The Creating Blog Hope Cafe' Fur-Babies

Welcome to this month's blog hop with...
The Creating Blog Hops Cafe'

Love is in the air this month, so we wanted to show a little love to a our Fur-Babies.

Here we are in our second month on the last Saturday of the month to inspire you with some wonderful projects. This month's theme is..."Pet's"
So, grab yourself a Latte' and hop along with us while we proudly show off our projects and our Fur-Babies.

Your first stop on the hop will be with...

Robin Lane from Create-A-Latte
My project for the hop is something that I have been trying to make since April but it was a hard one to do.  It will be a year on the 1st of March we had to have our kitty put to sleep.  He was just so special to us all.  His name was Chewbacca Solo but we called him Chewie.  My husband and kids are crazy for Star Wars!  When I would scrapbook he would always sit on my lap or desk and help me out.  I found this wooden box awhile ago at the Good Will and paint it and thought it would be great to put pictures of Chewie and hang it in my craft room. 
The vet's office sent us a card the week after he passed away and inside was his paw prints.  So I just made a copy of them for his shadow box. 

Now, for some candy. This month we will be giving one lucky person two Becky Higgins Project Life Themed Kits, one is the Dogs Kit and the other one is the Cats Kit. For your chance to win this amazing blog candy you must hop through each one of our talented crafters blogs, be sure to leave everyone a little blog lovin', and if you are not already a follower please become one to each of ladies so that you do not miss a single project that they make.

Your next stop will be with Sharon

If you get lost along the way here is the entire line-up of today's hop for you to get back on track and not miss a single project. And don't forget to leave everyone a little blog lovin' and become a follower for your chance to win some blog candy.

Crafty Moms 2/16/14

It's Angela this week with some inspiration for you all!
Hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day and weekend!
I made donuts for breakfast on Friday and then heart shaped Calzone for dinner and bread sticks. Faith helped me make a heart shaped chocolate chip cookie for dessert. Then we just have been having a lazy weekend. It's been rainy and windy here the last few days.
My inspiration for this week was the little Valentine goodies I made for my son's class on Thursday. They didn't get to have a party but was able to exchange cards. So we made little tags on the Silhouette and stamped them to put on pencils.
I used MFP Calendar Stamp Set and MFP Love Love Love Stamp Set to create this cute little pencil tags.
ave a great week and be sure to stop back by next week to see what AJ has to share!

Happy Groundhog's Day
Super Bowl Sunday!
It's Angela this week with some inspiration for you all!!
AJ and I are back with the Crafty Moms column. January was just a crazy month for the both of us so we took some time off with to spend with our families.
I'm excited to share with you my creations for this week. I made cupcakes for my hubby to take to work on Friday for Blue Friday! I thought it would be a cute for the guys to have football toppers for the cupcakes. I was excited to make them for him even though football is not my thing at all. While he is watching and screaming at the TV today I will be crafting away but hoping the Seahawks win cause if not I will have 2 unhappy guys at my house and lots of friends too.
Here are my Seahawk cupcakes!!
I used the MFP Tailgate Party Set to create my toppers. I just attached them to a toothpick with some craft glue. Very simple little project that the guys like for dessert on Friday.
Have a great week and be sure to stop back by next week to see what AJ has to share!
