A Mother's day gift idea...layout...and a little sale...


Shelly has been very busy again!  She created this lovely necklace our of scrap paper and made a card to match.  I don't know how she comes up with all these fabulous ideas? 

I just love all the bright spring colors that she used. Wouldn't this make a fantastic mother's day gift? 

To make the flowers on the card she used my  layered flowers file.  I am amazed at how many uses my creative design team comes up with in using that one file!






And here is another awesome layout created by Shelly, "Gifts of Love" Isn't it adorable?

This is such a great layout with memories of a wonderful event.

She has a toy that she cut out for her daughter to see what was one of her first toys.  I like the way she staggered her pictures. Of course you can't help but see  her adorable children aren't they the cutest?  I could eat them up!  I love... love babies!  

The gifts all  keep with the theme. I really like the details that she added to the page. Like the ribbons on the gifts and the stitching.  Everything just seems to come together so well in this layout.

Shelly used my presents file to create the packages.

Don't forget to check out the calendar on the right.  You can print it by clicking on the print button above.  This way you will know what's on sale and coming up for the month of May.

It's going to be a very busy weekend around here.  I've got a girl friend coming to spend the night tomorrow night.  We plan on catching up with a group of ladies to make our very own Mother's day celebration by eating out at the Olive Garden.    We figured we needed a night out!

Saturday we have three birthday parties to attend to.  Then we all know what Sunday is...Mother's day.  I'm so looking forward to it!  Last year Scott filled the dining room table with crab legs, it was way to much fun sitting there eating up all that crab.

I'm having a hard time giving my family ideas to shop for me.      I don't know, it's a terrible thing, if they buy me clothes I usually return them.  Is that mean? 

I can't ask for flowers this year since we might have to dig them  up to move with us.  I'm already trying to figure out how to take my pine trees and dog woods. 

  Then their is the expensive things I would like...but I don't want to put the pressure on them and I always talk myself out of it thinking I've lived with out it this far.  Ok then their is scrapbook supplies...I've gone down this route before.  I ask for a couple of specific items and they get me other stuff. 


I really would rather enjoy the  day... Like waking up to (smelly) eggs that Julie is trying to make... And getting dandelions that Jesse picked...and watching Jennifer & Kristen help the little ones color a mother's day picture for me... I can't wait to spend time with Jason, Brian & Katie having no pressure to get anything done, for any of us.

I hope that your family will spoil you!  Have a wonderful weekend!

My creative design team have been busy again! 

I am so excited to share with you some of their creative ideas...

This adorable flower bouquet was created by Jen. It makes such a wonderful personalized mother's day gift.  Wouldn't you love to receive this? 

I just love it! And she even thought to fill it with candy kisses, how sweet is that!

moms day present

Jen used my playful tags file to create the flowers. By enlarging the scalloped circle and enlarging the other plain circle.  She used green ribbon to create the leaves.  For an added element she used prima flowers.  I hope you get a chance to visit her blog and tell her how awesome this it!




Another awesome gift for mom!  This personalized cd case which can be filled with many memories on a circle album.


  I just love the way Jen used the jeweled butterfly and metal as accents. Once again she used the playful tags file by enlarging the scalloped circle.


This is a great end of the school year idea presented by Rosalie. Just place your child's photo on the note pad and your done! I just love easy ideas to help us get our scrapping finished.

I know we are not thinking of snow right now!  But you might be working on catching up?  I know I have many years to catch up on.   Here is a wonderful winter layout created by Jen.  She used my the snowflakes and title from "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas."











Are you thinking of sending a card?  Maybe one for mother's day?This card was created by Tina, I love the colors that she used and the flourishes in the back ground.  To create the 3-D effect she just used my layered flowers, cut them out added some pop dots and it was finished.


This would also make a great card for someone who might need some cheering up!


Let's hear it for my creative design team, what do you think...


They do awesome work!
