Secret Sis Projects

Ok, so I'm hedging my bets that my secret sis doesn't read my blog, because I just can't wait ANY LONGER to post these! These two projects were made for the final package to be sent to my secret sis. The box was *supposed* to go out today, but alas, I forgot to actually *buy* the box to put the stuff in. It's been a tad hectic around here. My German Shepherd Dog, Gandy, has decided that he doesn't like Momma working and not being home during the day, so he's going to EAT something or somethings. He has taken a certain fancy for a pillow that I bought in Oman (yes, in the Middle East, Oman), so needless to say, I'm NONE too happy with him right now. Every night, instead of stamping, I'm cleaning up the carnage that he has left for me and punishing him. I tried putting up fences to keep him confined to a certain area. That doesn't work - he's too big and knows it. He just goes where he wants and makes a bigger mess knocking down the gate. I think I have it now... He didn't eat anything today (that I've found yet, anyway). Wish me luck! And, if you have ANY suggestions, PLEASE send them my way!
Ok, enough whining, now to the stamping....
The first project I made for her that took FOREVER (because I'm a perfectionist) was a birthday calendar using the Art Journal. Each month has two pull-outs that she can use for notes, listing the birthdays, or photos.
The complete details have been posted on my New DBWS!Here is an example page...

The next project I made for her was a family portrait using the All in the Family set. I'm really happy with how this turned out. I had asked her to send me a photo of the family members back at the beginning of the round, but I never got it. So, I couldn't color the family. She's going to have to do that, but that will take like 5 minutes to do. I used the NEW and FABULOUS Ginger Blossom DSP... Did I mention that I LOVE THIS PAPER!!!! I promise to make projects with the paper and not hoard it. This project is also on the DBWS - look at me go!

Until next time...
