Welcome to my mind. I love color, I love textures, and am looking forward to showing you what I come up with!

My projects for this summer include working on my son's 2nd year album and my 2011 family album, so you might be seeing a lot of layouts relating to that! This is one of my favorite photo days that is not only going in my son's 2nd year book, but also is my submission for Jinger's Design Team, so here's crossing fingers!

I hope that if Jinger or someone else from her blog comes over this way that they will stick around and check out some of my others projects, because I have quite a few I am very pleased with!

If you will recall my HSN Banner entry:

My favorite Halloween layout:

And, I don't just do layouts of my kids - this one is of me!:

I do cards too:

And artwork:

Thanks for the consideration!

Letter Envy card

Working on a card this morning I decided to totally use Letter Envy! I was amazed at how well the small details of the letters came out - and this was cut at 2"! Also, in trying to figure out how to glue down a translucent piece of ribbon, I used spray adhesive and it worked flawlessly - I was able to lie the ribbon flat and there are no glue or tape spots. Just wanted to share that little tip!
Hope you enjoy!

Magazine Challenge - Feb Mag

Ok, so I really want to get back into doing my scrapping and am doing whatever I can to motivate myself. I had a hard time with this one since I haven't had my Gypsy and have a limited number of carts at the moment. The first image I loved was from the magazine, page 9:

This is what I came up with, but it was just not coming together like I wanted to and I didn't like the finished product:

So...I scrapped it and started a new one yesterday. =) This was a love of labor for me - literally - since it was from Valentine's Day last year and I pretty much didn't have any of the carts I wanted to use or any embossing folders since they are at my scrapfriend's house and she's OOT. SO....I made do with what I did have! I based if off the sketch from page 34 in the magazine. I did turn the sketch to fit my photos, so hopefully it's not too loosely basing it. I did take some artistic license!
The sketch I based it off of:
And here it is!

I was excited to get out and use Letter Envy for both projects and I used Jubilee for the first time on the heart banners! I like how it turned out! Thanks for looking!
