Titles sure are hard to come by lately....

WOW!! Was I tired after spending a few hours in my classroom yesterday!!! I was able to clean out quite a bit and organize as well. I still feel like I have a long way to go but I'll get there. I'm looking forward to today because my co-teacher is coming in and we're going to lunch. I haven't' really talked to her all summer so it will be great to catch up!!

Here's a few crafty projects I've done...

The first card uses this week's sketch from Just Us Girls

Ippity - Devoted
Can you tell that Devoted is one of my favorite sets???

Here's one more -
Unity - Hodge Podge of Happiness

I hope if you love Ippity as much as I do you'll check out Aletha's Sales Blog to get your sets!!

Don't forget to check out and join the current Get Hippity With Ippity challenge at The Latte Lounge. You need to be a member at TLL but hey you might as well join anyways because it is one great place to hang out!!!

The rules…
•You DO NOT have to use an {ippity} or Unity stamp, but if you do, you are entered in the drawing twice. (We use the “random generator thingy.”) DO let us know what stamp set you used in your project.
•You need to stay with the current theme. You can create any project you like, card, ATC, tags, layouts, mixed–media, altered art, etc.
•You can enter just once.
•You need to post in the discussion area at GHWI and in your TLL gallery.
•When posting to your gallery on TLL use the keyword/tag IPPITY#4. If you post other places on the web, please use GHWI#4.
•You will also need to HAVE FUN! That’s what we are here for.

If you follow all these guidelines, your prize is an {ippity} stamp set of your choice!

Speaking of The Latte Lounge  - they are having a Design Team call!! It's a great chance to join a wonderful group of crafters.  You'll find the info here!!

Thanks so much for coming by!!

Blessings and Hugs,

  4. these are absolutely gorgeous, melissa! thank you so, so much for your sweet comments and prayers. you are one super special lady!

  5. I am loving the look of the stamps in color... so often, I see stamps in just black ink, and your version, in soft pastels, is really soothing and creative!
    It's so nice to see you creating just because... sometimes, I think we should all follow your lead and just do what "feels" right!!
    Kudos to you!!!

  6. YOU are so clever - I love BOTH of these! Such fun use of materials and your beautiful talent! THANKS for sharing all of the above, with Just Us Girls! xoxoxo!
