What time of year is it?

No need to adjust your calendars it is December - the LAST day of December but my layout is of 4th of July - what can I say I scrap what needs scrappin! And submissions are actually calling for 4th of July stuff - that's how far in advance they are planning the mags and such!

This layout is of my oldest son Kaden on the first 4th of July he could really be a part of! He was born July 1st and we came home July 3rd so his first 4th was pretty low key! Lots of fun stuff going on with this layout! Some stamping too! The layered fun embellishment with the star is stamped using a CTMH set as is the date stamp! It was stamp of the month back in MAY and I love it!!!! What a cool little custom date embellishment I was able to make! And then the journaling is on Unity's big long journaling block which I just stamped right on the paper! Ilove that thing!!!! I inked up the edes of the patterned paper and added some punched out stars for details! Here is a close up of the title.
I used some old red Making Memories alpha stickers and added details to them by dotting all around the edges and adding some brackets from the same paper pack as my patterned paper. It is Carolee's Adornit set that I won back this summer! TFL! I have more scrappy goodness coming your way soon - who knows what holiday it will be!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
