so now for my blog....

"I" have 3 special things to share today.
My first is a layout that I made with some of the pictures
I took at the Disneyland Main Street Parade last year!
It is a fun holiday tradition in our family to spend the day
eating lots of yummy holiday treats and riding the rides and
of course my favorite part is the parade!
I love that I can get photos of all the characters dressed in
their finest Christmas costumes and Santa Claus too
all in one place -and all at one time...

I needed some big poinsettia's to go with this so I got out
some of the printed papers from the new Christmas Collection
and embossed them with red glitter, cut them out
 and layered them
to mix in with the flowers already on the papers.
  I added some extra stickles for sparkle on each of
the flowers and some glittery gold flourishes on each side
of the flowers too! I really love all the glitz, if you have ever
seen the absolutely gorgeous decorations at Disneyland
for the Holiday this paper
really does it justice with all the sparkles :)

I found this clear transparent snowflake embellishment and it
went perfect in this spot.....

supplies for this page are:
GP 017, 018, 171, 173, 418, 424
and Sand Glitter Cardstock

The base of this cone was supposed to be a
Christmas tree but I got this great idea to make an
Country Angel for the top of my new tree.
All the ruffles are border trimmed paper gathered
and glued to the base.  Her arms are rolled paper and
so are her wings behind the netting.  I made
her a bouquet of gold butterflies and ribbons.
I would have liked her dress to be fuller but maybe
on the next one I would try something different :)

My last project is just this simple card with cut out
snowflakes from our Winter paper Collection.
This is going to be a hand it to the person card because it
would cost a fortune to mail with all the layers!!
anyway hope you like my projects today and

Your next stop on the hop is over to
and only 3 more to go!!  Thanks for hopping over
and good luck to you :)

Ridin in Hawaii

Here is another layout that I got done from our vacation
in Hawaii last month.  I would have done more but ran out of
ink to print photos.  I didn't want to go with the traditional
riding papers so I picked some that I had with bright colors to remind me
of all the beautiful flowers there! It was so gorgeous!! 

The girls had a blast riding their horses all over the ranch
in the hills of Hawaii and the weather was absolutely perfect
 for them too.  Couldn't have been a better day!!

Just catching up...

This month- like this year is flying by and my best intentions
to work on my own projects hasn't really happened much but I
got a few things done this weekend and will try to get more 
posted this week.  When I heard on the radio that
Christmas was only so many days away now, I thought I 
better start getting some things together and 
make up some things for the Holidays and fast!

This page I did with New Basic Grey papers!  The colors
were fantastic for this picture that I got of my great uncle
and family.  I have an amazing cousin who is the one to contact
for family info and she gave me lots of new ones 
but I have yet to scrap them!  So this is my first
but at least it is a start right?

This fun little mini book I created for some recipes I am 
giving with matching aprons that I have yet to make but
I am working on it...  The paper is from Pine Cone Press
and I layered lots of each paper and cut a white
lacy looking border with a Martha Stewart Punch.
I added some sparkly stickles to the front too
and a few flowers and some ribbon.

This book is just a folded 12x12 piece of paper
and you could make one to put cards and envelopes in too!

Thanks for stopping by.....  Teresa

Fun new papers from Webster's

I got to use some new papers from Webster's new lines 
for my 2 new layouts.  They have great sticker sheets and letters
and I love the Christmas because it has so many colors
it doesn't look like the traditional Christmas at all.

I used my Tim Holtz die to make the flowers and a leaf
die from Sizzix.  The snowflakes are these gorgeous 
stickers from Best Creation and they have a little 
opalie kind of look to them... they are really, really pretty
and super easy to use....

This was just fun paper to use to show all the fun souvenirs that
everyone got in the airport.  We all took lots and lots
of pictures at CHA so the camera theme kind of fit for me! :)
It's simple and i love the letters!!
You can get all these new papers at
Hearts N Crafts Etc and lots more from their new lines.

Hopefully I can get more things on the blog this week.
  I am catching up with life and 
my kitchen is finally done and I can cook again.  Whoo-hoo

so hope you like the new pages and hope you
create something fun for you today!
