June Wedding!

Hello all, we've been on vacation for a little over a week now. During the first week, we attended my niece's wedding. My husband Bill was the photographer and I thought I'd share a couple his photos from the wedding.

A special thanks to Susan for house sitting and Jillian for keeping our lawn watered. My next post will include some photos from our visit to the Oregon coast.




My niece Ariana and her husband Jared. Congratulations!

Sticky Note Tote with Handmade Three Dimensional Stickers


I purchased this Sticky Note Tote ( #134621) designed by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette On-line store and I am thrilled with how it turned out.


I modified the file slightly by using the slice tool on the handle and did an internal offset to create the handle layer. I made the three dimensional sticker on the front. Below is a video I filmed last year explaining how I made the sticker.
