5 Years

I celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary on September 24th. The traditional 5 year gift is wood so I wanted to think of something creative to make. I saw this memory box and knew instantly what I was going to do. I stained the wood with a few different colors of ink and used my scrapbook supplies to decorate the top. As far as everything inside, I included little trickets, all with meaning
Inside are the following:
A key to my heart
A clock for our time together
A four leaf clover because I"m lucky to have my husband
A picture of two little kids to represent our kids
A initial for each of us
A penny from the year we were married.

Pillowcase Dress

My niece's Birthday is coming up and I've been itching to make her some things. With two little boys I don't get to make dresses, bows and things with ruffles. I didn't have a pillowcase to use but bought some adorable fabric and used the same concept of the pillowcase to make this little dress complete with satin ribbon ties.

So Silly

I finally found some time to sit down and scrap. Scrapbooking usually isn't a summer hobby of mine but I find it so relaxing that all my supplies are still out. Hopefully I'll continue to find time to scrap and unwind...

Glitter, Shimmer and Shine

The Glitter, Shimmer and Shine class is over at Feeling Scrappy so I thought I would share some of my work. I got quite a few cards done with this class. I learned a lot of great techniques and am honored that I was able to help teach part of the class.

The Get Inked class over at Feeling Scrappy is over, I had a blast showing some techniques and learning a few new ones. I thought I would share some of my work from the class with everyone.

One of my favorite things about Spring is seeing all the beautiful flowers in bloom. Some tulips from my yard and lilacs from my sister, a wonderful spring arrangement.
