It was a VERY good mail day yesterday! I got my kit from Lime Tart and all my goodies from Emma's Paperie! Yayyy!
Let me start with a little teaser from the Lime Tart kit. I got the Full Tart and here is just a little taste of what is in store for everyone who orders it.
Do you recognize those papers? Ohh...man do I love Webster's Pages. I am going to have fun with this one! :)
OK, so now for the other box I got. I got so many yummy things from Emma's that I couldn't help sitting down and creating one little card for you last night. I used the most recent sketch over at the CPS blog for this one.
Isn't that little owl cut the cutest thing? I am loving all the adorable holiday stuff from Crafy Secrets. The small Happy Halloween tag is from Making Memories. They sold out really quick but Cindy tells me they will be back in the store any day now.
One more card for you. I made this card using one of the new stamps from Just Johanna. I just love that little mushroom house.
Hmmm...do you think I have done enough enabling for the day? LOL Have a spectacular holiday weekend!

I have two sneak peaks to show you today! :)
First I wanted to share a little peak of one of the new Lime Tart kits. No I did not get my box yet but I am anxiously still waiting. :)
This peak if from the Full Tart kit. There are three kits in all and you can check them out here. I just can't wait to start playing with those beads! :)
My other sneak is for a fabulous issue Paper Crafts has recently put out called Cards, Gifts & More: Paper Crafting 3 Ways. I just got my copy a couple of days ago and I have to say it is absolutely fabulous! I wanted to share one of my projects with you from the book. The concept of this section was to step up a project (easy, medium, and a little more complex)
Hope to get some cards done today in between the laundry and cleaning up my kitchen. I will try to share some with your tomorrow.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I used my circle punch to to create the outside border to make the card look like a stamp.
I don't know about you, but I am ready for Halloween. Fall is definitely my favorite season. So here is a card I made using some of the Halloween papers from Die Cuts With a View. I stamped the little mummy on canvas paper to give him some texture.

Kimber is bringing over her sweet girl Laura for me to watch today so I don't have a lot of time to post but I did want to share a couple more Lime Tart projects with you. I seriously had so much fun with this kit. I am hoping to do another card or two using up the rest of my scraps. I used the Just Johanna stamps that were in the kit this month on both of these projects. I can see myself using that Just a Note stamp A LOT!!! Love it!
I made this notepad by printing lines on 8x4 paper and then adding pattern paper around the outside. Finished it off with a couple of stamps at the bottom.
Hope you have a fabulous Friday!

The girls started school on Tuesday so we decided to have an end of summer party on Monday. Each of the girls invited 6 girls over for water fun and ice cream sundaes. They had such a blast and I have to admit, I loved watching them and listening to all the shrieking and giggling. I always thought I was going to be the mom of boys, but I adore having two little girls! I got some really good pictures of some of the other kids too but here are a few of the girls.
We filled 300 balloons...
Check out Katie's face in this one! :)
Lauren's best friend was trying to get her with the hose. :)
This is what happens when you let the kids make their own sundaes. We are out of whip cream btw! :) Are you surprises???
Cindy has also posted our glitter projects on the Emma's Paperie blog and it is all so sparkly and beautiful! You HAVE to check out those gorgeous projects!
I hope you all have a fantastic day!!!

Our weekend with friends was absolutely fabulous! We had so much fun and the girls didn't want to leave. Don't you just love that when you have friends and the kids just seem to fall right into place? They played together like they were best friends.
I got a bunch of great pictures with my NEW CAMERA! A package came Friday for Greg and so I put it on his desk. When he got home he called me down to open it. He got me my replacement camera the day I actually crunched the car. Man, I have the sweetest guy! Anyway, for my birthday he improved the lens. :) I now have an 18-200mm lens. I can't stop beaming and I am dying for soccer to start. I had been wanting that lens to get closer up pictures of soccer. YEA!!!!
I have been working on my projects for Lime Tart. I just can't wait to share them with you. I am absolutely in love with the Just Johanna stamps that came in this month's kit. They are fabulous.
Check in on Thursday when I will be able to share. :)
OK, so now for a project for you. The color challenge is up at Emma's blog. Our guest designer this month is Hilary Kanwischer and she did an amazing job. I have to tell you these women amaze me every month! So head over there and check it out! Here is my layout for the challenge. We were asked to use orange this month. Mmmmm...I just love that Kaiser Craft paper don't you?
I did this layout for Emma's Paperie also. We were asked to use the white stationary boxes. These boxes have a clear cover. The innovative ideas everyone came up with blew me away! Here is mine.
Have a great day!!!!!

For this project we were challenged to use lavendar. Not the color I usually use but I am so glad Cindy gave us this challenge. I love to have a reason to step out of my comfort zone once in a while and I am really happy with the results.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!!

A few quick projects to show you today. The first one is an older card I made for a Paper Crafts call that got no love. I do love it though. :)
I created this pillow box for Emma's Paperie last month. I absolutely love this paper from My Mind's Eye. So don't be surprised if you see it somewhere else. I ordered several sheets. LOL
