Smile :)

Hi everyone :)

My mom would have been 73 this past Monday (the 27th), and it is our first birthday without her.  So I wanted to make something for my Dad to commemorate the day for him. 

I made him a mini-album with photos of my Mom and family members through the years. (PS - he loved it!) :) I wanted to add tag to the front of the package for him, and I used the latest challenge from Tag, You're It as inspiration :)


I had some old Kraft mason jars that I cut a slit in the top to slide in the older Prima flower stems into them - so it would appear that the mason jars were vases for the flowers :)


The alphas are from Bo Bunny, the doily from Doodlebug Designs and the little red/pink hearts are from Julie Nutting/Prima :)  







Here is their inspiration for the challenge :)

Friends are the Family We Choose -- Die Cuttin' Divas :)

Hi everyone! :)

Our latest challenge is live over at Die Cuttin' Divas, and this time our challenge is a tic-tac-toe grid :)

I chose three colors, twine and fave technique :)

One of my fave techniques in scrapbooking is repeating an image -- usually a photo duplicate that I have -- but sometimes it is a embellishment that I have a duplicate of, and I will repeatedly use it on a page.

My friend Jean loaned me this Mickey Mouse die, so I made him using his three primary colors on my card :)

I used Simple Stories papers on here :)





Here is our tic-tac-toe grid :)

Happy Mother's Day! :)

Hi everyone! :)

I wanted to share a tag I made for my Mother-in-law's gift for Mother's Day :)

My Mother-in-law loves hummingbird's and when I saw a Bo Bunny chipboard set at my LSS Scraps Of Love, I knew it would be perfect for this tag :)

I chose the colors in this based on the latest challenge at Tag, You're It :)




My Mother-in-law also loves books, so the tag was attached to her Barnes & Noble gift card :)






Here is their challenge this time. :)

Thank you -- Die Cuttin' Divas :)

Hi everyone! :)

Our latest challenge is live over at Die Cuttin' Divas and this time, it is a sketch challenge :)


I made something for 6 of Brookie's Club Volleyball team, and I wanted some thank you cards to go with them :)

Brookie is 12, and was chosen to play for a 16 year old Club Volleyball team, so she was the youngest on the team that consisted of other 12-16 year old girls. This was a HARD season for all of them, as the coach and director of the team were not always good to the girls.  I won't go into details here, but it was a horrible season for the 6 girls that these cards are going to, so I wanted to make them something to remember the friendships they DID gain on this team, and to thank them for being a good friend to Brookie. 


I made these with papers from Simple Stories :)







And here is our sketch :)
