Red, White & Blue Centerpiece

Hi Everyone!
Have I gone too far??? Someone needs to take the burlap from me before I wallpaper my house with it :) I LOVE it!
So I set out to create some tags for the 4th of July BBQ and Beach party we have every year. I just wanted some simple tags to decorate some gift bags for the kids. Well I saw these glass containers sitting in my cabinet and thought of my burlap obsession and well my tags got attached to these and now they are the centerpieces for the 4th table. I'll just have to make more tags. Hope you like my fun centerpieces, I plan to fill them with licorice and popcorn YUM! I have a great idea for summer centerpieces using the same vases...stay tuned :)

Another gift bag....with burlap

Just thought I would pop in and post a quick gift bag made for my Aunt. I made it with a few challenges in mind. Little Scrap Pieces - Use purple & Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Butterflies & Bows  which I was too late for :( & Docerela Creations I also wanted to mention that Karen from LSP was the inspiration behind this as she sent me an adorable gift bag with some goodies in it and I just fell in love with the bag. (Thank you Karen)
I hope you all have a SUPER day!

Happy Birthday to you!

Hi Everyone!
Summer is here, well not officially (that's tomorrow) but in our world the stores are full of summer stuff, the kids are out of school, bikes are being ridden, popsicles are being eaten, and the mom's are pulling their hair out :) My son has a BF a few doors down so it's been great but some of my girlfriends are already going crazy :) Hope everyone is enjoying it so far!
Most of you that follow my blog know how much I love my "peachies". I had a friend stop in a few weeks back with a "Peachy" gift. So thrilled!!! 
Here is a card I created for the Peachy keen stamps "Sketch" challenge. I went ahead and created a card for her birthday even though it's not until November. How's that for being ahead of the game:) I hope you have a SUPER day!!

Happy Father's Day

Hi Everyone!
Enjoying your week? It's the last week of school for us so we've been doing lots of end of year parties and yesterday the entire 2nd grade walked over to our local nature park and had lunch and an ecology hunt. It was a ton of FUN! 
So I did manage to put together a Fathers Day card for my Dad. It only took 5 days (hee hee) Every time I stepped foot in my Craft room last week and this week I heard....Mom I can't find...., Mom I spilled...., Mom I'm hungry..., I'm sure most of you can relate :) Well here is my card.

It's a Minnie Party

Hi Everyone! Warning lots of pics.......
I hope you had a GREAT weekend. We had so much fun. Lots of family time and two great parties. So I have lots of pics to share of my nieces birthday.  What a gorgeous day, great food, lots of sun, bubbles, face painting, and lots of laughs.
So As I mentioned I made all of the decorations for the party, now I will say some of the photos aren't the best because although it was sunny, it was very windy. 
First up are the cupcake toppers:
These were simple and easy. Made with a scallop punch and the Mickey & Friends Cricut cartridge

Add a little white gel pen and there you have it :)
Next up I wanted to show you the party bags are filled up.
Here is the banner that I created, I wish I would have taken photos before I got there. It says "I am 1"

Lastly are some fun shots of the kids and our Lola enjoying the party and the watermelon:)
Laney and I enjoying bubbles

My youngest with the scariest face the Bubble Lady could create :)
Laney LOVED her watermelon

Lola had to have some too..

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed!
