Our newest addition to the family (3rd grandson) was born last weekend.
Conveniently, my Close To My Heart order arrived a couple of days ago.

Everything used on this double layout was included in the

In these phots you see our daughter, Keri, holding her newest son, Erik

I still need to do some journaling on the white card with the heart.

Thank you for stopping by today to see what I'm up to.

Enjoy your weekend.

Craftaholics R Us Ch# 7 Halloween Tags for Guys

Craftaholics R Us 

Ch# 7 Halloween Tags for Guys


My Design Team Project


Silhouette Cameo for tag die cut & Frankie face die cut
Image adhered with foam tape

For the pattern paper strips, I used my scraps cutting them at 1" wide.
I adhered them to the tag white base and cut off the excess around the tag base.
I left enough white for the stamped sentiment.

Jaded Blossom, Pick Your Poison stamp set
Tulle from Amazon several years ago. I don't think it will run out for several more years. LOL

CTMH Flower Market Layout with Sugar Skull

My Halloween Layout below was inspired by this official Close To My Heart video:






The Cloud strip was actually a Zip Strip at the top of one of the 12x12 papers that most people trim off and toss. What?! Don't throw those away! Use them!

I cut out 2 of the Sugar Skulls with a different color combination. The other I plan on using on a card. Some of the elements added to this page were the cut outs from parts of the skulls.

Gold gems added to flower centers
A place for a 4x6 photo to be added after I get some costume pictures of our grandkids from Halloween.


For a skull, it sure is pretty.


Love these flowers and leaves.

The Merry Christmas Challenge - Use a CAT or DOG (part 2)


Hi, everyone!
Yesterday was the beginning of our new challenge over at The Merry Christmas Challenge and the theme is to use a CAT or DOG. I posted this card as my project using a cat on the mantel. But I've been told that it is in fact not a cat, but a mouse. hahahahahaha  Well, looks like a cat to me! hahahaha

So I decided to make a card with a DOG for the challenge today. I'm pretty sure this is actually a dog. (Hey, it's all good.)
