My Army soldier son's 28th birthday is the 29th of November. He just returned to his station in Germany from a tour of duty in Iraq, and his dad and I will be sending his birthday gifts and card to him, this week.

When I saw the Mojo Monday sketch, I thought it a GOOD layout for Trey's birthday card. With just a few modifications, to allow for a soldier silhouette stamp, my submission (and more importantly, Trey's card) is finished!

I hope he likes it and knows that his mama is VERY proud of him!!

Pals Paper Arts "In The Pink"

Pals Paper Arts is featuring a Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge. The only requirement is that PINK be used.

Here is my submission, a bridal shower card in pink and chocolate brown.

A Cuttlebug embossing folder was used for the background; Fiskars templates used for the smooth ovals; Nestabilities used for the scalloped oval.

The shadowed name was created with PrintShopPro. The "bridal dress on hanger" and chipboard sentiment are from a 3-D set. A snippet of pink ribbon was taped behind the "chocolate" layer and "rhinestones" added to echo the smaller stones on the bridal dress. The "dress hook" is a pink brad, attached just above the dress hanger.

It is a five-day course entitled, "BLING OUT YOUR BLOG 2.0," offered by Scrapinstyletv.com. The instructor definitely knows her stuff, so I'm HOPEFUL that I'll gain a wee bit of her knowledge. (At least, I found my way BACK to my blog! I'll consider that an accomplishment, as they may be FEW.)

Day One at Deb's

How EXCITING! I decided, this morning, to become a BLOGGER!!

So, today's entry will serve as my introduction, should anyone "discover" me!

I provide childcare and preschool in my Ooooklahoma home, and use my scrapbooking supplies and tools (and techniques I've seen demonstrated by creative scrapbooking bloggers) to make learning resources for my youngsters, as well as to create handmade cards for family and friends.

Making early childhood books from lunchbags is my most recent venture and I have given workshops where I've demonstrated the process and displayed my completed works. I'll share photos, as soon as I get comfortable with my NEW site!

I co-own a 450+ member Yahoo early childhood learning group called, "Learning Centers," where early ed curricula is collected and shared -- and where emotional support is generously given. What a TERRIFIC group of people!

Oookay! That should be PLENTY of introducing, I should think! Hopefully, I can find my way BACK to my own site! Ha! If so, I'll post MORE soon.
