Materials: American Crafts Confetti glitter paper, Bella Blvd Family Dynamix Quadrants,

Holy Canoli! I missed my Punky Scraps weekly challenge deadline! OH NOOOO! I'm really sorry Nat and team! I'll get started on my canvas project right away. And YOU- gets to creating! STAT!
Here's the creative prompt:
Punky Scraps Challenge 14- CANVAS
Fun huh?  Why did I think this was due next week? ARGH!

American Crafts "Confetti" line is so CUTE!!!! I wish I had more items but a girl can only spend so much on crafty goodies. Dude when did cheese get so expensive? A pound of grapes, some Heluva Good extra sharp cheddar cheese and a loaf of bread= 12 bucks! I almost fell over! Lola cannot LIVE without her mac and cheese and broccoli lunch so I am one broke Momma.

In scrap related "news"- I have an entire BOX of bling that I've never used! I have bling words, bling shapes, bling animals, bling EVERYTHING- how did I not use my stash on every page? A mystery!
I really love how it brightens up a page but it's super hard to get it to shine on camera- a simple bounce card next to the camera lens to reflect light back onto the page fixes that right up.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter! It will be raining here in NYC so we will spend the day watching movies and playing inside. No eggs this year- Miss Lola is too young and thinks throwing them is more fun.
Miss Lola walks in Alphabet City- that FACE!!! 
Special thanks to Amy- Curly Q Mosaics! she sent me a beautiful package of home made buttons and a gorgeous Easter Themed ATC. I plan to use those buttons on my pages- one even reads:

MUcHoS SmOoChEs!
Loves it!


  1. Happy Easter! Love the way you used the bling on this page!

  2. I am so happy you received it before Easter! That is so funny that she was sticking the Peeps to the walls! I would have to agree, that would be much funner than eating them. :)

    Your layout of Miss Lola is precious! I of course adore all the bling and the red/white candy striped border!

    I look forward to your layout with the buttons. I am sure they will look great on there, of course every layout you make is over-the-top fabulous!

  3. oh don't worry :) it's easter, it's allowed!! :)

    and oh how adorable is that face!! she is gorgeous!! :) xoxox


Ok peeps lets CHAT! You tell me what you REALLY think and I PROMISE to keep it open minded here.
