Time for another challenge over at My Craft Spot, the theme this week is Patriotic. Just in time to make some fun things for the 4th of July! For my project I made a star shaped box from SVG Cuts. The cute tag was made with the Tiny Tags metal dies and stamped with the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set. I tied it all on with Denim twine.

Wow I can't believe it is almost July!! Where did the time go? I remember when I was a kid summer lasted a lot longer. I have so much going on this summer before I know it it will be over:(
For my project today I used two different files from the Silhouette Store, the no glue gable box by LW and the cute little Sam by Pebbles in my Pocket. The tag was made with the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and stamped with the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set. I tied it on with Scarlet Red crinkle ribbon and Twine, all these products are from My Craft Spot.
I am entering this at Cardz TV

Today is this little cuties birthday, he is turning 4. Isn't he just adorable?! He is a bit of a wild man (He would wear the Energizer bunny out!) but so sweet and loving. He has such an imagination and is so creative. He has the best laugh it is contagious and makes you laugh along.
I absolutely adore this kid!
Happy birthday Zach wish I could be with you today, but I will see you in a couple of days!
This was taken last year when he just turned 3. He looks so grown up to me.

I am in love with this new cut file called Banana Boat Girl from SVG Cutting Files, soooooo cute! It be in the store on friday so make sure to hop on over and pick it up, you will love it!
She went together so quick and easy even with the inking! I put her on one layer of foam tape and the front wave on one layer of foam tape. The wave is from the Palm Tree and Waves Tube I just got rid of the score lines and sized them to the size I needed. The sun and sentiment are stickers.

This weeks challenge over at My Craft Spot is to make something with a fancy edge. For my card I used the new Fancy Edges 2 metal dies. I cut out all the zig zags and glued them to the red paper. I then cut two frames and glued one down flat and then put the second one on with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from the Happily Ever After stamp set. The flower was made with the Flowers Rolled - Roses metal dies.

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a fun summer so far! It's time for a new monthly challenge over at SVG Cutting Files, the theme this month is to use only 3 colors plus your base color. So for my card I used one of the super cute new cut files called Key Board Love. How cute is that?! For my colors I used white, grey, black and pink.
The tag was made with the tiny tags metal dies and stamped with tiny tags 2 stamp set and tied on with Blossom twine. All of these products are from My Craft Spot.
Just a hint, when I cut the tiny tags, I will do all the tags at once so I have some on hand when I'm in a hurry.
So make sure to join us for this fun challenge!

I've never done this before, but I am entering this in a photo contest. We will see what happens. I am such a novice photographer...still learning what all the settings are let alone how to take a great shot. Oh well you never learn unless you try.
This picture just happened, they all laid down on the walkway to look at the big fish. I just said boys and this is what I got. I just loved how they were all lined up like that and that it just happened.
This picture was fun to see his expression as he was learning to swim and still a little nervous.

Day 4 of the new releases, I can hardly believe it! This card was made with the new Word Quotes Metal Dies. I am so in love with these new dies!! They are so versatile and soooooo easy to use! I made two different cards with them to give a better idea how to use them.
For this first card I cut the yellow with the background die and then cut the white with the top die and glued them together so easy. The string is Yellow Jute String also from My Craft Spot.
For the second card I just centered the top metal die in the center of my white paper and cut it out. I then colored the hello with markers and put the black paper behind it. I stamped it with the Jar Basics stamp set and added the Berry Red Sequins, all from My Craft Spot.

Well it has been a whirlwind of excitement the last few days, lots of company here for the big day! Yes it happened my BABY just graduated high school...not sure how I feel yet. Happy for her and her accomplishments and the beautiful young woman she has become but sad for me...I know it is selfish to want to hold onto her and have her here, I am just going to miss her so much. I know she won't be to far away but it won't be the same.
I am so proud of you little one and love you beyond words!
