Happy Fathers Day

Although Hugh had the flu and had to go to the doctor on Saturday. He seemed to feel much better today. Kristin had to give hime a great gift. Guinness!!! OMG he was so shocked but thrilled. He had never tried it. And hey every dad needs a new shirt right!!! Hugh already got a Lowe's gift card so the best thing I could do after that was a "new wallet". All in all I think he had a great Father's Day. Thanks Hugh for being a great day to 3 very special girls. Best of all thanks for being my best friend. Hope your day was a great day.

Inspirations Journal

Been following these two great ladies on making journals as well as some great art!! Thanks Tracy Weinzaphfel Burgos president of Helmar USA. and Joanne Sharpe!!! I am really enjoying this challenge fronm Tracy. It is a one month challenge to journal art every day!!! What could be better than crafting and creating as well as adding my thoughts or a special quote in my book. I also have my daughter joining in to. She likes to write like Joanne does so her book will be awesome.. She actually did start her page last night to!!! The book was homemade with chipboard covers and water colored paper inside. Here is a shot at my cover and first page!! For the cover I used chipboard, painted it, random stamped on it, added acrylic letters, added some alleens paper glaze on them and then added some flowers and bling. For the inside first page, my title page Is what I am calling it. I used all kinds of random paper from a Michaels Girly Girl Recollections slab. Torn into pieces and then mod podged them on and the all over. My paper started curling so I slapped on a piece of clear acrylic while wet. Then added random ribbon, flower, bling and a tassle and some letters. I added a journal spot that explained how I felt at the moment. I am really liking this random thing. Seriously I didn't match anything at all. Stay tuned for page 2.....

Thanks for looking
