Princess Party!

This layout is about my darling daughter's 5th birthday party.  She was begging for a REAL princess dress like her friend Jenae's and since I was able to get it on sale at the Disney store...she got it.  I got some adorable photos to scrap!

Hidden Photos...My First Try!

This was my first attempt at hidden photos in my layout.  I used a Let's Scrap sketch to create this layout:

In the top right, you will notice a little pull out tab to show these photos:

Plus, I did these paper pieced dolphins:

I had a lot of fun with this layout.  The hidden pictures came out awesome and I will definitely try that again!

Father's Day Card

This card is for my wonderful husband, I used stitching for the circle.:

This is a Father's Day card I made for my Dad.

3 Clues Who's 2!

I'm not sure this is my best work, but I did love Joseph's reaction to it.  He was absolutely thrilled!

This is based on this Let's Scrap sketch:

It was a really hard sketch to work with, but I'm glad Joseph likes it.
