A New Look & JustRite

Happy Labor Day! I hope your last big weekend of "summer" is going well. Me...well, I'm staying nice and comfy in my central air, as it's a hot one out today. I have been getting the kids' file cabinet ready for their school work etc., and going through last minute lists with them. They seem to be pretty excited about school.

On to bloggy stuff now. If you're a regular to my blog, I'm sure you've noticed a new look here. I have been toying around with my banner and colors a little here and there, and haven't really liked anything. I finally decided to head over to Mama Dini's Digi-Sig Diner, as she has made me some fantastic watermarks in the past. When I read Dina's August 13th post, I decided that NOW was the time to let the pro take over...and she sure did!!

Isn't it a beauty?

Dina also made me a wonderful background and some watermarks!! All in record speed, and was such a delight to work with!! Thanks so much, Dina!! You ROCK!! Use the link above, or the button below, if you would like to check out Dina's site.


I had a chance to do a little paper crafting, and made a card with my new Ambrosia BasicGrey paper. I didn't want to cover up much of that pretty pattern, so I just cut the edge wavy with my 12-inch Decorative Trimmer from Creative Memories. The stamping was done with my JustRite Stampers kits.

Stamps: D.I.Y. C-45 Monogram Stamp & Storage Box (frame), Special Occasions Font
Card Stock: Basic Gray, Naturals White, Tangerine Tango, Ambrosia (BasicGrey)
Ink: Basic Gray
Accessories: Circle & Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, 12-inch Decorative Trimmer (Creative Memories), Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon, Scotch foam tape



Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I appreciate your visit!!
