Happy Friday




I created the above gift bag last night. I started it believing I could do something Father's Day-ish, but alas, I added a butterfly, because none of my more masculine images inspired me. Guess I'll have to try again on the Pop's Day gift.

The images used on the front are from Unity Stamp Company, from several different sets. The cardstock, ribbon, and Manchester Series designer paper are from Stampin Up!.

I have a couple smiles to share:

On my way to work this morning, a cute little turtle was making his way across the road. It's about the 4th turtle I've seen lately. All the rain must be running them out of their normal living environment. Since I wanted him to survive, I pulled over, picked him up (and he was not a happy fella about that one bit), and walked a good 50 yards into the back yard area of a retirement community...and put him down in the wet grass. I hope he isn't motivated to start the journey back in the direction of the road again. He was pretty small and most of the people that drive down that particular road work in one of two large buildings...and they are usually in a big hurry, talking on their cell phones and NOT paying attention...which means, he could easily be overlooked.

The other smile I had this morning was the quote on a shirt my friend, Paul, is wearing today. It's BRIGHT PINK and GREEN (looks sort of like a rugby shirt), with a breast cancer ribbon on the front...and reads:



Get it? Hysterical.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
