LMCB #26 - Reduce, Re-use, Recycle!

***Winner for my blog candy will be posted this aft!!!***

Morning all! This weeks challenge at Lasting Memories is another fun one, but really had me thinking and searching! We're asking you to "Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle"! I did this once before and really had to think. So, for my layout, I chose to recycle the little green and cream colored flowers from my Aunt's wedding. I brought a ton of them home and thought they worked quite nicely! We also have another sponsor this week..Heart Song Designs! To find out how and what you win, hop on over to Lasting Memories! Be sure to check out all the DT inspiration while you're there and a HUGE heartfelt thanks to Heart Song Designs for sponsoring us this week! I chose "Ana and Flower" for my layout. Isn't she super cute???

It's All About Letters, Shapes and Numbers!

Hi all! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day today. The sun is finally shining here and the snow is starting to melt. Supposed to be in the + by the wknd!! Yahoo! So, today I ended up only having 1 of 4 daycare kids, so I decided to be a little productive and include Landen. Out came the cricut and my laminating machine and we came up with this idea! I've laminated everything and gave Landen a dry/erase marker as well so he can trace/erase and trace again! His name is done both separate letters and then all together as well. He's having a BLAST with his new goodies! He just turned 3, so I thought this would be a fun learning tool for him.He can't wait to show his parents and he's been toting his ziplock bag of letters, shapes and numbers EVERYWHERE! Too cute!

  2. Paper Romance #37 - Clean and Simple Valentine's Card
  3. Cute Card Thursday #151 - Hearts and Flowers

    Here's my Valentine Roses, aren't they beautiful? The card was gorgeous too, here's what it said:

    My Wife, My Love

    You've held my hand in Celebration and in sorrow, you've held my dreams like they were your very own...You've held me close through all the ups and downs of real life and real love - no wonder you'll always hold my heart

      LMCB #24 - Use Your Cricut and/or Die Cut Shapes!

      Good morning!! It's Sunday, which means time for another Lasting Memories challenge!! This week we're challenging you to use your cricut and/or die cut shapes on your layouts. I have 2 here to show you. The first one I used my cricut to cut the letters and the second to cut the fish. I then added some liquid glass to make little bubbles. Not bad huh?

      Hop on over to Lasting Memories to be inspired by my DT and if you can, we'd love to see you play along with us! Have a happy Sunday!

      FBW #140!

      I have finally had a chance to do a card for one of my favorite challenges!! It's an OPEN challenge over at Flutter By Wednesday this week! I had this card that I made just a couple days ago and knew it needed just a little something more. What better than a butterfly!! I think it was just what it needed.

      We got ALOT of snow yesterday! Our first snow day in at least 2 yrs and the kid's were happy about that! The snow just kept coming! I'll try and get some pics to post on my photography blog later. Hope everyone is staying warm wherever you are! Have a great day!
