I'm a Sweet and Sassy girl!

  Robin Carlton has asked me to join her CT and I have accepted!  I was so flattered that she asked.  And I am loving her designs! Below is my first official CT layout using her new 2 scoop with Lauren Grier - 5th avenue sunrise.  To celebrate my new position I made a template from my layout to share!  GRAB IT HERE  if you like! 


What does my frig say about me?  

What Your Fridge Says About You

You like to be surrounded by things you love. You aren't exactly greedy, but you can be materialistic at times.

You are a very thrifty person. You don't like to waste money... or food.

You are a very adventurous person. You love to try new things, and you get bored very easily.

You are responsible, together, and mature. You act like an adult, even when you don't feel like it.

You are likely to be married - and very busy.

Coconut Showdown Challenge #1

My gallery is not set up yet at www.coconutscrapbooking.com so I am putting my first challenge up here on my blog.  We had to do this neat new grid technique with stamps and markers.  I used Heidi Swapp circle stamps and Stampin up craft ink on Bazzill cardstock.  This is my oldest son in March (other items: American crafts paper and thickers, AMM rick rac, Heidi Swapp deco tape, MM photo corners, sharpie white marker)


Fabric, yummy, Fabric!

I went to Joann's today and got some fabric for several projects. I also got some fabric and trims I ordered through a coop buy as well.  I have lots of fun things to make!   But the first thing is a SMOCK for me!  Over at the Sew, Mama, Sew blog they had a fabulous smock sew-a-long with videos even!  You should go make one too! I got some great ticking stripe in yellow, cream and hints of red to make mine with - I am binding it with red bias tape.  So excited!  I will post a pic when I am done.

So I am a little nerdier than I thought I would be and that sorta makes me happy. Does that make me even more nerdy?

Welcome Martin!

  Isn't that the cutest name?  We welcomed a new nephew into the family last week.  Dwight's brother and his wife added a baby brother for our niece Elisabeth.  He is so sweet looking.  Here is a layout I made with one of the photos they sent.
