I started this LO at the last LCOM crop (THAT was in March, I think??), brought it home and finished it the week after and it has taken me THIS long to remember to photograph and upload it. YIKES!
I was lucky enough to have 2 Santa hats and my camera one day when we were vising with my SIL and DN and scored THIS photo of Little Man and his cousin. They are 19 months apart and adore each other. I just KNEW I would have to scrap it and was really happy with the results.

Supplies: Bazzill, Making Memories & Fancy Pants paper, KI Memories lace CS, Kaiser bling, Prima adhesive felt, Making Memories crocheted lace, Colorbok chipboard heart, Fancy Pants ribbon, Cosmo Cricket tiny alphas & Thickers, White Uniball gel  pen,

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Thursday!

Songs of Spring (Part 2)

Hello Blogger peeps!
It turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL weekend here and where am I?? Indoors-BLOGGING.
So this post will be short and sweet!
These are the last of my projects from the Love is in the Details reveal last weekend. The kit is DEVINE. I noticed there are less than a handful left-so if you want one, snap it up HERE!
* * * * * *
This LO of Little Man is actually not as yellow IRL, I just can`t get the colors right for some reason.

The colors are much truer on this one.

* * * * * * * * *
This LO uses the GORGEOUS Cosmo Cricket Coredinations cardstock in would grain and all I can say is OH MOMMA! WOW!
The die cut (looking paper) was made using a mixng bowl as a template, layering a slightly larger version in black (cut freehand) to add definition and lastly, I finished it off with some  punched circles cut in half and adhered.
And lastly, Idid this simple card-I left it sentiment-less (is that a word) so I could write whatever the occasion is on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by, Everyone!
 Happy Sunday!

To Love & Cherish

Happy Friday Peeps!!
I am so excited to tell you about one of Imaginisce`s newest releases, To Love & Cherish. I had SO much fun playing with this line this month. Its  a very classic black and white scheme, which works SO WELL with neutral and colorful backgrounds alike.

This is the overall kit view.

And here are a few projects I did. Cardstock courtesy of Coredinations.

A couple of simple cards. I used Vintage Coredinations as my card base.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Songs of Spring

This is another of those kits where I HATE to throw out even the smallest scrap. This one is so colorful-I just love every little detail. I peeked and there are only FOUR left if you want one, you better grab one HERE.

On this LO, I revisted my doodling roots with a SHarpie and colored in the loops with Tombow Markers.I then matted the white doodled paper on adark yellow cardstock and fussy cut on the black line. If you look closely, you will notice a bit of Smooch SPritz there too (in Cherry) which is included with the kit.

The title on this LO is fussy cut out of this tag I got from Love is in the Details.
I also doodled a border on this LO using 2 black SHarpies (1 in fine point).

After cutting out my 'Little Man' title, I was left with a frame from my die cut, so I matted it and used it on a card. LOVE the way this turned out!
That's all I have for now, I have a few more LOs and close ups to post from the reveal that I will be posting later in the week. Thanks for stopping by!

Ready or Not

Have I ever stated what a procrastinator I am?? I REALLY try not to be but it just seems to 'happen'. I make a LO and I am not 100% happy with it, so I put it within eyesight and stare at it. And stare it some more. And keep staring at it. Anyway, I digress. This LO was almost finished TWO Mondays ago for a challenge at Love is in the Details but something wasn't right. I later decided that I needed to mat my title on white CS and pop dot them for depth. Yes, it took me a week and a half to make this decision. Maybe I am a bit of a scrappy perfectionist too. ;).

Here is the result.
Supplies: CS-Kraft, Bazzill, Papers, stickers, alphas-Studio Calico
Numbers-Thickers, Pen-Black Zig, Scrap Ribbon-Creative Cafe
Buttons-unknown (from stash), Acrylic paint (black)

Be sure to peek in tomorrow for our reveal of the Songs Of Spring kit from Love is in the Details.

Thanks for checking in and have a Happy Saturday!

I have some new work to share. As far as blog posting goes, it's either feast or famine with me. I have some more new LOs to show you tomorrow and Sunday, we are having our Love is in the Details reveal-and you DO NOT wan't to miss that! BUT-on with some new work!!

Last week, I discovered that Zellers was carrying a new line of SB supplies (called Momenta, ATD), so I tried them out-LOL. I used the Flutter line as well as several packets of alphas in the same line.

Below are a couple of projects that I made. TY for looking!

World Autism Awareness Day

Hi Friends, if you are looking for the Imaginisce blog hop, please go HERE.

Today has been declared World Autism Awareness Day.
(the following post has been taken from Facebook and can be seen in it's original form HERE.)

Autism Canada is proud to join countless other autism organizations across the country and internationally in celebrating World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD). This is a day to bring awareness to the world to let people know where we are heading and acknowledge how far we have come.

Our primary WAAD initiative this year is to spread a message of inclusion and acceptance to elementary school students and staff across Canada. We know that children are our future, and our focus is not only on helping those who have autism, but giving the proper knowledge and understanding to those who don’t. Below is a link to an inspiring story written by Executive Director Laurie Mawlam that was published in The Autism File magazine. It highlights a group of six remarkable young boys from Leamington, Ontario, one of whom has autism, and their journey together. If you haven’t read it, please take a few minutes to do so and forward it on to a friend. It is sure to be an inspiration and example to all of us.

Click here to read the "rewards of Friendship" article by Laurie Mawlam

Autism Canada, member of the Leadership Committee of the Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorders Alliance (CASDA), met on behalf of the Alliance with MPs and Senators on Parliament Hill on Tuesday March 30 to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day and bring awareness to the importance of formulating a National ASD Strategy. The federal government needs to institute a plan and show leadership. Autism Spectrum Disorders are epidemic and the federal government needs to put this on their political agenda now.

Click below to view CASDA's vision, mission and members.

Join us today to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day and help spread awareness. So please read the article and ask your MPs to support Bill S-211 – An Act Respecting World Autism Awareness Day, and the newly introduced Bill C-504 – An Act Respecting the Establishment of a National Strategy for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

If we all pledge to work together, we will make a difference!

Mark, Connor and I Thank you.
