Bed Head!

Apple of My Eye!

8x8 Page Layouts

I thoroughly enjoy scrapbooking the smaller pages. You can create a page that tells the whole story without having to paste 4-6 pictures on it. Each week I will feature two new 8x8 layouts I have created for ideas. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

A Stylish Matter!

I created this stylish little calendar
for my wonderful hair lady to display
at her station to assist her in scheduling
her appointments. She always wears a
leopard print apron so I found this
pattern paper to be appropriate for
the background of her calendar.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I will be handing out these cute little Valentine's Day treat bags I made for my friends filled with homemade cookies.
What a great way to spread a little Valentine's Day cheer with the ones I love!

I love you to "peices"!

Here is an idea for that someone in your life you love to "peices". I have covered a Reese's Peices box with some scrap Valentine's Day paper I had and embellished it with ribbon, a heart cut from the Cricut Cartridge (Doodlecharms) and candy dies from Cottage Cutz (Bon Bon).

I "Woof" You!

I made this card for my valentine using the Cottage Cutz Dog die.
