Easter Layouts

Good morning and happy Monday!  I trust that everyone had a great weekend.  I attended a mixed-media class at Cootie Coo Creations in High Springs.  I had a wonderful time.

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year, especially Easter with all of the beautiful pastel colors.  Here are couple of layouts of mine showing all of those luscious colors!

The Peeps

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hope your week has been great and that you have terrific plans for the weekend.

I'd like to introduce to you a group of scrapping buddies from upstate New York.  When they introduced themselves to me they said that they were The Clan.  I told them about The Hive (we call ourselves Bees), The Birds (ladies with bird first name) and The Butterflies.  They put their collective heads together and they are now The Peeps.

What a great name!  Peeps are colorful and sweet!  And who does not enjoy having Peeps around (especially at Easter)?  Just do not put them in the microwave!!!


I continue to be inspired by these lovely papers and have made a couple more single-page layouts. Here are two of them.



Thanks for your visit today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day and a safe and restful weekend!

Single Page Layouts

Good morning and happy Thursday!  Riddle; what does every scrapbook have  two of and what does it take to fix them?  Answer: a front & back page and two single page layouts to fix them.

Here are a couple of single page layouts that I made.  There not for any specific reason. I just felt like making some single page layout.

The Crafty Dreamers: Craft Escapes

Good morning and happy Tuesday!  Several friends from The Hive and I went to The Crafty Dreamers: Craft Escapes at Disney this past weekend.

Here I am with Ann Marie Bolen, our hostess for the weekend.


There was a hat contest, Hive member Linda Norris took second place with her creation. 


Our friend Beatriz (on the right) is modeling the first place hat which sported ears from from nearly every Disney character.


Here we are with the shades that came in our welcome goody bag.


Oh, and by the way, we also had time to crop.  Here's one of the layouts that I made.


Crafty Dreamers' next event is in July.  Go to their Facebook page to get more details.  Sign up early because their events fill up quickly.

The Ides of March

Happy Thursday! Hope your week has been a great one so far. It's been very cold around here but nothing compare to the Northeast. I have a friend who lives in upstate NY who almost got her house buried in the snow!
My talented friend Mary and her husband made this stand for my ATG adhesive gun from scratch. She even painted it my favorite color and personalized it.  Soooo sweet!

Tomorrow is March 17th and there are two important events happening. One is St. Patrick's Day and the other one is the release of the movie the Beauty and the Beast. These are two of my latest kits. 

Send me an email in case you want these kits. Remember I only make a few of them at a time. 
Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Is it Spring or Not?

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  On Monday the students at Andrew's pre-school all planted flowers in their "Peace Garden".  Here's Andrew with his.  Unfortunately, the past two evenings have been unseasonably cold.  The plants did OK the first night, but we don't know yet if they made it through last night.  We'll know at 2:30 today when I pick him up.

Carolina wants to plant one too so her mom went out and got her one.  We're going to keep it indoors until Spring arrives for good!


Here's a layout of mine  announcing the arrival of Spring.

Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastels

Good morning and happy Tuesday!  Here are Jill Bushart and I showing off our LuLaRoe bee leggings at the "Cropping with Bea" crop at Treasured Memories last week.  Are we a sight, or what?



One of my latest finds are the Water Soluble Oil Pastel pens from Prima.  I played with them all weekend!


I used them in conjunction with rubber stamps from Stampendous.  Here are some birds.


And this is the finished product.


Here are some sea shells stamps.


Which make a lovely beach scene.

Crop with Bea

Good morning and happy Monday!  I'm glad to be back home after an amazing weekend at Treasured Memories.  After the Faith Crop on Thursday, we had a two day "Cropping with Bea" on Friday and  Saturday.


I designed 24 kits for Treasured Memories which you can see and order directly from TM's web site.  I used the amazing titles that Janet creates and designs from scratch. here are two of my favorite ones.



Here I am with my dear friend  Sherry.


And here I am with the always-smiling-happy Raven, one of the founding Birds from the "Birds and Bees".

Faith Crop

Good morning and happy Friday!  Yesterday was our first Faith Crop at Treasured Memories.  What a great time we had on this day full of inspiration, devotion and fellowship.  Here I am leading the crop.

We participated in Bible journaling, prayer journaling as well as making a pocket page layout and a two page layout.  Here is that layout.


And here are some pictures of the crop in progress.

Gigi's Nest

Good morning and happy Thursday.  Yesterday the Bee's traveled from North Florida to Louisiana.  It would have been a three hour shorter trip had we not made several very important stops along the way.  Here we are at a Michaels, conveniently located near I-10.


St. Patrick's Day is next week, so we had to get ready to celebrate!


And then Easter is just over a month away, so we had to get ready for that!  (Certainly you didn't think that we're looking for work at the Bunny Club?)


And here is our destination, Gigi's Nest, a lovely little scrapbooking cottage owned by Pat Guidry.  It's located in Crankton, Louisiana, just northwest of Lafayette.


Absolutely perfect for insomniac scrappers.


The decorations are absolutely gorgeous.




And the bedrooms are comfortable and cozy!



The Faith Crop at Treasured Memories does not start until 10 this morning, so there's no need to let all this wonderful scrapping space go to waste!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful and blessed day!
