Snow White Tilda and the cricut

This layout was so much fun and I love the way it turned out. I used a couple of different carts on it and even a Magnolia stamp, Tilda with apple.

Tilda with apple is colored with my copics and I even inked her a little bit around the edges with my cat eye inks. I just love the way she turned out!

The apple journaling spot is cut from Happily Ever After at 4". I inked it up with my cat eye inks.
The apple basket is also cut from HEA. I used ink and stickles to finish it off. 

The corner embellishments are cut from Storybook and then I glittered them as well. Using all the glitter tied it in so well to the designs on the paper. It just made it all come together so well.

And a final look at each page. Be sure to click on the pictures to see them up close. I just love all the glitter on the page.
The picture of Dopey waving by at the end is my favorite part of the whole ride!!

Have a blessed day and I hope you enjoyed the layout today!

Wings of Friendship

This stamp set was a hostess set I got last year called Wings of Friendship from SU. I used my SU markers to color the stamp and then stamped it on white cardstock. All the other cardstock is from my stash. I cut the circles with my cricut and the Graphically Speaking Cartridge. There are circle cuts on lots of cartridges though. It's so great to be able to do graduated sizes of circles and scalloped circles. Now that I'm thinking about it I wished I'd done the blue circle a scalloped circle. Oh well I can make a few more. LOL

I used a sketch from the Card Scraps Blog Challenge for this month.  You should check it out and enter. Be sure to browse around the blog. There are lots of great projects to see!

I hope you enjoy and have a blessed day!

The Lion King

I took my son to see the Lion King for graduation and finally got the pictures scrapped. There's not a lot of pictures to scrap because photography is not allowed but we did snap a photo of the theatre before it started and of us together in our seats. We went to dinner before hand and I couldn't help having a little fun when I noticed the light above his head made a perfect halo. LOL He is my lil angel from heaven!! The theatre crash test dummy mask was just too funny. We had to get a pic of it too. We had a fabulous time and I can't wait to go to an actual Broadway play in New York but this was a night I will never forget!

I used  a free dingbat font from the internet to cut all the images and the title. The sun doesn't really show up in the pic as well as real life. I thought it was a great touch.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I love to hear your comments

Organizing Shelf for my Inks

First I have to apologize for neglecting my blog lately. I really thought I would have tons of time this summer with both kids working but they still seem to rule most of my days. LOL I wouldn't have it any other way though. I love my kiddos and miss them terribly. My sister also found out she has advanced stages of colon cancer. She's in the hospital and my mom has been staying with her. I really worry about my mom because she's diabetic and just had several surgeries to open blockage to her heart. They're an hour away but I try to take dinner to my mom and make sure she's taking care of herself. Well enough about me let's get on to the project for today!
I saw this shelf made out of foam board a while back and thought it was the coolest thing. Well I finally picked up some foam board and tried it. I love it! It works fabulous for all my inks including my copic markers. It is a lil shallow for the markers so I'm going to make a modified version to sit along side it for all my markers. Ok, I don't have all that many now but give me time. LOL

I have my SU pads on the far right and then my Memento and finally my Distress inks. The first I put slanted shelves in to hold my Copics and I have my versamark in the bottom right corner. My cat eye inks are on top along with some stickles and other tools I use often. This whole project cost me $2, can you believe it?! My husband was really skeptical at first because of it being foam board but it really is quite sturdy and plenty durable for inks. Now that he's seen it all set up he thinks I'm a genius for doing it for $2. LOL

The website that I got the pattern from is
She has done a lot of work and put an entire pattern together for it. Be sure to thank her if you download and use her pattern. She rocks!!

And if you try it be sure to let me know. I would love to see it!
