Blink, and It'll Be Here Tomorrow!!

Christmas, that is! Can you believe it? We are in the last part of 2010! Where has the year gone?! Halloween is next month; then it's Thanksgiving; and then finally, it's Christmas. (In case you didn't see my FB post, there's only 98 days until Christmas. Just so you know. :) You're welcome!)

Today, I created this card. I've been in the creating mood, but haven't had much time to act on it. I saw this design on Papertrey Inc and fell in love with it. It is a bit of layering (I think I might simplify the next one), but I really like how it turned out.

Courtney's Creation!

One of my newest young customers definitely has an AWESOME creative inner self. I met Courtney on August 15th and the way her eyes lit up when she was making cards here at my house was wonderful. She and her mom, grandmother and friend were all here making cards, and I do believe they all had a great time. I know I enjoyed teaching them different techniques.

Courtney had a homework assignment this past decorate her notebook. Her dad said it took her a few hours to work on it. In my opinion, she created a masterpiece. Her masterpiece served as a distraction that she so needed. Take a look at what she created and share your comments. I know Courtney would love to read them as much as I would.

I look forward to teaching Courtney and her family more exciting techniques. The creations & possibilities are ENDLESS!!

Billie, Lana & Courtney -- Tons of hugs coming your way!
