Please excuse the fuzzy pictures I am not sure why they turned fuzzy after I uploaded to blogger :(




My Daughter is getting excited for summer. She has all these plans of summer chores cutting grass, weeding the garden, scoopin Poop lol she just wants to earn money!!

Coffee Gift Set



Hope you all had a great weekend :).. Monday is  already here and that means a Totally Stampalicious Challenge. The challenge this week is to use ribbons and polka dots. I decided to make a gift set this week. Candles, chocolate, coffee and Bailys.... Yummie .. To finish it all up a huge cup :) The cup was made with the bottom half of Lauren Meaders MTME Baby Buggie and I got this creative idea from  Katie. If you look closely you can see that I took the digital image of the cup (TS digital coffee brawd) , broke it apart and cut it with my cricut I also did the same with the words Espresso Yourself on the coffee mug., I also did a bit of paper piecing which fits in with Paper Sundae's Challenge  this week so I will enter that one as well . Thank you for joining me today ....Monique

Totally Stampalicious is looking for a Guest Design Team member to head on over to find out how you can apply and while your there , don't forget to apply for that Awesome blog candy. :)

Wild Flowers


I would like to start off saying.. Unfortunally I did not think this up, and to top it off I can't for the life of me remember where I  seen it. I have looked threw my computer and surfed a bit and cannot find it. So if this was your wonderful idea please tell me and I will give you credit ASAP... I am using this project for two challenges. The first challenge is JUGS color challenge. Colors needed are Lt. blue, Lt green, Lt Brown and Yellow. Second Challenge is C4C you need to have a Spring theme. So here is my take. I used flowers from CTMH april stamp set to make my outside DP, the border along the outside on front and the inside is done with my new sewing machine :)... I have used distreesed technique. Embossed my big tulips, and I think that is about it. Thanks for joining me today... Monique
