Fabric Bib Necklace

Last night I created a rolled fabric bib necklace, a few days ago while watching tv with my daughter (I hate not having something to do with my hands) so I grabbed some shabby pink and cream fabric, glue and felt and started rolling... created a curve appeal with pearl buttons, trim and whoola!!!! Bib Bling!!! The ladies at my Church just loved off to make some more and maybe a video....

Creative Play with a friend...What a mess!!!

My friend Kat and I gathered last week for a day of creative play and let's say we sure did make a mess, well really I made the mess, you see Kat is a clean scrapper and I make a total mess of the whole but we enjoyed every minute of it.... Here is a sneak peak at my tattered floral I made using Tim Holtz die, embossing folder and hardware, inks and glimmer mist. I love how these turned out.
And here is what Kat created with the tattered floral die, she used the new coordinated paper from Creative Imaginations...Glimmer mist, pretty

close up of Caged bird die of Tim Holtz, Kat flocked it in Turquoise love it Kat!!!! And here she is busy using the heat tool, we where running out of room on the table so we had to use the kitchen creative!!!!
Creative play with a friend is so fun, call someone up and have a scrappin date with them!!!! There was much laughter, coffee, more laughter~glimmer mist everywhere and alot of oh my's and ohhhhhh!!!!!

enjoy, Peggy Lee

My little Scrap Helper!!!!

Don't you just love my little scrappin helper...Her name is Sasha!!! I just love her, I placed my worktable next to the bay window in my room and the cats just love to lay on it...arrrr
These pics are bittersweet for me, see this cute girl has been sick for a few months and we just found out that she has all the signs for FEIL Lukema and possibly AIDS...very sick little girl.
My heart is so broken, I just love her she is my baby, I hold her like a baby all the time and she loves it but since her fever 103 lasting over a month she doesn't like to be held...ok have to stop the tears are flowing....

it looks like she doesn't like that placement of that flower...come on mom!!!!! lol

She is so weak and tired but what a love, she has filled this family with such love and blessing for the past year.....

queen of paper!!!!

I love being able to do fun stuff with my family and it doesn't cost a pennie... I couldn't believe some of pictures came out really nice....ohhhhh ahhhhh ohhhh
the blast at the end was sparkling delight!!!!! Here is the Baker family being so goofy but loving every moment of the fireworks!!!! love this one....

The best part was having some friends join up with us...I love this pic of Connie and Shawn watching the fireworks....
Shawn found a free seat in a Walmart shopping cart!!! We told him in the dark he looked like ET!!!!!! He had a blast....

everyday moments but a life time of memories...
Happy 4th everyone! Peggy Lee
