Giveaway Winners & Provo July!!

July 25, 2008

First off...thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post about Casey. I really truly appreciate it. The doctor that performed the echo said he saw nothing abnormal! Praise the Lord...I was more worried than I even let myself believe about this. They are still going to send the test info to a cardiologist just to be on the safe side. But, we are all breathing a sigh of relief on this one! are my radomly picked winners of the SEI and Cosmo Cricket paper packs! I wish I had the money to send each and every person a little RAK!

Please email me your address information to jnllawson at (You get spam if you type out the entire email address- just an FYI as to why I typed it out completely).

And last but not least, I have my July projects for Provo Craft to share today! First up is a layout about Casey's Christmas present last year. I used the Solutions Street Signs cartridge for the title, and the Solutions Indie Art cartridge for the bullseye cut out. I like how it kind-of looks like a present as well!
For this card I did a combo of Cuttlebug and Cricut. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on white cored cardstock, and then sanded it a little to really bring out the embossed dots. I also used the Textile Hearts Combo diecut/embossing folder to make the heart accent. The embossing is very subtle because I decided to use patterned paper for it. Lastly, I used Opposites Attract cartridge to spell out "friends" in the sentiment. My last project is this cute little floral topiary. I used the Walk In My Garden cartridge, and cut out 13 flowers with middles from each of the three different sheets of patterned paper. I placed the flowers randomly all over the styrophome ball, and then filled the rest in with all the middles of the flowers that were cut out as well. Then I accented with buttons and rhinestones, and put it all together. Such a cute little project...I like how it turned out!

That is all for me right now! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
