Hello my Crafty Friends, I am so happy you all have decided to join us on the Santa Baby Blog Hop, great prizes, beautiful projects, and a ton of ideas for you to try. I am called by my friends a mini album addict, lol, yes I admit that is true, I do make quite a few of these, so today I am going to share with you another mini I designed and cut on my beloved Cameo and MTC software. These are quick, easy and the possibilities are limitless.
It is a mini ornament album.
SO this a view of the front cover, 

pages 1 and 2
pages 3 and 4
Pages 5 and 6

page 7

back cover....With my file you may add as many or as few pages as you like. You may also add pockets and tags, the possibilities for you make this a truly one of a kind work of art is at your fingertips,
The ornament was designed by myself in my Cameo program and cut from chipboard. The papers used come from K&Company, and some stock paper from no other than Hobby Lobby... The flourishes and design elements are also cut on Cameo, the photo mats were cut from card stock using my Spellbinders and Sizzix.. Inks are from none other than Tim Holtz, a few gold gel pens to decorate the elements and give it holiday sparkle. After that all you need is a binder ring to bind and add ribbons and charms to the ring and ribbons, or whatever you would like to add. If you would like any of the files from this project or any others from my blog you can find me by emailing or the Santa baby facebook group. I am the blog for you to visit, so if you started here click on Connie and you will be at the beginning of the hop. I am thrilled you all stopped by, have a wonderful day and a Happy and safe holiday Season

Here's our Jolly line up in case you get lost.

Happy Spring my crafty friends....It has been awhile since my last post, where does the time go? I have had some home and health issues I have been dealing with in the previous months, but all is finding harmony again, I am on the mend and ready once again to take on the world. I have so missed my craft room and sticky, inky messy piles of fun.  So as a first post in sometime I have decided to let you know what I have been up to in last week or so. With my brand new Cameo, my mojo is slowly returning, and my new shipment of shiny beads I am ready to get this show on the road.
I have started once again playing in my art journals, I have really missed my art journals. So here are 2 pages I completed.  It was so amazing to play with all the inks and mediums once again. To me an Art journal is a place to record your thoughts, emotions and feelings as they are happening. It is great therapy to be able to put to paper the good, the bad and the ugly. Today I was having one of those moments and awaiting my creative spark to return, as I was putting the color down it hit me.  None of us or very few go through life with everything roses every day all day, we have to grab a hold of that moment and live it the best we can in that second. I decided to not feel bad for myself and went looking for my MOJO! This is what I found...
SO Carpe Diem to you....Seize the day
