A 12x12 layout. Really?

Can't remember when was the last time I make a 12x12 layout.
When I saw my blog friend Sharon showcased her layout for Challenge Yourself, I wrote in her comment section that I need to find time to make one, but days turn into weeks and week after week, no action from me : (
Well, it is better late than never, I finally did, but then I forget about it until I saw Sharon's comment at my blog yesterday, I suddenly remember that I need to post that layout and it is pretty close to the deadline, so here it is......

The layout out for the challenge at




KEEP

CALM

AND

LOVE YA!






die cut frames



and other details




I had fun and should do more of these layouts, the problem I guess is storage, besides storing them in the big plastic boxes and stack them up in the garage, any suggestion on how you store you 12x12 layout with bulky embellishment?

Our Beautiful World 111 ~ Stairs

This week at



The word picked by Manuela is...

STAIRS

Right away I thought of the spiral staircase at Loretto Chapel, Sante Fe, unfortunately, I lost all of my photo folders few years ago when my old laptop crushed on me, I managed to find this from one of the blog post I shared with my family when I traveled ....


 I do have a recent and funny one to share for the word STAIRS


one I saw at the poker table, chips that stacked like spiral stairs, still amazed by how this guy did it, of course, I had to ask for a photo.

Come share your photo and story with us at

Card for student

The Challenge:


I made a card for my student, using one of my older punches from Martha Stewart, I used to get a lot of MS punches when I started card making.


in fact, I also used 2 other die cuts, can you spot them?


school is starting soon here in Vegas, this week is packed with teacher's meeting and orientation, busy busy.....
