Hello, friend. - The Rubber Cafe

Here is Roman's favorite card of the month!  
He chose this card as the second card to share over at The Rubber Cafe.  It is fun to have him involved in what I do, even if it is a small contribution.  He loves to help, and I love him helping.  Instead of the vintage feel with this camera stamp, I went with a more colorful approach.  Stop over to The Rubber Cafe blog for more information.

Thinking of You - The Cut Shoppe team up with Neat & Tangled

You know, the best part of being on some of the design teams is the teaming up for blog hops or sharing product.  We get to try and create with other items that we may not be familiar with or may not have had a chance to purchase yet.  It is fun.  In this case, The Cut Shoppe is teaming up with Neat & Tangled for the week.  Both Design Teams are creating with each others product, trying to incorporate them both on the same project.  
Today I have created a card.  It is over on The Cut Shoppe blog.

Pure Happiness - A Flair for Buttons

Good Morning.  I think.  It is Monday. 
 I am not a fan of those.  Neither is my boy who struggles to get out of bed.  
Today I am sharing a layout over on the A Flair for Buttons Blog using some of my favorite flair and the beautiful new line from Elle's Studio - Cienna that can be purchased over at Paper Issues.  If you use code: Mary-Ann you will get 20% off. 
Hope you will drop by and take a look.

Head on over to A Flair for Buttons Etsy store to grab some of the new flair that Shelley just added to the store.

Wall Re-do - mambi

Ok, my entry from the garage from the kitchen is narrow and tight.  
It was in desperate need of a re-do.  When I received the Special Edition DIY Gallery Art Pads from mambi,  
I headed out to make some changes.  


As a family, over coffee one weekend morning, we collectively picked what we wanted on the wall.


I used vintage frames to house the art.  I used wash tape to secure the papers to the back of the frames since there was no glass.  This way, I can remove the tape, switch out the art without harming anything.  I also added a few smaller pieces to the metal board with washi as well.  

This area needed to remain practical because this is where we keep our schedules and chore charts.  Having a collection of colorful pens nearby, makes it easy to color code activities.

I hope you have enjoyed my very small makeover.  It is fun to change things. 
Problem is, it starts a dominos effect and it is hard to stop once you get going.
