Memory is the strength....

Thank you for all the well wishes for my mom.  She is home now and resting.  Told to take it easy and no stress.  They did all kinds of tests and they really don't know what caused her to have trouble breathing.  Sent her home with an inhaler and hoping that helps.  Thank goodness that she is home now.

I want to share with you a favorite of mine.  An altered address book.  This is really one of my favorites - I love how the rose stamp from Kitchen Sink Stamp turned out.  Took a LOT of practice, but I finally got it to look almost real.  I need to practice with the others now.  Mounted the rose on some Old Olive that I cut with my Oval Nesties.  The sentiment is one of my favorites too from SU, but retired.  Not sure if you can see the vellum butterfly sitting there.  A MS punch for the white hearts layer.  I used my BIA to bind the spine.  I always like to hang a keychain on the spine with a charm and this one has 2 intertwined silver hearts.  The DSP already had the lace border on it so I thought it was perfect for the spine area. 
They are a lot of work, but I just have a lot of fun doing these.

I received my new SU products today.  Time to start playing with my NEW Christmas goodies and wait til you see them. I love making Christmas cards and I never have enought to give out at Christmas.  This year, I plan on starting right away and trying to build up enough.  I will be having a few classes come September for Christmas projects and will let you know once I figure out the dates.  it's never too early to start.

I received three emails yesterday enquiring about the Little Miss Sunshine outfit I posted and another regarding my Hibiscus purse.  Gotta get busy and get these done too!!  It's going to be a busy week, but I'm happy about that.  Thanks ladies for liking what I do and supporting me:)
