Just a lil' Share

Since, Johnny had a date with the girls on Friday I decided my date with them would be on Saturday :)
after some girl shopping and a quick stop at Michael's for some crafty goodness;  we ended up swinging by the Christian Book Store. My girls love going in there and just picking up either the latest Christian music or a few books hat catch their eye. Jeanelle picked up several books, one of them which was God's Girl and Nataleigh picked up a few of her own. Some devotionals for girls as well as a knock knock joke one lol.... she's toooo cute and had us laughing all the way home!!!! I purchased some up for my hubby as well  A Father's Almanac Devotional book and another one which I know he would be blessed to read!!!! Last but not least I had been wanting to pick up a copy of Bringing Up Girls a book by Dr. James Dobson from Focus On The Family. I had been wanting to get my hands on a copy for a few months and until yesterday I was blessed to have found it! Finally, I have the so waited book in my hands and have just left of on half of chapter 4. I am so blessed to own a copy of this magnificent and well written book I am impressed to want to read it after listening to a talk show on it and of coarse I have two gorgeous girls and what best than to read it and get advise from this great man of God.  Especially in this society where girls are in such a struggle and in a hurry to want to grow up so fast!!!! Will definitely let you know what I thought about it later on so far so good and all I can say is thank you Lord for our beautiful Girls that we are bringing up.
Hugs Everyone Alee'

Linda's Blog Hop

Hi there everyone :) it's finally here Linda's Spring Blog Hop and I
am so excited to be a part of it :) Thanks so much Linda for inviting me
to join in my first ever Blog Hop participation :) If you are here from
Vero's  http://goldenmomentssometimes.blogspot.com 
You are in the right Place and thanks for hopping with us.

As soon as Linda asked me to participate in this fab hop I started brain
storming on what I wanted to do I was so happy she had invited me to
participate and was extremely nervous ..... Instantly I knew what I wanted
to do. Wanting to do a wall hanging at first I figured I would do
a Canvas, but just a week ago I changed my mind and decided to do a
Embroidery Hoop Layout I had been wanting to try one for a while now.
Ok here it is hope you like it my dear friends :)


The hoop was purchased at Michael's for $1.45 the size is 12", the polka doted fabric I purchased from Hancock Fabrics from the pre-cut quilting squares on sale for $0.99. The fabric I loved it reminded me of Easter eggs and jelly beans just perfect for this blog hop. The chick and rabbit came from last year's dollar bin from Michael's, but had been saving them because I purchased them after Easter for $0.10. Using some of the lace and ribbon ruffle I had in my stash was fab as well as using some of the left over fabric from a previous project I made the yellow flower and mint green one the other two twisted flowers were a gift from Jo that came with some of the flowers I had ordered from her. The added  button was  also from my stash. The crochet doillie came from an Etsy shop as well as the white silk flower which came from my  ETSY shop @ www.jentaleigh.etsy.com . I have used a spring  sticker that came from Hobby Lobby which came in an Easter Collection and I got on sale for $0.85. The making memories plaque came from Michael's which I found a pack of 12 from $1.49 wow this project was a less than $5.00 can you believe it?  I will definitely continue making more of these it was such a fun project to create and very inexpensive. Thank you Linda for letting me share this project in your hop and I have enjoyed creating it so much.
Now for the give away..... This is what you have to do be a follower to my blog and tell me the most inexpensive Easter or Spring project you have made or plan to make. It will be fun knowing what you thought of my project as well. The winner will be announced on Monday the 14th of this month. I will read all comments together with my girls and hubby and we will choose the winner through random.org. Now here's the picture of the prize.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for hopping with us. Once again thank you Linda @ http.//scrapchica.blogspot.com this has been so much fun. Now on to Nataleigh's blog @ http://nataleighscraftland.blogspot.com

4x4 Mini Lace and Pearls Page

video
Hope everyone is having a blessed week so far. Just wanting to share with you a mini page I created for Karlas001 mini page swap themed lace and pearls. Hoping you will like it as much as I have liked putting it together. This was a bit challenging for me because I made it a point that I wouldn't use any of the craft flowers I sell on my ETSY shop www.jentaleigh.etsy.com because since I have them handy I do tend to use them a little too much in all my projects.  They are beautiful, but I decided I needed to take myself up to the challenge lol.... The paper I used for this page was the K & Co. Julianne paper line which I used the 6x6 sheets because the print of the flowers is much smaller. I used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch as well as pearls, bling and pearlized button. On some of the solids I ran them through my cuddle bug to give them some dimension and I also incorporated some burlap, cotton fabric for the cover. Sheer fabric was used for the making of my small yoyo flowers. Hope you like this page wishing you a blessed rest of the week.

Many Hugs
Alee'
