Guest Star for Jenni Bowlin Studios!!


Just wanted to share with you the Guest Star design work that I did for Jenni Bowlin Studios this month.  It is up on their blog as of last night and I am over the moon happy! 

Here is a wreath that I made using a slew of antique buttons from my Nanna.  The Flowers are created with the technique that Jenni Bowlin herself showed me at a trade show one time. 

And a layout using the Red/Black line.  Such pretty papers!  They were perfect to use with a picture of Christian and Cleo!
Thank you for looking and sharing this moment with me! 
Have a wonderful day!

Hey Boo Boo!

No, not Yogi Bear's best boy! 

I've been calling him Boo Boo for the longest time now.  Saw the October Afternoon bear there and grabbed a couple kits and went to town!

The Gift of Flight ~ a Noel Mignon challenge

The layout below, The Gift of Flight, was a moving piece to create.  It reflects upon me and where I have come from this past year and what gifts I have given myself to soar in life.  Right now I am quite at peace with myself and know that this has been a long time coming.  Being able to spread my wings has been the best gift I have been able to give myself.  There are blessings to be had each day, the creative muse to tinker with, love, hopes, dreams, all sorts of magical gifts in me of all people!  That may sound a bit hokey to some and I know that a year ago I would have laughed at saying such a thing, but now I know.  

I have The Gift of Flight.

It would behoove me to mention that I was so inspired to create this layout in response to a Challenge, called The Gift,  on the Noel Mignon Challenge Blog.  Noel is generously gifting TWO of these kits to the winner of the Challenge.  The idea is to at least gift one to someone else.  Isn't that the best idea??  

So think about it...  Think about the word "Gift" and see where it takes you.  Perhaps I have inspired you to enter Noel's Challenge..

All my best to you and yours,

An album of Joy!

I created this Mini-album as part of my DT work for Posh Designs.

It started out as a tutorial on how to do Bodice Lacing on a Mini.  This week I finished it up as a Joy album to capture the random joyful moments that happen in life.  You know, those simple moments that sneak up on you and make you smile.  :) 

Enjoy your day!
