Happy Birthday Christin!!!

Hello Stampers!  Today I am making a special post for one of my very good friends and upline Christin Rocha!  Today is Christin's birthday...Happy Birthday Christin!!!  Christin has been a wonderful friend for almost 10 years and a fantastic upline for almost 6 years.  She has taught me everything I know about stamping.  She is so creative.  Christin you have been a wonderful mentor, leader and friend and I am so blessed to have you in my life.

 This is one of my favorite pictures of Christin!

Jen's Special Project!!!

Hello Stampers!  I have been telling you for a week now to stay tuned for a very "Special Project" from my friend Jen Martin.  Jen was asked to create a special after dinner project for Debbie's Demo Event.  She sure did create something special!!!  Jen did such a AMAZING job creating this album.  Thank you so much Jen :-)  Here are some pictures of the Happy Christmas Mini Scrapbook Album.

This is the front cover, isn't it beautiful?  Click on the photo to enlarge it.  We used the Simply Scrappin Kit from the holiday catalog called "Merry Moments".  Our Simply Scrappin kits are wonderful.  I just love how she embellished the cover using some of my favorite accessories.  She used the new snowflake die called "Snow Flurry".  I love this new snowflake die!  We also used the new "Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle Ribbon", which has become my favorite right now.  You can do so much with this ribbon.  Did you notice those large pearls?  The perfect accessory for the center of the "Vintage Faceted Buttons"  which have also become a favorite of mine.  Are you ready to see some more pictures of this album?

Here you start to open the album by lifting up the front cover.

Next flip down the bottom bottom page.

Next flip the left page out.

Next flip the right page out.

Next unfold the left hand page.

Lastly, unfold the right hand page.

So what do you think?  One of my friends Julie Arvin who also attended the event suggested putting photos from the event in the album.  What a great idea Julie!  So I will be sure to show you again once I have it completed with pictures.

So now, who is ready to meet my AWESOME friend Jen Martin???  Here are 2 pictures of us taken at Convention this past July.  

Isn't she the cutest!  She is such a riot!!!

Here is a picture of us at the Demo Event with our friend Julie Arvin!  Julie is my computer whiz!

That is all I have for you today my stamping friends.  I hope you enjoyed seeing this special project, I loved making it.  BIG Thank you to Jen Martin!!!
Thank you for stopping by today.  Until then stamping friends...
Happy Stamping!
