Here they are!

My cards with the Paper Popsicles Friday Freebies that is!

For this one I used Bella Blvd and Scenic Route pp, and I colored the image with Copic markers and I added Stickles to the icing as well.

This one I used Basic Grey Lemonade paper, cs and doily paper. I again colored the images with my Copic markers and added Stickles to the flowers and Diamond Glaze to the icing.

We had a flower swap at Paper Popsicles and I made these cuties for it. I used the Claudine Helmuth sticky back canvas to make some of the flowers. I was able to cut it with my Cricut fairly easily and had fun painting them with acrylic paint and added some detail with my Ranger Inkessentials white pen and brads my Making Memories. I used some Making Memories Chole's closet to make 2 more flowers and then I used some of the Scrap Within Reach pp from my September kit at Paper Popsicles to make one last funky square flower and the brad in that flower is new from the My Mind's Eye Abbey Road collection!

Well I am off to get a couple things done before I go to work this afternoon!

Where do I start today????

Well I guess I can start with today is my turn to post on the Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs blog. Be sure to go check out my Project here. Its a fall project using October Afternoon, a Cheeky Radish image colored with Copic markers and using the Home Plate Perfectly Shaped Build an Album by Midnight Oil Scrapbook designs.

Next up I found out 2 EXCITING bits of info yesterday!! First I found out I won A few of a DT member's favorite things from my FAVORITE My Mind's EYE!!! I CAN'T wait to see what I get!! And then later I received an e-mail from Jami at and she wants to publish one of my LO's in an upcoming issue!!

OK next up some eye candy!

So here is my card from last week at Paper Popsicles for the card sketch. This is made with October Afternoon pp and I used one the cool Wild Cards I won from their blog.

OK so if you look closely there is the shadow of the bee that was flying around on the card, and that darn piece of grass I didn't notice it till now! LOL!!

And here is my card for this week's sketch. What are those papers you ask. Hmmm... there's NO way its from my September kit!! ; ) The digital image is from the ALWAYS AWESOME Cheeky Radish, and the journaling spot is from October Afternoon.

Nature's beauty

While I was outside this morning taking pics of my cards I happened to look up at my flowers and notice this.
I have never taken the time to notice the morning dew before. It seems I am always too busy and it is such a neat thing to see, it reminds me that every so often we need to slow down and enjoy life!
I then took an even closer look and saw this guy taking in the warm morning sun. It was so neat, make sure you take some time to smell the roses along the way!

Ok so here are my cards I made with the Friday Freebie image. I hope you got yours! And don't forget to check back again on Friday for another freebie! ; )

Friday FREEBIE!!!!

Its time to head on over to Paper Popsicles blog and get your Friday FREEBIE!!! Her name is Elizabeth and she is just SOO cute!!! Remember that once Friday is over so is the FREE part! I had fun with Elizabeth and made this card with her and another Cheeky Radish image beach sign.

And then after our water park vacation and my fear of losing one of my children there I came up with this idea! I used a Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs take along album and the free image to create a lost info tag. The front has the cute little Elizabeth image and on the back the important info to contact me if my little one is lost! I used Zip Dry to glue the 2 acrylic covers together and the little chain is the perfect size to attach to the strap of a swimsuit! One important tip is to make sure you let the Zip Dry dry ALL the way on one side BEFORE doing the other side! Oh yeah and rub-ons move when you slide the glue and acrylic over them! OOPS!!

Now don't you just want her??!! Go get her now!!

And speaking of FAST I came home today to find the info letter about the boys' preschool and they are starting a week earlier now! And what was their reaction???? YEAH!!! Tears welled up in my eyes when they cheered! : ( And believe me after my day with them you would have thought I'd being doing the happy dance! I just know now that once they start school that's it the years are just going to disappear WAY TOO quickly! OK I NEED to stop I getting all teary eyed AGAIN!
