May the Force be with You!

Don't you just love Star Wars? It's a classic movie that will never die. I've seen it I don't know how many times, I was just a little kid when it first came out.
Yoda was probably by far my favorite character!
LSHD has a really cute pattern called the MASTER that looks like Yoda.
Check out what I did with the pattern.

I have to say he turned out pretty good.
Me thinks Yoda I like!
He's up for auction right now, just click HERE to bid on him.
Thanks for dropping in.
Blessings.

Now on to my cute little Halloween Party Project.
I used the Boo Crew Pattern set and created these cute little treat bags for my kids teachers this year. Teachers deserve to be recognized and rewarded for all their hard work with our children during the year. So, what better way than to make cute little treat bags for them.
I bought these little bags at Hobby Lobby or Michaels, can't remember which one and they came in such vibrant colors. Added the cute little ghosts from LSHD, name tags and a little twine and BAM...a cute treat bag for those goodies!!
Next on the list is Emily!

I do have blog candy...I just couldn't find it to post it. I am giving away a set of 3 stick/hat pins to use for scrapbooking or cardmaking. This will be surprise!! LOL.
Thanks for stopping by.
Blessings.

Think Pink!

Hello friends!
Wanted to share my border/mat set with you. I may be making more sets like this if they go over well. Any thought would be greatly appreciated.

I used the Think Pink Pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs for this set.

On the border I stickled the think pink in baby pink, so it has a little shimmer to it.

Isn't the bear just adorable? I love the color pink. The pattern set is for Breast Cancer Awareness, but is very versatile. You can see the way that I have used it here. It's for a girly girl that "Thinks Pink"!
Thanks for dropping in today. If you would like to go bid on this darling set, click HERE.

Show me some love and leave a comment.
Don't forget that LSHD is having their Halloween blog hop tomorrow. I'm in this and I'll be having some blog candy. So drop by!
Have a great day!
Blessings

Fall Tear Bear and Pumpkins!

Hello friends!
I'm a bit under the weather this week. This old weather, no matter how much I enjoy it...always brings the yuckies with it!
I wanted to share my pumpkin set with you today. This is from the Harvest Mouse Pattern set from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. The tear bear is my own creation and a pattern was not used in making it.
How many of you have your pumpkings carved and setting out already? We do!!! My little boy couldn't wait to carve his pumpkin this year. He loves this time of year too! Our outside is all decorated with many pumpkins...I'll have to post a pic of all of them.



 
Anyway...here is my creation for today. The pumpkins were made with cardstock, dry embossed in my cuttlebug and then distressed with ink. Next I added some prima flowers to complete the look.
The big pumpkin has the little harvest mouse peeking over it. Her and the tear bear are becoming fast friends...they even have matching hair bows.
If you would like to bid on this set click HERE!
Thanks for stopping by today. Leave me some love, I enjoy hearing from you!!

My 1st Explosion Box

Hello Friends!
I hope everyone is having a FANtastic day!!
Today I want to share my very first explosion box with you. It was super easy to cut out with my handy, dandy cricut expression.
Decorating it was a whole different story though. Let me tell you there is a lot to decoration on of these little boxes.

The box actually measures 4 x 4 inches when it is all closed up.
I've used DCWV paper pack to complete this, can't get enough of there cardstock. It is the best to work with!!
Tags, jewels, ribbon have been added all through this, along with many 3 dimensional cardstock stickers. I love Halloween and have a big stash of things that I can use.
The cute little bears that I have used are from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. They are from the pattern Rough Edge Bear pattern. Just click on the high lighted words to be taken to them.
I do take custom orders if anyone is interested. I'd like to make a few of these up for Christmas. They'd make wonderful Christmas presents.
Come on over and bid on this one by clicking HERE.
I know you are waiting to see some more pics...sooooooo...here they are!
Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
Blessings.

The cat's outta the bag!

Good Thursday morning to everyone! I hope your day is starting out as beautiful as mine is. It is supposed to be 80 degrees today with lots of sunshine. I can certainly handle that kind of weather.
Today I want to share my first "official" design team project for LITTLE SCRAP of HEAVEN DESIGNS.

I used the cat from the Halloween Bear Collection, you get 12 different bears in this collection and they are all fabulous!!
This paper piecing would make a great title, tag, or card topper.
I used cardstock from the Recollections, Midnight Magic cardstock pack from Michaels. Bear and mat was cut from my cricut and then layered. There are 3d stickers, jewels, and a stamped image that I colored with copic markers.
I'd love for you to come over and bid on it. Just click HERE! FREE SHIPPING on this lil' spooky. 
Thanks for dropping by. Tell your friends to come on by...I can see a give away coming if I reach 200 followers. Come on and share my blog. 
Have a super, wonderful, blessed day!
