Max & Whiskers is a very cute pet collection.
Lots of warm colors and textures in this collection that can be used for many themes not just pets.

Cappella from Basic Grey.
Not only perfect for weddings but other formal and even casual layouts.

Soft Blues, Greys and Pinks.
Very Sophisticated but with that Basic Grey edge.

Fred lost in the neighborhood.

Rosemary was very nasty to Fred today, apparently she gets annoyed with him when he chatters. (To be honest he does talk a lot, a very lot)

So she tried to suffocate him!

He managed to run away and got lost in the neighborhood.
Luckily he managed to find a phonebooth and called me on my cell phone.

So I jumped into the car and rescued him. He keeps calling me his hero. If I could get him to stop talking I would point out that I am a Heroine not a Hero :)

You have to see this in person, it is just stunning.

Upcoming Class

Here are some photos of a class coming to the store soon.
This is a cute beach album

Perfect for Beach, Picnic, Summer or even Weddings on the Beach

Suzanne, a very sweet customer came in to the store this afternoon and gave Rosemary a little gift.

A very nice bird with her name tattooed on his breast.

Rosemary wanted to call him StinkyMcSmellyFeet but I didn't think that was a very nice name. I suggested the name Leonard.

The bird flew at me and I almost stepped on him.
Luckily I am quite nimble so a horrendous accident was averted.

Let me know if you have any good name suggestions for her to consider.
(anything is better than StinkyMcSmellyFeet)
I will let you know what Rosemary has decided to call him tomorrow.

Have got to go get some sleep, Goodnight

Fred is back

Fred came back to work today for a little while.
He still has a little bit of a headache
so he took the afternoon off and went fishing.

He managed to catch 3 fish

Sepia Memories Class & Layout

Tonight we had the Sepia Memories Wall Canvas Class and thought I would show you some of the finished projects. Aren't they fabulous. They had an easy relaxed time and have a piece of art to hang on their walls when they get home.

Here is another one.
Nobody else wanted me to take their pictures :(

I managed to get this layout done before the class using
Anna Griffin Papers and a Martha Stewart Punch.

This is my sister and her new husband.
They got married on the beach a couple of weeks ago
These papers from Anna Griffin are perfect for wedding photos

Tried to get a close up to show how dimensional the layout is
but I need to be able to use the camera better

Love those Martha Stewart Punches!!

SEI Layouts

Melina is on our Design Team and she made these absolutely stunning layouts using the Claire Collection from SEI. She used some of the new lacey ribbon we have in the store as well as some Prima Leaves

On this layout Melina used one of the Martha Stewart Corner and Border punches around the edge of the page. She also cut the flower out of the paper and shaped it. WOW!!

Melina does just fabulous work :)
