Challenge to use a negative image.

I recently offered to decorate a square for a scrappy friends.  She had 9 pieces and wanted 8 people to take one each and decorate it.  It was a wonderful challenge and I decided to do something with it so I could enter it in Catherine and Cathy Create’s “negative image” challenge.  Isabella (granddaughter) was in my craft room and was quite interested in this so I decided to let her help.  She helped with the painting and stamping (gotta say, I hate to give it away now, haha).  Here is what we came up with


Isn’t that little owl just the cutest and I love to create when I can use a “play on words”.

Cheers and have a wonderful day!

p.s. Why don’t you pop on over to Catherine and Cathy Create and take a look at all the amazing talent!




Funny Isabella

I am so excited about this book for Isabella.  I’ve decided to start narrating little stories about the pictures for her when ever I can.  I completed this layout for a challenge at Stuck On U Sketches.  The Project Life challenge was to create using neon.  This is way out of my comfort zone as I usually use darker colors but I know Isabella is going to love this.


I used alot of my stamps from CTMH for this layout.  I just love how alot of these are perfect for Project Life.

Pop on over to StuckOnUSketches and see all the wonderful talent.  You may be inspired to create something wonderful!

Have a great evening!


March Monthly Challenge – Luck O’ The Irish

March Monthly Challenge - Luck O' The Irish

This PL layout was inspired by Catherine and Cathy Create. We were challenged to create something keeping St. Paddy’s day in mind. I had these wonderful pictures of Isabella. She dressed up for St. Paddy’s Day for daycare and they made crowns. Isn’t she just the cutest?

Pop on over to Catherine and Cathy Create and see all the amazing talent and probably you’ll feel inspired to join this months challenges.

Cheers and have a great evening peeps!

Halloween PL

Who doesn’t like Halloween????  This past year Isabella was Elmo & I have to say that there was never a cuter Elmo!  I was invited to tag along Trick or Treating with her and her mommy and I had a wonderful time.  I am so grateful and honored to be invited to all these momentous events in her life.  Also, it was so much fun to watch her reaction to pumpkin carving…it wouldn’t appear that she was too impressed with the guck that came out of the pumpkin.  Overall, Halloween was alot of fun in our house!


I hope you enjoy these glimpses into Isabella’s life as much as I enjoy memorializing them.  Isabella will always know how much nanny loves her when she looks at these pages I am so lovingly creating.

Cheers peeps and keep on scrapping!


A special moment for Isabella

We went to visit neighbors and the lady had an adorable bunny rabbit.  This was Isabella’s first time seeing a rabbit this close and she got to hold it too.  Needless to say she was quite taken.  She even got to comb it (although I don’t know how much the rabbit liked that haha).  There was so much rain fall that weekend, the water Isabella was running in is someone’s front lawn!  Here is my PL layout commemorating that exciting day.


I am entering this one in Stuck On U Sketches Project Life Challenge – Pocket With a Card.  Why don’t you pop on over and see all the amazing talent and join in the fun!  Here’s the link:

Cheers peeps and keep on scrappin!
