It's been a while...

...since my last post, I will just say that my cup was so full that I almost broke it.  You know when sometimes you just can't say "no" and tend to please others.  Well I found out that I have to be first so that I can take care of the rest.  I found out the hard way, it was a nudge of some sorts or a push or kick whatever you want to call it, you get the idea.  I needed me time, and now I schedule it every morning before everyone wakes up, and I-am-liking-it.  Sometimes I will watch my favorite show, read (one of the many books on my never ending list), enjoy the silence, make a card or make a list (can't function without them). 

Don't think that I have been sitting here doing nothing (I wish) I have been creating a few things.  For example this card was made for the DCWV Blog April Sketch, Erin is now having card sketches, not only layouts.
This next mini was specially made for my friend Marie.  These are closeups of the front cover.  The cardstock used is DCWV Once Upon A Time stack.
On one side throughout the mini I created pockets to hold favorite people, places and food, hopes and fears and misc. facts.
The opposite sides where left blank so she can add her own favorite pictures.
As you can see I did not over-embellish because the paper has these beautiful hues and just the right amount of glitter.  I just inked and added a few charms, tulle and a little bling, hope you like it.
Have a blessed day!

Pretty mini album Gloria! I've never used that paper before. I'll have to take it out and use it one of these days. I love that sizzix die! TFS
