Court Jester Card

I made this card for a card request of Dustin Pike's. He is asking that readers send cards to him so that he may deliver them to this little gal, McKenzie. It is a very sad story, but one that will inspire you. Please check out his blog at By sending a card, you will also receive one or more digi images from Dustin. He is truly a generous and thoughtful individual! If you aren't familiar with his images at Dragon Doodles, you will fall in love!
Products used: Dragon Jester, DragonDoodles; Copics markers; Spellbinder Nestabilities; Crown brad, Creative Imaginations; Helmar Scrap Dots adhesive; and scrap paper, rhinestones, and ribbon from my stash. Inside reads: "Sent to bring a smile to your face!"

For those of you to whom I said I'd never get into bling, I take it all back! Notice all the bling! Lovin' it!

Easter Lay-out

Couldn't resist scrapping these pictures of my grandson hunting for eggs. It was a rather uneventful hunt due to the fact that he was the only individual under the age of 30 looking for plastic eggs. But, it didn't stop him from having a wonderful time!
The lay-out couldn't have been easier or faster. I used the Bo Bunny paper from the Chocolate Bunnies collection that I got from!

National Scrapbook Day!

Shared the weekend with good friends and managed to knock out quite a few cards and lay-outs. I have started sending cards to hospitilized children with cancerous brain tumors, and the time I had with fellow scrappers gave me the much needed encouragement to get these done! These are only a few! If anyone else is interested, please go to to find out more. A very worthwhile organization!
