During this process, I have met some really nice people and made some new friends. This first card is for a special person who is on the same journey as me....I am looking to create a better lifestyle for me and my family. We met a little over three weeks ago and we will be keeping in touch after our training is over. I made this card for her, giving her some words of encouragement to take what she has learned and use it to her advantage. This card is all about "Embrace what makes you unique", the butterfly signifys the freedom to be who you are and spread your wings and take flight, the flower symbolizes growing where you are planted and make it happen your way...the words on the inside says it all....Dance like no one's watching you, Sing like no one can hear you, Love like you've never been hurt before, Live like it's heaven here on earth.....I hope she likes the card I had a great time creating it! I used Recollections ready made card, covered it with some art-deco printed paper, I used green cardstock strip and MS to punch the edge, added some lavender cardstock to bring in that spring look, added some soft pink grossgrain ribbon, I used Picturesque cart to cut out the butterfly, added some glitter to bling it a little, and made my flower from paper punch added a pink/white strip brad, added a premade quote card and 4 self-stick pearls, a purple striped twine an doodle white gel pen.
My new position will allow me to be in control of my hours of work..and days off, therefore I will be back to normal of posting my work begining the first week in May!!!!
I am looking forward to creating some beautiful Mother's day cards....until then.....have a wonderful EASTER and I will be sharing with you all again soon!

This little book holds about 16-20 pages which will give you 32-40 photos to place inside. If you don't have "YourStory" you are definitely missing out on a gem!!! My idea is to get most of my photos into personalized size books and if I choose to... in the future to give them away as gifts, I can make sure everyone at the party receives their own personalized album....there is no end to the reasons why you need this machine...this project was created from my (2) youngest grandchildren, Olivia & James III who had a combined birthday party last November and so I wanted to make their album festive & bright...I also left some pages blank for journaling & decorating.....
