H2O Spray Bottle

(Click to enlarge image)

I saw this bottle at Hobby Lobby and it was screaming to be decorated!!! I used Wild Card for the font and for the circles. The circles were cut at 3/4", the "H" and "O" were cut at 2" and the 2 was cut at 1".

6 year old's Sunflower Painting

This is my son's first canvas painting. His inspiration was something he drew/colored in art class. We made the green paint color by mixing the yellow and blue. :-) Thank goodness for those Glad commercials when I was growing up! haha!!!

He wrote all kinds of information on the side of the canvas, like his name and that he painted it after school.

He has been wanting to paint on canvas since I painted the owl on canvas...he didn't know I had canvas hidden in the closet for him, I was just waiting for the perfect time to pull it out and today was the day. He had so much fun and was proud of himself...Mommy was proud too!

Croc Forever Young Purse

Here is another Forver Young purse. I feel it is missing something and I just can't put my finger on it...any suggestions? I plan to put a gift card inside for my son's teacher. She has animal print stuff in the classroom, so I know she likes animal prints, hence the reason for the handle. I'm hoping something hits me before Monday!!!

Fabric covered Forever Young Purse

Forever Young Purse


Cricut Forever Young Cart
Cricut Design Studio
Adhesive (E6000)

I made this using a purse on the Forever Young Cart. I used Design Studio to make it as big as possible. Once I cut out the purse, I used adhesive to glue it to fabric. Once the adhesive dried, I cut the purse and then started decorating it.

I used flock on the sides of the purse to add more texture to the purse.

Still need to figure out what to do with the purse handles...any suggestions are welcomed!!!!

Alien Among Us

(Click picture to enlarge image)
My son requested a robot layout for his scrapbook. This is a 2 page layout. I don't do very many layouts anymore. I like to order preprinted books from Shutterfly or Sams, but I couldn't resist his request. The robots were created a while back - I just now got around to finishing the layout.

He was excited when I finished the layout, I got 2 hugs and a kiss. He's such a sweetie...when I was scrapping at my desk earlier today, he suggested I open my Ott-lite...he had hidden a suncatcher inside for me. We bought a pack of suncatchers yesterday at HL and the kids painted them yesterday.

For a close up of the robotz, click here.

Tim Holtz Sprocket Gears
Cricut Robotz Cart
Stampin' Spots - Tempting Turquiose
Stampin' Spots - Green Galore
Recollections Patterned paper (4 Sheets listed below)

  • Rockets 'n' Sprockets Gear Head
  • Rockets 'n' Sprockets Blast Off
  • Rockets 'n' Sprockets Switchback
  • mom's diner Salt

The paper sprockets were cut using the "font" feature of Robot44 - they were cut at 10 3/4, 7" and 5" if I am not mistaken. The circle inside the biggest sprocket is the "font" feature of Robot30.

The font is from the Robotz cart; cut at 1 1/2".

***forgot to add, I used silver brads on the sprockets - inked them with Tim Holtz Copper Metallic Alcohol Ink.

Hello Followers

Thanks to EVERYONE following my blog! Just wanted to let you know, I am a weekend scrapper. I work during the week, for a great company I will not name. In order to pick up the kids, I leave work at 2:30 each day - rush to pre-school to pick up my daughter and then on to elementary school to get my son by 3:10. In order to pick the kids up when I do, I bring my work laptop home and make up the time from home during the evening.

It is exhausting, but I wouldn't trade the time with the kids for anything. My husband is very supportive - we work as a team to make it work.

Thanks for following my blog - I appreciate you all and look forward to your feedback!

Girlie Robot

(Click image to enlarge)

Here she is! My 4 year old and I played with the Robotz cart today. I chose the mouth, ears and antenna - she picked out the rest and showed me where to place it. We had so much fun!

We cut the robot 49 at 10". I used E6000 to glue most of it together. We also used a CB border embossing folder to create a border on the belly of this girlie robot.

I originally had green fabric covered brads for the eyes, one was plaid and the other was polka-dot, but she wanted pink and she wanted them to match. She had fun digging them out of the brad container. :-)

Oh I almost forgot to mention, we made the arms last and she asked me to make them so that they are up in the air - like she is saying "WAAAHOOO!"

She loves how it turned out...and I am thankful to have today off work to spend with her.


I am going to scrap soon as I get 2 activity reports done for work.

I think my daughter and I will make another 3D robot, a pink one this time.

I was going to post a link to an awesome robot from the Cricut MB, but I think the board just went down...:-(
