It's Blog Hop Time!

Welcome to Made Especially For You's 2 Year Blogoversary Blog Hop!

If you've come from Pam's blog, you're in the right place! If you just came across the hop, please start at the beginning over at Made Especially For You.

As some of you may know, I used to be part of the Made Especially For You design team!  It was the first design team that I was ever on ... it was a lot of fun, and Ashley really did a fantastic job of keeping things organized!!  It was a pleasure to design for Made Especially For You and I'm so grateful for all of the crafty friends (including Ashley:) that I made along the way! 

Instead of having a theme for the hop, Ashley put together a bingo board full of some of her favourite crafty things and we were to choose at least 3 of them and create a project.

 I chose to make something with some 3-D elements, some lovely Pearls, and some fun Polka Dots!!

First I created this double page layout ... (there aren't any photos ... as I'm planning on using this for an album that we are giving my sister for her wedding .... shhhh - don't tell ;)

Here's my 3-D flowers ... along with some polka dot flowers and a pearl straight pin!

Oh ... and because I love pearls, I had to add a few more!

... and a few more!

And for those of you that know me ... you know that I love to make cards!  So I made a card with some of my scraps!

This card has a 3-D effect with my big silver ribbon ... some pearls ... and some stickles on the sentiment (sorry hard to ssee this in the pic)!

To coordinate with our bingo board, we have sponsors providing prizes to match each item listed on the board!

I've used my sewing machine to stitch around the card ... it makes for a nice but subtle extra touch!

Our Girls: Album Part 6


I'm back with the final page of this mini album ... I kept it nice and flat to ensure that it would sit nicely on a coffee table :)

I hope you've enjoyed the album!

Our Girls: Album Part 4

Hi there!

Today I`m sharing another page from my "Our Girls" Album ...

I've used candy dot jewels to add some dimension to the centre of these flowers ... a simple but effective embellishment ...

I love these cute chipboard bits .. so easy to use and so pretty!

Thanks for popping in today!
