How about a pretty Mother's Day card?

I'm so excited and proud to share that I was asked to be part of the Creative Charms Design Team! The company makes such pretty and unique charms, brads, and other embellishments, and they are so fun to work with. You can check out lots of inspiration from the whole team on the blog!

For my first Creative Charms project, with Mother's Day fast approaching, I thought what better way to put some of these gorgeous Sparkled Flowers, Sparkled Butterflies, and Gradient Gem Stickers to good use? I made this card for my mother-in-law (shhhh, don't tell her! :). I used gems from both the blue and green packs - I love how they dress up these chipboard letters that have been in my stash forever!

Love the dimension!

Here are some close-ups of the pretty, sparkly goodness:

And with all those great October Afternoon paper scraps left on my table, I put together this easy little multi-purpose card and added the Vintage Brads for that perfect finishing touch!

Thanks for letting me share!

graduation day

I know, I know!! I haven't been updating my blog... mostly because I haven't been scrapping! It's been a crazy, busy semester. But... it's almost over and I expect to get a lot more scrapping done in the coming month! :)

In the meantime, here's a page that seemed to take me the whole semester to finish, LOL! Since Tyler is about to finish 1st grade, I guess it's about time I scrapped his kindergarten graduation. :) I LOVE this Scrap Within Reach Paper Boy line! With so many pics I kept the page design simple.

Your big day - kindergarten graduation! But unfortunately, it didn't work out quite like we expected it to. A nasty tummy big was running through your class that day and kids were dropping like flies! Some didn't even make it to the graduation that evening. You weren't feeling well, but then perked up so we went; but a few minutes before the ceremony was to begin, you threw up all over your graduation gown. You sat with us and walked up onto the stage to get your diploma, but that was the extent of your participation for the evening. Still, it was definitely a memorable night!
