Made it Myself ~ Monday!

Hi, I just have a quick post today! First of all I want to thank Sandra of 365 Days of Cricut for the beautiful card that she sent me.

she had won my 1000 followers give away and wanted to thank me!  Well, Sandra...thank you for the fab card, and I WILL be looking for a dress to go with it!  ;)

Raquel at Raquel's Designs gave me a blog award,  thank you so much for passing this on to me...well most of know that I have a super hard time picking who to pass this along to, because I follow so many blogs!  So this one is up for grabs, but only if you use your cricut at least 3 times a week.  And I 'm not going to tell more about me, mostly because I can't think of anything new that you don't already know about me!

Now, for the project that I'll be posting for Alex's You Had Me At Craft "Made it Myself Monday"

I just wish the picture showed how cute this really was!  I hid blankets, onsies, and toys inside this diaper cake!  I was a center piece, then a "guess how many items in the cake" game, then a gift for the mom to be!
This diaper cake is the most viewed post of  my blog.  I think that's funny since my blog is really about paper crafts!  So if you have something you want to share, just link it up at Alex's!

I'm a Scrapbooking Geek!

Welcome to EAD Designs Monday Blog Hop!  Did you see if you won last weeks blog hop goodies?  Make sure you head over to EAD's blog to see.  Plus in order to be eligible for this weeks giveaway you will need to leave a comment there and on everyone's blog in the hop ( there's only 7 of us).  You probably got here from Lauren's place, isn't she so creative!  For today's project I made a door hanging for my craft room...

I used 3 frames from the dollar store.  I was able to remove the metal that was glued to the front and the stand from the back.  Then painted the frame black.  Once the paint was dry, I added the vinyl designs to the front of the glass and the words to the quick and easy!

did you catch that I said I bought 3 frames, but you only see 2?  Well, being the impatient girl that I am, I didn't let the glue dry long enough on the ribbon holding the frames together.  As I held it up, it fell apart and cracked the glass on one of them.  So then I gently put them back together and left it over night!

I also wanted to share with you, that I received two Blog Awards!  One is from Stacey at Staceys Creative Corner  however I went to her blog and I couldn't find it.  I think her post were deleted when blogger went down.  I'm only letting you know about it, because I don't want her to think I ignored her!  The other one is from my SWEET Friend Sandy at Sandy from Ukiah.  I had the honor of meeting her in person at Emma's home several months ago!  She is amazing and talented too!

So the rules are to tell 8 things about myself...hmmm, what could I tell you that you don't already know about me...
1.  I have been married to the most supportive man for 25 years this summer.
2.  I have expensive taste, yet I will always try to get the same look or item for less. 
3.  My mind is always swirling with ideas, but there is never enough time to get them done.
4.  My favorite day is Sunday, spending time with family and friends in worship.
5.  I love to camp as long as there are flushing toilets and showers!!!
6.  I love the ocean ~ am very jealous of my daughter, who lives 14 blocks from the beach and rarely goes!
7.  Will drop anything I'm doing if my husband or brother in law says "let's go to Disneyland"! (Sandy it is the happiest place on earth, especially when your childern are grown!  hehehe)
8.  My husband and I are trying to plan a 4-6 week road trip in the next couple of be continued!

Now I'm suppose to give this away to 15 bloggers...this is so hard, oh my goodness this hard because I follow (love) so many of you!
