Altered Dixie Cup

Well my friend Heidi showed me this great website, splitcoaststampers and let me tell you what a great site this is! i love going there and browsing all the great stuff these ladies come up with! such talented ladies. I just wish i had the talent that these woman do to make this stuff up! i saw someone do a dixie cup and i had to try it. recently i have been in a shower kick and i have been doing all girl stuff so i figured to give boy colors a shot. so here is my altered dixie cup! thanks for looking!

also i saw these paper bows, i am sorry i forgot where i saw this at. But i had to try it and really it wasn't that bad. i have to tweak them a little to make them look right. I also need glue dots, i used my square adhesive and they just arent sticking to well to each other. i am excited to keep making these and i cant wait to try them in different papers.
Well its 2:10am here and i cant sleep, hubby has left for a business trip. also i am busy doing a virtual crop over at cafemom. i have a scrapbooking group there called let's scrap. today was alot of fun, we are doing how to's and scrapping idol. well i guess its time for bed, thanks for reading and looking! nighty night!

mint favor boxes

well i saw this cute idea on the net from someone's blog ( i am sorry i dont remember who) so i made this cute mint box that has 4 york peppermint patty's. the box was really easy to create and once i get my scalloped punch this will be so much easier! i think these would look great as baby shower favors or any kind of party favor.

Products used:

Brenda walton 12x12 paper and butterfly cutout

walmart ribbon

Could you play santa?

Hi everyone
not sure if most of you know but my husband served over in iraq and i am very proud of him. there was an organization called ARMS that helped us and many other military families. every year they give presents to kids of deployed soilders. here is a email i got and hope someone can help,


I am writing to my friends and family, because our Project Little Soldier (Holiday gifts for the children of deployed military) has become bigger then we have ever had it before. We are taking care of children from all over the US. NY, Colorado, Wisconsin, California, Utah, Louisanna, North Carolina, Illinois, Michigan, Texas, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and of course NJ and I need your help.

If you, your business, your place of business, your friends or even your church can sponsor a child or two (each childs total gifts do not exceed $105, some are as low as $50. Each child can pick 3 gifts of their choice) I would be happy, since I know all of you to email the childs address and and you can personally handle that child yourself. WE NEED YOU TO BE SANTA THIS YEAR. These children are without their parents (many their mom's) for the holidays. Let's make the holiday season what it's all about. Helping others in need.

Please let me know if you can do this. If you would like to do this in memory of someone, let us know and we will attach a letter explaining that this is in memory of that person. If you feel you can not do this and would just like to send a donation, anything would help.

Thanks for listening to me. I can be reached at the above email, if you have any questions. You cam also find a link to Project Little Soldier on our website that you can print and hang in your place of business.

Thanks so much. Hope to hear from you


if anyone has any questions let me know and i can get ahold of ronnie. thanks again for your support!

baby girl matchbook

Tim's best friend had a baby about 2 weeks ago so i wanted to create something like a brag book. and i just did a matchbook for my sister so i thought it would be cute to do something smaller. But when i finished it and put it all together i figured out that it was a little bumpy so next time i am going to have to do it accordian style.
