! This fun event will start at 10:00am on February 1 and end on February 29th at 11:59pm according to the main page clock on the Let's Scrap website (your clock may vary, so check the time difference).
I would love it if you joined me in this big hop! There are several things you can do RIGHT NOW to be prepared:
  • Make sure you are signed up as a follower on my blog.
  • Find all those scraps of paper you have been setting aside for the last 5 years. You will need them because the blog hop is all about making CARDS!
  • Clean off your scrap table and put the pizza delivery number on speed dial!
  • Oh, wait, scratch the pizza delivery have all month to hop!!
OK, a few more details. You did read correctly: there are 50 blog hosts! Once you have joined Let's Scrap, at each blog, you will get two chances to win some blog candy (aka: booty, prizes)! Do the math! You will have 100 chances to win free stuff...and good stuff, too! This is also the perfect opportunity to restock your card stash! The first chance comes when you join/follow each blog and leave a comment. The second chance comes when you use the card sketch on each blog to create a card, layout or other project based upon the card sketch appearing on each blog--they are all different! You then must post your creation in the Let's Scrap website gallery, then go back to each blog and leave a second comment linking back to your gallery post. Don't be are doing only one card at a time! Our hope is that you will visit every blog, but, remember, you have the whole month of February to do this.

I will be #34 on the hop!

Looking forward to seeing you "at the hop."

Hugs to all and God bless!

This is my grandson who loves hats and neckties! He is such a sweet little character. He loves life and seems to have ways of entertaining not only himself but everyone else. The papers are from the "GUY" pad I bought last spring. The journal box is hidden under the first picture. The font is from my cricut cartridge "Tear Drop". The stars and font on the journal tag are sizzix. I love these pictures but sure wish they would have been a little clearer.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless each of you.

Be You

As keeping to my vow to scrap more this year, here is my second layout for the year! Man, I am patting myself on the back as this doubled the amount of layouts I think I have done in the past 3 years! lol Anyway, this is my youngest daughter's youngest. He is such a little character. He still loves for you to take pictures of him and is always willing to pose. I used this week's challenge sketch from Let's Scrap.
I did change it a bit by adding the two smaller pictures in the corner. I also hid the journal box under a photo. These pictures were taken last October down in the canyon under Perrine Bridge. The boys love to go there and have picnics.

Thanks for stopping by. God bless.

January card

There is a little group on face book that is having a monthly challenge of making Christmas cards with the hope of getting a few cards made before the Christmas rush! This is my card for January. I used a new stamp that I just received this past month. I am still trying to learn copics so played with them a little. I promised myself I had to learn to use them and learn to like using them this year! lol The papers are from my stash and have no clue as to what brand they are or how long they have lived here.

Challenges I am entering:

Simply Create- layers layers and more layers I think this card has 10 layers of paper total

Sentimental Sunday...Snow, Blue or Glitter used blue copics on the image and then also had stickles to the stay and the baby's halo

Creative Inspirations Paint
-something old......patterned papers, charm, ribbon and rhinestones....have no idea how long these have been in my stash but at least a couple years now.

Dream Valley- anything goes

Fashionable Stamping - new stash. The stamp is new....and used some of my new copics too!

The Squirrel and the Fox-something new...stamp

2 Sisters- things with wings...the two little birds!

Our Daily Bread- in with the new...out with the old

Fairytale- something new...stamp

Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless you all.

Finally back to scrapping!

Here is my first layout for 2012! I am excited to get back to it but am also surprised how hard it was to get started. Really feel like a beginner for sure. Anyway, this is my youngest grandchild when he was visiting a couple years ago. My youngest daughter loves spending time with her nieces and nephews and was happy when the 5 nephews got to spend Spring break with her and her family. She had lots of fun things for them to do and one was coloring Easter eggs. Mace took this all too serious but had lots of fun.

Thanks for stopping by. Now off to start a card! lol God bless you.

Starting off the New Year with Birthday card for Grand daughter

Yes, the new year means I need to get started on all the spring birthdays. My eldest grand daughter will be 12 tomorrow. Cannot believe how old my grands are making me!

She loves horses so bought this stamp just for this card. I hope she likes it as much as I thought she would. lol She tends to like the darker colors and teals and browns and such so that is what I chose. The little calendar was a free printout that I found on Pinterest. Am loving all the great finds there. The Birthday sentiment may look a little crooked on the bottom but it is actually mounted on an action wobble so it jiggles when moved. And you can see that I finished it off with stickles as always.

Challenges I am entering are:

Crafty Ribbons- sketch.....which I turned sideways.

Paper Sundaes
- something old-flowers, stickles and die cuts....something new- 3 stamps

Bunny Zoe's Crafts- fancy fold card

Kaboodle Doodles

Paper Creations- die cuts or punches. Used an old quikutz for the vines and leaves and sizzlet dies for the name

Cutie Pie
- sentiment

Crafts 4 Eternity- sentiments Thanks Pinky for the heads up!

Thanks for stopping by. May God richly bless your 2012!
