I am such a lucky girl to have Holly as a friend. Not only is she just a super sweet, very cool person to know and hang out with, she is amazingly talented and so generous with her talents.
On this past Sunday she met me and the family over at Forest Park for some fun family shots. While there, she borrowed Anna for some extra shots she was wanting to do, this time modeling a cool winter coat. Anna was thrilled to oblige, of course!
If you are in, near, or can get to St Louis and need photos taken, you really need to contact Holly. I simply can not rave about her enough.
Well, it is with great sadness that I post this photo, as it is my final official Sweetwater project. I absolutely love and adore Sweetwater products and the ladies who make Sweetwater happen. They are truly some of the nicest people I have ever met in the scrapbooking world. I have never understood how they were able to do all that they do at the pace that they do.
Although my term with them has come to an end, I know that my serious additiction to their products will go on. They have some very fun and exciting things in the works, especially for the monthly Sweetwater Express club. You can find out more on their site here.
Here is a little fun I had recently with one of the new Prima Paintables. I first painted it with watercolor pencils and then decorated each snowflake with markers, glitter pens, and gel pens. I added Crackle Accent and Prima Say It With Crystals centers to each. I loved to color as a girl so having these papers is like heaven! I get to color again and call it "work"!
I don't consider myself much of a stamper. I think I am too fussy about the image coming out just right, especially if I am going to put the image directly on my project. But, you know, with these new Build A Frame stamps from Prima, I couldn't resist trying. I LOVE the images from the IOD/Prima lines and was so crazy excited when I learned they would be available in stamps. On the frame with the "d" I added a stamped image from one of the stamp sets and colored it with chalks. Everything you see here is Prima, except for the rub-on alphabet which is from Scenic Route (and is my absolute most favorite rub-on alpha ever!).
