Don't you love the end of the week? I do! Ryan starts T-ball tomorrow. It's his first time playing. I can't wait to see him in his little uniform. He's so excited. He doesn't want us to call it T-ball, though, he wants it to be BASEball. ;) Kids.
Here is my project for Emma's for this week. I have been having so much fun with my Pink Paislee goodies. This card and box set were made with the Fascinating line. I adore the colors!! The card is based on a sketch by my sweet friend, Melissa Phillips. Head over to the Emma's blog to see the sketch and the cool projects everyone made with it.
I should add that the clear box is the box that the chipboard came in. I thought it would be the perfect size to tuck in some goodies!
This next card is one that I did using the new Webster's Pages line, 'A Sweet Life". I love the bird and I love those berries!
The stamps are Papertrey Ink. I think this sentiment is one of my new favorites. I have a feeling it will get a lot of use. (It's from Damask Designs.)
Lisa Pace is hosting another one of her awesome classes. You have to check it out at her BLOG. Her projects NEVER disappoint. I haven't had time to start on them yet, but I'm hoping to next week. Check it out!
Finally, I want to let you know about a class that Tania Willis is teaching. Tania suddenly and tragically lost her mother in 2007. She found that perserving her mother's memory through scrapbooking has been a big part of her healing process. She's decided to share her experience through a class (see below). When I lost my dad, scrapping about him helped me. So, I wanted to share this with you.
In Loving Memory by Tania Willis
April 9 - May 7
During this 5-week course (one session per week) Tania will help spur you on to create an album dedicated to a loved one you have lost, all the while encouraging you to be gentle on yourself through the process. She will provide prompts and challenges to help you get your thoughts in order and onto the page, as well as suggestions for selecting photos and how to overcome the dilema of not having many photos at all. In addition, page sketches will be offered and a variety of embellishment techniques will be taught along the way. There's no better way than to complete a treasured project than in the company of a supportive teacher who is on her own journey of remembrance after losing her mom very suddenly and unexpectedly the summer of 2007. “It’s scrapbooking as a healing therapy, not just art.”
That's all for today. Hope you have a wonderful Friday!
