9x9 Memory showcase Album

 This 9x9 Album I made using Robyn's photos from her Senior Prom. I used liquid glass and prisma glitter on the peacock's feathers. Organdy colonial white ribbon - and green/blue sparkles added more bling
 I used a top coat over the main photo and more ribbon and sparkles. I added clear embossing powder mixed with prisma glitter to the stickease in the center of the flower

 More liquid glass and prisma glitter really highlighted the feather on the right hand page.

I was so pleased with the way this turned out - hope you like it too :O)

21st place in the Bands Of America Grand Nationals :O)

I am so totally thrilled with the Walled Lake Central High School Marching Band. This past weekend they competed in the Bands of America Grand National competition and took 21st place = out of 86 bands. they did such a good job and this is on top of being the 2010 Flight 1 Michigan State champions. What a wonderful group of kids and teachers and supporters we have.
The season is virtually over and I am going to miss the involvement so much - but Jazz band starts in January so that will be good - I know Leo is going to enjoy that :O)

My Favorite Close To My Heart Product. . . . . .

 . . . . .   now that is a tough one - Close To My Heart sells so many awesome products - how can I narrow it down to just one!!!!   Okay I think we need to do this by a process of elimination:

Versamat? - I love it 'because it makes it so easy to line items up and place them in the correct position - plus the added bonus of the foam back is perfect as a stamping surface - but that's not my favorite.
Clear acrylic stamps and blocks?  They are totally awesome - you can see where you are putting your images - plus the high grade acrylic made clear and crisp images every time - but again - not quite my favorite.
The 60 exclusive colors of inks, markers and cardstock - now that is getting nearer - I love the fact they they all match and co-ordinate with each other - but no - that's not it.
The level 1 & 2 scrap-booking kits - they too are so cool - the Level 1 kits are perfect for both beginning scrap-bookers AND those of us who need to complete a beautiful layout quickly. and the level 2 paper packs are just perfect for scrap booking and card making alike.
Okay - I think we are there - I think my favorite product is probably the mini medleys - yummy little packets of embellishment goodies. ribbons and buttons and brads and fun accessories which match the colors in our inks, cardstock, paper packets and more. But wait. . . .
No sorry - changed my mind again - It HAS to be the Prisma glitter - oh what fun I have with that. You can truly add glitter to anything:O) And you can use it with so many different adhesives. how about adding it using the glue pen as snow or to form the glass in windows or as dragonfly and butterfly wings, or over the top of liquid glass for a 3D look. For perfect stripes - run a length of Tombow Mono Adhesive and sprinkle the glitter over the top - or to 3D foam tape for perfect squares and rectangles of glittery blocks. You can add it to embossing powder and heat set it - you can add it to the pearl paint for even more shimmer.
So yes Glitter gets my vote - what's your favorite item??

The WLCMB competition at Lakeland High School -

I am absolutely thrilled to tell you that my son Leo and the other members of the Walled Lake Central Marching Band took 1st place in the Flight 1 State championships on Saturday. All of the competing bands were marvelous but the judges thought that they were the best.
This is the 1st time they have been State Champions so that makes it even more special.
So if you copy and paste this link into your browser      http://www.vimeo.com/16357912              you will be able to see the show from a couple of weeks ago. Remember that these kids are aged between 13 and 18. They spend many hours practicing so it is so nice when it all pays off :O)
Hope you enjoy it.
