It’s Wednesday again! Woo Hoo Happy Hump Day and Happy WOYWW! I’ve been busy filming for my YouTube channel and scrapbooking.
Here’s a shot of my desk looking at it from the right:

It’s Saturday night and I’m home alone. That does not happen very often. I’m glad it doesn’t but every once in awhile, it’s nice! So what did I do? I watched a couple of movies, hung a picture up in the Guest Room, messed around in the Command Center and made this:
I created a customized cut file in Cricut Design Space using an existing floral bundle but then added some bees and dates to customize a denim shirt that used to be my dad’s. My dad passed away in 2013 and we kept a few clothing items that were his. My daughter had a couple of his shirts and recently gave them to me. (I’m not sure why the shirt looks like another color denim in the two photos, but I swear it’s the same shirt.)
I’ve seen people decorate denim jackets for brides so I ran with that idea. The numbers added are his birth and death years and the bees are a play on my maiden name - Weatherby (the “by” is pronounced “bee”).
Pretty cool, huh? Especially since today would have been his 82nd birthday.
Happy Heavenly Birthday dad!

TGIF!! This week I am thankful for surprises. Well, technically this one wasn’t a good surprise, our garage refrigerator has stopped working, but...the reason why I’m thankful is because it gave the opportunity to organize the inside freezer and refrigerator. And also allowed us to see how fortunate we are.
We are able to fill two refrigerators of food/drink, etc., while others are not able to fill one.
Hello...I’ve been there. Many years we struggled with getting food on the table and did my imagination create some crazy meals, but we were fed - no complaints on my end for sure.
I hope you’re able to take a step back and look at all your blessings. And if you’re anywhere near me and need some eggs...come on over!
Happy Friday all. Leave a comment on what you are thankful for this week.

Happy Wednesday and Happy WOYWW! I missed last week and then noticed today that there was a linking situation over there so maybe I didn’t! Click on over to Stamping Ground to read more about WOYWW and the other deskers.

It’s time for another challenge at the Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge site. The challenge theme is Life in 3D.
I decided to make these cute round bags from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I made a few of them for my teacher friends. I used the apple from the Doodlecharms cartridge to embellish them.

Here’s another fun layout from the donut themed birthday party for my daughter and granddaughter. I love the paper pad I’m using for these layouts. The papers and extras are the perfect color scheme!
This layout is from a sketch at the SketchNScrap challenge site. It’s their September sketch. I originally cut papers to follow the sketch, but then quickly changed my mind by using the paper strips on the top of the patterned papers.

Donut Worry...Be Happy. What a great layout title! Here’s another layout from the donut themed party. For this layout, I followed the sketch $#435 at Sketches in Thyme.
Before adding the photos, I cut three strips of patterned paper/cardstock to completely cover the cardstock base. I used the same American Crafts paper pad as I used for the other layouts for this birthday party. I cut down the 4x6 photos to allow some space between them and to be able to see more of the background papers.
The title was made by matting white cardstock to pink cardstock circles and then stamping. I added the journaling box to the bottom of the 6x4 photo as in the sketch.

Happy Wednesday and happy WOYWW! I was on vacation last week so my desk is still nice and cleanish. I thought I’d share a few photos of the trip. We went from CA to UT to AZ and back. It was gorgeous!

On the second card, I stamped the sentiment first and added a piece of black washi tape between the sentiment and the rainbow panel. I added the red & green fishtail banners to the top left.
Now it’s your turn...link up your project to the LTSCB before the end of the month. What are you going to make?
If you're interested to see what I made using the other scrap strip panel, go to the Love To Craft Challenge Blog (LTCCB).
