SEM Birthday Celebration Hop

  Welcome to Broken Treasures :)  I'm so glad to have you here for Scrapping Everyday Miracles Birthday Bash!  We have an exciting hop planned for you this weekend but that is not all!  There will also be lots of tutorials throughout the weekend on the SEM blog from past designers and FIVE fun and easy challenges that you can enter to win some amazing prizes!!!!  The celebration continues on our Facebook Chit Chat Group where we will be offering games each day of the event that will have some fabulous prizes.  
If you are arriving here from Jeannine's blog Creative Chaos you are in the right place!  If you just arrived from the World Wide Web :)  you can circle through or start at Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog so you don't miss out on a single giveaway :) 
I have not been with the SEM design team very long but my favorite page for them so far has been this page from the challenge where we had to pick one word to describe us.  My sisters helped me pick my word :)

I used the Pemberley paper pack from Close To My Heart and the Card Word Puzzle stamp set - it is my favorite one!  
For my celebration projects I made this card 

I thought this was the perfect celebration card because it can be used for so many different things . . . 
birthday, graduation, promotion, new baby, etc.  I love the way the card came together and has a masculine feel to it - I'm thinking of using it as a Father's Day card for my husband.  Celebrate being a great dad! 
I also combined Ali Edwards Summer Manifesto with the Happy Family Summer Bucket List Challenge and decided in our family we are going to celebrate summer!

I'll post more this weekend on our summer list.

Clearly the Best!

My Acrylix® stamps are clearly the best in the stamping industry, giving you incredible creative freedom loaded with possibilities. 

Did you know?

       1.  My Acrylix stamps are ready to use right out of the package—no cutting out, mounting, or applying stickers required. Just place the stamp on your block, apply ink, and you’re set!
2.  My Acrylix stamps and blocks are clear, making it easy to stamp in exactly the right spot.

3.  My Acrylix stamps can be used to create a variety of popular looks, including:
  •  base and shade stamping                      

  • creating your own patterned paper                           
  • sponging on multiple inks for single-impression, multi-color images                               
4.  Many My Acrylix stamps coordinate with Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge shapes, giving you lots of creative possibilities. Cut the shape on your Cricut® machine, stamp the image on the shape, and attach to your project! In the Idea Book, the images outlined in red coordinate with Cricut® shapes.

5.  My Acrylix stamps are super easy to maintain, store, and transport.

Kids say the funniest things!

Do your kids say or do the funniest things?  Mine do.  
They always have me laughing at the things they say and do!  

My son dressed for gardening with an oven mit, flip flop and boot.  He said he wanted to be cold on one side and warm on the other :) 

My daughter, who currently is in speech therapy because she doesn't say very much, is always bringing a smile to our faces with the way she dresses :)  

All three of my kids love to have a good time.  My daughter has started speaking and we are all thrilled.  The other day my oldest said to me, "Mom we need more babies"  When I asked him why he explained that  our girl is talking now so she is no longer a baby and he likes babies.  He said to me, "I want ten more Mom."  I was not sure whether I should laugh or cry at the thought of thirteen children.  
Three have me busy enough!

I need to remember to write down these things more often because they make for great scrapbook pages!  Scrapbooks are for my kids to remember these days (and me too!).  

Jeannette Lynton is having a contest of sorts (with prizes!) for all the funny stories and things your kids say.  Why not head on over and share a story?  You might even win something :)

While you are at it check out the Kids challenge over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles!  My boys, who are not the sit still and make an art project type of kids no matter how hard I try to make them do art projects, want to join in on this fun!  We'll see - Saturday will be our scrapbook day - I'm not sure if I'll have anything to share with you or not after this weekend.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I'd love to hear your stories too so feel free to leave some comments on funny things your kids say or do :)  Let's share the love!
