Happy 16th Birthday to my son, Alan!!!

We celebrated Alan's Birthday last week.  Hard to believe he is 16.
This is what he looked like at 3 months.
Quite a difference!!!

Tilda with Daisy card for Sarah

I made this card for a friend who's son was recently burned.  It is hard to know what to say or do but wanted her to know I was thinking of her.

I used the following:
Stamp:  Tilda with daisy, other stamped images from my stash
Flowers; White rose I found in the wedding isle of my craft store and the daisy flower is made from quilling strips and cuttlebug daisy quilling, the forget-me-nots are punched from McGill punch and I glued a small bead in the middle.
The tag die is from Magnolia and flourish is from Cherry Lynn dies ( my favorite die that I have)
I colored the image with copic markers and used glitter pen to add some sparkle.

The Box Envelope to match

Mod Podge box

My first attempt with Mod Podge.  I used the glimmer bottle.  I noticed that the final product had a golden/yellow tinge.  Would look good for a vintage design.  I thought it was going to be a clear glimmer but it wasn't.  I made this little box for a 11 year old girl for her birthday.  I am planning on getting some lip gloss, hair accessories, ect.  to put in it when I give it to her.

I painted the inside white and then another coat of
pink glitter paint.

Home-made cinnamon pretzels!!!

Rachel and I decided to try and make some Auntie Annie's pretzels from the box mix we recently bought.  We love the store's version when we go to the mall and shop.  They turned out Wonderful!!! Not as greasy as the stores because we didn't add the butter to the top, just the cinnamon and sugar.
I would recommend this any day!

Hot from the oven and a cup of coffee!  What a great snack!
I ate one, not the whole plate by the way:)
