She’s Crafty

It has been quite a while since I shared layouts on my blog! So here goes….

A deer and a camel that I took photos of on the safari ride we went on near our home town. This Summer we're having more of a staycation to save more $ for Disney next year!

Supplies: Paislee Press Est Alpha, Bella Gypsy Pasghetti Alpha (recolored), Merkeley Designs Stencil It Alpha, Deca Designs Perfect Garden Mini Kit, and Typewriter font.


Journaling: Jordan, When you have a Daddy who is a MAJOR NASCAR fan, you're bound to have Hot Wheels whether you're a girl or not. You decided to put yours to good use and you chewed on them when you were teething. I was constantly pulling them out of your mouth, but you thought they were yummy.

Supplies: Christina Renee Flocked Alpha, Tracy Ann Digital Art Zoom Collection (on Etsy), 1/2 of Manda Girl's two page template number 54, and EHI_SS_Scratched Overlay.


Journaling: Seeing my child graduate from Kindergarten is pure bliss. I am so very proud. She is amazing.
(A little back story... Jordan has cerebral palsy and has overcome a LOT to get through Kindy. We are so amazed by her each and every day. She's our little miracle.)

Supplies: I used Sue Cummings' Week 20 from the 52 Inspirations Subscription available at Oscraps.


Journaling: Maw Maw Florence sewed these outfits for her kids. 1962

I used my May Scrapbook Deals 4 You kit on this one. It features October Afternoon Thrift Shop Papers. This layout was semi-inspired by Piradee Talvanna's Together layout on page 41 of Creating Keepsakes May/June 2010 issue.
Other supplies: Pink Thickers, October Afternoon Thrift Shop Stickers and Alpha, and a Prima Flower.


I've been wanting to journal about my family's traditions and cooking. So when I saw this May 2010 Page Maps sketch with room for a ton of journaling, I decided it would work!

I used my May Scrapbook Deals 4 You kit on this one. It features October Afternoon Thrift Shop papers and embellies.

In other news (not scrappy related), Ronnie brought home a new car last night. It’s a Mocha colored 2010 Chevy Malibu. When I asked him why he bought a brown car with a two toned (gorgeous) cashmere and cocoa interior. He said, “Well, it reminded me of coffee.” “I know how much you love coffee, so I figured you’d love it.” “Plus, it matches the new living room curtains you’re obsessed with, so I figured it was a safe bet.” He’s too right! I love it. LOL

He will be driving it to work because it gets WAY better gas mileage than the huge truck he traded in for it, but that baby is mine on the weekends! He says it’s my car, he’s just borrowing it. What a guy! LOL


I didn’t get any photos of it yet because it was dark by the time he got home. These are from the Chevy dealer where he bought it.


Oh and it already has a name. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that my six year old names everything. Our new Malibu’s name is Bu. LOL She’s such a mess. Brandon is not thrilled with Bu at all. When Ronnie drove up, he started crying. He said, “Daddy, Where’s your cruck?” (Truck) I’m going to take Brandon in the car tonight and try to get him to like it. I felt bad, he was heartbroken. Jordan rode with me last night and we played with the satellite radio, and OnStar. I’m thrilled that they have a feature that will let me in if (okay WHEN) I lock myself out of it.

Alright enough rambling from me! Until next time…

"Bu" -- LOL Jordan!!

Ahhh haha it wasn't long after we got the Yukon that I locked myself out of it. Apparently, even if you leave your keys a little bit left in the ignition, the doors lock! My cell, my purse, everything was left in there. Thank goodness I was only at the north shop (where hubby works), so I could make use of someone elses' cell to call OnStar! Now I'm paranoid. The keys will never be left in the Yukon for any reason. They are coming with me!
