DCWV March Stackaholic Top 10 for Layouts AND Cards!

Hi Folks!  I'm back again a day later as promised.  Today I wanted to share with you some really great news that I am so proud of!  Once again I entered the DCWV Stackaholic Challenge for March.  I made a layout and a card and was thinking that I'd be thrilled if either one was to win the honour of being chosen in the Top 10.   Guess what?  They both made it into the Top 10.  I am thrilled beyond words.  Here is the link showing all of the Top 10 for both cards and layouts.  What a great job everyone!  Congrats to all! 
This is my layout. 

This is my card. 

I hope you enjoyed them and I will see you back here again tomorrow as I continue updating to get my blog up to date.  Happy Easter and Happy Passover.  Here is the link for the DCWV Blog so you can see the wonderful layouts and cards that were done.

More Cards From My LSS

I have truly been so busy these few weeks that I haven't had much time to post on here.  So my blog is feeling a little neglected.  I need to catch up so over the next week I will try and put up a new post every day and hopefully that gets me up to date.  A little while ago I posted some pics of tags that I made while taking some classes at my LSS.  (Local Scrapbooking Store)  They have such fun and interesting things to do and I can't get enough.  I made the decision to give up selling Close To My Heart as it just never really took for me the way I had hoped.  Maybe this was just not the right time or maybe it just wasn't meant to be.  It will also free up a little bit more money for me to take classes and buy other supplies online and from my LSS.  Here are some more cards that I made during another class.  I think they came out beautifully.  See you back here tomorrow!

My Very First Card....Ever!

I was hunting through an old box of pictures and various other memorabilia waiting to be scrapbooked. (It's a huge Rubbermaid tub so I will be busy for the rest of my days! LOL) Anyway I came across this little, badly folded, slip of paper made into a card. Now I honestly don't remember making it or anything but when I look at it, to me it looks like a baby carriage. This would make sense because at the time that I would've made this, my mother would've been expecting my (I would've been 5 1/2.) So I was able to draw a little, put my name on the front (yes my secret is out; my name is actually Marianna but if anyone calls me that, well there's no telling what I might do. LOL) and obviously I needed help with the greeting inside which my father wrote out. (It says; I like you Mommy) So for any of that that are familiar with my cards, I thought you might like a peak at my very first card ever made.

No fancy papers, die cuts, stickers or other embellishments.  Just paper and crayons folks!  What have you got in your stash that takes you on a trip down 'Memory Lane'?

Top 10 at DCWV in February

I don't know how I forgot to post this but I did. I entered both the card challenge as well as the layout challenge in February with DCWV.  I managed to make Top 10 for both!  Doing the happy dance about that.  I am really enjoying entering these challenges every month and of course the enjoyment grows when I make Top 10. 

As always comments are welcome!
