8 reasons...

You know you are creating for CHA when...
1. you have modge-podged your eyebrow
2. your two year old has Razzleberry Mini Alphas from My Little Shoebox on her little rear end!
3. you got a manicure after your projects were done, only to have this great idea which in turn messed up your manicure...oops!
4. you have cut open a bottle of Glossy Accents to get the very last drop... three different times!
5. you gave up trying to sew and just used your tiny attacher instead!
6. after getting your hands all glammed up with some Glimmer Glam you wiped your hands on your butt only to have glitter hand prints for all to see - NICE!
7. you made your "to do" list on scraps of sticky back canvas...
8. your kitchen table has looked like this for the past two weeks!

Thank you in advance to my darling husband who is prepared to play, giggle and even do the girls hair over the next few days! I love you honey!!!

design mode...

You know you are in full-speed-ahead design mode when you have to resort to this!!! All I can say is when inspiration hits, you go with it regardless of the obstacles...
I have to say, the new release from My Little Shoebox is going to blow your mind!!! Having this wonderful opportunity to create layouts and projects with this brand stinkin' new paper is AMAZING! The colors, the details and of course my favorite... the MINI's!!!

Here is a sneak of what my kitchen table looks like...
and yes, my hubby and girls have resorted to the kiddy table for all meals... can I just say that I have the best husband EVER!!!

Now go ahead... go make something!!!
Oh yeah, and one more thing, see the flower... an exciting tutorial is yet to come!!!

January Sketch...

Hello all! I have been on yet another crafting hiatus due to the holidays, out-of-town company, spending much needed quality time with everyone and have just now had a chance to play with paper in glue! The creative juices are a flowing so everyone better watch out... only kidding!

The extremely talented and fellow My Little Shoebox Design Team member Aphra created this sketch for all of us to run with for the month.
I am really starting to get into sketches, especially when scrappin' in a pinch! So, after printing out her sketch and then setting the timer for 60minutes {my littlest was still napping} this is the end result...
We have a tradition in our family to save all the wrapping paper to only throw the girls in the mist of it and snap a photo for our "thank you" cards. I loved the way this years turned out so much that it deserved it's very own layout. Thank you Aphra!!!
A close up of the presents...
They were backed with My Little Shoebox diecuts and then "wrapped" with double sided ribbon
So... feeling inspired to make your own?
