MPS 8th Day of Christmas-Color Challenge

Good Morning everyone. 
I don't know how the weather is where you are at but here it has rained for 5 days straight now!  We never get this much water, we live in a desert.  But we are all grateful for it, we really needed it.  I hope things are all going well for everyone. 
I love the holidays, we are busy here making a bunch of treats for our friends and neighbors and my girls love to help out.   Well, in all the bustling around that I did yesterday I still had time to put together this quick card for the challenge over on My Pink Stamper. It is for the 8th day of Christmas and it was a color challenge, make something using blue, green and brown.  When I think of those colors I think of a little boy. So I made a card that you could use for a birthday or just about any celebration. 

I cut the frog from the PDDU cart at 3" on real dial size.  The blue paper is heat embossed using the "On the Spot" stamp from Stampin' Up and some clear embossing powder.  The ribbon is from Mrs. grossman's. The "hoppy for you" stamp was also from Stampin' Up.  I liked the cute little frog, it looks like he is jumping for joy.  Hope you like it.

6th day of Christmas Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone,   I have had a pretty good day and hope you have too!

I just finished a Christmas card for the 6th day of Christmas challenge over on the My Pink Stamper blog.
I used the PDDU cart for the gingerbread man, cut at 3" with the real dial size button.  I rifled through all my other stuff to finish the card with some patterned paper that went perfectly with the gingerbread and the ribbon is just from my stash.  And I finished it off with stickles.  Pretty cute!

I have a pretty big week ahead.  I need to get my house ready for company that will be visiting for Christmas (including 5 year old triplet boys), I am baking some goodies for my visiting teaching ladies, wrapping and sending some gifts to family, and finishing some projects for christmas presents.  Thankfully school is out and I will have my 12 year old daughter to help me out! 

Wish me luck and hopefully I will be able to find a little bit of time to post some more during all of my chaos.
See you soon!

Color Challenge from My Pink Stamper

High everyone. 
Okay, I had every intention of putting up this post days ago, but with my 12 year old's play at school, my 5 year old's kindergarten Christmas program and my 5 month old, time really gets away from you. 

I put this stocking card on My Pink Stamper's color challenge for her 2nd day of Christmas that she is doing over on her blog.  I really liked the colors.  The challenge was to make a project using 2 shades of pink and 2 shades of blue with black.  I ended up doing 2 of them, because the picture didn't show the different shades very good.  

I used the Doodlecharms cart for the stocking, and stickles for the glitter.  The snowflake came from the It's Cold Outside cart with stickles on the inside of the snowflake.  Hope you like them. It was a lot of fun using different colors for Christmas.
I have a lot to post,  so now that school is out I will have more time to get some things done.

Just a quick minute

Hey I've got a quick minute to post up some more from the wedding album. 
Hope you like them.  You can't tell by the picture but some of the paper is glitter paper, and the colors really do pop against each other, they are really bright.

I used the Stone Script Font cart for the titles.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

The Wedding Album

Hi everyone, I know it's been a while.  I have just been so busy and it is not stopping either with this time of year. 

Today we had a tryout for our u12 girls soccer team this morning. That lasted 2 hours, we went home got a bite to eat for lunch then drove over to St. George for our daughter's indoor soccer game. We are now home for the night to rest and relax; all except for Ted.  He had to hurry and change and load up the truck for a gig he has to get to tonight. 

I am currently working on something for a christmas present and I will post the pics when they are done but I won't post until I have given the gift.  Until then I will try and post some pics of pages from a wedding album I made for someone.  I really liked the end result of the album and I'm pretty sure the bride did too. I just wish I could have finished it and given it to her sooner than I did.  (Sorry it took so long Kaylee.)

The pictures don't show up very good sorry, but the colors are actually really bright.  The wedding colors were Bright Pink, Bright Green, Black, White, and Blush Pink.
I added a little sparkle of silver here and there, and of course glitter. I used some glitter paper.  I used some spamps from My Cute Stamps for the background paper, the swirls and flowers were with the cricut.  I think it was the Home Decor Cart.
I wish I could say that it was all me, but I get a lot of inspiration from other people, out of catalogs, on the net, so many places.  I can't remember where the inspiration came for all of the pages in the album but if you see one and recognize that it is yours or someone you know then thank you for your talent.  I just get the layout ideas and put my own spin on them with different colors and embellishments. 
I hope you all like these pages. I will try to post some up each day to show you the whole album.

Thank you for stopping by, taking a peek, and leaving a comment or two!
