HaPpY FaThEr'S DaY!

I am so blessed with my wonderful family!
We were able to be together for Father's Day yesterday.
This is the first time my brothers and my sister and I
 have been able be together in over 5 years.
That's my Daddy right there center-stage.
He is so proud of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren!
Here are two cards I made using Graphic 45 and Tim Holtz products ---

For my most awesome big brother...

...and for my wonderful father...

blessing on this Father's Day 2013,

Art Charms Swaps...and Give-Away

I've been in a few art charms swaps lately and wanted to share what I made...
This one was for the "It's All In The Numbers" Charm Swap
with the Art Charms Yahoo Group.

I also made this one as part of that swap.

And this one is another charm I made
since I was in two different groups in this swap.

This charm is from another charm from a swap I hosted -
"Variety Is The Spice Of Life"
on the All Things Tim Yahoo Group.

Here's the other side of it.

And here's another charm from that swap.
So now for a GIvEaWaY...

Just leave a comment for a chance to win this little charm.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
blessings, denise  :D

Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi --- Oh, My!

Great American Scrap Book Conventions
This past weekend I flew to Dallas to visit my sister ---
and attend The Great American Scrapbook Convention.
My main focus was to visit the Stampers Anonymous booth...
...where I got to see Wendy Vecchi.
I was privileged enough to have Wendy personally help me -
With picking out lots of Art Parts and Stamp Sets
as well as demonstrate her new embossing paste and stencils.
It is absolutely awesome - lots of possibilities.  :)

Then when I got ready to check-out (I spend way too much $$$!),
what a pleasant surprise...
Mario's son (left) and Mr. Stamper's Anonymous (middle) 
were there with the amazing Mario (right).

I was disappointed I didn't get a picture with Tim.
Every time I went by their booth, he was always demoing.
I learned lots about using his products and techniques.
If you haven't checked out their blogs - you oughta get on over there!

Have a great stamping and inking week!
