Need a Great Photographer?

If you find yourself in need of a Great Photographer, and you live in the Washington, D.C. Metro area, give my cousin Inhar Chong a chance.  Check out her website on my sidebar.  She takes beautiful Art Gallery quality pictures.  I'm going to try to book her for a much needed family photo.

I created this layout for a contest on Page Maps.  This is my youngest, Damian, he has the best facial expressions (when he is happy).  I used White Out Collection from We R Memory Keepers.  Thanks for looking.

I'm in a monthly card kit swap on SCS.  Every month you receive a kit that has 6 stamped images (all identical) and 6 pieces of pattern paper (also identical), and then you have to make 6 cards and send them to others in your group.  This month Diane sent this "Bella" image and blue paper with brown polka dots.  Here's what I came up with.

I made this cupcake with a washcloth.  You roll it as small as you can and secure with a rubber band.  I put a strip of paper 1 1/2 inches wide and 11 inches long through the paper crimper and wrapped it around the bottom of the washcloth.  The heart on top is glycerin soap (melt and pour), I stuck a toothpick through the bottom of the soap and then stuck the toothpick in the center of my cupcake to keep it in place.

I was in my crafting room yesterday and I decided to make some birthday cards. They are always nice to have on hand. Thanks for looking.

I thought this year I would work on Christmas all year long (or at least until Thanksgiving). I remember growing up how exciting Christmas was for my sister and I. I think we opened presents nonstop for more than an hour. That was mostly because my parents bought Christmas presents all year long. I hope to do the same for my boys. So, to get a head start I joined the Christmas Card Challenge on SCS. I committed to 5 cards a month. This is what my January card looks like. I used the SCS card sketch #260 for my inspiration. Thanks for looking!
