Now on with the hop!

I decided to use this opportunity to catch up on scrapbooking!  First off let me say Masculine is not the easiest thing for me.  I often have a hard time coming up with something "MANLY".  LOL  I remembered taking this pics of my DH on Mother's Day in the evening after all the festivities were over.   We went walk to the river batcher for him to fish.  BTW this is in New Orleans by the Mississippi River.  The actual river is on the other side of those trees and we are standing on the levee that keeps the river from flooding the area.  He loves to fish and hunt!  Those are his two favorite pass times so needless to say he was happy!  LOL 

Don't forget to comment on this post from your chance to win.
Your next stop is my super sweet wonderfully talented friend HAIDEE!

Mid-Week Post

Hi!  I hope this finds everyone well! 

As you know the baby shower for my (step) daughter was this past weekend and I have a few more pics to show you.  When I do get around to uploading the good pics from my camera (these are from my phone) I'll post some more. 

These are some more of the decorations I made:

Christina created the back drop herself.  She did a great job! 

This is the finished centerpiece with the peanuts in it.  

She saw these banners on pinterest and I basically recreated them with a little tweak here and there using my Cameo and/or my Cricut!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good day!

Baby Shower Prep

I know right!  Don't fall down, I'm posting and it isn't a blog hop.  I've been super busy with my 7 grand babies, family and work!  I'm finding time to do some crafting again even if it is to make things for birthdays and showers.  LOL

I've been working on birthday invites for my grandson Cayden who is going to be three this year and baby shower things for my daughter Christina who is having her first bundle of joy in October!  That's right by November I will be Nana to 9! Whew!!!!!

So here are a couple of things I've been working on:

These are the tags to go on the favors. 
I used my Cameo and my Cricut to create these.

These will be the centerpieces.  This one is jut an example it's not complete.  But you get the idea!  LOL

The shower is Saturday so I'll be sure to post pics of everything completed!!!!

Have a great day!
