Birthday for my friend Brie!

My last days in Las Vegas I was able to hang out with my old co-workers from the Clark County Coroner's Office.  I found out how much I missed that place.  I loved the work and loved my co-workers even more.  The last days there I was able to celebrate my friend Brie's Birthday down on the strip.  Enjoying good food and good company is always worth the wait!
I hope you enjoy my creation, I definitely had fun with it.
Most of the paper and accessories are from an unknown source. 
The stamp is from CTMH Piece of Cake and Tea Time
Ink: Pacifica and Archival Black along with Black embossing powder (CTMH) 

I hope you enjoyed this creation.
Thanks for looking!

My boy is getting so big!

I just wanted to say a big Happy Birthday to my big boy Thomas, he's 2 years old today!  I can't believe how fast time flies when you're having fun.  Even though we had to have his birthday party here in Vegas without Daddy, we'll have to celebrate again when we get back to Japan.
I made his birthday card for him and it's a good thing I took a photo before he got ahold of it, because he was throwing a little bit of a terrible 2's fit and ripped part of it.
So here's his 2nd Birthday card.
The both papers are from the You Rock level 2 paper pack from CTMH.
The vellum (unknown)
Stamps: Delightful Alphabet, Enjoy Life, Shining Star, Wishing Star (CTMH)
Ink: Indian Corn Blue, Goldrush, Sunflower, Silver and clear Detail Emboss (CTMH)
Brads (unknown)

The Birthday boy's cupcake tier, Spongebob's nose was missed...

He wanted that cupcake!


Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed.

Soon to be working...

Hi all, just thought i'd give a little heads up as to why i've been absent.  I haven't had any of my stuff to really work on any cards or papercrafts, but soon, yes soon, I will have some of my goodies.  My wonderful husband is mailing me some of my much needed things so that I can work on crafts while i'm here in the states, waiting for the crazy that is Japan to subside. 
If you noticed, yep I changed up the page a little bit.  I have to have a little change every now and then.  I hope you like.

Hope you all have a great day.
