I became and admin on the Team, so we have been busy recuruting new members, doing some clean up etc! You would be amazed at all the hard work that goes into managing a team on Etsy! Lucky for me the two other Admins Vanessa and Denise rock! We have been busy little bees implementing new ideas etc!
So sorry to abandon you all! LOL I have been blogging on the team blog as of late! I will try to spread my time more evenly in the future! Hmmmm its time to get a winter look going for my blog I think!
I am off to update the look!

This was really fun to make and I think it came together well! I hope you all like it also!
This what the cover looks like, which to me was the most time consuming but it came out cute! It is made from a pink cloth that has been hand stitched around the edges with a silver thread. Then I stamped the cute little girl outfit on two layers of card stock and hand water colored it. I cut out the words on my cricut. I think it looks pretty good!
The album is made from white paper bags, which I think works well. Using the paper bags gives you the opportunity to store other pictures or mementos in some of the pages! Above is what the first page of the album looks like. It has an embossed swirl background and it has been accent with lots of girly embellishments!
The album is a little bigger than other paper bag albums that I have seen, this one measures 6x6" and generally the area for you to place your photos or journaling are 4.5"
The album focuses on a year in the life of your little girl. I did pages reflecting the major events and holidays in a year! The above pages are for that special Birthday!
The above page is for Bunny day with it's bright fun colors and all of springs little friends!
Above pages reflect my favorite Holiday of the year!! I love Halloween, lol maybe because I missed being born on that day by hours! Plus I love the idea that you can be anything that you want to be on that day!
What year wouldn't be complete with out some cheery Christmas pages!?!? I didn't totally stay with the traditional colors...lol I find the traditional colors get boring after awhile! Plus I loved the ornament paper I have!
The last page of the album is to honor daddy's little girl! Love all the pastel colors on this page! Hheheh I would love to keep this one, but no little girls here!! All boys and no plans for any more!!

Here is what she looks like so far!
This is the cover of the album, the background is a cute pink fabric. Its accented with a cute little girls outfit stamp.
This is the first page, it has a space for a photo and some room for journaling. Its been accented with ribbon, paper flowers, and some stickles.
This is the third page, it has a space for a photo, and has a cute little elephant with a sweet pink bow.
These next two pages are my fav so far. LOL maybe cuz of all the purple....which is after all my favorite color! These pages are the birthday pages. The back ground of the page has been embossed with different versions of Happy Birthday. There are spaces for two photos and the pages have been embellished with some cute birthday kitties!
Well this is all I have so far. I hope to finish it this weekend. The show is fast approaching! The remaining pages are going to have Easter, Halloween and Christmas.
I hope you enjoy a little peek in to my shop!

Well I guess drawing and painting is like a bicycle, you just never forget. I was at M's the other day browsing for paper and stamps for my card shop. Some how I wandered down the aisle with all of the canvases. I tend to "wander" a lot in that store..hehehehe
I thought to myself...hmmmmmmm wonder if I can still paint. I painted a lot when I was younger, I just haven't done it in about 8 years or so. LOL I forgot how much I enjoyed doing it. Not to mention the jaw dropping of my 12 year old. He was completely amazed that I could paint a scene from Beauty and the Beast. LOL mom actually made him go WOW...which we all know is hard to do when the have reached the pre-teen stage of life!
Hmmm now what should I paint next...I have one more 12 x 12 canvas..hehehehehe
