No sentiment christmas card.... Flamingo scraps GDT post


I'm so excited to be sharing again. Today I am going to share a card with no sentiment. The card is standard size. I sometimes have a hard time finding the perfect sentiment for a card so most of them go without. I think Websters Pages caters perfectly to cards and projects. The papers are so beautiful. For my card I used the Waiting for Santa papers. I used a few different papers from the line and I used the 6x6 papers. I did some fussy cutting and cut out the fabulous dress form. I used a bloomer and some other flowers. I also used some liquid pearls. I used some lace I had in my stash and the ribbon is some of the fabulous cheap trims. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch. I hope you guys enjoy and I hope that this inspires you to create.

You can get some of the supplies used at flamingo scraps store. also be sure to be a follower on their blog.

Flamingo 5!!


Hello everyone. Today I bring you a project I created for the fabulous Flamingo scraps store. It was so much fun to create it. Also everyone else had the same products and its so fun to see everyone else's projects so make sure you go check out the blog.

Here is a list of products I was given to make the project.
December's Flamingo Five items are:
1 and 2. Two sheets pf Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co. patterned paper
3. Garnet elines
4. Gunmetal stickles
5. Grab bag with blue primas, red primas, blue lace and a Maya Road Star stickpin

I also used a few papers from my own stash. The picture was taken last year. We didnt get family photos this year which im pretty bummed about but we got alot of pictures last year 137 to be exact.... :) So I think skipping a year isnt going to be that bad.

The challenge is dress a dress form. I instantly thought of my wire naked dress form sitting on my desk. I worked on it for a few days here and there and finally I was happy with it.

BIG NEWS!!!!! and a update

Most of you know the news already but some of you might not. I wanted to wait until i went to the doctor but thats still 2 weeks away. We are so excited! oh yeah the news!! IM PREGNANT!!!! I have had some sad turn outs in the past and most of you know that. So to say that im almost 8 weeks(according to a online calculator) is big news. We are taking it day by day and hoping and praying for the best. I have hinted there is going to be a baby sometime in the future to Mateo and he is super excited. Every person that walks by our apartment or knocks on the door or calls my phone "theres the baby....the babies here mom" Its so cute. We are hoping for a healthy baby. I would love to have a little girl but healthy is all that matters to me. I will keep everyone posted as the days go by. I think once I have gone to the doctor I might start a pregnancy blog..... not sure I can barely keep up with this one!! hehehe!! I am due about May 23. yay.....

In other news Mateo will be ***gulp*** 4 on November 5th! I cant believe how fast the time goes. But I am so blessed to beable to stay home with him so I can cherish each moment. We are going to go to Bates Nut Farm on wednesday to go pick some pumpkins and maybe have a little picnic. For Mateo's birthday we will be going to the zoo for the very first time. He is super excited. I gave him the choice to either go to disneyland again or to the zoo. Im glad he chose the zoo because its 10 times cheaper....haha! Im not sure if we will be having a b-day party for him. We want to only give him 1 choice. Besides he doesnt really have many little friends to invite.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Picture time :) some pictures of what we were up to over the summer!
