April Stamp of the Month

Here is a card that I made using the April Stamp of the Month-"Worlds Best Dad" I used the water pen to give the fish a two toned look. Just pick up vineyard berry ink with the water brush and color half of the fish. Clean brush and pick up sweet leaf ink to color other half of fish and blend together.

Below is a list of items I used to create this card.

I am so OVER THE EDGE......

Well, I have not posted anything for a few weeks because I am over the edge. I never dreamed how remodeling one room would create such a mess and disaster. My entire house is covered with either new appliances waiting to be installed or Close To My Heart boxes filled with pots, pans, pantry items ect.... I discovered that I don't deal well with mess and chaos. I wake up in the morning look at the mess and want to go right back to bed. Some days I actually do. Right now I wish I was on a big boat in the middle of the ocean.

We still have lots to do. We or should I say Fred has to finish the tile, finish knocking out that pantry wall, build a pony wall for the bar, paint ect... The electrician should be here any day to do the electricity for my double oven. Did you see that I said "MY DOUBLE OVEN" Fred gives me grief about that double oven every day. However when it's all done I know he will love it.

This oven reminds me of when we were finishing our basement. I really wanted wood stairs. Well as Fred finished each wooden stair he took my name in vain with each piece of wood that he placed down. However, after it was all done he said that was the best thing we have ever done and he loves my wood stairs.

Anyway, new cabinets will be here this Saturday. I'm not sure where we are going to store them until they will be installed on May 11th. I think on May 12th I will have a major party, well hopefully I will at least be able to post a finished kitchen project before we move onto the next room.

"Tickled Pink"

May is National Scrapbook month so to celebrate this event we have a wonderful kit that will add a little spring, bling, and everything you love. You can view complete details here on how to get your very own Tickled Pink scrapbook kit.

Offer good from April 15th-May 31st. Below are my layouts I did with the kit. I changed things a little and added some ribbon. You are welcome to follow the brochure, copy mine or do your own thing. You will love this kit. It's so easy to use.

The kit comes with a sheet of die-cuts on textured white cardstock. All I did is stamp the flowers on the cardstock and then put them on the layout.

Putting this together was so simple.

"That's Amore" Expo Create and Take

Click on image to enlarge

I had some great memories brought back when I started putting photos on this layout. This was my Europe trip I took with my girls in 2006. We had so much fun and it was one of the best things we have ever done together. This paper pack was perfect for these Europe photos. The one thing I love about Europe is the detail the buildings and structures have as well as how old the structures are.
