Painted Shelf for Horse Collection

I saw this cute lil' wooden shelf at Michael's and thought it would be perfect for my daughter's horse collection! Most are Breyer's Stablemate's..so they are smaller to fit!

Friends Tag

I found this lil' bird template from Hero Arts. I challenged myself to use it.
The ribbon with beading is from the Dollar Store.
This is somewhat a scraplift, but with a lil' twist of my own design.

I worked on this layout all day. The chipboard pieces I altered with paper, ink, and mild sanding. They are by BasicGrey.
I saw this sweet picture of my lil' girl in a regular album..I felt it needed to be scrapbooked ..my girl is a bit bigger now, but it is nice to look back!
She is my beautiful girl!

Big Owl mini-album

This mini-album is a scraplift idea from Hero Arts blog. The Big Owl is made by Hero Arts so I look for idea's there. I made this mini-album as a small gift for my friend who's dh is in the Army serving in Iraq. She can add pic's of her children to backside or maybe add some journaling and send it to him.
She has 3 kids and works fulltime, I figured she could use some of my creative goodies since she doesn't have much time herself.
Hope she likes it!
