Pinwheels SOTM Blog Hop...

It seems that this year is just FLYING BY and what better way to commemorate that than with a SOTM Blog Hop featuring May's SOTM, Pinwheels!

We've all seen the popularity of this once simple little toy.  This stamp set is so CUTE and will be wonderful for all those Summer layouts and cards.

If you've come from Judy's Blog, you're blowing right along...

Here's my project using this adorable stamp set...I hope you find inspiration!

Here are some closeups...

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget....you can only get this stamp set during the month of May!

Keep on hopping along to Krista's Blog and see what she has to share.

Dream Pop Blog Hop...

Each year, CTMH comes up with a FABULOUS deal commemorating National Scrapbook Day and we celebrate ALL MONTH!!!  This year's "deal" is DREAMY (....lol)
You get all of this for only $10 when you spend $35...

If you've come from Pamela's Blog, I'm sure you're still in awe of what she had to share, but you've got some hoppin' to do so focus!

Here's the card I made...it's one of my favorite size cards and one I think I made up...it measures 4 x 5-1/2" which allows me to cut a 12x12 sheet of paper at 4" instead of messing it up with a 4-1/4" cut.

Here are some closeups...the center to this gorgeous flower is from the For Always Assortment...

And...just in case you can't tell in these photos - check out the glossy pattern on this Slate Cardstock...ALL THE CARDSTOCK has this glossy resist pattern - each color is a different pattern!
And...here's the inside...
You can start ordering this Paper Packet on May 1st.  Contact your consultant to find out more or leave me your contact information in your comment and I'll hook you up! 
Keep on hoppin' 'till you get back around to where you started.  Your next stop from here is Priscilla's Blog!!!

It Works! Wraps...my story in the making

So...about a month ago, I got wrapped for the 1st time...in a Starbucks bathroom no less...lol. 
It is changing my life in more ways than I'd ever guess!  I'm losing inches that have been STUCK to me for 10 months (had a baby) and I'm making more income than I ever have with any other direct-selling company I've sold for.
Here are my before and after pictures...this is ME...baring it all for the world to see (or at least my 169 followers...lol) so that you, too, can lose those extra inches or become a Distributor and make some extra income!

In the "after" photo I have the same pair of panties on...they just sit a little lower on my hips now :0)

The photo qualities are a little different (major differences between iPhone 5 and iPhone 3...lol) but I know you can see what I'm talking about!

I invite you to check out my website and take a look at our products!  If you have any questions, please send me an e-mail.

Chantilly Textiles March Madness WINNER...

If you recall...I decided to do a giveaway for some Chantilly Textiles in this H2H Goes Green post.
Well...I've finally slowed down enough to make sure everyone did what they were supposed to do and I have a WINNER!!!
Wendy over at Stamping Rules!!!
Congratulations, Wendy...and thanks for playing along with H2H, commenting on my H2H Goes Green post, Pinning the project on Pinterest AND following my Blog!!!

H2H Raindrops Keep Falling...

This week at Heart2Heart Challenges, it's all about Raindrops...and, I can't seem to get the song out of my head...

"...raindrops keep fallin' on my head...my eyes will soon be turnin' red..." 

Here's what I thought of when I heard the challenge...

Here are some close-ups...
I cut the cloud using CTMH's Artiste Collection and covered it in our Slate Washi Tape...

Then cut all the extra washi off...
Here's the inside...
Here's a picture tutorial of sorts with cutting measurements, etc...

Use extra scraps to pop-dot things - it gives it just enough pop without being too tall to mail

Don't forget to check out the other DT members' blogs and see what rainy-day creation they've been inspired to create!

Freshly Made SUNSHINE...

Sketch Challenges are one of my many weaknesses, which means I LOVE THEM like a girl loves chocolate! 
But....with my busy schedule - I work full time outside the home and have 4 very busy children...I don't always MAKE TIME to play along.
This weekend I set aside 20 minutes to sit down and play along with Freshly Made Sketches!  One of their requirements is that you keep it simple which is sometimes hard for me to do but I gave it a try.
Here's a look at the sketch...
Here's what I came up with...I think it needs something in the top left corner but I kept reminding myself to keep it simple so I left it...

Products used (all CTMH):
Claire Paper Packet
April SOTM - My Sunshine
Sunset Ink
Outdoor Denim Ink
3D Foam Tape
Cricut Artiste Collection
