The livings easy

Hey ya'll got some more GCD goodies to share. Hope you enjoy! :)I used the Fun house collection for this one.
I tucked a little lace tag (shabby chic crafts tag) for journaling on the side and used the beautiful sunny yellow cabochon to accent it.

My daughter Raven hanging out by the side of the pool. I used one of the shaped paper boarders from the Soul food collection to accent the bottom of the page. Laced a little bakers twine through it to finish it off. I love using doilies in my design. They give that little extra special something to your page and they are super inexpensive.

Loving the soul food collection by Melody Ross. I used it for this page of my daughter and friends feeding a horse. The whole experince was so lovely and feminin I wanted the papers to reflect that.

These papers truly do. The tag has a little glitter to it and the colors are beautiful. I also added a few fun house elements to the page. The clear boarder and the cabochon go so perfectly with Soul Food.
I used a chipboard book shape to create the background for my page. I love texture so I hand sewed the boarder.

Have a a lovely weekend!

love of mine

Father's day. Busy. Much to do. Appreciation. Love. Family. So many things on this day. I didn't spend it with my dad. Instead I spent it with one of THE BEST father's I have ever known. I myself think it's hard to be a dad. Woman carry the child with them for 9 months. It grows inside your tummy all the while you have bounded with this child. Men on the other hand only get to imagine how it feels to have this joyous life growin inside of you. This life depends only on you. Father's don't get to experience that until the child is here.

I appreciate when a man can see the life growing inside you as something beautiful. Something that you made together. Special. There will never be another like it. Unique. My husband is that man. He deserves all I can do. 18 years he has been with me and 16 of them with a child. He has managed to stay sane with a teenage daughter and all the while loved me unconditionally. Special.

I wanted to make him something special. Something I knew he would love. I took his two favorite flavors and made a cupcake just for him. I call it Ron's special cupcake.
It is a white cake with pistachio cream and white chocolate frosting. Rich. Sweet. Delish.
Of course living with a crafty wife I had to do it up right. I made a happy fathers day banner to put atop the cakes.

Made a fathers day card with some GCD The great outdoors collection. I love me some mustaches so any chance I can use them I am going to do so.

Of course it wouldn't be complete without a fathers day/mustache banner! I threw in some burlap stashes along with the gcd. Love. I may have to keep the banner up for a little while longer. *wink*

It wasn't all about the sweets and crafts at my house. Oh noooo. My husband requested juicy lucys with chili cheese fries. I have never made juicy lucys so of course I looked it up on the Internet. BTW I think I have mentioned before but I HATE touching raw meat. HATE! Anything tho for my sweet man.

{hubs photo with his cell. Was to busy to take a really good one *wink*}

I must admit it was worth the work. They tasted pretty good and my hubby and kids LOVED them. Kids all made handmade cards for him and we bought him a BBQ set that he totally thinks is wicked cool.

How was your fathers day? Make anything special? I would love to see!

P.S. I will post the cupcake recipe soon. Just have to tweak a few things and get it all in order. Leave me a comment if you would like the recipe!

I find it to be really unique

Hello friends. Today I am sharing a SB page I made using the fun house line. I love this line to bits. It is so fun and the colors are lovely. I managed to get my hands on one of the mustaches on a stick at a crop I went to a few months back. My friend and I couldn't resist playing. These pictures are what came of that.

I love the rub-ons! They go on paper like butter. I put some fun glasses on the pic of me and 2 mustache rub ons for my title and my journaling.

My background I created by cutting out the circle off the patterned paper and then cutting a smaller circle from the cardstock. I then machine sewed the circle to the CS. Super fun and simple and it adds lots of texture and dimension to your layouts.

I also made this super fun top hat. My cousin inspired me to make this one.

Used GCD Fun house line for this sweet little top hat. I think it would make a great photo booth prop don't you?

In other news...It is HOT! How bout in your neck of the woods?

Dont get so close to change my mind

Lots and lots to share. I am going to have to start posting every few days just to catch up! Let me start out by saying there is a new prompt up at Simply artistic. Here is the card I made for it.
As you can tell we are putting birds on our ATC's. I love birds. Make sure to come play along with us. If you do leave me a link on my blog and I will come leave you some love!

Also a new prompt up for The Creative Type.
Used the new Girls Paperie line for this one. I love buying things at the thrift store including clothes. Being a out of work mother of 4 it has become a regular thing...But I love it! So what is your style?

Went to Columbia state park this weekend with my mom, sister and daughter. We had a wonderful time even tho it rained all day Saturday. I know I may be a big nerd for loving to play dress up, but I totally do. I don't care. I accept it with no problem. Haha!

They had an totally wicked awesome cape I got to wear. It was wonderful! I wanted to take it home and wear it always. I know, nerd.

My fav part of course was the beautiful memories I created with my family. My daughter and I laughed so very hard Saturday night. My sides and cheeks hurt from the sillyness that in sued.

I have to give all the credit to my mom because without her it wouldn't have happened. I love her to bits and she is a pretty cool lady too.

I did however miss my husband to no end. My phone didn't work great so I wasn't able to text him all that much and I couldn't get online at all. It was crazy. Most of the time I really felt like I was in 1852! Ha! When I was able to get texts here and there he always made me feel so very special and loved and missed.

I came home to a clean and organized house. It was totally freakin awesome! He also went down to the flea market and bought me my most very fav snack.

♥Lemon salt pistachios.♥

To top it all off I got out of the shower to find these on my pillow.(the pretty flowers in my vase)

Yeah pretty wicked great right?

I had such a great weekend. I am truly blessed. Now off to catch up on deadlines and 21st century things.

On to the artsy stuff! I made this sweet little wreath for my front door out of yarn, lace, and cloth I had lying around. It needed a little something extra besides the rolled paper flowers. I decided to make a few tags to add to my wreath. The PSA stamps work wonderfully with the twine from The Twinery.

The birds are from
GCD studios paper. These tags would be lovely on a simple package wrapped in brown paper, don't you agree?

Make sure to head to the next stop and pls leave some love! I much appreciate any comments!! Thank you so much for joining me and have a wonderful day!
