Flowers & Blooms with Meljen's Designs

The theme for the sixth Meljen's Designs challenges is Flowers and Blooms. Although you are not required to use a Meljen's Design image, the new "In the Garden" release would be perfect. This release will be available in the digi shop today.

If your read my other post today, you know that I was in a bit of a creative funk this week end. I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up some new paper. Sometimes you just need some new goodies to play with to get you going.

Please be sure to join us for in our Flowers & Blooms challenge. You can get the details on the challenge and see more inspiration from the DT HERE.

Be sure to also see my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff post today.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
