A Quickie... Just wanted to show you my little helper... I picked up Sophie and she got right up on my desk and made herself at home... she looks very cute, but the trouble is I couldn't get anything done... and heaven forbid you move the dog and make her uncomfortable :) so she sat there and I typed over her for about an hour... think she's spoiled ?? Hope you're having a good day... enjoy... Jen

TP mini !!! Yes, this is really made out of tp tubes... this was so much fun to make, so quick and easy... I had to flatten out the tubes under my very heavy dinning table for a couple of days, they really didn't want to flatten out :) I used all paper from DCWV "Mademoiselle", lots of pretty paper in this stack..
Four places to hold more pictures.....
Cool Dude :)
A fold out to hold more pics.. and a birdcage stamp from Michaels...
Filled with pictures of my grandkids...
A little pocket...
with a accordion book...
the pink & black polka dot folders are Teresa Collins...
Love the crown paper...
Four tags for more pictures...
I used my Bind-it All with pink wire, added a little bling and ribbon...
A flower from K & Co. .. bling & Fleur-di -Lis from Jolees...
The End....
Hope you enjoyed seeing my TP Mini... try it yourself.. I know you have tp tubes...:)
Hugs... Jen
I found out why dogs drink out of the toilet,
my mother told me the water is cold in there...
And I'm like... how did my mother know that !!

Sassy Cheryl's 59 ... "Think Spring" was the challenge this week.. I saw this little girl and she made me think of spring, holding her little flower..and the look on her face :) so dang cute !!! I used DCWV "Blossom Song" stack.. a little feather (Michael's) some seam binding I inked with Ranger "Shabby Shutters".. I am trying to get some good pictures of a TP mini album I made... yes I said TP as in toilet paper ( just the cardboard tube) its to dark right now so I will try again tomorrow and hopefully share with you Monday .... I've also been making "yo-yo's" (fabric) and I have a few ideas for those to share ... so much fun stuff to do and so little time :)... Have a great weekend... hugs... Jen
No matter how long the winter is..

Bunny Cookies.. My granddaughter was over a couple weeks ago and she went to the grocery store with me and found the "Bunny Cookies"... she was so excited.. "Grammie.. let's make cookies" and of course I can't tell her no... (what kind of a grammie would I be if I did :) Anyway.. here she is putting he cookies on the pan.. she thought she was really baking (big smile)
Then of course you have to watch them bake...
and then you have to get a picture of eating the cookies...
I had this little strawberry basket that I added a little handmade flower to & a little Easter card.
The cookies were so cute.. I'm not a baker... so Alyssa won't be learning a lot of that from me.. but I can teach her how to cook almost anything and I know we will have a lot of fun in the kitchen :)
Thanks for stopping by... hugs... Jen

Good Morning... See... I told you that you would be seeing the round cards again !!! These are some Easter cards I made with Starform Stickers, they are just like the Peel-Offs.... Here you can sort of see the glitter... and it is so easy to color with Copics.. I embossed the purple card stock with my Cuttlebug "Polka Dot" folder... I also made some envelopes to match with the Wild Card cartridge, it also has envelope liners.. so cool :) Well, I gotta run... have a great weekend..hugs.. Jen
I love spring anywhere, but if I could
choose I would always greet it in a garden..

I hope you like round cards :) I recently bought the "Wild Card" Cricut cartridge and I LOVE IT !!! I found the round doily card and cut out a few ( a lot ) of them... The butterfly is a outline sticker from "Peel Offs" I put it on a special glitter paper and colored it with my Copics... very sparkly in person... Happy Easter stamp from dollar bin @ Michael's..
Butterfly and Fillable Frame from Papertrey Ink...
All of this card was made with leftovers I keep in a container on my desk.. things I was going to use on something else but didn't look good... but they all came together on this card...
Warning: You will be seeing this round card again :)
Have a great Friday... hugs... Jen

I stamped the little banner with a music note stamp using Vintage Photo Distress Ink... and added a button and some twine.... Thanks for stopping by.. Hugs... Jen
