Life in my Dinghy!

Hi bloggers! I was so honored when Lisa Pace asked me to create a special project for "My Life in a Dinghy"
 Our dinghies were to be made from a TP roll and Lisa supplied a template. We were also to stay true to our style and tell the story of 
"My Life in a Dinghy. 

 Traveling across the sea in my dinghy of curiosities...with my scarf blowing in the wind...oh the fun I will have.

I set sail in my dinghy full of wishes to discover new adventures and dreams of endless curiosities of my imagination.

When I discover what I'm looking for, I go ashore on the gleaming sand and realize the adventure has just began......

Head over to  Lisa Pace's blog for "My Life in a Dinghy". You will see what fabulous "Dinghy's" Lisa Pace, Candy Rosenberg, Ronda Palazzari, Donna Salazar, Hels Sheridan, Suze Weinberg, Stephenie Hamen, Tammy Tutterow and Paula Cheney have created. And all from a Toilet Paper too! 

Thanks for stopping in!

Stamptember at Simon Says Stamps

Hello! I'm so excited to be over on the 
Simon Says Stamp blog today to help celebrate 
You know how I love stamping!

Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 11 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember® event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media, life documenting, art journaling, and many forms of altering and expressing art.

My project today is all about the new Tim Holtz "STAMP" and Framelit dies. Check out Tim's video here from CraftTestDummies. 

Head over to the SimonSaysStamp blog to see how this card was created. 

Thanks for stopping in!
