Last day of March already?

Good morning! I spent some time scrappin' with my friends and this is what I made mostly... baby pages!!! I guess I am practicing for my own grand-baby. This is going to be Mary Kate's first page in her album. I used Webster and Graphic 45  papers and of course, Prima flowers and bling.

For this layout I also used Webster and Graphic 45 papers. I love those flowers! They all come from one sheet of paper, cut out individually.

Tattered Angel clock  and Tim Holtz stamp which I love.

For this layout I used MME Lost & Found papers. Blue and brown together  are so pretty! This is my beautiful niece Gabriela during her ring ceremony event in South Florida.

Have a fabulous and blessed day!

Spring is here!

Good morning! Another layout filled with flowers and butterflies and it is because Spring is here! Flowers are blooming everywhere and birds are singing as early as 5 am! I used Cindy Lou Cricut cartridge to cut out my flowers, then I embossed them with the cuttlebug.

These pictures were taken at Michael's and at Hobby Lobby. We love to try out their seasonal hats!

This is a sneak peak of Paper Niche's April's kit which will be revealed this Friday. Stay tune for more!

Happy birthday to my dear friend Cassia! I wish you the best birthday ever!!!!!! Love ya!

" A new baby is a gift from above"


Good morning! I had so much fun making this layout with Mary Kate's pictures from the hospital.

I wanted something different than store-bought flowers because my angel is "very rustic". I remembered I had these stamps called "outline" so I stamped my own flowers in papers that matched and popped them up.

The leaves are also stamped, I love how they all turned out.

Here is a close up  of my angel... isn't she cute?

I get to hold Mary Kate today while her mom and grandma scrap... can't wait!!! Have a wonderful day!

Happy Monday!

Good morning! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. We had a hail storm yesterday  and it was pretty scary for a little while as the wind picked up. Some local friends had a lot of damage on their roofs and property.


After the storm passed we went out and drove the Azalea Dogwood Trail here in Dothan. The flowers were pretty but there weren't as many  "southern belles" as in previous years. We hope they do it again next week so that more of these pretty young ladies get to show off their elegant gowns.

I am a "southern belle" from further south... South America, that is!


I finally got my kits up here on my blog. Just click on it (left column) and you can see them there.  This is the layout I will be teaching next Friday at Hobby Lobby using BoBunny's new line called Gabrielle. Love those colors and  butterflies!

 My friend Mindy from Pretty Little Paper Love is celebrating her 100th post and has a great Blog Candy Giveaway. Make sure you visit her for a chance to win it! 

Have a fabulous and blessed day!

Flowers galore....

Good morning! Today I will be teaching this layout at Hobby Lobby here in Dothan. It is a cricut class using Cindy Loo and the new Prima  and  K&Co. papers.

My friend Peggy came over and we played all day and when she wasn't looking I got into her boxes and look what I made!

I dressed the dress form with skirts made out of cupcake holders!!!! She's the angel and I am the other one. She caught me before I wrote the title! She has GREAT stuff!!!!

She made the following FABULOUS pages. She loves MMI  Lost & Found Collection, can you tell?

My friend Jenny from Wee Memories is having a great giveaway.

She is the one who designed my blog and you can visit her here:

Have a blessed weekend!

Happy Thursday!

Good morning! There is nothing sweeter than a baby, right? My friend Karen had Mary Kate about 3 weeks ago. I couldn't think of a better title than the word THANK YOU. You see, children are a gift from God and that precious baby is His gift to her. Her niece Shelby feels so happy to finally hold her little cousin!

I found these metal pieces perfect for my page.

Canvas album

Happy Tuesday!  allergies this year are torturing me in a bad way and  if I speak louder than a whisper my head will explode!!!! Our silver car is covered with yellow pollen every morning, it must be turning into a blonde by now!

This is the canvas album I will be teaching at A Scrap in Time in Crestview this weekend. It is filled with products from  7 gypsies, Prima screens, glimmer mists, lots of embellishments and techniques.
