Cee's Crafting again


Every now and then my daughter decides to craft with me.  Today was such a day.  Also because he friend's party is tomorrow.  LOL.  So her friend loves turtles and I threw her some ideas.  This is what she came up with. (Oh, yeah, she's 9 years old.)



The image is from McMahon 5 and the sentiment is TLC Creations.  We found the turtle shaped card by Google.

In the Pink at Jackson's Digital Expressions


Good Morning.  It's time for a new challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions.  This week we are asking everyone to create a Pink themed or Breast Cancer Awareness project.

We at Jackson's Digital Expressions are so blessed to have such wonderful team members on the design team.  Let me tell you what some of them are doing.

Chana along with a few other DT members will be donating $0.25 for Breast Cancer Research for every entry of our challenge this week.  And, If you enter here and at Mema's Craft, you will land a double punch against Breast Cancer. Lesia,Mema's owner and JDE DT member,  is donating $10.00 for every 40 entries in her monthly challenge. What amazing gestures!

Now for my project this week, I have to admit that it does not follow the theme.  I made my project ahead when we were still doing Anything Goes, so I apologize. 



I used Robert's Vintage Hat II for my project.  You can find it in his store, here.

We would love for you to join us with your pink projects.  Stop by the blog and see all the lovely designs the DT has made.

Take care.

Hambo Hoedown


Hello.  It's time to Hoedown with Hambo.  This week they asked us to use Chevron pattern on our cards.  Of course I had the hardest time finding this background, just because someone asked me to use it.  Anyway, that stash of digi papers came in handy.  I have no idea where it came from but it's something digi.

I used Worm Balloon stamp for my project.

Take care.

Homework Time!

Well school has been in session now for 4 weeks here in FL. I'm getting a little nervous so far with the school work. My daughter who usually gets all A's is struggling a little. It seems the level of work took a huge jump. Things she found so easy last year is tremendously hard this year. She failed her first spelling test, but so did most of the class.

OK, enough worrying.

I wanted to share a little altered memo notebook I made. The image is from Whimsie Doodles. I just love their little characters, so cute.



Ok, take care.

Anything Goes at Hambo

Hello! The weekend is coming to a close and I can't believe I haven't blogged all weekend! Yeah, I can believe it. I had a kid free weekend so I did a whole lot this weekend by myself and it felt wonderful. I love being a mom but it feels good to have a break too.

This week at Hambo is anything goes. I used a rubber stamp called Hot Chocolate for my card.
