Hello Everyone and Happy Thursday, I did this lo for a challenge over at the My Mind's Eye Blog. The challenge is to pick a advertisement out of a magazine and then make a lo out of the ad. Well I called in my 5 yo son Colby on this one. I gave him several magazines and told him to pick an ad that you want mommy to create a lo on. (I knew if I picked it, it would be what a wanted to do) so this way I had to do what he picked. The ad came from a Woman's Day Magazine Halloween one, the ad is for the National Arbor Day foundation. I think I know why he picked this he was asked at school to adopt a tree, back in Sept. We took a walk and he picked one over by his club house, which is a very different tree, it grows real long then up. We have been going to visit the tree at least once a week, he has noted changes and each time he sees something different. The whole family has been involved in the project. So I hope that gives you an idea of why he picked the ad. So it was a little different but I thought it turned out okay. He was happy with it!!! Everything is 100% My Mind's Eye except the brown Bazzill cardstock and the stamps from Hampton Arts, and the brick stamp from Prima. I used the Cricut to cut the leaves from A Walk in My Garden cut at 1/2, and 1. The title was cut from Street Signs cut at 1 1/2, and 1. The branches are from Camp Out cut at 3, 2, and 1 1/2. The window is from Christmas Cheer cut at 2 3/4. and the girl in window cut from Child Year at 2 3/4. TFL!! Have a WONDERFUL Day!! Dawn

Hello everyone, I know you are thinking what?? St. Patrick's Day cards....well it was like this I only had a few things with me when I was in the car, and I thought I could make these cards and kinda put them together when I got home. So while I was waiting at the bus stop for the kiddos I put together these simple cards. I say simple because if you know me, I don't do simple. Of course the ones with die cuts I did when I got home. I also am making a card holder for my daughter who is in the Army and always needs cards to send to family and friends and this was a start.

Hello everyone I know I have been MIA....well I can explain. I had this lo done last week but left for Georgia to complete the Copic certification class and was unable to post. I did this lo for the Scrap and Stamp Saturdays the whole idea is to use at least one stamp on your lo. Well I used two. It really was nice because I was a stamper long before I ever scrapbooked.....and here lately I hardly ever stamp....and believe me it is not because I am short on supplies..lol!! So when I came across this challenge via Chef Pamela Young I was like yeah!! I really need to incorporate more stamps in my los. Thanks Pamela!!!
