I added some embossing and smootch around the leaves. I had fun using is like nail polish for! I used some prima flowers and some bling and buttons, some glitter photo corners and my favorite item.....Martha Stewart fringe mimic the grass skirt. My stamped image is the liscence plate with the title. I also used some recollections bling! I just think it is a simple fun LO!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I hope you all had a beautiful day!!
I woke up to a beautiful collage that my kids made and a beautiful red rose!! My kids got some sweet treats...they were super excited!!
We had a wonderful day and the best part was that we were all together! We went ice skating and then my parents took us to our favorite restaurant for dinner!

P.S. Yes, my son is wearing purple snow pants...hee hee!! It was either that or freeze, he is such a good sport! He was so cute out on the ice and he did really well!

Valentine's Day Treats!

Here are some treats that I made for Valentine's Day!

I made these chocolate vases (I was inspired by a KrisK from the cricut message board). I made a cardboard box with a few scores and some helmars glue. I used my atg adhesive to adhere the the Hershey bars. I put a chunk of floral foam and some paper shreds in. The kids made some large tissue paper flowers. We made these for the kids teachers and they just loved them. We also made some for family....a big hit! What a cute way to give chocolate and flowers!!!

I made some chocolate heart lollipops for my daughter's Kindergarten class and some chocolate pretzels for my son's 3rd grade class!

I made some heart shaped brownies and decorated some with pink frosting and some sugar candies....they were the hit of her class party and Samantha was so cute passing them out to her friends!

We had so much fun making all of these special treats!

Criss Cross Cards!

Here are a few criss cross cards that I made using my scraps from the Jan. card kit! These were super simple, quick and fun to make. I got the directions at!

Finally Finished.....

This is a Lo that I just finished up for a challenge at We had to do a LO on something that we want to focus on in 2010! I decided to do a LO with no pics, on healthy eating!
Inside the large folder are recipes that I printed out! The envies, folders, and arrows are from an old CK kit. I used some old crepe paper (streamers) and pleated it...I love how simple it was to work with and adds a great effect! I cut the recipe card, the fruit and the strainer with cricut From My Kitchen!

I made this beautiful easel card for a challege at TS. Ifound the directions here at splitcoaststampers This was so fun and easy to put together! I made the butterflies with a MS punch, added pop dots and folded up the wings a bit, I added some teeny tiny pearls with the help of my Helmar 450 glue! I stamped the image of the dress form and added a flower folded in half for the skirt!
