Inside my cake....

See how tall the cake is?


Banana Pudding and Bananas between the layers.

My birthday cake!!

Don asked what kind of cake I wanted for my birthday.

I saw this kind of cake circulating Facebook over this past summer. It is a Banana Pudding Cake.

It looks better than the original cake on Facebook.

It is sooooo good!!!! Don added salt to the recipe because there was no salt in the cake recipe.

My eye doctor's office

 I love that they are proud to show their Christian beliefs.

Yes, they wished me a blessed " Merry CHRISTmas! " from the MD and all of the clinical staff members.

Cards for little girls...

I made these for my brother. He has some friends with little girls whose birthdays are coming up.

The first one has an acetate sheet over her so it will look like she in a picture frame with "glass" in front of her.

Christmas ornaments for sale...

Just need to add the snow

With the snow...
I made these last year as gifts for our families.

I decided to sell them this. Boy, have they been popular!!

5 large orders so far.

Contact me if you are interested in buying some.

They will have the year on it; also, if you want a monogrammed initial on it, if you so desire.

Upcycling a birthday napkin and used it on a card

Another November birthday ( for a close friend ). Tried to stay away from fall colors.

I upcycled an old birthday napkin by attaching it to a TH acrylic tag with modpodge.

I accented the flower centers with Liquid Pearls.

Birthday card for a coworker

I really like this Phyllis Harris stamp. She designed this for The Angel Company when they were still in business.

I did a spin-off idea playing with the butterfly already in the stamped image by accenting it with butterfly punches. I pinched the butterflies so they look like they are "flying" off the card.

I colored the stamped image with Copics.

The sentiment inside is from SU!.

My dad's gf birthday card...

Her birthday was the day after Thanksgiving so I wanted to use non-fall colors.

I love using this embossing folder. It is so versatile.

Stamped image colored with Memento markers.

Birthday card...

I am the designated card maker for our department for everyone's birthday.

This is a Christmas stamp ( the presents ). I colored them with non Christmas colors so it would not look so holiday-ish.

Whatcha' think?


Ink: SU!
Sentiment: Club Scrap
Stamped Image: The Angel Company

Ribbon: Offray
Markers: Copics and Memento

Fall foliage....

Our leaves are just now "peaking" in NC....

Our "snow" in NC.....Cotton fields ready to harvest!

I love driving by the farmers' fields full of cotton. It looks soooo pretty with the cotton "bursting" from the seed pods.

Besides the leaves turning in the fall, this is another thing I can't wait to see!!

Fall leaves

Trying to see how I can preserve some of the gorgeous fall foliage and use them on some cards of scrapbook pages.

Modgepodge works wonders.

Hello, Fall!!!

I got this door hanger at Wal-Mart.

I love it. I can keep this up through November, too.

God's Promise.....

I captured this rainbow at the invitational. The sprinklers on the soccer fields behind where we were standing at caught the morning sun just right to "make rainbows".

It was funny. Everyone around us stopped and watched the rainbows form all across the field.

God's Promise......

Dad and son bonding....

With my hubby and I attending our son's X Country Invitationals, it is nice that we can have some family time there.

Don helped Joseph get his shoe tag on his running shoes for the run.

As Joseph is growing up way too fast now, there are still some Dad and Son moments to still enjoy.

Note: by the way, Joseph broke his PR ( personal record ) by 2 minutes on this run!! WTG!!

I survived one of my summer classes. I forgot that summer classes are compressed studies. Three and half months of study comp...
