My kids eat freezies all year round, I always make sure I stock up at the end of summer.  Is it too early to start thinking of summer?

I turned a mason jar into a freezie holder for summer.  I used some of my old Bella Blvd stash.

Here's hoping summer comes soon!  Thanks for stopping by.

Hi all and welcome to the Imaginisce wrapping with The Twinery blog hop! I really love using twine on my projects it always adds that perfect finishing touch, but for this layout I really wanted to make the twine shine.

My youngest son is really into making Popsicles right now, we've tried juices, yogurt, pop just about anything.  He loves the plain water (or icicles as I call them) and Root beer ones the best.

To start my layout I used my Silhouette to cut out some Popsicle shapes and covered them with different colored twines.

Then to make them look icy I sprayed them with shimmer mist and then to make sure the edges didn't fray and to make them look even more like Popsicles I added Glossy Accents around the edges and dipped them in clear chunky glitter.

The Endless Summer collection by Imaginisce is perfect for all your summer pages and has some awesome Popsicle paper and die cuts. 


 Thanks for stopping by on the hop today.  For more amazing projects stop by the other designers blogs:

With Mother's day coming up I have been making a few Mother's Day gifts for my Mom and my Mother-In-Law.
I made these butterfly spool holders for my Mom, hope she likes them.  I covered some wooden spools with twine and added letter stickers that spell MOM.
I added some butterflies and wooden hearts to some wire for decoration.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is Life

This year I am doing a mini album a month for all my favorite Instagram photos.  I love doing mini albums, they are so fun and quick to do.  This is the one for January - I made it a few months ago just haven't had a chance to post it here.

I decided every month I would use my favorite collection and for this month it was the Dear Lizzy Fifth and Frolic Collection, I really love the colors and patterns in this collection.

For the inside pages I just added patterned paper frames and a few embellishments, the photo below is of my 10 year old showing my Mom how to use her new Ipad Mini lol.

I added some of my favorite new things like this new photo app that makes your photos look like comic books.

I couldn't believe they made the boys practice soccer in the snow.  They were freezing!

I love the arrow embellishments in this collection!

My cat Buttons, she is so adorable :)

I love that these two are still such good friends.

We babysat Alison a few times and they brought us cake pops - yum!

My clean crafting space - it never looks like this :)

My oldest loves Rugby just look at the dirt all over and the bog smile.

Buttons - love them :)

My kids love going to get their hair cut at Sandra's - We have been friends for almost 14 years and I get a chance to hang out and chat. 

Magic the Gathering is big at our house and the boys couldn't wait to get the 2013 cards.

Well that was my month in a nut shell!  Thanks for stopping by.
