Just Sharin some pics of my sons.....homecoming dance

Luke 16 Bailee Rose who HAD to get in on the pictures.....6 and priceless!

This Weekend was Homecoming Weekend here in St.Francis Kansas. My second son Luke and my youngest son Blaine attended the Homecoming dance tonight. I thought they looked rather handsome, so i had to share some pics with you. My favorite one is of Bailee sneaking in behind them and peeking in behind them. We went shopping at the thrift store down town and got them their suit jackets and dress shirts and blaines tie. Pretty good deals...paid like 12 bucks for all of it!!!

Dogs and Roosters!

I just finished with this order for my dear friend and customer Melinda! Thank you Melinda for keeping me busy! I love it!
I was asked to make up an album in the memory of her dog Jonah , whom she lost a few months back! So I had a hard time finding any dog paper that seemed to fit MY vision! So i just used Bazzill card stock in color combination with the stickers i had found. I also bought some cute stamps to go with. I think it turned out cute! I hope Melinda will love it.

She also wanted a kitchen tin for recipes and i had gotten this paper from A Cherry on Top, my favorite place to shop! And i HAD to use it. Melinda and I have Matching Roosters I made us a few months back, that i posted on this very blog. SO I thought it would be cute to make a matching rooster from wood. So i drew it up from one of the roosters in the paper and cute it out (it horrifies my hubby that i use power kinda a clutz so he lives in fear when he hears them start up! lol) But i got the rooster cut out and i still have ALL my fingers and got busy painting! I think it turned out pretty cute and i KNOW melinda will be very pleased with it! SURPRISE Melinda!!! (she didnt know i was making it!);)

Four Card Box Sets!

I have made up these 4 boxed sets of cards! It was so so much fun to repaper them and to do up the fronts and make the matching cards and envelopes for each box! I colored the images on each box with colored pencils and OMS. Added a bit of lace and flowers and buttons and stickles and even a bit of fun flock on the dogs tuffs! All cards match the front of each box. The cards are 4x5 in size and i had to make the envelopes! Three of them are spoken for as of right now...but the tilda with the bird cage is still available if you are interested let me know! Thanks for stopping by! You can click on the images to enlarge them!
