Merry Christmas Dreamers!!

   It has been a while since I had a lull in creativity, but I wanted to share my latest project with you.  I made this adorable mini-album for my newest grandchild, Evelyn.  It is her 1st Christmas and it needs to be special.  I bought this  mini paper pack and "goodies" in 2009, when I was in Denver with my good friend Patty. I love bright colors and loved that it was not "traditional" Christmas colors.  Fancy Pants   is a great paper  company, and I had to have it.  It was my 1st visit to an Archiver's store and it was fabulous!

I used Smooches paint around the edges for the bright pink and green.  Some stickles, bling glossy accents and I am very pleased with the way it turned out.  I know her mom & dad will also.  I will try to snap some pics of the finished product, since I won't have photos till next weekend.
The last couple of months have been a bit to handle..but I am not going to allow my grief to overshadow one of the most glorious holidays.....the birth of my Savior.  I'm dreamin' of a perfect keep dreamin' too.

Hello,'s a not so simple Monday!

   I have decided to showcase some of my new favorite stamp sets from the Annual Catalog. I think this one is a "sleeper".  It is ...
