Let's Go to the Movies

Hi everyone.  I'm back and feeling better!  I was so sick for over a week but I am feeling better and have some energy again!  YAY!

So I have a project to share with you.  I finished this right before I got so sick.  My daughter has been dying to go to the movies.  So I created a gift package for her including a movie ticket.




The elephant image is from Fresh Brewed Designs and is called To the Movies.  The ticket papers are from TLC Creations.

So I guess we are headed to the movies this weekend.  She deserves it.  She took care of Momma when I was sick.

Take care.

Happy Birthday

Good Morning! Tuesday is off to a running start. 

I am here today to share with you a cute set from Chi Chi Memories. Birthday Boy from the Birthday Boy Bundle is perfect for those little boys in your life. It’s so hard for me to know what little boys are into year to year so this image is just perfect for a generic boy birthday. The entire set is just adorable and versatile.


Stop by the Chi Chi Memories blog and see some inspiration and then head over to the store to grab some of these adorable images.

Take care.

Super Sweet Saturday

Good Morning it's my favorite day!  Saturday! And today do I have something super sweet to share with you.  I made a pillow box door hanger using the adorable digital stamp: SWEET SNAIL from  Fresh Brewed Designs.


I had every intention on filling it for my photo shoot, but candy does not last long in this house.  It was eaten before my project was finished.  LOL!

The template for this pouch isn't available any longer.  It's from The Angel Company and they went out of business years ago.

Take care.

Never too many Thank You's

Good Morning.

I had an epiphany this morning.  We don't tell each other thank you enough.  I was coming out of the store this morning and a gentleman was entering.  He stepped out of the way and held the door.  I said thank you.  He looked at me like I had said something rude.  I think he was shocked because those are two words we seldom say anymore.  We need to say them more.  This man didn't have to hold the door for me.  He could have continued walking and let the door close (like so many others would have done).

So today I say, thank you.  Thank you for taking time to read my blog, follow my blog, be my friend and just share a part of your day with me.  Thank you.

For today's card, I used an image from Squigglefly and a sentiment from TLC Creations.


I hope you have a great day.  Take care.
