Best Friends

Sooo.... I'm buried in creative "work" that HAS to get done but it's ALL really good stuff!  Card kits will ship in a few days.... sorry for the delay.  It's been crazy between designing new stuff for Bo Bunny and fighting the flu and a nasty sinus infection all week. 

BUT...... tonight.... I have to admit.....

I literally pushed aside the stuff on my table and made a quick card for ME!  Just because. I haven't created something "for fun" in sometime and I promise you for my Mojo's sake.... this is a very good thing.  It feels good to stop and take a much needed creative breath then go back at it.  Plus.... I don't want ya'll to think I'm neglecting my fun new blog. :)  Anyhooooo.... here's the card a made tonight. 

I was inspired by this challenge over at the Hero Arts blog.  I love their stamps and their Flickr Pool.  I'm always inspired when I find time to check in there.  And the women have huge hearts..... it's a great place.  Okay... back to my card.  I guess you could call this a "hybrid" card because I used this Hero Arts DigiKit to print out and stamp my flags on. I also printed and cut a border for along the bottom of the card.  But there's some traditional scrappy goodies on this too!  My fave!   Oh and you can save this STAR pattern if you want.  It's come in handy for many different projects. 

Okay.... just wanted to check in.  Busy as ever.  Have a great weekend! ♥

So I've been madly creating and designing for the next Bo Bunny release.  Our older 5 were with their "other parents" today so Shane and I have been chasing around the littles.  We took them to the park for a little while this afternoon and when I was out I stopped and snapped a couple of photographs of this Cross that is super beautiful and impressive.  This church decorates it for the holidays but for Easter each year they cover every inch of it with fresh flowers.  So ALL DAY long on Easter Sunday you will see people stopping to take pictures.  IT'S HUGE.  It's probably at least 15-18 feet tall and who knows how wide.  I've been meaning to get a picture of it myself and finally did.  So pretty. 

And then I found this photo on a friend's Facebook page this morning.  Love it and how it perfectly displays the spiritual significance of this Easter holiday.  I'm soooo far from perfect.  So I'm especially grateful for Christ's atonement and the HOPE it renews my life with on a daily basis.  I hope that you each had a blessed day with the ones you love!  Happy Easter! ♥

“In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for he is risen.’”

Out with the old.....

Call me CrAzY but it's time for a change!

I started blogging around my 30th birthday and am turning 38 in just a few short weeks! It seems surreal to think I've been doing this for 8 yrs pretty dang consistently. In the last eight years I've never had a "Face Lift" on My Next Thirty Years. Well..... It's long over due and I'm excited to have a fresh, new place on the web. I hope you will continue to check in with me! And I hope to continue to inspire you with fun new creations!

I've been super, crazy busy since returning from my trip to AZ and am trying to get back on top of things. I should have my April Card Kit PEEKS ready to post tomorrow so check back. Sorry for the delay on that!

Anyhooo..... I think a new blog reveal calls for a fun scrappy giveaway!!!! What do you think? Leave a comment and say Hi and you will be entered in my drawing to win a bunch of new Bo Bunny goodies!! I will draw and contact the lucky winner on Monday the 25th! Woot!

Here's the projects I did for My Creative Scrapbook this month. The fabulous photos aren't mine. The amazing "Sawyer with the little duckling" photos were taken by the uber-talented Jamie Harper. And the cute little Noah Bunny is my friend Megan's sweet boy. The Campbell family photo is one that I took though! Aren't they the cutest?

Okay.... thanks for visiting my new blog! Toodles!♥
