On the brown cardstock I used Fiskars Texture Plates and then sanded it to let the white core show thru.

Party Like a ROCKSTAR!

First time using Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint. Very FUN!

For Carol

One of my supervisors approached me Monday to make a poster for another co worker's 15 year employee appreciation recognition lunch. She proceeded to hand me a large poster board and a bag of crayons and markers with a list of vague details about the last fifteen years. You know me, this isn't good enough. Especially since I admire Carol and all she's done for me and the company. So I did it up!
She's going back to school right now so she can grow more with the company.
Her and her hubby were married in 1995. I thought the biker/rocker look suited them well.
The two blue butterflies are for her sons, the yellow for her baby grandson.
The C is for Carol. hehe. I used my wording to help with the flowers..."growing" with the company.
She always tells me to relax....and I know she tries to, too. The definitions are for sing, which she loves to do and does well, fun which she is, and smile, which she does a lot.
Carol also loves to play guitar and brings it along when she takes groups to camp and plays a lot with our clients. They love it, we all do.
When I presented it today, I told her that her life is beautiful and that this was all for her....

She loves her dogs and cats-she has more than me!I gave her two large composition books that I had made before and I altered this small one for her, too. She journals a lot, and I thought that she would love them, and she did.

Gift From EK Success

I am on the EK Success panel for surveys to give opinions on new products, packaging, etc. I got a package from them the other day saying thank you and here are some new stickers just for fun. YAY for happy scrappy mail!

Index Card Swap

We do so many RAKs, swaps, scrappy mail, etc, that it makes sense to just have all our addys in one place. This is the third one I've done over the years...or fourth? It's really simple, but cute enough, I think.
