Commit2Paper June Kit! Time for summer.

American Crafts Spring and Summer line! Yummy, just LOVE those butterflies. And there are bunches of butterflies!

What did we ever do before double sided paper? But a few of these I'm not sure which I like better!!!

Thickers Vera font AND shapes in vinyl, I really like this color. Bazzill green paper flowers AND the green cardstock is Bazzill Bling!!!! Add pink rikrak ribbon. And a perfect whimsical touch Bazzill Musical Notes chipboard, these are super cool!

Yep, awesome kit AGAIN!!! How does Amy do it? Enjoy.

Challenge from Cuz!

Bobbie sent me this purple mesh and challenged me to use it in a layout! Then I got the email from Tara with our May scraplift challenge and it was purple too!!!!! What are the odds. So here we go. I think the pp and cs are from American Crafts, both ribbons are from ScrapGoods kits, letters for title are from the Glittered Chipboard set recently acquired from QVC.

I love these volunteers petunias, Sheldon's mom had two HUGE beds about 10 years ago. The beds have been gone for a long time but the volunteers still surprise us every year.

This is stupid

We don't have the money to put into the IMF!!!!

Geez, as bad as you people think it was with Bush, this is getting worse by the minute.

We have to get back to the constitution, shrink the government back down, and let states and local government have back the power that the American people give them.

Our Money

This is long, about two hours, but very very important for today:

Gertrude @ Christmas 2008

Whew! I was running REAL late, Amy gonna smack me.

Used the swiss dot cs here, love that stuff, going to make cards with the other sheet.

Star Kitty!

Our newest addition! Sheldon named him, don't blame me. We usually only see him at night so Sheldon picked Starlight. Star for short (duh).

Sure am getting a wide range with this kit! All from the kit except for the Cricut letters "STAR", with a little extra penwork.

Flophouse Kitties

I know, tacky title, oh well! It fits. If it's raining outside, they are all over the inside, if it's cold outside, again all over. But on a nice sunny day???? I chased them out after taking these pics.

AND it gave me another excuse to use Sheldon's Fuzzy Butt stamp!

Mother's Day!

Found some EK Success Paper Shaper punches at Big Lots for $2!!!! Used one on the matting for the pic.

This kit could go on forever, you can use papers as is they are so gorgeous or just keep adding embellies. I went pretty simple with this except for mixing Thicker fonts, just HAD to use the puffy ones with the polka dots with this paper.

We wanted to grab a quick meal before the movie, but every parking lot was full, then I thought, I bet Souper Salad isn't! Sure enough, we were two of six people there and it was great! Then off to see the new Star Trek movie.

Want One?

Okay so I ran out of e's and ?'s in this font, got creative!!! Which is quite amazing seeing how I've been totally devoid of any scrapping mojo for WEEKS! So maybe now I can move on and get some more scrapping done.

My sweetie Caroline looks just like she is saying want one?

Commit2Paper May09 kit, added my own Thickers, primas.

Okay I admit it, we play the lottery a little. Nothing major, just once or twice a week. And Sheldon likes to get the scratch tickets, especially Lucky 7's, where you have to get three 7's in a row to win.

So the other day he's in the store getting a few grocery items, looks over at the scratch tickets and thinks to himself "should I get some Lucky 7's? Nah, later maybe."

So he turns to the casher for his total on groceries. She says "That'll be $7.77 sir.".
