My first project is a sample of a Mother's Day card that I am sending to the mothers staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Orange County.
Stampin' Up! has partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charity and allows demonstrators to help others while sharing our love of this craft. While each home is different, my group sends in different gifts or cards for each special holiday or event. I got my color inspiration from our new Color Collection, which will begin in July 2010. If you are familiar with Stampin' Up!, you'll notice that a favorite past in color will be making its way back!

While Mother's Day is very near, a special birthday for one of my best friend (as well as a fellow Stamp Ink Diva) is also near the same time. She loves things that have frills and are antique. So, I created this with her in mind.
My personal style tends to lean more on the simple, modern, and whimsical side. But I am loving the antique elements more and more!

My final project brings us to a scrapbook page that I am making in preparation for a special photo I want to capture at my Ladies Tea.
I am planning a Ladies Tea fundraiser for my children's school and can't wait to capture all my friends dressed up and with their party hats!
