Fairy Tale Friday Dreams Tag

Hello Everyone! I have spent the evening making up this tag for Fairytale Friday over at!
I should be making up my menu for the next 2 weeks and my grocery list as i have to go to town for my bimonthly trip for supplies. I also have to pay bills to see what i have to work with. It is stressful, so you can understand why i decided to just slack off and do my tag! I colored her all with prisma pencils and OMS and kept it all cepia tones.
Now i better quit slackin and get busy with my bills and menu/list....its not going to get done magically....even though i wish it would!
Have a great weekend everyone..!

Teddy Bo Tuesday!!

Welcome! Today is again TeddyBo Tuesday! I am so glad that Gayle puts out new images weekly! I cannot wait from week to week to see what new she has come up with! What a hoot is this Image??!! I picked this image too, because growing up my friend Jill, had a beetle bug and we used to "cruise" in it and i thought it was the funnest (is that a proper word?) car ever! (besides my friend Cindys car that was this really OLD car with a REALLY big stearing wheel and everytime you turned a corner, it would rock like a boat on the water.....thus we named it "the boat" (were so original! LOL) So here is to you Jill....remember the good ol days in the bug!?

D'arcy's Diaries First Challenge

Tomorrow marks the very first challenge at D'Arcys Diaries and we love for you all to join us. If you haven't heard of D'Arcys Diaries then go to and check out the inspiration from my team mates.

Come back again tomorrow here on my blog and check out the new images and a card I have made for the occasion!

Its a cupcake kind of day!

I made this card up for a special request, I hope that it will be well received. I dont want to get into the details of what it is for, but obviously its for a 16th Birthday, but there are other reasons behind it as well.
I used one of Krista Smiths Saturated Canary Images, Party Hardy. I colored the image with Promarkers, but i did the background with prisma pencils and OMS.  I had these papers in my scrap drawer, i am hording the bottom one as i love it so.. But this card called for me to bring it out and use it! Lots of sparkle, with my clear stardust pen by gelly roll and my stickles too. I clear embossed her eyes and the cherry on the cupcake for some shine. I added 3 rhinestones  and some sparkly glitter numbers.  I hope i didnt do shiny overload!
did a repeat type layout on the inside with a little stamping at the time, It's a cupcake kind of day! Every day should be a cupcake kind of day you know!!! Thanks for stopping by!

Retro Recipe Album

Today I am posting this 5x5 Retro Recipe Album I made the last couple of days. I like making these up cuz they are quick and fun .
I did this album with the Fly a Kite Paper from October Afternoon. October Afternoon is one of my favorite paper brands.  I popped the whats cooking image off the page and layered it with 3 more papers to help your eye to be drawn to the center.  Machine stiching through out. I like to sew on my albums cuz it really makes them feel more like a stable book and gives them some uniqness. Lots of ribbons, all of which i bought at walmart.

Below you can see I made up some pocket pages to add some retro type recipe cards. I remember these recipe cards from back in the 70s, my foster mother had them in her recipe box. So I thought it would go good in this album, same colors and all. I used cutouts from crafty secrets in this album and cut out the little flowers from the papers to add to each page. Accented with tiny buttons i have.  
 I did this recipe album a little different, as i usually do every page a pocket page, so this time i wanted something different and just added a few recipe cards to the pages and accented with the crafty secrets images and flowers. Simple yet workable and cute.
 i did these two pocket pages again with some more of those retro recipe cards.  Some more crafty secrets and the strawberry image is an Graphic 45 image i think. More machine sewing and flowers and matching buttons.
 There are tabs both made for the pages and some that are the recipe card sticking out making up their own tabs, that can be labeled.
 The last pages are more pockets  to hold the recipe cards and more can be added through out the album. There are also 2 more pull out pages that can be used for funny cooking stories, stories from grandma or your mom etc...or just to add even more recipes! I hope this will sell quickly! Its really cute!
