A couple new frames to share...

As promised, I'm uploading the latest frames that we've finished. These all went in the mail to their happy homes today. So, if one of these belongs to you...start stalking that postman!

First to show ya...This one was a spin off of a sample that I'd done before Nationals. Our client specifically wanted the name of her daughter's dance (Dancing Shoes) and the stars that I'd had on the sample. I don't think you can really see it, but I used a bit of glitter glue on the name of the dance...adds just a bit more sparkle to an already sparkly creation!

This frame is a surprise for Stevie. ENJOY!!

And let me say...I absolutely LOVE this iridescent paper. I loved it from the start and have liked just about every frame that I've done with it. Oh, and I found this in yellow and a really pretty blue too. I have a sample in the yellow but cannot wait to create something with that blue one!, for the second frame that we're sharing today. This is another take on a sample that we had for Nationals. I actually shared that sample last week. The original sample was with a landscape format for the photo...but this one is for a portrait photo. I'm actually liking THIS one better than the first one that I did. Hope Gabrielle and her mom like it too! Oh...and the letters that I used for Gabrielle's name and the date...those are by Making Memories and I'm loving those too. They're the PERFECT size for what we're doing and there are just so many letters in a pack. I picked these up in just about every color they had. (Notice the pink ones on the Dancing Shoes frame??)
And finally...this fun tie-dyed looking frame. Another take on a sample that we had. the sample was a smaller frame and this gentleman specifically asked for a larger frame. Love how pretty this paper is. The colors just flow together so nicely. And...of course...there are those Making Memories letters again. Told ya I love those things! I might just need to pick up a few extra packs of these babies!!

I'm on vacation for the next week and won't be sharing anything from this end. Maybe Maggi will share a few of her gorgeous creations while I'm gone. I know she's been busy too. I especially can't wait to see the Zebra print with the orange...I bet they're awesome! that I have you wondering what I'm talking about...I better get up from here and finish packing before hubby decides to go without me! LOL

Till next time!

My new favorite...

Statistically, there are far more girls that dance (at our studio anyway) than boys. So, obviously, most of our orders have been for girly type stuff. Lots of pinks, and bling. So, when we got this order for a frame for this little guy, the wheels in my head started turning.

Max is a cutie pie to begin with. But let me tell ya...dressed up in his tuxedo type costume, on that stage, he was a REAL show stopper!

This is a photo of the costume that Max wore...(btw, this photo was taken from the Curtain Call Costumes website. I just happened to come across this photo when I was looking for a bit of inspiration...cute cute costumes there!!) I wanted to make sure this frame wasn't too girly and would go nicely with his costume photo that his Mom is planning to put in it.

I've worked on this one for a few days now stages. Adding a little bit of this and little bit of that. Trying to make it "just right". After I put the polka dots on there this afternoon, I knew that it needed a little "sumpin else". I decided to put "suspenders" on here...just like the costume. And now I think it's finished...and not only is it finished, it's become my new FAVORITE frame that I've made since starting on this fun adventure.'s Max's frame. I'm happy with how closely it resembles the costume. Exactly what I was shooting for! I sure hope he and his mom like it!

Now to finish Caroline's mini book.

Oh...and we have other orders finished and ready to ship this week. I'll take photos of the ones that I've done and share them tomorrow.

And remember, if you need to reach us, just drop us an e-mail at

Till next time...

We're back...

Our big set up at Nationals is over and I think we've recovered. I slept a good 14 hours on Tuesday night. I'm SOOOOOOO not a morning person so those 7am report times got the best of me!

Above is the photo that I took after we set up on Sunday morning. I'd like to thank my friend, Mark Baird, for the fantastic sign that he made for us. It added so much to our booth. I wish he could have been there to see how great it looked! Thanks again, Mark!

We'd like to thank everyone that stopped by our booth and especially to those that placed orders. We're working on getting orders completed and we hope to get everything shipped and delivered within the next few weeks. Watch here for pictures as things are finished. We'll be sure to share everything!

If you see something you like and would like to place an order, please contact us at

Till next's our next share. This is another cute coaster hanger. This one is for Christy. Love how her name looks in the bling. You can click on the images to see them larger. I've got another mini album in the works tonight and will be ready to share it tomorrow.

Busy busy busy!!!

Just a few more days till Maggi and I set up at the Dance America National Dance Competition. We've been busy working on more samples to display at our vendor table on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. (July 6, 7 and 8). So watch for LOTS of pictures in the upcoming week. I'd like to say that I'll get the sample photos up here before we head out on Sunday but I'm not sure if that will happen. With tomorrow being the 4th and a big birthday here in my house on Saturday. (don't think my son will appreciate me spending time on the computer on HIS birthday...he's a teenager...need I say more??? LOL)

Anyway...with that said...I'm off to see what other goodies I can come up with for Sunday's show.

Till next time...
