I get by with a little help from my friends . . .

MAM April 1

Totally obsessed

with Junque Journals.

This is so out-of-the-box for me as I am a very structured person.

A rule follower.

A step-1, step-2, step-3 type of person.

But loving all things vintage


images, laces, fabrics, textures

I'm diving in.

A collector of all things scrapbooking,

(if you've been to Nancy-land you know what I mean)

I've received some beautiful images from my favorite sellers:


Karen Higgins



Ginny Nemchak

And play along with me on my Junque Journal voyage.

Taking a little break . . .

another wonderful collaboration of

MAM Feb 1

. . . when it's a flip album.

This is so easy and fun to create!

MAM Feb 1

You can create the same type of inter-active pages in a flip book as you can any other constructed mini.

MAM Feb 2

This flip was created with the help of gorgeous Blue Fern Studios papers.

The fussy cut bird (above) and window (below) make great side-pockets.
