A Little Sunshine on a Gray Day

It is gray and raining here today so I created a layout to brighten up things around here.  It is a picture that I took while we were on vacation in Florida in January at the beach.

The Sweater

Here lies my first sweater! Except imagine if you will that along the right side a row of 10, yes 10 white buttons because I am to lazy to take another picture at this point.  I have worn it once and absolutely love it, I just need to take some pictures the next time I wear it!

This is the Buttony Sweater and the pattern can be found here.

It would have been finished in a month but I have an aversion to finishing things so it took three to complete. I really didn't want to sew on all the buttons!

I have a couple other sweaters that I am currently working on and will post pictures of those soon.

Spring is here so lets celebrate with a card!

It finally felt like Spring here today, so I thought I would share a card I made a few weeks ago. I saw a similar card on the Hero Arts Blog and loved it so I thought I would give it a try.
The window has a clear sheet covering it to act like a real window, cute and fun to make!
Have a great weekend!

A Mini Book

Another project from the class that I have been taking this week. Using a photo that I took downtown when my friend Shannon came to visit as background paper I created a mini book detailing what we did when she was here.

I added in tickets from the places we went and pictures that were taken while she was here. It was a really simple project to complete and I love the result.
I will definitely use this concept again to make another mini book.

And it was all yellow....

1. See the light, 2. Petit pan de mur jaune / Little patch of yellow wall, 3. Hello Yellow!, 4. yellow with ring, 5. it's no fun to be yellow., 6. Liberty at sunset (yellow!), 7. it was all yellow, 8. Yellow Dahlia Centre (20070731-161034-PJG), 9. Splendor in yellow...

I have been in love with the color yellow lately and I am not sure why. Maybe it is because it has been winter for what seems like forever. I found these photos on flickr that I am in love with right now.

A Layout

I started taking an on-line class this week from this girl, and I already love it! Today I made this layout using the ideas from class about creating your own patterned paper. So fun! I can't wait to see what is next in this class.

So I Started a Blog!

Just wanted a place to share projects that I have made and things I have done.

More to come soon!
