I am excited to announce.....

Starting in September I will be offering the service of customized silhouettes......

With a picture that you send me of a person, animal or even place I will make it into a silhouette....

Aren't you excited?

We have a visitor every year .... toady the frog!

He hides under our slide and when Jesse finds him he is so excited! That poor little frog gets placed every where, we have to keep close watch! One day Jesse placed him in the compartment under his riding toy! So precious that he thinks he can play.. such innocence... I just want to hold on to these simple days.

The file is now in the store to purchase!

The TOGETHER file is now in the store...thank you!

Scrapbooking is such a unique form of art, craft or hobby. I like to see it as a new form of art, it brings out the creativity in all of us. Most of all it helps us to build relationships, it brings us together and within those relationships some times we are inspired!
Just think, scrapbooking brings us out of our homes to shop, share and invite others to see our work. How many times do you think I need stop and take a picture of that special moment? That moment becomes a treasure whether it's with a friend who just visited or watching your children play, maybe it's going out to a special place with family or taking a class with a celebrity. We want to remember the moments we spent together.

When Elsie Flannigan came to visit our local scrapbook store I was so excited, I signed up for my first class! I wanted to ask her so many questions and learn from such an artistic girl! Of course I didn't get to ask as much as I wanted, just being next to her was an inspiration for me!
I knew deep down inside I had much to share, like she does and the excitement of that visit inspired me to keep finding my place to share.

That was a special " together " moment that I will always treasure one of my inspiration moments! And to inspire you!!! I'm giving away my "together" file today..... so for the next twenty four hours you can download the file for free here.

Hope you will enjoy!
