I haven't posted on my blog is so long, but today I'm participating in a tablescape for the FIRST TIME (at least I think it is).
For over a year, I have faithfully been reading Betweennapsontheporch, a blog mostly dedicated to tablescapes, decorating, etc.  Thursday is something I actually look forward to because there will be beautiful dishes, flowers, linens, etc.  
Today was such an exciting day, because...

I finally found these small plates that I have been on the hunt for since Oct/Nov.  These are featured on her blog quite often (there are other designs) and today there they were.  It was hard not to show how excited I was for fear that someone else would wonder "what has she spotted and do I need to grab them first".  
My tablescape/pictures are not great. I'm new to this and  too much glare from the light, but the plates are so pretty.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas!

Happy Birthday

I have so many images laying around that have been colored while watching tv, so today I decided to finally put one together. 
Tilda's Town is having a birthday challenge this week and what luck that one of my images is Tilda just finishing up a delicious chocolate cake for a friend.  She is merged with a Magnolia kitchen.  After going through my stash (hoarding) of papers, these pretty DCWV papers seemed perfect.  Sometimes I'm bad and color my image before selecting paper, but this time it worked out fine.
Stamps - Magnolia (Tilda and kitchen) Stampin Up (sentiment)
Papers - DCWV and PTI
Misc. - bling, ribbon, pop-up dots, nestabilities

Tilda picking cherries

I have a dear friend who shares my love for Magnolia stamps.  Her birthday is coming up and of course I had to go through my stash of Tildas.  This sweet Tilda is combined with the summer background stamp to create a cute scene.  There is a little tag tucked behind the image panel with a message.  Anxiously awaiting my Magnolia summer kit and to start creating!!!

Happy Birthday Bubbly

I have got to find time to stamp!!!!  With the weather turning nicer, I've been busy giving my patio a make over.  This sweet Stamping Bella was picked up a few weekends ago in Nashville.  Really love this line of Uptown Girls.  My daughter is going to a party next weekend and my grandson will be with me, so what better time to make a card.  Hope her friend likes the card.

RIP Annette

There would never have been High School Musicals if not for the Beach Party movies starring Annette and Frankie!!!  When I was a girl these were my favorite movies and when they are on tv (which isn't often) I will still watch them.  Annette was so pretty and girls wanted to look like her, have her haircut, find the bathing suits.  :)  She was the original Disney Darling.  How Brittney, Christina, Miley, and others can learn from her!!!!  When she became an adult she retired from show business to raise her 3 children.  RIP Annette

Love is in the air

This is a sweet digi from Saturated Canary and her name is Ava.  I love that name and always bug my daughter to name any potential granddaughter Ava.  hahaha
I wanted to make a Valentine’s Day card and she is a little out of the box, but I love it & will send this to my own daughter.
Happy New Year!
