Dustin's place. Here is what he has asked us to do:
Donate 5 or 6 Cards, does not have to be Christmas, some others might be good so that people can use them for the rest of the year as well. Send them to myself or the hospital once I get the address I will let you all know. Cards can be the same, can be different, they are asking...
"It is helpful if the donor includes the cost of materials for each item. Our goal is to price items at market value. The quality of work, the cost of materials, and the colors influence the price.
And just for participating this is what he is going to do:
"Just for playing along I will send each person a download link for 30 images once I receive the cards. And one lucky random winner will receive a hand sculpted Doodle Christmas Dragon ornament... (photo coming soon) IF you live out of the US and you are the chosen random winner I will still send the ornament to you. Don't worry about postage, this is open to everyone...

The photos are matted from the solid side of the Gretel Gingerbread cardstock. The photos are 4x6 and I painted the chipboard swirls in the cranberry. Where the photos are attached by the brads, I punched holes on each side and laced with ribbon for added effects and demension.
This is the second photo of this layout. I just hated the first and it didn't show the colors of the paper and the phots all that great. However, this is my entry for the flourish challenge. I just love Cosmo Crickett... And who couldn't love these fun pictures. This is Raegan and Madi... aka "Cowgirls" as you can see they love their horses...

1. Zutter Bind-it-All Cover
2. 2 Pieces of Bazzle Card Stock
3. a scrap piece of bandana material
4. a Bohemia transfer title rub-on by Mind's Eye
5. a expoxy sticker by Creative Imaginations
6. Mod Podge
I took the brown card stock and glued to the cover and placed under my glass mate for about 1 hour so it could dry flat. Next I choose my photo and then found a coordnating paper. The scrap piece of material was just for accent and texture and depth. You could use other papers if you'd like. I then found accents to go along with what I wanted. This project took me about 1 hours (with drying time).

I guess before I get started in all this hoop-la, I out to start with a story and how all this scrapbooking craze for me got started. In October 2007 my cousing came down from Michigan and brought several items for me. The First was two scrapbooks that she had created for me about my Faleris Family and "My Bridge" that for years seemed like a childhood fantasy that I had dreamed up.
During her visit she and I began a book of her trip to Texas and she began to teach me how to scrapbook. While here in Texas, I took them to Oklahoma City and showed them some sites. My future sister in law was very gracious to take the day off to show my family around town and at the end of the day she had a suprise for me. She had went to a Scrapbook Garage sale at her local scrapbook shop in town the weekend prior. While there, she ran across a steal on a Creative Memories Bag and called her brother and told him he was buying it for me. Along with the bag, was a BoyScout Album for my son who is in scouts for me to scrap, some papers and odds and ends. She laughs because she said I looked at her like..."How will I ever fill this up"! Well, it is; along with several other bags. To say the least, it's addicting....
