Great Color Combo

I saw a really cute card on the front of a card magazine and loved the color combo that was used. It is probably not two colors I would have put together on my own, but they work great together.

So here is the card I made from the inspiration. I used Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler & Black. 
Have a great day!! Shelley

Craft Day!

Hi! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was so so. I got to go see my son, but we had some MORE car problems while there and we live two hours away. Car troubles are never good, but even worse away from home on a Sunday when no garages are open. But we made it home safely, the car problem is left to deal with this week. It could be time for a new vehicle, not what we really want or need right now.
When we got home I had a few hours to work on some crafts. I am having a craft/yard sale in May before Mother's Day to offer some cute Mother's Day gifts. I have lots of sample tiles Mike's parents gave me that they found at the flea market. Most are just 2x2 squares, but there was some cool corner samples that I used to makes these cute recipe holders.

Here is the back view...

I just hot glued a clothes pin to hold the recipe. I liked them so much I have to keep one for myself!
I'm entering over at Make it Monday - as always anything goes

Have a great day! Shelley

Criss Cross Card

I'm so glad it is Friday!! I thought the week had went pretty fast until Thursday, boy was that a long day! I am so ready for the weekend. I am going to visit my son for his birthday. He turned 21 this past week.

I made this criss cross card that I found on Splitcoaststampers. I was going to make them for my Mom & Mike's mom for Mother's Day, but I left it laying on my table and Mike's mom seen it while she was over helping me with my wedding invitations. So I will have to come up with something different for hers.

I love the new Summer Smooches DSP from Stampin Up! It is so bright & cheerful! You can purchase it this month online!

Have a great weekend ~ Shelley

My baby turns 21!

My "baby" boy Larz is turning 21 today!
I can't believe how time flies!!

Every year I write him a poem to embarrass him, lol. I use to publish it in the newspaper but now I post it on his Facebook. More of his friends see it there!!

My sweet little boy, where did he go??
Oh how I wish it wasn’t so!
21 years old - the legal age to drink.
Being my angel boy, of course you won’t - Ithink??
Oh how I miss days gone by,
And it makes me sigh...
Watching Barney & Goose Bumps over & over!
Being the neighborhood chauffeur.
Hours of shopping for shoes,
Oh now, I’m getting the blues!
And let’s not forget the trips to the hospital,
For everything from road burn and ankle sprains,
Oh my, you entertained!
And the time you had to have your piercing surgical removed!
How about dressing in drag,
I try not be one of those mother’s that brag!
Oh but, how you were abused.
Punched in the mouth & forehead,
I’m sure there were times you bled!
Let’s go back in time,
Like to when you were five!
Never was there a day that I didn’t cherish our time together,
My little Larzy you will be forever!

Happy Birthday Larzy!

Scrap it with a Song - It's a Beautiful Day

Scrap it with a Song is celebrating Spring this month!  Our song for this week is It's a Beautiful Day by U2. We have definitely been having some beautiful days to enjoy here in West Virginia.  This past Easter weekend was gorgeous! I was so happy to be able to spend it with my family.

This is Madison, my beautiful great niece. Girls are few and far between in my family. Before Madison, who will be 5 this summer, the last girl born in my family was in 1987! 

This is three of my handsome nephews, Rusty, Sammy & DJ. I don't usually get to see them all at one time, I was surprised looking at this photo how much they all look alike. Growing up Rusty looked nothing like his brothers. His hair was so blonde it looked white in the summer.

I used My Digital Studio to make my pages with the sketch at  Let's Get Sketchy.

Hope you join us this month at Scrap it with a Song, just use lyrics from the song to inspire your page and link it up to our challenge blog. Apron Strings is our sponsor this month. They have some terrific scrapbook supplies!

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We had beautiful weather, even though it was a little chilly there was no rain!! The kids enjoyed hunting their Easter eggs in the sunshine!

This is a card I made for my upline, Kathy Hamrick's,
 birthday last week. Happy Birthday Kathy!

I love the Everyday Enchantment paper & am so excited that I have an unopened pack!! I am planning on using it for my wedding in August, which reminds me that I really need to get busy making some things. This year's In-colors are still my favorite, I use them all the time.

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Tea Bag Holder

Hi! Hope you all are enjoying your week so far.  I can't wait til the weekend, I am going to spend Easter with my family!!

I made these cute little tea bag holders last weekend. I just love them, on the other side is a 3x3 card. I still need to make some cookies to fill in the middle. I found the instructions on Chiaki Haverstick's blog. She has so many great projects.

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Mojo Monday

Wow, it is April already! Where is the time going? My wedding is in August, last night I started panicking thinking I should be further along with the plans by now. I hope April goes a little slower for me. Especially since my "baby" boy will be turning 21! That is a legal adult! He should only be 5 years old!! So I made him a birthday card fitting for a 5 year old. lol I may make him an adult on later on.

These gnomes are just so adorable!
  I used the sketch at Mojo Monday.

Have a great evening ~ Shelley
