Refrigerator Magnets

Good Morning All,
Here is a project I've been wanting to do for awhile. I'm not sure where I saw this but it's really cute, simple and cheap. I bought these bags of clear rocks at the Dollar Tree for $1. Cut out a 1 inch circle with my EK Success circle punch and used my Tombow mono adhesive and covered the back of the rock then simply stuck down my 1 inch circle. I found that smaller prints look better and I also found that once your paper is stuck...it's stuck LOL. If you try to move your paper, you'll get air bubbles...boo. So I hope you enjoy this project...good timing with school starting and all those papers coming home.
Hugs, Susan

Throwback Thursday Challenge - Favorite Holiday

Hi All...This week for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge she used the Wildcard cartridge which I don't have. So...I used Stretch Your Imagination and Paper Dolls Dress Up. Halloween isn't necessarily my favorite holiday...but I love fall and this reminds me of my favorite season. I hope you all have a great weekend. Let me know what you think of my card...I love critiques. I'm loving my Gypsy...it is helping me grow creatively along with the help from my scrapbooking sisters on the web.

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #32 - Summer Destinations

This was a wonderful trip for Carl and I. I will never forget it. This was in July of 2002. Carl had just gotten back from a one year tour in Kunsan, Korea. That was a hard year and this was a much needed vacation. I hope you all enjoy my scrapbook page...I sure enjoyed making it.

Christmas in July Challenge #2

This challenge is for cardztv.blogspot.com. Mary asked us to make a card using a snowman. I really challenged myself on this one. I didn't use my Cricut at all. I used some good old fashioned stencils that I bought a long time ago before the Cricut was ever born :) I hope you like it.

Throwback Thursday Challenge - Animal Theme

Hi All...this week Emma at creativetimeforme.com has a challenge using any kind of animal. I had to really doctor this little squirrel up. When you cut it out...it's not very cute. It's from Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I think it turned out pretty cute...not one of my favorites. Everybody have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Throwback Thursday Challenge - Baby Theme




Hi Everyone... This is my entry for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge. Her challenge this week is to make something that has to do with babies. I don't own the "New Arrival" cartridge so I used my Everyday Paper Dolls, Plantin Schoolbook and Walk in my Garden. I think it turned out cute. I've been trying to think outside the box lately and see if I can't get some creative juices flowing again. Hope you like it. Have a great 4th of July. We will be celebrating my mom and dads 50th wedding anniversary Saturday. I'm looking forward to that. Bye all.

Pink, Brown, Orange & Green


Good Evening All... I've been busy crafting and having a relaxing day. I'm going to give this card to my mom. Her dog, Daisy isn't doing very well. She's 14 years old.
Also, Robyn over at mypinkstamper.com has given a challenge to use the colors pink, brown, orange and green. This is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy. Have a great night.
