50th Wedding Anniversary

This was a team effort. My mother covered the boxes and together we designed this gift box for a dear couple. It's their 50th Wedding Anniversary and the colors are black, gold and cream.  They were extremely pleased and that made our hearts glad!


This is a close up of the topper.  I painted it gold and included a Robert Jackson digital that I colored of this cute couple.  The numbers are gold stickers.  My mother added the ribbon and tulle.
The bling is from Michaels

Altered Gift for my Crafty Friend

We had an Altered Gift swap at Scraps of Color. My partner was Mary Joyce who loves animal print and the color orange. I altered a wooden jewelry box from Michaels. This is my creation.  I pulled out some Animal print paper from Creative Memories.  It was the perfect selection.  This was so therapeutic.  I think I might get another one to play with.



Mary Joyce preferences was animal print and the color orange is her favorite.

Robert Jackson image...Card created and a beautiful set of orange flowers

The jewelry box was filled with embellishments and a Unity stamp set instead of jewelry

The black really defined it.  

Loving the hardware.

Animal print paper.  My sister loves bling!

I always have to have everything down before I get started.

It’s Been A While

Yes it’s been a while and I miss card making. On my visit to JoAnns I picked up a Die/Cutting magazine and it had this die by Tattered Lace on the back. I LOVE tea and it just happened to fall in my cart. LOL I can’t remember where I got the sentiment stamp from, but I hope the sweet Dear I’m going to send it to warms her heart.

Scrapbook Parties

I’m back in the craft room working on projects. I’ve been working on a few scrapbook parties and making interactive mini album kits! Oh what fun. My scrapbook group Creative Queen Crafters are totally awesome and supportive! Check us out with a few picture overload of all the fun. This was one of my sorority's event for Sisterhood Month.
I LOVE this group!

Rhoda came up with our groups name! She's setting up our tool area.

LaFonde definitely had her share of FUN!

Our Delta Dear Geraldine has been wanting to do a scrapbook for years!

Did I say they were engaged?  Yes, Coloring appeared to be very relaxing.

Patricia was our photographer, but she was able to scrapbook as well.

Veta is assisting and taking photos too!

Sharing the LOVE

I’ve been busy in the craft studio preparing for a Scrapbook tea that was hosted by one of my former Sunday School students and sorority sister.  Her name is La Tondra Lewis also a 20+ year Breast Cancer Survivor.  Her lovely home was filled with tea sets. I’m so proud of her gifts that she uses to support others. I’m sharing a tag I made using a Bug-A-Boo image and also reading the Scrapbook Prayer I wrote and put on my craft studio sign.



Our Young Women Association sisters had to bring 10 gifts for Pink Sunday to give to our survivors.  Being the crafty person that I am, it's just hard to purchase something at the store when I can create with a lot of LOVE.  Such great therapy!!!  The easels were on sale at Michaels for $10 packaged in 6. Everything else was in my stash.  Was that a bargain or what including my 20% off including sale prices?!  Michael's made my day!


Simply packaged with a chalk wrapped in ribbon.

NCD with Unity Stamps

My Saturday was busy, but not too busy to make three cards for National Cardmaking Day!  I had a recent purchase with Unity Stamps and below are my three creations.  The first card has lots of layers just like the fall season. I'm looking forward to the cool temperatures! The second card is one of many I am making for my Breast Cancer Survivors. The third card reflects support.  I'm so thankful for my support of friends.  Blessings to you my friend!
