You're Too Sweet!

Hello everyone,

I hope you have been well and are keeping warm.  Today's share involves taking my paper crafting tools into the kitchen to make some edible Valentines.  That poor little puppy is almost too cute to eat... almost...

These were so much fun to make, and my 4 year old even joined in and decorated some of his own.  They make a great gift... as long as your husband doesn't find them first (or maybe that's just mine?).

For a full how-to including supplies, please pop over to my post at Scrapbooker's Paradise.

Thanks so much for popping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I very much appreciate it!

Big hugs & happy crafting,

So Happy Together

Hello everyone,

I hope you have been well and keeping warm!  I am so happy to say that we are finally over our colds/sinus infections/ear aches/and everything else that has been afflicting us for the last 3 months!  I'm knocking on wood with my fingers crossed - I wouldn't want to jinx us, but it is sooooo nice to be healthy again.  We just have one more Dr. appointment to make sure my son's ear is healing well and then hopefully it is over.  I guess it is now time to take down the Christmas decorations and get caught up on everything else that has been neglected...

I did take some time to clear a spot on my table and make a layout for Scrapbooker's Paradise.  Here is a peak:

For project details and supplies, please pop over to my post at Scrapbooker's Paradise.  Thanks so much for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment.  I really appreciate all your support, especially over the last few months.  I am really looking forward to getting organized and back into a regular routine and catching up with everyone.

Big hugs & happy crafting!

Playing in Paradise - Frosty Winter

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and keeping warm!  It is time for a new Playing in Paradise challenge, and with the new year comes a new format.  Instead of sketches, we will be using themes.  To kick things off, our talented new designer Lee-Anne has chosen a 'Frosty' theme.  Include the word, snowflakes or do a winter inspired project.

For my project, I cheated a bit and cased one of my own previous CAS cards.  I have been 'under the weather' so I'm not sure I would have been able to get a project done otherwise.

Lots of glitter and shimmer on this one:

The team has made some gorgeous projects to inspire you, so pop by the challenge to check them out and get all the details.  I hope you will join in!

Create your own enamel embellishments

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and Santa was good to you!  We have unfortunately been sick with various colds, sinus infections and ear infections through the entire thing.  I want to say that things are finally starting to look up a little, but I am afraid I will jinx us...

I have put together a little tutorial for creating your own enamel embellishments on my Technique Tuesday post at Scrapbooker's Paradise.  In it, I demonstrate how I created this pretty, glossy, translucent flower:
