featured, new blog, moving slow.......

We have been hit by the allergy season BIG time here! The last two weeks have been a total blur of sick people at my I am behind!

A few things I missed......

I got an AWESOME new custom blog, done by Amanda May Designs.  I won a free basic blog makeover on Giveaway Corner, and paid a little extra to get a deluxe redo :) I ♥ my new blog. Amanda did an amazing job designing graphics that are perfect for me (with just a bunch of jumbled ideas I gave her) This girl totally rocks, she is very fast, professional and TALENTED! I would recommend Amanda May Designs to anyone who wants to customize their blog. Amanda also does pre-made blog templates, business branding and has an esty store that sells graphic art, custom invites, and custom business cards.

Next on the list of things I missed....

I was featured on Practical Scrappers for Mother/Daughter Layouts.

Its an honor to be featured on their blog, wish I had been on here sooner to post about it. 

I still feel completely behind with life in general right now. My son ended up in the ER with pneumonia and asthma, then the next week had a horrible allergic reaction to something (maybe my mother's day flowers)  My husband has bronchitis and double ear infections. So I am running on fumes trying to take care of everything and the sickies.... hopefully I don't get sick from being run down :( The allergens in the air right now are brutal, and we are all living on double doses of allergy meds.   Hoping to get some creative time soon....

My Scraps DT Call

Just finished up my entry for the MyScraps DT call.

The LO was based on this recipe:

M…use products from your favorite Manufacturer
Y…yellow - got to have a little of the color somewhere on your layout
S…sewing - either with a machine or hand stitching, get that needle going!
C…circles – include at least one on your layout
R…ribbon – pull some out of your stash and use it here
A… All About You!
P…punch – use at least one on your page
S…style – make a layout that shows yours!

Lets see....M: my fave manufacturers... Well I have lots :), here we have some Sassafrass Lass, Jeni Bowlin, a little Hambly, even some October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket. 
Y: Yellow...yep got some yellow :) 

R: ribbon....a bit of cream color ball trim/ribbon

S: sewing, decided I didn't want a machine sewed look on this, so I did some hand sewing. I sewed on the two black buttons with silver thread, and I sewed down the corners of the photo strip. 

A: all about you...check!

P: Punch, you can see the treading water punch peaking out above. 

C: circles..... a few small circles peeking out, from the notebook paper, the toad stool below is also on a circle.  {the toad stool is coated in glossy accents, so its raised in person} 

and S: style...... well, Its hard to do one LO that encompasses my style, as it really depends on the paper. So I did some of my favorite things....... fussy cutting, layering, mixing designers, hand sewing. 

{as always, you can click on the pictures to make them bigger} 


the one that didn't make it.....

Working on a DT call....this is the LO that I started to make for the call...but it just wasn't what I wanted. I still like it, just not the right one :)


Sneakie Peek

I just finished up my cards for the next release of Sketches2Cards for the iphone, ipad or ipod touch. I can't share my cards, yet....but I can give you a few little sneaks :) 

As soon as the app is released I will get my cards up here to share :)

Its Official! Eye Candy! & Loot♥

Okay, its official....I am calling my crafty Hiatus to an end! Its been a long few months getting the kids school into a great routine {we made some HUGE changes this year to our homeschooling} And I can no longer stand not being crafty! I miss the glitter all over my clothes, the paint on my fingers, and the deadlines of design teams {yes, I know....crazy lady misses deadlines.....they give me a push♥}

So here is a kick off to the end of the break...... I finally get to share the LOs that I created for Sketches2scrapbook {and awesome ipad app created by the talented Anam Stubbington}

You will have to check out the app to get all the yummy sketches :) I did take a sneaky little break from all craftiness in January..... I had the honor of working with Anam again and making a card for the newest version of her app, Sketches4cards 

To help get my mojo going again, I scored a rawkin giveaway {can't find a link to the blog that hosted this sorry, if you are out there, please let us know} from the Nicole Lombardo Esty Shop

Tried to get some pics of my loot, but my black table was not the best me its awesome! I got a huge assortment of  diecuts, some as big as least $50 worth of product, even some fun rhinestone scrolls. Can't wait to get scrappy with these!
