Apple Of My Eye

Happy Saturday.  I promised Lilly I would load our layout of the month and of course I had forgotten to until I saw it in my scraproom this morning....sorry Lilly!! This is our September layout of the month at our LSS and Amy did an awesome job on the of the cutest ever...I didn't do mine exactly like hers but generally all elements are the same.  Cricut cart. used were Doodlecharms for the basket..Campout for the frames...Plantin Schoolbooks for the font and also the apples.  I love apples on a layout.  I didn't not use crackle paint on my letters as I didn't have any in the color I needed so I need to add that too my stash!! (imagine that!! :))  I hope to get some Halloween/Fall decorating done this weekend but who laid plans and all of that!! haha
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stoppin' by!! :)

Crafty Sunday

What a fun crafty Sunday.  Roger was spraying cotton so I decided to play in "my room" today.  Had several projects I wanted to finish and a couple I wanted to start.  I finished Selina's "fall banner" and she was very pleased...I will post a picture of the finished banner to share.  Then my next project start is a "SPOOKY TREE" for halloween.  I purchased a couple of clay flower pots from Michaels that were 40% off and of course I had a coupon with that.  I painted these pots a bright orange and punched out a circle out of my fiskars circle punch to use as a pattern for my black polka dots on the pot.  Then I put a layer of mod podge on this to seal it...I am making some ornaments out of wood and also some vintage prints from Scott and Martin's place (see on my side bar) and just sized them down to make a cute little embellie for the tree....I'm having so much fun with these craft projects.  I will post finished products in a couple of days when they are complete.  Have a great week everyone!!!

Fall Banner

I am in the mood to decorate....don't think I have been in that mood for about 2 yrs now.  I think as Martha Stewart would say "its a good thing"!!  My project today that I'm working on is actually for Selina and Josh (well mostly Selina!)  I am working on a fall banner.  I have taken thin chipboard and used George cricut cart and cut a triangle so they would be somewhat consistant.  Usually I just eyeball stuff!! LOL.Next layer was just kraft paper and then I used some Cloud Nine papers that I have had for awhile that had a fall look and made my "Lisa Pace Create Paper Flowers" and decorated just with different fall designs...leaves, apples, sunflowers and of course an ear of corn.  I am going to share what I have so far and hopefully this weekend I can put it together and make a finished product photo to share.  I really like how this turned out ....I may have to make me one!  Have a good Friday everyone!!!

Just A Quick HI!!!

We have been off on one of our "family" camping outings and I haven't had a minute to scrap.  I had a wonderful weekend with my sons/spouses and grandchildren and a few friends thrown in the mix.  I hope to get some photos made of a couple of projects this week and posted.  This weekend is layout of the month at my local scrapbook store so that will be my challenge to finish this week!!  Well tomorrow's hump day so I think I can make it 3 days this week...wink..wink!!
