Frames for the birthday girl


Happy Memorial Day dear friends !!!!!!

I hope everyone has enjoyed there long weekend !!! I know I sure have that is for sure.

I went to the graveyard and decorated my parents grave along with my Aunt Rosie’s.

Then Saturday we had my oldest granddaughters birthday party. She turned 9. It was sure a hot day but we had a cookout and all the kids played volleyball and played in the pool. Then she got a trampoline for her birthday so they all had a great time in it. And this ol lady got in it too. Oh what a site it was !!!!

So yesterday I had a play day in my craft room finishing up all the projects that had been started for my youngest granddaughter’s birthday. She always wants some craft stuff from me along with her presents and this time she placed her own order along with a picture lol She is a total little diva that is for sure lol

But this is one of her dear friends she gave me a picture of so this is the frame I made for her. I used A Wee Stamp that I got at Whimsy Stamps along with the sentiment and die for it. Then I used a Memory Box die and added some bling. I used some lazer Chipboard from Make It Crafty and colored it with the Silks Acrylic Glaze. The flowers were painted with Glamour Dust Glitter Paint. And I colored my image with my copic’s and spica glitter pens. The paper is some older paper from SU.


The next frame is a image from Sylvia Zet for Susana’s Custom Art and Cards. She has also been colored with copic’s and spica glitter pens.

I used some more lazer chipboard from Make it Crafty and this gorgeous bling flourish is from a very sweet dear friend.

Flowers were painted with glamour dust glitter paint.


All the same things here except I used a Wee image here and the papers are also older SU papers.


I am just about done with my projects one more to go and my desk will be clean again lol I hope to finish it today. We will see.

Thanks so much for stopping bye and seeing me. I know I don’t get on much but do thank each of you that leave me such wonderful comments.

Sending you Big Hugs ((((()))))) And enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

Oh it has been so long !!!

Hello dear friends !!! Man it seems like ages since I have been on !!! My poor ol blog has been neglected so bad !

I am still working lots of hours but I finally got a weekend off and was so ready for it. My plan is to get all my work done today so I can just sit and enjoy the day Sunday.

Besides working there has been so much going on in my life with my family it is unreal !!

Below is a picture of my dad’s brothers and sisters this was taken in 2005. My dad passed away in 1988 so he is the only one missing here but Uncle Boob has been ill and in a nursing home since Feb. He is doing therapy and we are hoping to get him home soon he is walking with a walker now so he is getting better but his wife Aunt Rosie passed away April 18th very unexpectedly. She was a rock so this was such a shock to us all !!!! She was a sweetheart that was for sure. So we had her funeral and this  Monday Uncle Boob’s TWIN sister Aunt Marge passed away.  So it has been a trying time here. Aunt Marge and Uncle Boob was 83 the 27th of April.

The evening of the day we buried Aunt Rosie my grandson was going home that night and he took the country roads home which was shorter. And this stupid deer came out of the  woods and ran right into the drivers side of Dyllon’s door. The deer’s head busted his drivers side window out and got him in the face and all the glass cut his face up and got in his eye. He is doing okay but the jeep got a number done to it. The body of the deer went back and got both doors and the rear quarter panel. But he is okay now and that is great. He just misses his vehicle lol

Then to top it off we found out my oldest daughter had cervical cancer. She has had her surgery and is doing good. They are 97% they got it all but she will go every 3 months to have a check up to make sure it hasn’t came back.
So needless to say my life has been pretty crazy !!!


I have not been in my craft room for over a month and I had so many projects half done that had been there for months. So last night I decided to add the flowers to them and let them be lol It was great to get to play but the ol mojo just isn’t there anymore. I still have lots of projects laying there to be finished so maybe one day I can get them done. Some are for my granddaughters birthday which is in June and another one the 28th of May !!! Don’t know if they will get done or not lol

But here is a card I had done using a Krista Smith image. It has been so long ago I could not tell you what paper pad this is from but I do know it came from Susana’s Custom Art and Cards . I buy all my paper from her and I used some glamour dust glitter paint on the flowers. I saw where Krista has a challenge for may flowers so after many many months I am going to enter this there at Saturated Canary Challenge Blog.


Next I added some flowers to this project to finish it up. A picture frame with Tilda. I got some gorgeous bling from a dear friend for my birthday and I used it on the frame. The papers are some old MME papers again Glamour dust glitter paint was used on the flowers.

So sorry I don’t remember much about these 2 projects but it has been so long since I had started them.


Well I have so much housework to get caught up on and outside work. I am going to get it all done today so I can take tomorrow to do nothing.

I do hope everyone is doing well and hopefully one day I can get back into the groove of crafting again. But for now just some old projects that had been laying around unfinished lol

As always sending Big Hugs your way (((((((((())))))))))))))))))
