Thankful for you, and Bed and Breakfast

We enjoyed a beautiful weekend getaway to see the fall leaves.  Here are two pages from that weekend.

Silly Boy

I used a piece of Jillibean Soup paper for this simple page of my grandson, Chandler, discovering his tongue and all the funny sounds he can make with it.

Watching football with dad

My daughter sent me this picture that was taken with her camera phone so it wasn't the best quality, but the picture was so doggone cute, that I knew I wanted to preserve it.  Afterall, I can see Chandler watching football with his dad when he is six feet tall, and I can show him that it all started when he was 4 months old!  I used the Basic Grey "Clippings" line of paper, and this sheet only needed a few embellishments and it was done!

Loving these sketches!

Falling for Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Falling for Halloween Blog Hop". You should have arrived from Donna's blog  If not, you will want to go to Maria's blog so that you start from the beginning, and don't miss any of the beautiful fall and halloween crafts.

I made this cute little flat back treat box for this blog hop, and then I sent it to my sweet partner, Ronnie aka BeachBum, for a fall swap over on the cricut circle message boards.  She opened her box this past Wednesday so it's okay for me to share it now.  LOL 
I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the pumpkins, and Peachy Keen stamps for their faces.  A little twine on their stems, and they were finished!  I used the same patterned paper to make this treat bag.  You can't tell in the picture, but it is kind of like saddle bags as there is another pocket on the reverse side that will hold treats.  
Together, they made a nice set.  The bag is holding M&M's and the box has 4 Smarties in it!

Credit where credit is due...I found the patterns for these two pieces at these sites

This week's sketch at Nuts About Sketches

My take on the sketch

Monday, October 1, 2012


Card making is not my first love when it comes to scrapbooking.  I much prefer doing layouts, but every once in awhile, I get inspired to do a card.  Here's my latest effort.  The inside says "Just dropping by to say hi".  I saw the idea online somewhere, but can't remember where or I would give credit.  I love the peek a boo effect that the negative cut gives.
