Haloween Fright


   I know I have been MIA again. There are just not enough hours in the day. I work every day including Saturday and Sunday(just not always 8 hours on these days) and it is hard to find time to do the things I love. You would think that with Krista away at school it would be easier but that is not the case. Now I have a big boy who is working lots of hours and he does not have much time to chip in. That being said, I am not giving up on my crafting! I just am not going to always be as active.
  I made this fun layout using the Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge Art Booking. I just love the haunted house and the fun title! I really need to get this out more often. Just a heads up, if you are like me and do not have your Cricut linked to your computer, you might want to grab any of the cartridges you want but don,t have. Provo craft is going all digital and soon you will not be able to get the actual cartridge soon. It is on a while supplies last basis right now .http://brendamckerchie.ctmh.com  There is a new travel one that I need to get my hands on before it is to late.
   I also thought I would give you a little update on my chickens. They are all laying on a regular basis right now. We just got the yard fenced in so they have been getting a little time out in the yard. All but Salvadora, who I would never be able to catch to get back in the coop. Someday, Rob is going to put a door at the bottom of the coop so then I will be able to just shoo them back in. Right now I have to catch them and physically lift them back into the coop. Django ( my granddog) is getting a new brother or sister! all the more reason to scrapbook.
   So here is to a New Years resolution early! Finding more time for doing what I love!

Chicken Update

My chickens are getting big and noisy! As soon as I let the dogs out in the morning Rocky starts root rooing at me. Irene comes right over to the door when I open it and they all love treats! No eggs yet. I am hoping in September. Our new neighbor's hove moved in and are putting up a fence for their dog! Win for me. They grew up on a farm and their parents have chicken so they are used to the noise. Win for me!! She even knew the kinds of chickens I have. So far so good. I hope you all are enjoying your summer and here is a video of the chickens at about 14 weeks.

Contraband Card


Hello I am back again. I used some CTMH paper called La Belle Vie for this card. I also used a die by Karen Burniston called Agatha Edges and a contraband die from another company I got off their clearance section. the trim was from my stash and I think it was Maya Road. i am really drawn to pop up and interactive cards and when I saw this die I just had to have it! Thanks for stopping by! Brenda

Biggest Fan!

  I used an Art Impressions stamp for this card. They always crack me up! The paper is from CTMH. I used one of my 6x6 sample papers so I am not sure of the name. The hand is on a wobble so that it will move. I gave this card to Krista this year before a polo game.

Who Wants To Clean Anyway?



   So I am supposed to be getting the camper ready and cleaning the house to go on vacation BUT.....
Who wants to work when everyone else is playing? I have been a little distracted. The fam is going to be unhappy when they get home from fishing and their beach adventure to discover they are going to have work to do!! I have been working everyday and before that we were doing Graduation stuff so I have not gotten to do much crafting. I have been able to buy craft stuff! Ha Shopping online is a great creative outlet when you do not have time to make something! Oh my!
  I used a very old paper pack from Close To My Heart and it was a Level one so it had stickease with it. I am thinking I must have finally used it up because I can not find the paper. I used the stamp that coordinates with the paper. I am planning on giving a chicken update soon and post some graduation pictures. Thanks for stopping by and Scrap Happy!

Chicken Update 9 weeks old

  I am busy getting ready for a graduation party so I have not been doing much crafting. But I decided to make an up date video while I was cleaning the coop. Roxanne is most definitely a Rocky so we will have to see how that goes. Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

Party Prize update and Mothers Day Card


 Hello Everyone. I made this mothers day card using the stamp of the month set called Tea-rrific. I used the CTMH die Happy for the front. I also used a die cut Prisma for the table cloth  in the center of the card for the cup to sit on. To make my Tea cup stand up on the inside I used a die from Elizabeth Crafts called Fence Pop Stand.The paper is from CTMH but I an not sure which one. I order the 6 x 6 sample sets to show my girls the new paper and I used some paper from one of those. The size is perfect when you want to make a quick card and then you do not have to get out an entire paper pack. Every person who orders from my Birthday bash party will get an entire 6xx6 package of the new papers this time. I was not able to make any cute party favors for those who ordered so this is ONE of the things they will get! I am so excited to share the new papers with all of you.

  Here is a picture of one. I am also having a drawing from my blog but since I have not been able to do a lot of blog post due to working so much it will be short. This one is going to be kind of a secret. If you do not follow my blog then you may not find out about it. To get a ticket in the drawing you need to answer the question in the comments below. What is the name of my favorite chicken? Hint she is a Blue Cochin. If you subscribe to my YouTube channel you will also get a ticket for the drawing. the prize is the stamp set below. Good luck and I can not wait to see you Saturday!
