Easel Card from Swap

This is a beautiful easel card I received by participating in a card swap.  I Love It!  The card was made by SassyGirlMN (her Ustream name.)  I'm sorry I don't know her real name.  I show and tell more about the card on my YouTube Channel.  Just click on the YouTube link on the left side of this blog page.  The card swap was from

My First Stitches...with a Sewing Machine

I've been dying to try out my new sewing machine that Troy bought for me for Christmas.  Here is a picture of my first stitches.  I have never sewn with a machine before so it was a lot of fun learning how to thread the bobbin and needle....NOT!  My plan is to do fun stitching on scrapbook pages.  This could be addicting!  :)

Two Page Purple Layout

Here is a two page layout I finished recently using House of 3 paper and a couple of star buttons.  The purple cardstock is K&Company.  I printed the House of 3 paper out at home and my ink was running low so the colors are off.  I was disappointed at first but I used what printed and just picked cardstock to match.  I call it the Purple Layout.  And of course Jack is in every picture.  The first page is about a summer day Jack spent fishing with Troy.  The second page Jack is wearing a pair of my high heels paired with his camo baseball hat.

Merry Christmas to Me!

This is the first post of my scrapbooking blog.  I had a personal/family blog in the recent past but for some reason I can no longer sign into the account.  I'm taking it as a sign to start this new blog and have it solely for scrapbooking and crafting purposes.  I am super excited.  Here is a picture of the wreath I made for the holidays.  It's the first wreath I made.  It was actually a lot easier to make than I thought.
I'm not sure if I will be posting anything tomorrow, but will definitely post something on Sunday the 26th.  Have a fun and safe Holiday!
