Hi everyone,
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while I have been extremely busy.  I had to complete 3 more beach wedding albums for the bride.  She wanted them to give to the parents and her sister as gifts.  I have also been getting ready for my surgery.  Tomorrow I go in for gastric bypass surgery.  I'm so excited but nervous too.  I'll be in the hospital for a few days so I won't be writing.  Can't wait to finish the book bag album (kathy orta) that I am working on.  It is soooo cute.

Ultimate Paper Bag Mini Album Part 2

Here are the rest of those photos.  Hope you enjoy. 

Ultimate Paper Bag Mini Album

Good Morning,
As promised I completed the twins albums using Kathy Orta's Ultimate Paper Bag Mini Album design.  It came out great.  I love the pattern.  It was tedious but sooooo simple and it it looks awesom.  I love her work you should check out her site at paper phenomenon if you haven't already.

Damn the landscaper!!!

Good morning all.  That's right it is too early in the morning on a Saturday for me to be awake.  The landscaper has been at it since 7:30am so there goes my sleeping late idea.  I can't even work on my projects right now because I ran out of adhesive and the stores don't open for a few hours.  It's been great this week because I have a new craft room.  My husband moved me out of the small spare room where I have no work space and even less storage space to the basement.  We made custom shelves and now I have an awesome, organized, and spacious work space.  I'll have to take some pictures to show everyone.  Well anyway, I wanted to post some of my other work for you to see.  One is another wedding album (too many weddings this summer) and the other is a baby boy album I made a few months ago.  I have a lot in the works and I can't wait to share with everyone my latest projects.  I'm working on two albums for twin girls that turned 18.  I love the way they are turning out.  I'm using the ultimate paper bag album design by Kathy Orta with the Dress it up paper stack by DCWV.   Love it!!!  Any way I should be done with those in a few days.  In the mean time enjoy these designs and have a great holiday weekend.  I know I will be enjoying my days off. 

This first album is made with DCWV Mariposa paper along with a few random sheets.  I finally got to use my Tim Holtz bird cage.  Who doesn't love Tim Holtz!!!

This album was made with my cricut.  I love the way it came out.  The little clouds are the cutest.

Well thanks for stopping by.  I'm off to count the hours till I can go to the store so I can come home and craft some more.

Happy September

Good morning everyone, I decided since it was a beautiful day and it is the first day in Septermber that it would be a wonderful day to write my first post.  I'm just getting used to all this modern communication and blogging and I know I have seen many of your wonderful sites out there.  It's been a great inspiration to me in my crafting and my life, reading your blogs and seeing your work, so I thought that I would try to pass that on to others as well.  My hope is that my work and my story may be an inspiration to others as others have been to me.  That being said I would like to share one of my most recent projects with you.  I was asked to make several wedding mini albums with a beach theme.  This was a challenge of course to incorporate the formalness of wedding with the theme of the beach.  After a while this is what I came up with and both brides loved them.  Sorry about the picture quality I only had my phone camera with me.  I hope you enjoy it too.
