I'm In the Mood!!!!......For Scrapbooking.....



I Love the "kayliegh" layout! I did not stamping...
just Elements!
and The Family page is so the reason that I love
my Cricut!!!! I am not a "journaler"
but at least need to put a title , and the date the
pictures were taken.
I so love this paper, will have to stock up, cuz it is retiring
from ctmh this year! ( let's get together)

so I randomly took the colors out of her top,
topiary, yellow and ocean, used the ctmh pop out
die cuts, felt shapes are hero arts, stamped images
are bo bunny press....
very springy colors ( these were taken in the spring)

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!



It was a beautiful Mothers Day!
we had a great Steak dinner, played
some games, spent time together.
The buds on the tree's are so
pretty right now!
My photo
I have a great passion for creating, and have been stamping and scrapbooking for over 15 years now! I absolutely love handmaking things and haven taken over an entire room in our basement as a"craft room".

I have been married to my wonderful husband Kurt for 23 years, and have three daughters ages 21, 19, and 15. We love animals and have two dogs and several horses.
I also enjoy hairstyling and run my own hair salon.
