Scrapping For Charity

I have done this pretty little layout to donate to the Bunny Rescue of Nashville. This features the Paradise collection from Little Yellow Bicycle. The layout is based on a Paradise Page by Debbie found on the Artful Delight Blog. I added a pearl sun in the upper left hand corner by My Minds Eye - Miss Caroline collection. There are clouds in the upper right hand corner that are a bit washed out. The layout is dimensional, not really showing up in the photo. The layout will be framed. I will include mounting adhesive. I have set the minimum bid at $20 which will cover materials and shipping. I really like it. How about you?

Of course, what is a big yearly event without photos? I have some fun photos to scrap.

Been SUPER busy this week. My wonderful Husband and I celebrated our 9th Wedding Anniversary. I got some wonderful, new toys this week, including: New Stampin'Up stamps, 2 Lucky 8 punches, MME Miss Caroline and LYB's Paradise. Can't wait to play with it.

Have you seen the Lucky 8 punches? You can see a demonstration video here:

It is so cool! My Hubby had to play with it too. The scrapbooking and card making potential is endless. I have the Retro and the Floral (I think). The punch is large and heavy, but it does different punch combinations. They also stack and are marked on the side so you can see the shape. At first, it was pretty hard to use, but after my husband played with it a bit, it loosened up a bit. Standing up makes it easier to use. I had to do something with it, I made the total cut out, then trimmed off a side to use for a simple card. Add a stamp, some bling and voila! I really like the punches and am looking forward to some great projects. Hope your sweetheart and you had fun on Valentines day.

Beautiful Jewelry

I have a lovely and talented friend in Fort Myers, Florida. Lori Johnson is a great cook, a talented crafter, has a great eye for decorating and made two of the most beautiful daughters I have ever seen. She is a very talented lady indeed. Currently she is preparing for an Arts and Crafts Fair in Fort Myers. Without further delay... Enjoy.

Brave Girls Club

I get a wonderful message in my inbox that I look forward to frequently. It is called,"A Little Bird Told Me". The messages are so supportive and inspirational. I highly recommend it.

We've Come A Long Way Baby...

I started scrapbooking about 11 years ago, I think... Anyway, when I look at my early scrapbook pages, I nearly roll in the floor with hysterical laughter. Then I went with the Creative Memories way for awhile. Now, I have some beautiful pages that I am quite proud of. I have completed over 60 Scrapbooks. Near as I can calculate, they have cost me about well over $300 an album to complete (if you tally up all the supplies that I own, have owned, or have on order). Here's to hoping my darling Hubby never reads this...
