This is a page I created for my new niece Katie. Isn't she the cutest? The paper is by Creative Imaginations...I am totally addicted to this paper...if you haven't noticed! I use it on everything. I added her name and birthdate with my Adobe photoshop. The large pearl K is from the dollar bin at Michael's! I had originally bought it because my last name is Kovack. But it just worked with this page. The other patterned paper is by Daisy D's. I did sew alot on this page....the only problem is my paper started to buckle.....how the heck do ya fix that? So in person it does bow a bit in the middle...oh well!

I went to a great place for pictures today called A Bit of Charm. It is in Tinley Park, IL. These ladies spent so much time with Cortney! As most of you know Cortney has Cerebral Palsy. She had such a hard time keeping her body upright, her eyes straight and NOT showing everyone her tonsils! (Not a pretty sight!) I think I've narrowed it down to these 2. Not sure which one I like better. Please help me choose!

The cute snowmen are from Stampendous! I colored these guys in with my Copic markers. The DP is from KI Memories. I also cuttlebugged the blue paper, then sanded it. I used my sewing machine to stitch the small circular paper on to the blue embossed paper. The pink paper is by SU! The snowflake in the corner is by Quickutz. I glitzed it up by adding some glitter and a rhinestone. I had some left over sequins from my daughter's communion dress 4 years ago! So I glued them on to look like snow! I also used clear glitter on the ground...don't know who it is by cuz it was just in a little clear baggie.
Thanks for all your kind comments yesterday.....I guess we really are our own worst critics!

I made it to the 25 finalists at Carolinez Delightz and had to submit another layout using only ribbon, cardstock, and paint. I was so pleased with how this layout turned out.....and yet it only received one vote on the forum....my own. I was so sad that no one really liked it! So obviously I didn't make it to the next round! I think this was a particularly hard blow, only because I did submit my work to the Memory Makers Masters Challenge and now I am feeling like there is NO WAY I have a chance! There was a small part of me that dreamed of getting that call that I had made it....
I guess I won't quit my day job....LOL! I think I will stick to teaching...
