Hi! We are back!

I have gotten SO MANY emails. Pm’s and wonderful news I don’t know where to begin! So I have alot to do over the next few days!

Let me start by saying that I have dedicated a entire page to Alexa’s Disney Make-A-Wish. I chose some photos and memories to share so I hope you enjoy reading them! We had an AMAZING time! So feel free to read it and share your thoughts if any.

I also have to reply to the new thread started for Alexa’s pretend stamping friends, for chat. That way those of you who subscribe to the Prayers won’t don’t worry everytime there is a posting (thanks Tracey for starting that). It “may” get moved from what I hear. If you cannot access it its because its in demo chat.

I came home to new goodies!!! That means more things to work with and share with you. Some of my work has to be exclusive to the places I design for so I hope you will look for them!

I came home to see I also have 3 publications in print!

First one is “Ruff Day” in Paper Made Easy (I’m in the beginning on page 5! JUST so close to the cover!!) and its featured on page 52!

mytime-doggy-treat-paper-made-easypg-52-june-2007.jpg It has all the instructions are in there so I won’t repeat it! LOL! I made this bone template myself-cute eh?

On page 66 you can see my Enjoy your birthday card!


I’m also featured in The Rubber Stamper page 21 in the Collage section!


I have also recieved some MORE great news.

Many of you noticed that I was asked to be on the Design Team of Lizzie Anne! Be on the look out, as my biography will be there soon. I do have some samples posted there in the gallery as well.

 I am also working with Kim from My Favorite Things stamps. She is just amazing! So watch for her stuff as well.

While I was gone I applied to be on a design team for Green Grass Stamps, and guess what-I’m in!!! YIPEE! I am so excited! I am living my dream! Gotta get a biography to them as well.

Now I better get creating for them. What a great way to end a vacation right?

Thanks for letting me share my news with you.

Gotta get to work. Did you all see the Dirty Dozen creations this month? Pretty amazing stuff. Go check it out!

Saturday Sketch & More Samples with Alexa’s set

Apr 15, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

I made 2 more samples with Alexa’s set. They were done to be sent out with the contest. I wanted to make a Thank You, and a Hi one.

This one, the Thank You is for Tracey-

butterfly thank you

I love pink and black, and wanted to use the butterfly from Alexa’s set. I used Pebbles pearlescent pastels to color the butterfly. I then filled in the hearts with liquid pearls. Such a cool item I rarely use. Gives it that extra dimension and shimmer. They are hard for me to get an “even” distribution when you squeeze it out, so I think I need to practice more! LOL!

I then used my Sakura glitter pen to draw the flutter trail.

Had to use my Sprite Prima’s!

The ribbon is from Jody’s ribbon share.

The circle with the flower and thank you sentiment is Lizzie Anne Designs Funky Floral.

Cardstock is by SU!- basic black, whisper white, pretty in pink. As are the black/pink brads.

This was the other one I did

alexa hi

This inspiration was from the decorative chipboard I had from K & co. Its called Anastasia’s Attic. I wanted to have sparkly flowers and leaves just like the chipboard. So I used my Funky Floral (again) and used heat & stick powder with some old retired SU! Glitter. The jewels in the center are by Heidi Swap.

The base is also a retired SU color- mauve mist. I layered Perfect Plum. They are similar in layout. I wanted the HI to be the focus of the card. I hope she likes it. I did this right before we left for Disney and time was not on my side. There are things I would do differently but Oh well. At least I got it done.

Thanks for looking-

Ident-A-Kid tags! Mytime style

Apr 15, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

So/ making these plastic “luggage” tags are HOT right now! Mine aren’t just for “fun” they are going to serve an important purpose! On the back of these tags I included vital info for each child. So they are my Ident-a Kid tags. I also have these plastic cards we had taken at the police station with their photos, info and fingerprints.

It has their name, DOB, ALLERGIES, height and weight, our names & cell numbers, hotel we are staying in, our address and doctors #’s. Alexa has a little more info as you can imagine, but its all important if someone found her and there was an emergency!

They will clip on the kids clothing. They will be in plain sight just in case the child forgets. I think you would want to look at it if you found a lost child.

 We have told our kids if you get lost, and can’t find us, find a Disney Character and show them your tag. Now I know there are personnel all through the park, and once we see what these people wear we will also take note. At my kids ages I think they will more easily remember to find a Disney character than a person. Especially Alexa who WILL NOT talk to anyone!

I got mine at Walmart- 12pk for $1. Im hoping we won’t need them for anything! But its better to be safe than sorry! My mom thinks there is too much info! What if someone kidnaps them! Well heaven forbid, but I really want every opportunity to be listed if they get lost to be found. Mothers!!!!

This place is HUGE, and although we have a one adult to one child ratio it can be crowded and things can happen. I know I probably sound insane, but Ive learned YOU can be THAT person!

Now about the tags-

Here is Alexa’s

alexa tag

She of course had to have her Alexa set and use the Groovy girlby MissyB Designs!!! I used Rhapsody designer paper by 3 bugs in a rug, Cardstock is SU! whisper white, orchid, Caribbean, and certain celery. The alpha’s on all the monograms are by Cuttlebug Red Tag alpha. My sakura glitter pen outline’s them for some “bling” Ribbon is by CardMaker.

Now here is Noah’s

noah tag

I got the Buzz Light Year stamp at Michaels. Used the image on the stamp to figure out the colors! Red, gable green, and Lilac.

And here is Amber’s

amber tag

She wanted Mickey and Minnie Mouse. This is a foam mount stamp from a set also bought at Michaels. Colored with markers. She chose the pink & black! She’s a natural I tell ya!

Thanks for looking!
