HIMCR Challenge #95: Mother's Day!

I know.  I'm a slacker.  I haven't posted since last week.  Baseball season is kicking me in all different directions!  Here is the Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge #95!  This time, we are focusing on Mother's Day.  This also could have been a super scraps Saturday challenge for me as well!  I made this card for my children to send to my mother in law.  I hope she likes it!

Chevron Paper:  My Mind's Eye--Boy Crazy
Cardstock:  Bazzill
Washi Tape:  We R Memory Keepers

I used embellishments from my "randomness" box, which means I have no idea which company they came from!

HIMCR Challenge #94--Banners!

It's banners week at HIMCR!  Ok...I have never used banners.  In fact, I could have really cared less about banners before this challenge.  To me they sounded like a waste of time, but I'm always up for a good challenge.  So my thought was bring it on!  Confession.  There's a good chance I'm now in love with banners.  The banner set I did on this page was a bit big.  If I had to do it again, I'd make it smaller and put a robot on the page.  But it's still way cute!

Paper:  My Mind's Eye--Boy Crazy
Cardstock:  Bazzil Smoky and Flat Broke
Bakers Twins and buttons were bought in bulk

HIMCR Challenge #93--Super Scraps Saturday!

It's Super Scraps Saturday over at Hiding in My Craft Room!  It's a chance to get rid of scraps that you just can't bring yourself to throw away.  Would you believe that all of my scraps were from Authentique, except the glitter.  I love using paper from the same designer, but from different lines!  Their hues tend to stay the same and you don't worry about having to match reds or yellows.  I hate matching reds and yellows.

It's Shopping Time!

WOOHOO!  Today is drop off day for leaders at Rhea Lana's of Joplin.  This means I get to get all of this stuff out of my house.

I estimate that it's about $400.00 worth of clothing, shoes, and a few toys.  If I sell 100% of it, I'll make $300.00 after my 30% that goes to the sale.  Not too shabby!  Now, I won't see a check.  Why?  Yeah...I spend it all.  After all, I will have 2 kids to buy summer and school clothes for and a baby that needs 12-18 month AND 18-24 month clothes before the next sale.  I also need 2 sizes of shoes for each child, at least 2 pairs a child.  It is very overwhelming to shop for all of that in 2 days total.  My hope is that I will pay little to no money out of pocket.  I'll give you an update next Wednesday on pickup day!

Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge #92: Pink, Green, Yellow

I am honored to be a part of the Hiding in My Craft Room design team!  My 6 month term started on Monday.  You should follow the Hiding in My Craft Room blog.  Each week there is a challenge.  Complete the challenge, link your photo (you can submit 3!), and you are entered for a prize!  You never know what Laurie will come up with!

Here is my pink, yellow, and green project.  Once I got the papers picked out, I knew exactly which photos had to go on the page!  I'm not a great card maker, so you'll notice that I do more layouts than anything else.  I don't often use yellow, so this was quite the challenge for me!
