Ever make a page or a card... post it online... read the comments and then learn something new about your work? That's what happened with this layout; a little something I made for Category Stories. Many of the comments I received talked about the patterns, and the dots... and how cool it was that they all matched. Totally NOT planned! then I realized how many dots were in the papers, ribbons and letters I chose for this layout... a completely happy accident!
So check it out....
Dots in the clouds, dots on the sun rays, dots in the letters, dots on the ribbon... dots, dots dots! My only "concept" with this layout was the layers; from the bottom it's sand, water, sunshine and sky... but the reason it seems to "work" is because of the dots that pull it all together!

For the "Project Catwalk" Mini Book Challenge over at SIS TV... I Baracked it up. I did a google image search for "Obama Art" to get most of the pictures. I love all the art that people are creating with Obama's image!
Just a fun layout from a random "shopping" challenge on SIS... We had to pick three items off a list to use on our layout... I sellected American Crafts Paper, Metal and Candy wrappers. I had been saving these Japanese gum wrappers for a while... I think they fit the bill.
How cute did these thank you cards turn out? My son chose the colors, and the stamp... I did the stamping, and he did all the coloring... he certainly added his touch!
I just finished a really great mini album that I am super proud of... I can't wait to show you!
I used to have a wonderful collection of puffy stickers... alligator shaped, rainbows, some neon pink hearts I'm sure. So when I saw the new Puffy line by American Crafts I was immediately taken back to the early 80's.
I just loved how easy it was to apply the AC rub-ons to the Puffy stickers. I actually could just press it in place with my fingers.
