Do You See What I See??????

I had just pulled my towel down from the shower glass pane and I looked up and saw this image. At first I was in awe. Then I noticed that it was evaporating at a rapid rate.

Picture me scrambling trying to find my camera.......LOL, all I knew was that I had to take the picture. I was so excited, I must have taken 10 pictures, and I chose this one because it was the clearest of them all.

Let me tell you what I see! I see a couple facing each other about to kiss, and I see a heart in the picture as well. Do you see it?

When I showed this picture to my husband he said I dont get it? Urgh MEN!!! I had to point it all out until he could make it out. By George he finally got it......hehehehehehehe.

I did tell him, I think our shower misses us in there together.

Altered Cigar Purse

I love, love, love, to alter things. By far my favorite would be a cigar purse. I must of made about 25 of them so far. One of my favorites is the one pictured to the right. I loved how green and red look together.

I made this for an entry to the LSS design team contest along with a layout and I got picked as one of the designers. A highlight in my itty bity scrapbooking career.

The paper is from Bo Bunny. They have one of the best scrapbooking printed paper and accessories around. I used Making Memories red paint, ribbon, and a flowered chip board. Inside is painted as well and I add a oval shapped mirror.Most of my purses if you remember on a earlier post was donated to my friend Enriquetta's cute little gift shop.

The purse pictured here was given to my sister in law Rose.

Party Favors for Friends

Recently my twin sister asked me if I would make her party favors for her Friends get together. Of course I would.
Every other month she has a group friends that host a party at each others home, and this time it was my sisters turn.
I went to this cute little scrapboking store and found a die cut that turned cardstock into little purses. All needed was for me to decorate it. I had my sister pick the colors and printed paper.
When working on them I wanted to make sure that it was cute and girly. I really like how it turned. I filled it up with peppermint candy.
I was invited to the get together and went down to Southern California to attend. I saw friends that I have not seen in 25 years....yikes! I was in 9th grade. Some of them still looked the same. I find it funny how my sister never loses touch with any of her friends. It is not often that I get to hang out with the girls, no children, a little wine, and a whole lotta fun.

Valentine ATC

I am HOOKED! I was always curious about ATC cards, and exchanges, but never joined any of the swaps. The cards are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and fit perfectly in the baseball collectors holder.
But the girls @ scrap space---> were having signups to join this exchange and since Valentines is my favorite time of year I decided to join.
This is the one I made for the swap. The paper is from loves this line!
I can't wait for my exchanges to come back, I will post once I get them it.
Have a happy scrappy day.

Monnie's Shoebox

I went this past weekend to Los Angeles to take care of a few things. One of my stops was taking my darling Godchild Monnie to her ballet class. I could not go in because they only allowed 1 person in, so her Mom (my neice Amanda) went with her while my twin and I walked through old town Glendora.

It was nice visiting all the cute stores the town had to offer. Of course I stopped at the local scrapbook store. When her class was over Amanda told us that the ballet teacher had requested that they decorate a shoe box. I promptly volunteered, of course I would for this is up my alley.

I mailed it off this morning via the post office so that she would have it for Saturday's class.
