My Own MS150 Bike Hero !

My Hubby was talking tonight about his training again to ride his bike in the MS150 this coming Spring. I am so proud of him for doing this again and raising more money for MS. I can't even begin to imagine riding 100 miles a day for 2 days! I will however be there again to cheer him and his team on to the finish line though. I remembered I still had this photo of him at the finish line from last year and decided it was time to scrap it. Our oldest daughter Crystal drove down from Dallas to be there and see her dad ride across the finish line with me. I love this pic of the three of us together.

I used MM Noteworthy pp, Red & Black Epoxy and Clear flowers, Bazzill cs, Maya Road journaling sheer and chipboard crown, misc sticker letters and misc ribbon accents. I used the MM distresser tool to rough up the edge of the photo mount and highlighted it with Ranger Dauber Acrylic Paint.

They will Always be Buddies

Over the recent holiday season, I took a charming picture of my daughter, Crystal and my granddaughter, Bianca while we were all enjoying an outing at a local festival. Their smiling faces just warmed my heart and when I saw this quote "There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart" I knew I had found the perfect wording to express how I feel about this photo.

As you may have guessed by some of projects I have posted on my blog that I am a huge Making Memories fan and their new Chelsea's Place collection inspired me to create a layout to showcase this photo that has become one of my all time favorites. Bianca is so devoted to her "Aunt Crystal" and I know they will "Always be Buddies".

This layout just fell together when I started pulling the postage stamp pp, delicious ribbons, chipboard words, paper flowers, buttons and plastic clear items and laying it on my creating table along with the photo. I loved using the clear photo mat more as a decorative element to highlight the girls smiling faces. I also had fun using the plastic clear colored elements underneath the chipboard words to add more diminsion.

Valentines Day Give Away !!

As you can see from my post below, I seem to have an overabundance of Valentines/LOVE Supplies! LOL -- I just can't seem to resist collecting those beautiful pink and red lOVE tokens.

Instead of packing them all away until next year, I thought I would make a nice big fat PRIZE PACKAGE OF LOVE ITEMS to give one lucky winner who post a comment on this thread about "Why they love Valentines Day". You have until 4 pm CST Thursday, February 14th to post your comment. I will randomly pick a winner and announce on my blog on Friday morning.

Even though Valentines Day will be over, everyone can use a little "LOVE" on their other projects too! Good Luck and Happy Valentines Day everyone !!

Whew..I almost panicked!

I sat down today to work on my Valentines Cards and just for a second panicked and thought I didn't have enough supplies to make some really cute cards. Then I remembered I had bought a bunch of embellishments AFTER VDay last year and pulled them out. Then I pulled every "love and heart" themed out of my stash and put on my scrap table. Boy was I surprised when I turned around and the entire table was covered in red, pink and white !! It looked so pretty I had to take a picture. And didn't I already mentioned that I am slightly obsessed with all things Valentines Day related...here is the proof!

LOVE is in the AIR !!!

It's February and "LOVE" is in the AIR !! I just love all the red and pink and white decor this time of year. I was excited to put out my Valentines decor around the house this weekend and it got me in the mood to create some Valentine cards to send to family and friends.

Today while the rest of the scrap world was glued to QVC, I was inspired to dig through my stash of Valentine items and found a cute set of Making Memories Wall Decor Hearts I bought last year and never used. I had such fun using those as a base and creating a V-Day Wall Hanging to decorate the door to my scrapbook oasis. I played with my crop-a-dile to create punched holes around two of the hearts, some doodling, some glitter sticker letters and a few cute valentine embellishments and wallah.....it was ready to hang. Hope my wall art inpsires you to create a little something special to display for Valentines Day this year!

And the Winner is........

I am finally getting around to posting more pictures from the CKC event and now have a grand announcement to make. I entered the Paper Crafts Magazine Card Contest on a lark and...

A friend dared me to enter one of the sponsor's contest and so the day before CKC I decided I had time to make a card to enter. I was so surprised and thrilled to have won. My prize was a large stack of CK and Paper Crafts Magazine Books on card making, all of which I didn't already own so I was happy to have them. Pretty good for someone who never really makes cards. And, CK said that there was a very good chance my card would be published in the Papercrafts Magazine later this year, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

To make the card, I used mostly the new Making Memories Noteworthy line (pp, ribbons, velvet letters), Bazzill cardstock, a Jenni Bowlin chipboard frame, a Studio G Marah Johnson stamp, Cats Eye and Stazon Inks, Making Memories shimmer glitter, plus some adorable pearl embellishments. It is hard to tell in the picture put the frame is pop dotted to stand out around the stamped image in the middle.

So without further ado, here are the pictures of the winning card and me with the prize package!
