Throwback Thursday Birthday

Emma's new "throwback" challange is for birthday. I used the Cricut cartridges "Just Because" Cards and "Sweet Treats". The face on the cone is Peachy Keens "Princess Face" assortment.  Of course "Stickles" for the bling and the cardstock in "Stampin Up". I went to an 8 hours crop last night and had fun with the ladies creating this for the challange.

Another one I made for the challange. Not sure which one I will enter but,  I better decide since it has to be in soon.

Favorite Holiday challange for My Creative Time

Another Thursday challange for Emma. This time we were to create for our favorite holiday. Mine of course is Christmas, more for giving and seeing the happy, smiling faces of my kids when they were growing up and now my Grandkids when they open our presents. The getting together of families and friend. So here is my card.

Happy Scrappin,

Peachy Keen Challange

Our challange was to create  for a favorite memory of a vacation. Well, one year I took my two youngest children, Dan, and Veronica to Tennesee. We stayed at the'Grand Old Opry' Hotel  for one night. What an experience, it was fantastic. While there, since my Daughter has a FANTASTIC voice we decided(ok I decided) since there was an open mike nite at the Nashville Palace to have her sing with their live band. What a thrill to be sitting in the audience and watch her. So here is what I created. Hope you like it.

It's getting there

Last night my Daughter, Veronica called at midnight to see if I was still awake. Of course I was, trying to catch up on all my dvr'd shows. She said she had something for me to look at. OMGosh, the start of my NEW blog. She had shown me before the lady she chose for me, but all else was a BIG surprise. Yes, my desk is a MESS (that's how I roll) and my dog is always VERY close by (that's how SHE rolls). I'll post a picture of both later. Stay turned cuz there will be surprises that happen when you hover over (can't tell ya) things. I am sooo very proud of my Daughter, Veronica's work , I hope she doesn't charge too much. Oh you said it's FREE-What a GOOD Daughter.  Love you honey.

Ice Cream Girl

Ice Cream. Ice Cream, Let's all scream for Ice Cream! Thought I would try to create a birthday card for a little girl. Waiting to hear from all of you so that I could use this as a give-away. Make sure to comment and leave your email.

I know my blog is in the VERY FIRST STAGES, in fact my Daughter, Veronica is THE BESTEST blog designer and I just can't figure out what I want for her to do for MY blog. I'm like.. OH I like this, NO I like that, Oh no what about this. I'm sure I'm her worst nightmare, but she loves me. So hang in there and soon you will see a wonderful, beautiful, creative blog (when I make up my mind).

Now to the good stuff, I used Cricut Paper Dolls, Create a Critter. Peachy Keen Everyday Faces and Princess Faces, Stampin Up! paper, button brads, white jelly roll pen.

Thanks for looking,

Another picture for Throwback Thursday at My Creative Time

Thought I would send in another one to Emma at My Creative Time. I have found a new  way to keep me busy. A Cricut! Had I only known it was this fun, I would have kept the first two I had years ago. I guess I just was not ready to play then. So...this entry called for something 'baby' with an older cartridge if we did not have "New Arrival". I did not have it, I used  Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. The other items included, Gelly Roll white pen, Stampendous Dog paw stamp w/Versamark, Stampin Up paper and of course Peachy Keen Princess Face stamps. I'm so loving this new machine. Hope you enjoy.
