I met with a friend in Albany last week and we spent some time shopping and creating. I had previously won some Graphic45 Secret Garden paper and used this time to create some spring albums. The first album is a Kaisercraft album that I've had in my stash for a long time. I played around with some crackle technique and metallic paint and patina...this paper is Fab!!
The second album is from Maya road; thought this little garden gate would again be perfect for a spring album....I'm thinking of putting pictures of the flowers from my garden on this one...like??
I'm actually working on a third album...yes, I know...but I'm not sick of the paper and I still have more to use!
I know! It's taking me forever to get this mermaid done. But hey, gotta work when inspiration strikes. I added texture to her hair with caulking and then a base coat of paint. I'm much happier with her progress. Thinking of incorporating some fabric as well...she'll let me know what she needs....

One of my dear friends, who also happens to be my neighbor, is moving away in one week. Not like she is moving across town, she is moving out of State. How do you say goodbye to someone that has been part of your life for 10 years ???
We are having a small, intimate gathering at our house tonight. Most of our creative friends will be here to say goodbye and extend well wishes to her. I made this cake in her honor...I know, I said small gathering, didn't I?? Well, made with lots of love.

I made this album for a wonderful woman at work who is retiring (so jealous!). I love this paper line and normally would hoard it like so many others....but she deserves the best! I'm so glad that I broke down and used it...I think she is going to love this!
BTW - I used the Kathy Orta gate fold tutorial, with my own dimensions for this album
