New scrapbook layout

I love finishing up scrapbook layouts. I feel really accomplished when I get one done. 

I wanted to share my newest layouts - I made 2 layouts of my true loves  1) being my hubby & 2) being my puppy 

I love the one of us - it's so happy - I used Simple Stories papers & embellishments! Aren't they so colorful & happy��


And here is the second layout 

Aww now this is just to darn cute!!! Just used some basic paper & very few embellishments because I wanted my DOG Joe's photos to be the center of attention. 

I Sure hope you have time to scrapbook. It sure is a sweet hobby that leaves lasting impressions - 

Have a crafty weekend��

Going a little POM POM crazy

Can you really ever have too much cuteness? I mean really not only are these little guys super easy to make but I just seem to keep finding new things to do with them.

So in my attempt to de-clutter some of the extra "schtuff" 
 
Besides making the usually pom pom banner and placing some inside an apothecary jar how about making flowers with them...well something that resembles a flower...How easy is it to grab some hot glue and insert a skewer into the pom and shazaam FLOWER power...

 
Perfect for my Spring décor.

Playing with paper - again

 
I am really digging these new paper kits that I have been quietly hoarding buying {wink wink} I just started to use some new stamps by My Favorite Things and thought that the sentiment went well with one of the Dear Lizzy cameras in her embellishment kit went superbly well together.
 
Wouldn't you agree??

Bonnet bunnies

I just had to share the cutest little bunnies ever - which I proudly made - out of those little mini straw hats.
 
 
Each with a lightly different look to them.

 
Actually to be brutally honest - I first forgot which way the pom poms should go } like nose on top or under cheeks.

 
And then to show you that not everything I try works out - I thought I would share this spooky bunny - to which I thought I would try green eyes - makes him look a little scary, at the very least odd!!!
 
 
What do you think? It's a Fun little gift to make and give to teachers & friends.

Dollar Store Easter Decor

I love the dollar store.
I mean who doesn't, right. Sometimes you can find some really cool holiday decorations for a DOLLAR I mean cant get better then that right? I made a cute kitchen table centerpiece using only items bought at the dollar store...here are the items:
 
 
For $4.00 I bought 2 bags of Styrofoam Easter picks, 1 bag of grass and 1 Easter glass.


 
Here are the super easy steps!!
 
Stuft the Easter grass into the cup then play with the egg picks where ever you think looks good. And there you have it! Something cute and cheap and re-useable.
 
I like it when you can do things on the cheap...
I am sharing this at the parties above.
 
 

 
Happy Easter crafting

Spring has Sprung

I love Spring...it's not super hot and we still have cool mornings. The outdoors seem so alive and vivid - like the world is Refreshing itself. The roses are in full bloom and the birds are chirping - oh my how the birds are chirping...they seem to have found a nice perch right on our chimney which echoes into our living room {all day}

 
I am slowly refreshing my home as well. We started our kitchen renovations last Tuesday and are partially done. I am creating some cute little "bits" for my Spring mantel and getting my front porch ready to embrace the Spring weather.
Like this sweet birdhouse...just used one of the $1 bird houses from Joanne's painted it up and added that sugar candy glitter to the whole house - makes it look yummy kind of like candy dontch'a think?.
 
 

 
 Added some posie flowers and a sweet little egg...Makes for a sweet little decoration for my mantel

 
The best part of this project is that other then the birdhouse I had the paints and the embellishments on hand. Makes for a cheap little decoration. You could get as elaborate as you like in decorating the bird house. Imagine the possibilities!
 
I am linking this up to the parties above.
 
Hope you are feeling Spring where ever you at...Happy Crafting
