MME challenge

I 'spring' into a 1 hour LO using MME. Yay... some days I just got this burst of energy and decide not to OVERTHINK and punge right into doing an LO........ and I wanted it simple in design. I bought some MME last week at LSS and decide to join in the MME challenge here. Title: Right Now I guess I am feeling thankful and very blessed with life now... so just journal some feelings on the paper . I follow the sketch but decide to cut my the red paper to a nice circle and hand sew some stitches. I love these range of kraft papers... gorgeous muted colours. At the bottom, I pleated a paper and stamped a music note. See this new butterfly stamp.... Martha Stewart never disappoints. My new Fav of stamps now. Details:
Thanks for looking.

so much happening

First of all, some projects for YSS. I made this 'wedding book' for a couple getting married in Dec. I am giving them some words of advice or wisdom.... I cut a 12x12 into half and folded into this. All from Making Memories Wedding Collection. Front: I love the Making Memories Shimmer flourish in blue. Add a nice touch of colour LO: Teamwork Pardon the bad photography....... it's been raining and we hardly get clear sky. Here this LO is dedicated to my 2 girls who played so well together on our trip to the park. Daddy was away for so many days and this is 1 good day they stopped whining and complaining... They worked together to build a little sand castle. Good for mommy who need a break from their screaming sometimes. LOL LO: ME This is one of my good photos... LOL... she looked so happy throwing sand around.. not afraid to be dirty. Just happy. I love this picture of her... LO: Ellise-rina In case you are wondering what title that is... a spin off 'Ballerin"....... she added her own name into that... and decided that's what we called her when she is dancing. We borrow a tutu for her and click away. But she turned so shy. But she still look so cute All products supplied by YSS. Check them out today! Lots on clearance. And still continue to check out InspireME (Websters) cos the inspiration there is contagious.... seriously it is the best online crop any manufacturer dreams of........ the atmosphere... the participation..... from ALL OVER THE WORLD. I met some cool Australians.... Japanese scrappers.... totally awesome. And it is still going strong ... today should be Day 6...... I am hooked.

so thankful

hello friends, how was your week? Mine was filled with some good and some 'not so good' news. Here... I am one of the winners at White With 1 challenge.... I love this blog for its inspiration. And I just got a email from Prima that I won in this random draw. I love Prima. What a lovely surprise! I dont usually win things. LOL And not so good news... say a prayer for my sister........ she is going for a surgery thurs...... she found a lump on her breasts and things just escalate so fast.... surgery is quickly scheduled and the danger is she is pregnant so that adds some fear and stress. I am just praying that our GOOD AND FAITHFUL God will carry her through. I will be with her..... next week, playing nurse and being with her in the day............. Friends, I am shocked... my sister is barely 30 and this happened to her. I am trusting in the Lord. Ok........ the crop at Webster Pages starts tomorrow......... go in and there and join us....
