"IAY" I Appreciate You Gift from Jessica

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to share with you a gift that I received from my partner on "IAY" I Appreciate You group on facebook.  Each month we are partnered up with someone and we send them a gift to tell them how much we appreciate them.  Most of the time you do not know who your partners are.  They are people you have never met.  This is nothing like a RAK as you know who you are sending to in the RAK.  Anyone interested in joining our group, please ask to be approved into the group.  No one will be turned down.  It is a group with a bunch of wonderful and caring ladies.  I just wanted to share the video of what I received.  I just recently joined and this is my first month with the group.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.  I did have to hold back the tears but I think you'll get the intentions.  Thanks for watching and enjoy.

I used cardstock that has a woodgrain pattern, patterned paper from My Story (I think), some cut out flowers from patterned paper, bling, ribbon, and popped up certain areas to give it more dimension. He is our bundle of energy and loves to chew everything! I hope you enjoyed this and would love to hear some comments. I will be doing a blog candy giveaway for this hop.

Lindy's Stamp Gang Haul

Hello Everyone,

I finally did it.  I have hummed and ha'd over whether I should consider purchasing the Lindy's Stamp Gang products as I already have over 75 bottles of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists but with all that I was hearing I knew it had to be done.  I have yet to try them out yet as they only arrive about two weeks ago and have been busy with many other deadlines.  But I wanted to share with you the products that I did get.  I purchased quite a few of their "try me" kits and then also purchased one of their newest lines of Starburst sprays.  I also purchased 2 stamp sets from them.  One for me and one for a friend as an IAY(I appreciate you) gift.  If you haven't tried these products please check them out.  You won't regret it!!!!  Their website is:  Lindy's Stamp Gang.  Without further adieu, here are the photos.

Thanks again for stopping by.  Comments always welcome and encouraged!
