First time at the Beach!!!

Hi everyone! Happy Memorial Day to you!!! I hope everyone is having a good,but safe holiday. I am still enjoying my vacation here in Myrtle Beach S.C.. There were so many things to do here in this city. I had an awesome time minus the Banana Boat ride i took on the Atlantic Ocean. WoW! Talk about salty water. LOL. That ride sure was an expereince for me. Well here is a video i took right when we got to Mrytle Beach on Friday. Let me warn you that this was my first time seeing/being on a beach in mylife. Be prepared for the WOWS!!!!!!!!!

Well Needed Vacation!!!!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday. I know i am. Earlier this week I was suprised by my boo that he was taking me to the beach for some much needed vacation time. How thrilled was I. OMG!!!! Was all I could say. Why? Because I have never ever in my whole entire life been to a beach before. I mean it was always on my list of things to do, but I never got around to doing it. So here I am in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. What can I say? I haven't been here long and of course my first stop was to get a look at this beach. OMG!! I was speechless. I felt like a little kid again all giggle inside :~))

Most people may not have been as thrilled, but boy was I. I couldn't wait to get my feet in the water and I cannot even swim. What sense does that make? It was getting late when we arrived, so we did not stay long. However, we will be making another stop at the beach tomorrow. This time I will really get to play and relax. Here are a few quick pictures I was able to take so far. Now all I need is some beach theme or travel them scrap paper so I can make some scrapbook pages of all the pictures I am going to take. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Simple Card!!!!!

Here's a quick and simple card i created the other day using a new paper stack collection by DCWV called The Natural Stack. For this card i also used my Martha Stewart pop-up water lilly punch. I just cut different sizes of some scrap paper i had left hanging around and for my cardstock i just used a golden brown that i got from a stack at Walmart. Can you believe that????? It actually turned out better than i had expected it to.

Thanks for looking!!!!!!!!!!!!!


House Mini

Hello everyone. I just wanted to share a mini that i have recently completed for a swap im doing with a lovely lady i have met on youtube. I must say that this is my first mini album swap. We decided to use our chipboard mini albums that we purchased from Micheal's, different cuts using our cricut, and whatever paper collection we wanted. For this album, i've chosen to use the house chipboard mini. This is my fourth mini album i have done so far. I must admit that it is a lot of fun. Okay, so here is what i used. For my paper collection i decided to use the DCWV Songbird paper stack. My swap buddy requested a birdcage from my sernade cartridge as well as cuts from Doodlecharms, Forever Young, and Graphically Speaking cartridges. To keep the theme of this mini i tried to incorporate what i could. I just hope she likes it. I also used brown lace trim and pearl lace trim. To acheive the orange, blue, and green lace colors i just sprayed my pearl lace with patina, golden terracotta, and lime twist glimmermist. I also sprayed the entire album with iridesent gold glimmer mist to give the pages a little shimmer affect. I also used diffrent die-cuts using some sizzix dies and i added a few prima flowers to the frame on the cover. Overall i think this album turned out pretty good. I'm sure i will be doing this again....................
