Jamberry nail wraps?!?!?!?!

LOOOOOOVE!!!!!!
A couple months ago, my design team sister, Leanne, became an independent consultant for Jamberry nails.  After she posted a few pictures on Facebook, I decided to give them a try and OH BOY....I'M HOOKED!!! 

Those of you that follow my videos on YouTube, know I ALWAYS have my nails painted.  I LOVE PRETTY NAILS.  Although I keep them short, I have a long nail bed which makes my nails appear long.   I personally LOVE short nails.

Here is my first try at these Jamberry nail wraps:
and I also created a video showing how I applied them:

Check back next Monday for an update on how they held up ;)

Thrifty Thursday

Thrifty Thursdays have to be one of my favorite project assignments with My Creative Time.  I always love to use up my scraps vs. putting them away.  This week, I used up a scrap piece of paper that I used to create my beach theme card from release week.  It was already distressed in orange and pink so it was perfect for my seahorse.

I'm also really in love with the Bunch of Fun Circles set from My Creative Time.  LOVE making shape cards with the wavy one.
Supplies:

Wishing all my bloggy friends a fun and safe 4th of July weekend.   See you all next week!

Hugs, T

Ninja Turtle Party!!

Happy Tuesday!! 

I'm so excited that this is a short week AND this entire month, I am off every Monday!! Work has been crazy so I need a little break ;)  We've also been working so much around the house but love the way it's coming out.  There is still a lot to do but it's coming along.

So this past weekend was my nephews Ninja Turtle theme birthday party.  My sister in law asked me to create the banner and to make the centerpieces.

I had posted these photos on Instagram a couple weeks ago:



The Ninja Turtle faces for the center pieces were larger than the ones I created for the banner.  Then I also cut out two stars for each centerpiece and added the "G" for his name and the "5".  Here are some pictures from the party.  My sister in law bakes so all the chocolate covered oreos, cupcakes, the cake, the cake pops, rice crispy chocolate covered treats and the chocolate covered/sugar coated marshmallow treats were made by her.  SHE'S AMAZING!!!!!
