I actually scrapbooked!

I have not done a page in so long that I almost forgot how fun it is. The other day I got sometime and was in the right mood so I got these 2 pages done as well as a mini book for Maggie's 7th Birthday. Just in time for her 8th Birthday which is coming up soon. I will show that on another day since she has already taken it and I didn't get to photograph it yet.

The first page is the pictures from Father's Day dinner. I used some Making Memories paper and Thickers. Its a real simple design.

The second one is of pictures of a backyard fort that Maggie and her friend made. I used a plethora of different papers for the circles. The title is cut with the Cricut and the gems are Prima.

Well, gotta go get back in bed. I had a tooth pulled today and I am a little loopy. Thanks for stoppin' by. XO, Mimi

Happy Father's Day!

My baby Daddy has to work today, of all days.
So, we had Father's Day yesterday.

Maggie decided to make dinner using some recipes
from her new cook book. She wanted to make salmon,
fettuccine Alfredo and fresh fruit for dessert.

I stood back and took pictures and read the directions
and let her do most of the work. It turned out so
wonderful and delicious.

P.S.-IRL my kitchen is not neon yellow! LOL!
It turns out so bright yellow in pictures.
It needs a new color!

All of the classes at the Young Chefs Academy are really
paying off!

She even dressed the table and made up a menu.
Daddy and I were so impressed.

I forgot to get a picture of the cake she made before she
cut it up and started serving. It was very decorative. LOL!

Happy Birthday Milissa!

One of my best buddies celebrated her Birthday last Wednesday while we were out of town.
So, of course, I used that as an excuse to be late with her gifts.
Even though her and her girls came up to play with us at Disney on Thursday.
What a fun time we had!

Her favorite color is, can you guess, green!
So, I made her some fun green stuff which is both green in color and green for our earth.

The first is what everything is in. This sweet pouch is for on the side of the table when you are crafting. That's right, a little reusable trash can. More on that tomorrow.

Then there are 2 TO DO lists that I printed from here.
Of course I had to print them on some pretty green paper and then I laminated them so she can use them over and over again.

Then I crocheted (sp? that just doesn't look right) some nice dish cloths out of cotton yarn so they can be used and thrown in the washing machine and used again. And, of course, think of me while she's doing the dishes. LOL!

Then there's the card. I made it using some papers I had left over from when I was the guest designer for her club. The stamp is from Repeat Impressions and is a 2 part set. You see part one on the front of the card with a cute little birdy chirping a happy tune. But inside is a devious cat who ate the bird. Love it!

Well, that's all for now. I hope she likes her stuff and enjoys going green for her birthday! Thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi

We're Back!

We got home on Friday, actually. I was just too busy unpacking the camper and I had to work on Saturday and yesterday was a day of complete rest!

I have been a busy girl though.

This is just one of the cute little things I have made since being home.

The paper for this card is from TPC Studio and it is full of bright colors, flowers and bugs. I love it.

I think it goes great with this Kim Hughes set called Fun Summer Trees.
I love that big daisy button too!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer, so far! Thanks for stopping by! XO, Mimi

My last camper card, promise!

I love this colorful camper. It reminds me of the Partridge Family bus! LOL! Now I'm showing my age!
Still havin' fun in Orlando. Wish you were here!
XO, Mimi

Another one, from the road

Well, there are no snow capped mountains here in Orlando, FL but we are having a blast.
The weather is fabulous and we may head to a water park today.
Thanks for stoppin' by! XO, Mimi

Headin' out for some family time

My family and I are getting ready to head to Fort Wilderness for the week.
So, to get in the camping mood, I made some "hittin' the road" cards.
This just uses a little set that I picked up at Michael and some K&Co. paper. I colored it with Copics and added some Crystal Effects to the road signs.
Well, I wish you a fabulous week while I'm gone. XO, Mimi
