My 1st toilet paper roll mini

Here's a project I've been wanting to play around with for a while and it only took about an hour to complete.  This is my first attempt and I love how it turned out using the cute Little Yellow bicycle pp and embellies.  The ribbon and fiber is from my stash.

Looking forward to making my next one, which will be distressed using lots of techniques.  Stay tuned!

The paper is actually like a match cover so you insert photos.

So much to be THANKFUL for!

Everyday is a day of Thanksgiving!  I give Praise to GOD for life and I don’t take it lightly.  I’m trying to work on procrastination, because every second counts. Everyone is asking me what I want for Christmas.  I already have it! ...Food, clothes, shelter, good health, my talents, and my family & friends who love me.  Speaking of friends, this is the card I made for Scraps of Color Friday nite chat challenge.  The sentiment reads:  “Like the flowers and the bee great friends are we”.

Used chalk pencils

Here's a close up of the 3D effect on the daisy and bee.
Hope you can see the sparkly fluff

I Love Making 'Mini' Memories

Someone has an obsession with mini albums.  I admit I really do LOVE to make them so I created a layout of my collection on my shelf. 

Below are over 50 paperbag mini albums I put together for The Sharin & Carin' Breast Cancer survivors to make memories of their families as well as their journey.  What lovely ladies...They inspire me and each year I look forward to memory making with them.

My scrappy friend Mika sent me these minis except for the small 7 gypsies mini which was sent by my scrappy friend Sharon.  Can't wait to create!  They make great gifts so I believe I'll be making a few for Christmas!
