Online Croppin'!

That's what I have been doing all weekend! I have never really participated in an online crop before but when CocoaDaisy was doing one and it was being organized by my fellow taG team girl, Sue, I knew I had to make the time! I have had a blast! The only bad thing is that there is so much going on, on the message boards that I can't seem to tear myself away to get any scrapping actually done! I have managed to get a few things done along with playing some fun games!

This is for one of their Daily Prompts...this was use pp and rub-ons on a card.

Then this is from a sketch by Sue.
And finally I participated in a 1 hour layout challenge...and actually finished it! Wasn't sure if I would be able to but I pulled it off! For this we had to use the CocoaDaisy, red, orange, brown and a little green and have "Heart" in the title. And of course finish in an hour!
Now I've got to run...There is a chat with Ali Edwards on the mb in 5 minutes! And at 6:00 tonight my Blazers play the Rockets! Go Blazers!

December Daily Album

That's right...DECEMBER! I realize it is April! I had the best of intentions in November when I made the entire Dec Daily album and in December when I took pictures every day and even jotted down some journaling. But my hang up on this was the printing the pictures. Thought it would be easy to do at home but it was too time-consuming for the quality that I got. So I FINALLY sent the pictures to get printed and on a scrapping retreat this weekend made some real progress! There are a few days missing because I missed printing a few pictures. And there are some places I might go back and add a few things (like the word "the" in Frosty the Snowman...oops!) since I didn't have all my supplies but I figured I'd post it now or I might not ever get to it!

Basic Grey Month

For is always Basic Grey month! Seems I am always buying some or using some on my layouts or projects! But this month they are the featured manufacturer at A Walk Down Memory Lane, which means ALL Basic Grey is on sale! It also means that I "had" to do some projects with some BG this month! Not such a chore when it is my fave! LOL! Here are a few I came up with using 3 different lines.

This uses the Ambrosia line.
The Sultry line...did you know they now make this in fabric?!?!?
And an oldie but a goodie: Sugared!

Happy Easter!

Thought I'd do an early Easter post as I have time right now and am not sure if I will again before Easter! I made these cute little chocolate bunnies using Hershey Nuggets, the patterned paper from the April AWDML Kit, and a little bunny head stamp that my friend Amanda let me use! She also had a tail stamp but the thought of cutting out so many little tails was not my idea of fun! So we ran over to JoAnn's and bought some bunny tails! :) Isaac had a great time putting these bunnies together for his teachers and classmates!

April Fool's Day...Preschool Style!

I just thought this was the cutest thing! Today for snack, Miss Katie told the kids they were going to have brownies. Then she proceeded to hand out these large "brown e's"! She also put a drop of food coloring in the bottom of their cups without them knowing so that when they poured their milk, it turned color! Isaac thought this was about the best holiday ever! :)And here are the projects I made with the AWDML April kit: "Shrooms and Buds". The little buckets are the containers from American Craft felt flowers!
