RAKS and Tag Party

Aloha everyone,
Well I certainly had a wonderful time at the tag party hosted by Denise Nibling, a fun crafter and gracious hostess.  Everyone there was so much fun, the food was delicious and of course the tag making was the best.  Not only that, take a look at the RAKs I received:
See the red velvet cake pops? Mmmm
We made a variety of tags.  Linda and I did vintage themed tags while Cami, Kyoko, Irene, Jenny and Denise chose the Christmas themed tags.  Checkout these beautiful tags:
Beautiful  huh?
Here's some closeups of these tags:
Jenny's is a gift-card holder tag
The inside of Cami's tag
Incidentally, if you're looking for mine, it's posted in yesterday's post.
I had a great time tagging with this fun and crazy group.  I can't wait to do this again; I hope I get invited again!

Tag Sample and Kits

Aloha everyone,
Time is just flying by so quickly! Thanksgiving is next week, Christmas decorations are everywhere and I haven't started Christmas shopping yet! Yikes!!

I have a tag party to go to this morning and I wanted to share my tag that I made for the group. 
Front of tag
Back of tag
The paper I used for the tag is called "French Quarters" from Quick Quotes.  I think I was drawn to this cardstock because of the name.  You see, I'm going to visit the French Quarters with some friends in January.  Not only that, I'm going to visit a wonderful blogging friend, who lives near there, for the first time.  I'm so excited about that!

Sorry, back to the tag.  The crown and Eiffel Tower stamps are from Stampin' Up.  The leaf punch is quite old and I don't remember the brand.  The flower on the front I made myself and the fleurette in the back is the Tim Holtz mini die.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoyed yourself.

In Honor of My Mom

Aloha everyone,
My mother transitioned January 1, 2009, her birthday was November 1.  I spend her birthday thinking of her and all that she did for me and my siblings.  I think of how she loved her work and how intense her energy was that she put into her work.  But she also played well too.  She loved going to Las Vegas, she loved her music, especially Hawaiian music.
It takes me a while to get out of a little slump that I fall into on her birthday.  So I thought I would do a digi scrap page dedicated to her.  Just something quick, and it did get me flowing into the creative direction again.
