~Hello Sunday, hello sunshine....~

Good morning friends :)

It's Sunday and I am knee deep this week in sewing.
But I took a break to make this layout.This is a 100% Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive LO!~
I hope you can see it, I dug out my tattered angels glimmer mist spray
and used it to coat the chipboard, it's so shimmery and pretty.
Helmar partnered with Scrap-tastic again this month
and this is a LO I created with come of the products she sent over.
Most of the papers are Pink Paislee.
I had considered making it into a door hanger, but
at the last minute I went with the layout instead.

This is why I have been quiet this week,
for those of you who don't know I keep
a full time sewing business running through the year
Spring/summer is my busy time
I have been making sundresses like this one....
AND swimwear like this one.
I love this polka dot swim dress top.
If you know anyone XL-1/2X who might want it, let me know.

It's funny, I wasn't always a scrapbooker,
but I always have been a seamstress.
They go hand in hand, but sometimes time
is not on my side with the sewing AND scrapping! LOL

Hubby is working today and getting us some OT! WOOHOO!
That's going to pay for my trip to CHA!

OH and for anyone interested I will be posting pictures during
CHA this year!!!!!! A fun new edition to the blog.

~Have a beautiful Sunday~
~Thanks for popping by~

OMG! I love the swim dress! You should make them and sell them! So cute. I have a friend that would look so cute in that! Thanks for sharing.

Pinky said...

Hi Raven, I do sell them, I have sold over 3000 of them now. Now I sell them straight off of Facebook, because its easier and I can do custom work.
