A Wedding Gift ;)

We have a wedding to go to july 10, 2010 - for a couple from church. Their colors are Pink, Black, & Silver. Her fave color is Pink. I thiught what better gift to give them than a My Word album made with my new fave Bo Bunny line - Petal Pushers. These papers/stickers/embellies are SOOOOO cute I could hardly contain myself!!! It says "(It's) Our Day" (Sal says it's hard to read...blah). I'm starting to think I'm in a little rut?!? I've been so into flower making and my lil Martha Stewart Butterfly punch that the past few albums have included much of both. But.... I still like them. I like how they came out so there (Sal). Enjoy ;) and have a blessed day.

My Grandma

I've been enjoying my Grandma this past week and a half ;). It was really nice how my kids warmed right up to her. They can't wait to see her every day & all I hear is GG (for Great Grandma) this and GG that. It makes me really happy :D. Thought I'd post some pics of her visit!! It was really nice to get a few 4 generational pictures and just have a great time with her.

For my Grandma

This is a My Word albim I made for my grandma with Fancy Pants Designs' Antique Roadshow line (I'm falling deeply in love with this line!!). I was a little stressed with this little guy because she told me Saturday that she wanted one before she leaves (this Thursday night). I loved the Tea Pot that I made a few weeks ago with the same paper, so I went with that theme (you know antiquey). I made all of the flowers in the book except the 1st, which was Prima. I'm really happy with it & cant wait to give it to my Grandma. I love her so much and will miss her terribly when she goes.

Another day, another super cute mini!!

I made this last weekend (just now getting to posting)I bought the mini from Michael's for $1.00 - yep, $1.00. At the time I had no specific plans for it, but got inspired by the Fancy Pants Antique Roadshow!! Almost everything (paper & embellies) are from that line, with the exception of a few pins (maya Road & Making Memories) and the October Afternoon "mini market" letter stickers (I LOOOOOVE THESE!!!). I also used my Martha Stewart betterfly punches. I love how this turned out sooooo much!! It's one of my faves so far. It went to my grandma who is visiting from NY.

Mini Sunday :)

So on Sunday (this is after I taught Sunday School, helped our youth program wash cars for 3 hours for a fund raiser, and gave my family bunches of quality time) I made this lil cutie!! I really like this line of paper/flair from American Crafts and have used it to make baby Shower invites for a special friend and then also used it to make her a mini album when her baby was born. I made this to sell at a little craft sale we're having at church this coming Friday. It took me about 2 and a half hours, and I have to say, I love it so much I almost dont want to part with it, but I'm hoping someone falls in love with it & takes it off my hands.

Fun with "Friends"

Well I've been busy busy around here! I (finally) made my niece, Kristen, the "friends" mini she bought from Paper Niche when she was here (from NY) in April. I used the new Bo Bunny Peacock Lane papers/buttons/letter stickers. I love this line, and my niece is all about purple, which made it a natural pick!! I really like how it turned out! My new butterfly punch from Martha Stewart came in mighty handy as well - live that lil guy! Also, I must say, I'm having a BLAST making my own flowers these days!! Enjoy!
