Quick Project 2!

Hey Diva's! Just wanted to drop in and show you what I did to my ATG I just bought! 1st off let me say that I picked this gun up @ Michaels when they were having that Huge SALE I was telling you guys about here. It was regularly 34.99 and I bought it for 19.99 how about that!! Ok now about the painting, as most of you know these ATG guns come in Pink and that is all the rave for pink lovers! I am a girly girl but I wasn't Loving the pink gun plus it didn't go with my craft room decor which is Red, Black,White and FABULOUS lol!!
Scotch ATG
Can of Spray Paint (Any color you want)
Blue Painters Tape

My husband is the one who painted it for me. All he did was wrap the clear plastic part in painters tape he used a screwdriver to take the tape rollers off and he sprayed it. After it dried I used some Zebra print Bling that I have had for a couple of months ( I was going to use it to bling my cricuts and cuttlebug) but hadn't used it yet, and VOILA my DIVALICIOUS ATG!! I am TOTALLY in Love w/ it and now I'm ready to paint and bling EVERYTHING lol!!

Thanks for stopping by Diva's and until next time Be Blessed!

Baby Shower

Hey Diva's!! How have you guys been doing, Great I Hope! As I was going through my pictures I realized that I hadn't post the pictures from my cousin's baby shower I gave her so that's what I am here for today! Now I want you guys to forgive my picture taking but I totally FORGOT to take pictures of my stuff once I finished and if you have been followimg me for awhile you know that when I am in "Event Mode" the camera is Totally forgotten about lol! So needless to say please forgive the quality of the pics!!   

One of the games we played (there are another set of bags that spell out BABY), the object is to guess what is in the bag that begins with the coordinating letter (all baby items related) ie: O= Onsie. 
 Couldn't Get a good picture of the Whole Banner :(

So here are a couple of the letters (it spelled out CONGRATS)!
Cupcakes holders and toppers ( I found the cute little Monkey mats in the Impulse aisle @ Joanns)

Gifts for the winners of each game also found these in the Impulse aisle @ Joanns
(the items in the bag not the bag itself lol)

Thank You Favors for all the guests!

Another Game, the Ever most popular: How big is Mommies Belly

I will be entering this Baby Shower into these Challenges:

Diva Birthday Card

 Hey Diva's!! How has your day been, Great I hope!! It's been rainy ALL DAY here, is it just me or did it just seem to get cold overnight? Living in GA for 11yrs really spoiled me I had gotten so used to the weather there that I am truly having Culture shock here and it isn't even officially fall yet (lol). Anyway while just laying around I thought maybe I should go in the craft room and try to make a card, and this is what I came up w/. The card was pretty quick to make the longest part was trying to figure out how I wanted to position each piece. I wanted a simple but Fabulous card and I think I accomplished that. I got inspiration from the colors of my craft room which is red, black, and white (Love Love Love).

Fall Card

Hey Divas! How have you guys been doing? Did anyone make it to Michaels yet for GREAT savings?? Make sure you get there before closing time tonight to get those Awesome Deals!! So this card was made for a couple of Blog challenges and I wanted to share it with you all! When I think of Fall I think of  leaves changing colors, pulling out the jackets and jeans, hay rides, scarecrows and Halloween! I also think of my Fall decor that's in the attic (which the husband will be pulling down this weekend) and my door wreath that needs to be re-done! I love making wreaths especially for the Holidays which inspired this card! To make my wreath I used some real sticks (hence the not so perfect round shape), some hot glue and ribbon.

Football Card!

Hello Diva's! How have you All been doing? I have been busy busy with School just starting Tuesday and getting back into a routine. Today is Crew Member 1's Birthday he is 13 today :( I was so sad when I went in his room this morning to sing Happy Birthday 2 him ( on their birthdays I wake them up and serenade them w/ the Happy Birthday song they just smile and laugh!). Anyhow I didn't have time to get his card made before this morning but I just finished it so he will get it as soon as he gets home! I had a hard time on figuring out what to do because I wanted to tie in his 3 most favorite things (besides me lol) Football ( he has been playing since he was 6yrs old and he is very good @ it), Video games ( what 13yr old doesn't), and Snickers lol! But they all just didn't seem to come together like I wanted! So I seen this sketch design over on Skipping Stones Designs that I really liked so I went with it ( I am beginnig to really LOVE these Sketch Design Challenges)!!

I wanted it to really look like a football field so the numbers on the side represent his birthday 09-08-11 like yard lines.
