Paper Paradise

Sunday, February 24, 2008


I covered a box and added some goodies as one of the prizes for the crop at my church for Friday night. I love the colors! The second pix is just some SB papers rolled up. I'm really exicted about the crop! I have one challenge planned, a ribbon swap and supplies swap. There is also going to be a card class. It's going to a lot of fun! I'll make sure to take lots of pix to share! :)

Does anyone have any good ideas for snacks and if so a recipe? I'm thinking a cheese ball!! MMMM I'm so hungry right now! LOL Have a great week!

Scrapook?....Heck yeah!

My kitchen is Coco-Cola themed and she looked all over for that kind of material and couldnt find any. I think she picked out the perfect kind! thank you Sandy! You Rock Girl! :)

More Bday Cards

The first card is from my future MIL. I lovvve the HAT stamp! That is sooo cute! The second one is from my cousin and dear friend. She embossed it with the cuddle bug. Look at the detail in these cards! Aren't they sooo adorable! I love all of my bday cards and will treasure them forever! Thank you ladies!

I had a wonderful birthday. My dads girlfriend made a hummingbird cake and it was sooo good. I'll have to get the recipe and post it on here! My cousin made me a hand towel for the stove. It's adorable! I'll post it soon!

My Birthday Cards

This week I had a birthday! Now I'm pushing 30. I never thought I'd be this I'm NOT old..but you know what I mean. ;)

I received 2 beautiful cards this week! Thank you Sandy and Rebekah! I thought it is pretty amazing that both cards are soo similar! Check it out!

Birthday Card

Well I did it! Another card! Kelli you would be proud! hehe :) I love this stamp that I got for Christmas! My first time using it.(thanks angela, where did you find it?) The Happy Birthday stamp is from Michael's dollar bin. I realize now I need more stamps. :)

I really enjoy making cards. They are addicting! I will probably just end up making cards at the crop this Friday night! I hope we have a good turn out! It's going to be a lot of fun! I have a couple of fun things planned. Do you guys like making cards as well?

I love cards but I struggle at making them big time! :) I need some stamps! That would help. :)Tomorrow I'm going to pull out my $1 mike stamps and give it a shot! Wish me luck!

Chipboard Album

This is my first chipboard album and it was A LOT easier than I thought it would be! The chipboard is thin and really easy to cover! I never would have guessed it! It was so much fun making it too! I have about 4 or 5 more pieces left to make another one. I used both sides, so I have 6 pages. If you've never tried covering chipboard you should! It's fun! Give it a try sometime. You'll be glad you did! :)

Valentine Day Goodies

Here is another altered chocolate bar that I made to go inside the altered mailbox. I had to find another one small enough to fit inside the mailbox. :)

The other packages are for the girls teachers. One has a candle and hersey kisses and one has a journal, post it notes, red pens and hersey kisses. Two of them have hand santizer, hersey kisses, red pens, post it notes, and paper clips. The big one in the middle is for my dad's girlfriend. It's the altered mailbox with more hersey kisses and a album. Inside the box is the altered chocolate bar and some SB goodies. Since she loves to scrapbook too! It was a lot of fun making these gifts! I hope everyone enjoys their goodies and treats!

Check out this totally cute little card HERE that Kelli made for her husband! I'm totally scraplifting this one tonight! It's soo cute and it's bound to make you laugh out loud! Check back tomorrow for my version! LOL

Valentine Day Cards

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite Holidays! It gets more and more special to me each year because I realize life is short and you should cherish your loved ones! My birthday is close to Valentines Day so I guess that's why I love Feb. so much! :)

Here are a couple of cards that I made today. I am loving this blue! I know it's not the typical pink/red colors but it's sooo pretty! It reminds me of spring :)

New LO

I haven't been feeling like myself lately. So much going on. I've been going back and forth to the doctor so much that my head is spinning. :) They are doing all kind of tests to try and figure out why my hemoglobin and iron is low. Hopefully I'll they will find out soon and will be able to treat me so I can get my energy back! I havent had to time or engery to scrap lately and I miss it terribly! Today I didnt go to church and I took the day for myself to rest and do the things I enjoy! So I scrapped this lo and couple of other things. :) It feels so good to slow down a bit!

When my aunt sent me these family photos I almost cried b.c she reminded me of my mom. She died almost 2 years ago on mothers day. I miss her more and more each day. Take a moment a hug your loved ones today. Each day should be Valentines Day! Take Care!
