Latest Projects...

As promised here are pics of my button trees. I plan on doing a few more but need to find more pins. Michaels keeps running out on me!! Think I'll have to place an order online through Joanne's.....

My 1st tree. Not too shabby I guess. I found the topper at Wal-Mart for $1.27(??). It says "Wish" not wash as Joe says it does!!

Of course since I had gone crazy ordering buttons I had a bunch of these lime green & thought they would look cute paired up with pink. The topper is from AC Moore that I found when I wasn't looking-don'tcha love that?!

This is one of the LO's that's been sitting on my desk since BEFORE Thanksgiving!! Not the greatest pic but I did it quick before we watched Harry Potter last night!


Here's the final LO of Gianna's birthday album. I had to include her actual birthday that we spent at Disney World. Finally stuck everything to the LO & Yes I realize that the princess over her name is crooked. Will have to see if I can fix that. I left the label empty but it will have the date before I slide it into her album.

I tried posting these to 2Pea's but it's not letting me because it's too big of a file. **SIGH** So I'll have to take the pics in a smaller size **SIGH** & manipulate it so the pixels are no bigger than 600x600. **SIGH** They kind of fixed the "BOS" problem --thanks Crystal for letting me know--now I have the LO's but not my favorite scrappers! They're getting really annoying changing things to make it better but end up making it more comfusing...but I'm loyal despite it all...or a sucker.

LOVE the button trees!!! and what great little toppers for them. i just picked up a knob-type thing that i want to paint and add to the top of mine. i leave it out year-round in my studio since the colors match. i just wish i had more patience to make a few more. lol!

love the layouts too! the princess one is too cute!

Those button trees are amazing! The layouts are great too! I love the birthday princess one with all the bling. It's great! If you just open your picture in Paint if you have a PC and go to Image then Stretch/Skew then do 40% in stretch for both the horizontal and vertical it will save you the trouble of taking more pics. Hope that helps.

Go to the Start button, then to Accessories, then you should have Paint in the accessories.

love the button trees and the layouts...if you post your layouts on your blog, right click and save it to your computer and see if the file is then small enough to post to 2 peas (i'm so annoyed with them too and what's the whole point of the blogs and top 10 and viewed stuff...UGH!). i'm ashamed to say that i got stuck on HP book 5 when it first came out and haven't finished it yet, due to countless tries. (and i own all of them!) loving the twilight series. i'm in the middle of the second one...they suck you in, so only start when you actually have time to kill. happy new year's!

Thank you so much for posting such great feedback on 2peas. It means a lot to see it and it makes me feel good about what I've done. Thank you!
