I'm The Moxie Fabber of the Week!!

I am so excited!! Cath Edvalson who writes the wonderful Moxie Fab World blog, asked to feature ME as the Moxie Fabber of the Week!! THIS is my week! Please check it out, and let me know what you think! Please leave a comment too!! This is really an honor, and I'm THRILLED!!

Lots of Scrapping!

I was very CREATIVE this weekend! It was wonderful! An online crop at Coordinates Collections really inspired me! Here are just a few of the things that I created!

I created this page for a white space/negative space challenge. I love white space! I used Crate Paper Snow Day, some Pink Paislee cushy alphas, and some ribbons. I love the trio of ribbon next to the photo! Isn't that a gorgeous photo? It was a sunrise, and I love a pink sky!

This page was created for an orange and turquoise challenge. I love that color combination! These are some fun photos from our Disney vacation. I used a Hambly transparency (yes, it got sewed on crooked!), some Jillibean Soup, American Crafts, and Prima. I love the way this turned out. Fun vacation layout!

This layout features just one manufacturer. I love Sassafras Indie Girl, and it just seemed to work with these photos of the girls and their new fleece blankets. They're so CUTE!

This card was created for a frills and bling challenge. My mom's birthday is coming up, and she'll love a pretty feminine card! I used Cosmo Cricket DeLovely, some tulle, rhinestones, and a Prima. The sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp, and I cut it with one of my circle scallop Nestabilities. I like it!

I hope you had a great weekend! There's talk of a blizzard for Illinois. I hope they're wrong! I don't like the word blizzard unless I'm going to Dairy Queen! :) Thanks for stopping by!

I couldn't wait to dig in and use my Memorable Seasons kit! I used an awesome sketch by Liz at The Scrappiest! She's celebrating all week long because she has posted 100 sketches! Isn't that amazing? This is my take on sketch #101. I really loved using the kit! What fun! This is my mom! I love her! She's a great mom and grandma! I think this page is so pretty, and I love it! You can click on the layout to see it larger. I love the little heart detail that I created. I used the itty bitty stamp by Unity that was included in the kit. So cute! Love Unity Stamps! The photo of this layout is not the best, because it's been cloudy, foggy, and gloomy here for days now! I just wish the sun would come out! Oh well!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Bracelet Buddies

I created this page using a January 2011 PageMaps sketch by Becky Fleck. I love PageMaps! I used Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934! Oh, how I love this collection! I won the collection from the fantastic SRM Stickers! Thank you so much!! I just love the way this layout turned out! The flowers were made using my Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die by Sizzix. This is one of my most favorite layouts EVER!!

I hope you're having a great day. Enjoy your weekend! It's cold here today! Right now, it's -5 degrees! Brrr!! Thanks for stopping by!

Old Navy Mannequins

I created this layout for a sparkle challenge at the Whimsical Winter Crop taking place at Inspired to Scrap!! Check it out for some fun challenges!! I also used the January / February kit that I bought in the online store! It's fabulous, and I love it!! I also created this layout for the January Blog Hop Challenge at Coordinates Collections! The challenge is to use circles! I love round elements on my pages! :)

Here's a close up of some rhinestones, sewing, and distressing!

I hope you're having an awesome weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Dart Guns!

I just love these three! They're so crazy! They picked up these dart guns at Menard's, and since then, you never know when they will be a sneak attack or a battle! They posed for a photo, and it cracks me up that it has a Charlie's Angels feel to it! This layout is pretty much Jillibean Soup with LOTS of sewing on it! I also added some Prima Sprites and a Jenni Bowlin ticket. That stamping in the upper left corner is with a Studio Calico stamp. The layout is based on a sketch that is posted for the sketch event at Scrap-Friendzy.

I hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Be You

I rarely create two page layouts, and this is my second one in the last few weeks! I used the January / February "Happy Together" kit that I bought at Inspired to Scrap.

I let a Unity Stamp inspire me with the title! "Be Unique. Be Unforgettable. Be YOU." Love it!

My girls LOVE taking silly self-portraits! I love when they take silly self-portraits! It's a wonderful surprise to see them all when I upload photos from my camera! I stamped words up the side of the three photos! They're from a PaperTrey Ink stamp set. Love it! Both of these layouts are based on sketches that are posted at the sketch event at Scrap-Friendzy.

I hope you're having a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

LWE Flute

We're having another Sketch-A-Thon at Scrap-Friendzy, and this is my layout based on the first sketch that was posted!! I used all Jillibean Soup, and I love the way this turned out! I just love those corrugated letters! This is Emily in her flute section sweatshirt! She looks wonderful!

We're back to the routine tomorrow. Jessica heads back to school. Emily has another whole week off. Hard to believe the holidays are over! I hope you enjoyed it all! Thanks for stopping by!
