My Mum LOVES JCPenny!!

My Mum arrived Monday night and we have already had 2 full days of shopping at JC Penny - 2 different ones at that! This is a photo of me carrying all of the items we wanted to try on. My Mum has just had an operation on her foot so I was getting a very good workout! I have been having a lot of fun shopping :) I apologize for the lack of cards on my blog lately, I just can't find the time!!! Having too much fun with my Mum. I will be popping in every now and then and maybe a card will be made but no promises. My Mum has flown all the way from the UK (5,000 miles) and so I want to spend all of my time with her. I'm sure you understand ;)

Kitchen - Phase 2


This is why I haven't been blogging lately - LOTS of very late nights refacing my kitchen. I am SO happy with it. We got the door from Reface Depot online they sell the same door that Home Depot do but for a fraction of the price. As you can see we started with the countertops (shown in the before photo on the right)

Let me know what you think :)

Lizzie Anne Design Challenge #22

I have been wanting to use this cupcake since I got it! This is for the Lizzie Anne Design challenge this week. The twist was to add some circles. This card was a challenge for me, I had to tell myself to stop - don't add anything else. I pat myself on the back for that but I am itching to add something - I don't know what but something! I'm not good at clean and simple - I need BLING! Hahahaha! i bet it has some added before this day ends :D
