I had a very nice Birthday. Ate way too much food, cake and ice-cream, but I guess that's what Birthday's are for!! (= We watched the American Idol Finale last night. Do you watch? Who do you want to win? I'll be happy either way, but my daughter REALLY wants Lauren to win! (=
Onto a little project with my new Pinwheel die. LOVE these cute little pinwheels!!
The sentiment reads: You spin me right round.
Secured the pinwheel to a stick and put in a vase!! Added some jelly beans and twine. Makes a
cute little gift!
And talking about gifts here is a gift I ordered for myself!! (= It's a cute purse/camera bag from Jo Totes!
TO ME! (= Yes, another year has gone by and I'm another year older. I certainly do not feel my age, but it's hard to believe I'm ( I can hardly say it) 39. O.K, now you know. LOL. Time certainly does fly by when your having fun! (=
Have you heard of Pinterest? I'm sure you have. These fun pics were taken from there.
Some fun subway art which is all the rage right now!
And finally here is a card I made. Sentiment reads Blowing you kisses. Funny story... I actually saw a giveaway on FB for these cute pinwheel dies. I put down my name and went to the website lil inkers. I just thought they were SO CUTE and had to get them. So I just got my order in the mail and that same day I found out I won them. REALLY??? I NEVER win anything! I'm hoping they will swap them for their flag dies, but I'm not sure yet. O Well.
I've been seeing so many cool projects made from pallets recently. Here are just a few:
I thought the planting idea looked cool so my husband put this together in our backyard...
The plants were just planted so I'm sure it will start to fill in soon.
Here are a few more shots of the yard.
I cannot take credit for any of it! (= It would all be my husbands work. He is the green thumb in the family.
I think my next pallet project may be a headboard. I'm planning on painting my room (grey) in the next month or so and I'm thinking that might be a fun added touch!!!
Here are some laminated alpha cards I made for my daughter. I started with some alphabet paper:
Cut all the letters out
ran them through a laminating machine
Punched a hole and added a key ring.
They are just perfect to put in your purse and pull out when you need something to entertain your little one. Also, when you turn them over there are lines to draw on. Just use a dry erase marker! Simple and Cute!! (=
Here is a card using Unity's May KOM which I just got in the mail. SO many fun images!
I used up just a few of my scraps I have laying around. The musical notes with the heart are from this months Unity kit. The little birdie is a cute little rub on and the little notes going up are from a MFT set. I also used an SU heart punch and rounded a couple of the corners. TFL! (=

Very Clean and Simple...
Delaney had her last day of preschool this week. WOW, did that fly by fast. The youngest definitely seems to grow up faster. They had a great program of singing and a fun slide show of all the kids. All three of my kids went to the same preschool and had the same teachers. It's hard to believe we are all done with that chapter. On our way home from the program Delaney got very sad and said her heart was breaking and she was going to miss her teachers. It was so sad, but the next morning she woke up and said her heart was starting to tape up!! So sweet.
I made this card for the Unity Challenge. The stamp is from a past Unity KOM. I added some lace, seam binding and MS punch. The paper is from Lilybee designs and the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.
