The Togetherness line from Cosmo Cricket was the perfect combination of colors and theme for this very precious photo, and it helps me tell how perfect this little moment was for all of us.
I feel so blessed to have the time and opportunity to scrapbook and preserve memories like these. The stories that we need to tell are so important, and are truly treasures in our lives. I am thinking it is time to go back into my older pictures again and see if I can find a few more treasures that deserve a little extra love...

It isn't that I need another hobby, but these are so tiny and giftable not to mention flat out super cute! After I got started I kept getting ideas from the other gals and loads of help too! Natalie drew the perfect little eyes and Celeste put on that perfect little pout. I did manage the hair and rosy cheeks myself, and I wish you could see the little green stripes on her legs.
Sweet Winnifred is sporting some seriously bewitching fashion and I think Christian Siriano would call her capelet "fierce"!
It really doesn't get much more fun than this, playing dolls with your friends, is definitely going to be on the agenda again!

Our theme for card group this month was using text on a thank you card. I love text of any kind and can always use more thank you cards! So this months card was something I was really excited to make! I started with some Tattered Angels spray mists in Vanilla Breeze and Patina on Hero Arts Snow colored cards as my base. I love how true the colors of the mists came up using the white as the base. I intentionally added lots of splatter drops for visual interest by just dipping a paint brush into the top of the mist bottle and then tapping it against my hand to give it some directional control, it was then set aside to dry. Then the edge of the card was inked using Frayed Burlap Distress ink. That same color was then used to stamp the gorgeous Hero Arts Old Letter Writing script wood mounted over the top of the misted layers.
Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly punch and added the beautiful Basic Grey Teal Opalines onto the bodies of those little butterflies. The sentiment was printed out on my printer, trimmed apart, adhered to the card a letter at a time and then stitched with my sewing machine for a little extra texture. I loved making this card and will be reproducing it in a few different ways and colors in the future. I thought it would be a fun one to share how I made and that someone else might be inspired by it as well.

I am celebrating the day in a few different ways, first I shared a trend watch post over at the CLASSroom on pleats. There is some gorgeous blog candy on all the posts over there today, so go leave some love and maybe you will get lucky!! And right now Ellen has so many gorgeous products in the shop that it is easy to be inspired!!
Second, I am going to be spending a little time in my studio playing with the products that I ordered from Ellen last week, new Pink Paislee, 7 Gypsies and Graphic 45 that have been calling my name all week!
Third and lastly, I will be enjoying the evening with my card group! We thought how fun and appropriate it would be to schedule our get together on WCMD so we could enjoy the day together. The theme of tonight's swap is using text and the topic is Thank You cards. I just love the card I made for tonight, lots of layers and it is shimmery!! (gotta love that!) I will share more on how I put it together tomorrow, but thought it would be fun to sneak a peek of it for today :o)
I just love the idea of this day, spending it creating memorable pieces of you that you will share with others is an amazing concept. It is all about the giving or yourself to others that you love and expressing your creativity while doing so, great stuff!
