Since Jen told me about some of the items Aimee wanted at her gradution party, we incorporated them into our scrapbook pages. Aimee wanted a Candy Bar like the penny candy area in the old general stores. So having said that here is our candy page:
Candy Dots Page
How many of you remember buying this candy? Well, we recreated it with melted beads for the candy dots!
On another page we used Aimee's Invitation on the upper corner:
Dr. Suess Graduation Invitation page
Can't have an album for Aimee without Winnie the Pooh, her childhood theme:
Winne the Pooh scrapbook page
Or, her Mom's cross stitch:
Cross stitch Initial Scrapbook page
We used Aimee's paper stack on the rest of the pages with two designer papers in opposite corners for the rest of the album pages for pictures and cards. Can't wait to see her completed album
Last month I helped design album pages for my granddaughter's graduation album (a surprise from her Mom). Aimee likes Vintage things and the theme for her graduation party was Dr. Suess. So, we took the colors from a paper stack Aimee had, (well, we actually took the whole pad!) and incorporated it into the album pages along with the Dr. Suess theme. Here are some of the vintage pages.

Wow, did not realize how far behind I am on my blog posts (I have been busy earning the Stampin' Up! Getaway to Washington, DC). I am still trying to earn the Hawaaii Grand vacation, I have a ways to go and only until the end of June to earn it!!
Anyway, here are the pictures of the TP mini album I created for the Splitcoaststamper May Creative Crew Challenge for the scrapbook focus (CCREW0514SF):

Wishing everyone a Blessed and Happy Easter! A few quick cards that we have made at classes and workshops this past month:
Next club members had the option to maake this a birthday card or Easter card, Debbie chose Easter and this is her card:
Last is a special card I sent to Avery, a special little girl:
Back of Avery's card:
I cased this bunny from a Punch Art swap at convention and turned it into a card. The original punch art was made by LeAnn Lansdell. And in case you missed my previous post, here is a scrapbook page I created with the same punch art bunny:
Hope you have a wonderful day.
What do you do at 4am when you can't sleep? I am writing a blog post! And why am ! awake at 4am, well… I thought I heard a mouse in the house. I know there is at least one out in the eaves as we have caught a couple, six to be exact, so I am waiting to see if there are any more. Well I woke up around 3am with the wind howling and thought I heard a mouse in the eaves, maybe it was nothing, but I was still trying to figure out if I heard a mouse or not at 4am, so I decided I could be more productive downstairs at my computer. I have now uploaded my pictures from this weekend's Stampin' Up! events and resized them for my blog.
On Saturday I was one of the vendors for a fundraiser at Erskine Academy to benefit the Senior class. Below is a picture of some of the participants, there were approximately 60 people working on their scrapbooks and cards.
Below goodie bag items:
This is one of the Make N Takes participants could make. Everyone loved the Easter page, especially the bunny. Isn't she adorable? I was in a Punch Art swap at Stampin' Up!'s 2013 Convention last summer and this bunny was one of the swaps. It was created by LeAnn Lansdell. You just want to pick it up and hold it!
One of my customers came back to my table shortly after finishing the page and showed me the page complete with pictures. It was as if i had designed the page for those photos! Her grandson has the same colors for his clothing as I used for the page. In one photo he is wearing Coastal Cabana and in the other his shirt is pink and his vest has pink and black in it. It was perfect…check out the photo below.
Last month I had a class making a Card in a Box card. My customer Celina was at this fundraiser with some friends and showed them how to make the Card in a Box from my class. All I can say is their creations were beautiful. I did get a picture of one of them which was a get well card for a friend:
Wished I had remembered to take a picture of Kelly's as it was a birthday card for her husband and it was gorgeous.
Just a quick post showing the rest of the pages of my Mini Album for Kelley Jean Gettelfinger's mini album swap at Stampin' Up! 's 2013 Convention. My theme for making this album was "it is all in the details" which in this case is pearls and sponging all through the album.
