Butterfly Kisses

I would like to share my Design Team post for Scraps of Color Espire with you.  I altered a large paper mache mail box from Hobby Lobby.  My soror Vanecia Kimbrow was in mind after sharing an amazing testimony of Living with Lupus featured in Southern Soul magazine - October 2014 edition.  She's a vibrant young lady and busy as a bee,  although she evolves like a butterfly.  That was the inspiration behind the mailbox. Of course purple is the color ribbon for Lupus. Maybe she'll put all of her happy mail in it while she continues to be encouraged and "Keep it Moving".

Recipe Ingredients:
Die Cut with a View - Floral Foliage stack
Deco Art Regal Purple - acrylic paint
QuicKutz - Butterfly Die cut
Martha Stewart - Butterfly punches
Fiskars - paper trimmer
Hancock Fabrics lace
Michael's- feathers
Prima - bling
Spare Part - Flowers
Recollections - Purple shimmer mist, Orchid stickles, flowers

Love you Vanecia!

PJ Loves to Play

I am so enjoying my nephew and creating layouts for his album.  This is Patrick Junior at seven months.  Oh  how they grow up.  I'm using C'est Magnifique October sketch for this layout.  I wanted to use a masculine approach on this layout using a little distressing, and fun templates with modeling paste and mists.  I used Fiskars crimper tool on the upper left side to give a little texture to the paper.  See sketch below.

Pink Sunday

Just wanted to make a quick post and share the gift bags I made for our six Breast Cancer Survivors at church today.  We had a high time praising God for his goodness and mercy.  I finally finished Me and My Big Ideas Mambi paper pad I've had for at least 3 years!  Julie Nutting Doll Taylor was used on each bag.  I changed her hair up on a few.

Sunshine Mail & the Winner of SOC Blog Hop

Sunshine Mail coming to some sweet girls at the foundation.  This is 'Stephanie Brings Surprises'.  I printed nine images and they all have different colored outfits.  It's so easy to send several in one large envelope. You don't need individual envelopes.  The foundation hand delivers them.  They prefer that you not send get well, birthday, religious or holiday.  No loose glitter or confetti.  Make sure you sign the inside with your first name and state. How sweet is that?!  My design is by Card Map.  I needed something quick and easy.

Scraps of Color Blog Hop

It's here and I'm thrilled with excitement to be apart of such a great Sistahood with a couple of gents!  It wasn't hard to determine what I would share this month since I've been 'counting down'.  I joined SOC in 2009 and have had the pleasure to meet so many wonderful Sistahs in person.  To countdown the event I thought I would (you guessed it) alter a cookie sheet to a magnetic calendar. Attached to the clip on the bottom right is a card I made during FNC (Friday Night Challenge).  FNC is how I got to meet so many amazing sistahs.  Gotta LOVE this place...We Celebrate Life!
