Blog Update!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to post really quickly. I am having problems viewing my dashboard or even signing in to my blog. This has been going on for the last few days. It's been frustrating. I have thought of even creating a new blog, but that would mean starting all over again. I hope that this issue with blogger gets fixed soon. Thank you for your patients.

"You & Me"

I am LOVING the new "You & Me" kit that is offered only this month through our Constant Campaign. I love the paper design and everything you get with it. I was able to create the 2 two page layouts that are in the guide that is included plus 3 cards. I am showing only 2 below since I erased the 3rd one by accident. :( I know.... Sorry... I am however able to show my favorite one which is the card below. I was able to create the flower using one of the stamps included. With just a little imagination and you can create so much more. Watch the "You & Me" video here to learn more about this kit.

Looking back...

Looking back is not a bad thing... when you see how much you've grown in your walk with Jesus. I stumbled on this post I posted a while back. I love that even today, God speaks to my heart after all these years. He has worked in areas in my life and helped me grow. Today is a new day and new season. He is still at work in my life and I am thankful for that. He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Time for Tea!

I recently hosted a tea party for my daughter who turned 5 yrs old last month. I had to get very creative. So, I decided to challenge myself using CTMH products. I made tiny little goody baskets I filled with chocolate eggs. The second photo is the front part of the invitations I made. I used TEA TIME stamp set and Baby Pink Cardstock. The color on the picture isn't true to color. Sorry... Did my best using indoor light.  I also added GLITZ™ GLITTER GEL to the tea pot on the basket. The girls loved them. They were so simple to make. Oh! And almost forgot! I used our scallop and circle punches.

Items used:

Z1313 Glitz™ Glitter Gel
