I got this idea from a card I saw on 2 Peas. Lal pointed it out to me today and I remembered I had it "bookmarked". The background paper is Creative Imaginations, the polka dot paper is Bo Bunny Front Porch and the black paper behind the heart is Foof A La. I also used a Jenni Bowlin "bingo card" and journaling sticker. I stamped an Autumn Leaves flourish and then hand cut it out, The heart is Cricut cut; George cart, Prima Daisy, Junkitz button and gingham ribbon. Also used my Technique Tuesday stamps for the "stitching".This one was inspired by a LO on sb.com, I believe. I used Elsie Riley paper and Scenic Route grid paper. Brakcets are Sizzix cut. I used my Elsie Riley alpha stamps I got yesterday at HL for $1!!! Stamped on white cardstock with Cat's Eye and then cut them out. Used Paper Studio cardstock alpha stickers in black and some star rubons I got at 911 a while back. Hand written journaling on strips I hand cut. TFL:)

I finally got around to using some of the papers in my Wild Asparagus paper pad I got at HL. I am loving those papers:) Other things used: BG flourish rubon, Lil' Davis Crillion stamp, Lil' Davis chipboard alphas, Prima Sprites and Isabella, Paper Studio cardstock alpha stickers, some lace, some buttons and some brads I got in the Target Dollar Spot.

This one was inspired by a LO on 2Peas. The green background paper and the big dot paper are Basic Grey Color Me Silly. The orange and pink polka dot pp is MME Everyday Tango...Doodlebug Simply Sweet cardstock alpha stickers and Birthday cardstock stickers, Paper Studio cardstock alpha stickers, 7 Gypsies journaling card, Lasting Impressions chipboard stars, Autumn Leaves flourish stamp, Studio G star cluster stamp. TFL
This next one is a pic of Victoria last year. We bought her this Cinderella dress up costume for Christmas. Here she was dancing with Steve in the kitchen...too cute:) Finally got around to scrapping this. I did the pic in sepia. This is also a lift off of 2 Peas. Paper is MME Bohemian. I used my Lil' Davis crillion stamp set to make the "design" in the upper left corner; stamped on MME Bohemian solid paper and then cut it out. I think the pp with the music notes is Lil' Davis, chipboard swirl is Fancy Pants Big Chipboard, chipboard letters are Lil' Davis, rubons are MM-white Heidi , pearl brads by Marcella by Kay and a piece of lace I got from Dana on our private site. I dry brushed with a light blue paint and then used my Autumn Leaves journaling stamps. The journaling is part of the lyrics to a song by Lee Ann Womack called "I Hope You Dance".
So I actually used quite a few things from my stash that I'd had for a while; the paper for one, the chipboard letters, the pearl brads and the Fancy Pants swirl. Another good thing...using up some of my stash:)

Oh, and these really cool new Autumn Leaves stamps sets. They were only $1.99!!! There was like eight different sets, but some I didn't care for and some I already had something similar:)Well, I've got lots to do today. Last minute things to accomplish for tomorrow and I gotta run to my mom's and take her grocery shopping. Busy day. I'll upload pics from the party as soon as I can.

We have another wet morning. We have been getting so much rain; at least more than we are used to.
I spent Saturday over at my mom's and my cousin went by with his wife and their new baby. He is so tiny and the cutest thing ever. I had seriously been getting the baby urge and couldn't wait to see him and hold him...I think I have it worse now:(
I hadn't seen my cousin in a while. He is in El Paso going to school for the border patrol. He will be done in October. He was just home for the long weekend and to see the baby cause he wasn't home for the birth:(
Sunday I went by Michael's to use my 50% off coupon and as I was leaving the store I checked in the "cage" at the front with the Sizzix dies. Last week they had alpha sets marked down to $40. Well, they were marked down to $9!!! I picked up the upper and lower case Doodleblock that I had been wanting forever:)
Yesterday I went by a different one and picked up Ransom for $9 as well. I wasn't able to find the Fun Serif I saw last week so I am going to try to hit the last one I didn't get to and see if they have anything left.
Went by 911 and picked up the Rusty Pickle Mayflower and Pirate Princess papers. Can't wait to use them.
I am in the process of planning Victoria's bday party for this weekend. There is a party place on Bandera/Guilbeau; next to Scrapbook Heaven. They offer a Rock Star make over party theme; perfect for the Hannah Montana theme Victoria wanted:) It's $15 per child so I have to call today and make sure we can get in for Sunday.
Well, I've got lots of catching up on housework and laundry to do today after the three days off. Hopefully I'll get some scrapping time later today. I still have not been able to install my new pritner software:( I think I'm going to have to get someone to come look at the computer to get it on.
