Happy Monday!

Good Morning Fellow Scrappy people!

I have recently finished my yearly calendar. Yes, it's February and thank goodness it allowed me more time. I was sick at the beginning of the year so I am a little behind. Who am I kidding...I'm seriously behind but with school and kids and house...its bound to happen right? 

Anywho...I have the first layout of the calendar

I will pop in from time to time to share my layouts. Hoping to get more crafting done. So inspired by New crafting blogs and you tubers.

Have a wonderfully scrappy day!

Happy New Year!

Hello Crafty peeps!

I am on christmas break from school and had some time to create some things. I made some christmas cards but didn't get a chance to send them out.

I wasn't really in the spirit of Christmas this year. Losing my mom this year has put a bit of a damper on things. I know she is always with me but I miss her so I made some gifts for my brothers and sisters.

I usually make a calendar every year. Last year I documented some of the highlights of 2014 on the 2015 calendar I made. My sister loved looking at all the months and said she wanted one so I made her one. I have yet to give it to her. But here are some of the layouts I made on it.

I am loving the way this turned out. I used a little bit of everything. The base of the calendar was a cinch calendat pack I picked up in bulk online at

  • project life cards
  • disney frozen papers
  • dcwv calendar paper stack
  • martha stewart halloween embellishments
  • simple stories-say cheese 
  • White chalkboard dazzle sayings and jewels
  • various card stock
  • fiesta dcwv stack
  • cosmo cricket and AC wood veneer embellishments
Also most of the photos I used were from 2015 which is kinda great since now they are scrapbooked and she can just put them in a book. Loving this idea of killing off two birds with one stone. Now...I just gotta start working on mine. 

While my niece Ana was in town, she made a page too. I am thinking of including it in my book. 
I will use the fuse to create a 12x12 page since she used an 8 1/2 x 11 page with this page in it's own sleeve. 

Well tonight is the last night I will have all my nieces and nephew so thanks for coming to check me out. 

We hope you have a wonderful New Year filled with health, happiness and scrappy goodness!

Inspiration from my Mother

Hello All,
As I said on my haul video, my mom loves butterflies and she loved to make wreaths. So I used the stuff I bought at Michaels and made this wreath. I used Tim Holtz Paint in copper on the V and dazzle stickers to outline the it too. I need to find my mom's wreaths stands but other than that it was pretty easy. My mom passed this summer so her spirit was definitely with me when I created it. I wanted it be a combination of halloween and fall but fall won. Oh well, Now I can make a halloween one! HA

Thanks for looking!
