Teresa Collins' Vintage Finds cards

I created this card for the Bloggers Challenge Black and White with a Splash of Color Challange. Bloggers Challenge: Color Splash
She Scrapbooks Store in Lady Lake, FL near The Villages
I recently went to the She Scrapbooks store's retreat in the Villages just north of Orlando, FL to enjoy a weekend away! What fun! Here are 2 cards I designed and the lower photo is the projects designer, Yvonne Blair, of She Scrapbooks designed. She is also on Teresa Collins' design team of course.
So enjoyed meeting new and fun people and even got 5 double page layouts done! Yeah!!

Summer Highlights Collage!

Here are summer highlights! Enjoy the show!
So many memories, and so little time! I was busy working in an office all summer, but that didn't stop me from taking a few short vacations, and cooking up a storm of deserts!
See my previous post for the recipe of this delicious torte which I made several times!!  Kelsey was busy as ever, herself, and she got her driver's license, campaigned, and went to 3 camps! WOw!
Other wonderful milestones:  John and I celebrated our 32nd Anniversary!! And we all drove up to see my 2nd oldest son, to celebrate his 21st birthday!!!
God has truely blessed us!!

"A Cup of Tea" Card

For this card I added textured flowers, by twisting small pieces of crepe paper into roses. Used green grossgrain ribbon for the leaves, and loved this vintage seam binding lace for the ribbon and bow.  This is The Cat's Pajamas Swanky Stamps:  Toni's Tea Set, colored with Marvy Le Plume markers, #P796,P786, E865, OY841, and stamped with Momento Black. The image is popdotted as well. Paper is Prima Patterned, and Bazzell textured cardstock in Pink and celery.  Pearls are cut from Want2Scrap leftovers.  All this was in my unused stash, and I thought it was too pretty to not just have a morning of playing around with it.

"Lucky Dog" Puppy Album!

Well, this is an album I have made of our beloved doggie when she was just a pup! Hope you enjoy it!! Sometimes, it is important to look back at very special memories when you seem to be overwhelmed with all the changes, and remember, that "change" always brings good things.  Sometimes, it can be a puppy (after the death of another very special doggie), and sometimes it is just the passing of time that brings different changes.  Sorry I am very melodramatic today. Enjoy!
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey Max and Whiskers
Cover: Zutter 5x7 red chipboard
Black 3/4" Zutter O'Wires
Fiskars border punch, Prima Flowers of old.
Bazzell cardstock of various colors.
Letters: Thickers
Fussy cutting of patterned papers.
