Yesterday on Momo's Fav Friday I saw an explosion box by Canadian Nickel Scrap'n. I loved it. My mom's 89th birthday is Wednesday so she is either getting this one then or on Mother's Day. I finally got to use this really pretty Amy Butler paper pack from K&company. I also got to use some of the really pretty ribbon and a flower from Christina's give-a-way that I won.
All I can say is wow look at all these goodies. It was like Christmas morning today when the mail came. Everything was wrapped up in tissue paper making the experience that much more fun. Here is the amazing thing. With all the goodies that we all accumulate in papercrafting I do not own any of these things. Yahoo! I have to say that I ordered from custom crops on the 16th and ebay on the 17th and none of those things are here yet. Christina you are the best!

It is an absolutely beautiful spring day here in South Jersey. So what do I do? Scrapbook our last snow day pictures. HAHAHA. I had to prop the page outside when taking the picture so you could see the embossing. I used the solutions When Its Cold Outside to cut the snowflakes, some glitter shaped brads that I do not know who made, a making memories punch, the cuddlebug snowflakes embossing folder and stickles. I added the clear stickles to the ends of the snowflakes and here and there on the embossing around the pictures to give it some bling! The second page of the layout isn't quite finished yet so that will come late.

I have recently had the misfortune or fortune depending upon your perspective the need to send out a lot of thank you cards therefore depleting a lot of my arsenal. So this morning I created this simple thank you card using the gypsy to size the layers and lay them out so that I could actually cut enough layers to make 2 cards at one time.

My daughters best friend before birth (her mom was my teaching assistant when we were both expecting) is such a sweet girl. Spent the day with her. She drove me to my daughters college about an hour and a half away so I could attend her nursing honor society induction.. Any how her birthday is this Friday and after spending most of the day with her I was inspired to make a card for her when I got home even though I am tired out. Isn't funny that when you get a card idea in your head you just can't settle until you make it? The dark blue on the present base is a metallic that really didn't photograph well.

Here are a few photos of a chipboard book for a co-worker who is going to have her first grandson in June. She is already a grandmother of two girls who call her nanny. When I put the album together I have blue and brown ribble to attach to the ring with small plastic colored saftey pins.
Well, the stickles is still drying on the chipboard book so here is a thank you card I made today. Picture is a little blurry cause I took it with my iphone sorry and the ribbon is not crooked it is just not laying completely flat. I made the base from the shadow tag feature on christmas cheer and merged them together on the gypsy. The layers were just sized down using original shadow tag shape feature. Paper used was papertrey ink base and DCMV citrus. I think I should call it a crafting day since I am going on an outing tomorrow and need to not wear myself out. My daughters best friend is driving me to her college so I can see my daughter get inducted into the nursing honor society.

I helped my daughter make her scrapbook page for the sorority scrapbook album. She loves pink and pocketbooks so I finally got to use my Forever Young cartridge. I bought it with her in mind. It isn't the best image but you still get the idea from the picture.
