Need for Speed!!!

My oldest son ran track this year in 6th grade.  In Baseball he is called Wheels, in track they called him "Beep Beep" for the road runner.  Even though I am a couple of years behind on both my boys scrapbook's I went ahead and jumped to this year Track for him.  He enjoyed it so much, it was good to see him so excited and have so much determination in him.

This picture was my favorite, I wanted to capture something different of just running,

Here is what my pages started with before the pictures.  I used the imagine and hte Sports Mania to print and cut the track.  I tried to make it look like the setting of a track. The numbers I cut from the Varsity Letter Cart.

Here is one page, the shoes in the top right I used from my CCR for the very first time and used an exclusive download.  I have to say I really liked the CCR it was SO EASY!!  Ok at least to cut a pair of shoes it was. 

The Need for Speed I cut from the Sports mania as well, using colors from the Imagine.  The yellow behind the pictures I used the Imagine Snapshot: Texture Cart.

The ribbon in the bottom left I cut from the Platin SchoolBook.

Final Project of both pages

Thanks so much for looking, I will be doing one more page for track but waiting for the team picture.  Thanks so much for looking.

Carts used:
Platin SchoolBook

All PINK!!

Another Pinterest idea I seen, plus I already had all the stuff to do it with.  It was all the same stuff I used to make christmas ornaments.  You just need Pledge floor wax and glitter....I used PINK of course.  Thas is my favorite color, not so much for my boys, so when ever I can use it on something for me I go all out.

Just pour the Pledge Floor wax in the bottle, swish it all around to coat the inside of the bottle. 
Then pour your favorite color of glitter in. 

See Simple as that!!

Teacher Appreciation Week

This week was very busy in our house, with 2 track meets and work and me just not up to 100% par with my crohn's disease.  I still wanted to show my appreciation for my youngest son's teacher.  She is his 2nd grade Teacher, my oldest also had her when he was in 1st/2nd Grade as well.  She has been an amazing teacher with both my boys.  This was the final gift of the week, I really wasn't thinking on the rest of the week (I didn't take pictures).

My son made her a card.
We gave her a candy dish etched "friends"
We gave her a handwritten card saying, "You are a POP!!ular and AWsome Teacher" and with that card was a popcorn bag decorated and a little A&W Root Beer can.  I craft lifted from pinterest.
We gave her this picture frame decorated with paper from the imagine (Black&White)
and handwritten words.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment, it always brightens my day to read them!!

Mirror Dress Up

I have this "mirror" with a beautiful edging on it...well I decided to change it a bit. 
I added a piece of 12x12 scrapbook paper, and put a collage of our family pictures on it.  I also added some flowers for extra depth.  Very simple but yet still very elegant I think.
Thanks for stopping by.

Flower Power!!!

I am really enjoying the cricut Flower Shoppe cart that I bought at my town wide garage sale.  I like it so much I had to do a BLUE one.  I already enjoyed the PINK one, see my Garage Sale Day, April 30th post ....becaue PINK is my favorite color, and of course the boys of the family like BLUE.  So I created this BLUE one and added some bling.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!!!
