Happy Christmas Eve Eve

Eeeks. I love Christmas. LOVE it.
This tag filled me with much Joy and happiness creating it.

 I just love making these tags every month, and next year my goal is to try and use most of them on a layout as well. Double duty!
I pray your Christmas or Holiday celebrations are filled magic, joy, and wonder, and an abundance of LOVE. Merry Christmas.

It's Here, its here, its HEREEEE!!!!

So, um yes.
I got mail today.
Glorious. HAPPY. Coloring. Mail!!!!
I was so excited to get this in print, that I took a pretty crummy photo.
I kid you not, this coloring book is at least a 1/2" thick.

I love that on the backside of the pages, there is a space that you can write who colored it, the date, and what type of medium you used to color it with.

 Geeeeked out. You see that? ^^^ Swoon.

And Kim was very generous with her Thank you page as well. She is a truly a wonderful lady, and is all about trying to help people. Check out her wonderful facebook group, Get Coloring, Get Happy, With Kim & Carling.

Thank you SO much Kim, I'm so happy I "met" you.

You can see what is included in the book here on youtube.
And if you wish to purchase, the book is here on Amazon.

And check out Lemur (Liam) he was happy with Mimi looking at the book.

Panic! at the Disco

My daughter took me to see Panic! at the Disco for my birthday present this past June. BEST. TIME. EVER!!!

I documented that trip and concert in this gorgeous mixable tag album from Clear Scraps.
 There are 5 pages, 3 acrylic and 2 chipboard.

On the acrylic pages I adhered my pattern paper to the backside, and using a 6" chevron stencil throughout to create more unity.

Did I mention my daughter is the greatest? hehe
Thanks Katelyn!! :)

Sweet heart

Happy November!!

 I still create and scrapbook, I just am SO lax about updating this blog.
I think I need to get a planner and use it to include updating here, as I love looking back on the posts, and I know my children do too.

This is a Clear Scraps Large Deco Portrait Clipboard that I have altered.
I always find these hard to create with, because I am thinking of only the functionality of the clipboard. But really, I can display this as a frame or home decor piece.

Once I figured that out, because I like to overthink things, my mojo hit.
I stamped on the acrylic in stazon ink, then backed it with some lovely from my hip kit club kit from October, and then started building my layers.
Cute, right?
Thanks for popping in.
I will try to pop in more as well. :)

Life has gotten away with me.
So much has happened!
For my 40th birthday gift, my daughter Katelyn bought tickets for us to go see Panic! at the Disco!! The best gift everrrr!!!!!!! She even got her license and DROVE us there, which was three hours away.
Brendon Urie :)

We wore matching shirts at the concert.

I have more photos, but I think I will save them for a mini album I plan on making.

I am up on the Clear Scraps blog today with a cute layout using Clear Scraps and Faber Castell products (as well as my new July hip kit club kit)
I'll share here soon.
Have a good one.

Busy weekend

Ever have a busy weekend but not quite sure WHAT you got done?
That happens a lot here.

This weekend we watched the grandloves while Amanda started back to work again.
Its always fun having them over, but tiring for Mimi and Papa.

We pretty much lounged after they left. lol
But, dang.. it sure is fun being a grand parent. :)

Its magic!

I ADORE all things Clear Scraps. 
These mixable acrylic and chipboard albums are my favorite!
(I say that a lot, but its totally true!!!)

This mixable album comes with 5 cascading pages, 3 acrylic and 2 chipboard.
 For the acrylic pages I used the 12" diamond stencil and sponged stazon ink on there to create these lovely designs.

I actually switched this album up a bit after I made this so a friend could give it to his mom for her birthday.  I will share the newly decorated album soon. :)
its sooo not pc.. but neither is his relationship with his mama. I Love it. :D
