Earth Day - recycle Blog Hop!

Something recycled, something repurposed, whether it’s a milk jug turned in to a scoop, or a tin can made in to a pencil holder. Maybe your kids planted some trees to help the environment, or maybe you did. There are tons of ways to get greener in everyday life. Today we are showing off our creations to celebrate Earth Day 2013. If you’re just starting here make sure to head over to the beginning at My Life in Arts’ n Crafts’. I hear she’s giving away some goodies!

My recycle is earrings made from pop cans!
Don't you love them?

Even Crosses!

Die Cuttin Diva's Guest Post

Today I am a Guest Designer over at Die Cuttin Divas.

The theme is pastels.
I chose a pastel purple for my paper.

I used the New Arrival to cut out my baby onesie.  This is a baby book for my granddaughter Adelyn. 

The tag will be great for Aimee to put the all of the birth information on and she can even flip it over and put a picture of the baby on the tag.

The stork is adorable!  He is much cuter in person!
He is made out of felt.

So get out your pastels and make die cut away.  Head on over to
and link up your projects!

Camo picture frame

Wanted to share with you a picture frame that I made over the weekend. 

This is a framed picture of the deer that she took during youth hunting day in 2012.  

added stickles to the center of the button for more depth.
Don't you just love that Peachy Keen face in that flower?

I wanted to make sure that the year that she killed the deer was on the frame so she would know what year it was.

This is the calendar page that Kailtyn made her.  You can click on the picture to make it larger.  
I think that she did an awesome job!

used pop dots to make some of the flowers stand out a bit more.  

Evelyn was ticked with her gifts from Kaitlyn and I.
