JUGS #13 Challenge

Happy Dec. 30th!! Where oh WHERE did this year go?? (and WHY didnt it take those 40 pounds I wanted it to! HA!- it is ok I always got 2010! LOL!!)

Ok on with the share...
This challenge is for JUGS (JUGS13-Using a template) .. you all KNOW how I LOVE templates!

I tried a new one from the digi chick designed by Kelleigh Ratzlaff I LOVED this one when I saw it.. Playing Cards #2.. There are some GREAT templates and LOTS of fun digi kits at the site.. I am going back for SURE! :)

Here is my take on it-

Got to use my YUMMY new BasicGrey Sugar Rush.. LOVE that new line...

I am off to finish up some DT work.. YEAH Scrappin Mojo selected me to be a January Guest DT member.. so EXCITED!! AND I am working on a box using my NEW SCAL program.. I got mine from CanadaCraft!
I LOVE it.. so easy and cuts like a DREAM!! :)

Tuesday Shares!!

Happy Tuesday!! How was your holiday? FABULOUS I hope!! Ours was really nice... We went down to see family on the 24th for just the day.. got home about 12:30am... then straight to be for us all so SANTA could come! :) Then we spend the 25th here.. in pjs just enjoying the day! Then my mom and brother came for dinner! Later that night we watched Polar Express.. and Justins movie he made! :) (my little director that he is! He and Amanda stared in it!)

I gotta share the link if you dont mind! They put this together in 2 days... No script.. Justin said he is better at winging it! :) and then he did the editing.. (Ignore my MESSY hall... next time he needs to let mom know he is filming so the laundry and boxes of sorting stuff out can be moved! ;)


Anyway it was a PERFECT day!!! Everyone loved their gifts!! and I got LOTS of photos!! Hoping to get scrappy next week!!!

Ok on with some shares!!!

Here is the ornament I made for the grandparents (and me) this year!

This year the kids and I made LOTS of tags... Next year I may start in July and make EVERYONES! hee hee!! :) Here are just a few of what we made..

My mom called me on Dec. 23rd.. at 5pm.. as we were going to dinner.. asking if I could make up my cousin Molly a lady bug goodie for the next day.. (if I had time!) I didnt think I would.. then the ideas wouldnt leave my head! HA! so that night and early the 24th (before we left!) I got this put together for her! :)

I will leave you with this photo... THANKS if you made it this far... our lights.. (before 36 were stolen an Steve took things down and moved a tree!)

I have LOTS more photos to share.. but will wait... LOL!! I got the SCAL program for my cricut.. so I am off to CUT CUT CUT today!!! :) I feel all Valentineish now! HA HA!!!
Have a GREAT day... THANKS for stopping by!

Happy FRIDAY!!

7 days... til the BIG day... are you READY?!!! We are just down to gift wrapping!!!

Today the kiddos got out of school! All teacher gifts were handed out so I thought I would share with ya what we gave out!!! There are lots of photos.. so THANKS in advance for visiting! :)

Justin took starbucks gift cards to all his middle school teachers.. he said I couldnt make anything girly... so I made these... there was no glitter or sparkle ANYWHERE.. I dont know how I survived! HA!

Amanda has 2 teachers who split teach.. so she and I made them up captured card cases (YES they got to have glitter!) I made the box.. Amanda created the ornament for the top!

Side View-

Wanna see what is inside~ this altered post it note and RSVP pen-

also had candy (I had more in there.. but for photos sake I didnt stuff it! HA!)... and 2 gift cards! I hope they liked them!

STILL WITH ME!! :) I also made up 2 of the mini pizza boxes.. LOVE these! One for her reading teacher.. stuffed with candy and a gift card!

Side View-

This was for a gal that works at the school.. who is just the SWEETEST.. always says HI to Amanda and gives her hugs.. so we wanted to SURPRISE her with a goodie!!! Again candy and a gift card inside!

PHEW! a big THANKS if you made it this far!!!! I have lots of things I am working on yet! But feel no STRESS! SOOO I will be back with some tags that I made... (I am on a tag making kick this year!! )
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! THANKS for stopping by!!!!

Tags... to share!

Happy Monday!!! Hope you all had a WONDERFUL weekend! We sure did.. saturday took Justin out xmas shopping to finish his list! We did ~ YEAH! I think I am offically DONE now.. just waiting for stuff to arrive I ordered online! YEAH! and yesterday we had our friends over for our xmas exchange.. it snowed a bit.. so the kids were happy.. I hope it is done now til xmas day.. :) Well xmas day at 6pm.. so my mom can make it home safe after dinner... that isnt to much to ask is it! LOL!! :)

Ok on with my share... I have been making tags.. I like to make them for some of the packages.. I am THINKING maybe all next year.. we are about out.. and thought.... hmmm I have so many supplies why not.. I dont think Steve believes me!!! :) But hey I gotta a year now right! LOL!!!

Here are 2 I made up.. not even sure how I got this photo but I love you can see the sparkle! :) Even the SPICA pen showed up on these! LOL!! (but not below..go figure!)

They are my friday challenge at MOJO.. if you want to come play along we would LOVE to have you! :)

This next one is for my sweet girl.. she LOVES Hannah.. I found some wrap last year.. and the tags.. so I put them away for this year! Whipped her up this tag.. need to make a couple more for her! :) You cant see it BUT IRL.. I added my spica pen around the center Circle.. it adds a little sparkle.. hard to capture on film.. darn it! :)

That is under the tree now.. I wonder how long it will take her to find it.. and the best part.. she will LOVE the tag as much as the gift.. she LOVES creative goodies!!! :)

Hope your having a GREAT day... and wonderful HOLIDAY TIME!!!
I am off to make more tags, gift card holders, and Xmas cards.. I THINK I have my idea!! :)
Happy Holidays!! THANKS for stopping by!
