After the Holidays

Now that Christmas is over, it's time to get back to normal!
I altered this recipe box last night
I need a place to keep all my recipe swaps
I made it to match my kitchen

Living Hallelujah

I love this song!
I really want to scrap it, just need to find the right pic
Living Hallelujah

Who am I?
That You came to earth for me
To die on a tree?
Who are you?
Son of man, Son of God
Yes, I believe it's true
More than words I bring to You
May all I say and may all I do be

Hallelujah, hallelujah
May everything about me be
Hallelujah to my King
Hallelujah, hallelujah
May everything about me be hallelujah

All of me
I surrender completely
Take control
I want all of You
So I'm letting go

I am healed and I'm forgiven
I am free because I'm living

Hallelujah, hallelujah
May everything about me be
Hallelujah to my King
Hallelujah, hallelujah
May everything about me be hallelujah

It's all so clear, it's all so clear
I was born to worship

Hallelujah, hallelujah
May everything about me be hallelujah
~Sarah Kelly~

The land of Ornaments

I would have never thought that making little gifts for friends
could be so much fun!

The birds were hand cut from Tagboard and then covered
with Scrapworks PP
The snowflakes are Cosmo Cricket chipboard
Crackle painted with a red base and
backed with Scrapworks PP
It was really heart warming to have a friend truly LOVE
a gift because of the thought and effort that went into it
I am completely converted, I will for now on make
handmade gifts for Special friends!

Walking in a scrapbook wonderland

Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!
Shakers rattle, are you listenin'?
In the aisle, beads are glistenin'!
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight!
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!
Gone away is my money
Here to stay's my croppin' buddy!
We're singing a song, as we shop along
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!
In the workroom we can build a layout
Using diecuts, punches, fibers too!
We'll have lots of fun making our layout
And they have just the right shade of Bazzill blue!
Later on, we'll conspire
As we crop by the fire
To bring all our pics and our hermafix
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland
In the workroom we can build a layout
With our eyelets, stickers, tags and brads.
We'll have lots of fun making a layout!
All those patterned papers make me glad!
When we crop, ain't it thrillin',
Though the shop's makin' a killin'?
We'll frolic and play the Scrapbooking way
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland.
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland.
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!! !

hostess gits

I had a ton of fun making Hostess gifts today

These birds were cut out of the piece of tag board that is the back cover of a PP stack
(and then covered front and back with PP)
I hope you can see the glimmer mist in the close up
I LOVE my new glimmer mist!

I made two of these ornaments out of a empty glue dots tube
the star is grunge much fun!!!
I painted it, glittered it, inked it, oh and also covered it with dimensional glaze....

The gift box is another "trash to Treasure"
it was the box that some MM Noteworthy diecuts came in

A scrappylioucs day

Yesterday was a crazy busy and stressful day for me...
so I had to make time to scrap
it's my stress reducer!

The letters at the top of the page are red acrylic and thick like thicker, much prettier in person
the green dots are my new favorite thing to do.
Put a large glue dot on the page and then cover it with micro fine glitter.
the finished product is so pretty, looks like a bought emblie
I just love getting these photo Christmas cards from family!
This one was to cute not to scrap

Okay this pic just speaks for it's self! CJ was our only chubby baby and boy did he have great cheeks!
I really miss those baby cheeks

Online Christmas party!!!!

I am joining the online Christmas party at Lilliput Station!!!
The kids and I are doing a unit study for the month of December on the symbols of Christmas. I first symbol is a advent wreath. Well the best part of unit studies are the crafts, right?!?!?!
So here is ours......

We had so much fun putting this hand print wreath together.

This is uber simple!

Trace the kids (parents to if you want)

mount on some kind of a ring, we used one cut out of card stock

decorate as you wish.......

I raided my scrappy stash

Basic grey fruit cake papers

Petaloo and prima flowers

gold stickles

random buttons

Go create with you family, most importantly....
and don't forget to join the online Christmas party
