Another Digital Page

I did another one! I'm kind of having fun with this! I actually made this one for a contest. It was fitting because the contest was to make a page with the title-I love your smile. And, here I have all these wonderful new pictures of my sister from our photo shoot last Sunday! How awesome is that?! So, I made a page about her! Very exciting! Let me know what you think of this one. I put a little more time into this one but I think it's a little better then my first attempt.

Supplies: Alpha-Marie Stones, free digital scrapbooking, Font-Lucida calligraphy, Flowers-Sande Krieger, Striped pp and border-Katie Pertiet, Dotted and Vine pp-Crystal Wilkerson, Journal spot-Jessica Sprague, and Black frame-Katie Pertiet.

Cards I Made

These are some cards I made for my sister. She asked me to make cards for the senior cheerleaders at her school. She is a junior this year and I guess the underclassmen always do something for the senior girls. I was honored to do this for her and her friends. I am excited that she asked me to do it and I want to say-Thanks Christian for thinking of me and thinking my stuff is cool enough! Anyway, she liked them, I like them, and I hope the girls like them!

Sharing with you today

This is what I made for Denny for our anniversary last month. It is actually a 6x12 LO page. I have never made one in this size. It was a lot of fun and pretty easy because I didn't have as much space to fill. That was partly why I did it that way. I was a little behind making this and trying to get it done for our anniversary, so I decided to try the smaller size and see how it went. Well, I like it and I think it turned out pretty cool! He liked it too and that's what matters to me the most! : ) Not sure about storing it yet. They make sleeves for pages this size, but I think I will just slip this one into a regular 12x12 and call it good. Thanks for peeking at this and leaving me your opinion!

Misc. cardstock, AC pp, MM journal pp, Colorbok journal spots, Prima pearls, Cats Eye inks, Zig pen, HP photo paper, Daisy D rub on tape, Tombow adhesive, texture and frame on photo digitally done.

Inspiration Friday

Let's check out some inspiration today. I haven't done this in awhile and it sounds kind of fun. Plus, I have found a few things lately that I am loving!

Cathy Zielske is designing digital templates and other things!!! Love this! I am not a big digi scrapper, but I am a big fan of her. Glad to see her out there with some new products and ideas. Check it out: or

I found this site through another site the other day. Can't remember how I got to it, but I am glad I did. It is for kids I guess, but I think it is kind of fun! Who doesn't like a little coloring break in their day?

These products! I took a class from Hambly at Scrapfest last month and wow! I've always liked their stuff but never had a chance to work with it! Well, it is wonderful and I think I have found a new love!

Well, I think that is the inspiration for today! Let me know if you come across anything that you think is awesome and think I should check it out.

IKEA and me

One thing I didn't write about from our vacation was our stop at IKEA. The IKEA store is right next to the mall in Minneapolis. We went there Sat. morning before we left to come home. All I can say is OMG! This store is heaven! A heaven full of a lot of annoying people, but still heaven! LOL! That place was packed and we were there shortly after they opened. Maybe that was the problem. Anyway... Not sure if any of you have been to IKEA, or even heard of it. They are a furniture/home decor store. Their stuff is pretty good quality and cheap! I mean, hello, are you kidding me?, cheap! I've seen their stuff online and I've seen pics of stuff that other people have bought there. But, you don't get the full realm of what they have until you actually walk through their store! I was in love! I saw so much stuff that I liked and wished I had, could have, or will have! We found shelves that we want out in our pool room. I also found some shelving I'd like to have for scrap storage. And, they show whole room set-ups and I saw a kitchen that I am in love with!! Oh, dreaming I know! I sure wish they had stores in smaller cities. Like Waterloo or Rochester! That would be cool! Thankfully they have a website to order from.
Just to let you know-if you ever decide to visit IKEA-wear comfortable walking shoes, be prepared for a lot of people, and give yourself A LOT of time! Believe me!
Here's their web if you want to check it out:
