Karma Award

Thanks Tanisha Renee for this award!

The Karma Award: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

Note: I know I don't have a lot of followers, which is fine with me, because I am very content with the ones that chose to actually stop by and listen to what I have to say, and share my family and projects. Also it's very cool to receive an award from someone as cool as Tanisha and to share the same name!

Now here are my picks:
1. Debbie Breedlove
3. Christine
4. Jill
5. Kristy
6. Tracey
7. Leslie
8. Janet

What A mini Vacation!

Happy Memorial Day!

So I just got back late last night from a great mini vacation. So funny because we only drove about 45 minutes away, but, traffic is sooo hectic we decided to just stay at the Best Western the entire weekend

Also, Morgans birthday was Friday, so we celebrated a bit at the house before we left for the weekend. So this was actually a birthday present for him. Happy Birthday Morgan! I can't believe he is eight now, time sure does fly!
We went to Water Country on Saturday, which was a lot more fun than I expected and the kids really enjoyed themselves. Especialy Morgan. I
have never seen him willing to get on so many rides, lol!

Sunday we went to Busch Gardens! It exceced my expectations. I ad listened to so many others in the past that did not care for it (silly me for that) that I did not want to go. Great great park! I think with this one we spent more time playing games than riding, lol. We got there a little too late, (blame to staying up super late the night before). We ran into some traffic as well. Omg, I wish you all could have seen my husband living out his Lebron James NBA dreams! He spent (so he tells me) 60.00 on the 3 point shoot out contest, he did pretty well, but not well enough to win the PS3 (one that he already freaking owns)!! LOL.

Here are some pics of our weekend: Look at that hairdo!

Mommy to my hairdo rescue!

Nice to meet you Bert!

Wow, two in one night!

Hey why not! I am on a roll, may as well keep it going right? Well, first off I would just like to say I am now on Twitter, lol! Follow me! I will just rant random things off, but, hey it's addictive. I thik you can just look up Tanisha Boyd and you should find me.
Okay here's a card I did for our blog at The Shoe. It was my turn to run a challenge and challenging it was, even for myself! You had to do a card using a beach theme. It took me all the way until I thought it was due to do it, simple because I did not know what the heck I was going to do! First off, let me just say, I have sooo fallen in love with Bazzil Cardstocks! So that is what I used for this challenge.


  • Bazzil Cardstock

  • Stickles (Waterfall & Icicle)

  • Doodlebug Braddies (Seashell)

  • Craft n Craftin Glitterstock (Copper)

  • Forgot wo the Stickers were by, and can't find the package ( will up date when I do)

Monorams, Oh My!

So last night, I decided once again, despite my better judgement, to stay up late! Not your eleven o' clock late either, try 2am! Yeah, I am serious, and I was definitely tired, I just could not sleep until this card was done. Had I not finished it, it probably wouldn't have gotten done.

Well this card that I worked on was for a blog I stumbled upon in one of my many google searches, lol. Probably not new to you, but it was to me. It's called The Pink Elephant Challenge, and so far I really like it!

So here is the card that I will be submitting, and this will actually be my very first time submitting to anything other than Iftheshoefitsscrapit! I believe the rule was to use a monogra/letter. So I used the letter "F" as my Monogram letter. I actually stamped a sheet of paper, then cut out the same stamp and cut and popped dotted it on top. I stamped each individual letter so to spell out the word FOREVER. Even though it is a simple card, I really had to use my noggin, lol. Great challenge Pink Elephant!!!

A couple of cards

So, I am finally able to add these cards to my blog. We had a couple of challenges on "If the shoe fits". Now one of these challenges I had to use the colors purple and green, yes, purple and green! I tell you that was a challenge for me. I didn't think I was ever going to figure out how to get those two colors to mesh. Both colors are beautiful by themselves, but together was a whole other foe me, lol! Needless to say, I pulled it off and this was what I came up with.

This next card was for the Mother's Day card Challenge. I had a little bit of scrappers block with this as well, (not sure what's up with me, lol). I thought I would make it plain and simple, well, no that was not the case. One thing led to another, butterflies cames into play and now how the rest goes. Also what I love about this, is I tried something new, I used crackle paint on my stamp, the pink one. I find that it only works well with certain stamps though. So stay tuned to see which stamps I find work well. Make sure you hop on over to "iftheshoefits...scrap it!" for more great challenges and prizes. Happy Scrapping
