Happy Sunday!
I hope everyone is enjoying there weekend and hopefully getting something crafty in. Today I wanted to bring you something I have been wanting to try but was not able to do until last week on my much deserved vacation.

I made stick pins! I am very excited on how they turned out I can't wait to make more.

I would also like to show you a picture that I took on the way coming back home from my annual family reunion.
I just love the trees and the mountain views traveling these roads.

Well, I am off to try and get in some crafting before going to my in-laws to celebrate my brother and sister in-laws birthday.

Those Eyes

Good Morning!
Today it is supposed to be 100 degrees outside so I will not be leaving the house today and to my great surprise they have scrapbooking shows on One of the new things that look interesting is the new Martha Stewart stamp around the page set but I have yet to master punch around the page so I will not be ordering maybe wait til it's available in the stores apparently in September.

Today I bring you a cute little layout I did of my niece. I love this picture of her and it was by fluke that I got this close-up of her.

I used the April Swirlydoos kit on this layout and the Martha Stewart double loops corner punch to create the edges on each corner.

Hope you have a great day!

Happy Wednesday!

WOW! I can’t believe my last post was in May. To say life has been a little busy would be an understatement it’s been absolutely CRAZY!!!!! at work which has left me with not much home life lately but things at work are starting to slow down hopefully. The best thing is I am on VACATION this week!

Since I have last blogged I have had some great events happen since I last shared with you guys

• My Husband and I celebrated 15 years of marriage. It’s hard to believe that much time has passed

• My nephew graduated high school. We were a little unsure there for a while but he did it and we are so proud of him

• Attended the Great American Scrapbook Convention. It was so much fun but was smaller than it usually was in previous years.

I was able to slip in some scrapbooking through all of the craziness and have some cards and pages to show you.
