Springtime List Book Beauty




Hi! Today, I'm over on the Pinque Peacock blog presenting this beautiful little book!

It was a SUPER QUICK project.  Which I needed since I've had little time for crafting.

I needed a quick project...but mostly I just needed the crafting time!

For some reason, I'm really into making and decorating books right now.  This book is 8.25 x 5 and is filled with blank sheets.  Maybe it will be for lists, things to keep track of, and maybe I'll sketch...or even write down my dreams!

I decorated the outside by making a flower out of:

- Burlap ribbon I purchased from Julie Odil's CTMH shop
- an old scrap of ribbon (but pretty)
- and a couple buttons (the blue one was one of my recent freebies from SU Saleabration - got to love free)

Topping it off with one of the Pinque Peacock's angel pins....mine is missing her halo (which actually is quite fitting for me!)



I LOVE this book.  I just may never use it, which would be a serious waste of beauty, don't you think?

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:

Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.

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…
