Grandparents and the Imagine

I just got the country carnival imagine cart from on  when it was on sale.  I was very excited about this cart, I had been bidding on it on eaby with no luck.  So I was so excited when I seen it on for sale!!!  I love sales!!!

This is a picture from 1943 of my grandparents. My grandmother passed away 12 years ago this June 17th my grandpa will be celebrating his 93rd bday in August. The beads I used are from my grandmothers stash of craft items I have and then I added some glitter and bling to it. I will probably add a little more stuff but had to show you so far what it looked like.  My grandmother was my very best friend there isn't a day goes by that I do not think about her.  I know she is in a better place but I miss her dearly.

Crafty MOM Contest

I have entered the Crafty Mom Contest on the Cricut page on Facebook.  I may have two boys but I try to do FUN things with them in the craft world.  Last year over the summer we went to Anna Maria Island, Florida to see my brother.  I had never seen where my brother lived and it was absolutely gorgeous!!  Now I know why he doesn't want to move back to Indiana...heck I wanted to move to Anna Maria Island after I seen where he lived.  Well back to the point of this post.  My oldest son and I got up a couple of mornings and went out to collect shells because my brother told me that is when the best shells are up on shore.  So we collected LOADS of shells.  I came home and made a few things with them, but the one I entered was this. 

A Wind Chime, I cut vinyl and placed on some of the shells, painted on some of them then drilled holes in them and used fishing line along with some gold beads to give it some bling.  Please go vote for me if you have a facebook account.  I would love your VOTE!

Baby Shower Your Story Book

My cousins wife had a baby shower some time ago and I decided to make her a small little Your Story book from her baby shower pictures I took..  I did everything with the imagine.  Even the paper I colored and I used a textured paper in the imagine to give it more depth.  I even gave it some "bling."  I used the Nursery Tails cart for the Imagine.  I also layered the pages and I have to say I just love the scoring blade that came with my big YourStory cutter.  That is totally "WICKED DUDE"  thanks for looking and have WONDERful day.
