So, all of my friends know that I am a bit computer challenged, but I have to say that the Silhouette Cameo is so user friendly, that creating these cute little drawers and boxes was a total breeze!
So head on over to Silhouette and enter the code SHOEBOX to get $10 off of the Advent Calender box (that's only $29.99!). So hurry, this special ends November 11th.
Check out the MLS blog for more pictures of this box.
Thanks for stopping by!

Jen Buck's blog, then you are hip hopping along just fine :D Isn't she awesome!
I used the tag/frame stamp and one of the flowers. I colored it using Copic markers and then cut it out and mounted it with foam squares. I used Ranger's perfect pearls to accent the frame. It gives the tag just that little extra something.
Next, you're off to visit Jimmi Mayo's blog. Are you in for a treat!
Please make sure to leave a comment along the way. At the end, we will have an awesome prize for you! And I will be handing out a prize as well! I will be picking a winner Monday, October 31st for a full line of your choice!
Thanks for stopping and make sure to visit Monday for the winner. Have a great week!

Here's a simple little "Happy Birthday" card that I created.
Here is a layout that I created. It's from my sister's and brother in law's wedding. I can't believe that it's been 13 years (Sept. 29th) already.

This album was created for my mom in memory of her Pomeranian Sweetpea. She passed away very unexpectedly just a bit before I created this and thought that she might enjoy something to stores her memories in.
The Audrey line is a really girlie line and loves to be adorned with lace, pearls and ribbons.

We have lots of tricks and treats for you along the way, so please make sure to hit all of the blogs (starting with MLS's- I linked it above).
Here is my Tootsie Roll Spider- Spooky! My daughter Victoria was so sweet and said to me,"Mom, you have to make a spider candy bag!" Thank yo Victoria for your super cute idea
I have a "Trick" for you. This is a great way for Room mom's to create a quick treat bag for all of your Halloween parties. This is a simple 4x12 piece of paper (MLS Trick or Treat- Monster Crossing), scored at 4", 5 1/2", 9 1/2", and 10 1/4". Fold on the scored lines (you'll have a flap that's 1 3/4". I found this to be too long, so I cut the excess with my pinking shears to make the edge extra spooky!). Cut out a 2 1/2" square window from the first 4" panel with a craft knife. Fill a Wilton goodie bag with sweet treats, staple it onto the back panel (Tim Holtz's Tiny Attacher), punch 2 holes into the 1 3/4" flap and the window flap. Thread ribbon(Creative Impressions) through and tie into a bow. Make a small tag (MLS- Trick or Treat- Scaredy Cat), use mini letters (MLS- linen Mini letters) for your message
and tie onto the bow with twine (Creative Impressions). Then I used an EK Success Jack-o-lantern border punch on a 4x1 strip of Scaredy cat paper, adhere to the front. Roll up some MLS 3-D Roll up Flowers diecuts and Glue to the front of the goodie bag (all adhesive from Therm o Web- red liner tape, sticky dot runner, 3-D Zots and Medium Zots)
I wrapped a candy bar with paper and used MLS's Cardstock Stickers to create a label
And lastly, I created a Treat bag filled with gumballs (or any candy of choice). This would also make for a super fast treat bag for any of the goblins that come knocking at your door.
Please don't forget to leave a comment! Ok, now off to the fantastic Treat that Linda has to share with you! Her project is amazing!
Don't forget to collect all of the letters along the way! Mine is the letter "Y". Good luck! and thanks for hopping by :D

On August 3rd (I know, I'm a little late), Rod and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary. I can't believe that it has been that long- where did the time go? Love you Rod and I can't wait for the next 20 :D
Here is one of the projects that I created for CHA. It's from My Little Shoebox's Trick or Treat line. I so love Halloween (second favorite holiday right after Christmas) and can't wait until fall. The crisp air, the way leaves change to a rich hue of red or orange, warm sweaters, baking pies and caramel apples- ok, sorry, I am so off track. I altered a jewelry holder to hold these cute little cards. I layered the papers with vintage images, used the new Cottage Cutz dies that match My little Shoebox's new lines and just had fun digging through some of my old and new treasures.
And here a better look at the bottom portion. I've had a small box of those pumpkin jingle bells for what seems like forever!

I made this mini album of my family. It's been a struggle for me to get pictures of my kids. They're teenagers now (boo!) and just don't want photos taken of them. Well, I guess I can understand. What kind of a weird mom wants to remember the teenage years right? Lol!
All kidding aside, they really are great kids and I'm so blessed to have them!
Thanks for stopping by =D

I made this sweet little wall hanging. I had so much fun making this! Everything except the birds, "nest filling" and tulle are My Little Shoebox's products-oooo, I forgot the glitter (can't forget the glitter!)
Here's a close-up of the flowers and birds. Love the sparkle!
I absolutely love theses flowers and am addicted to making these! Thank you Kris for the awesome tutorial!
Hop on over to Nicole's blog for some inspirations.
Wait until you see her beautiful layout. It reminds me of paper dolls!
Please remember to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win a MLS prize.
I'm also giving away a prize. All you need to do is become a follower of mine and guess how many lines I used in my wall hanging. I'll announce a random winner on Monday!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

This card is just sweet and heartwarming. I cut out the heart from my favorite cloud paper. The ribbon is from Creative Impressions ( if you've never used their ribbon, run out and get some quick- lol. Their ribbon is simply the best for bow tying!)
I love this card! Even though all of the cards are from the same paper line, they all look a little different. I used one of the die cuts, cut it in half and formed a cone to fill with flowers cut from one of the papers.
Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!

If you just came from Norine's blog , then you are right on track. Isn't she amazing! Love her take on the sketch!
This is the layout that I created. I changed my photos to black and white. I felt it worked better not having all of the color interfere with the soft colors of the Heartfelt line.
Please leave a comment and become a follower of mine =D. Then hop on over to the ever talented Pearl's blog . We would love to see your take on this layout as well! All of the info is at the My Little Shoebox blog. And of course, there is a prize to be won.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend =D

I loved building the cherry blossom branch. I used one of the B sides of the Oasis line and free hand cut out a branch, cut out a bunch of flowers and built my little branch. This year will be our 20th Anniversary, so I placed 20 blossoms on the branch, one for every year of marriage.
Ok, so now that I've gotten all mushy about things, hop on over to the fabulous
and be prepared to be inspired!! Please remember to leave a comment here- that is if you would like to win an assortment of mini letters (I'll announce the winner on Wednesday, March 30th). And please leave a comment on all of the girls blog- MLS is having a fabulous prize for some lucky chickadee!
