Vintage goodies...

Vintage goodies make awesome cards. hehe This month at The embellishment studio the kits are filled with them. The flower on the card is in the eclectic and hodge podge kits. They were made by Debbie VanMarter one of the DT gals. They are just gorgeous. I sprayed some coffee glimmer mist on the green and cream fabric. There are also a few tags in the kits that I had a blast designing for The embellishment studio.


I will have a sneak peek with some March goodies from The embellishment studio up tomorrow. Yall are gonna love it.

Do you need a clip it up????

I have been cleaning and purging in my scrap room and came to the realization that I don't use my clip it up. So I took it apart and boxed it up and decided I would RAK it away to someone who will get more use out of it then me... It is the upper and lower tier along with the cover and lots of clips and dividers... Worth $120.00 Sooooooooo if you have been wanting a clip it up. All you have to do is go to Secret Scrapper and post HERE why you need one and show me a photo to go with your story. I will be putting all names in a hat and having Joshua pick one out on Monday morning. So be sure to post by Sunday night at midnight and you could be the lucky winner. Also why your there check out the amazing products they have... They are awesome.

Long weekends...

I have a love hate relationship with long weekends. I hate them when hubby is gone and the weather stinks, but love them when the weather is awesome and when hubby is home. hehe

Yesterday we had a bunch of running around and it was nice not having to dodge the rain etc.

Today the little guys and myself took a long walk in the woods behind our home. I have been wanting to get some good photos of the boys in their element and my mom was hounding me for some photos. Plus I wanted to play with my Cannon SLR with the HD film. So we went on a stroll with my cameras in tow. hehe Here are a few shots I got with my Olympus DSLR Evolt 510 (if you click the photos it will bring them up bigger)

I just love Joshua's smirk in this photos. He is so funny and his personality really shows in this.

This one isn't too bad. I need to figure out how to not get a glare on his glasses. But it's still a good photo and love how he dressed himself. hehe

This is Isaiah and well who needs school photos when you get a shot like this. I love it. hehe


This photo I thought was kinda cool. I have an idea for a layout with this photo.

Well I hope you had a great long weekend.
