Also don't forget to check the Gallery to see what the Haute Babe Angelica has done with it already.

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.

I am posting the pic for the kit, Butterfly kisses this morning! YAY. (I'm on the east coast.)

This is a Becky Fleck sketch that I really like for an 8 1/2 x 11 page. It's from Page Maps.

August 1st! this Friday! YAY. :) I'm seeing butterflies everywhere! Today's inspiration comes in the form of a quote...

If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies. ~Author Unknown

:) Happy Scrappin'
I do have a few layouts that I owe you. I haven't forgotten. :)

rewards :)

Because I am just starting out. I would like to offer a free kit to anyone who helps spread the love. :) I will send out a free kit to anyone who refers 5 people to buy kits. When they buy a kit, they give me your name and email address and you get the credit. :) Free kit for you!

color of the day...

Ok, I haven't posted a color of the day in a while. I love pink and orange together. This dress is the perfect combo. (love the dress) So here's the layout with those colors with an experiment in modeling paste. I took the transluscent modeling paste and mixed it with an orange acrylic paint and some glitter and blobbed it on the edges. (adding the pic of the LO)

If you go on over to she has some cool sketches. This is the most recent one. I plan on using it today. ~My scrappin' plans for the weekend? hmmm, I'm not sure. I'm not sure if anyone is comin' over to crop tonight or not. Actually I told my DD that I'd print some pic for her to scrap today. So that's what we'll do. :)

tags tags tags tags

I find that I have a ton of Basic Grey tag sheets and I don't use all the tags. So this is what I finished up today. I used ALL the tags from a BG tag sheet. :) If you click on the image you can get a better view.

The Work Box is every crafter's dream. It's a workspace and a storage solution that looks like a beautiful, high-end piece of furniture. There are drawers, nooks and spaces for all of your stuff! On wheels, it is easily moved to just the right location. This system comes with a collapsible work table and adjustable shelves. There are 83 removable canvas totes with label inserts and 20 removable, clear zippered pouches in three sizes. Closed, each unit measures 3'Wx32"Dx6'H and when fully opened measures 9'W (unit can be opened into a "U" shape that measures 7'W if space is an issue).
This comes in Vanilla and Knotty Alder. You can also choose the raised panel or beadboard. (As with the smaller one also) $1295.00 for the Vanilla and Black and $1495.00 for the Knotty Alder. (plus shipping)

The Mini Workbox is every crafters' dream! This 32"Dx36"Wx36"H (closed) workspace/storage solution looks like a beautiful high end piece of furniture. It is a worktable with adjustable shelves on wheels that folds into a handsome box, keeping supplies out of sight & protected. Includes a 50-piece storage drawer set to stuff your stuff in style! I LOVE this! This is $795.00 plus shipping. It also comes in black. This can be ordered also. If you order several pieces a discount can be given. email me at


I'm not yet posting my pics, but I do have this wonderful image of Kate Moss in this fabulous sheer star blouse. Inspiration! I love the little stars everywhere. How can I use that. (I already LOVE stars)

I'm back

from Beautiful Lake Tahoe! I love it there. It's our dream to someday own a second home there. I'll post a pic later today. The only issue was that there was a ton of smoke in the air so it was brown instead of that gorgeous blue! (that's CA these days. I should say thank you to all the firefighters out there fighting those nasty things...thank you!) On Saturday we could actually see across the lake to the other side. Anyways... I'm just sharing some Christmas in July. (Daisy D's) I'll post later.

My friend's baby!
If you LOVE happy things you've got to check out that link and see and picture of this sweet baby girl my friend is adopting from China!

Cool Ribbon Spool Storage!

I LOVE this ribbon box. It's ONLY $14.95 and it holds 27 spools of ribbon! I think that's a deal. If anyone wants to pre-order send me an email... Look how it's in neat little compartments so there is no mess! I need some. :) If you scroll through my old posts somewhere you will see the other way I store my ribbon. I like it, but there is ribbon that is WAY to long that I will be leaving on the spools so this is perfect.

Here's a combo of the texture and ruffle thing I've been feelin' lately and the 8 1/2 X 11 sketch.

Oh Ruffle Fluff!

:) Here's the skirt I made. The second one I'm working on is lavender. LOTS of material!


2FER! $29.99 That is a GREAT price! Sandisk sell them from their website for $34.99. I think I need to get some. I used to shoot in JPEG now I shoot in RAW whenever I can and it takes up soooo much more space. I should tell you where to get 'em, huh? Calumet Photo
