I'll try to get the rest posted later in the week, including the cute slide mini book I did about Annde's first Camping Trip. It came out super cute... It came with my kit from the Zone, which was also filled with Daisy Bucket, Basic Grey, Bazzill, and plenty of Kaiser Rhinestones. Fabulous!! Chat with you later!

My 100th Post!!
Wow! I didn't expect to get to a 100 so quickly... When I started this blog, I was only doing entries once or twice a month. Thanks to everyone who listens to me ramble on and on and on...
This last week was very scrappy! In addition to 6 mini books I did as a fundraiser for my sister (I'll be posting those that are left in my etsy shop soon), I completed quite a few pages and a mini-book for the Zone.
For Pink Sketches, I came up with this layout & card for the sketch this week. I love this paper from We R Memory Keepers!! It's soooo me: bright and full of colors. There is also layered chipboard tags/words and rubons to match... I couldn't wait to buy them!
I also did this page about Breast Cancer - you guys know from reading my blog how important this cause is to me. This summer, I walked in the Race for the Cure in Detroit. I wanted to do a special page that commemorated why we walked more than just that we walked. I thought it came out cool - I even incorporated items from the walk into the page. The ribbons (side of layout and the tabs under the clock) are actually New Balance shoe strings. The hanging charms at the bottom read "I AM THE CURE" and denote the sizes of typical lumps based on when they are detected. (The description from each is found on a tag that pulls out). I just love how this page came out. I have already had one survivor comment to me that she loved the page so for me, that is the most important thing.
This is a page I did using a picture I took of Annde's running shoes and an older picture of Annde running on the track. I've been hoarding this little picture for a while, trying to come up with the perfect layout. I think it came out awesome! It journals about how Annde has begun to show "Jana tendencies" such as running and how proud I am of them. I also wanted her to know that whatever she decides to do (in the future), we will be proud. And, if she wants to quit or is frustrated, to come to us and we'll work it out together.
My daughter is obsessed with Little Pets - we counted and she now has over 60 of them. I realized that while they might pop up here and there in a layout, I've never done one specifically about them. So, what the heck - Here's my Little Pet Layout...
