Good Morning... Hi everyone, well, I don't have to be at work till 1:30 so I am doing some updating !! I made this Easter card over the weekend.. I have some "Crafty Secrets" images and I have been dying to use them (more Easter cards to come) . I stamped the little corner chipboard piece with my favorite green ink, but it's a little hard to see. I also put out a few decorations around the house.. we will be celebrating at my brother's this year so I didn't get ALL of my stuff out.. maybe next year when I get used to working full time and not having time to do anything else :(... Enjoy the rest of your day... Jen

A Day at The Beach.... I love, love, love this page.. I didn't at first because it really needed something in the upper right corner & then I found this little sand castle at work (Michael's) .. it fit perfect (so happy) ... Joe and his mom and dad went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and then to the beach. The color in the pictures is so good.. so blue.. I just had to scrap them ( sorry Anna ).
Hope you are all having a good Saturday, I'm off to work (would rather stay home and scrap)... I hope to get some cards made when I get home.. I have some cute Easter stuff that is waiting to be used :).. Jen

My Dog Rex... Oh... I really wish you could see this in person, it is so darn cute ! (if I do say so myself) Joe and his mom and dad went to the animal shelter and brought home a 92 lb. German Shepherd. Joe named him Rex.. like T- Rex (ahhhh !) But he couldn't get him right away because as Joe put it... " They have to cut off his tenders" before he could come home !!! It looks to me that they have become best buds already :) I used Basic Gray "Lime Rickey", Sassafrass and Bazill paper. Rex was cut out on the Cricut, Tear Drop font and I think the other letters are from Daisy D's... and a few extras from my stash.. I had today off and got to look at all of my favorite blogs.. it's been so long and they all had a ton of stuff that gave me a lot of ideas, now I just need the time to do everything I want to do.. (don't we all) Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week... Jen

Mojo Monday 129 on Friday... Holy Cow Man... I can't believe it's Friday already !! I finally got the Mojo card done and even did a couple more :) I just love it when I can come in my scrap room and go through all of my paper and stamps and all of the hundreds of other things I have in here... it's heaven (BIG SMILE) I have some very cute pictures of my grandson and his new dog, so I can't wait to get those scrapped !
All scraps of course, some clip art and I added some Copics.. and Stickles... The card says "When Irish Eyes are Smiling"
I'm done with the St. Patty's day cards and now on to Easter, I have a lot of stamps that are waiting to be inked !! Have a great weekend & thanks for stopping by..... Jen

Mojo Monday 128 ... Hi everyone... I had today off and I didn't do a darn thing :) but I did finally get the Mojo card done. It was a little challenging because I wanted to do a St. Patricks Day card but I'm not very fond of the green.. I did find some cute clip art and did a little coloring with my copics... I don't have any St. Patty's stamps, I guess I will have to look for some cute ones.. I haven't gotten to my Papertrey Ink stamps yet.. not sure what I will do with them but the wheel's are turning in my little pea brain so I'm sure I will come up with something... I used all scraps and my Spellbinders...
Hope you are all having a good week and thanks for stopping by... The Michaels big grand opening is this weekend and I am really looking forward to it... I know it will be a lot of fun... See ya'all soon.. Jen
