New Home and No Layer card


Before I get to the Paper Pretties challenge/card. I would like to share with you what I have been doing this week……MOVING!!  We are finally homeowners and have been busy painting rooms and moving in! 

And you will want to keep tabs on my blog because I have an awesome giveaway in store just to celebrate our move! Can’t say when the giveaway will happen as I am working on the details right now but let’s just say you won’t be disappointed!! (I’m so excited about it)

Here is just a snippet of what our house looks like from the front yard.


And here is a tease of one of the rooms that got repainted: (yes, I let the kids help paint..right down to the 5 yr. old!)

Jorden painting her side of the room.

Allie thought her name needed to be on the wall so everyone would know it was her room too.

Carmen and her friend showing off their art work.

Benjamin hard at work in a PINK room!

K, now that I made you curious to what the other rooms look like and that I’ll be having an awesome giveaway…. It’s time again for another Paper Pretties challenge!  This week it is to make a no layer card. Yup, that’s right… a single layer card!!

I used Graduation Fairy Sofie as oldest had graduation parties to attend to these past few weeks. I paper pieced Sofie and colored her with copics. Dry embossed a frame around her and stamped the sentiment on the side. For my top, I did a faux layer by sponging over a piece of scrap paper that I had used a border punch on. I then added bling and some ribbon.


             Thanks for stopping by!
