Miami Dolphins mini

Hi everyone!!! I decided to join in on Ted's challenge which can be found HERE.

It was so much fun to make this mini for my sister and her family. They LOVE the Miami Dolphins!!! She had these pictures that were awesome so I took advantage and joined the challenge. We were to make a valentine gift for someone but the project could NOT have the color red and it HAD to be the colors of an NFL team. This was perfect since the Dolphin colors are teal and orange.

Here is a video on the mini followed by some pictures.

Be sure to check out Ted's blog Happily Ever Crafter which can be found on my side bar!!

Hugs, T

2010 Desk Calendar/Mini Album

This project is what got my creative juices flowing again.......I made this 2010 desk calendar/mini album for my friend Christina. I printed all the calendars from THE CUTTING CAFE using the 2010 calendar set. This set comes with the calendars in circle and square and each month comes in 3 different sizes. You have to check out Regina printable stamps.....they are ALL amazing!!!

For this project I used the Vintage Findings Collection from MM, just a tad bit of the Recollections Autumn collection and for the Halloween Page, I used the MM Halloween collection. Lots of prima lace, prima flowers, and glimmer mist.

Hope you like it!!

HELLO EVERYONE!!!!! I'm back!!!

I know I have been missing in action but I had a really tough husband was unemployed for most of the year but finally got a job the week of Christmas - YAY!! Then about 2 weeks before Christmas, my dad fell off a ladder onto concrete and had to be air lifted to the Trauma center with severe head injuries. He had internal bleeding in his head in 3 different areas which was causing swelling and pressure to the brain. We all received the BEST New Years was sent home from the hospital and is doing much better. He will still be a bit aggressive and with head aches but all in all, he is here with us and doing great.

Here are a few projects I had done the last couple months. My creative juices have not been there for me but I didn't give us.

Hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year!!!

I also just recently completed a mini desk calendar/2010 mini album using the 2010 calendar set from The Cutting Cafe. Stay tuned for a pictures slideshow and Utube video.

Big hugs,

I used Rangers Gold Paint Dabber and glimmer mist in Red Velvet, Old Lace and Coffee Shop. Hope you like it.

Here is a project I made using the rose:
