More Mojo Monday inspired cards...

I really like this weeks Mojo Monday Challenge. So I made a couple more cards for my 'Cards for Cancer' fundraiser. And another one that I made this weekend at our Scrapbooking Retreat. Enjoy!

Love, Love, Love how this one turned out. This one was base on this weeks Mojo Monday challenge.

This was also inspired by Mojo Monday, but I strayed a bit.

This one was fun. I 'lifted' it from another site and for the life of me, can't figure out which one. I'll give credit when I find it.

Mojo Monday Week 75...

I love doing these Mojo Monday Challenges...even though it's Tuesday. I'm still making cards for my Relay For Life team so I made a set of 6 for that. I'm very pleased with how these turned out, since I was oh so disappointed in my card from last week. Somedays you just have to remember less is more.

Supplies Used:
My Minds Eye Paper: Dazzling "Our Princess" Summer Stripes/Pink Deco and "Sugar and Spice" Princess in Training/Make a Wish from the 'Just Dreamy 2' line.
Stampin' Up: Fun & Fast Notes stamp set
Stampin' Up: Basic Black, Real Red and Glorious Green stamp pad with the Blender Pen

Last minute Valentines Cards....

My poor Husband and Daughter always get the shaft! Here it's almost 11:30pm and I'm just getting their cards done. I like them though. I used left over scraps of my Candy Lane designer series (#11380) and the Love You Much stamp set (#113756).

I totally 'scraplifted' this design from Jamie Sears. Check out her blog...she's another amazing stamper/scrapper. I copied this almost exactly since I was WAY too tired to really change it up and make it mine.

My daughter LOVES Valentines Day. She will be so excited when she wakes up to this.

And my husband got these for me today. He's trying to play it cool...but I found the little 'shiny' box in the closet. He needs to learn to hide it better. LOL!

School Goody Bags...DONE!!

Well almost anyway. Ha! So here are the 'almost' finished treat bags for Rebecca's Valentines party next Friday. All that's left to do is add a little something on the 'heart candy' bags. I loaned my 'Love You Much' Stamp set to my girlfriend and I'm getting it back on Saturday. I've decided to just leave the bags themselves alone and not add too much. Hindsight 20/20, I really should've made these more for kids and not so mature (you know with the paper colors and such), but I was too excited to make them and too lazy to run out to Michael's and get paper. Oh well. Maybe the Moms will love them and book a party. (I stuck a business card on the bottom of them...is that tacky?!) Who cares...I need to book some parties! LOL!

I couldn't believe how easy these were to make. I just love the Top Note die. It is so versatile.

Teachers bag. Not much but it was fun to make. I've still got to get more New York Patty mints to fill it up more. I made two of these as she has 2 teachers who job share. And I have to admit that this is the very first box I've made so I'm quite proud of it.

Not too sick to do some crafts...

I just can't lay in bed and sleep anymore! I still have no voice and 'remy Dr. can't get me in. So I'm going to see how the day goes and if I need to go to Urgent Care I will.

I started these the other day and really needed to finish them. They're little gift bags for Rebecca's Valentines Party next Friday. I'm not quite done with them yet. I'm going to make some cute 'little' cards and attach them to the top left corners of the bags. Maybe I'll get to that tomorrow. Of course I'll post the completed pictured.

Supplies used:
Brown paper bags cut to 3 1/2" from the bottom of the bag
Sahara Sand (#105328) cut at 5 1/2"x4"
Stampin' Up Ginger Blossom designer series (discontinued)cut at 5 1/4"x3 3/4" (except the white with red dots...that is My Minds Eye Paper)
Scallop Punch (#109043)
Circle Punch (1 3/8" #104401 & 1 1/4" #104403)
Heart to Heart punch (#113694)
Ribbon for the handles

I got my inspiration off of Splitcoast Stampers and inparticular this CUTE bag! I just added my own touches. This is such a cheap and easy way to make gift bags. There's so much you can do to them. Who would've ever though that a simple brown lunch bag could be used in so many different ways. It's cool!

I couldn't resist....

So my girlfriend Melissa and her son Peyton came up this weekend for a visit. And first, just let me say that ever since I moved 3 hours away from all of my friends in June, they've all come to see me as much as I've been to see them. Those are real friends and I love them for that. OK...on to scrapbooking...

Well Mr. Peyton has always loved my daughter Rebecca and the feeling is mutual. And Peyton is ALL boy. He's rough and tough and once in a while he'll even let out a curse word. Which isn't funny...but it is. One of his favorite words is 'My daddy's a Bad Ass!". LOL. It's true. His daddy is an American Hero and has served our country for 16+ years as a Marine and has done 2 tours in Iraq. He's not just a bad ass...he's an American Bad Ass!!

Ok...so here's this darling little boy who worships my girly girl. So yesterday Rebecca decided to put on one of her many Princess dresses. Joking, I said "Peyton, do you wanna put on a dress?" He said "NO!". That didn't last long, because once he saw his 'girlfriend' in a pretty dress, he basically said what the heck and put on the one that had the most blue in it. Gotta give him credit for that! He did not choose the PINK one. So he puts the dress on and then the bow headband too. LOVED it!!! He wasn't too proud to go out back and even drive the purple Barbie Jeep. When he does something, he gives 100%! LOL!! He didn't take it off until bath time...many hours later when he (and Rebecca) smelled like wet dogs from sweating in those dresses outside.

I couldn't help but do a layout for Melissa, whom in her defense was not at all happy with her son in a dress and even sporting bright pink lipstick I'm certain Rebecca put on him. So I HAD to take a picture of it to post, to not only warn her that it's coming to her on Saturday at Bunco, but to document the layout before the 'Bad Ass American Hero' shreds it up in little pieces! Haaaaaaaa! Too Funny!
