Kids mini album.

When I say mini, this is a small, flat cute little mini for just a few pics and some journalling, more of a "brag" style book than a chunky fat mini...

And also since it's my birthday...check out what the stampgoddess showed me how to make:

I did use crepe paper instead of flowers but I love it, I hope the recipient does as well!

Cutest Sym Card

I'm gonna take some more pics when I get back to work, but I love how this turned out, it may be the cutest Sympathy Card ever...

May Pizza Box Swap at LSH

Here's the box I made for my Swap partner at LSH! I had so much fun making and decorating the box. I got an email from her, she loved the papers I sent her as well as the box. YAY!

Here's some still photos I took:

So last week my new semester at school (read this as my online class that I take) started and I forgot all about it because of my exciting week at the clinic. I got to work as an actual technician for two days because people called in sick so that was awesome. Saturday was it's normal chaotic self and I also got to help perform chest compressions in an ACTUAL EMERGENCY situation. (no, the pet did not make it) It was a really exciting and rough week and I wish I could share the gorey details, but alas I don't think it would make for good blogging (certainly not if you were eating anyway, LOL) I have gotten in some awesome stuff and have been working on cleaning my craft space. I REALLY hope to get the table cleared off enough today and then I am going to be filming some haul and giveaway vids. (You do NOT want to miss the giveaway vid!)

My first Mini Swap at LSH

So I've been having a great time over at LSH. It's a very inspiring place (see badge to the right). And I completed my first mini to swap over there. I hope she likes it. I was dying to mail hers before I got my mini in the mail. LOL... I'm going to take photos when the sun comes out today. (sorry the lighting is horrible it was 5am when I filmed the video)

May Flowers.

So I really really liked the flower I made for my Mama. I make a lot of flowers for myself as well as my scrappy friends. My awesome friend Sudie sent a shoutout on FB for anyone wanting to be in a flower swap. I don't have the deets yet, but I got started yesterday.

These are not pink, they are ivory, but for some reason my phone picked them up as pink...oh well I'll take better photos when I get them all done...

I had a thank you card to make, and if you haven't guessed yet, by the time you see the next two photos you'll know I added a punch to my collection over NSD (LOL).

I FINALLY broke down an purchased the Fiskars scallopped sentiment punch. I've been lusting after it forever, I don't know why I didn't buy it before, but I'm so happy I've been using it quite a bit! (You know, like you always think you're going to do when you purchase a punch you think is cool.)

 I also needed a sympathy card. I whipped this one out and really I LOVE how it turned out. I used the Basic Grey Hello Lucious line on my Maya Road mini a while back and have plenty of it left for cardmaking. (Maybe now I can make up some cards to have at the ready....hmmm I MAY be too much of a procrastinator for that LOL!)

I hope you all have a lovely scrappy day!

Mother's Day

So for this Mother's Day I decided to make my Mom a corsage. I remember getting all excited when I was little because on Mother's Day I always got to wear a red corsage to church just like my Mama used to. It always made me feel so special. Now my mom is in the white flower category and I wanted to give her something I made myself. I did add a pin back rather than sending her a fancy corsage pin (I wasn't able to stick the corsage to my own shirt that way LOL.) I have some other things to share which I'll be posting very soon, we finally have some sunshine here in Memphis (btw I don't live near the flooding areas but am praying for those who do.)
