Sweet Gracie....

My sister in law Emily and her husband Tim adopted a sweet baby girl last week and her name is Gracie. To welcome her to the family I made her a few goodies. Enjoy!

This is a hat box My sister in law Melissa gave me. She just knew I could do "something" with it! I will be putting lots more goodies and gifts inside this and mailing it to Gracie. I've included the before photo and some close ups of the top. I used Stampin up papers, I have tons of older papers that I need to use! I also used my Cricut for the name. Mermaid Tears flowers, American Crafts rub ons, Fancy Pants frame, Added a bit of ink and ribbon and there you go, I have a sweet box.

I just love the look of this paper! The inside of the hat box was pale green and white dots, so I didn't alter it.

Here is an Album I did for her.

And a few pages in the album.

I was in the mood for Chocolate and my Stash was empty soooooooooo..................

I made another one of those cakes! Someone take the recipe away from me. If you want to make one for yourself I posted the recipe over at Cottage Croppers. Best Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe, its at the bottom of the post on pg 1.

Its a Kraft Food Magazine Recipe, If you don't get this magazine you should head over to Kraft Foods and sign up! It a FREE Magazine packed with lots and lots of great tips and recipes.

It's been busy around here the last week. We had 4 family members with birthdays, Craig and I just had our anniversary on Sunday and Next week is Katelyns Spring Break. So It doesn't look like things will be slowing down anytime soon.

I was just at Croppers Cottage and they have TONS of new stuff in! Check out the cool Extreme Boy papers and Salsa Celebration by Junkitz!!! Junkitz is the April Sponsor for the DT at the Cottage! We will be working with the Salsa Collection! Its bright and happy. I see some summer pages!

I've been working on some layouts and other projects for Scrapbook Obsessions. Lots of fun with the new Daisy D's Chasing Butterflies papers. This line is so fun, it reminds me of when I was a kid. So summer looking! So be on the lookout for them, I'll be posting them sometime April.

Scrapbook Obsessions......

Thats what this hobby is.... an Obsession!

If you haven't stopped by Scrapbook Obsessions now is a great time,
They are getting the April 2007 Kit ready to ship! Take a look!
Here are a few items I created with the amazing March 2007 Kit.

This is a Door Sign for my son's room. I love the papers in this kit, the blues and greens are great for boys & Girls! Now my girls each want a sign for their room. I used a canvas for this. Painted the canvas and used rub-ons and lots of ink!

Okay, if your like me you alter all these really neat things... then never know what your going to do with them. Well I am now decorating my Scraproom with most of them! As you can tell this is my new ink storage. I found this case at the local thrift store. I removed all the hardware before I covered it. And my #1 glue that I use for altered Items...... is KI MEMORIES GLOO its the best glue I've found for altering things. Now it dries fast but it holds!!!

Last but not least is the album cover I made for my son. This was a white album I got at CKC Nashville, last year. I used Walnut Ink Crystals
(FYI a little goes a long way) from Scrap Arts and dyed the cover.
After I added the rub ons I used Krylon Matte Finish spry so they wouldn't flake off.
