Another week...

....has gone by and I can't believe the summer is going so fast! Eeek! I hope you all are enjoying your summer!

The next round of the Paper Crafts Card Idol contest is up and ready again. I'd love it if you would come and vote for your favorite. It's really easy this time...all the cards are in a row and at the bottom there is a link to vote. When you click it, it will give you all the names of the people, just check which one you want! It's that simple this time! There is no signing in or anything. I made it in the top 10 and this week 5 people will move onto the next round! Voting is up until Thursday at noon.

Here is the link to all the cards and voting: Cards with Quotes

This is the card I created for the contest. I used some October Afternoon journaling cards and attached them with ribbon in the back so the card can be folded up and sent in an envelope. Added chipboard letters to spell out "home" with a little doorknocker and quote by Melissa Frances that says, "Where we love is Home. Home is where our feet may leave...but not our hearts. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes." (click on photos to see them larger)



I hope you will come and vote for your favorite! There are SO many amazing cards!

Next, I wanted to share a little mini album that I made for Right at Home Scrapbooking. It is a kit that you can purchase. You get everything you see here plus a LOT more in this kit with directions and photos to complete each page! When it is open, it is 12x12 so you will have 10 full 12x12 pages to fit all your vacation photos in! There are chipboard pages, as well as acrylic pages to mix it up a bit. Click on the link above for information on purchasing the kit.
(Currently Out for Publication, ScrapStreet Ezine - Sept. 2008)
Well, that's all for me today! Thanks for stopping by! I love to read all your comments. And to my family in South Dakota reading this...I can't wait to see you all in a few short weeks! We are just thrilled to be coming home soon! ~Danielle~
