Paper Shoes

First off, I drew a winner for last week's Creating Keepsakes' September/October 2012 issue giveaway.   The winner is . . . Cyndee K.  Please email me with your full name and address (my email is on the right sidebar).  Congrats Cyndee!!

If you've been following my blog, you know I'm addicted to making paper shoes.  I created a couple pairs with Making Memories' Modern Millinery line for their booth at CHA last month.  Pair #1 . . .

I used my Slice to cut the layers for the roses.  

Pair #2 . . .

Back home

After several days and nights at the animal hospital, our sweet kitty, Smokey, is back home and he seems to be doing better.  We're so happy to have him home and I can tell that he's happy to be home. We're keeping a very close eye on him.  Fingers crossed that he stays healthy.  I really appreciate the supportive comments to my last blog post and the good wishes.  Thank you!!!

I have a layout to share today.  This was something I created for the "Kitchen-Inspired Scrapbooking" feature in the May/June 2012 issue of Creating Keepsakes.  I used a paper doily as a template for hand-stitching.
