With a Cherry on Top..

Summer is here- yeah! So I just had to use this stamp on SOMETHING!

I thought this sentament was pretty clever, and it was perfect for an upcoming "get well" card swap!

I really wanted the cherry on top to stand out... a rhinestone was the perfect solution. However unfortunatly I didn't have a red rhinestone. Then I had an idea!

Any permanant marker would work. Make sure to give it a few layers of color, and let it dry for a few minutes.

Just think of the possibilities, an rainbow of rhinestone colors!

Hybird Scrapping

This is my first attempt at a hybird album (part digi part traditional scrapbooking). I downlaoded the album kit from The kit is called Simply Lime by Meridith Cardall. After creating the digi album with pictures from my Sisters recent wedding, I had the 4x6 pages printed at Costco. I cut them out added some fun embellishments, and tied them all together.
The best part about creating a digi album is not only was I able make the album for my sisters birthday, but was able to make easy and quick coppies for other family members!

Here is the album completed

Digital title page

Title page with paper flowers and button accents

Digi pages 1-4

Real buttons added to the final album pages.

Digi pages 9-12

Decorative button embelishment added. (I love this page!)

Digi pages 13-16

Pearls and paper flowers added

Digi pages 17-20

There's no Place Like HOPE

Last weekend I was honored to attend the RELAY FOR LIFE event held in the Magic Valley. I went to help my Mom with her booth (St. Lukes Women's Imaging). Relay For Life is an annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Socity. This year their theme was There's No Place Like HOPE. So of course many of the participants ran with the Wizzard of Oz theme, my mom's group included.

Here is Abby dressed up as Dorthy in front of the amazing mural they had painted to do pictures with.

This is a luminary I made in honor of my friend Rose who is currently batteling cancer.

This is my Mom, she made such a cute Scarecrow!

Me and my morning coffee!
