2 of YOU

My two very favorite girls in the world... my daughter and my sister.  The two of you make this girl feel very blessed! 

And to think that I did 'potty prayers' for both of you!!!  (Little inside joke about being 3 years old and praying in the bathroom for a baby sister.)

We made this adorable scrapbook page at convention.  It was 8.5 x 8.5 to fit in the new chipboard photo albums - go see that new catalog!!!  When I returned home I had this amazing picture of my 2 girls sitting on my nightstand... so I added it to the page and mounted everything on textured Baja Breeze and Rose Red cardstock to place in my 12x12 frame.  It sits on my kitchen counter!

This cute page uses a felt flower, a flower button, grosgrain ribbon, chipboard alphabet letters, white craft ink, the new scallop punch - that is a marvelous invention - and the new butterfly stamp set called Flight of the Butterfly.  Colors are Baja Breeze, Rose Red, More Mustard, and Mellow Moss.

Convention Craziness!

On Stage recognition!  It really doesn't take much... that many women together just creates a tizzy of excitement.  Which is why I go back each year!!!  My treasured week with MOM - she is the CRAZIEST one of the bunch!!!!!
