They've inspired me, that's for sure!

*CSI & Noel Mignon*

hi friends! today's post is kinda long - so sit back, relax & I hope you enjoy!

This month Noel Mignon is teaming up with CSI (Color Stories Inspiration)
(and giving away a prize!) for the month.  The Noel Mignon DT is playing along
for a couple of the case files! Our first file was up and we had fun "solving" the case!
It was such a joy to be a guest detective.

First I'll show you my layout:
here's the case file:

You can read all about the case, see the other GORGEOUS creations
from the other NM girls and solve it too!
Here's the blog post:  CSI Color Stories Inspiration
here's a few close ups of my layout:

I love how it turned out!  That was alot of fun. Stay tuned
because we get to choose another case to solve & I can't wait to show you!
Since it's Monday - I'm also sharing my Monday post from Noel Mignon

*Merry Lily Bee Tree*

hi friends!

i've had a few more inquiries about the scrapbook goody boxes I have for sale
& just wanted to update that I do have some left - I actually made a few more
yesterday & have 12 total. If you're interested, let me know!
feel free to email me:  leslieashe(at)gmail(dot)com.

It's that time of  year! Trimming the tree, putting out decorations,
lights, wrapping gifts, going caroling, parties, etc!
I love Christmas.
This year we got a bit behind in decorating but it's all up now!
The tree was trimmed last night & all decorations are now out for
everyone to see and enjoy.

Today I want to share a tree I made for the Lily Bee blog this week
for Holiday Inspiration Week:
A couple of months ago, while perusing through one of our favorite antique stores,
I found treasure! I mean - I found this 12" tall chipboard, vintage Bingo card.
I HAD to have it. I knew I was going to use it for something & put it aside until
the perfect idea came to my mind.

I then thought...a TREE! A Christmas tree - and's
my tree, on my vintage bingo card, decorating my house right now.
I love how it turned out!

Here's some up close shots:

Go to the Lily Bee blog to see the entire post & see
Lisa Dickinson's & Summer Fullerton's gorgeous projects!
Don't forget - I still have a few boxes left! (
Cost:  $40 - which includes Flat Rate Priority shipping.
have a great day!

*Monday 2 For 1 with Noel Mignon*

that's what I titled my blog post over at the Noel Mignon blog today. :P
cheese, meet Leslie. ha!

hi friends - hope you've had a great weekend.

I've been busy getting Christmas decorations down and put up - still going!
A little late this year... but the Christmas Spirit
is there & all the falalala'ing is present....ha!

But you didn't come here to hear all that, I know.
The reason I've got a "2 for 1" is I missed my Monday post last
week at the NM blog - so today I decided to make up for it by posting
2 projects I made with the December "Glad Tidings" kit:

*Box UPDATE + American Crafts Creations*

Good Friday morning!

The weekend is here, thank goodness~!

Just wanted to quickly update - I've sold several boxes
but the good news is....
I've still got some boxes left if you're interested!
(just email me:  leslieashe(at)gmail(dot)com for info!)
See the post below... there's still TONS of goodies!

I love filling those boxes. I feel like Santa's elf! :D

Next I want to share some things I've done for American Crafts recently:

These first 2 are projects I did for the AC blog:

Santa Baby:
I can't even BELIEVE that's Presley from just last year! She has grown so much!
Here she was 11 months - to turn 1 at the end of January!
Now...she's 23 months - turning 2 at the end of January!

here's another -
My Good Side:
My kiddo's last Christmas by our tree!
and a few more I did....


I love my boys!
I also love this Amy Tan paper from the Ready Set Go collection.
It was fun using older washi from her first line to frame my guys out.


I put my Silhouette Cameo to work for this one! Using a combo
of the new XO and Soho Garden - this layout of my feet standing on the
Pops rug in OK - really came together fast!

My happy world - these 2! I love them!
That's all I've got for today!
I'm busy packing more boxes & preparing for CHA projects so I'll be back SOON!
