Glue Arts +Nikki Sivils swap-day 2

 Hello and welcome to my blog today , this week the Nikki Sivils DT has a cross promotion with
 Glue Arts adhesives. They sent us all some goodies to play with and this is what I created with the Noah collection .

I adhered the background papers with the Glue Glider Pro . The unfinished frame is from Michael's (I think I only paid a few dollars for it !!! )

And used the Foam blanks to raise the banners,stars and the little truck. I love that I could cut the foam adhesive in the shape I needed and they REALLY stick !!! Love that...I will be buying more of this product !! Thank you Glue Arts for the awesome supplies :)

That's it for me, as always thanks for visiting. Make sure to visit both blogs (for lots of gorgeous inspirations !! ) and leave comments for a chance to win some nice prizes !!!

Crop and Create weekend fun !!!

Hello to my scrappy friends !!! This weekend I had the pleasure of spending time with around 120 very happy women at a Crop and Create  here in Moncton. This event is hosted by the very talented, sweet and funny team at Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine !!!!
Here are a few pictures ....
                                  Leica Forrest ,me and Vicki Boutin !!!
 The crew....Tara Mowat Thynne,Vicki Boutin, Isabelle (scrappy friend) ,Me, Kelly Goree, Catherine Tachdjan (Founder-Publisher of the Scrapbook and Cards Toady magazine),behind me is Jill Yegerlehner (owner of Jillibean Soup) and Kimber McGray (card maker wizard !!! from Jillibean Soup),Kathy Thompson and Leica Forrest.
Don't I look happy....I was just so giddy to be standing next to these talented women.

and these 2 women wowed me !!!!

 Jill and Kimber from Jillibean Soup.....from now on ,every time I create with Jillibean products ,I will think of how kind,sweet,talented and funny these two are !!! Jill even signed a bunch of my layouts that had been "Soup Spotted" on the blog !! So sweet :) Gabriel and Felix thought that was really cool !!

Catherine had a little tag contest going during the crop,we were to decorate and write a quote or saying. This is what I came up with :)
She really liked it so I gave it to her.....hopefully it will remind her of the great time we all had at this crop !!

I also had a bit of time to create a few layouts :)......spent A LOT of time chatting !!!
I used the sketch provided at the crop from Page Maps and the awesome Neopolitan Bean Bisque collection from Jillibean Soup for this layout of Felix :)

This one was for a Color Suite challenge.
Supplies for this one are from Fancy Pants and Jillibean Soup.
I need to put the finishing touches on an other project and I'll share it soon :).

Thanks so much for visiting....8 more sleeps until Disney !!!

Having fun with PSA Essentials

Happy Easter everyone !!! I totally forgot to post this yesterday....I was busy getting my Disney surprise ready (my kids found out this morning that they are going to Disney World in 3 weeks) !!! Best Easter egg hunt ever !!
Just look at them :) I've kept this a secret since last summer !! So glad it's finally out !!

Now on to scrapbooking !!!! PSA Essentials sent the Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker design team  a fun stamper and peel and stick stamps to play with this month. I had never even heard of them and  just loved,loved,loved to use that stamper (I felt like a school librarian-stamp,stamp,stamping on paper !!!)

 I decide to use the cute little dress stamp and the Audrey collection for this Mother's Day gift bag and tag:)

Here's a close up of the tag :) I also used some twine from the Twinery .

Thanks for popping in, hope you're having a great Easter....I know I am after this morning egg hunt ;) Even if it's snowing like crazy out here in New Brunswick !!!!

New Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker layouts

Hello scrappy friends, today over on the Nikki Sivils blog I shared these two new layouts of my little guys.

Thank Heaven for little boys
When Nikki first introduced the Noah collection on her blog,  I  knew that this photo of Gabriel as a 2 year old would be perfect for it. I love this photo (I've used it a few times !!!) isn't he cute ;) xo

1st Grade
This one was created with the Messages collection. I thought it would be fun to created a school layout with  the ledger/graph papers and the ABC die cuts in this collection :)
Thanks for visiting with me today, I hope you all have a safe and fun Easter Holiday :) We are finally going to tell our boys that we are going to Disney on May 1st !!!!!!!
