Viva Las Vegas...

I have been waiting to scrap these pictures since April!!
I could not find the right paper...well, I finally did!!
CTMH new paper Roxie is perfect!!
I have to say this is much better in person.
The colors are perfect together.
The layout idea is from Magic (still my favorite)
Out of the Hat page 82.

Here is a close up of page one...I used the new milepost shapes
and the letters are thickers (I was to lazy to use my new
CTMH cricut cartridge). I am trying to "consume" what
I have and NOT "collect" the stuff I have.

Page two...
I tried a new trick to add more photos.
I cut a 12 x 12 vertical pocket page protector
in half and then folded it accordion style.

Here is a close up of how the pages flip out...
I was able to add all the pictures I wanted and didn't
have to do another two page layout.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this idea.

I will be scrapping today with a couple of my scrappy
friends...hoping to get a few more layouts done today.

Let me know how I can help you get started preserving your
memories and creating beautiful books for your family
to cherish for years to come.

Another sneak peek...

I have been a very busy girl...
If I keep up with this pace I should be caught up with my
scrapping in no time!
I am LOVING the new paper packs and the workshops
on the go!
This layout is from Typeset workshop on the go
(bonus layout) I changed a couple of things and
added the buttons.
Everything is from CTMH.

I used my new CTMH cricut cartridge to cut out
the scalloped squares, the stars and all the little
circles with the stamped letters.

I also added brads to my layout.

I will be crafting all day today!!
Want to join me? come on over!

Happy Birthday card

Happy Monday!!
Here is a card I made using a few scraps I
had left over from my layout from a couple days ago.
I am always needing a birthday
card. This stamp set from CTMH is perfect.
The stamp set is Birthday Wish and the paper
is Fan fare, the sketch is from CPS #125
sponsored by SCRS.

I am working on a couple layouts today and will
post them tomorrow...I recieved my first
of two shipments of new product from
CTMH on Saturday (doing the happy dance!)
I had a migraine most of the weekend so I didn't
get a chance to play with them until today.
So, I will post some more sneak peeks
throughout the week.
If you see anything you would like to purchase
or would like to host a card or scrapbooking
party please contact me at

Have a crafty day!

Family Time

I'm back!!!
It's been a long time since I've been crafty!!!
I haven't blogged since March!!! I just lost my
Mojo...I think I've kinda found it again.
I spent 3 days at CTMH convention last week and
I am feeling inspired again. I will be revamping my blog
this weekend (if I can figure out how to work all this stuff)
Here is a layout I did...

I used some old product I have had forever!!
I used a CTMH stamp for the "time" and my cricut
to cut out the numbers.

I will update my blog soon about all the new and fun
CTMH goodies...I should be getting my order
from convention tomorrow!!! I will be stalking the
Fed Ex truck tomorrow...and for sure I will post
sneak peaks at all the new product.
Have a great day!!
