Blast from the Past Blog Hop

It's time for another Blast from the Past Blog Hop with Taylor!  It's always fun to break out Cuppie and give him a little color.  This is Love is Sweet and Cuppie is all decked out in Bo Bunny's Sun Kissed paper.  He's a ray of sunshine and sending smooches to a very special girl.  

My daughter Sarah and I say "smooches" daily, whether it be an off to school smooch, a have fun at your friend's smooch or a good night smooch.  Sarah's going away for a week this summer and I don't want her to miss our smooches, so I'm going to hide this smooch in her suitcase.  Shhhh! 
Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoy hopping! ~Patti

Sew Nice!

Last weekend I had the chance to visit my favorite Archiver's store.  It had been a while and I had a gift card burning in a whole in my purse.  You can imagine how dangerous that was.  ;)

Turns out, they had all kinds of new gorgeous patterned paper.  I was in heaven!  And the real  excitement...I actually came home and used it!!!  I am such a hoarder when it comes to patterened paper.  I love it!  All the different patterns and colors and textures...  What if I run out?  And I can't find it again?  Ugh! 

Determined to break my hoarding habit, I got my paper cutter out and got busy!  This is from Bo Bunny's Peacock Lane collection.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  I've used it here with Papertrey's Studio Style.  Studio Style is perfect for us crafty girls to make cards for our crafty friends. 

Found another great crafty set at Archivers.  (But I had a coupon honey!)  This is Hero Art's Sew Artsy set.  It's adorable and sew versatile!  I'm looking forward to finding more time to play with it in the week ahead.  But for now, I'm off to tackle some laundry and cleaning.  Now, there's some fun.  LOL  Have a terrific day!  ~ Patti

The Sky Is The Limit

Today, we celebrate the graduation of Justin's girlfriend, B.  B has been an important part of Justin's life for nearly two years.  She's energetic, light hearted, easy going, a natural beauty and pretty special to him.  B's off to St. Olaf in the fall to study science and will no doubt be missed here.  I'm not sure what the future holds for "them", but I'm sure each will have a brilliant future.

It's interesting to look back on my own life when these milestones pass for my children and their friends.  I lived in California when I graduated high school.  I loved Berkley and was going to be a lawyer.  Makes me giggle now.  ;)
It is exciting though to see a young person dreaming about their future, making their plans and then working to make those dreams a reality.  Papertrey's Up, Up and Away seemed the perfect set to celebrate B's new journey in life.  Coupled with Bo Bunny's  Sun Kissed paper, this card totally fits Bs delightful personality.  I hope she likes it. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Wherever you are, enjoy this beautiful day! ~Patti

No Stamping Required

I've been a lazy paper crafter. ;)   Got out some paper packs with punch out images and played.  I have to admit...it was loads of fun!  No stamping, just designing- playing with paper and embellishments.  Good times! 

This pack is from Crate Paper.  I've had it for a while, so it was good to put it to use. 

It's been a good weekend.  A little work, a little rest and lots of fun just being at home with my hubby and the kids.  It's been so relaxing and just what I needed! 

I hope you're enjoying your weekend too!  Thanks for stopping by! ~Patti

More Mo...

Just two more days and school will be done for the year.  My kids are so excited and I'm excited for them, but my lazy days will be few and far between as I tackle some projects here at home and look for a new job. 

Job hunting can be so intimidating.  Sprucing up the resume, submitting applications, then interviewing and waiting. I hope I'm up for the challenge!

This card features another image from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop.  This girl is adorable.  She looks so content lounging barefoot in the flowers.   I'm jealous!  ;) 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a good one! ~Patti

Level Up!

If you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I have three sons and a daughter.  My youngest son, Jacob, and many of his friends are total gamers.  From board games, to D&D to Wii, they're hooked.  When I saw this image at Mo's Digital Pencil Shop I had to have it! 

This boy looks like my Jacob, especially when he's working on "just one more level, mom".  This card's going into my stash of birthday cards.  I'm sure it will be put to good use for a friend's birthday this summer. 

As for Mo's, I suggest you check it out.  She's got some great images...that would cost a pretty penny in the form of stamps, but are so reasonably priced as digital images.  She sure sold me on them!  ;)
