Free Hugs

Peachy Challenge 02 :: Photo Inspiration

I just could not resist and using this PK stamp "Free Hugs" from the PK-288 collection,  for this photo.  The photo was cut in a Heart shape using the E2 center point feature.  The multi colored heart was done with Tim Holtz inks on photo paper then cut in a heart shape also. The Pink Heart is chip board painted and then Mod Podged.  The small heart is Emma's Die and stamped
This is one of my Shih Tzu's when she was a puppy and I got this shot that is amazing. 
We did Altered Heart Books for one of our craft projects for Valentine and this is one of the pages.  My Heart Book has all my 6 Shih Tzus in it.
Here she is now all grown up and still a cutie.

Tommy's Goodies

Hello and Happy Sunday,
This morning I woke up to some exciting news.  Well almost.  I had submitted my projects for the

DESIGN TEAM CALL  for  Creative Critterz Imaginations Blog.

I did get picked for an Alternate.  Almost Almost.  Anyway it is still  exciting to see your name there.

For my project today I made my husband his own Goodie Book.  He has so many recipes I thought I would make this for him to save all his old and new ideas in a book.
I used 4x6 index cards inside and did make some tabs so he can separate his creations. Yum Yum Yummy.
I used my new Art Philosphy Cartridge to make the Tabs and the Cup Cake and the Frame. which I colored in with Copic Markers.  Learning how to use them. Also I used my new Bind-It -All which I am having lots of fun with.  Hope is enjoys his new book.

My Cup Cake is a stamp from Emma's All Around Accessories and the Happy Birthday stamp is Emma's Gift Card Sentiments.  The Die is also Emma's XL Die behind the Cup Cake.
