Nottingham, Md, United States
Hi! I am a 39 year old stay at home mom (most of the time). I am a hairstylist that scaled back greatly when I had three babies within a year. The twins are now 5 and the youngest is 4 and I also have a 16 year old. All girls! I love working with vinyl, Jaded Blossom, Stampin' Up!, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, my Cameo and my Copics among other creative things! I enjoy cake decorating, stamping, scrapping, card making and most things crafty! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

Lynne's Mad Hatter 60th Birthday Tea Party Blog Hop

 Welcome to Lynne's Mad Hatter 60th Birthday Tea Party Blog Hop --- don't be late for this very important date and just to be sure you're not late, we're serving tea for not one day but two!! Watch out for rabbit holes, and those drink me and eat me potions as you must do them in moderation. You'll never know what you will see beyond the looking glass --- sew, sit down a spell and enjoy the talented ladies as we hop along in Wonderland. Warning, watch out for the Queen of Hearts as she is losing in the game of croquet and its off with your heads!!!!!

Rather than cake, crumpetts, tarts and cookies, we have blog candy and I mean some sweet treats that are being offered by our great sponsors:

To be eligible by posting you must comment and post on each stop of our tea party along the way --- now remember to hold your pinky out when drinking your tea --- will that be 1 lump or 2?

You should have arrived here from Katie but if you stopped at my blog to just visit today, I don't want you to miss a single thing along the way and you need to start at the beginning which is two hares by the Cheshire cat who is grinning at you and that darn caterpiller smoking her pipe at http://slasewcraftiness.blogspot.com/!!!

 For my project I made an Alice In Wonderland mini album. I haven't put the finishing touches on yet because I'm not sure exactly what I am putting in it. I cut the album from a Cricut file I made on my Gypsy and all the paper is DCWV from the Dazzle Stack. All cuts are from my Cricut Disney Classics cartridge.
 This fabulous digi image is Mad Hatter by Heather Valentin available from Scrapbook Stamp Society  I colored her with Prismacolor Premiere Pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your tea and crumpets and your next stop is not Twiddledee and Twiddledum but Erin

You can start at Lynne's blog and check out day 1 of this awesome two day hop! Happy Birthday Lynne~Hope it was wonderful and thank you for allowing me to celebrate with you!

Hugs, Love, Tea Cups and Crumpets
