Getting Grungy!

Last night I had the honor of meeting Tim Holtz at Scrapbook Central in Coconut Creek. Tomorrow I will have the awesome thrill of taking 3 of his classes (Words & Windows, Distress-a-Palooza, and Paradise Found). I preordered this cute shirt which he signed. I was shaking so much as you can see I had a death grip on the "Getting Grungy with Tim" shirt as the photo was taken. Silly me! He is just as cool and down-to-earth as he appears on his blog.

Recent purchases

After a long hiatus that I can only relate to not finding what I was looking for, Michaels has once again won me over. The fact they now have PRIMA say it in crystals BLING surprised me beyond words.

I love chipboard, fabric and rubons so when I saw these at AC Moore I knew I had to have them.

America's Next Top Model - BEST season ever!

I just watched the last episode of ANTM's Cycle 10 on YouTube. I was ecstatic when I heard that Whitney won. For those of you who have not seen this season of the show, Whitney was this season's full figured contestant. I strongly disagree with the fashion's industry definition of full figured being anything above a size 8. The decision to choose Whitney as this year's TOP model sends a clear message to educate the public. Tyra Banks has consistently shown she is a trailblazer when it comes to rewarding unique talent and assessing true potential.

Congratulations Whitney!

Sabrina's gift

I love to give unexpected gifts, so when I found out when my cousin Sabrina's was I created this canvas photo frame for her. Her birth was a mother's day gift to her own mother. This frame took the ink so perfectly I fell in love with it. It made me feel so happy to be giving this to her. She deserves this small gift and so much more.
Happy Birthday, Sabrina!

Random Act of Kindness

I am completely amazed at how many friends I have made through scrapbooking. One of these new friends is Kendra McCracken. I admired this blue flower on one of her creations and she was thoughtful enough to send it to me along with Love Elsie alphabet stickers and rubons. I was moved to tears when I opened this wonderful package. Thanks again, Kendra!

Mother's Day

Despite a hectic work schedule I had a great time creating this special card for MY mom! -- I used the new Stampin'Up scallop punch, We R Memory Keepers Foil/Glitter/Flock rubons, and Prima Say it in Crystals swirls.
