Good day to all my wonderful family and friends. Just look at these flowers. They are just so beautiful. I made them using the Spellbinders, Donna Salazar's Rose Creations.  I so love the way they turn out. The red one and the rose colored ones are made using glittery cardstock. The peach and the pink one are made using plain white cardstock and inking the color in. I think I like that look better. I think now that I look at it I may try a very light shade of a color and inking with a color a bit darker. Hope you like them... enjoy and Gods blessings to you.
OH MY GOSH... after posting this I was scrolling down the page and saw that I had already posted the same pic.. This old age is a real kicker..

6 X 6 "Before I was a Mother"

Today I made this scrapbook for my daughter. I found a collection of fun photos of her before she was a Mom and what an awesome finished product it made. I will post pics but it would be hard to describe because I kinda just created it as I was going. I hope you like it as much as I liked making it.
 This is the front cover tied with a length of grosgrain ribbon. The papers I used are just out of my stash. I don't know the maker. I used dememtial stickers by K& Company and also Etcetera Jemz stickers
 This is the first page. I found photos of Jennifer when she was in Grammer school.. the little scroll thing there is made with a Sizzlits die, and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The frames are die cut with my cuttlebug. They are nestabilities dies.
 This page has an extra insert for more photos and a fold out flap.
 This page has 2 fold out flaps, Jennifer made a beautiful  Jeanie for halloween
 This was one Halloween where the employees where Jennifer worked at the time all dressed up like scare crows.. They were just so dang cute. again the flip out pages.
 this page with the girls sexy legs is so cute. The flip out page has a pocket with window to hold a wallet sized photo.
 This is the same page but with a flap added for more photos.
 more flip out pages on this one.
 and yet another flip out page.
 I see this one is quite blurry but you can maybe see where I added a die cut page as an afterthought so I could add more photos. You can see better in the next photo.
 so much fun putting this together.
 Here are more photos of my always smiling daughter.. even one where she is getting a belly button ring installed.. I guess that is what you would call it. She didn't like it so she let it grow back the way God made it.
 and the last page.. See my hand there?? those are age spots all over it!! LOL
This photo I took from above the book when it is open. you can see most of the flip out pages that I added here and there.  Any questions just ask and I will do what I can to help.. Thanks for looking.
