Time to Hop!!

Hello and welcome! As you can see from the graphic above we have a fun blog hop planned. The fabulous Winnie & Walter gals and Pretty Pink Posh design team have paired up for today's festivities! 

There are 2 prize packs up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop by W&W and PPP. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PDT on 10/27/2014. 

You should be arriving here from Leigh's blog. If not, no worries the complete hop list is below.

W&W sent each member of the PPP team two stamps sets of our choice ~ how GREAT was that!! I chose their fabulous {The Big, the Bold & Extras} along with {The Big, the Bold & Blessings} sets. I love the two step blooms and the over-sized sentiments!

From the PPP shop I've used the large scalloped and straight stitched line border dies (Stitched Borders 2) set along with sparkling clear sequins (4mm & 6mm). And finally I finished off my card with twine from a previously released kit.

Next up on the hop list is my teamie Maureen!! Enjoy the hop and good luck!


An Abundance of Cuteness for SSS!

Hey there bloggy friends! I'm back with another pair of those super cute baby booties for my soon to be granddaughter! I think I'll link these up at the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, this week is anything goes! I really fancied this pair up and am so in love with them, check them out!

Oh goodness I don't think I can stand the cuteness!! Again, the booties are made from the Papertrey Ink dies using Vintage Cream felt. Then I layered on a PTI Beautiful Blooms II (Aqua Mist Felt), Turning a New Leaf leaves (Spring Moss felt), and a My Favorite Things mini rolled rose (Lavender Moon felt). I sewed a tiny pearl inside the rose and then sewed everything on once again nice and tight!!

And yet again we have a matching headband!

I boxed these up in a clear square cupcake box from DeNami Design on a bed of iridescent shred. Sheer ribbon and the headband served as a "bow". When I showed them to my hubby he said they looked like little glass slippers!! I thought that was such a cute response!!

This pair, along with those from yesterday, were both in the clear boxes on the head table at the shower. When my son and daughter-in-law saw them they loved them. When I told them I made them for the baby my son's mouth dropped open and he said "MOM...when did you learn to make shoes??" Another great response!!

Thanks for visiting and indulging me in my baby joy!!! ~Lisa


Sharing Some Sweetness!

Hi there! I wanted to pop in today to share a bit of sweetness that I made for my soon to be granddaughter. First up a little pair of Mary Janes!

These were made with Aqua Mist felt using the bootie dies from Papertrey Ink. I added a Paper Sweeties die cut flower (Harvest Gold felt) and DeNami Design aqua buttons to the straps.

And what good would those little sweeties be without a matching headband...am I right??!! I bought the elastic at Jo-Ann Fabrics then added the layered PTI butterflies, PS flower and matching DD button. Everything is sewn on nice and tight!

I had so much fun making these. Oh gosh I just can't wait for those tiny baby toes to be tucked inside of them ~ squeal!! Stop by tomorrow for another pair, something a bit more dressy ~ hee!!!


cQc #264 ~ Just For You!

Hello hello! Time for another ColourQ challenge! This one turned out to be a challenge for me with only 3 hours of sleep! We had to take out sweet boy Max into the ER over the weekend. He hasn't been quite himself for a few weeks and over the past week has decided he does NOT want to eat. We've gotten very little in him. He's lost a little over a pound over the past 6 weeks or so. They said that is the equivalent to 14 pounds in us. Diagnostic scans show no tumors, growths... so that's good. But we need to get some further blood work and tests done. Any food I can get into my little guy makes me so happy and gives me such a sense of relief. Ooooooh the stress!!! St. Francis has been hearing many prayers from me lately! 

Now how about a card!

I used one of my Pretty Pink Posh border dies on the Wisteria Wonder strip, cutting both sides of it. Next I die cut a PTI label and topped it with a circle stamped with a PTI vine, Endless Creations sentiment and a sweet little DeNami Design flower fairy chickie! Her body is popped up with a foam dot over her glittered wings and skinny little chickie legs! I finished it off with some pretty champagne rhinestones from DeNami.

Looking forward to what you do with the colors. Check out what the fabulous ColourQ DT has for you this week, they always bring their A game!!! ~Lisa


Precious Remembrance Shop ~ Design it Monday!

Good morning blogging friends! I hope everyone had a pleasant weekend. Yesterday was my daughter-in-law's baby shower and it went off without a hitch. So much fun, so many precious baby girl outfits, lots of laughing, a few tears, surrounded by love. A beautiful day!

Let's get the week started with a fun Halloween project on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog. Today is my Design It Monday post, won't you join me?

Have a wonderful day ~Lisa


It's Baby Shower Weekend!!

Hello sweet friends! It's finally here...baby shower weekend for our baby girl Elton!! Mommy and Daddy are super excited and I think I have everything ready...sure hope I do ~HA!! 

I thought you might enjoy seeing the completed invitations that went out last month. As I mentioned before, my beautiful daughter-in-law requested gray, yellow & white along with elephants and chevrons! She told me her late mother called her peanut from time to time, hence the elephants! Once we found out they were having a baby girl I added the little flower to the elephants ear! The sweet polka dot elephant is by DeNami Design.

And as a sort of last minute idea, I put together individual packets of lemon candies for our guests. I think it's a bit nicer than everyone dipping into a single dish! The circle behind the stamped lemon is actually gray, it looks black here. the images here are by DeNami Design as well.

I'll have more photos to share next week. Take care friends and thanks so much for stopping by today. You really are the BEST!! ~Lisa
