Some Valentine Fun

Trying to keep up with my blog now that all the fun is over for a week or two at PTI. I did a couple of Mish style notebooks for the teachers and just simple little "covers" for the M&M's for the kids in class. They just tear through them and throw them away so I hate using all my good stuff for that.


We had a few friends over on Sunday for some Valentine fun and the girls made Crayon Hearts and some little notebook cover and various cards or bookmarks with my supplies. We dipped fruit in chocolate and the Moms had coffee and homemade chocolate chip cookies!

Emily wanted me to put her crayon hearts on my blog so here they are and the bookmark she made for Daddy and hand print Valentine we made at school!


I made a quick Valentine for my sweetie using Dawn's Top 10 set and I like how it turned out, not too mushy!
I didn't get a card this year...but I did get Micheal Buble tickets!!!! The concert isn't until July but I don't mind, I am just excited to be going to see him again. We went to see him on Valentine's Day 11 years ago...he has come a long way since then. We have seen him one other time in between and he never disappoints!

So, now I am going to work on the February blog hop and hope to be crafting up a storm!
Thanks for looking,

PTI Paint by Number Challenge

This was a real challenge!

My colors were Kraft, Enchanted Evening, Spring Rain, Aqua Mist and white. I am not sure I got them right because I have a sampler pack of paper but it has been opened and the patterned paper I believe is Aqua Mist...I am hoping.

Just getting this in tonight, must get some sleep I am teaching 2nd grade tomorrow!

Thanks for looking,

PTI Embossed Resist Challenge

This is a record for me and the old blog...I am loving it. I even took the time to put in a custom header and picture and fancy up the was fun, maybe I am on a roll!

Anyway I tried the embossing technique on Nicole's new video and it was the first time I have tried this so I was pleased with the results.


It still seems to be missing something but I didn't have much time to play. The little charm heart is a little shrinky dink that I made with the girls for Valentines's Day last year and they made necklaces with the PTI Heart Print stamps. It was lots of fun and I made a few extra.

Anyway, thanks for looking and I am just loving all the festivities with Papertrey's anniversary...they rock!

Last PTI challenge for today.

I really love these colors, I don't use them much but this blue and orange just seem to say Birthday fun! Thought I would do a card but I guess I just wasn't in the mood for cards today!

Tried to work on the photos a bit and jazz things up. I used my Ott light that I have for sewing, not bad for how late it is.

Happy 3rd birthday Nicole and PTI, you certainly know how to make our wishes come true!

Thanks for stopping by.

PTI Anniversary Continued!

Here we go 2nd try this time with Becky's image. I just love this little scene, did it remind anyone else of Up! and Ellie's house going on an adventure. I thought at first of "Home Sweet Home" but for some reason I started to see this in a nursery welcoming a new little one home...a different kind of "birth" day!

I am having so much fun on our snow day, with school cancelled and I didn't have to sub...although I could use the money...especially with such a big release coming up!

Anyway, thanks for looking and I am off to play some more!

Happy Birthday PTI !!!!

I managed to get a project finished to add to Mr. Linky for PTI's birthday celebration! The first one is a small party favor pail using Pine's "rustic whimsy" cupcake. It just jumped out at me to be paired up with the paper I just got at Archivers! The biggest problem I always have is the photography...some day I will have a real camera!

Thanks for looking!
