Please vote for my scrapbook page!

a page!!!!

Yes...can you believe it? And I'm thrilled with how it turned out! This is my littlest when he was just four (he's 11 now) and he took his "Mom" tattoo very seriously! I punched out many, many hearts and glued them together to make my own chipboard embellishments. I love how they turned out too! Anyway...I entered this into the Craft Warehouse "Scrapbook Queen" contest and I'd really, really appreciate it if you'd vote for me! Hopefully the link above will take you to the right place, but if not, you start at Craft Warehouse and go to the photo gallery, then to the scrapbook queen contest, then to the "Salem" store...then find that adorable boy! You have to be a registered user, but that part is easy peasy. Also, before you click on "vote" you can rank the layout..."5" is the highest rating. Please, please, pretty please. And if you would like to vote for my daughter's page, click on "store employees" and give her a great big shout out too. She used one of her little brother (same child) only he's in the bathtub...and taking it seriously to shave at the age of 3.

Shout Out to SheetLoad!

I think you all know I adore SheetLoad! What a wonderful place to go to when you'd like to make up some quick cards with ease. And...there's new SheetLoad Mini! These offer such wonderful ideas, you won't be fact, you'll probably get on a roll and make a whole bunch of cards!! And...if you do, you can win a prize!!! It's a "Show Us Your SheetLoad and Win" contest!!! Isn't that great? What are you waiting for? Go...create...enter!!!

Jest because...

I had to have it be "jest" because...I just adore this jester. I've had him colored for quite some time and just hadn't put him on a card yet...until I got the diamond soon as I saw that folder, I knew how I would use it!!! Now I just need the "jest because" sentiment!

And then for fun, I thought I'd put up a couple of the comment verifications I've gotten...I'm "apeshy" and qrkie" I knew I was a little quirky, but I didn't know I was shy around apes!

I decorated a box!

This was my first attempt at decorating a wooden box. I love how this turned out. I envision it filled with old love letters tied together with a ribbon.

Complete CASE-ing going on here!

I loved these cards so much, I had to CASE! I hope the gals don't mind, but I just love these cards! This one was CASEd from Nancy at iSTAMP. She does such beautiful work!

And then this one, I just adore!! Christina from Flowers and Ink made the gorgeous card that inspired me. I didn't have the incredible stamp she used, so I computer generated the latte cup and then I got creative!! I know, hard to believe since everything else came directly from the other gals! Look at this:I got the little swirl that is the "steam" from a CTMH swirl set...isn't that perfect. Now the part I was most pleased with is the $1 heart...when I cut out the cup and placed it over the heart, it made the perfect handle!!!
