Not my usual post....




As I'm sure you've noticed if you follow my blog ......  that.....my posts have been few and far between.  A busy summer and a busy part time business is the only thing I can blame it on other than the fact that I'm just NOT a great writer.  Big surprise, eh? NOT

So...for today I wanted to share a piece of art work that my daughter created.  She is an amazing artist and is currently attending UNCW as a full time art student...throw in a little German Language and her job and boy, she's got it going on!  (yes, proud momma here)

She texted me a photo of a project that they were required to create.  Something 3D using foam poster board.  She mentioned that she had to use three textures, one color and that she got a thumbs up from her peers on the critique.  I'm sure there were more detailed directions, but that's the gist.

So...for me...I was blown away by the fact that foam backed poster board could be so beautiful.  Who knew?  

Thanks to the lovely Cass B for allowing me to brag about her work a bit.  You can see some of her hobby on her website, All Things CAB.   If you stop by, be sure to mention that I sent you!

Hope you enjoy!  Happy Sunday!

Super Hero Mini Albums


A really fun and easy way to create a personalized gift for any occasion.  This occasion just happened to be a birthday party for 6 year old twins!



I started out with coaster sets from the clearance spot at Michael's.
My goal was to make these two small books for my niece and nephew's 6th birthday. 
I wanted something small and sturdy for them so that they could look at them over and over. 



These ended up being 12 little pages of pictures.  Most of the pictures were Halloween ones because of their theme party this year.  


I added buttons, brads, layers of distressed edge papers and of course some ribbon. 
I chose to hand stamp just a few sentiments. 



 Most of the papers I used were from the materials I had from their banner, invites and party favors, an easy peasy way to use those scraps.

Hope you have a *Super* day today! 
Thanks for stoppin'
