I made these Christmas tags for a Tag Swap.

The picture was taken by my friend Michelle (Ü) and you can see all the other tags on her blog right HERE. I made fifty of these tags. Since I had a month to make them it wasn't all that bad.

Scrapbooking on Canvas

Some people call this Wall Art or Scrapbooking on Canvas. I used an artist canvas. The size that I used is 8 x 10. I first painted the canvas with acrylic paint. I applied mod podge for a sealer.
I then applied my paper and pictures with mod podge. After I applied all papers and pictures I then put another layer of mod podge all over the entire canvas.
(On the Mia canvas I did not put mod podge on the picture)
The flower on Mia's canvas is made from canvas material. I used the Tim Holtz flower die and I painted it with acrylic paint. I also covered that with mod podge.
Ezekiel and Mia are my little sweet grandkids.

Kai's Baptism

Kai and Grandpa
Jon, Marshall, Sarai, Tyler, Jamie, Brandon, Kai, Aubrey, Grandma, Grandpa.
Dottie, Steven, Kylie and Kaylin.

We were lucky enough to attend our grandson Kai's Baptism last week. I can't believe he is 8 years old already! Slow down time! My husband (Kai's grandpa) had the opportunity to baptize Kai. It was a beautiful day celebrating his baptism with family. I am so proud of him. He is such a sweet boy!

Tyler's Update

Just a little update about Tyler. He is such a fun little guy. His health is doing as well as can be expected. His limbs are a little blue, that is from growing and his heart is working a little harder. He seems to have grumpy days. It's so darn hard because he can't tell anybody how he is feeling. Jamie said she expects to have his third surgery early next year. We hope that is the case anyways. He will see the cardiologist in November, I think it's November. They will know more then. We feel blessed that we were able to spend time with him and his family this summer.

I've been spending lots of time with Family

We took a trip to New Mexico to visit our Daughter April and her family for a week. Had a great time.It's so hard to leave. She is expecting her third baby, so we'll be back in December. She is actually due December 25Th. Then my daughter Jamie and her family are visiting from Utah. I have been having lots of fun with my family. we are watching all five kids while Jamie and her husband Jon get away for a few days. Then we will meet up with them in Corona Delmar for some fun at the beach.

Friday Highlight: 3D Flowers with Moon Shadow Mist

These flowers are so pretty. I think if you don't have the die that you can take a regular flower punch and just cut the flower yourself.This video is by LiveLoveScrap.

Mini Scallop Tag Album

I haven't put any pictures in this album yet because it is for a make and take that I am doing.
I made this Album using the new Cinch from We R Memory Makers.
This binding tool is a lot easier then the Bind it all.
I put a picture of all the punches that I used. When you punch the scallops I cut in between the scallops to create a flower. When I punched the tags I started the punch in the middle and then punched each side.
The stamp is from Michales in the dollar bin from Studio G.
I just love this paper, it's from DCWV.
This is album is 4 x 4. and the pockets are made from envelops cut in half.

Friday Highlight: Keepsake Mini Box

This is such a cute project. The one thing I would change is not to put the flower rhinestone on the knob. It looks like she has some difficulty taking the band off.

Family Visit Cont...

Then Jamie came in May. I did not even know she was coming. She surprised me for my Birthday. My husband and I came home from the movies and there she was standing in the Hallway with two of her kids, Tyler and Kaylin. That was really fun and it just made my birthday even more special!

Notice the nice banner the girls put on my garage. They announced my 50Th birthday to all my neighbors!

Family Visits

In the last couple of months my daughters came to visit us and I thought I would share a few pictures of the time that we spent with them and their kids. April came to visit us in March. That is the time that she found out that she was pregnant with her third child. How exciting that was.
I really had a lot of fun with April, Ezekiel and Mia.
