Sweet Sweet Sunday...

Sunday's should be such a calm, relaxing day, it is so sad that Monday is the follow up and makes me dread it all day Sunday... Therefore, no one should have to work Monday's so we can better enjoy Sunday :o)
I'm loving playing along with Die Cuts R Us, especially since today's challenge was to use left over Valentine's goodies! Boy - do I have enough of those left! So, here you go! The paper - yeah, that's pretty lovey dovey, but I just added a layer with some stamped {Ippity} on there and you have it! On the inside, I also added a Bible Verse sentiment from this same set. Speaking of which, this set and MORE are available at {Ippity} Kisses - with the profits going to the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life! If you don't have any {ippity} chick, please consider me and the Relay :o)
I'm hoping to get a dinner out of my hubby today since my Valentine's present has still not made it through the mail LOL - We'll have to wait and see I guess!

God Bless You,

Snow Week...

Yes, it's true! Here in Kentucky this year we seem to be having snow weeks rather than the old snow days we had when I was little! Although the kids seemed to like being out of school at first, it is rather odd to hear them saying they want to go!!
Since we have had more snow this week, I have unfortunately been on a set bck in my crafting! That along with a big party for a little birthday girl this Saturday! Once the cake is decorated tonight - that'll be all I can do until tomorrow when we go to decorate!
Since I didn't get the opportunity to participate in the Fun on Friday challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts this week, I wanted to take the time to share my projects from last weeks Scripture Saturday and CASE artist Saturday at Christian Paper Crafts!
God Bless You,

Strawberry-Banana Bread Kind of Day...

Winner!! If you are GOCANUCKS go, please send me an email to (sorry, had to type it that way to prevent spam) with your email address and name! You have won a small gift certificate to Lauren Meader's new store, My Time Made Easy!
Yumm.... Last night I baked some homemade strawberry-banana bread... so nice and fresh, we are eating this loaf without the topping :o) I guess that just means we'll have to force ourselves to make another loaf to try the topping!
Today I'm combining some challenges in my projects! First you will see my card!
This card was made with clear cardstock, PTI paper, Unity Stamp, etc... The challenge for DCRU this week is to NOT use DP or Patterned Paper. Even though it was hard, I drug out the cuttlebug and used my new floral screen folder to do a little embossing, The fabulous sketch come from the ever-so talented 2Sketches4You and the glitz and glimmer you see on the church house, well that's part of the challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts today for Fun on Friday! We have a special guest host and you'll want to click over there and find out more!!

Next is a layout that I made of my sweet little girl on Christmas morning! The layout was part of a challenge for our local scrapbook store, and the glitter that is showered about the snowflakes is for Fun on Friday today as well!
I hope you have a wonderful day and blessed weekend. My sweet hubby has minister's conference tonight, so I guess me and the little one are going to have a night to ourselves!
Don't forget to check out {Ippity} Kisses! There are some MAGNIFICENT Grand Opening Sales there and remember, this {ippity} chick does it for charity!!

God Bless You,

So Happy For You...

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day! The little love of my life and I had a date with her daddy last night to McDonald's and a Wal-Mart trip all for her! Anytime I am excited over something, Abby is sure to be the first to tell me, I'm so happy for you, mommy! Now how sweet is that, especially coming from someone not even 3 yet! Abby girl, I am so happy for me that God blessed me to be your mommy!
It's Saturday, so you know what that means here! CASE artist Saturday and Scripture Saturday over at Christian Paper Crafts.
I used today's scripture - very Valentine's appropriate might I add :o) - "I am my beloved's..." (Song of Solomon 2:16). The page is of my wonderful hubby and I on our wedding day, and yes... I am still working on the wedding scrapbook album after all these years...or should I say I am finally working on it!
Today's CASE artist is thumbunny! I really enjoyed cruising through her gallery and making this card from one of the layouts found there!
My sweetie has to work today :o( and I have to file a complaint on eBay...the first time since I have had the account for over 7 years! Not fun at all!

God Bless You,

Fun and Fabulous 'Cause It's Friday!

I'm so excited that Friday is finally here! With snow in the middle of the week, it seems to have made this week so much longer! I thought I would be able to sneak out of "date night" tonight since I have so much homework and housework, but alas, I have been talked into it, and we agreed to a modified date night :o) Sounds like Abby is still getting her way :o)
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, have you found your sweetie something yet? My hubby's gift is hidden away, just waiting for Sunday - as is Abby's! Instead of buying candy from the store, I decided to bake up some brownies with the cutest little white chocolate chips on top and tuck them down in a pocket heart! A warm and sweet treat for these cold little days before Valentine's!

Pin It

Check out today's Fun on Friday over at Christian Paper Crafts and link back there telling us about your creation :o) I decided to combine this Friday's challenge with the weekly challenge over at DCRU - to have LOVE as the theme of your project! Oh, and the paper, why that's Basic Grey Sugar Rush left over from last week! Gotta use those Valentine goodies up while you can!

God Bless You,

P.S. Don't forget that you can sign up for "Birthday Blog Candy" once per day from now until Tuesday - the winner will be announced Wednesday morning!

My Strength...

Working on scrapbook pages is not only a stress relief, but combining it with studying the Bible, makes it extra special! Over at Christian Paper Crafts, I host Scripture Saturday where a Bible Verse is the inspiration of our page. This past week, our verse was Psalm 18:3... Here is my page - ready and waiting for a picture to be slapped on there!
I hope your Wednesday is a wonderful one and that the rest of your week will go just as well!
God Bless You,

Super Scrap Sunday

Well, it's not really that here, but I thought it would be a nice thought! It's more like "Super get the homework, housework, and everything ready for the work week Sunday"! Oh, and that big football game comes on today as well!
I decided to work on my honey's Valentine card while he watches the big game and works away at the computer! Oh how I love that man, he makes the world spin just a little bit easier here at our home...
This little card also follows the DCRU challenge for this week...see, it has just a touch of "sugah" (Basic Grey Sugar Rush were the color combo challenges) and uses Basic Grey Sugar Rush Products!! The tag is really something my "sugah" would say to me! I am sure with both of us working full time, having a toddler, and me in school full time taking accelerated classes, I do more than drive him a little nuts at times :o) I love you, honey!
Have a wonderful week my Bloggy Family :o)

God Bless You,

*Insert Catchy Title Here*

I'm not having too creative of a day (as if you aren't aware of that after seeing the title of today's blog). If the calander wasn't saying Tuesday, I would be more than convinced that today is Monday all over again, expect more Monday-ish, so to speak! I hear the groundhog saw his shadow, which I suppose means 6 more weeks of plowing the snow in the Camry for me...
My little one is even getting tired ofthe snow, which is something I should most definately scrapbook, but chose to scrapbook happy memories of snow for her instead! Check this out!

This whole page is made from nothing but scraps of leftover Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper from last year! Check out the snowflakes cut out on the Cricut. The middle one is smothered in Martha Stewart glitter!
Check back tomorrow to see if these scraps went just a little bit futher...

God Bless You,
