Bodacious Bouquet Card and Gift Basket

I have a few gifts to send to friends and so I came up with the idea of this card and gift basket using my Bodacious Bouquet set from Stampin' Up! and this beautiful "Samantha" Crate Paper. I love this paper because it is two sided. The sentiment is Noteworthy from Stampin' Up!

I found the die cut of the basket at my local Archiver's store and I couldn't resist making a few of these gift baskets. I assembled the little basket and filled it with that fun crinkly paper and some goodies from Bath and Body Works.

Thanks for looking.

Basic Grey "Blush" Gift Set & Journal

It took a couple of weeks to finish . . . but here it is . . . my Basic Grey "Blush" gift set and composition journal. I made this for our dear friend Taylor from Tayloredexpressions. Taylor has been so sweet to us and she made some very special things for Willow and Izzy. We wanted to let her know how much she is appreciated . . . and this is what we made for her. It is a 5 x 7 metal album tin made by Pine Cone Press covered in my favorite Basic Grey "Blush" paper. I used some of that great ribbon I got from Michaels, a flower die cut by Quickutz, and a metal eyelet from We R Memory Keepers. I made Taylor a "Delight In Life" card, four cards for the inside of the tin, and a composition journal that matched.

Thanks for looking!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!

Today was National Scrapbook Day at my favorite store . . . Archiver's. Lot's of make and takes (I love make and takes) and lot's of free give aways (I love those too). I hit the jackpot cuz they just got a new shipment of Crate Paper, and I got the last Twirl. I have been wanting Twirl forever and I was happy to finally find it. So now I have a lot of stuff to work on and will hopefully post my projects here on my blog for you to see.

I am sorry that I haven't posted for over a week (shame on me). I have been very busy with work . . . or lack thereof . . . the mortgage business is very slow right now . . . and I have been busy taking care of Willow. She gets her cast off on Monday (Wooooopee!!!!!) and we can't wait. It has been a very long five months since her broken leg accident and the two surgeries that followed and we are finally expecting a full recovery. I am posting a picture of all my goodies I got today and a picture of Willow in her little tent. Willow and I want to thank everyone for their well wishes and for the cards, e-mails, phone calls, and gifts. She loves her blanket and toy that she got from Tink, her collar and treats from Taylor, and her scrapbook and treats from Big Sis and Bandit. We also want to thank CJ and Muffin for all their wonderful phone calls, e mails and for the beautiful cupcake stamps they sent to me. And of course we must thank Paris for the beautiful flowers she gave me on the day of Willow's first surgery and all the support she has given to me since. We could not have made it through these long five months without all of our wonderful friends. We love you all!!!
