Happy 40th Anniversary Mama & Papa Lovebug!!!!


July 31, 1971 was a very special day! My parents got married and 40 years, 4 children and 6 (and a half!) grandchildren later they are still together! I am very blessed to have the most wonderful parents and wanted to put together a lil surprise for them (ok...mostly for Mama cause she's crafty and will be the one to really appreciate this!) It was very difficult to keep this under wraps...Mama is one of the most difficult people to surprise but I think she'll be shocked to wake up to this! At least that's what we're hoping for!! :)

I asked my favorite bloggy besties Zeni and Tanya to help by making something special to celebrate my parents big day!!! And boy did they ever! Both made the cutest projects and I can't thank them enough for it! These two ladies are the best friends anyone could ask for!!! So on to the projects....

First up is the fabulous Miss Zeni-!! She created this beautiful shadow box!! Stellar!!! Truly lovely! Thanks again Zeni!!!! :)

Happy Anniversary Mama Lovebug!!! For this special event, I have made a shadowbox for Mama Lovebug to put a picture of her choice of her and Papa Lovebug. Mama Lovebug... I hope you are super surprised and that you and Papa Lovebug have a beautiful day. May God bless you with many many more years of happiness. I love you!!!!

Next up is the totally crafty Tanya-!!! This album is just to die for! I love it! She always gives herself a hard time but when it comes down to it makes the most gorgeous things ever!!! LOVE IT! :)

I want to wish both Mama and Papa Lovebug a wonderful 40th anniversary with many more years to come! Hope you were surprised and enjoy the album I've made for you!
Big Hugs,

 And last but not least is my project! My first explosion box and I made it with my childhood home in mind! I hope you enjoy it Mom! I still need to add pictures to it but will get it you asap! ;) LOVE YOU!!!!!  Warning on the video...I had no help filming so it's a little shaky! LOL....

I hope you all enjoy these projects! Lots of Love went into the making of them! :)
Also I would like to wish my sister Missy and her hubby Jon a wonderful 5 year Anniversary today as well!!! Love you guys!!!! :)

Don't forget to leave Mama some love in the comments section!! It'll really make her day! :)

Little Leah & Little Madison!

Hi Lovebug followers! It's been a bit since I've crafted but when I saw the stories of Little Leah and Little Madison I couldnt help but get all my goodies out! Both beautiful little girls are in the fight of their lives right now...and at 4 and 20 months old thats saying a lot. Two very wonderful friends asked that others make cards to send to the little ones and their families and I think its a wonderful idea! You  can find info RIGHT HERE on where to send some cards if you would be willing to!

I made the same card for each of the girls! I hope that it may inspire some of you to make one for them as well!

What I used:
Hibiscus Burst PTI Cardstock (Thanks Tanya!)
Pattern paper is from a pack I got at WalMart a while ago and can't remember the name!
Pink Bling
Cuddle Anya Greeting Farm Digi on a wobble for added fun! (Thanks for the wobble Tanya)
The sentiment is computer generated and says "Get Well BEARY Soon"

Thanks for stopping by!
