Shout Out To SheetLoad

Have you heard of sheetload before? I just learned about it myself. It's this great site that helps you create beautiful cards. I am a card dummy so I instantly fell in love with this site. Each month they give you a sketch and cutting directions for making 8 A-2 cards. They also post tons of samples from their talented artists. The cards are amazing. I can't wait to try them for myself. Click on their name below to get to their site.

Higgins Armory

I took Z and A to the Higgins Armory for the Mother/Son activity for BES. It's the first time we've ever gone on one before.

This lo was a challenge on the pieces of paper forum. The challenge was to do a two page lo, with 4 photos, ribbon, an oversized tag, sparkling title, 3 buttons, journaling and a die cut character. It was definitely a challenge to put all that on this lo but here it is.
