Good luck everyone! Now let's get started...
You should have come from Karen's Blog and after your visit, you should go to Julie's Blog but, you get lost, just be sure to come right back to our BEST CREATION BLOG page!

Since it's all about stitching today, I wanted to share with you the back to school cards I made for my kids.  Unfortuntely, their first day of school is also MY first day of school with students, so I'm not usually there to put them on the bus and smother them in hugs and kisses.  So, I started making them cards a few years ago that my husband gives them at the bus stop so they know that they are in my heart, even though I'm not standing there with them.

On Elizabeth's card, I simply used some lime green zig zag stitching to add some dimension and interest to the lime green strip of paper.

And, on Colby's card, I used the stitching to create a border around the patterned paper (to take the place of matting) and also to make some exhaust coming from the bus!

I hope you enjoyed these cards made with Best Creation's Back 2 School collection!  Now, hop on over to JULIE's BLOG for your next stop...of and just in case you'd like to win the Hello Fall Collection, one of your secret words is PUMPKIN!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Soccer Camp!

My kids LOVED soccer camp this year!  It's a whole week of skills and drills and they smile (and sweat) through every minute of it.  And, the Title Sports collection from Scrappin' Sports & More was released at the PERFECT time to scrap this fun summer memory!

One of my favorite parts of this line is the SUPER fun titles!  I love to cut them out and pop them up!  Don't you LOVe the soccer letters?!  So, so cute!  I used a fun stamp set to add the soccer balls and cleats to the project. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  My mojo has made a BIG return and I'll have lots of new projects to share soon!  Have a GREAT day!

Fun with Scraps!

It's been a while since I shared anything here!  Life has been crazy-- I've painted my house (almost done!), ushered in my daughter's 9th year and even welcomed a new furry baby into the family!  Now that things are slowing down (hopefully!) I'll be able to share more fun things with you!

I played with a few scraps from my Scrappin' Sports & More's Title Sports papers and I created this fun bookmark for my daughter!  It's funny how a few scraps of paper can make a kiddo so happy!  The only one not please was my son, so  I had to make another one!  LOL!

I hope you all are having a fabulous August and that it doesn't go by too fast!  Thanks for stopping by today!
