Finished Product

Well I finished the doll dress for Lexie's American girl doll to wear Halloween. She was very pleased and did think it looked enough like her costume to pass!! Now I have the fever to sew more doll clothes. I am so involved in ATC swaps on the Fiskateer board that I have got to get busy doing the swaps I'm promised to. Also I would like to do a HUGE shout out to my friend Laura Casey who was named Fiskateer of the Year for 2008. She is so very deserving of this award.- We are having a Fiskateer gathering on Nov 15 in Nashville and I am so looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Tomorrow night is Chase and Alyssa's first basketball game so I'm excited about going to that and hope to get some decent shots to scrap of course. Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween. Hope to have some goolishly wonderful pics to post by the weekend!!

Are you ready for Halloween???

Well maybe almost. I have a couple of projects to finish and then I hoping to get lots of good pictures to scrap. I am posting one last Halloween card that I made last week and also what I have been working on all weekend. Lexie, my granddaughter loves American Girl Dolls and she called and wanted to know if I could make her an outfit for her doll to match her "Little Miss Muffet" outfit. Last year we did a 50's poodle skirt for her and a matching one for her doll. Of course I could never so no to my grandchildren so with high hopes that I could recreate "Little Miss Muffet" I got down a tub of doll patterns and starting putting things together. I have posted a couple of pictures of her outfit which I think Sissy ordered on line and I am hoping to put the finishing touches on the doll's outfit tomorrow night. It doesn't look exactly but close enough!!! I will post a pic later on in the week. I have also been making corn hole bags all weekend. 4 sets to be exact...needless to say my sewing machine is "smoking"...Have a great Monday everyone!!!

Campin'--Scrappin' Weekend!!

What a beautiful weekend we had. It was alittle chilly on Saturday but we campers braved the weather...actually we camped in our camper in the back yard!!! Big Daddy hooked her up for us and Brady, Savannah, Robin and I camped!! I had promised them forever to do this and where the time goes I don't know....anyway we had a ball. The Fiskateers had an online crop all day Saturday so I tried to get on and participate as much as possible so the girls and I decided to craft some Sat. night and craft we did....I think we bored Brady silly but at least he had UTUBE to keep him busy watching car burnouts and racing!!! I finished up my Halloween book from Bettye's awesome class and I will post some pics this week. Hope everyone has a great week!!!

Halloween Cards

Well I'm still on this Halloween thing!! I finished the grandkids Halloween cards tonight and wanted to post one. I used the same motief that I did with the ATC spooky cards. I love, love that haunted house and the ghosts with the stickles so I decided to create their cards the same way instead of the traditional pumpkin. I used Paper Dolls cricut cart. to create all of this. After Bettye's cricut class at my LSS and using paper dolls so much I got my courage up!! see it is kinda hard to figure out which prompt is for which design, just a little challenge right Bettye!! That is the most versitile cart. I have ever seen. Okay so I need to get ready for bed. Lilly and I have a scrap-o-dex class tomorrow night and we are "draggin'" our friend Marsha with us. She has never been to one of our classes so we are hoping to capture her in our scrappin' web!! Have a good Thursday everyone..

Another ATC!!

Well I have officially finished all of the ATC swaps that I have signed up for (at the moment!!LOL) I just have to get them all postal. I am posting a picture today of my Thanksgiving ATC for my Fiskateer friend and fellow Nifty Fifty girl Laura...I wanted something that had a distressed look and detail. Well I just can't leave anything alone so I stamped an image and colored it with markers. I am collecting Copics (thanks MicheleO) and I'm slow, only have 5....they are so pricey I have to have a coupon at Hobby Lobby to afford them but believe me they are worth every penny. They are awesome to work with....moving on I wanted possibly burlap but then I picked up a tissue type wrapping paper that something from Pottery came in so I crumpled it up and inked it and stuck it on with ribbon and a button for a shimmer (you know it has to have either glitter, bling or shimmer for me!!) I sprayed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. It's certainly not perfect but I had fun making them. I'll post about my class tomorrow but it will be a minute before I post my was a MAJOR project but it is so cute....Have a great Tuesday everyone...

Productive Saturday

Well I actually think I had a pretty productive Saturday. I managed to get some fall decorations up, vaccum, finish laundry, go have my car cleaned up and finished up a mini album that is a Christmas gift for one of my daughter-in-laws. I love days when I seem to get more done. I'm really excited about a couple of classes I have next week at Sassy Scrapper. Bettye is teaching a "Little Yellow Bicycle" Halloween Haunted House mini book. It is soooo cute and lots and lots of details. I will post some pics next week. I am posting today my Cricut layout from Thursday night. I had so much fun doing this layout. We used Paper Dolls cartridge and George for the word EEK!!!! We ran the tree and the kitty cat through the Cuttlebug which really adds dimension to the project. I wanted to put some last years pics of the kids but I have refrained myself I will wait till this year!! LOL...

Cricut layout

I just put a photo on my September Cricut class layout. Bettye always has a super project for us. This layout was one that could be used for any occasion. I used it to of course display pictures of my kids/grandkids (my favorite subjects!!). We have been incorporating the Cuttlebug on several of our layouts lately as well and I love the look when we use embossing folders. We got a sneak peak today our our October layout and it is awesome. I will share it with you maybe next week...Have a good Tuesday!!

I'm Hooked on these ATC's!!!!

Well I have joined in on a couple of more ATC swaps...they are so much fun and I love swaping and getting everyone's work in return. I am going to post a couple that I have finished and I lack my Thanksgiving one...I haven't worked it out in my mind yet but I'm sure I will. We had Roger a 60th birthday party this weekend at Bubba and Michelle's new home. It was so nice and so much fun. All of the kids were there except Jamie and David and they were both in a wedding in Knoxville. I'm gonna post a couple of pics from that. I hope everyone has a wonderful week..
