A Little Something ...

Hey Ya's!  Have you all been enjoying your week so far?  I hope so! 

Can you believe April is almost over?!  My gosh!  My little Bodhi only has a month and half more of school .. and then it's Summer!  Wowwww .. I swear he just started a new school year yesterday.  Goodness .. he's growing up so quick.  :(

Anyway .. a couple weeks ago, I had so much fun altering a box to hold some goodies with some favorite things and here it is:

Thinking of You ...

Hey Ya's!  The weekend is approaching quick .. are you ready?  :)

My little Bodhi had a "Fun Run" at school today to help raise money for the school.  They had 40 minutes to do laps around the cones .. and do you know he ran what equaled to 3 miles?!!!!!!  Yes!  I tell ya .. he has the energy of a battery.  lol!  And then when he came home from school, he STILL wanted to play!  omgosh right?!  Sheeesh .. I wish I still had that kind of energy!  lol!

Well, I've had fun making a card using some beautiful Maja Papers given to me by a lovely friend .. thank you dear!  :)




That cute lil' button and twine is from the fabulous Ribbon Girl Store.

Thank you so much for visiting me and I wish you all a beautiful weekend!  I'll see you soon!

Thank You ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you're having a beautiful week so far!

Well, I've made a Thank You card for the Ribbon Girls .. as I have decided to step down from their gorgeous team.  I absolutely loved my time with you .. Thank You so much for having me and for your sweetness!

For my card, I used one of my favorite releases from Lili of the Valley ... "Set 47 Background Bits - Old Romance".

Then from Ribbon Girls, I've used some goodies from their lovely store such as:
Pink Velvet Lace, Laila Lace, Phoebe Lace and Ivory Pearl Trim

Thank you so much for visiting me .. and I'll see you again soon!

Gratefulness ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you are all having a lovely week so far!

I have been having quite the sweet tooth lately .. and so I hit the store today (specifically Target .. hehe) and bought some of their Easter candy that they have on sale now.  Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate .. everything I got .. CHOC-O-LATE!  ;)  We normally try to stay away from sweets .. maybe I need a little comforting that I don't even know about .. lol .. but I definitely am craving for it terribly!  ;)

Well, here's a Spring card that I've finally made.  I love lambs .. they're so sweet aren't they?  I wish I could have a pasture full of them!  :) .. along with cows, goats, horses, chickens .. I'd so love that!



Well, thank you so much for visiting me and I wish you all a most BEAUTIFUL day!

I'll see you again soon!

Gypsy Chick ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you all had a BEAUTIFUL Easter!

We had a lovely Easter here .. Bodhi had fun finding Easter eggs and then we did our egg colourings. Can't believe his Easter break is over already .. gosh that went by TOO quick .. doesn't it always?  :(

Well, back in February I had coloured an image from Jeremiah Ketner and worked on an album which took me FOREVER to complete ... because I was a bit clueless on basically .. everything.  lol! Wow .. I had no idea!  I put it aside a few times to work on other things .. and I finally finished this a couple weeks ago.

I won't show you photo's of every single page I did .. cause it would be a LOT of photos (and I already have a lot here .. lol) .. but each turn holds something different.


  





Thank you so very much for visiting me and I'll see you again soon!

Thinking of You ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you're having a beautiful week so far .. getting ready for the weekend soon!  :)

My little man Bodhi will be on his Easter Break next week .. so we're looking forward to spending a lot of time just doing what we feel like doing.  ;)

I got to making a card using another Jeremiah Ketner's images that you can find here in his shop.  For some reason, I don't see this particular image available in his shop anymore .. I'm not sure why.  Hmmmmm .....  but I am glad I got her before he decided to remove her.

I've also used some goodies from the lovely Ribbon Girl store such as:





Thank you so much for visiting me and I wish you a most wonderful day!  See you again soon!

Wish ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you're enjoying a beautiful weekend!

Well, my family has just left .. and it is rather lonely without them.  :(  As always .. the visits are never long enough .. and lots of tears are shed when they leave.  Bodhi had a very nice surprise ... and once again he screamed with such delight as my family came out of their hiding spot.  lol!  My family comes up with such clever surprises .. this time they told Bodhi they would be testing the Time Machine my Dad had been "working on".  ;)  hehehehe ...

Anyway, it is time for a new Ribbon Girl Challenge, and there is a big change .. the Lovely Lili's challenge has now been changed to Everything Goes with Any Image.  You can use ANY image you'd like, and make any kind of project you like for the theme we have announced.  Easy peasy and fun!!!  So this week, the theme is "Birthday".

I've used a Leanne Ellis Santoro image called "Butterfly" that I've had for over a year now .. and finally inked her up.  Then decorated this card with some yummy Ribbon Girl goodies such as:



I do hope you'll come over and join in on the fun at the Ribbon Girl Everything Goes!

Dream Garden ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you're all having a beautiful week!

Well, I've attempted something new and finally finished it.  I made "somewhat" of an album .. but not quite a full album.  I decorated the entire outside with materials and lace .. I had a totally different idea in mind .. but of course did not turn out how intended.  hehe.

Then the inside is mainly papers and lots of pull out tags for journaling and such ...





Thank you so very much for visiting me .. I truly appreciate it and I would love to hear from you!  :)

Wishing you all a most WONDERFUL day!  See you again soon!

Hugs,
