Moxxie {6th Grade}

Good morning Moxxie friends! I've got a fun layout for you today using Moxxie's new line Brainiac.
This is such an awesome collection. You should see the whole thing....
What did you think? Awesome, right!?
I love everything in this collection. Especially the chalkboard paper. It was perfect for this layout. My oldest daughter as she was checking out her locker for her 6th grade year! Just can't believe my baby is now in Jr. High! I did a bit of paper tearing and and used the the cardstock stickers, LOVE them! I used a journaling card from the cutouts and cut it into a circle. Here's a close up of some of them. Isn't that owl so cute!? I loved the lockers and thought they were perfect for these pictures. :)
Then for the title I used the new alpha stickers from Moxxie! I love them!
They matched this collection perfectly.
 Thanks for stopping by! :)

Nuts About Sketches {Everyday Happiness}

Hello! I've got some fun news to share with you! I'll be staying on the Nuts About Sketches Design Team! I love Shawn's sketches! If you're a beginner or a seasoned veteran to sketches they are great for anyone. :) Here's today's sketch. I love all the little extra's in this sketch!
The pictures I used for my layout are of me and my girls hanging out for the day. I love hanging out with them! We love to have a fun girls day once in awhile. We sometimes go and get dessert at a cute little restaurant in Logan called Sweetly Divine. Always love their desserts.
I did a bit inking around the edges of all the layers and then a bit of faux stitching. Here's a few close ups.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Moxxie {Beware Zombies & Blog Hop}

Good morning! Are you ready for an kick butt AWESOME blog hop today!? I sure hope so because the Moxxie Muses have brought their "A" game and are going to blow you out of the water with the new Moxxie lines! Wahoo! So that being said, WELCOME to the Moxxie New line blog hop! On my blog I get to show you the awesome ZOMBIE ATTACK line...
Is it not AWESOME!? I love this line. It's perfect for Halloween which is right around the corner. :)
I jumped right in and created an awesome 2 page layout. Now I need to give you a bit of backstory to these pictures so you don't think my kids dress like this on a daily basis! lol ;) My daughters have been sooo bored over the summer break that they decided they needed to create a zombie video (gotta love their imagination). My older two voted that the youngest should be the zombie and they did the "make up" on her. Let me tell you, she made a very good zombie! I'm sure their movie will become a Blockbuster some day! ;)
These pictures and the Zombie Attack line were meant to be! Here's a close up of my title.
Here is a close up of one the hands I fussy cut "popping" out of the page. My girls loved these! They kept telling me they were so awesome and creepy! lol
Then on the fibers I tried to find some that was similar looking to gauze and "dirtied" up a bit with red & brown ink to make it look like it might of come off a zombie. 

Pretty cool line, isn't it? :) Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure to join us for the blog hop and see what the other Muses created! You won't be disappointed! :)

Moxxie {Decorated Water Bottle}

Good morning! Can you believe it's August already!? I surely can't. For me August means that my 3 daughters all return to school. Which is all rather bitter-sweet for me. How's your August looking?

Well, today I want to share with you a cute, fun little project you can do as a gift or way to add that little "extra" touch to a get together or just fun way to make your kids smile. :) I've decorated a boring bottle of bottled water and made it super cute and created a small card to go with it using Moxxie's Child's Play line. Totally cute, right? ;)
I wrapped a strip of It's a Breeze paper around the bottle and then for the little hanging down pocket to add a flavor packet I started out with a piece of cardstock that was 8.5" x 2.5" and then I scored at 1.75" and then again at 5.5". I used some sticky strip to glue the sides to create the pocket but staples work really well also. Then I decorated the front up with a few scraps that I had (great way to use every last bit!) and created an adorable pinwheel with a another scrap of paper I had. Then I just couldn't stop there so I made a cute little card to go with it. I used more scraps for card and a fun punch out and stamped the sentiment on the front. Quick and easy I really dresses up a boring old water bottle! ;)
Here's a few close up's for you. Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by!
