Making Memories That are Shiny and New

I made this layout using the above sketch for the Shiny and New challenge at Paper Issues.  It is a fun one.  I used some gold papers to mount my photos.  Coll and I took a trip to Nashville over her fall break and we had such a wonderful time.  We have such fun together and just laughed and laughed.  Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the challenge.  Happy New Year

Heart Full of Love Pillow

 Next to Christmas, Valentine's Day is my most favorite holiday.  I decided to have some fun playing with twine from The Twinery.  I finger knit 7 different colors of twine together to  make the chain to form the heart.  I also used those same colors to create the tassels as well.

Samantha Walker Projects Take 2

I have been having so much fun playing with Samantha Walker cut files and my Silhouette Cameo.  This dress is so adorable and uses her paper which can be found in the store also.  Happy Birthday Files 51170 Card Simple Dress 50's large circle paper 29082 Aqua diamond paper 29085 Red Text Pattern paper 29091 samanthaleewalker.blogspot.com

I am so tickled with how this came out.  This is for a dear friend who is getting a hot chocolate set as part of her gift for Christmas.  Silhouette empty tube from stencil vinyl and etching tape Cut files: candy cane cupcake wrapper 51711 Tag 13434

Made a plate of their favorite cookies and etched the bottom of the platter which they will see once the cookies are gone.  Glass Etching File number 51550

Here is a layout using a circular layout file #6866.  I adore how cute this came out and it was really easy to work with.
 Here is a pyramid box that I made.  I love how cute this came out too, so festive #35111
 Here is a fun puzzle  #3424 of Sean and Ness from their engagement photos and a lace closed box #42006 to put it in.
