Sorry I have not updated lately!  It is a crazy time of year!  but I do love it!  The anticipation, the kids getting anxious, the smiles on peoples faces....

I wanted to share some more layouts I created with this months kit from the Flying Unicorn!

I LOVED the Tereasa Collins Vintage Findings in this months kit!  The paper is perfect for layering and the embellishments are awesome.  Here is one about our youngest.....

In the kit was also some Anna Griffin papers......perfect for this photo of my dad and his great grandson....a precious photo.  Maggi hosted a challenges this month to use poetry on your page and I love this poem

There was also a few sheets of Cosmo Cricket.... talk about a versatile kit!  This is my sister in law and her granddaughter!

Also this month The Flying Unicorn sponsored CSI color challenge blog.....VERY cool site and IC reated two layouts for it....The first one used Riddersholm papers and my Grandfather

The next one I used Glitz Designs papers and Manor house flowers.....this is our oldest....I must admit I love the way it turned out

Christmas Decor with Graphic 45

I was lucky enough to receive Graphic 45's Nutcracker Sweet as this months product spotlight!  LOVE this line...the colors are vibrant, and the designs are awesome....I wanted to do something a little different this month and decided to create some home decor items!


the wreath

o create the wreath I used 7 sheets of double sided paper and a 10" foam wreath shape, and pearl glimmer mist!

The tree
The tree took 3 sheets of paper, a 12" foam form, texture paint and a few ornaments for small trees.  I sprayed the foam form with green glimmer mist

the ornaments

To make the ornaments you would need, 3 sheets of double sided paper, clear bulbs, and glitter!

I have put these items up for bid for the Flying Unicorn Gives back, and you can bid here with all proceeds going to the Anne Carlsen Center.  Please take a moment to read about all the fabulous work that is done there!

hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day!  This months kit was ful of gorgeous papers and a too fun OTP!  Lets start with my OTP

I stared at my OTP for a day....I LOVED it but to tell the truth I was a little worried...the ladies on this incredible team ALWAYS rock the OTP!  I wanted to stick with teh Christmas theme so I created this
I had some Christmas picks which I glued on, added the word 'JOY' and used gold and red glimmer mist on the Kaiser wood stars (you can find them at the Unicorn store) and voila I have a a Christmas display for my wall!
here is some of the details
I also had fun creating with the Authentique peaceful line that had papers in this months kit!  Awesome line
The first one I created I layered a few of teh papers, distressed the edges, used the brink stencil -available at the store - and some texture paint from my stash and made some splatters for Tammy's challenge this month!  Before now I had not tried this technique but man I love the results!  I added the prima bird, the corner bling and the canvas flags all from the kit!

Also in this kit were some papers I was coveting....the Tereasa Collins Vintage Findings....wow gorgeous stuff!  The papers are fabulous and so are the embellishments....  I LOVE the gold accents!
I inked all the edges of the papers, folded over the corner on one of the papers (I used a ot of hot glue to keep it from letting go) and added the corner bling.  I also used the Vintage finds Border Strips to create a couple of rosettes and I altered the Vintage Finds Paper Flowers into my own flower!

If there is any kindness I can show, any good thing I can do to any fellow human being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.

William Penn

Together, we will make a difference.
The Anne Carlsen Center is dedicated to “Nurturing abilities. Changing Lives."

Dr. Anne Carlsen, our namesake and former administrator, believed in the worth of every individual. Throughout her life she exemplified strength and nurturing, advocating for individuals with disabilities, and teaching them how to advocate for themselves, while creating a life of independence.

The Anne Carlsen Center offers a rich tradition of educational, residential, therapeutic, evaluation, and community-based services. Our individualized services include care for individuals — and families — of all ages with cerebral palsy; orthopedic, vision and hearing disabilities; autism, pervasive, and other behavior disorders; and other medical acuities.

The Center’s education program provides students with a safe, secure and loving atmosphere in which they can learn and grow. The Center is approved and accredited through the ND Dept of Public Instruction as a K-12 school.

The Student Council consists of a team of Anne Carlsen students dedicated to helping their fellow peers, classmates and friends. Student Council fund raises throughout the year to help students pay for necessities such as clothing, shoes, winter gear, school supplies or other needs they may not have the funds to cover for themselves. Fundraising also provides a yearbook at no cost to each and every student at the Anne Carlsen Center.
