Happy Holidays

Believe it or not, the holidays are approaching!
Most years I'm scared of even thinking of Christmas coming up so soon. This year I decided to embrace the idea by creating a fun holiday project!!

This is a book I made using my Punky Sprouts album with the new CRATE PAPER holiday line!
I used Helmar to adhere all the different embellishments!!
It's such a fun collection. Loved all the fun colors, stickers, and chipboard.

I'll be teaching this class at different stores!! Hopefully it will be at one near you!!!

I made a fun book within the book.

These are some of the pages that I created!!! I still need to add some journaling but it's almost done!!! Thanks for looking.

Treasure the moments project

As I've mentioned lately, I've been creating like crazy!!!!

This is my newest Punky Sprouts project that I made using my Junk In My Punk album with brand new Crate Paper. I love this line!!!!

I also used Shimmerz, Studio Calico, and Epiphany Crafts!

I love the Punky Sprout canvas flowers, they add so much to my book

This is my favorite picture of my beautiful niece and daughter together!

Check out that fun photo. It was made with the newest Canon printer!!!

Thanks for looking everyone!!!! I'll be teaching this one at different stores through out the country!!

This is me...

This is me...RAW!
I think everybody knows that I am an open book.
I am ME here, there, everywhere.
It's pretty scary but it's true.

I love these pictures of me...not because I'm hot or sexy...because really truly..
reality is...I'm getting old! LOL

Exhibit #1--the wrinkles
Check out all those wrinkles! You know what? I'm okay with them
The ones around my eyes just mean that I smile a lot!!
If that causes me to have even more wrinkles? So be it! LOL

I'm okay with having one of those "funny" faces. I have crazy features but it's okay.
I'm just me and there is no one else like me.

The real me is as clueless as can be! I say things that even make me wondering what the freak is going on in my head. LOL

The real me behaves like a child! I still watch cartoons with the kids and
could watch I-Carly all day long! My idea of a great trip is going to Disneyland!!

The real me LOVES to wear headbands! I wear one almost everyday!!
Secret: I even buy them at Gymboree and other fun kid places to find some that represent ME!

The real me is full of love for my friends and family.
I love knowing that they know that I would do anything for them.
You can call me or text me at ANY time of the day and night and I'll always answer for you!

The real me is full of flaws but I know I'm only human!
The people that are my REAL friends know that they could come and talk to me if they had a problem with them and we can just fix it and then it's all forgotten.

So yes...this is me. Take me or leave me.
YOU can always send me a text, email, or call me and it doesn't matter if we haven't talked in a day, week, year, or long. Either way...I'll always be here.

Hugs, Suzy West
Leave me a reply. I'd love to hear from ya!
