Proud Momma!

I have to share the wonderful work my daughter, Anna did for her dad for Father's Day. She is 10 years old and does share my love for scrapbooking. She has some of her own materials, but is allowed to use my stamps. I am so proud of what she did all on her own. This is our Family ties - Adult stamp set which she stamped in black ink and then colored with our colored pencils. Daddy, Danny owns his own pest control company so she included his sprayer to make it more personal.

Way to go Anna. Great Job! See you can do it too! Let me show you how!!!

Happy Father's Day!

I am so excited to have finished my first mini album! These albums are only $5.95 in the Close to my Heart Summer Catalog and they are really a lot of fun to put together. I have wanted to do something like this for a while and it is.

I wanted to make something special for my dad and after saving these old pictures from the trash (literally!), I just knew this was it. Daddy had recently scanned all our pics onto the computer to make us all discs, but I told him, I was a scrapper and wanted the real thing!

It is so much fun to look through old photos and experience all the wonderful emotions and memories. Just look at all those old clothing styles! I am really glad they are gone!

Just see how scrap booking can be fun, special and so rewarding when you can make a great project like this mini album. You can too! I would love to show you how. Email me and we can set up a time to do a workshop. This would be perfect for a special moment book for a child or a special occasion.

Posting Again!!!

So sorry that it has been a while since I have posted anything, but we have had some sickness at home and trying very hard to recover. Danny, my wonderful husband, has been fighting bronchitis with a horrible cough for really about 2 months now. But after 3 doctor's visits, much prayer and strife, and lack of sleep, he is doing better! Yeah!

I am so glad for my spiritual relief which is a must, but I am also glad for my creative release in my scrap booking. My son, Matthew, graduated this May - Sum Cum Laude from the University of Alabama with a double major in Education and History. I really wanted to do up a special card for him and since I am an avid War Eagle fan, I wanted to show him that I could get my hands dirty with some good old red and white just for him. This card pattern is one from our Originals card book and I thought it looked more masculine. It is hard to tell, but I did gold emboss on the "g" and black emboss on the lettering. The seal, I cut out from his graduation announcement.

Hope you enjoy and know that there IS more to come!
