....Miss Elizabeth lost her first tooth! This has been a long time in coming and she was quite sure that everyone in her class had lost a tooth BUT HER! Finally, she has joined the ranks of the kids with gap-toothed grins!

I was able to use more goodies from the
I am a Scrapaholic November Kit to make this Layout and I love how it came out. Most of the paper is from the Bo Bunny Kitchen Spice collection.

Thanks again to Lynn and the girls at IAAS for inviting me to be this month's visiting therapist! If joining a Kit Club is on your Christmas list, or if you want to just buy one kit, I insist that you check out Lynn's kits! They are absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!

Have a great day!!

I can't believe it's November 15th!!!

Where did November go? Then again, I am not sure where the months went starting in about July! But, here we are at November 15th and I get to share what I have been working on over at A Walk Down Memory Lane!

I was so excited that I got to work with this GORGEOUS Bo Bunny Flutter Butter! It took me a long time to cut into it because it is so darn pretty, but I am really glad that I did!
And this LO was done with this month's featured manufacturer: PINK PAISLEE! I loved working with this Spring Fling line and have used darn near every scrap of it! I especially loved the sheet of die cuts where the large bracket frame came from!
The FIRST Missing Tooth:This card also shows some more Spring Fling paper and die-cuts and these super cute Prima Felt flowers! Love 'em!!

Accordion Card & A Color Challenge

Hi, All!! Friday at A Walk Down Memory Lane means a new challenge to do (and another chance to win some scrappy goodies)!! This week is a color challenge. Check out the AWDML DT Blog for all of the details of the challenge.

As an example for the color challenge, I made this Accordion Fold Card that was inspired by one I found one day while surfing the internet looking for fun ideas. I can't remember where I saw it, but the design idea definitely stuck with me! I used the Dream Street Sam Papers. And, I made a quick and easy tutorial on how to make this card. Just click HERE to see it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Make it a GREAT day!

Yes!! I AM a Scrapaholic, but it's also the name of a wonderful kit club! And, I was asked to be the November "Visiting Therapist." The kit is gorgeous and features Bo Bunny's Kitchen Spice paper and Cosmo Cricket's Nutmeg paper. And, the embellisments are gorgeous, too-- lots of Maya Road goodies!!

In this layout I used the kit and my daughter's 2nd grade school photos. I used one of the Maya Road journaling cards to mat the wallet sized photo and cut the flowers out of one of the papers to create the embellie cluster. To create the title, I inked the chipboard letters from the kit and heat embossed them with clear powder. I also added some Stickles!
I want to thank Lynn at IAAS for this opportunity! And, I would encourage any scrapper to look into her kits! They are a great value, especially if you do a subscription!! You can check them out on her homepage--> HERE

Happy November 1st!!!

The month of November brings PINK PAISLEE as the Featured Manufacturer at A Walk Down Memory Lane! I chose to use their "Spring Fling" line and found that it is very easy to work with! The colors are wonderful and the patterns were really fun!

Here is my Flirty Fella on the day of his birthday party! I was inspired to make the tree by a card tutorial that my friend
Scarlett Salomone did. Isn't it cute?! And, the sketch, by the lovely Lucy Chesna is the November 1st sketch at MY SKETCH WORLD!!
Ahhh...my girls!! This is getting to be a famous photo of Lucy, Suzann and I during our all too short visit this summer. We had an absolute blast and I can't wait to do it again! I think that this gorgeous paper, and the sketch by Becky Fleck did the photo justice. :)

This cute and simple card was made with
Pink Paislee's Spring Fling line and a set of Just Rite Stamps. These stamps are super cute and I am having a great time learning to use them!
This card is for all of you that actually visit my blog, and especially those of you that leave comments! Thanks so much for letting me share my work with you!

Be sure to stop by the AWDML DT BLOG today for the full reveal from the Design Team, and EVERY DAY for fun challenges and tutorials (there will even be a prize every month!!)
I hope that November brings you lots of things to be thankful for! Thanks for stopping by!!
