Creating yourself

Inspiration to make this card is from Pinterest.  The sentiment: Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself is from Unity.  Very clean and simple.  I used ink and blending foam.
Also, wanted to share a cute pic of my new desk piece (= LOL.  Our new puppy Sady loves to hang out with me
I was having blogger problems last night and earlier today.  I'm hoping they are all resolved!!!

Birds nest necklace

I saw this necklace tutorial a few days ago.  It was super cute and easy!  I had what I needed on hand.  Beading wire and beads.  Just string on the beads and twist the wire around...  I know I wrote the source down, but cannot find it at the moment!  If you know it please let me know and I'll post it! (=  Here is the necklace I made.

Thanks Lynn!!! (=

End of year teacher gifts

Thursday is the last day of school for the kids.  Here is a gift I put together for my daughters teacher.  I started with a beach bag.  I added a beach towel, Magazine, Dasani Water, Sunscrean and Aloe Vera.  I tied a small shovel on the outside filled it with swedish fish and typed: Hope you DIG your summer!

And another small gift is this little container filled with Smarties candies.  The tag reads: Thanks for making me so smartie.  (I've done these in the past). Cute, fun, easy and affordable! (= 

Here is a card made with my Paper Smooches stamps that I will include!

Clean and simple...

So much going on these days!! The kids are just about done with school.  I'm  really hoping for a relaxing summer and spending a little more time crafting.  Fingers crossed! (=  I also have a few projects I'd like to get done around the house.  The kids will still keep busy with basketball camp, Vacation Bible Schools, swimming lessons etc and before we know it August will be here and the girls will be starting Cheer and Soccer!!   Summers fly by all too fast!!
Here is a very clean and simple card using my A Muse stamps.  I paired the cute little beach bag with the sentiment: sending you sunshine.   
And our neighbors daughter graduated on Friday.  Here is a simple card with the cap cut from my silhouette machine. 

This was a small wood sign I made for her. 

and lastly here is a Congratulations banner made for her party.

Some exciting news at our house!

We are the proud owners of a sweet little puppy!!! (=  Yep, she's a little thing!! We've been holding off on getting a dog for awhile now , but I knew it would happen.  The kids were so excited.  It's kinda like having a new baby in the house! hehe (=   We named her Sadie!
Another fun find over the weekened.  This spinning card holder that I got for only $12.00!!! (= 

And last, but not least a cool picture I took.  We were heading out to see the puppy and we passed this small carnival.  I grabbed my camera as we were driving past and got this picture!!

Birthday wishes...

Just wanted to say "Happy Birthday" to my sweet little Laney who is turning 5 today.  Here are some more little pinwheels that I made up as party favors.
Here is a clean and simple birthday card.  The fun stamp is from Unity.

I was hoping to post some cute pics and my May photo mosaic, but again my computer is having issues and I've been using my sons laptop.  Just hoping I haven't lost any pictures.  It really is time for a new computer!
