Friend's blog

Do you ever read a post of one of your friends and just want everyone to see it? I do. Lots. I have some awesome friends both new and old, what can I say. So I really liked my friends post and this is geared towards the mommies out there: Play Dress

A Pookie

This video was taken March 10, 2009. I had put another one of a similar series on previously. This one just cracks me up. I have another video coming soon that is more recent. I was just going through watching video per RJ request. She can't get enough of herself.

A Package for Holly

I sent my sister a package two weeks ago with some fun things in it. This altered H was one them.
Also inside was the purse I made. My friend lined it for me.

Also sent her a monkey and a scarf. Hope it brightened your day, sis!

My first attempt at using an embossing template. The template is by Anna Griffin. I like how the card turned out. I sent it to my secret sister.

HHH Friday

This is a card and set that I made for Unity's August Guest Designer Challenge. It was a 1, 2, 3, challenge: 1 stamp, 2 patterned papers, and 3 embellishments. My 1 stamp is Relax from the June KOTM. Cardstock is DCWV and so is the main patterned paper; it is from the Once upon a Time stack. The second patterned paper is K & Company. My 3 embellishments were the ribbon (Target $1), the flower (Kaiserscrapbook that I sprayed with Red Velvet Glimmer mist), and the brown gem (Michael's $1). I used my cuttlebug to emboss the cardstock and Antique Linen Distress Ink to age it. I stamped Relax with Walnut Distress ink. Both Distress Inks were used on cardstock and patterned papers. Oh and the brown organza bag is what Unity stamps used to come in! Inside it is a fizzy ball. In the jar are bath crystals, in the tube is bath confetti and then a little body massager!

Jump Time

Jensen Family Reunion
Placerville, CA
Little Miss Audrey Jane Hansen and Rebecca Joy Palmer were playing this game.

Rebecca says "jump time" and they jump on the air matress. She would say "water time" or "mud time" and they would go to the water or the mud. She would say "door time" and go to the tent. And they would go from one to the next to the next. They had such fun together!
