at all of us to keep out! Aw the life of a teenager..... xoxo

Good Morning Sunshine!

Check out these cool chipboard books,
I found them at Michaels and they are quite a nice size, 6x6 all for a $1.00!
So the scrapbook below is made with one of them and new SU! Good Morning Sunshine paper, chipboard and stamp set. How cute is that paper! I just added photos and some embellishments and rub ons. My lighting is off today, must be cause it is raining so hard! :( xoxo

Elk in the am.....

This is what we get to wake up to every morning in the winter months at
the cabin. There are usually 80-100 elk feeding, I had to get my camera
out and I think I must have taken over 100 pictures of them! So incrediable! I know, I know, I need to post the craft! xoxox

Historical Roslyn Cemetary

This beautiful cemetary is just minutes from our cabin. It is Roslyn's Historical Cemetary, yet you feel like you've gone to Europe! It has such beauty and incrediable wealth of history. Just breathtaking.... or maybe I'm morbit! xoxo

Winter break is over..... sadness....

Phew! I am finally back! been on winter break with the kiddos. Had a great time snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing and trying out my new camera! Here are a few photos I shot last week.
I will post later today some crafts as well, but I didn't get a chance to get to any last week, hence the no posts! xoxox

Beautiful Butterflies

Can you see them? They are hiding among the flowers! They are also below separately. I used the new butterfly sizzix die from SU!.
It is the very large one and in order to get the butterfly large you need to fold your paper over and then cut them out. I cut two pieces of two different colors to obtain the two wing affect. I then slit two lines across the body in order to fit the smarties in them. I attached pink wire antenaes and added the hole with a hole punch and then the glitter! Soooo sooo easy to make! xoxo I would love to get a bouquet of these! xoxo

Clown Triangle Box

This clown box is so darn cute! It is made with the triangle box pattern I found on SCS. Make up the box, then for the head I used a 2" circle punch a 1" circle punch for his nose, a 3/4 for his eyes and circles on his hat. Punch out 2 orange scallop punchs or his hair and two light green ones for his collar. His hat trim is cut from wave scissors. The ribbon you see is the closure to the box. Use a light pink ink to lightly add his cheeks. Have fun making him and planning a party around him. Ha Ha! XOXO

Mini Album

Here is a sweet mini album you can accomplish in as little as 2 hours.
The dimensions are as follows:
Outside book is 3 3/4 x 10 1/2, I then took a bowl and traced around the one side of the book to get the rounded end. The inside accordian pieces will
be cut as follows: 2 pieces of cardstock cut at 3 1/2 x 10 1/2, score both pieces at 3 1/2 and then fold into
an accordian. You will then need to piece
the two together with adhesive, that is how you get it so long. Then go ahead and decorate your book with photos and embelishments. You will find you can make quite a few of these very quickly.......

Go Red!!!

These cute bags can be found at the dollar spot at Target. I went ahead and created a bag topper for them.
Cut a 4x6 piece of yo yo yellow and one 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 white cardstock, then stamp the white cardstock with
a background stamp of choice.
For the frogelina you will punch out a 1/3/4 circle in green galore, and a 1 1/4 circle in gable green. then three large ovals in green galore and two 3/4 circles in green galore and 1/2 circles in black. The feet are cute out of a flower punch. I then assembled all the pieces together and cut out a crown from metallic silver cardstock and punch real red hearts from the SU! punches. I used a rollo gel pen in white to make the eyes. Have fun creating them!
