Bali Breeze Project

I was thinking of a perfect summer project and couldn't think of a better card mix than Bali Breeze. I hope that you would agree. If you would like to join me for this class, email me and let me know.
Happy stamping today!

I have decided to jump into my life today. No more holding back, making excuses or procrastinating any further. So what FINALLY made me get off my keister? My kids. (No, it wasn't the 8 cups of coffee. I hadn't had those yet.) My children has this knack of hovering and eavesdropping on anything that goes on in my home. Yes, there are NO secrets in this house. I was thinking about it this morning and it dawned on me. How much of my procrastinating have they witnessed? Have I shown them an example of a virtuous woman? Ummm, I'm thinking not. It's not that I haven't been a good mom but I haven't been holding myself to a higher standard. I want them to know that if you want something, GO FOR IT with ALL that you have!!

Today's card was made in advance, yes I said advance, for July's pink pj nite. The card was made from Apricot Appeal cardstock, Pixie Pink stamp pad, a popsicle stick, a little ribbon and a quick computer printout. I also used the scallop punch and curvy sayings stamp. It took me a total of 10 minutes, from inspiration to finished project! I love it when it's that easy!!!

Happy Wednesday!!

To Have and To Hold...12 years and counting

I had a long night last night as I am battling this nasty cold. So after the kids went to bed, I decided to let myself off the hook on housework and went to play. Chris and I never have had a wedding album to share with anyone. I have been wanting to complete an album like this ever since attending a SU! Christmas card swap last fall. Then I stumbled across Amy Celona's version and the rest is history. I love the idea that this takes exactly one half of a Simply Scrappin' kit. (Any time that I can make two of the same thing so I can keep one for MY PINK BASKET is a bonus for me.) I have been so afraid to put my pictures into anything because I didn't feel that my work was good enough. Not anymore. I love where I am at, what I can do and where I have left to go. And now I have a fun thing that I can share until I can do our full size (12x12) wedding album. Hmmm....wouldn't this be a fun class to do one night?? Maybe a new kit from the Fall/Winter 08 collection that is coming?

This project was completed with SU! Simply Scrappin' kit "To Have and To Hold".
The only outside embellishment was a single crystal brad from the Pretties Kit and some satin brown ribbon from Michael's dollar bin.

Hope that you enjoy! ~Babs

Today is the start of the Pink Pajamas blog. I am so excited. It will give you a special insight to what is going on in my life and what is happening in my PINK world. Thank you to all of my friends and family who are supporting me. To my mom who started my PINK, "It's all in the Pinkie".
