Never Overshadow Your Dreams


Another FWF (and another late post!)  So, I'll be quick and to the point! 

I created this card for my daughter, who graduated this year (if you remember me bragging back in June).  I'm going to see her soon and I wanted to make sure that I have a little $omething for her...it'll be stashed in this card!  The sentiment is Unity, from the April 2012 KOM

The buttons are 3 Girl Jam Vintage Buttons.  I think they "completed" this card pretty nicely, don't you?

NOW
I really need to go and explore all the other blogs!

I need to go check out all the FWF creations on the Unity Blog
AND
I want to go check out the new 3 Girl Jam Challenge Blog (see details below in my OTHER post today)

I like how you used the buttons. I never think to thread them, but it looks so much more finished that way!

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…

Celebrating Friendship

Today I'm participating in a really fun hop!  We're celebrating my friend, Julie's, 2nd anniversary blogging.  We all met through our mutual love for crafting.  It's been such a great two years admiring each other's work, sharing ideas, and supporting each other in our artsy endeavors.
If you want to see the entire hop, start at Julie's blog

This is the project I created for the hop!

There are LOTS of prizes that have been donated by some wonderful companies!  (see Julie's blog for all the details). Just leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win one of MANY prizes. 
I'm ready for a great weekend.   I'm counting down the days until Spring. AND taking Monday and Tuesday OFF just because!
Leave me a comment telling me what you appreciate most about your friends.  Me, I love that I can reach out and get support when I need it.  Just recently, it really came in handy!

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…
