Happily Ever After

I love princess movies, I mean who doesn't right? Girl meets boy, falls in love, wears beautiful jewels and puffy dresses and lives happily ever after. Oh sure there's other stuff in between (misunderstood villian, fights, lost shoes) but I think I've hit all high points.

Having my little Sophie means I get to watch all my favorite princess movies and say it's because she wanted to. Haha it's so awesome!

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show is to use pearls. I took some olive green paper from MME's All About Girl Stack and layered it with pink cardstock. I used my Prima script paragraph stamp and stamped it with magenta ink and then used some distress ink to vintage it up a bit more.

I cut the 2 hearts on my cricut and popped up the white one with foam tape. The sentiment in from My Pink Stamper. To finish, pearls of course!

Thanks for stopping by...hoping all you folks on the East Coast are safe and damage is minimal.

Coffee for Two

Happy Saturday! I'm starting to craft and get creative again, I won't say all my mojo has returned but I'm feeling some of it dance it's way back.

I really loved the colors from this last Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger - Val de Victorian. It just made me happy - the soft lavender, pink and orange with a hint of brown. Isn't it pretty?

Here is my take on the trigger:

 I layered brown, lavender and white cardstock together and rounded two opposite edges. I choose a "male" and "female" cup of coffee and separated them with a pink glitter heart brad.

I colored in the images with Sophie's Crayola colored pencils (gotta use what you have right?!). I also hand dotted a little pink border along the white cardstock which you can barely see. I used some foam tape under the sentiment to give it some lift over the twine.

The sentiment reads
"You're the cream in my coffee"
Pretty cute huh?!

Have an amazing weekend! Thanks for stopping by =)

Make A Wish...

If I could make a wish right now, I'd wish that I wasn't late in getting this in to The Play Date Cafe Anniversary Challenge. But I am.....figured I'd show it to you anyway because I really, really love it.

I stamped the background first with a script paragraph stamp from Prima. The birdcage is from the dollar bin at JoAnn's - such a great find for a $1. The flowers are from a Teresa Collins set and the sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping. Add a little bling and so pretty!

Thanks for stopping by, my mojo seems to be returning. It just needed a rest lol.
