Mini Layout

Check out this 6x6 layout I did for the Caribbean Cruise Album. Each consultant takes a photo when we meet at the opening reception and we add it to our layout that then goes to the founder Jeannette. What a great little gift to show our thanks!

This is created using the Surf's Up paper pack, and some glitz glitter gel.

Use Your Stash Blog Hop - March Something old w something new

If you are joining us for the "Use Your Stash Blog Hop" in March you are right on track. This month we are showcasing Something New with Something Old. So WELCOME! You should be coming from Joy's Blog. There are 5 participants this month. If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on below.
  1. Shirley Ross -
  2. Judy Faye Garner -
  3. Cherri Hardcastle -
  4. Janet McCormick -
  5. Wendy Kessler -
  6. Joy McHargue-
  7. Rachel Ventura -

Let's get started. I created this layout using the new Buzz & Bumble paper pack. I even added the new Stickease that coordinate.
I then added several old paradise flowers, paper flowers, and even a dangling Sonoma Charm to match. The brads are all older brad colors.
I had created these little flower coin wallets (cut from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge) a while back and since they were hexagon I added them to this bee layout.
I added glitz gel to embellish them. I plan to insert pictures on the inside.
Now hop on over to Shirley's Blog for more ideas of using up your stash. Don't forget to leave a comment :) Have a great day and Happy Scrappin'

Dr Seuss Birthday!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss. Born on March 2, 1904. In honor of his birthday and the girl's love of the Lorax, I want to share a gift I made for them. The girls had asked for a truffala tree seed from Santa Clause. I did a little research and found the tickle me plant produces a little pink ball that one could pass off as a tiny truffala tree. So Santa got the girls a greenhouse set. Here is the label I created:

After about a month this is what we have so far
 The girls love spraying the plants each day with water.
Eventually they will look like this
