Skull Heads!

Hello all,

 This evening share is from our Halloween decorations. Yesterday me and my mom were out shopping at TarJay (Target) doing a little shopping. We came across some really cute Halloween plates. Which I know my brother is going to be jealous because he loves skulls. I told my mom that we had to get these plates, so that we could put them in side the orange chargers we found a Micheal's last week.  Once we had the plates on the table, I told her that I was going to use the mugs she had me purchase a while back from the Dollar Tree (that she is not using) and put a skull head on it. Here is how the mugs came out with the plate and charger. All I need to do now is find some skull napkin ring holders.

Well as always thanks for stopping by.......till next time!

My First Digital Layout!

Hello All,

Today's share is a late one. My mom recently order a program that she saw on JustYolie blog. The program is called My memories suites which you can check out here. This is a really cool program because I have downloaded a lot of different digital kits over the years to use some of the images on them. Now with this program I can use the kits to make wonderful scrapbook pages that I can print out and share. Here is a layout that I did using a digital kit from Teresa @ The kit I used is called CM Summer fun. So I thought that I would share some photos from our cruise we took this year. Let me know what you think? Thanks for stopping by...........till next time!

Layouts for my Mini 8X8

Hello All,

Today share is from my mini 8x8 album for the cruise that we are going on. As some of you know me and my mom over @ lovemypaper are heading to Miami for are Cruise.  I had started on making a 8x8 mini album to show some of the fun we are going to be having on this cruise. I was only able to put 2 of the 10 layout I had came up with together. We were so busy with other things that I did not have time to put more pages together be fore we left to head to Miami.

However we will be sharing little bit of pieces here and there of our travel to Miami and our cruise with Blue World Travel called Festival At Sea Crusin' with An African American Twist. This is a great Cruise it's a little expensive but well worth the entertainment.

We are going to have celebrities like Patti La belle, Charlie Wilson and Chrisette Michele along with Jay Lamont, A.J. Jamal and Chef Aaron McCargo from Big Daddy House on the Food Network. So as you can see this is going to be a fun cruise. As always thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog............till next time!.

Crusin' 2011

Hello all,

This evening share is for an up coming cruise, I'm about to go on with family. I know I  have been gone for a little while, but I was busy with helping my mom with some of her craft projects and keeping her blog going. However  I'm back now and wanted to share with you a vinyl design. I have been trying to get my mom to work with me on a vinyl design for some time now. But I don't know if she likes the stuff. She always say, "ok" but we never get around to doing it. Well I decided it was time to give it a try again. Here is a cup I did to take on the cruise to enjoy refreshing drinks in, I hope it's not to big. But this should quench my thirst quite nicely. Well stay tuned for more to come.

As always thanks for stopping by.............till next time!

Hello all,

I hope everyone is having a lovely Friday today. I know I have not be blogging for a couple of  week now, but I have been a little busy. About a week a go my sister-in-law lost her father and I have been helping her and her sisters out. So I wanted to share with you a project that me and my mom over at lovemypaper did for them. My sister-in-law wanted to have a doll made up, and used as a center pieces for her fathers repast. It just so happens that her family thought the little dolls look so much like her father. So on this project my mom did the cutting of everything along with the details. I put the little Curtis together and placed him on kebab sticks, so that he would sit in the flower arrangements. Share your thoughts?
