Re-created a Pinterest pin, finally!

OOO...I am getting so excited for my Open House next week Saturday, August 2nd!  I hope everyone has an opportunity just to stop by!  

A friend asked for help with an anniversary gift for her husband, they were celebrating 5 years. The traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is paper...so of course I said I could help!  I'm trying not to just be "a pinner" on Pinterest, but actually re-create some of those things I absolutely fall in love with

Here's what we created!

It is a black shadow box, black cardstock for the background, and we punched out words from the dictionary that she felt described their marriage and them as a couple. We made 2, one for her anniversary, the other for wedding gift. The background we used for the Wedding gift was Lagoon...very similar to her wedding colors!

Enjoy Today Layout

I had such a great time at Convention in Disneyland this summer...and was so lucky that Brian and I were able to make a greater vacation out of it.  I have been going through TONS of pictures and get ready to scrapbook the experience. Before I start on that though, I felt I should REALLY finish the projects we had the opportunity to create during the Creative Sessions at convention. Here's a sneak peak at some of the new colors and My Acrylix stamp sets that will be available in the new Annual Inspirations catalog.

I held an Open Crop on Friday evening and finished this cute and simple layout:


Obviously I still have to add my photos...I'm just trying to decide which ones!

The background paper is White Daisy & the images (circles and hearts) are actually STAMPED! from the new My Acrylix Glitter Glam (B1465) stamp set.
