My first attempt at making lollipop flowers!

Hey guys heres my first try at making this sort of paper flowers! I just used 4 different size circles. I cut them out at 4, 3, 2, and 1 inches. Then just crumbled them up, opened them then inked and assembled! Then you could just add the center of your choice. Super easy and there are a bunch of youtube tutorials that will help as well. Hope you enjoy!

Yay I hit 25 Followers!!!

Good morning everybody! I know this may not seem like a big deal to others as I am sure there are people with tons more followers than me but this is very important to me and is definitely a BIG deal. I haven't had my blog for long but Its been alot of fun so far especially for all of your kind comments! This is what keeps me motivated to keep up with my postings as it can be a job sometimes as I am not what u would call "computer savvy" lol But Im learning and just wanted to take the time to thank all of you for subscribing and taking the time to leave me a comment!  ~ Mel

#6 "Cookin with Nauna" using from my kitchen

Excuse the colors of this photo. It  originally was very dark so I tried to brighten it up n think I made it worse lol

Heres number 6! A layout of my daughter and her great grandma who she calls "Nauna" . They have a great relationship and my daughter  just adores her and I wanted to do a layout of the two of them. I used from my kitchen for all the accessories and as usual decorated them up. Oh.. and my daughter spilled juice all of her shirt so its in the washer hence why she's topless! lol

Ok so heres #5 from my scrapbook gallery. This is of my daughter and her friend desiree runnin through our sprinkler!

I used my exacto to cut the title in half so it would frame both pages. Also used stickles for more interest.

Used stickles and liquid glass for the sprinkler

Graduation Card using paperdoll dress up

Heres just a few pictures of the card i made for the graduation party we went to last night.
  I used the little grad girl from the Paperdoll Dress Up cart. Used papertrey ink plum pudding cardstock for the card base and the matching plum pudding saddle stitch ribbon. The sentiment I used was from  stampin up teeny tiny wishes set and modern label punch and used ZING metallic silver embossing powder to emboss both front and inside sentiments

                                                                                        I added some pearls for her earings and necklace

 I added her initial to her gown with a
close to my heart alphabet stamp set.
