Long Road Trip with Children

So we are going on a vacation. Driving from NW Arkansas down to the Gulf of Mexico to see my mother in Biloxi MS. My husband and I will be driving down there, in a small car, with three children in the back seat. I've been making up games and creating bags for each child with activities they can do while we drive for two days with a few stops in between. I'm not sure if this is a smart idea or not but I think we'll have fun once we're out of the car. Wish us luck! LOL

Bo Bunny Blog July Card Sketch Challenge




Here is my card for the Bo Bunny Blog July Card Sketch Challenge. We were challenged to make a card using this sketch and a birthday theme. For my design I turned the sketch on end and worked from that. I included one of my hand drawn and hand cut sillouettes. Happy Birthday!

Travel in style Purse & journal





A cigar box purse inspired by Graphic 45 papers. I bought the cigar box off ebay over a year ago and was inspired by it's unique shape. I knew I wanted to make a purse out of it but wasn't sure what theme or design I would use until I saw these neat papers from Graphic 45. I covered the front and back of the box and also handmade a journal in the same unique shape as the box to fit inside. The handle I found at Hobby Lobby, 2 clear handles actually that I sandwiched a piece of Graphic 45 paper in between and made into one handle. A red tulle bow sets it off. I love this purse.

A tweet Card!


I just made this card. Today is a very nice summer day here in Arkansas. This morning was cool and the birds were all out chirping and that is what inspired this card. I had a lot of fun with it.

A Youthful cigar box purse.



Here is a little project I threw together using a small cigar box with a clasp and some romantic images and scrapbooking supplies I had lying around. This was one of those fun little projects I like to do to get my creative ideas flowing. If I find I'm stuck or need some inspiration the best thing to get me going is simply to start crafting. So I'll do a "fun" project to get me in the mood.
