"Happy Day" and an Announcement!


I am so thrilled to announce that I am now an official member of Stampers Dream's DREAM TEAM! I was so humbled and honored when Michelle asked me to join her design team. Have you seen what these ladies can do? Click on over to check them out! I'm still pinching myself!

I wanted to get started right away on my first SD project! I created a card using this adorable Darling Marci cling stamp. I colored her up with my Copic markers, cut her out, paper pieced her dress and popped her onto a layered scallop circle I cut out using my Nestabilities. I tied on some really pretty Brown Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon by May Arts, added some Brown Burlap String and popped on a gorgeous Prima rose. The paper collection I used is the Portrait Collection by Crate Paper. LOVE this paper collection!!

Here are some pics...

hugsies!

Hi Arlene! I am one of your new 'follower's...I found you by accident on You Tube and I'm hooked! You have inspired me to be WAY more detail oriented, I run your videos in the background while I'm scrapping for a steady stream of inspiration. Also, I went to my local Michael's (in Tracy) to find those little boxes that you had altered and bought every one that I could find. Score...they were on clearance for FORTY NINE CENTS! Yessss!!!! Anyway, thanks so much, I was suffering from Scrappers Block and now...not so much.

Can't wait for the Expo...you're going right???
