Winner of my Giveaway~G45 Tag Swap

Thanks so much for all the sweet comments!  The winner of the tear critters is:  Debby from the Cozy Blanket, Congrats!  Please email me with your address.

I was in a swap from Life on the Scrap Beach with Cassi from It Smells Like Scrap.  We had to create 3 tags using 3 different Graphic 45 collections.  I choose the Magic of Oz, Goddess Collection and the duet collection:


This was my favorite!  I will have to make one for myself.  I took tissue paper and adhere it to the tag then ran it threw the cuttlebug using Tim’s embossing folder.  I hand cut the high heel shoe and added the bow and feathers.  Really love this tag!  I’m off for vacation and will be back after the 4th.  Have a Happy 4th of July and a great week.  Hugz, Z

THANK YOU to our U.S. Troops

Two weeks ago Kathryn from Life on the Scrap Beach on her Thursday weekly Ustream show told a story of a 10 year old boy, Stephen Goodman from Surprise, AZ who wanted to send a thank you card to all military personnel.  Not to one platoon, or to just one division, but to every actively deployed service member in the U.S. military.

Donations are being accepted from anyone creating handmade thank you cards on Stephen’s behalf. For every five cards and envelopes sent to Bazzill, the maker will be entered into a drawing to win two FREE tickets to the last Creative Escape 2011 (travel and accommodations, not included). Cards must be received by July 1, 2011. Click here to go to the Bazzill blog and read all about it: Bazzill Basics Paper.

I made 10 cards and here is a sample of what I sent:


It took me an hour to do these, imagine Stephen and his family have already done more than 15,000 themselves!  I really hope he reaches his goal.  It is totally awesome, whether you believe in the war or not it is important that each of our men and women know how much they are loved and how much we wish their speedy and safe return home.   Please, be sure when making your cards that you DO NOT use glitter.  It shines in the night and makes them an easy target.  I hope you find it in your hearts to help Stephen.


My two year anniversary to my blog is coming up!  Wow, be sure to keep an eye out next week.  I will be posting a small giveaway in honor of my wonderful 2 years.  Have an awesome weekend.  Hugz, Z

Let’s Get Shabby Challenge #24

Well, this month’s challenge at Let’s Get Shabby is to Create a project based on a favorite memory or photo from YOUR childhood.  So, here is a photo of ME when I was 3 yrs old…lol


It is always a challenge for me to do vintage shabby chic.  I realize how much I love bright colors…lol  


This is an old earring I got from an antique store when I was with my friend June, prima flowers, webster’s cameo and prima bling.  I die cut the pink heart and added some vintage ribbon, doilies and the wire beads have tiny vellum pink hearts.  Be sure to check out the other creations from the fabulous LGS design team

We got Holly shaved for the summer…lol Here is what she looks like now.


Now you can really notice her under bite…lol  I love her new hair-do, but Gabby and hubby love her long hair.  Have a great weekend.  Hugz, Z
