"There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it."

Today, I participated for the first time in SOC's Friday Night Challenge (FNC).  It was fun to do and I really enjoyed it. Below is my result for challenge #3.  We are celebrating the 8th Anniversary of SOC and had to do a layout using a given sketch that shows 8 things I love about me...

I've also made a gift book for one of my aunts using all her birthday cards from her 75th celebration. I only put adhesive on the back of each card so she can pull the page out and still open and read her cards. I surprised myself with the flower and sun I crafted on this page using my paper scraps.

Below are a couple things I've done aside from scrapbook layout pages.  I still have yet to try card making or Artist Trading Cards (ATC).  But I hope to expand to those as well as mini albums & acrylic albums.

These were Teacher Appreciation gift bags my son and I did for his 3rd grade teachers. We stamped the bags with different color inks and stickers. He made his own lil cards to put in the bags along with a cupcake scented candle, hand lotion, and a flower clothes pin clip.

This was my first time trying invitations. I made them for my son's birthday party. It was great!

Hello All,

Sorry I've been absent (technical difficulties) but I'm back and ready to get it crack-i-lackin'!  I finished the 8x8 scrapbook I was doing of my son's football season last year.  Here are a couple more of those pages:

This has become my FAVORITE scrapbook page. I bought a sports paper stack. When I saw the grass paper, I knew immediately I wanted to make a football field. So I cut white strips for the lines. Found some white foam number stickers which add dimension. So I decided to cut my son's shape for the pic. It turned out better than I expected!
