Hoarded Supplies Anyone???

My weekend has been pretty laid back so far. Yesterday I got bangs, I surprised my mother with some very nice flowers (she was shocked and she loved them.) Totally unexpected for both of us because I was just out and about and saw them and said to myself "these would be really nice". She just went back to work last week after recovering from breast cancer surgery in July. She said she was ready to go back but it was hard, you know after being off work for such a good length of time.

Anywhoo,this page is made up mostly of hoarded items! The background ppr is Heidi Swapp, the large letters are Making Memories Jigsaw, the smaller letters are Glitz designs pink woodgrain, the rub ons are BG Hopscotch, the zig zag shapes were made using EK Zig Zag punch. Those items were never used, I've had them for a while. I've actually had the Zig Zag punch over a year from J's and never used. Well a few months ago I saw it on sale @ J's online and I bought it. Well I went through my goodies and realized I had accidentally bought another one, but not until 2 months AFTER I bought it! Then I quickly shipped it back!

I made this weeks ago but when I scanned it, it was terrible so I took a picture today and finally uploaded it. Im glad the pink showed up pink because the scan made it look pale lavander. Of course this is Farrah playing hopscotch. I used a Delta template to make the check pattern. 


Hand N Hand

I took these about 2 weeks ago and I used the "Orton-ish" filter in Picasa. I swear 1 day I will actually use my Photoshop Elements because I hear it's so cool and I love filters. Of course these are my 2 kiddies on rare occasions where they actually hold hands, Gabby is funny acting @ times though, but I know they love each other.

I used the Poppies template (Donna Downey) and misted with Tattered Angels Sheer mist in Rosy. I punched and embossed the pennants, scalloped circle and the brackets with the Seeing Spot embossing folder for Cuttlbug. The paper is Crate Paper Lil Bo Peep collection called Charlotte. I used the following punches: Marvy Pennent punch, Fiskar's Apron Lace, McGill bracket punch and Fiskar's Pretty Scallops. 

Last but not least, my new hairstyle: 


  1. Your new hairstyle is cute! Lovely LOs too, great job

  2. Love the bangs! Great job on the LOs too! :-)
