Prima Doll Pocket Letter Swap

At Embrace Our Art, I hosted a Prima Doll Pocket Letter Swap.  Julie Nutting Prima Dolls are like Lay's potato chips, you can't just do one.  I made three cooking theme pocket letters. The cooking embellishments were purchased for a recipe journal that I never started and thought, why not put them on the pocket letter and send recipes?

And here are a few extras I made.

Memory Garden

Just wanted to post my Memory Garden created for our Pink Sunday in the Fellowship Hall. My goal was to make 30, but 23 was all I could complete.  It was our Annual Breakfast sponsored by the Young Women Association at my church.  Our theme was 'It Ain't Over'. Unfortunately I didn't think of taking photos of the rest of the decorations until we broke everything down.

The Memory Garden remained on the wall.  They were done with pink 8 1/2 x 11 papers.  This idea came from my sorority when we did an entire backdrop for the dais.    The signs were done by one of our advisors Debra Colvin.  We have six Breast Cancer survivors at our church, but three have gone on to be with the Lord.

Friday Night Chat Challenges

Enjoyed tonight's Friday Night Challenge over at Embrace Your Art.  Tiare better known as Classygirl was our host and she allowed an hour for us to create instead of 30 minutes so I got a chance to take my time.  Our first challenge was to create a project with our favorite technique and use our handwriting.  I painted this on a watercolor sketch pad using acrylic paint, watercolor, masking, glitter...I don't think I have a favorite technique.

Entering in the following challenges:  
Alphabet Challenge - Pretty in Pink 
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes Family/Friendly Week #251-252
Crafters Cafe - Use lots of Pink

The 2nd challenge was a Sisterhood challenge including a quote about sisterhood. Love this Bug A Boo digital and the quote is heartwarming.

Entering in the following challenges:
MOJO Monday - Sketch 468

Fall into your Season

The first card was inspired by a song Donald Lawrence sings entitled "Seasons".  I left the link on his name if you would like to listen to it.  It will truly speak to your heart. The sketch for both cards are by Freshly Made Sketches.  Autumn is my favorite season!  I love the coolness in the air, the crisp colors and the warmness of family and friends together.
