Pretty In Pink

Isn't my darling niece a DOLL?! I created this layout for a 12 x 12 black shadow box that will be displayed in my scraproom.
I used 5 inch sheer ribbon, folded it in half and stiched it to create the pendants. Then added pink satin ribbon to one.
The special princess note and patterned paper is from Teresa Collins' new line "Chic Bebe Girl." The lettering is from Storybook cricut cartridge and the flowers are made by me. The black rhinestones are from Queen & Co. and the rhinestones in the flowers are from Stampin Up.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day! =)

New Home

A young couple very close to us has purchased their first home, so after going through my Cricut cartridges, this is what I came up with. The birdhouse is from "Stretch Your Imagination" and the birds are from "Home Decor."

Congratulations stamp is from "My Pink Stamper," patterned paper (red) is from "DCWV" (green) is from Stampin Up and I also used hemp twine to fill the center of the birdhouse.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a wonderful day! =)

Happy 19th Birthday!

Our Valentine "baby" of the family (my niece) turned 19 yesterday. She is enjoying her first year of college life, but is technically a Sophomore (due to the extra courses she took her Senior year in High School) AND she made the Dean's List last semester. We are so proud of her and happy we could celebrate this SPECIAL day with her!!

Used the "Spring Card Kit" that I purchased from Barb (aka Snowmanlover). She is a fabulous Stampin Up demonstrator and a wonderful person. I am CRAZY over the card kits she puts together! Makes it super easy for me to whip out a card when I need to.

Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific week! =)

Doggie Snow Day

We woke up this morning to a beautiful blanket of snow and our 4-legged furry kids just loved it! The area must have had between 8 to 10 inches, which is unusual for us here in Texas. Thank you to the newspaper carriers who bundled our newspaper into a bright orange bag which made it much easier to find in the snow covered
This is our boy Kasper

And this is our girl Bailey
What a cute face!
Hope everyone has a safe and fun filled weekend!! =)

Our Snow Day In Texas

I just love it when we get snow in our part of the state! I's not as much as other parts of the U.S. are getting, but we sure welcome it every chance we get.

And it is still coming down...
Stay warm everyone!! =)
