Live the Life...

Imagined....


I so really want to tell myself that right now!
But, of course, this card isn't for me.  It's for a dear sweet friend who I believe has made a change and I believe she is finally achieving what some of what she imagines.  She believes in herself and I am so happy to see that strength of spirit.

I'm featuring this card over on the 3GirlJAM Challenge blog today.  But let me tell you a little about the other stuff I used.

That gorgeous button in the center of the flower is from my favorite home based awesome business, Pinque Peacock.

And so is that Navy crinkle ribbon from 3GirlJAM!

I just love the fact that these buttons are handcrafted in the USA, the owners are home based enthusiastic business owners, and interacting with "customer service" is interacting with the CEO!    Oh and some CEO who is already rich, isn't getting the bulk of the profits...it's going in direct support of the FAMILY!  What's not to love about that.

All the other products are StampinUp! some of which are in the new catalog
- The DSP (SOHO Subway) - all of it from the flower to the beautiful yellow medallion
- Crumb Cake cardstock
- Midnight Muse Ink (inColor)
- Whisper White cardstock
- Daffodil 1/8" Taffeta (retired)

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.
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…
