Merry Christmas & Happy New Year........

Well this will be my last post until early Jan 2009, as I will be on holidays with my family. Can't wait, only 3 more days of work left and then relaxation as the crazy season draw to an end. So have yourself a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Here are two cards that I have made for family;

I saw on splitcoast stampers a wonderful idea to stamp onto tiles. So off I went to a local tile shop and purchased some stone tiles to stamp on with stazon and then colour in the image with stampin write markers. To finish off, I sealed each tile with a spray on sealant and there you have it, a coaster, table cloth weight or even a something to hang on the wall. The first one is for my wonderful friend and up line, Kim as she love nativities.

This design was for the Jacob's teacher and the wonderful ladies in the front office who took care of Jacob throughout the year, with monitoring his blood sugars, supervising his injections and helping him when he had numerous hypos/hyper etc... whilst at school (Jacob was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes (type 1) on the 20th of April this year);

This design was for my wonderful and very supportive friends, that I could not have made it through the year without them. The photo does not show up very clear, but I have stamped French script onto the background to add more dimension;

Last of all is a Star album that I ran as a class and I must say myself that the embossed photo mats really bring it to life. I just love my cuttlebug and folders, if you don't have one get one!!!

Until next time,
Scrapin Mel

Love the tiles Mel, they look terrific. I have a child with type 1 diabetes also, so I know how grateful we all are for caring school staff etc.
