Today I received the stylish blogger award from Amy at Amy designs! I want to give her a big thank you. She has seen the majority of my projects in person, and helps give me inspiration for new projects. Hopefully with her help I can get the hang of blogging and keeping it updated!

The conditions of the Award are:

1. Make a post linking back to the person who gave you this award

2.Share 7 random things about yourself

3. Award 7 recently discovered bloggers with this award (dont' know that many)

4. Contact these bloggers and let them know they've won the award. ( Although i don't know many bloggers, it's my goal to get to know more creative crafty people like myself and have a great following)

1. The person who gave me this award is my super awesome talented best friend Amy at

2. Seven random things about my self are:

I'm a mother to a vivacious beautiful 3 year old daughter, I'm a nurse and all though my job can be very stressful, I wouldn't change it for the world. I love couponing and saving as much money as possible (thats the way i justify buying scrapbooking, i have lost around 85 pounds in the past year, i love researching my family tree, i have an odd habit of reading obituaries (when you are a nurse you wonder about patients and this can explain what happens to them once they are discharged, and recently we have had an owl inhabiting our newspaper box and it made the local newspaper!

"Flour Child"

With the holiday baking season quickly approaching, I made this layout. Plain cardstock is Bazzill, and patterned paper is from the Sweet Treat paper pack. The Baker was made with Everyday paper dolls cartridge, and the letters were also made using the Cricut. The oven mit and copper pot were brads I found at Archivers, unsure of the maker.


This layout is a simple, cute halloween alternative to the many spookier ones I've seen. My daughter Ava was Minnie Mouse this year, just plain cute! :) The orange prism paper is DCWV, as well as the plain colored cardstock. The patterned paper is K & Company. Some black and white polka dot ribbon used as a header for the three pictures on the bottom, along with fabric flowers-manufacturer unknown.

When is enough enough?

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say this...but "Can I really ever have enough paper?" This picture doesn't do justice to actually how much paper I have now, probably twice that amount. I even had custom made 100% real wood paper towers made to hold my collection because everything else would begin to bow in the middle from the weight of the paper. I'm a sucker for the 9.99 sale for paper stacks, pretty much regardless of the brand. I need to buy paper singly, even though it might be more expensive per page, I won't get stuck with paper I won't use-and lets face it, about 50% of the paper in the stacks I usually separate and let my two year old daughter use for coloring!

Social Butterfly

This is a fun 2 page layout that I created with alot of my butterfly scraps. There is everything here from plain cardstock, patterned paper, glittered paper, Chipboard embellishments, Paper and fabric flowers, patterned ribbon, and rub-on flower letters. A little busy, but fun to look at!
