My grand kids will be home today and i wanted to be all done for them.....maybe I will finish tomorrow. Hope your Christmas season is the best ever. Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Another fruit display

Back in June, I posted the fruit display Brandy and I made for our friends daughter's wedding. At that wedding a lady approached me and asked if we did these commercially, I explained we just do them for friends, family and church events. She seemed disappointed and mentioned her 70th birthday was coming up and she was going to throw herself a party and was so hoping we would do one for her. How can you turn down someone who is going to be celebrating her here is her fruit display. Her party was a hit & she invited hubby & I to stay and since we knew other couples there we did. We ended up sitting and talking until 1:40 in the morning, my cheeks hurt so bad from laughing. I am so glad we didn't pass up the opportunity to make some great new friends.

Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful creative day!

Football Season!

As if y'all didn't know that! My grandson is playing so I snapped a few pictures of him making his tackles. He loves it, must be a boy thing or something. I want to thank Tracy at Trixie_Scraps Designs for the cute page starter. Hope you having a great day!

I actually made a card.....and some older ones I made.

This card is one I made awhile ago.....just never posted My friend Jenn has inspired me to get back into making a few cards. Not sure how long it will last.

This one is actually one I made recently, the picture doesn't show that the 2 leaves are actually 3D and popped up off the page. I am so rusty when it come to coloring. Maybe I will get the hang of it ....kinda like riding a bicycle........Maybe!!

Who knows maybe I will even get in the habit of posting promise or threat (however you might take that comment) LOL.. Happy crafting and happy thoughts!

We were fortunate to get a glimpse of this herd of Elk up by Big Lake. They were pretty amazing. We watched them for about 10 minutes until a noisy truck turned onto the road we were on. The truck ended up turning around but it was so noisy the herd jumped a fence and headed the opposite direction. We also saw deer, muskrat, 2 snakes, ducks, caught some fish and a coyote(we didn't catch the coyote....just the fish) on our trip in and around Greer.

Squirrel with high cholesterol

My SIL and I had fun photographing this crazy squirrel who came right up to us. I guess he figured if we were going to feed him we must be OK. We had the door to our cabin open and he almost ran in there......probably wouldn't have been a good idea. He sure was cute.

Missing the cool weather

We just got back from Greer where I had to wear 2 sweatshirts, long pants & i kept my shoes on to keep warm. Waddell on the other hand is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!!!! It rained every afternoon and even though the Wallow fire went through there, it seemed to be hit and miss, the forest was beautiful. Hope you are well. Happy crafting.

Courtney sent me this picture of our little man on his 1st merry-go-round from her cell phone. I was pretty impressed at how clear it turned out. I sure miss this little guy. I used a template from Tiffany Keetch which was a freebie. Thanks Tiffany.

Heading to Az

I bought this kit from awhile ago and never got around to playing with it. My little grandson went home to Texas a few weeks ago and decided he wanted to come back to visit so he loaded up his puppy and headed for the door. He wanted to see the cows, the puppies , his cousins and his Boppa. Miss the little guy. Hope you are having a great day.

Another Fruit Display

My daughter(Brandy) and I made another fruit display for some good friends daughter's wedding. Brandy took these pictures, the blue flowers in the top were the bouquet that the bride threw. We normally just do this for close friends or church functions but a lady approached us asking if we would consider making one for her. She is celebrating her 70th birthday in October......we are going to do it for her birthday for her and hope she enjoys it.

Love the added touch

DH gave me flowers for Mother's Day, he decided the flowers he gave me needed a pick me up so he went to the garden & picked 3 onions that went to seed and added them to my bouquet. I love the added touch. They do not smell like onions either and really are beautiful. My DD said when she gets married we need to plant some onions in time for them to go to seed so she can make her bridal bouquet out of them.
Here is a close up of one of the onion tops that went to seed. Pretty huh!
Wanted to show you what I did for my neighbors 46th birthday. She drives a tractor on golf courses and likes to suck on suckers so I thought this was a great gift plus it was fun giving her a little poke for growing older. In case you can't read it it says "46 Sucks". She is still younger than me so I didn't want to gouge her too much. LOL Hope your day is prosperous & happy!

The Rock

I am trying to play catch up on classes I started ages ago & somehow life got in the way of me finishing them. Thank goodness I can go back and review videos from all my classes to refresh my worn out memory on how to do certain things. This is from the 2nd Digi in Deep series that Jessica Sprague offers. This was a fun little project that is 12 X 24. Hope you are inspired & have a great day CREATING!!!

Miss Diva

I'm finally caught up with my classes. Here are my pages.

I have learned so much from these classes. I just hope i can retain half of what I have learned. I miss my friend Jenn....she is in Alaska....kissing a moose. She definitely is adventurous. Sam has a new hip and will be signing up to run a marathon in a few months. Laura should be out of school on spring break soon, not sure about all you other crazy friends....if they kept in touch more I guess I would know. Maybe a luncheon is in order...what do you think?

Copic Trial Run

My friend Jenn teaches several Copic classes at various stores around the Phoenix area. She needed someone who had never used copics so Vickie and Jenn volunteered to be her guinea pigs. I have copics myself and have used them but Jenn allowed me to join in. Her classes are amazing and she is such a person & fun classes. She, on top of everything, is on several design teams such as Dustin Pikes Doodle Dragon Studios, Stampendeous and Talkabout Images. She does work for Creative Impressions too. If you want to learn digi scrapping that is amazing go sign up for a class at . Have creating!!!

Next 2 assignments

Our assignment for today was to make an edgy page. The lesson was packed with fun new things to learn, my only hope is to remember half of what I learned. Thanks goodness I can always refer back to my videos on the lesson. I love how my page turned out.

Lesson 3 taught us how to put an angle to our design. Loved this lesson also. Have a great day and happy creating!

Lesson 2

Can I just say how amazing the tips that Jessica gives us are. I love how she directs us to other sites for crazy and wonderful goodies, not that she doesn't provide us with plenty herself. Anyway, this was a fun project that had me going back to the video several times to watch steps a few times through until I finally had my light bulb go on....LOl. The rabbit is by Patty Knox but the rest is from the class. This isn't the style i normally would gravitate to so stepping out of my box was good.

Quad Squad

I just wanted to play around with the techniques I learned today so I did one more page. Have a great evening!!

1st class project

Here is my finished project from my Deeper: in Digi class with Jessica Sprague. I love what I learn from these classes. Whats even better is I am able to reference back to materials from the very 1st class I took. The classes are at my pace and jammed packed with fun and new techniques. Sounds like I am plugging for her but I am really just telling you my view point. is the Sexy Tractor! LOL.
