Field Trip

So, yesterday I figured that we needed a change of pace . . . some fun family time!! So we decided to take a short trip over to the MK Nature Center in Boise!! It was so much fun! The girls loved looking at the fish and taking a walk in the Idaho sun!! It was a beautiful day! The first picture is the girls on the trail!
Em helping her little sis see the waterfall . . . it was so cute watching them work together!
Beautiful big sister . . . so proud of herself!!
The girls and the big fish tank! They loved looking at the fish. I highly recommend this field trip to anyone in the area . . . especially if you have kiddos!! The big plus . .. it's TOTALLY FREE!!

Craft Warehouse Assignment #2 . . .

Okay . . . whew . . . I finally finished!! We had to create a largeDaisy Bucket banner from some Daisy Bucket paper, rub-ons, stamps, and cardstock. We also had to use our supply of Thickers! I love the paper, but I had a lot of trouble figuring out where to even start. My daughter saw the green monster and thought that he looked kind of like Mike from Monsters, Inc. My next step was to check out quotes from the Monsters, Inc. movie. I found one that talked about plaque and brushing teeth. I changed the wording and the above banner was created! It's bright and colorful and I know that a house full of boys would LOVE it!!

We also had to use the Dasiy Bucket papers and stamps to create a card! Lucky, for me this came together quite quickly!! I love that little monster . . . I added stickles to the wings for some SPARKLE!!

Our last part of the assignment was to create a layout from the AWESOME KI Friendship line! We had to use a white piece of the Glitter Lace cardstock, 4 patterned papers, rub-ons, and the Epoxy Alphabet Stickers! I loved creating this layout!! I really think that if I could have used my sewing machine to stitch around the layout it would have added a lot more texture, but my sewing machine is broken! The paint was fun to use though!!

Thanks for looking and check out the rest of the Design Team's work on the Craft Warehouse site!

Stay tuned for some projects that I had to complete for the Croppin' Paradise Design Team!!
Hope you are having a terrific Friday!

Craft Warehous update . . .

So I was able to send in my first project and I had a lot of fun with it!! On Wednesday, I received my second package which included our fun 2nd project and the rest of the stuff from our Welcome Package!! They are sooo good to their Design Team!! I got a brand new Crop-a-dile, a new Corner Chomper, 4 different Tim Holtz Distressing Inks, a blender, some Glossy Accents, and some more flowers!! It's so cool!! I bought a whole new bin to hold the great stuff and I'm so glad that I did . . . it just keeps getting more and more cool stuff added to it!! I'm trying to nail down my idea for our next project, but I hope to have it done and sent off before I leave for SanDiego on June 30th!

Until then here's a pic of the girls that my sista took:

Whew . . . it's been a busy month so far . . .

and it's only been 4 days!! I've been doing some cards for a fundraiser that I'm doing for a conference that I'm attending at the end of this month. Whew . . . I don't think I've made so many cards in my whole life . . .but it's been a lot of fun!

This is a layout that I did using my products from the Croppin' Paradise store!! I LOVE the Pink Paislee products!! They are AWESOME!! I mean look at that giant flower!! It's so cool!!
This beauty is a gift that I created for one of the room mothers that volunteered in my class this year! She loved it!!
I also made one for another room mother!! It turned out quite nicely as well! It was so fun!! I just used the front side of a 9 x 12 canvas and some papers. The frames are actually picture frames that I took the back off and adhered to the layout! So easy and inexpensive, too!
