Have I mentioned?

That I'm going to Alaska on a mission trip? Yup June 28th I'll be off with a group of 8 from my church in an organization called F.O.S.E.A. Friends of South East Alaska. We'll be there for two weeks.. one of those weeks we'll be staying in Kake Alaska having Bible school an
d getting to know the people of the town, then on our way home we'll making a few stops to see some of the amazing Alaska sites. I just finished making this cute journal for the trip, I've had the journal for a long time in my stash... must have picked it up somewhere cheap. Found the perfect use for it:

I used papers and stamps from Close To My Heart! Their new outdoor stuff was perfect!

Be Yourself!

A few new cards from the newest stamp set I got last night! It's Be Yourself from CTMH!

This lovely lady is done in Petal ink with the awesome fuzzy leopard paper from Anna Griffin.

This other lovely lady is done in Blush with fuzzy zebra paper from the same yummy Anna Griffin line. I stamped the sentiment on this one and then promptly stuck my hand in it.. that's why it's a bit fuzzy.. and I was to tired last night to tear it all apart and start over!

I made it...

Yesterday I found that I was selected as a member of Serendipity Stamps new design team. I am so excited I can barely contain myself. I cannot wait to get my first shipment of stamps and get creating! Be on the look out for new projects to show up here on my blog!

Check out all the cool stamps they have at

An odd coincidence!

I made this card a couple weeks ago to serve two purposes.. one to send as part of a design team application, and the other as a birthday card for my friend Debbie. Last week after I had made it we went and got pedicures and she was talking about how she'd like a little tattoo with mickey shaped balloons and her kids names in them... so yesterday when I gave her the card.. she was super excited about it, and I was happy that she liked it so much! What are the odds I'd make her a card with Mickey balloons?

Where am I?

A simple layout with those adorable arrow stamps!
