A Joyful Day - Thanksgiving ATC

Good morning everyone!

I want to show you my Gecko Galz DT project.

I made a simple little ATC.

How could I resist showcasing this cute little image from 
Gecko Galz Vintage Thanks collage sheet?

The background paper is also from Gecko Galz.
The Mayflower paper pkg.

Both image and background were mounted on brown card stock.

The plaid paper is from our cross promotion with 
Songs in My Heart.
I cut it into a banner.

The lace trim was a scrap I had here on my messy desk.

I added pop dots to the image to be able to have it sit above the lace trim.

Halloween card

Good morning!

Today I have a quick card I put together for one of my 
Gecko Galz DT projects this month.

The die cut was cut with my Cameo.
I used several different acrylic stamps and black soot distress ink on it,
then added some wild honey and rusty hinge distress ink all around the edges.

The background paper is from the Coven paper pack.

The little girl image is from Haunted Ephemera collage sheet.
I inked the edges with black soot distress ink.

The Halloween twine
(Really Reasonable Ribbon)
 was a scrap I had on my desk.
I wrapped it around the card and tied it in front.
I put the flower on top and fed the knot through the center,
then unwound the twine and added the bat button on top.

I finished the card off with a little silver flat trim, on the top right corner.

Halloween tag.....

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all having a great day!

I got a quick chance to play in my crafty place today and decided to make this tag.....

Rearranging the mess on my desk I found all these Halloweeny pieces!

Most come from My Artistic Adventures Etsy

Just the sight of it all was inspiration enough to get me going!

The flowers, ribbon and mesh ribbon are from my stash and I cut the ghost with my Cameo. 

I inked everything with black soot distress ink.
Used stickles on the clown, ticket and ghost.

I was wanting to add this to a challenge over at 
so I added the staples to my sentiment boxes.

The challenge is

Thanks for stopping by! 

I'd love to hear from you,

Baby Girl Mini Album

Good morning sunshine!
(I'm scheduling this post so I hope it's sunny out there when it goes live)

How are you all?

I'm doing pretty good! 

I have a mini album to show you today! 
Love doing baby girl mini albums...
so pink and cutesy (just like little baby girls)!

Here it is.....

I used a couple of papers from
Graphic 45's  Once upon a Springtime collection.

I love using the alpha beads and wire when I am making one of these albums!

I chose to go with large book rings with this book because I may have gotten carried away with the amount of pages I put in here!
Room for more pictures is always good right?

A close up of the flower cluster below.....

not sure if you can see it but I did glitter the large printed flower.

Below is the inside of the front cover.....

I did a lot of fussy cutting for this album

Each page is an envelope/pocket.
You can see, 
in the next photo,
 that I used a fussy cut piece to keep the flap closed.
I put it on a brad so it will be able to spin for easy opening.

Inside the pockets I added a little folder I made for photos.

That's it! 
I would show more but I'm not sure if 
Mom & Dad will see this mini before this post goes live
and I don't want to spoil the whole surprise!

Have a great week!

Please feel free to leave a comment
I love hearing from everyone!
