Many things to share!

Today, my sweet hubby and I celebrate our 20th Anniversary!  I know you're saying "but, Shellye, you look way too young to have been married that long" hehehe (I was only 10 when I got married *wink*)  The time has definitely flown by...whew!  We're not novices at this marriage thing, that is for sure.  Good times and rough times, and we're a stronger couple now because of all of the times.  
♥ So, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, Honey!  You are my rock and I Love You ♥

{ #3 Ally Scraps June Sketch}
I shared a couple of cards last week that I made using a single sketch from Ally Scraps...I'm so happy and honored to be the winner of their June Sketch Contest! I'll be putting the cute little "Beach Bum" paper pads from Fancy Pants to good use.
Thanks, Ally Scraps! 
I'll be working on a few Design Team projects over the next couple of days AND I'll try to sneak in an altered album to go up at Dot & Whimsy...I've had the design in my head for well over a week, but just haven't had the time to do anything with it. 
Also, my friends over at Absolutely Alter It are hosting a crop in a couple of weeks!  The girls are sure to have lots of creative challenges up their sleeves ;)
I've worked the last two nights, so lots to get done tonight before I turn in...see you all tomorrow!


  1. Your creations are beautiful! Congrats on being a stash girl! Can't wait to know u better :)

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut

Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
