A day at the water park!

Summer is here and the kids are all out of school = less time for crafting! (=   I am definitely enjoying the time with the kids, sleeping in a bit, and not running around as much!   We had a fun outing to a small water park!  The girls had a GREAT time!!!

A Wagon Full of Love

I was over on the MFT blog and saw they had a fun challenge.  Use either Cork and or felt.  Well, I love both so I used BOTH!! (=   The clouds and hearts are both made from felt and I cut the cork for the bottom (hill).   I used another of my fav stamps from MFT!  You can do so much with it!! TFL! (=

You're sew lovely

Here is a card I made using Sew Lovely by Lawn Fawn.  I bought some seam binding and colored it with cherry blossom antiquing solution.  I stamped the dress and then cut it out.  I then took a piece of fabric and stamped the dress again and cut it out.  You can't go wrong with Kraft paper! (=

Thanks for making me brighter

So it's the last day of school for my kids today!  The year really flew by.  I have one heading to second grade and my son will be going to  middle school next year! Scary!!   I still can remember his first day of Kindergarden.  We have both made so many great friendships along the way! It's a little sad! 
I found these cute little glass light bulbs and knew they would make fun teacher gifts!!  The flowers were made using various scraps of paper and punches!! TFL! (=

A Birthday Party!!

We celebrated Delaney's 4th Birthday with her friends on Saturday at Sweetest Thing Cupcakes!  The girls had a GREAT time!  They had dress up princess accessories for the girls, small sandwiches with strawberries, pretzels and juice. They got to do a fun craft  and have their faces painted!  The best part was decorating delicious CUPCAKES!!! So much fun!!!   So glad her friends were able to come and celebrate with us!!

Sketchy Thursdays and a quick card

I did this layout for Sketchy Thursdays!  It looked like a fun layout to work with.  Sometimes it seems harder to work with a sketch but, it did come together O.K.  I used some rub ons that say: sugar and spice and every thing nice.  Thats what little girls are made of...

Had to put in a quick card! I found this stamp on Clearance at Craft Warhouse and can't pass up a good deal! (=   Hope everyone has a GREAT Friday!!! Thanks for stopping by! (=

Girls necklaces

Just a little something different today.   I love paper crafting and I also like to dabble in other craft projects.  I don't sew but, I LOVE fabric! (=  So what can you do with fabric if you don't sew??  Well you can make fabric flowers!  There are so many great tutorials out there right now on flowers!  These were just made with fabric, felt and my cuttlebug!  With 2 girls it's always fun to make girly things!!
