Golfer's LIFE!

Hey there everyone!!  So glad you stopped by today; if you are a follower of mine on Facebook you will know that I am a fan of the "golf" game!!  My skills may not be LPGA relevant but I am pretty good with getting the ball to the hole!! :o)  I started playing about two years ago to find a way to SEE my husband for more hours during the day.....because that's where he would be..LOL........and today I'm getting out there without him trying to improve my game!!  Go figure!

Any who, I divert; this week's project for The Cutting Cafe features the Golf Word Shaped Card Set.  I was really attracted to this file because its related to a sport I'm loving right now.  Before I get into pics let me just say that I have been having an awesome experience designing for Regina's shop and feel so blessed with the opportunity; and I thank each and everyone of you for supporting me through this journey with your views and lovely comments!!

This week's post also marks the "end" of the dt term; but I am happy to announce that I will be continuing on with the team until October 2014 to bring you more projects of inspiration!!  So stay tuned for upcoming projects!!  Ok, so without further ado on to my mini album!!

I created this mini album to record the courses we visit this year along with the score cards to keep track of my progress.  The letters and sentiment at the bottom both come from the Card Set linked above.  I had this golfer in my Silhouette files so I used it to cut out and attached the golfer teeing off inside the scallop oval.

There are 8 paper bag pages included in this album from March to October which is the months in which we play most.  I used a two pieces of light-weight chipboard for the back and front covers.  Its also worth mentioning that I cut the scallop oval out of cork board paper from DCWV and a Spellbinders die.

Each page is pretty basic inside for now because I intend to add a picture from each place we visit during that month to the front page of each paper bag folder; you know, add as I go....its gonna be so much fun!!

The score cards are just the perfect size to fit inside the pockets, I'm loving this project and how it turned out!!  Do you have a favorite summer time activity that you just LOVE!??

Well, thank you again so very much for stopping by today and hanging out with me!!  To mark the end of this design team term, I'd like to have a GIVEAWAY!!  Are you down??!!  If you'd like to be entered to win a $10 gift certificate to shop at The Cutting Cafe all you need to do is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post letting me know what is your favorite "summertime" activity!!  Winner will be selected on Wednesday, May 7, 2014.  Good Luck!!

The "First Years" - a Moment in Time

Hey there friends!  I'm here with a memory keepsake today.  I created a photo book to capture the early years of my daughter's childhood!! I used the Numbers Window Cards from The Cutting Cafe.  The set comes with numbers zero to 9; I created a card for each year but without cutting the number out.  Instead I used my Silhouette to color in the numbered area and print then cut each one.  I added a mat and journal page to the inside of each card then bound them together on its edge with some seam-binding and ribbon.

Each one captures a sentiment "most likely" said at that age, which I thought was cute because my daughter was definitely independent and opinionated during these years!!  LOL, I love it though.

I hope you were inspired to go create something like this to remember moments in time with your little ones too!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

"Nice Cheesy Smile" - Shadow Box

Hey there friends, just popping in to share this project with you I created using the Shadow/Configuration Box file from "The Cutting Cafe"!  I adore this project, I know I'm bias (heehee), but it was really easy to cut and put together.  I created this shadow box:

I used some of my favorite pictures of my husband and I inside; this year we have been together for 23yrs!  I used two brads "2" and "3" to mark the occasion.

On the left I added a glass bead charm I made; it went with this project really well.  Some tulle and flowers accent other areas of each box section.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and checking out my project.  Head on over to The Cutting Cafe for this file and get creating!!
