My Little Monkey

OK, I took the advice of those who responded to my post the other day in reference to this gift for my friend who lost her 18 year old son to complications from coolies anemia. I kept the angel wings on the monkey and added the title. I love the way it came out, it is so much better in person. I hope she likes it and does not get upset.
She always called him her little Monkey.
I was going to crackle paint the frame, but I didn't have time as I have to give it to her tomorrow & I just got the frame last night. (nothing like rushing right!!)
I will ask her if she would like it crackled & then I will do it for her if she wants.
Thanks for visiting!

Need some advice

I made this layout as a gift for a friend that lost her 18 yr old son 4 years ago to a blood disease.
(Wish it was a better picture)
When he was little she would call him her little monkey.
The advice I need is... do I put, My little Monkey as the title or do I leave it w/o a title?
I know the colors are girly but I made it to match the colors of her bedroom where I think she would keep it & I figure she could put 2 of her favorite pictures of him as a little one in black & white.
I am going to put it in a shadowbox frame that I am going to crackle paint, she is into shabby chic and the distressed look.
Also, I added Angels wings to the Monkey because now he is an angel watching over her. Do you think that is too much?
Need some help please.

Who stole the cookie from the cookie tray??

My Mom and I bake cookies every year and when they come out of the oven, we stick them outside on a banquet table to cool.
Well, this year we had 3 very interested visitors...

One of them was successful too...
Aren't they just a little cute?!!

Don't be grossed out, that was the only one he touched and he got to keep it....LOL
Then we put Kira on squirrel patrol to scare them away when they got anywhere near the table.
The kids had a blast watching the squirrels, my cat too!

Class and Teachers Gift ~ 2nd post

Kira and I made 17 of these adorable cocoa treat holders for her classmates.  The file is from Treasure Box Designs, she is having a %55 off of $25 for the 12 days of Christmas sale and there were a few files I could not resist.  Since I was looking for one of these, I went ahead and purchased it, it wound up only costing me a dollar and change.  Isn't it just too cute and we added a candy cane to stir their hot cocoa!

I made this adorable crayon wreath for Kira's teacher to hang in the classroom.
I found this awesome little cutie months ago on Jill's Blog.

I scrap lifted her exact design I loved it so much!!!!
All but the apple and the words are from 
She is having a TOTALLY AWESOME 70% off winter sale!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Disney Freezer Paper T-shirt's

These are the T-shirt that I made for our trip to Disney World. I didn't add  the "Disney World" title, it was tearing the freezer paper.
I used the scut2 file for my daughter's and my shirt that Michelle was so nice to share with me, she shares some great files...check her out!
 Yes, we are going to be one of those corny families that wears matching shirts.
I was told that was totally acceptable when in Disney, although my husband may not think so.  LOL
He thinks I am corny, but I think he will wear it to make my daughter and I happy.
My daughter and I have red shirts with the Minnie shilouttes and I i-rocked Minnie's bow
this is the front...
this is the back...
I put our last name (god forbid either of my kids get seperated they can be identified) and the 10 stands for year we visited.
Here is my sons shirts, I made his and my husbad the same... I just recently added the fireworks to theirs because I hit my hubby's shirt with the brush and left a black mark... so the fireworks were born to cover the mark and I added it to my sons so he could match Daddy. The back will be the last name and #10.

I was Boo'd on Halloween ~ Blog candy potential ~3rd post today

by the Glue Arts Glue Girl and this is what was left on my porch...
I am usually never lucky, but the past few weeks, blog land has been very good to me.
On another note... you've heard the phrase "pay it forward" well, I am trying to put together my own "little" blog candy for when I reach 100 followers.
I wish it could be a giant box of goodies, but I am super strapped for money right now & we are going to Disney in little over 2 weeks & I need every spare penny I can save. (not that I even have many spares) LOL!
So stay tunned.
Thanks for visiting!

Updated Confirmation Card - see post below too

OK, the blank space in the upper right hand corner was bothering me. I thought about a flourish last night when making it, but thought "nah that would be to girly", but then I got a comment from the lovely Lelia stating the same thing I was thinking, so I went for it!
I like it... religious art is beautiful & not gender specific, so this is a piece of religous art! :o)
I used perfect medium to stamp this beautiful corner flourish that I won from Yolie a while back (thanks Yolie) & I forgot to mention the ever so talented Penny Ducan (sorry Penny)... I used one her many nesting patterns for the sentiment mats on the front & inside of the card.
Looks better right?

Confirmation Card for a Boy

I made this for one of my neighbors, her son is making his confirmation... I feel like it needs something... the upper right hand corner looks too empty. I wanted to keep it simple since it is for a boy, but I think I could have done something else to it.
What do you think?
I added an envelope inside to put some cash.
Thanks for stopping by.

A few things rolled into one post...

First I wanted to say thank you to all who voted for my sons costume! They judge on 11/8 and notify the winner on 11/12, so fingers crossed!
I wanted to share a cool little thing called a Birthday Calculator... scroll below the advertisements and input your birthday info...
You might want to use tid~bits from it in a Birthday LO or a card...
check it out, it's pretty cool!
Here is a photo of my kido's on Halloween... the Pretty witch (w/ a bad streak) and the little frog that she is boiling away in her cauldron.
A wreath I made for Thanksgiving. Sorry for the flash.

A freezer paper T-shirt that I made for my Dad for his Birthday.
He owns an Auto body shop and on Fridays a few guys congregate there at 5pm to have a few beers...
they call it Beer o'clock...
I had to make this when I saw an SVG of clock faces on
Michelle's Adventures with Digital Creations Blog
I deleted the 5 & replaced it with a mug of beer that I converted into an svg.

And lastly...look at this amazing Halloween Blog Candy that I won from
Debbie @ Love Life's Little Pleasures Blog.
She packed the box with tons of goodies!!
Thanks again Debbie!

Thanks for stopping by!
