I am really excited to be working on my very FIRST acrylic album (thanks Sonia)!!!!! This is the cover page of the album and just a sneak peak of what's to come.

Over at the BBTB this week, our challenge was to create something using the ACCENT 43 of the Accents Essential Cricut Cart. Originally I wanted to make the entire background paper using these swirls but since I am working on this acrylic album, I needed to change it a bit. Make sure to visit the BBTB for some really cool projects. These girls are just amazing and I am proud to be on such a great team.

PAPER is all from SEI - Orchid Collection
Brad: SEI - Orchid Collection
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
*Accents Essential Cart (pg. 74) for the swirls
*Alphalicious - for the "10"
*Opposites Attract - for the "GREAT years"
*Flowers: George and Walk in My Garden Carts
*Black Felt Flower and the White felt flower - cut from Sizzix dies (White: Flower, Daisy #2 and Black: Flower, Daisies #2)
*Rub Ons: Basic Grey
*Stickles: Eucalyptus (for the "10") and Waterfall (for the "years")

And you guessed right.....all of my products (*) are from HALLMARK SCRAPBOOK!!!!! They have the most amazing scrapbook supplies.

Once I finish the entire album, I will post the entire thing over on the HALLMARK SCARPBOOK PHOTO GALLERY.

Thanks for visiting my site.

This card I made for a very special friend of mine. Somehow - I always send her the ice cream cards - must be because she is just VEEY SWEET!!!

I made this card for the BBTB challenge this week. Make sure to visit that site to see some really amazing creations. I sooooo love being part of this design team - it really makes my creative juices flow :o)

I used the Doodlecharm cart for this cut, Sizzix die for the hearts and for the sticks I used the Cuttlebug Distressed Stipes embossing folder. Of course I purchased all the items over at HALLMARK SCRAPBOOK where I get all my scrapbooking supplies.

Hugs to all,
