Acrylic Disney Album

My friend Jannae and her family came down from Seattle and spent a week at Disneyland.  So, of course  my family had to meet up with her family for a Disney night!  We had so much fun.  I really wanted to do something special for her.  So I had her send me several of her favorite pictures from the vacation. This is what I made for her.  I had a great time making it... and an even better time giving it to her!
(above) This was an acrylic star that I heated with a heat gun and then quickly put it in an embossing folder and ran it through the cuttlebug.  Too fun!!  Here are some more pages...

...and they lived happily ever after!

Disney Garland

I know that it has been a while...  This is a Disney garland that I came up with for a class I did in June out at a scrap weekend in Palm desert.  it was very fun!!  I put a couple of pictures in the class sample.  The first one is Trevor and Kelly.  The second picture is Ryan.

A friend wanted me to make her a frame for her grand daughter. She wanted it to be "girly". Well this is FUN for me. Especially since I have two boys - and they would certainly not appreciate it if I made them something girly! I had picked out some paper, and was all set to go. But then I "accidentally" found this paper! My mom had to run to our local scrapbook store - and I went a long for the ride. Didn't need anything - but of course I had to look around. That is when I found this paper. Fell in love with it right away and knew that it would be perfect! The frame came out sooooo cute! So good in fact, that she ordered two more for Mother's Day presents! Woo Hoo!

I loved the paper so much I went back and bought some more. I had this little box that I have had a while... and just didn't know what I wanted to do with it. Well - now I know! I cut out extra butterflies and "popped" them up. What fun!
Until next time...

Winter Formal

Ryan and his friends all went to the high school's Winter Formal. They all had a blast - of course! There were several friends that went together.
The guys are all being funny!
What?!?! Texting, texting, texting! Does that not crack you up?

January Stamp Camp

Tonight was Stamp Camp. My good friend Jeanne Ciolli creates the projects, and then about 14 people came over and we stamped, laughed, ate, stamped and laughed some more! These are the cards that we stamped. We made 2 of each card. Aren't they the cutest cards!? We have so much fun. We have been doing monthly stamp camps, believe it or not, for like 4 years!! I am lucky that Mal doesn't mind a whole bunch of women coming over and taking over the downstairs once a month. :o)

Jeanne is amazing. She always comes up with the best projects for us all to do. It is our creative little get together! Check out her blog to see some other projects!!

Tomorrow is Sunday - and for once I don't have anything going on! And I have Monday off, too! I am hoping to play in my craft room. I have the scrapping bug big time! I have several little projects that need to be finished. I have several shows that I have taped and need to watch. And supposedly rain is coming to our area. I want it to rain... rain... rain. I want a super rainy, cool weekend.

So, cross your fingers for rain for me!!
:o) Until next time....
