It's a Charmed Life!

Mom...we love you for all you have done!

Mom's everywhere continue to inspire and uplift us. Even if it's not your own mom, the ability to nurture has moved women to reach out and help others, and there's probably a Mom out there who has help to guide and mold a piece of you into who you are.

Please take this Challenge to heart and create any project you can think of using Charms, Bling and other Embellishments

We love all of you Moms out there. Thank you for loving us back, even if we were less then 
'Charm'-ing to deal with!

"You're beautiful - no matter what they say" - one of my favourite songs and message to all the ladies out there! Always remember that you are precious and doing a fantastic job at what you do and at how you do it! 



Hello Beautiful....It's a Charmed Life is our next Dare Challenge 
on the Emerald Creek Supplies Dare Blog. 
So let's honor our mom's or the ladies in our life and let them know 
how beautiful and charming they are



It's all about the ladies for this challenge. So I decided with Mother's Day right around the corner, that I would create a fun Mother's Day Easel Card. To all the Mother's out there, Happy early Mother's Day!


Challenge is all about ladies... I created this journal spread keeping this brave lady in my mind, she designed her own life, she is a charming lady!



The time is flying by it seems and Mother's Day is just around the corner again and it's time for a new challenge at Emerald Creek Dares!! I love spending Thursdays sharing some amazing Emerald Creek products and incredible inspiration from the Design Team, with all of you who stop by. At the end of my post there is a more personal note about my Mom and missing her and a poem my son wrote for her service.



Some of my favorite memories and worst memories with mom are in the garden. (sometimes weed pulling felt like an excessive and endless chore) but harvesting was always the best time. So a garden Lattice Card seemed like the perfect piece to create. Pop over to the post for a little more details


Before you check out Julia, please note this is her last post with us. Julia will still be around lots but make sure you let her know how much you have enjoyed her creations. I flash back to that first day that Julia snapped a picture of her going through the demo stamps to prep for her frst ever DT submission. She continues to amaze me in all she does and we wish her well as her art and teaching continues to unfold.

Charming Ladies Vintage Canvas
My final project for the Emerald Creek Design Team is a mixed media
canvas designed around a couple of thrift store photo I had in my stash. This is dedicated to all the charming ladies of the Emerald Creek Design Team who I was fortunate enough to work with over the past few months. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Today we send Diana off with warm wishes on the new adventures in her life unfold! 
Please pop by her Blog and let her know how much you enjoyed her projects.
