Logan on his 4th birthday! I can't believe it (ps. part of this layout is from paperposicles, that awesome stem)

my pleasure (done for scrapbook dreamer earlier, but I never uploaded till now)
I get lost
When the road stretches out in front of me,
My feet hit the ground in rhythm with my music
the simple beauty of flow!

I find myself
In my world of creativity.
This place where I can make something unique and special to me

I retreat
Inside the pages
there is a world that causes me for a time to forget my own

I revitalize
Inside a mug
the smell, the taste, the aura!

my little Logan's first dental exam. I know I'm a slacker, but no cavities so yay anyway! I did this as a sketch challenge for letscrap

hmm what to say? Well, I got a short run in last night, better than nothing. Logan Birthday is approaching so quickly, I can't believe he's almost 4. I created a couple layouts recently that I've loved. And, I really need to get to Roberts so I can discover some more goodies to add to my scrap supplies. I hope you each stop by theeverdayscrapper. Become part of our forum and enjoy the challenges. We have an awesome group over there ready to help you out and give you ideas on how to do things. Don't forget, my day is Tuesday (as in technique Tuesday)

Yay I made this layout of the cancer relay! It was amazing... I'm so happy my mom and Grandma B are survivors. Wish you coul've been there grandma B.

I'm making one of these with Woo's hands too. Today hopefully. I just love the way it turned out

1. cut a 3x12 piece of patterned paper, ink the edges and glue it around the container.
2. Cut another 3x12 paper. then use your fiskers to puch the edges. Ink and glue around container.

3. trace your lid then cut out the resulting circle and fit it inside the lid. (I also ink the edges of this.

4. get your ribbon and glue it around your container.
5. Ink your choice of stamps and then stamp the container

6. puch hole in the lid and side of the container.
7. slide fiber through to the top of the lid. Here, I like to add my button and tie a knot!
