Oooh Little Girls

Everyone who knows me, understands I live in a male dominated house...even down to the dog and I have my suspicions about the fish! So I don't have the luxury or thrill of shopping for all the little girlie scrapbook goodies. When a close friend of ours recently had a little girl that gave me all the ammunition I needed as well as excuses to by everything that glitters! and boy did I...from papers to embellies I got it all. I have also loved the color blue since I could talk and absolutely hated anything pink...until now! There is pink everywhere...and...I like it! I decided to post one of the pages I did for her scrapbook and will post others later but wanted to share the fun I am having doing this scrapbook.
Cute Embellie I found at Archivers

Pearls I picked up from some place I don't even remember! 

I love love love the white flourish paper and the letters are from the cricut cartridge Hello Kitty

It's pink, It glitters, and is shiny all over, yay for little girls! and yay for my oldest son who volunteered to hold the page up!
 As  I mentioned a few posts back I am working on a set of board books for our little princess and mind you I started this process by just doing the board books and a flower chipboard album...my has it grown...anyway I will post pics of these super cute board books once they are complete but thought I would offer a preview of what's to come.

Happy Scrapping and have a creative week!

I did it! My First Card!!!

After reading all the blogs and getting much inspiration I made my first card, I gave it a go! Oh boy, it was fun but I have to get this glue thing down so that it doesn't muck up (yes I meant to say MMMUCK) my card! LOL!

This is the front of the card

and the inside with I did go back and use a glue eraser to clean it up afterwards and am much happier!

The cardstock and paper are all from Basic Grey: Wander
I used the Martha Stewart scallop punch (love it!!!)
and cut the letters from the CM Cricut Cartridge: Cheerful Seasons, which is a great cartridge, it has tons of images and fonts!

still to come are my little story books....adding finishing touches!

Happy Scrapping!

Friday! Friday! Friday!

I love the weekends, a great time to spend with my family....the smell of homemade pancakes on Saturday mornings is just addictive! I've had a very slow craft week, I think I did one thing! I plan on cropping on Sunday with a girlfriend which should be super fun, and maybe I can catch up on some projects. I am still working on my little storybooks which are going to be soo cute, can't wait to post pictures...you are so going to love them, I promise!  Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!
