Mini Album Share - Kike

Now, before you go getting upset with me over this name, first off, I have to say, I never, ever knew that it was a slur.  Someone told me after I made it.  This was made for a dear friend of mine who is from Spain, so secondly, it is a nickname for Enrique.  And they would pronounce it Key-Kay.  So please, don't turn away...  This was a fun little book that I made when she had her first son, Enrique, as well as a card, and a little formula bucket that I altered and then stuffed with little goodies.  Enjoy!

I used so many things, I will try to remember:
formula pail
lunch bags
ribbon from craft store
small baby supplies
MME paper
ChipChatter Letters
Pebbles Stickers
Paper Clips from Staples
Paint Chip from hardware store
Basic Grey Rubons
Imaginese Rubons
Phrase Cafe Stickers
Ice DotZ
Bazzill Basics Cardstock

Mini Album Share - T34 Flight

This is a mini album I made for Gadget after our first Formation Clinic together, back in 2011.  Every year we go to New Smyrna Beach, FL to have a rustbreaker, which is the first clinic of the year, just before Sun N Fun kicks off the season.  These are amazing planes, and even more amazing pilots.  It is so much fun and is the highlight of our year.  It was a fun book, and I hope it expresses to him how much I enjoy it and how thankful I am that he includes me in this part of his life.

Map, old National Geographic pull out from the magazine
Lots of ribbon and trim from my mom's stash I inherited
Chip Chatter
Manilla folders to make the pages
comb binder
Making Memories rub ons, brads
paper clips
old desktop calendar
slide mount
7 Gypsies stickers
paint chip from hardware store
Basic Grey rub on

Layout Share - Truly Believe

Good morning!  Boy has God been blessing us with some amazing weather and beautiful sunrises here in Indiana.  Love it!    I've been working in the studio with the windows open serenaded by the birds and crickets.  Sweet music!

I know, I'm even a little late for the Christmas in July, and no one really wants to stop and think about winter right now.  It will be here soon enough.  It seems like just yesterday the trees were getting their leaves.

This is a layout I did a few years ago, with pictures from 1999.  Some of it was hard material.  Before we were married, let alone divorced.  When my mom was still alive (though right after her biopsy) and still very much herself.  But that is what this business is all about right?  Story-telling and therapy and healing.  It is a simple one, but that is OK.

Papers are Stampin' Up!, I don't remember who the stickers are, sorry.  And the Star BlockZ you can get here as acrylic and here as cardstock and here as digital.  Look for the acrylic and cardstock to be combined soon! 

Thanks so much for checking it out!
