So…not only did I make goody bags for my son’s kindergarten class BUT…I let my kids help. WOW!! IT TOOK FOREVER! They argued who would do the glueing of the bunnies and then who would do the cuttlebugging. I tried to limit my daughter to putting the pop up dots on the bunnies and my son to the cuttlebug and glueing. I love doing these types of projects but next time will do them while “their” asleep. LOL

I am trying to make a few pages a week and I had actually made the so sweet cupcake for a card. Of course I made it too big the first time, so I finished it for a page. This picture was taken in 2008 after I had my daughter. How the time fly’s.
In this collage picture, my daughter was 5 months old and my son was almost 4. This was BEFORE they fought all the time..oh I wish I still had those days. I didn’t want to do anything too fancy because the pictures on the collage say enough for me.
Again, I tried the dash’s and I am now hooked. I’ve used these same dots in several cards. I really like them. If I really dig into all of my paper, I think I have LOTS of dot paper. I need to use them up. LOL
Easter bunny!! I HAD to add dots to the bunny…I don’t know why..I just did. I had a piece of crinkled paper and that’s what I used for the background. White ribbon and the bunny is now happy.
I have to admit that I have seen lots of projects online where people are using the white pens to make stitches. I thought I would give it a try on a few things and see how it turns out. I like it! I seen the checkered yellow paper and it screamed BASKET to me. I will probably make a bigger one for a page later. (jung-a-low bung-a-low by the paper studio). I used dollar tree foam stickable stickers for the eggs. I think this is one of the cutest cards I have made this easter.
I love this bunny! I used stickles for the poka-dot and glitter bellys. I like changing every card I make, which makes it more time consuming, but it’s a habit of mine. I used some random paper as well as paper from jung-a-low bung-a-low baby(the paper studio) and the super paper pad(american girl crafts). I really like both pads and need to use them more. I have more easter cards to come as well as a few pages to make this year as well. Happy early easter to everyone!
I decided to make a few of my co-workers goodie bags filled with chocolate!! They all appreciated them . I love the hello kitty cartridge because the cards are really easy to make and QUICK!!

As I have been going through my photos for scrapbooking..I ran across this card I made last year. I used stickers from Hobby Lobby as well as basic cardstock. It was a 5 minute card but the birthday girl loved it.

I have been taking some time off of my project making as I reorganize my photos. I seemed to have my pictures in order and then when its time to make a page I am looking for this or that. I have several birthday's to catch up on but I need to find the invitations for the page..and I know I have them somewhere in my mess of a room. :) LOL I got a deal at Micheal's a couple of weeks ago on accordian files (1.29 each!) so I am grouping pictures and matching pieces with them so when I want to make a page..its doesnt take me as long. I love making cards and need to focas this year on my pages. I work alot and wish I had more time to spend in my scrapbooking room. Thanks for following me if you are. I get sooooo excited when I see a new follower. Ill keep the posts coming. Nova :)
