Casual Bracelet

I saw this cool bracelet at Mich L. in L.A. and she also gives a tutorial on how to make it. It was sooo easy! Here are pictures of the one I made. Jason does not like it:( But I think it is cool. It is the kind of bracelet you would wear with jeans not your LBD;)

I will be hooking this post up with A Crafty Soiree.

Happy Thanksgiving and Let It Snow


Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you all will have a good time with your families!!

It is also time for another challenge at Stamp-n-Doodle. We took a break last week but we are back:) Remember you don't have to use a Stamp-n-Doodle image but if you do you get two entries into the challenge. This time it was a theme challenge. The theme was Christmas and to use the colors white, red or green and another color, but that other color could not be red or green. Get it? I am using the Let It Snow image.

This picture shows the Let It Snow sentiment.
I am also using Scrapmaster Paradise Color Combo #75.
I am also using The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge # 94.

All together:
Stamp-n-Doodle: Christmas Theme and White, Red or Green, and another color but not red or green.
Pile It On: Winter Theme
Scrapmaster's Paradise: Color Challenge, Whispering White, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise
The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge: Sketch

Thanks for looking and have a fantastic holiday!!

Leaf Wreath

Here is the leaf wreath Adela and I made together. I let her do the Mod Podge and I would place the leaves. This was a good plan because it took a while for the leaves to take their hold. I was constantly making sure the leaves would stick. Adela used so much Mod Podge I thought it was going to take a year to dry! Even when I took the picture as it was hanging it wasn't completely dried. On the lift hand side you can kind of see a dab of it. It took almost a whole day to dry enough for me to hang it!

Adela is so proud of the wreath. Shows every one who comes to the house. I also felt like Martha Stewart when I was hanging it;)

Today is like a Friday for me. The kids have no school tomorrow and I can sleep in!! Though I have to clean my crafting area. We are having our Thanksgiving breakfast down in the basement and we use the table I use for crafting. But since we are not going anywhere until Friday for Thanksgiving ...we can stay in our jammies all day on Thursday!! Yippie Skippie!!

A Chilly Reindeer

Alison of Stretch 'N Bubbles gave another image free to the people who used her last image last week. I was one of them:) It is the cutie reindeer with a scarf image. Come on over to Stretch 'N Bubbles and play a long. Your next week image will be free if you play with this weeks image.

I also used Meljen's Design for the sentiment.
I used Scrapmaster's Paradise DT call sketch. I am thinking about applying for a DT position with SP & Company.

Thanksgiving is almost here! Sleepin' time!!Photobucket

Snowman Card

Hey you all!

Well, since I used last weeks free image from Stretch 'N Bubbles, I was able to get this weeks image free!! Alison only gives away freebie images once a month...unless you use that month's free image and I did:) Yippee for me!! I knew exactly what paper I wanted to use with the image.

I also used Get Sketchy's current sketch.
I am also using this for Scrappy Gifts Friday's challenge for the online weekend crop challenge over at Maryanne's Scrappy Gifts Blogfrog community. Friday's challenge was to use ribbon.

I hope everybody has a good week and thanks for looking:)
