New Project Life App

I know.... another post in only a few days.  Don't die of shock on me. But I had to come share something that might rock your world as hard as it has mine!! I've been scrapbooking for WELL OVER 17 years. I love it. I have this desire woven into my being to be creative and make things with my hands. It's a creative release and outlet for me that nothing else quite fulfills.

So this last year as I've focused on my full time Thrive business (link and info in tab above) you can imagine how my scrappy heart has suffered with not having a ton of creative time!  Well..... Becky Higgins and the Project Life team just rolled out a NEW Project Life App that you can create digital layouts in on your phone!
Now when I'm sitting at baseball practice or volleyball.... just waiting... like moms do... I can create a layout in a matter of minutes in the palm of my hand!  I could cry at how exciting this is!  I just uploaded this Duckling Photos layout to Persnickity Prints and ordered both the 12x12 and 8x8 sizes so I could see the difference. Their app is also super user friendly!!! I should have them in a few days so I can update with a review on that as well!  So excited! I love technology. It can be a very good thing too! Not just bad!  

Here's two layouts I made using the new app. The baseball one was my very first.  It's only $2.99 and comes with some great basics to work with. I'm sure I will add more later but for now.... I'm a happy camper!!!

Hi my crafty/creative friends! 
It's time for a little Paper Smooches challenge

I haven't played with paper and scissors
 and glue in FOREVER!!! 
When I ran across this challenge over at 
the Paper Smooches blog ... 
the colors instantly had me thinking about Halloween. 

The retail world has already been there for WEEKS!!! 
But this is not a problem for our house since we LOVE Halloween here!  Anyway... Paper Smooches digital stamps are super fun and I fell in love with this adorable OWL stamp!!! So I went to Work! 
With a little water color pencils and a fun Spellbinders Star Circle die... it turned out pretty cute I think. 
What do you think? Felt good to use my creative brain again!  Thanks for stopping by!
Oh and be sure to visit the
website to see all their amazing products and crafty inspiration!

Hogs and Kisses Bag Topper & Viva Las Vegas

So excited to share this fun little candy bag topper I made for Body to give his class mates next week!  He is loving them and also excited about signing them and handing them out to his teacher and friends! 
I've included the image below so you can just copy and paste it into a Word doc then size it however large or small you need it to be for your bags.  Then make sure to have your little person sign them before stapling them on. 
Be sure to trim them out by cutting just inside the gray line on the image.  Then, using an Xacto... carefully cut along the edge of the top of the piggy from one side of the hoof to the other.  Leaving a tiny white border like pictured.  Then it will pop up, fold down and be perfect for stapling to the tops of your candy bags.  Easy peasy! 
Here's the back so you can see that too!  Let me know how you like them or if you plan to use them!  I love them!  They are kinda fun!
Now off to get ready for my fabulous trip to
Las Vegas this weekend!!!
Not sure how many of you know this yet...
But I became a Promoter for a company called Le-Vel at the very end of October.  I've fallen in love with their THRIVE products and how much they are helping people. I've personally NEVER felt better and the ways this new position has impacted my life and my family brings me to tears quite frankly! 
Since I've started telling people about Thrive I have earned a new iPad mini, earned the company's $800/month luxury car bonus, earned a BIG Jawbone Jambox, earned over $1,000 of free product, earned this trip for two to Las Vegas AND earned thousands in cash already too!  I am not saying this to brag.... I PROMISE!  Just sharing what blessings this company has provided me and can YOU TOO!!!  If you or anyone you know is battling chronic pain issues, depression, anxiety, weightloss issues, mental clarity, lack of energy... and the list goes on.. then PLEASE get in touch with me! or message me on Facebook.  I am happy to send you a FREE 3-day sample of THRIVE.  Best thing I've ever taken or done!  PERIOD!!!  Have a great weekend y'all!! 
 Won't go a DAY without my THRIVE!!
