Party for Teacher

My daughters teacher (love her) just got her masters and graduated on Wednesday, so one of the other moms and I decided to have a surprise party for her today at 2:30. We both told our children Cameron and Sloane to go in and tell all the other children in their class. We told them to make sure not tell the teacher about our little surprise, and so far so good.

I made a 13×9 cake cut it and half and decorated them like pencils. I saw this done in Family Fun magazine and thought it would be cute, I LOVE this magazine they have some of the cutest things to do with children. Well we just have a few more hours to go, I hope it will be a surprise.

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

I saw Pam’s card and knew I wanted to use it as a jumping off place. I love the Priceless set and use it so much (I bought it basically for the swirls and never knew I would use the whole set as much as I do). Here is what I did with her design.

Stamps: Priceless, Warm Words Paper: Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, White, Flowers for You DS Ink: Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise Accessories: Certainly Celery – Lovely Lilac – Regal Rose – Tempting Turquoise brads, ticket corner punch, dimensionals, sponge.
By the time you read this we will be spending the final day on our trip in Rome. We have toured Italy and are probably exhausted and broke. We all fly home tomorrow to go our separate ways. Time passes very quickly. Suddenly your little ones are grown up and making a life on their own. Take the opportunity to spend time with them as much as possible. I will treasure these past 14 days for the rest of my life.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Scrappin’ Color Challenge

I had my Simply Scrappin’ Card Making class this weekend and here are 8 of the fun cards that we made with the Tie the Knot Kit. As you can tell I am really liking these Kits for Card Making. I hope everyone is doing well and I will talk to you soon.

Color Challenge Monday

As you read this today I have just spent the day sightseeing in Rome. We are now on the down side of our vacation. I can’t wait to get back and share my trip with everyone.
Candice and I chose our colors based on kits/collections in the catalog. I really loved the Rose Cottage Simply Scrappin’ kit. I ordered it quite a while ago and hadn’t the courage to cut into it. I saw several blogs where they use kits to create 36 cards. I decided today would be the day I cut into my kit. I have created 4 cards so far which I will share with you today. I will continue to create the cards and post them periodically so you can see what I came up with. Here are my first 4.

Stamps: Small Script (retired) Paper: Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Rose Red, Soft Sky (all were in the kit), PP from kit Ink: Chocolate Chip Accessories: Love & Happiness Rub Ons (Sale-e-bration), ribbon, Hemp Twine, various pieces of die cuts (from the kit), Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky brads.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Sketch Saturday

It is my favorite day for posting. I just love Sketch Saturday when it is my turn. I browse the blogs and see which sketch catches my attention. I read Taylor’s blog every day. She has some amazing cards and projects to look at. I saw this sketch and knew I wanted to give it a try. Here is her sketch and my card.

Stamps: Friendship Blooms, One of a Kind Paper: Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, white, Nana’s Kids DS (DCWV) Accessories: Certainly Celery & Pixie Pink markers, white grosgrain ribbon, green dew drops, dimensionals, sticky tape.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
