Ladies you did such an incredible job and was so inspired by the extra creative WOW factor that you put forth on your pages! Here are the photos that I promised sure and scrapbook them!

Give yourselves a big pat on the back...20 pages...whew! I am so proud of you and I hope you will treasure your books for years to come!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is the perfect time to share a little hand-made piece of love with your special someone. Here is an adorable slider card that I created for a past Cuttlebug Challenge. I used the Swiss Dot embossing folder and inked the debossed side heavily with my Fire Brick distress ink pad. Placed my white cardstock in the folder and ...wa la...I have a beautifully embossed inked paper! You should give it a try...You're sure to "fall in love" with it!

Scott and I would like to wish ALL of YOU a wonderful Valentine's Day! We hope your day will be filled with much LOVE, LAUGHTER, and PhOtOgrApHs! XXOOXXOOXXOOXXOO!

Best Variety of new Spring Blooms.....and the winner is.....PRIMA hands down! They have the most beautiful flower assortments this season. Lots of dimension and great variety of colors and of you'll love some of the new Bling & fabulous butterflies! It was great to see how many fabric flowers they are coming out with and wait till you see their new canvas minibooks...too cute!

Another favorite of mine from Prima are these new Felt Silhouettes...check the one out in the sample picture below. They are so striking and come in many various designs and beautiful rich colors! Definitely a "must have" for me!!! And I love, love, love the new canvas maessenger bags and camera bags by Donna Downey!
