Bring on summer

 Looking at these photos while we have yet another winter advisor made me really wish for summer!!
The right side is the 4x6 page protectors by WeRMemories. I cheated and put the photos from the same day into these and it will be a double page layout.  You can decorate 1 or several of the 4x6's and add photos to the others. There are several different sizes to choose from to make your scrapping easier.

         All the flowers are made using Cheery Lynn dies. And I added a Candi Dot to the centers.

Bunny Hops

A couple cards from my "Hopping Down the Bunny Trail" class this past week. The Cheery Lynn rose die was used for the flower as well as their doily die. The bunny is a Tim Holtz die and the clouds are Memory Box.

Meet Alley ~ our newest ECCHA adoption cat

                                             She would rather play with ribbon than her toys.
                                                                      Silly kitty

                                                            I love her huge paws.

Alley hung out with me today in the office while I worked on an upcoming class. She stays to herself but will gooble up the attention every time you give it to her. She purrs every time I pet or hold her. So she is a sweetheart who just appreciates being loved.

How many people...

Another prom page for my boy. I had to include this in his album because it was a hoot the day of prom watching all these kids figure out how to tie a tie. The girls won the challenge.

Unhappy Boys

                                                                    Such pouts!!
                When I can not find embellies to match what I am working on.....I paper-piece them. I mimicked the hat my nephew is wearing in the middle.

Bye to Clyde

      Clyde went to his new furever home yesterday. I miss him. He was such a sweet kitty. The new cat in                  residence here now is Daisy so be sure to stop by to meet her. She is a very pretty girl.
       My nephew stopped in Sunday to say goodbye to Clyde before he went on to his new home.

Grandma & Angel

Here is a photo showing you how I stretch my dollar. I just keep cutting the insides out for the next layer. And the matting for the photo is also used to cut out flowers for the layout. So the entire page was just one sheet of My Mind's Eye paper and one sheet of Echo Park paper. The rest of diecutting was with scraps of cardstock.

Cooking Up Sweetness

I had these photos to do into samples for the store from a customer so I figured I had best get them done. He is such a cutey pie.

I made these chocolate treats for all the gals in February's Scrap-til-Midnight and All Day Crop. Just a fun idea I got off Pinterest and I am trying to figure out a way to turn them into something similiar for graduation favors. Give me time....I will think of something.

Bunny Basket

I have been having fun with this bunny die. We used in last Thursday for a make-n-take, I created a class coming up with it and now the cute little basket. Don't you love when you can use your tools over and over? The basket die is a Spellbinders and I just created the square so it is a basket, added some flowers and bling  and poof! Cuteness.

You Brighten my Day

I had boughten the bracket die for a class and since it was still sitting on my work bench....I made another card using scraps I had. The flower is Judy's Blooms by Cheery Lynn. I added a matching Candi Dot to the center and it worked perfect with this card.

Bunny Bar

I saw this fun idea on Pinterest and just had to try it myself. I made the reindeer ones at Christmas for my family so maybe its time to make a litter of bunnies for Easter. lol.   I just used circle and oval dies and I did a heart nose instead of the circle nose that was on Pinterest. Do you gals gets lots of inspiration from Pinterest?

Clyde playing

I can only load one photo to the PT Kitty Tails page so I will just put a bunch from yesterday on here. ha
He played with his catnip toy for near an hour. He is such a sweety. Of course he is being spoiled on Mondays and therefore being a stinker on Tuesdays when he has to be back up front and in/on his cage. It usually takes him until Tuesday evening to resign himself to being back up front. Still loves his belly scratches.

Always Know I Care

Last card from my Cuttlebug 101 class. This one was my favorite. A lot of Cheery Lynn dies were used to create this beautiful card. After the flowers were curled up....they tips were lightly inked with white to soften them. The small, medium and large rose dies were used and the fun centers are from the Build-a-Flower die set. The fancy oval is Spellbinders and the embossing folder is Crop Stop.
