Mojo Monday 148

Okay, so this is my first Mojo Monday challenge that I'm participating in. AND I'm still using my new Taylor Expressions Key Ingredients Kit. I'm loving it. It's so me! lol!

I used the Daily Designs stamp set from, along with the Daily Designs Sentiments. Such awesome quality stamps.

This sketch was kinda hard for me, not sure I really like what I came up with, but it was good to stretch myself. Hope you enjoy my blog! ;)

Count Down to ACES First Release! 11 Days

I am so excited that it is only 11 days until the release of my first two sets of Amanda's Christian Encouragement Series. Peace and Salvation!

In case you don't know what I am talking about...Erik had a wild hair idea a couple months back and now I am designing 10 sets of cards to encourage people in their Christian walk. Each set will have 5 cards and they will be based on a theme, such as Peace, Salvation, Forgiveness, Love, etc. I will have two new sets available each month for the next 5 months. Each set will cost $12 ~ way less than buying cards from Hallmark! :) I will sell them both here on my blog and also on my etsy shop.

I never imagined I'd be doing something like this. So 11 more days and you'll get to see what I've come up with.

My First Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit

I just began a 6 month membership for the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Monthly Kit Club. I got my first kit in the mail on Saturday and whoo wee! Beautiful! And such fun colors and paper and ribbon, oh my! Here are a couple samples of what I came up with. I had so much fun using this combo!

I also used PapertreyInk's blooming button bits! I love all the button bits stamp sets! PapertreyInk's Tea for Two and Tea for Two Additions along with their matching dies! Ooh I love those too! And I used Taylor Expressions Summer Afternoon.

Happy 2nd Birthday Dalaina!

I can hardly believe my sweet little (and I do mean PEANUT) baby girl is two today! What joy she has brought to our family. Adding a little girl has changed the dynamics of our family in ways we could never have imagined. And what a little package of personality she is! She is funny and sweet and loving and tough. She likes pretty dresses and digging in the dirt. She is talking so much earlier than our boys did and it is hilarious the things she says. Her sweet little whispery voice is like a little bit of magic.

Both of her big brothers adore her and they have so much fun together as long as she isn't turning off the DVD player in the middle of their favorite movie! Dalaina, I am so blessed to be your Mommy. I wouldn't trade you for anything! Hug!

Blessings On Paper August 6th Class Project

This month for our BOP class we will be making a Photo Box! I picked out this gorgeous Bo Bunny paper line called Kitchen Spice. So pretty and summery, I really love it. I think this box will be great to share summer highlight photos. But the color scheme is really flexible so it will work well for all occasions.

The cost for this class is going to be $8.00 and that is for all of your supplies. I know great deal right! ;) I take care of you ladies! ;) Sign ups will begin next weekend, July 24th and 25th at our church's weekend services. Mark your calendars, you don't want to miss this class!
