Lovely bride

Hi there. What a beautiful day in sunny CA, I am going to make this quick so I can take the dog out for a walk and enjoy this weather. One of my baby cousins is getting married! I have a HUGE family but it’s been a while since we’ve had a wedding. I am so super excited for her and her future hubby, they make a gorgeous couple too. I decided to get a head start on ideas for her bridal shower card, this is one possibility I came up with, what do you think? SHe loves vintage looks and I tried hard to acheive that with the black and while with lace. I’m also entering this card in challenges: Fussy and fancy - Vintage

Marvelous Magnolia – Bling it on

ABC Challenge – L is for Lace

Thanks for looking and as always thanks for your sweet comments ~ Angela

Sugar sugar oh honey honey..

That is the song that was in my head as I created this card topper. I am not sure if I want it on an easel card or to top a goodie box. I picked up one sheet of DSP from Michael’s and the rest is history. The idea that started this card is the cute Faux lollipop charm hanging off the side. Doesn’t it look delicious? My daughter made it for me out of polymer clay. She made a few of them so I requested to buy a batch from her Winking smile 

I would like to enter this creation in some challenges:

Tilda’s Town – Flower’s everywhere

Magnolia-licious – Buttons, bows/ beads. I used buttons

The Shabby Tea room – #161 shabby spring

7 kids – Anything goes

Crafting for all seasons – floral delight

Papertake weekly – Bingo *diagonal Glitter, free, gems

Top Tip Tuesday – use a boy or a girl

Fussy and Fancy – Faux technique (faux lollipop)  

Yummy-licious, here is a close up for the charm, don’t you just want to eat it? My daughter is so talented I’m super proud of her abilities.

Thank you for getting this far, I know I get carried away when I share my crafts but I just love being able to do that with like minded peeps even if it’s over the great big blogosphere. Hugs ~ Angela Marie

Randomness means different things in various fields. Commonly, it means lack of pattern or predictability in events

My title says it all, I like taking random photos like this one I took at the beach. These birds are fearless, always trying to come up and grab peoples snacks. DSCN1948

Here is a random action packed photo I took of my kids, and George.. That curious little monkey always want to tag along!

And here is a rare, plus random snap shot of my kids hugging it out, I’m so grateful god blessed me with two. There’s never a dull moment.

I live in beach community and agriculture area. we have lots of strawberry fields, It’s great to have an ocean breeze when the strawberries have sprouted. But prior to that it reeks of manure. Eww!! At least there is a pay off, and my family enjoys when I make these


One more bit of Randomness, I had to draw a picture free hand for an art appreciation class. A mural under the tortilla flats bridge in Ventura Ca. caught my eye so I gave it a try. Now, in no way am I saying it’s good, but lol I tried. And I am proud of it cause I had a lot of fun drawing it.

One more random pic, opps I said that on the last one huh? I'm getting carried away here, but this will be the last. Most people who know me are shocked to find out that I am a huge UFC fan. I know it can be bloody and too much for many to handle, but hear me out on this.. It’s a well thought out sport. See these well rounded, finely tuned athletes are trained in many areas of boxing, wresting, sparring and jiu jitsu. There is a lot of thought when they are fighting and it never gets boring. Boxing is way too slow for me, I’m an action packed kind of gal. So here I am with Scott Jorgensen at the Las Vegas UFC Expo last year.

There you have it folks, randomness that makes me smile. I try to live in the moment, and since I have many hobbies and many things that make me happy, I thought I’d share some of that with you. Till next time ~ Angela
