My love for teachers!

I have several friends who are teachers and I feel honored to call them my friends.  They are going back to school on Monday and I was inspired to make a piece of art for one of them. I hope to do a similar piece for each of them in the near future.

On a recent field trip with two teacher friends we found this quote and I had to use it in this piece.  I hope my friend smiles when she sees it this weekend!

Best wishes to all the teachers of the world starting a new school year soon!

Baby Album for our Niece's new baby!

I had great fun last week getting photos of our newest family member. His grandmother helped me get them without his Mom and Dad knowing. Then I edited them in Photoshop Elements and sent them off to be printed and waited! This week I got to make this album for Derek's Mom and Dad. Derek is being baptized this Sunday and we are going! Hopefully the proud parents won't see this post until after Sunday when Mike and I give them this album.

I used the Graphic 45 Alterable Box and Graphic 45 Little Darlings paper collection.

New Baby Tray and baby cards

I am going to be adding many items to my ETSY page in the coming week. The first being an Altered Silver Tray done for a baby photo.  The tray is approximately 12 1/2 inches in diameter.  This tray is for a baby girl but I would be happy to do a tray for a boy or in more neutral colors if anyone needs one.  Each tray is one of a kind so I can't really tell you what size yours would be.  If you would like to order one I can give you an idea of the size of the trays I currently have waiting to be altered and you can pick a size. 

As you can see in the photos I have made a photo mat for a 3 inch by 5 inch photo. You simply but carefully pull off the white paper and adhere your photo in it's place.  If you send me the photo I can do it for you before I mail the tray to you.

These trays are $50 each.  If you need me to alter a photo to fit the colors of the tray I can do that in Photoshop Elements but there would be an additional cost to do that.

Engagement Photos

My oldest son Matt is engaged to a lovely young lady - Kelly.  They recently did an engagement photo session in NC and I wanted to make something for Kelly's mom with the photos.  I choose the Graphic 45 ALTERED ART BOX WITH ALBUM.  The paper is from SIMPLE STORIES DOCUMENTED

So here are some photos of my finished project:
