Spcc #24 and 52 sketches....52 weeks#46

Happy Friday everyone! I'm looking forward to a night in tonight, which is a change for us. Turns out that our Bible study group has been cancelled for tonight, so we just have to be at the church in the morning for play practice. It's hard to believe that the play is next weekend! I hope it goes well for them, they've really worked hard.

Anyway, just thought I'd show an 8 x 8 page I did for SPCC and for 52 sketches...52 weeks. The colors for SPCC were: bashful blue, real red, and certainly celery. The LO is of my step-sister with her maltese(Ashley). The cardstock is Bazzill, the flower sticker is by Making Memories, the chipboard backing around the photo is Maya Road and the foam alpha stickers are from the dollar section at Target. I can't remember who the patterend paper is by.Head on over to their sites and check them out, lots of great talent there. Have a great weekend!

Finally Friday at SPCC

Just thought I'd share a canvas I did for the Friday challenge at SPCC. The challenge was to alter something. I painted this canvas, then added dew drops and transparent stickers, glitter and a button. The letters are some very old alphas that I finally had chance to use, I knew they'd come in handy someday:)

We have quite a busy week here, soccer party, play practice, bible study, and had dinner guests last night. Also got to go see Stars Wars in concert for John's B-day on Sunday in Philly. It was great, not too keen on how high our seats were, but we got used to it. We received two great packages from my mom and sister packed full of crafting goodies, the girls and I are having a blast!

Please keep my step-dad in your prayers. He had heart surgery today, haven't heard any news yet.

Oh! before I go, just wanted to let you know of a GREAT site! It's There are tons of great ideas and groups. I joined the altered group. Check it out, there's something for everyone. Have a great evening.

Christmas Combo #13 and Matryoshka Dolls

Whew! It's Saturday already, this is the first day in months that we haven't had to be anywhere. Actually Talia's last soccer game was today, but she isn't allowed to play so that's what kept us home. Besides, it's rainy and dreary here today. Makes for a perfect crafting day. First, I did a card for SPCC. The colors were, not quite navy, whisper white and pale plum. There are great challenges each week. You should really give it a try! I can't wait to post on the challenge from Friday!

Next, I just had some fun making this fold out card of matryoshka dolls. I have always loved these! Never had any though, so when I saw this tutorial on Scrapscene,( I had to give it a try. I'm happy with the result, hope you've enjoyed looking

SPCC #23

Well, I'm actually ahead of schedule for this one! I really liked the color combo this week. I did a scrapbook page about my step-grandmothers 90th birthday.

Turns out the dog is ok, he has colitis, got a few shots and some meds so he is on the mend. Talia is back to school, she can't carry anything. She's still pretty sore, so now we play the waiting game. I'll just be relieved when everything is over. Thanks for looking, have a great day!

Christmas Combo #9

Just remembered that I didn't share the card I made for combo #9. I thought the colors worked well together. Thanks for looking.

SPCC #22-Blessings in Disguise

I'm very behind this week. It's been a crazy week for us. My oldest daughter was hurt in her soccer game last Wed. and to make a long story short, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. We were unaware that she has serious heart defects and if this injury had not happened, then we would not have known until it could have been too late. So Thank God for that game. She will have to have heart surgery, but should recover just fine and be able to do all she wants.

Now onto SPCC. I really didn't get to spend the time doing what I wanted for this, so I just made a little note to send to a neighbor. Hopefully this week will be a little smoother. The dog has been up sick all night and now is bleeding! So I have to have him at the vet in an hour, I hope I still have a job to go back to, wish us luck!! I really can't afford any more!!Thanks for looking and letting me vent! Have a great day.

Day of the Dead-Talia"s skeleton

Just wanted to share Talia's skeleton. She was chosen as one of three students in her Spanish class to have her skeleton shown at the high school for the day of the dead celebration. We stopped by last night to see it. It was too high up to get a pic of her with it, so I'll have to do that after she gets it back. There was a very nice display of the students work, very touching.

On another note today is my hubby's birthday, so lucky for me we get to go out for dinner!!!
