Beach Therapy

I finally finished one of 5 pocket mini albums for the bridesmaid's gifts. I mentioned the destination wedding in my last post - or was it the one before?
Here are a few photos - paper line and most of the embellishments I used are by Bo Bunny "Beach Therapy"

The cover:

I still have to cut out each bridesmaid's name using my Cricut machine and the name will go in the upper right corner of the cover. The starfish and seashells are from Michael's.

Inside front cover.

I made a waterfall folio on this page.

 The frames are from another paper line by Simple Stories.

 These cute little flowers and palm trees are from Recollections.

 You can use the tags to either journal or add photos.

 The flip flops are also from Recollections

This was the 2nd sample book I made as the bride wasn't crazy over my 'shabby chic' style with the first. Oh well, you live and learn, right?!
That's it from me - I hope you are enjoying this beautiful, warm and sunny Sunday! Have a good week ahead.

It's a Boy!

Good morning to you all!
Nothing to share with you today in the way of paper crafts. I'm still working on pocket mini albums for the future bride who had asked me to make them for her bridesmaids. I've worked on nothing else and of course I hit a mental creative block! Of all times, right?!

I will share with you a picture of my DIL announcing the sex of my future grandchild~

IT'S A BOY! And we are all so excited! They also told me they are going to name him after my late son Brad and her brother Chris who is in the Marines. Bradley Christopher...such a beautiful tribute.
And of course I have already bought him his first Chicago Blackhawks bib, socks, and onesies!

That is it from me - enjoy your week ahead!

Easter Bunnies

Hi there! I have not been on here in a few weeks as I've been so busy with life! But I do want to share a few bunnies I decorated for Easter last Sunday.
I was visiting a few of my favorite blogs and came across this idea. I googled bunny images, saved them to my computer so I could size them, then printed and traced them onto chipboard and decorated them.

I used papers from Graphic 45 Secret Garden along with the chipboard tags. Ribbons, twine, flowers and buttons are from my stash.

They make a really sweet table decoration. I had them standing in a tray lined with "grass" - you know the kind you fill Easter baskets with? Along with some decorative Easter eggs - turned out really cute. But I never took a picture of it!
This coming Wednesday we find out the sex of my future grandbaby! I'm so excited!
Have a wonderful week ahead~
