Hello Friends!

Can you believe it's May!!! It always seems to sneak up on me. Yesterday was my Birthday. I had such a wonderful day. Jim and I started the day off at Duke's in Malibu for Sunday Brunch. We had a table on the water and a view of Catalina. It was such a beautiful, clear day. We ended the afternoon with a drive up the coast and a walk along the beach.

Later we had a BBQ with the girls and Tashia. So nice to have her so close again. 

I'm so excited to say that I've finally had some time to start working on the calendar for my new niece, who is due any day now.  So I have a few photos here of my scrap room and of  the first 2 pages of the calendar.

I love my frame with all the kind words!!!

As you can see I still have boxes to un-pack and organizing to do but...I'm getting there.

And here are the first 2 pages of the calendar. I'm using the Chloe line from 3 Bugs. It is so cute and I just love it.
I hope once this is done I can get working on some Cards!

I used cotton candy stickles on her name, I wish you could see the sparkle in the photo.

I cut the dragonfly border on the silhouette in white. Then I used the spun sugar distress stain to color it. I love how easy it was to get color on a die cut. I then used some pearl glimmer mist to give it a little shine.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are all well and creating! Missing you all tons!

  1. Happy Birthday Karen. I see you had a wonderful day. The craft room is sure taking shape and love the layouts. Take care my friend.

  2. Belated birthday wishes, Karen! Your craft room looks so nice (and way neater than mine). And what a wonderful keepsake for your niece!

    Just wanted to say thank you for your sweet comment on the Moxie Fabber post. It means so much to me!
