Charmed, I'm sure!

Hello there blogland!! Woot, two posts within two days of each other... is that mojo I hear calling me? How I have missed you... :)

Today's challenge at Craft Your Passion is to incorporate a charm into your project... And I have been HOARDING these gorgeous Bo Bunny charms since like FOREVER to use on a Ballerina project... SOOOO, viola, I actually made a scrapbook page (gasp)!!

I really feel like I NEVER get to scrap these days, so I as truly blessed to slap some paper and glue together for this one! :) And seriously, it's as simple a page as I have ever made, which kind of reminded me that it doesn't ALWAYS have to be a multi-hour project to maintain memories... I have GOT to get back to the basics and get some pages DONE! :) These were from Melanie's recital in 2012... So I'm only a year off, but I do have pictures from her recital in 2009 that are not in a book yet, so that goes to show... :)

Anywhoo, I'll be submitting this one to Scrap it with a Song (I CANNOT get the Lionel Richie song "Ballerina Girl" out of my head now!) :)

Thanks for swinging by and have a WONDERFUL day!! :)

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL!!!

Hey blogland, and welcome to football season. Ok, well maybe not welcome this far into it but the time has definitely arrived! :) I'm STILL working on getting the hubs tickets to a Jets game this season but our end of Jersey has already been abuzz with Super Bowl talk because it's in our backyard this year at the Meadowlands.

SOOO, I made this card for the hubs' birthday with the hopes of scoring tickets to a Jets game to include within. His b-day isn't until November, so I'm still ok with timing, I hope! :)

This one was made for this week's DTBST challenge (Fall colors) at Sassy Studio Designs and I'll be entering her into the following challenges as well: 2 Sisters (Anything Goes) and Color Me Creative (Fall colors). Thanks for swinging by and for bearing with me these past few weeks... back to school this year has been CRAZY hectic and I have had time for NO crafting...

Boogie Mambo

Hey there blog land!! I FINALLY had a few hours to get my scrap on between traveling for dance competition and getting ready for back to school...

This layout features my baby girl's tap group number, "Boogie Mambo" and it just makes me cry to see how far she has come these ten years... she loves tap and she truly excels at it, which was just proved by them taking first place overall in Regionals for this number and second place overall at Nationals... It was so good for her self confidence too! :)

This double layout was created for this month's Sketch challenge at Scrap A Doodle Doo featuring the sketch below...

I am also submitting this one to 4 Krafty Girlz (Anything Goes), Addicted to CAS (Music). Thanks so much for swinging by and have a fantabulous day!

All about the Kiddos...

Hello blogland and happy Friday to you!!! Even though I only had students for two days (technically) this week, it STILL is TGIF!! :)

This month's Card Makin' Mamas challenge is for the kids, and we are being sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo!

I had lots of fun with this super bright creation and even found a way to crack out my washi tape stash... I have to say, I like the stuff cause, well, it's pretty, but it is not my go to craft item yet, and I'm hoping to incorporate it more whenever possible...

Anywhoo... Thanks for swinging by and I do hope you have a craftilicious day! :)

Are you ready for school?? :)

It's that time again... another new school year! :) Melanie started the fifth grade (gasp) yesterday and I CANNOT wrap my head around the fact that my baby is rowing up so fast! :)

I made this post it note holder with her teacher in mind, but then she told me NOT to give it to her because she doesn't want to look like she's sucking up so early in the year... It blew my mind that my baby who once LOVED giving teacher gifts that were made by mommy now has something to say against it. AND she made sense (even if I disagreed with her!!)

I may just hold onto it until she IS ready to give it to her teacher or I can just use it on my own desk at school lol! Thanks for stopping by and head on over to Sassy Studios to play along with this week's "Back to School" challenge! :)
