Sweet Home Alabama


Just stopped by to say HOWDY!!  I'm relaxing and enjoying natures best down here in Alabama.  OUr friend is a farmer so things are moving kind of slow, but I'm not complaining cause its so peaceful and quiet here.  It's really an awesome feeling to look out and see the beauty of the world and all god created.  

I was trying to upload some pictures but since we are in the middle of nowhere my signal is terrible,  I will add them tomorrow when we get to our next stop on the journey GEORGIA!

I cant wait to get back home and create some layouts form some of my pictures.  Next stop on our journey will be Alabama!  If I can  I will stop by in a few days and share some  more pictures.

It's a wrap

Today was a very emotional day for me.  Why you ask....Well because my BABY graduated from High School.  It was emotional because he struggled all through high school and was told by a few that he would not make it.  BUT  My GOD is GOOD and by his grace my son is a High School graduate and will enter into college in the fall.

I cried all day; before the ceremony, during the ceremony, after the ceremony and I'm still crying.  But this cry feels so good!  I'm so proud of him, but most importantly he is proud of himself!!!

I will add the official pictures later!
Oh yea he is also the youngest of four and the last one in the house... so I told my hubby let the games begin LOL!!!!
Today is Thursday and that means it's oldie but goodie day at Catch the Bug Challenge blog

My first tutorial

Hello Scrapping and Stamping Friends

Today is my turn to do a tutorial for the Bugaboo Challenge Blog. I chose to share a Ribbon Flower Technique that I found while trolling around on You Tube one day, I love flowers and making them is so much fun ,so I am loving this!! 

Here's what you will need;
a 12 inch strip of ribbon, glue dots and a needle with embroidery floss.

the first thing you need to do is start weaving your needle through the ribbon back and forth, as shown

keep sewing all the way to the end of the ribbon strip

when you have finished sewing all the way to the end you start pulling on the embroidery floss from both ends

pull and pull until the embroidery floss is very tight, then tie a knot

next turn the edges down towards the back and glue them together with a couple of glue dots

cut the strings off, then flatten the flower out a bit. add a button or brad

and here are a few of my finished ribbon flowers!!
