Mickey and Me Blog Hop!

Today we are celebrating a fellow crafter's birthday, along with Mickey Mouse's birthday! Rexann's birthday is today, November 19!  Mickey Mouse's birthday was yesterday, the 18th.  We have a great line up of bloggers for you that are all going to share projects relating to birthdays and Mickey Mouse.   These ladies are great crafters!  I hope you will join us for the hop and leave comments for everyone with your thoughts about their project!   The birthday girl is stop #5 so be sure to stop there!

I participated in a Recipe Swap and decided to make Mickey's Skor Bars and that is my post for today.

I used Sandylion Santa Mickey Paper and Michaels Recollections for the rest.

Created a Mickey Santa using Paper Dolls Dress up and Mickey and Friends.  I found making Mickey into a Santa far more challenging than I thought he would be!  I hope you like him!

The next stop on the Hop is Lead at My Craft and Chat Cafe

Seeing as Halloween is just around the corner I decided to make a Halloween card today for the Hop!

I used the Close to My Heart Witch from the Wicked set.  I stamped it on orange paper and embossed it with Stampendous Kaleidoscope embossing powder.

I then cut a frame from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.  I just opened it for this Hop and can tell it is going to be one of my favorites.  The frame is cut from MakingMemories Toil & Trouble paper pack.

I placed the frame on top of the witch image and raised it with pop dots.

I then cut a piece of paper from the Debbie Mumm - Harvest & Holiday paper pack for my background.  Pop doted my frame and witch to the background

I added some ribbon that I got at Michaels and a sentiment out of the same orange card stock!

And it's finished!  Here are some close up pics to show the detail

  I would love to hear your feedback!

In honour of this Blog Hop I have some blog candy!  A package of the paper I used for the frame and some embellishments.  In order to win you need to follow my blog and leave a comment under today's and tomorrow's posts.  I will use random org to choose on Sunday, October 16th.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

New Camera

I decided to join the world of DSLR camera.,

I bought a Canon T3...

I was at my parents house the other day messing around with my camera.  They have a porcelain clown that sits on a wine rack wrought iron bike. This is the furthest back I took a picture...just to give you an idea of what he looks like.

The point of my post is that I took a close up shot of his face......I am amazed at the quality of the picture.  I have taken some good pics with my new camera but this one is by far my Favorite!

Father-in-Law's Birthday Card

My Husband asked me to make a card for my father in law for his birthday.

Have a great day!

My First Tear Bear

In honour of National Scrapbooking Day I thought I would try something new that I had never tried before.

This is my first tear bear.  Paper is from The Beary Scrap their paper is thick and works awesome.  The eyes and nose is download from their free download section.

I am struggling with the fluffing part but practice makes perfect I would assume.

Hope you like my bear!

Meeting Santa Layouts

Not much to post

Sorry I haven't posted in a week or so.....I am going to a scrapbooking weekend next weekend so

I am preparing my pictures and papers for my layouts I hope to get done next weekend.

I have had my kids pictures taken with Santa every year and have decided I am going to create a scrapbook of them.  My 15 year old daughter hasn't been too keen in the past couple years to get her picture taken but I tell her that as long as she lives in my house then she will have her pictures taken with Santa!  Buys me a couple more years.

It's amazing watching them grow and change when every year at the same time of the year they have their pictures done.

So stay tuned and make sure you come back!

I promise that I will have some stuff to show you after next weekend!
