Happy Thanksgiving



Happy Thursday!!

Melisa from Melisa's Crafty Creations here with you today.  Can you believe it next week will be Thanksgiving?  I know I can't.  It all seems to be going too fast for me.  Before we know it Christmas will be here!!  I thought it would be nice to send a little something to Matthew's teacher this week since school will be out next week.  

I used a white bag and embossed it with my Polka Dots Embossing folder. I put a cookie inside of the little bag before I decorated it as well.  I wish I would have taken a picture of the cookie before because it was decorated so beautifully.  (Note to self: Take picture of the cookie before.  LOL) 


The leaves and sentiment shape are from the Online Silhouette Store.  The sentiment is from It's all Fall Puns from Joy's Life.  The twine is Timeless Twine's Autumn Splendor.  


Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Thanksgiving.

~~PPPR~~ Baby Shower Banner



Good Morning!!

Today is Design Team Day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  My friends and I decided to have a surprise baby shower for a mutual friend of ours.  Our friend is having a baby girl in January.  I wanted to make a banner for her to put in the baby's room.  The problem is that she still hasn't decided what they are going to name their daughter so I had to leave it blank.  I told her that once they decide on a name I will cut it out for them

Here is my banner. 


To make the banner I used the Simple Banners Cutting File.  I also used the Layered Labels 2 Cutting Files to put the letters on (Once my friend picks out a name for her daughter).


The lion, giraffe & zebra are from the Safari Love Cutting File.  The Monkey is from the Birthday Critters Cutting File.


The bow on the giraffe is from the Honey Bees Cutting File.  I used the Pink & White bundle of Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.  


The flowers are from the Valentine Kid's Cutting File and the Lady Bug Cuttting flowers.  The twine is Bubblegum Pink from Timeless Twine.  


Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed seeing the banner I made.

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Super Hero Blog Hop





If you came here from Jeanne's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog.  Today we are using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files to make projects that are a Superhero theme.  I decided to make a layout.  It feels like I haven't made a layout in a while.  When my twins were babies my hubby would call me Super Mom for taking all 3 of our boys shopping by myself.  This particular trip I was pushing their double stroller and pulling a shopping cart behind me.  I had my oldest son Matthew take the picture.  It's funny how fast time flys when you have kids.  


For the background shape I used the Borders 2 Cutting File to make the scalloped shape. I also used the Sentiment Shapes 1 Cutting File to make the banner in the background.  


For my title I used the Super Mom & Dad Cutting Files.  The girl super hero is from the Superheroes Trio 2 Cutting File.  Isn't she the cutest thing you have ever seen?  I love how she turned out.    Her face is from Peachy Keen's Sweet & Innocent Face Assortment.

Baby Blocks


Good Morning!  

Melisa from Melisa's Crafty Creations here today.  One of my dear friends is having a baby girl in January and I thought it would be fun to have a surprise baby shower for her.  Here are some of the decorations that I made.  I got this file from SVGCUT's Bundle of Joy SVG Kit.    


The top of the baby blocks come off so you could add some candies inside.  I was going to add some jordan almonds but then I remembered that my friend's son has nut allergies so I scratched that idea.  


I used the Bubble Gum Pink Twine and the Aqua Blue Twine to decorate the blocks.  


I also used the Aqua Blue Twine on the buttons of the shoes.  I have to tell you it has been a lot of fun seeing so much pink on my scrapbook table lately.  It doesn't happen often since I have 3 boys.  

Have a great day!!

PPPR Design Team Day


Good Morning!

Today is Design Team day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I am in charge of Teacher and Staff Appreciation Activities at Matthew's School.  Every month I do something small for them.  This month I decided to make caramel apples.  I made 55 caramel apples for all of the teachers and school staff at my son's school.  Let me tell you it was a lot of work but it was definitely worth it.  The teachers and school staff loved them.  I am very thankful that there are such great teachers at his school.  


To make the tag I used the Layered Tags 2 Cutting file.  The pumpkin I used came from the Pumpkin Patch Cutting File.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's School Rules Stamp set.  The sentiment is perfect for my tag.  


I am entering this into Jaded Blossom's Anything Thanksgiving Challenge.  

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great week.
