Sitting Pretty

Here's a layout I completed using Basic Grey "Porcelain" Collection. I thought that this paper was funky enough for the 70's. This is a picture of my mom in 1973, I wasn't born can tell she still has a smile on her face, lol! If she only knew what was to come...just kidding, I'm a good girl. The photo is a little fuzzy, I scanned the original and printed it out. I love to create my own embellishments and I did that using the scraps I had leftover to make my flowers. I used my QK Silhouette to cut that vine design.

Can anyone say enabler?

I've been called an enabler from many friends and family members and I would like to live up to it. As I was blog hopping this morning (my daily wake up routine), Amy @Tsuruta Designs posted a link to this great place for scrap goodies. Thanks Amy! If you like Peachy Cheap then you will LOVE Crop Chocolate! Same as Peachy Cheap they list one great item everyday for purchasing. Just another link to subscribe to or add to your Google Reader, lol! Okay I've done my enabling deed for the day, happy shopping!

Private Class

Last night I taught a private class at my LSS and I am beat. Jessica, who was the birthday girl, really liked my paper bag class and wanted me to create one especially for her and her friends. It was a class size of ten and let me tell you it was a challenge for me, as far as prepping. I double checked and triple checked all my kits to make sure that all the embellishments were accounted for. All in all I had a blast. Here are a few pics.

This was the paper bag album and the kits that I put together. It looks all neat but my scrap desk begs to differ.

I made some treat bags for the girls and I used my QK Silhouette and cut out these cute little french fry boxes. Each little goody had the girls' initials on the tag.

I made the birthday girl her own little goody basket (I knew there would come a time that all my hoarding of my scrap stuff would come to good use, lol). I got this cute green blinged out tiara at Target for a dollar, awesome deal. I also made her this birdie magnet, with all the trimmings of bling. And last but not least I couldn't forget a birthday card. I again used my Silhouette (Love it!) to make this cute cake card for her. The paper I used was DCWV "The Glitter Sweet Stack". Phewwww! Time for bed.
