Duct tape anyone? FCCB #25

This weeks challenge #25, over at Fantabulous Cricut is –Road Trip Theme: Create a card or project incorporating a vacation or travel. Please pop over and join our challenge. We went to my family reunion, and spent a couple nights camping. On the way home, we heard a noise, it sounded like the door was being ripped off the motor home. IT WAS! We looked out the side mirror to see our fiberglass bouncing down the freeway. We stopped and grabbed the door panel. A nice Samaritan stopped to help, but all they had was some red tape. That held until we got to the "Country Junction" where we bought some duct tape. They sell the smallest rolls of duct tape I have ever seen. So we wrapped up that door with our shinny duct tape, and began our decent home. By the time we got home, we felt pretty red neck. As we pull in our driveway, with our duct tape door- we see the neighbors carrying their motorcycle in to their front room--yep confirmed we are rednecks! Anybody who knows me though, knows I am ok that.
I used some torn paper to hold the pictures on the LO, so it would look a little like duct tape.
I cut out some little circles, and stamped on the smallest faces from Peachy Keen stamps . The cartridge I used was George and Basics for the circles, and Summer Vacation for the phrase and motorhome. The little faces poking out of the window make me laugh. I can imagine that is what we looked like as we watched our door go bouncing down the highway. These are just some pictures from the reunion. My family had a great time on the water slide. Thanks for dropping by today-have a great day.

I have probably mentioned before that Dru's family gets together once a month to celebrate all the bday that month. This is a card that I made for one of his brothers. He runs the river in AZ and rides his bike back and forth to Utah to visit. So when I saw this single stamp from Stampin' Up! I had to get it. I figure I will get plenty of use, all of 5 brothers ride bikes. :)

Jada's Cameo Cake

Jada's Cameo Cake My nephew came over a couple weeks ago, and brought this cameo jewelry box. He asked if we could make a cameo cake similar to this. Doubting my abilities, but to cocky to admit it. I accepted the challenge.

I had a little something, something in-visioned. So---Amber and I pulled out the cricut cake.....
This is the top layer- I sculpted to make it look as cameo-ish as possible. Made some roses in an ivory color to match the tree and the man and woman.
Well, he came to pick it up, and was thrilled with the outcome of it.
So was Jada, his now fiance'. I would like to think it their getting engaged had something to do with the cake.haha She froze the top-and they just ate the bottom. Yummy nummy carrot cake. now my shameless plug... If you would like to buy a cake like this or any of other items please visit our webstore. LadyBird Designs. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Go Green

This is for the Stampin' Up! workshop I did over this last weekend. I wanted to do some embossing. So I did two projects. The first one is recycling some old paper, maybe a calendar, book, picture of some sort. Into a new project. Here is the one we did.
It is for a 6x6 scrapbook. Could also be expanded into a 12x12 or other size. The idea is fun.
Close up of the iridescent ice on the flowers. I love all that sparkles. Here is tutorial I prepared.

Thank you for spending some time with me today. I greatly appreciate it. Hope to see you again soon.

Peacock Dreams

We were practicing our cala lily skills. We had a lot of fun. And the client was very happy with her cake. YAY!!!!
