I love them, i love them not... And a RAK

eyelets are a little like that. they can make a very cute effect, but i gave them up in favor of my kids sleeping. Tbe pounding was killing me. But then came the cropodile. and really - why am i not using eyelets again? because there is no noise. and the things you can do with eyelets are so fun!

this month, Use Your Stash is challenging you to use some of those little guys again. And here's a little inspiration for you...

I will RAK someone some fun embellies shown here in my samples if you do a project, send it in to UseYour Stash, and link me up here. How fun is that!!!

2nd Is The Best

I don't think i ever posted this one, and looking at it now, i really still like it a lot.
It was up for a sketch over at Creatively Yours.
This is Steve and I when we had stolen a little time away while our oldest was just about 6 months old. Boy time has flown by.

The title is my way of talking about us both getting a second chance at marraige. We both came from divorces, after young love didn't last. The second time around has been wayyyy better. Even though our circumstances aren't what we had hoped at the time. lol.

This page is made with Kaiser Crafts paper. I love these pages with the lines through them. It makes writing on the page so fun and easy.

As always, thanks for looking, leave me a comment if you want.

Easter blessing

I recently made this gift bag for a special lady in the community. She watches over kids that are living in temporary shelter situations. What a heart she must have.

I find it so much more fun to create a gift when I know for whom I'm creating. Do you find that also?
