Follow your Dreams!

Today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!! The theme is FLOWERS. I used the Anniversary Set, so if you haven't received yours yet and don't want to see it, Don't open this post.

I was inspired to use orange after visiting The Spa at La Costa in San Diego. My brother treated my SIL, Mom, and myself to a girls day out. We had a wonderful time. Look at these gorgeous flowers.

I used the new Botanical Silhouettes set for my flowers and the new Garden Variety Die for my large flower pot. I did cut maybe a 1/4 of a inch off the bottom. Love the way it looks.

You can see I used the linen impression plate on the pot in the picture below.

Happy Hopping Everyone!

supplies used:
stamps: PTI Botanical Silhouettes, Fillable Frames #3
paper: PTI Stampers Select White; orange stripe is digi paper (can't remember)
ink: PTI Orange Zest, Spring Moss; Memento Rich Cocoa
other: PTI Garden Variety Die, linen impression plate, twine; pop dots

Class of 2011

When you have a graduate, the graduate usually has lots of friends that are graduating too!!! I needed a card I could mass produce easily for the invitations that are still arriving in the mail.

The base of the card is some subway art that I created. I put each grad's full name in the center and the date of their graduation below. The graduation cap is a svg file I purchased from Sure Cuts a Lot. I tried to match the tassel to the school colors.I really like the way they turned out!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Hi Everyone!! I've been missing in action since our cruise. Life has been absolutely crazy. On return from a fabulous cruise, I "was rockin" for another week. Suffice to say that the waves in my office were larger than on the ship. 

I then had to go into overdrive to prepare for my youngest son's High School Graduation which was Friday nite. But to make things exciting I had to have an unplanned root canal on Tuesday and then another one on Thursday.

The only crafty thing I have pictures of is the wonderfully fun Candy Bar that I created for the Graduation Reception.

What do you think about the vellum streamers?

The all-night party was a blast but I'm still recovering. Pain meds help. :)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!
