Oh man, do I love this picture. I remember thinking, "it doesn't get any better than this" and "remember this moment". Well, I certainly do, and it gives me a warm, soft fuzzy feeling everytime!

I think this page needs some thread..and I have vowed to get myself a sewing machine when I get my taxes back for just that reason. Wooo Hooo!

Sass Lass is speckled with OA and some ancient stuff in my stash :) TFL yall!!

ALAS! It does exist! A photo of my mom, my sister and I all together. This was at my sister's wedding outside of Austin TX a couple years back.

I love the Pink Paislee yellow graph paper here. It was part of a Studio Calico add-on kit along with the mini rose ribbon and yellow Sass blossom. Various bits and pieces from three different kits now that I look at it!
Love, Elsie buttons are just too cute, don't you wish she was still around? :(

This is a picture I have used in the past for LOs. Hope that's not taboo, but I just love it. And we ARE big-time cuddle monsters :)

Thanks to Sassafrass Lass for the remnants (strips) of stickers...no idea what the name of the product was, but it doesn't matter - order anything from them, you won't be sorry!

Good Stuff is written in Pink Paislee alphas, and framed with white cs punched with an Around the Page Punch by Martha Stewart in double scallop (?)

Butterfly stamps are Clear Stamps from Jillibean Soup. Pink Pearls are by Kaisercraft and were a bonus from A Cherry On Top. Thanks!

Used a Copic for coloring some of the circles in the wings.

Oh! Duh...almost forgot! I snagged the design from Patty over at The Story Matters - it was her donation to Page Maps this week. Go check 'em both out - really great work!

Thanks for being here!

Yeah! I went there! Again! :)

More fun stuff on my friend and co-team member at Paper Issues (check them out now - you can link up your own LOs and projects!) That pic was too cute not to scrap, Gurl! You too Dave! :)

Look at little dude rockin' out - aint he something! :) That is a Gama-Go sticker I purchased at a local card store. I found them online once too, so do a web search for Gama-Go stickers and you should be able to find them.

Thanks to Sassafras Lass for the fun journal tags, flag banners and cute apple corner. They really are my favorite company, and I am breakin' em out for you Herns!

How can you NOT love those glittered American Crafts Thickers? I mean...they scream DISCO!

Thanks for being here! :)

*insert sheepish smile here*
Hi Herneeeey! Everyone, this is Michelle. Michelle this is everyone.
Okay so maybe only a person or two :)
This LO had me chuckling for an hour when it came to me. Ya see...there is Herny (that's what I call Michelle Hernandez (http://www.myanaloglife.blogspot.com/) and then there is ol' Albert. Above them is the typewritten message "you're old school and cool" and I made it seem like I was talking about Einstein by adding "you too Herny".....ahahahaha!! See what I did there? :)

Woooo...that was fun. :)))))

You know I love you , Herns!

Up on the left top - that stuff that looks kinda like a small banner is the "punch" left over from my Around the Page Punch (crown) by Martha.  Now that is using your scraps! 

The circles are punched from vintage fabric pattern and then distressed with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger.

Maya Mist added the spritz and spray and splatter (otherwise known as FUN!) and American Crafts Thickers provided the punch line. :)  *corny drum roll*  Bah Dum Bum!

I like how the back of the Sassafras Lass scalloped edge says "Life Is Beautiful"

Oh and that great typewriter (which you can leave the sentiment off if you like) is Hero Arts Cling Stamp "My Type"

Thanks yall!  Especially you Herny, my new friend.

YAY!!  My first out for pub!!  YAY!!

 
Hi y'all! Here is a happy page to start the new year about my adoration for my vehicle. I love my Honda Odyssey to bits! Of course, being a caterer, this car has obvious advantages but I love to drive it as well. If you are thinking about getting one - don't hesitate! :)

Those punch around the page punches from Martha (go 'head, girl!) Stewart are addictive and a splurge I treated myself to :)  I used My Little Shoebox and October Afternoon papers with Sass Lass Paper Whimsie (the black card with arrows) and We R memory Keepers title. Those dang VW vans on the paper are uh-DOR-uh-ble!

Thanks for being here :)
