PDW has a new collaberation kit out for March called  IRISH SPRING.  It's so jammed packed with goodies from the talented designers I just had to work with it.

some of the ice cream sundae!  Needless to say she was WIRED the rest of  the night!

New Avatar

I have a new Avatar, I'm so stinking proud of it.  It's really me.....I picked up Photoshop magazine and it had a tutorial in it on how to convert a photo into Aviator.  So I played with it yesterday and created one from one of my photos.  I couldn't get the eyes to look crystal clear because the original photo wasn't the best.  Next time I do one I need to make sure I get a good quality picture to work with.....

Here is the original photo and aviator side by side......kewl hah....

Wild Rooster

While on vacation in Oahu, we were able to take a tour around the island. On one of our stops we ran into some wild roosters. Well I just had to take some pictures!My dear husband asked me why in the heck I was taking pictures of roosters....I told him I thought they were gorgeous and I had to record that we had a rooster sighting in Hawaii of all places....

Flowers for Mommy

FONDNESS by Studio Rosey Posey, loved working with this kit.....

Give me wings

A new kit out by Designs by Helly called GIVE ME WINGS

This kit touched me in a special way, it made me think back to the birth of my daughter and then the years that followed.  I had to learn to give her the wings to fly, give her freedom to learn and grow.  It's so hard for us as parents to do that, but in order for them to become independent and live productive lives it's a most......My wish for you is that you have the strength to let your little ones fly.....

Cuppa Coffee

New CUPPA by Studio Rosey your coffee, want to tell us about, well here's the perfect kit to use for your background.....

My layout with Journaling:

Journaling: I went back to Germany a few years back to visit my birth country and see some relatives I hadn't seen since leaving at the age of five. One of the things we did almost everyday is visit the locale cafe to drink a cup of coffee. They always brought it to me in this elegant cup with sweets. I loved the way it made me feel so pampered. So when it was time to leave I bought a coffee cup set to bring home to remember my visit to Germany. So every once in a while I get my special cup out fix some coffee and have some special sweets to go with it. My own little taste of Germany back home.
