mmmm......

chips and dip...why are they so good? and why do i like to eat them at night? so, as i am typing this, i am getTing ready to go take a run. it is GORGEOUS here!



i love my BTA! do you? I use it so much. and this time i used it with the Teresa Collins premade boards that I got at HSS. This is for my dear friend Sarah {soon to be Sarah Lee, how cute is that}. she is getting married this weekend and she is a poet. and an amazing one. she has been through so much and for her to find this kind of happiness, makes my heart happy.


and an april wedding for a poet deserves some serious inspiration. here's to a lifetime of happiness, Sarah!


i raised the flowers on the frong cover with some pop-up dots.


i added some tabs to the papers along the side so she can make different sections.


and Glimmer Mists!


i made a little book to go with it that she might be able to carry with her in her purse.


AND!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHECK OUT MY FRIEND LISA'S BLOG. SHE IS GIVING AWAY SOME SERIOUS RAKS! AND SHE IS ONE OF THE FUNNIEST PEOPLE I KNOW.
