It's Friday!!!

I am doing a dance, I am soooo happy!!!  I have the whole weekend off, which is a very good thing because I didn't sew on Benny's costume at all last night.  I definitely have my work cut out for me!  I have a full day of school today and then I am off.  I will head to the scrapbook store and Michaels right after school then rush home and get busy!!  I have to make the Tarzan costume, a chicken costume, a lifeguard costume (Baywatch style), make sure he has what he needs for his Garth Costume,  and his Don Johnson-Miami Vice costume.  I feel like I am missing something-I hope not!!  I am going to have to scrap in there somewhere too!! It is going to be a creative weekend for sure!!

Some awesome news!!!  The Beautiful Girls layouts I did for the Little Red Scrapbook February kit was chosen as the banner of the week at the Inspire Me Blog.  You can see it here.
I am extra excited about it because it is one of my favorite layouts ever!!  Whoo hoo!!  

CPS #104

It took me a couple of days to get my CPS card done for this week.  I don't know why I had scrapper's block with this one, but I am finally happy with the results.  

I used my Studio Calico kit including Making Memories Tags and Paper, K & Co. Cardstock Ephemera, K & Co. Funky Striped Glitter Patterned Paper, Melissa Frances Frame, Kaiser Kraft Pearls,  and Stampin Up! ribbon.

Just for Fun

I also did a couple of layouts just for fun!!   I used all my favorite Graphic 45 Papers in this one.  
This beautiful picture is of my Grandmother.  I am so glad I found this picture.  It just makes me happy!!  I used papers from the Times Nouveau Collection as well as the Botanicabella Collection.  I cut the vine out with my Cricut and I used some Prima Florals, jewels and ribbon, some Michaels Ribbon and lace, and some Metals from Tim Holtz.  Below are some close-ups


The next project is a little wall hanging that I did with a picture I photoshopped of my mom.  I think I will give this project to my sister for her birthday.  It was another theraputic layout as I am still working out my feelings from my mom's passing.  
I used the G45 Playtimes Past line and I really like how it turned out.  The quote states:  God gave us memories that we might have roses in December (Barrie).  You can see in the picture below that I used some vintage glass glitter around the edges.  I also used some lace and ribbon from Michael's and Making Memories alphas.   I hope she likes it!!




Thank you for taking a peek at my heart today.  

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!
Oh and don't forget to stay tuned for a big surprise over at Scrapping the Music!!!
