A past project...

I was just looking through some of my past posts and I realized I forgot to post an altered piece that I created way back in May! I turned a double frame into a cute quote piece for my daughter's teacher on the last day of school. It was the first time I'd ever altered something and I was THRILLED with the way it turned out!

Here's the finished product:

I think it turned out really cute and Ms. Joy cried when my daughter gave it to her. :) I think I'm going to stock up on frames like this to use as end-of-the-year gifts for future teachers. Or just to make something cute for myself. :)

Now I'm in the Gold Club...AND the "52" club!!

Holy cow! I have completed a YEAR'S worth of scrapbook layouts! I can hardly believe it!! Without the fabulous mind and talent of Kristy from Scrapbooksteals.com, I would have 52 less layouts done and I will be forever grateful!

Alright, enough of the sappiness. :) Let's get to some layouts!! Here are my Gold Club layouts and my +2 to round out the year! (See the sketches for these layouts at here.)

Have some Authentique!

Since I've created a couple projects using papers from Authentique, a brand-spanking new paper company, I thought I would post my creations. I used papers from their Uncommon line for both projects and I'm in LOVE with the way they turned out!

Here is the card I created to give my hubby for our 9th anniversary tomorrow:

Here is the layout I created:

And here is a close-up of the journaling on the hidden tag:

I can't wait to get my hands on more of Authentique's collections and create more beautiful projects with them!

Until next time...
