Prima Marketing Lyric Collection - Together Layout
Prima Marketing Lyric Collection
Designed by Anita L. Mulcahey

Here is a layout that I did from our wonderful trip to Jamaica.  I adore my hubby and we had such a romantic day.  Everyone thought we were celebrating something big and kept asking us.  We were, celebrating our love and the fun that we always have together.  I love how the moon is captured in the background and the way it matches these papers so perfectly.  I don't know how long Charlie is going to be able to keep these in The Hens' Den store so I would definitely get mine while I could.  I love how the word together came out so pretty on these papers using my Silhouette.  Have a great weekend everyone.

Deep Sympathy

Prima Marketing Lyric Collection - Deep Sympathy Card
Prima Marketing Lyric Collection
Designed by Anita L. Mulcahey
I made this card the day after the Boston Marathon bombings.  I was deeply saddened by the attack on our city and the tragic loss of life including the sweet little boy Martin who died, together with all the survivors who were injured and whose lives are forever changed.  Prima's Lyric line is so elegant and classy and made the perfect setting for the sympathy card that helped me to express my grief at this horrible event.  I will be back later this month with a layout that I made using this line as well.  I just love it, the wood buttons make me swoon.  I don't know how long this line will be in the store at The Hens' Den so you better get it while you can.  We are resting a bit easier in Boston and able to enjoy the spring weather coming our way. Hugs and love to everyone.

A New Daughter Card

I have never used a photo on a card but had such fun creating this one.  My son became engaged a few weeks ago and this is my daughter-in-law to be Vanessa.  She and Sean have been together for 8 years and I am so excited for their future and to have another daughter.

This is my very last entry for the Paper Issues Up in the Clouds challenge.  I took some white fabric and cut out the clouds and then put red line adhesive along the bottom of one piece and put The Twinery rainbow colors along the bottom.  Finished with ric rac to hang and a bow with all the colors near the bottom.  You have to check out the Paper Issues site, it is so much fun.
