ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

SSC Monthly Blog Hop

Monthly Blog Hop from Simply Scrapping Crafts

Hello and Welcome to the first SSC Monthly Blog Hop! Our challenge this month was to make something for our current season. Since it is Spring here in California, I decided to create a 2 page layout that reflects Springtime.

Here is my project:

Layout Recipe:

Technique: Dahlia Flower Fold
Paper: DCWV cardstock, K&Company double sided pattern paper, My Minds Eye pattern paper
Cricut cuts: Gypsy Wanderings 2 1/2"phrases, 
2" & 3" circles from Boys will be Boys
Martha Stewart edge punch, Clear Rhinestones 
and Zip Dry glue
