OH Edward!

Well I bought my first digital stamps EVER! I couldn't possibly pass up the little Dressy Edward Stamp... I got Bella (Dressy Camille) too and an adorable Cupcake Anya. These stamps are from the Greeting Farm! They have a lot of great stamps to chose from, Digital and Rubber! These pics aren't the greatest but I wanted to post them non the less. I had fun coloring them in with the Close to my Heart blending pen and inks (first time trying it, works pretty good!). Anyways I plan on doing a project with the twilight couple very soon, so stay posted!!

Mystery Hostess Night Make and Take

To celebrate the new Close to my Heart Fall/Winter 2010 catalogue I hosted a mystery hostess night at my home earlier in the month. I made tons of food and prepared a make and take which introduced all of the four new paper packs! How I chose to run the "mystery hostess" part was that for every $25 ordered (before taxes and s&h) you were able to enter your name in the hat, meaning the more you spend the better your chances and the better the hostess credits! It was a fun night and the lady who ended up winning was able to get quite a load!

My Little Lady Turns One!

I did a ladybug theme for my little girls first birthday! It was so much fun to do! I decorated a small cake as well as many cupcakes. I made the invites, a banner, and decorated photo albums for the kids to take home. I used CTMH product: Tulip cardstock, Colonial white cardstock, Save the Date Stampset, Tiny Type writer stampset, Priceless Love Wordpuzzle stampset, Flourished Blessings Stampset, and Tulip,Topiary,Black Inks.
One question remains...What will next years theme be??
