A relaxing Sunday afternoon---AHHHHHHHH!!!!

Thursday afternoon I received my first Bad Girls Kit -- talk about total WOW! There was so much goodness inside that I had to start playing on Friday evening. I created 4 -- YEP FOUR-- pages on Friday night. Can't wait to show them to you. Until then I thought I would share a few pages that I made a few weeks ago.

On all three of my layouts I folded and scrunched my patterned paper to create dimension. Both are great techniques -- and they are free. A leaf is a lovely embellishments but it can be even better if you fold and bend it before adhering it to your page. Cluster several leaves and flowers together, as I did in my first layout, and you have a lovely dimensional embellishment. For tips on how I created the shadow box (on the third layout) just scroll down and you will find the directions I gave a few weeks ago. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for leaving me a message and letting me know that you stoped by to say hello. It means the world to me. I really do hope that you have a spectacular week -- HUGS!

My sweetie turned 40!!!!

We had a big party at our home last weekend to celebrate my hubby's 40th birthday. We drank, we danced and we laughed with friends. It was a very memorable "ADULTs ONLY" party. Everyone left their kids at home and it was so nice to be grown-up for just a few hours. I think we may have to have grown-up parties more often.

My sweetie bought me a camera!!!!!!!

I have been begging for a new camera -- and he surprised me this past weekend with a CANON 20D. This a great camera for me to start learning the basics of photography and I am so thrilled. So far it has been so much fun. Below are a few shots that I have taken the last few days.

I am such a "baby" at this -- so if you have any suggestions, great websites, or general tips, let me know. I am all ears.
