PL LO's 3 & 4

Sir Cuteness and his special night was SO much fun!!!
I am so proud of this little guy.
He really did Preschool like a boss.

He was SO loved by all of his teachers.
To hear him saying his memory verses 
and singing his songs,
my heart melted a little I tell you.

So for these two pages, 
the pics are very similar to the two
previous pages, 
but I used a completely different color scheme.
Lots of brights.


Hashtag elements are so fun!!
And look at this Allison Kreft card.....
I love it SO SO much!!

let summer begin!

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a Blessed and Beautiful,

June Kit ~~ PL LO 1 & 2

And our little man went and graduated Preschool!!  
It was SO fun!!!
He had such a GREAT year.
Such a smart little fella.

This months kit is just perfect for 
some Preschool Grad LO's

I mean seriously.....
WOW indeed =)


Oh Sir Cuteness.....
I love EVERYTHING about you!

Receiving his diploma.
Oh the joy of this child!
I love those Glitz Finley letter stickers
in my kit.

This is the page opposite the above loveliness.
Lovely black and teal accents.....

This little girl and Sir Cuteness had quite
the friendship this year.  
At first, they fought like cats and dogs,
and then by the end of the year
they were crushies =)

I am SO glad to be back to making LO's again.
I embossed this little lovely.
(MME Stamp)

So there we have it.
The first 2 PL LO's using my June Kit.

CKC June Kit ~~ I'm Back =)

Well Happy June!!!
I have been away from CKC for several months,
but I am SO happy to be back this month.
The kits are Amazing this month!!  

They are:

I went with Scrapbook Circle.
I loved the black accents and the bold colors.

Here are my papers.
Yes there is a plethora for goodness in here.
A lot of PL cards, since that is the bulk of my
scrapbooking these days.

I decided to add this bold little book of goodness.
I have had it for ever so long.....
too long, 
and it needs a home on some pages,
or needs a new home,
if ya get my drift =)

I threw in some fun summer cut outs,
and of course, some Maggie (BFF) lovelies =) 

Here are my stickers and such.
Yep there is some Glitz, MME, Amy Tan, Thickers
and other such fun.

And then this bad boy is FILLED
with all kinds of embellies.
Oh yes, this is gonna be one fun month of scrappy goodness!!

MME 6x6 pad.
Perfect for PL.

 So there you have it.
My June Kit.
Can't wait to start getting to work.
It's so good to be back!

@ 9 Months.....

Hi there sweet thangs!!!
I hope you are having a FABULOUS

Well this is week 2 of SSS
Monday Challenges for me.

This one was a little bit more of a 
challenge for me.
I find letter challenges 
a little tough,
only because I always
want the unique factor 
to find its way into my pages,
and with letter challenges 
I always seem to gravitate
toward the obvious.
Yes I am cool like that.

So I pulled out my CKC January kit
for inspiration 
and there was the "a"
i needed in the form of a big ole

This is my beautiful stepson's wife
pregnant with precious Ara
born January 16th, 2014.
Oh sweet mercy.....

Heidi Swapp's lovely,
(delicious really)

And my "a".
Yep a big ole @ sign.

Really didn't know what I was gonna 
do with said 
big ole @ sign,
but it is 
in this LO.

The lovely Alison Kreft camera.
Maggie hearts
Heidi Color Shine.

Enamel dots.

Chipboard photo corners.
Yes please.

beautiful baby belly.
Check, Check & Check.

Oh yes,
this came together 
quite nicely.
For this girl,
and her girl.

Thanks for stopping by,
and do please check out 
Monday Challenge.
It is the bomb diggity!

CKC Members Blog Hop

Welcome y'all!!!
If you are hopping along then you have come here
from the lovely Elaine.

But if not, 
please go to the CKC to start
and see all the wonderful work
you've missed.

The CKC posts 3 challenges through the 
and we choose which one we want
to do.  
I chose the stamp on PP challenge.

I am not really a stamper.
I own stamps
and stamp pads.
But I am not really a stamper.
So this was a challenge for me,
because I really don't stamp on LO's much.


I found these boys hanging out.....
get it....
hanging out,
he's on a tree.
Hahahaha.....I crack me up.....

I grabbed the blue box of CKC January Kit goodness
and got to work.

These clouds are from an Amy Tan
paper line.
I had a scrap of it and thought this would look SO cute.
One of the clouds had a little heart on it,
so I decided they all needed hearts.
So I went to work drawing each cloud its own heart.

And then I stamped.
This is a Gossamer Blue Stamp I believe,
and it is in keeping with my heart theme
I had going.
So I stamped it using Heidi Swapps new stamps,
and can I just say.....
But I heard it is a limited time only thing.
I hope that is wrong,
or that their so popular that she continues
making it.
It is archival,

A little sparkling Thicker title.....

Some little birdies,
some more stamping,
tiny staple,
And a cute boy.

I have been wondering what in the wide world
I was gonna do with this cute little deer.
Well, here where we hike,
you can almost pet the deer,
they get so close to you.
So I thought it was loosely related.
That's all the reason I need.

This hello was a speech bubble from Simple Stories
the Vintage line from last year,
but the little doo-dad that makes this a speech
bubble just looked weird with no actual speech
going along with it,
so I just cut it off.
Now see you wouldn't have even known huh?
Yep, getting the most out of my supplies people.
The most!
Hello mushrooms.

More cute birdies.....
and twine.....
and tiny staple.....

And voila!
I stamped,
I cut,
I oooed
I called 'er done.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Now hop on over to the lovely
and see what she's got for you.

And I hope you have a
Blessed and Beautiful,

It's the Simple Things

I am having so much fun using up my
January CKC kit.
I love repeating items
like these tags 
and words.
vellum right now.

So for this LO
I have THE cutest of subject matters,
Yes, Sir Cuteness himself.

As I am looking at this,
I am realizing there is no journaling
on this page.
Sometimes it is just fine,
but I have a story to tell with this one,
so I will get that on there somewhere.
But this was us taking advantage of 
the Ding-Ding man.
(What we call the ice cream truck =)

He came around well after summer
on a nice warm day,
and Sir Cuteness heard him
and came RUNNING in 
and telling me to grab my money =)
I love him so!

They were out of Ninja Turtles,
so he had to get Spider Man.
He was just fine with that =)

It is indeed the simple things.

 I LOVE mixing my title.
Here you have 2 different yellow Thickers,
and then some tiny letters from....
yeah, I don't remember,
but I love them.

This picture is a little dark,
but I'm playing round with picture taking
and lighting.
I really wanted y'all to see
my white Heidi Swapp Color Shine
on this vellum.
It is scrummy y'all.
What is scummy you ask?
Well yummy and scrumptious,
of course.

Sir Cuteness,
you my darling child,
are my FAVE boy!! 

I have started really using my stash lately.
I have so many lovely things 
that just wasn't getting used,
like the sheet of paper that all these words came on.
I started cutting them out and 
On a page.
Novelist of ideas =)

And this is just a close up of our darling Sir Cuteness.
You are welcome!

I hope y'all are using up those kits.

Thank you for your kindness and support.
I hope you have a 
Blessed and Beautiful,
Krafty, Kind of Day ~~
