Welcome to the All Racing Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the start of the 2013 Nascar Season. I love racing in any form and I found some wonderful crafty ladies who share that love with me. We have all created a project having something to do with any form of racing.

Our wonderful sponsor for this hop is, Nikki over at

She has graciously offered a $25.00 gift certificate to her store. To be eligible to win this you must leave a comment on all the blog posts.

My project today I made a 
Canvass wall hanging of Kasey Kahne using pictures I got off Yahoo images.

I painted the canvass black and then covered it with checkered patterned paper

I wrapped red gross-gain ribbon around the sides using hot glue.

I matted the photos on red photo mats then adhered them to the canvass.

I off set the photos to give it some interest and to fit the pictures best.

I painted the back of 3 Glass accents or bobbles with red glitter nail polish.

I adhered the glass accents with Hot Glue and that finished off the canvass.

Thanks for racing by make sure you speed over to Ashley's Blog.

Check Out my Wheels 8.5x11" lay out

This is a lay out I did of myself, I was probably 3 or 4 in this picture. 

I started with an 8.5x11" white piece of Card stock. the pink mat layer is 8.25x10.75". I cut the center out so I could use it for other things. 

 I used DCWV Nana's kid pattern paper cut at 8x10.5" layered on top of the pink layer.

I used the pink from the inside of the mat layer to make the photo mat and the border punched and adhered behind the border piece from the DCWV stack.

I adhered the photo with Foam tape over the boarder.

I used the Cuttin Up Cricut Cartridge to cut my title out of White card stock. I ran the letters through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. And added them to my lay out.

To finish off the lay out I used the Martha Stewart 3 butterfly punch to punch butterflies out of purple card stock and placed them randomly over the lay out.

Let It Snow Blog Hop

Welcome to the Let It Snow Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Sarah's Blog. If you just happened along then hop back to our Hostess the amazing Sharon's Blog

For my project today I made a scrapbook lay out for my Nephew's scrapbook. All the paper I used in this project came from the Recollections Starry Night paper pad. 

The white paper is where my Pictures are going to go. This is my background paper.

The Journaling card is a printable I found online.

The design on the journaling card didn't match my theme so I took the border sheet from the paper pad and cut 2 of the border designs and layered them. I used the Martha Stewart snowflake punch and put that over the border pieces.

The photos I'm going to put on this are from my nephew's first time seeing snow as a baby. I used stickers I had in my stash.

I used more of the border pieces to form a space for some embellishment clusters, along with more of the punched snowflakes. I added some Recollections flat back bling to the snowflakes to give them a little sparkle.

This is just a close up of one of the clusters

I used my EK Success snowflake border punch to punch a bunch of tiny snowflakes and I put them all over the page to look like falling snow.
