Pick Your Battles!


Happy Saturday everyone! Each month Chelle blogs about unlikely pairs-two kits which would not seem to go together. This time she had her creative team use  Sunnyside Up and Primarily.  Have you checked your stash lately to see what kits you can combine for fun layouts?



Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.

Tea 4 Two


Tea 4 Two

Journaling by Nicole: I remember my grandmother drinking tea as a little girl. When I was older, I visited her and she explained to me about proper tea, as taught by her grandmother.

Start with boiling water. Pour into teapot and pour out. Pour in more boiling water and add tea bags. Wait two minutes. Select a bone china teacup. Pour milk into bottom of the cup-first of course. Add tea.

She said the final step was the most important one. Find a friend (or granddaughter) to share with.

Art Journaling has come to Jessica Sprague.  This 2nd installation of her popular Journal Your Art Out  series is chockfull of Altered Art goodness!! This kit has it all.. gorgeous painted backgrounds, beautiful word-art, painted elements, brushstrokes, paint splats, illustrations and more!


Soooooooooooooooo, grab a friend and have yourself a nice cup of tea.

40 and Fabulous


I’m back.  We did not have power along with a quarter million other households in the Kent/Seattle area.  Furthermore, we were without Comcast <eek> from Thursday thru Monday-no phone, no internet, no TV.  With all the rain we have had the past two days, most of the snow has disappeared.  On the plus side, I got some gorgeous ice photos which I will scrap later.


Year in the Life Neutral by Haynay Designs. has the softest prettiest colors.


To make the page, I used Down this Road Designs, Road Map, Volume 3.


Thanks for stopping by.

Journaling: Times were tough during the Great depression, but life did not stop. Rollie played football for the Ellston Eagles. It amazes me that they took team pictures back then!

According to research, these old-fashioned 'leatherhead' football helmets from the early 1900s were as effective, and sometimes better, than modern football helmets - at least when it comes to injuries during routine, game-like collisions. Unbelievable!


Game Day Bundle by Chelle's Creations. With just seconds left in the game, it's fourth and goal. Time to reach for a snack and a drink! Game Day Bundle by Chelle's creations has everything you need for your superbowl party, college playoffs, or just a typical weekend enjoying the game with family and friends.

Chelle’s little felties are just the sweetest-crayons, pencils, books, backpacks, apples and more. Back 2 School is the perfect school kit.
