Plenty of Personality

Well, I’m still very far off from my 2010 scrapbooking quota (six pages per month), but here is one more towards that goal! Although it’s hard to see, this page is actually a progressive scrapbook page as well. I created it for a workshop I had last week. I unfortunately forgot to take pictures of the page in its three stages – 6 X 6, 8.5 X 11 and then 12 X 12 — but if you look closely I think you can figure it out. I took these pictures of my niece on July 4th last year and actually there were probably at least four more featuring her.

Oh well… Anyway, each month I have two groups of ladies that get together for a “girls night out” and make 3 to 4 projects, chat and eat with friends. This month this card is one of the projects the ladies got to make (don’t worry stamp club #1 — you’ll make it at this week’s meeting!). It features the new heart treat cups and the special “Sweetheart” stamp set that was released especially for these heart shaped cups (we released circle cups in the Holiday Mini last fall). I have to say that I even impressed hubby Matt with this card… he looked at it and started to give me that customary
