Happy 2012!

Being it is a new year, I thought I'd try to get back on the blog wagon. Life got crazy busy there for awhile! Good intentions and all that. Just to make sure I don't get overwhelmed with too many plans and projects this year I am promising to "start slow and taper off"! This way I may surprise myself and accomplish more than I thought. Here's to new adventures!

Sweet 16 and Other Ramblings

My how the summer has flown by! Blogging has been the last thing on my mind this sumer (obviously, as seen by the major lack of posts!). I am planning on getting a lot of fun projects and scrapbook LO's done and posted now that the kids are back in school. I may even get The Blend back up and running.

To get things started I wanted to share the Sweet 16 party invites I made for Hannah's big birthday coming up soon. I totally craft-lifted (i.e., STOLE) the idea from Easy Made Invitations. Thank you Lindsay for the perfect invite for this event! She has the instructions and paper sizes on her site. (Oh, and if anyone needs black size A9 envelopes for a projects like this, let me know.....I had to order 50 at a time and only used 20!) Here is a picture of the invites in process, pretty darn simple and perfect for my Sweetie.

Happy Weekend and Happy Creating!

Finally found some time to hide away in the craft room ad get some scrapbook layouts done. Felt so nice to  dig through photos and play. These pics are all from Spring 07 when the kids and I went to Seattle Center with our friend Lori. I sure miss the vibe of Seattle...and the coffee!
And the highlight of the day for Luke....the Grossology Exhibit! Ewwie!

Hope everyone is having a happy and fun filled summer so far!

Color Challenge

Trying a new challenge at CR84FN. Color challenges often stump me to no end! This week's was Plum, Light Plum and Khaki. Here's my take:
Inside it says "A little pick up for you". Sending this to my grandma, she can always use a little pick up!

Birthday Sundaes - Pearls & Lace

This week's Birthday Sundaes challenge was a lot of fun. I got to try a new cartridge for my Cricut and play with some embellishments I don't always go for when making cards.
Inside it says "Happy Birthday!" Enjoy and go check out the other entries!
