Melissa's challenge...

Good morning everyone! It's a new day and I have lots of fun work to do. Isn't it nice to use fun and work it the same sentence? I have a great job! I'm working on more 12 Days of Me kits today and hopefully I'll get them into my shop yet today too. I'm going to post them in sets of 10 at various times of the day in hopes that everyone can get a shot at them. I know the time zones and work schedules have prevented many of you from getting one. Hopefully the staggered times will help you out.
For the question about my photos below. Yes, I used a photo editing feature on my new IMac that blurs the background/edges of photos. Pretty snazzy huh? Gives a soft, romantic feel to photos. Have a great day everyone...and as always, thank you for visiting me. I saw a stamping friend, Maggie, at the girls' ballgame the other day. She said she starts her day with me every morning. I know a lot of you grab a cup of coffee and settle in with the blogs. I am so glad you visit me, I really really appreciate all of you wonderful, crazy ladies! Good morning Maggie!
Hello friends. I am back from the dentist and survived. Fun...no. Done....yes. Woohoo! The sweet Melissa Phillips has a beautiful photo for her fun Inspirational Photo challenge on her blog today. It is so soft and serene. Her photo comes from A Creative Mint blog. What a great new source for inspiration!
Here's my card I made using the photo for inspiration. I used the sweet new papers from Papertrey called Pretty Pastels. The Shimmery White cardstock is accented with that great purple sheet music I rescued from the music shop where Jordy takes guitar lessons. Vintage Buttons in purples and pinks were plucked right from my Valentine Inspiration Station. Sentiment and background on shimmer cardstock is from Giga Guidelines. Base cardstock is Lavender Moon.

Here's a pretty assortment of items I pulled from my Valentine stash. Ahhhh, so pretty to look at.
Be sure to check out Melissa's blog for more links and more fun projecst by more awesome friends! Thanks for the challenge Melissa. These are fun and inspiring!

Love the card but I love that last picture you took. Is that some type of photo vignette? Did you use a special software for it?

I going to try and hone in on my inner "Mish" and make some of your famous notebooks for my girls at MOPS. Had my jr notepads cut yesterday at Office Max. Very excited but they won't be as nice as yours! :) Your notebooks are awesome!

So soft and pretty, a bit of 'fairy dust' seems to have been sprinkled on it with the way it has been photographed. I love it all. And you also placed a beautiful flower on your card like Betsy.
