12x12 April Calendar Layout & H2H Challenge

Feels good to be back in my little crafty place and I am creating like a mad woman. I know there are some of you who can relate to this crafty frenzy. Mine will come and go so, when it does, family members seem to know to stay out of my way…LOL!!!
Here’s my entry for this month’s Easter Spring H2H Challenge.
I enjoyed playing around with this layout as a calendar. I used a lot of my scrap papers left over from other projects. Nothing like using up my stash.
I apologize for the quality of my pictures … had to take photos with my IPhone … some family member has my camera… I wonder which one it could be…I guess I’ll be camera hunting instead of egg hunting.  Love you Catherine, but I need my camera when you return.

Craftily Busy all weekend …Yea!!

DSCN3225It truly has been a little while since the last time I could truly craft or scrapbook and enjoy it.  I am feeling better, though the pain comes and goes with everyday life. No explanation on why or when my flairs with Lupus does what it does but, as long as I am not six feet under, I feel the breeze blow, and I see the beautiful daylight … LIFE IS GOOD! Thank You Lord!
My CTMH Pemberly paper pack has really been put to good use. I loved going through the pictures of my Grandson from the last year. I can not believe he is a year old already. I am already behind with his book. Got to get my bootie in gear. Anyway, the pictures I choose for my pages went very well with the colors and for the type of pages I was looking to do. I still need to add a little something to a couple of them and finish the journaling. But, all in all. I am happy with them.
Below are just a few things I have worked on recently. Also, My calendar pages I have worked on here and there, some slower than others. I am only sharing the first 5 months… to make you come back and look for the others..LOL!! Enjoy. If you want the list of materials I used for these pages…Please check the appropriate tabs listed above. (I am slowly adding that information to the Scrapbook and 3-D Art tabs. Do give me a few days to get it all entered. If you need it right away...comment below with the email you would like me to send it to.)
The three pictures above were from our “Oh My Scraps” CROP CLUB from March 24th. The next 3 pictures are what I have added to the set.
The many faces and play days with my Chubby Checks over the last 6 to 8 months. He always has a smile for Nah-Nah. I am guessing this is what he is calling me from what we could make out just before Christmas this past year.
Here is an item I got to make with Melinda. She has talent! Thanks for inviting me over to play and see how to make this.

This is from the Pemberly Paper Pack and the CTMH Acrylix stamp set is  “Card Word Puzzle” from the CTMH Spring/Summer IDEA Book. I do not have this stamp set but, I do see a lot of uses for it now. This may be on my next set of Orders coming up soon. This was so simple to make using our “My Creations” Card Box. It was fun learning to do the inserts that lift up your cards; the divider was so sooo simple. We even did a matching pen. A great and easy gift to make for a card lover or for MOM.
