Any Holiday--First Birthday

Happy Saturday to all you folks out there!!

I hope the weather is beautiful, 
and you are all able to enjoy it!

Today sees us with a new challenge over on 

 HIMCR #205 - Any Holiday!

Any Holiday, folks!

With the sponsor being our fearless
leader, Laurie 
from Hiding In My Craft Room

The giveaway is a Cricut Robot Party Cartridge!
Awesome sauce!

I knew I wanted to make a birthday
card for my great-niece whose
birthday is this weekend, 
today, actually.
And I wanted to use my Cricut.
I originally planned on making a cute
Sesame Street card.


4 days later, lots of frustration, tears
and ripped cardstock, 
I still did not have a card. 
It was not working--my Cricut
was giving me uber headaches.

So, come Friday, I still
did not have a card for the birthday girl.
Then, I guess because I was under
pressure or what, 
I finished a card under 30 mins.
Not at all what I had originally planned.
I did get it done.
Turned out alright, I guess.
So dang frustration, not being to able my initial idea.
But, it is kinda cute..I guess. lol
The paper used are Imaginisce (base), 
Dear Lizzy (stripe)
balloons are from DCWV, 
the balloon die is from Provocaft.
The gems are from Prima, 
and the twine is from stash.

that is it for me for now.
Preparing to go down to Montreal
for the birthday party--
yes, a kiddie party, and yes,
 I will have Advil for my headache.
But it should be all good!
My sidekick, April, is quite excited.
Take care, and enjoy the beautiful day!

Be safe. Get crafty!

Love together

Happy Saturday!!

What a week it has been.

I am so relieved that it is Saturday!
New day, right?

New challenge, too, 
over on the 

This week, it is all about
LOVE. Amour!

Any project with

Our sponsor is the every so fun

The Design Team were given a choice of images to 
work with this week.
Here is what I created:
Paper are from Echo Park; chipboard from teresa Collins, Crate paper, Tim Holtz Grungeboard

Unfortunately it is not the best quality photo.

I apologize for that!

I originally took a very quick photo of finished 
with my Ipad earlier this week, 
my project was on my craft table.
Well, then an accident happened, 
where a part of my ceiling in my craft room
fell down, and guess where it
fell down?
Yeppers--right onto of my craft table!!

The part of the ceiling was connected to 
the access part for the pipes--
Please don't ask why, this is our first home, 
and while it is beautiful, and lovely, 
it need some fixing up, and hen some.
The house inspector, when we looking to buy, told
us that it really needed some love.
The house looks better than when we first bought it, 
but still needs work.
I am just thankful that my daughter was not in the area, 
as she was a few moments before.
Very thankful!
But my project was ruined, and 
I did not have time to create a new one.

So, still cleaning the big mess. ugh!

Hope to see your creations--
it would be great if you can join us!

Be safe! Get crafty!

Super Scraps Saturday, with my sidekick!

Happy Saturday, folks!

May the day be bright and happy for you all!

Today sees a new challenge over on the 

HIMCR #203 - Super Scraps Saturday


Break out those scraps!

Our sponsor this week is the ever fun

The giveaway is a $12 gift certificate to their store.

For my image, I had an idea of what
I wanted to make, to do.
My daughter is very much into ballet, 
and I wanted something for her room.
I saw this image, and knew it was perfect!


It doesn't always come out as one has planned, 
especially when I have a sidekick who is 
choosing colors, ribbons, flowers...
Well, it may not have turned out the 
way I had envisioned, 
but it was fun crafting with my daughter.

I colored the ballet slippers with my Prismacolors, 
and delicately used gold Stickles for some of the trim
(sorry you can't see it.)
The ribbon (chosen by April) is from
my stash--rose blush with gold trim.
The flowers are from Dollarama (roses)
and Recollections .
The gold hearts are from 
Maggie Holmes 'Open Book' collection.
The pink and white hearts were punched 
out from handmade paper, the same
paper that the image is backed onto.
The roses are dabbled with red ink
from Dylusions Ink spray.
(April did that also-she's quite crafty!)
Lots of Glue Dots were used!! 
So, that is it for me for now.

Hope you can get crafty!
See you soon!
Be safe. Get crafty!
