At the Cabins in San Diego

I got to say, the one who had the most fun at the San Diego KOA was Zacky. the little cabin was perfect for his size, he just loved cruising arround the cabin and playing at the front door, here he is kicking us out of the cabin..

Our kids sure made friends quickly with that huge ball. This is the front yard for all the cabins it was pretty cool you can see and talk to all your neighbors...

More San Diego

Here's Rico and Danny looking for sea "enemies" at the tide pools here. There was a lot of cool stuff to see, they found some crabs, little fishes, hermit crabs, and sea anemone's, but so star fishes, that was a bummer but they still had fun...

San Diego trip

So, I just got back from San Diego, We took the kids camping at the KOA there. it was a lot of fun, eventhough We were only there for 3 days, but trust me with 3 boys that was plenty, We had time to go to the beach, which We all love, the weather was perfect a little cool at night perfect for camping, I hate hot nights, and Zack's first time in a swimming pool, this was his second time at the beach, We went to pismo beach last march, but the water was still cold he didn't get in the water, this time he was so happy he didn't want to get out...

thinking baroque

I was starting to questioned my self why I got this set, baroque is not really my thing and it didn't matter the card samples I saw, I was just not into it. What made buy this set first of all was the 40% off, I couldn't pass off that deal, so I started playing with this set. At first I was not happy with this card, I thought it need it something else or the colors weren't good together, I asked my son and husband many times what they thought, but it's growing on me now I woke up the next morning after being up until late making the card, and it looked different for some reason and I like it now, I think I'm liking this baroque stuff now, I can't wait to play with it more. So here's the list of supplies.
Stamps: Baroque motifs, sincere salutations
Inks: purely pomegranate, close to cocoa
Paper: purely pomegranate, river rock, basic black, whisper white
Accessories: silver brads and black gingham ribbon.

What do you guys think????

I made these for a friend's baby shower, She's always teasing me about "my crafts" hopefully with this she decides to come to one of my parties. For the bugs, the truck and the bunny I used iron on transfer paper, and just follow directions on the package, the letters, feet and hands are stamped with craft ink and heat set them. Thanks for looking, I hope you keep coming back...

wooden letters

I made these letter's for my niece's b-day, her name is Angie she's 2 years old, I love making stuff for my nieces because I'm really girly, but I don't get to do girly stuff for my kids because I only have boys, so that was fun. I just used plain wooden letters from Walmart, gave them a coat of white paint, glued the paper on them, sanded the edges, sponged them, and decaorated with ribbons and things. It was a quick project, well I had to make them fast, I bought the stuff Saturday and her party was Sunday morning. I think they turned out cute, I'm very happy witht he way they look... TFL

Friend's coaster scrapbook

My husband's friend from work saw the coaster scrapbook I made from my mother in law and fell in love with it. She ask me to make one for her mom for her birthday, so this is what I did. I didn't know their names so my husband came up with this family poem. It goes like this.
Family is forever,
Always there for you,
Meaningful and special,
Important and true,
Loving and caring,
Yearning and strong.
So this is one of the thing I did over the weekend. I ve been very busy, and I'm dead tired right now, I'll be posting more stuff in the next couple of days... *click on the picture for a close up* Thanks for visiting!

Tile coasters

These are drink coasters I made also for my mother in law. they are made with ceramic tiles. I printed the pictures on tissue paper and glued it to the tile with modge podge, and gave it another coat to protected let dry stamped with stazon black ink and sprayed on a clear sealer, dont's forget to put the felt pads on the bottom so your table don't get scratched. I'll be doing a class on both the coaster tiles and the coaster scrapbook, if you live in the high desert area contactme for details...TFL ps. click on the picture to enlarge.

coaster scrapbook

I made this hanging scrapbook with chipboard coasters for my mother in law's birthday, that's them right there on the second tile. to do this I simply cover the chipboard with glue covered with the printed paper, after it dried I trimmed, sanded and sponged the edges, then attached the hinges with some brads, put my pictures on and the title, I used my sizzix machine and die cuts for that athached a ribbon on the top to hang it and that was it. It was pretty simle but it looks like it took a lot of work, you can also make it to stand on a desk or shelf that looks great too. Thanks for looking and come back and visit soon...
