CONGRATS banner!

Hi all, well it has been super busy here.  My kiddos are finally done with school and my son graduated 'moved up' to the middle school for 5th grade....seriously I can't believe I have a 5th grader!!!
We had a family graduation party for him and my parents and my DH and I bought him a blow up water fun!  My DD got an end of the school year gift, too, we couldn't leave her out, she  finally got a snow cone maker and it works like a dream!!!

So here is the banner that I made my son

I used my Gypsy and cricut E2.  I used Cricut Alphabet for the 'you did it' with shadow and the letters on the banner.  I used  Locker Talk for the award shaped and Everyday Pop Up Cards for the graduation caps.
I ruffled some white crepe paper around the circle and glittered the edges in black glitter.  I used primary colors for him as it was an elementary school graduation. 

Here is my handsome little 4th grader.....

Not the best pic of my son....but we interupted his fun on the water slide so that we could have cake!!! Lol!
We are so proud of the kids and stunned that the school year is over already!  Now, we look foward to a wonderful  and playful summer!!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Dad's day to all the Daddy's out there!!

I just wanted to jump on real quick before we go out to play on our new water slide and share this adorable project that the kids and I made for their Daddy!
A while ago my good friend Liz sent my kids this Dad clock from Kaiser Craft (thanks Liz) and I thought it would be perfect for the kids to alter for their Daddy!  We used the new Imaginisce line Happy Camper and we think it is adorable!   Daddy hasn't opened any of his gifts yet because he is working, but we are sure he will just love it!
 Here is a peek at the matching gift bag that we made using a kraft bag and Camping Critters papers and just added some green curling ribbon!
Supplies used:
naked DAD clock:  Kaiser Craft
Papers:  Imaginisce; Happy Camper collection:  Gone Fishing, Fireside Fun, Thermal Jammies, Don't Feed The Bears
Stickers:  Imaginisce Happy Camper canvas stickers, Imaginisce Roughing It stickers
Die Cuts:  Imaginisce camp critter
Other:  ink, twine

I have to say that the Imaginisce Happy Camper collection is absolutely adorable....I have made numerous projects with it already and I love the patterns...not to mention the names of the papers!!!  I also love the naked clock, decorating it was super easy and the kids had fun inking the cuts and adding stickers...thanks so much Liz!  I will be looking for more of these in the future...super quick and easy!

I hope you all have a great day with your families!!!

Thank You Imaginisce!!!!

Last month I won a set of the new Roly Rosie/ Posie flowers from the Imaginisce blog!  I was super excited to receive them, but not only did I get all the new flowers I also got a bunch of other flower packages!!!  So, thank you Imaginisce!!!!!    The first thing I did with the new Roly Rosies is make my DD a headband! Here is the big box of goodies that Imaginisce sent me:

I found the zebra stripe headband at Target for $1 and added some pink and text fabric flowers!  These are so much fun to make!  I added a little white bow and used my i rock to add some bling!
I had a ton of fun making these flowers and I can't wait to make some more!
Well, it doesn't end there......................................
I recently won the new Happy Camper line from Imaginisce on the Cricut Circle blog!  I was thrilled because my DH is taking my son camping this summer and we do a bunch of outdoor activities in the summer!  This is just such a cute line, love the papers...some are embossed and the cute stamps and all of the diecuts and stickers!
 Here is the whole Happy Camper set that Imaginisce kindly sent me:

Here is the Father's Day card that I made for my Dad with the set:  I used a sketch from Sassy Lil' Card Sketches!

Thinking of you!

Good afternoon!   It is a very hot day here today and it has been kids needed new shorts again...I just bought some last about a growth spurt!!!!  My DH took me shopping, we had lunch, got a call from the school nurse that son had an ear infection....went to Dr. and no ear infection.  Then we went strawberry picking, picked up cookies for son's school dance tonight, got son's haircut and I am getting ready to go to M's to teach a glitter class tonight!!!

So, with all that said....I want to share a card that I made...originally it was for a sketch challenge, but with being so busy I never made the deadline.  Oh well, maybe next time!
Here is the card:

I had so much fun putting this card together....after the card base was cut I added glitter using a fine tip glue to the edge and MS glitter.  I couldn't find any ribbon to match to make the bow, so I made a paper bow.  I think it came out so cute and is a great touch to the card. The sentiment is a bit hard to see because the paper is light, but it says 'thinking of you'.

Paper:  KandCo. Hopscotch
glitter: Martha Stewart
Cricut cartridges:  Birthday Bash (card base)  and Lacy Labels ( oval and sentiment)
Gypsy:  resized images

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I promise to have some more projects coming soon.  My son is graduating (moving up from 4th grade) and I made a banner and some goodies for the party that I will post soon!
Have a wonderful day and stay cool!!
