Hope all is well with you this Sunday Morning. I'm trying to keep cool in this hot weather. I think I may have to turn on the air conditioner for the first time this year. Our ceiling fans have been great but I don't think they will handle this 90 degree weather. I'm still having fun with the kids until Jordan goes back to college. I thought that it being summer the drama of a pre-teen would lay off for awhile but I was wrong. They still find some way to argue about things and they are not even seeing each other. When will it end? (NEVER LOL)

We have a new designer that we are featuring this week and a theme that we haven't had. That's as long as I have been here. Our designer is A Day For Daisies. The theme we are using is "Add Some Lace". I love lace but finding some in different colors can be hard. I know I have had to dye some before just to get the color I wanted. I found my lace that was in my stash when I made photo albums. The name of my image is called Sitting In A Globe. I wanted to figure out how to make a shaker card with this one but didn't know how to do one so big. I will have to put that on my list of things to learn. (I do actually have a list) I'm sure you would like to know what the prize you working for this week. Here it is:


Let me show you the card I made with the image called Sitting In A Globe. I am trying to do different things with the face so I'm sorry if it didn't come out that great.

I hope you enjoy the card and my attempt of my coloring of the face. Let me remind you again that Our design team has made their own cards with lace and I think you will love to see their work. Their blogs are on the side of my blog. Have fun with this challenge and I will see you next Sunday for a whole new challenge. Have a great week!!

It is Stampaganza at Close To My Heart for the month of June. This is the best time to buy your stamps for this great campaign. Here's how it works. You buy two My Acrylix stamp sets and you get the third set free of equal of lesser value. When you buy the two, Close To My Heart will go with the lower of the two stamp sets for you to choose from. We have stamps sets that have letters. The letter A is the lowest price stamp set we have and the letter E that is our highest set. You can have a savings of up to $29.95 according to witch sets you buy. 

Our stamp sets are clear and you can place them on your project where you want it because you can see through it. If the stamp didn't come out as dark as you wanted it, you can line up the stamp and redo it. The sets come in plastic envelopes for safe keeping. Here's a picture of what the stamp sets look like.

I have been with Close To My Heart and have sold alot of our Acrylix stamps. The stamp is easy to use and very easy to clean. If you loose the stickiness of the stamp you just put it under water and it will start working again. 

If you would love to see all the different sets of stamp, just visit my site at www. If you decide that you want to participate on this great deal you can shop right of my site. If you have any questions just let me know. Of course, I have a quota that I'm trying to beat this month. Don't feel obligated to buy because of my quota. I hope you take advantage of this offer. You can get more for your buck with this campaign.

Welcome to Monday's feature here at My Grafico. Hope your morning is starting off well. Not to bad in Ohio. The weather is great. My daughter is done with school. My son and husband are done with college this quarter. We are spending some quality time together but my son isn't into to well. Here's to old for that stuff. You have to spend time with the young children because they eventually grow up and move on. I'm hoping for some great moments this summer and some great scrapbook layouts to.

The set that we are using this week is from designer Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. What we are using this week is Elegant & Shabby School Scrapbook & Card Papers. These papers are terrific for any year of school and even college pictures. There is even a paper that looks like a music sheet. Let's look at the set for yourself.

Here's the card that I made with this set. The papers are so neat that it was hard to pick one. Once I picked one my idea was there. Let me show you the card that I made.

I hope you like what I did with the paper. It was hard to find graduation stuff at this time of the year so I used some of the stuff I have to finish my son's layouts. I'm sure the graduation stuff will be back soon. So if you have a graduate this year, Congratulations to them from me. Have a Wonderful week and I will be back for next Monday's Challenge.

Good Morning to everyone!! Hope is all well with you this beautiful Sunday Morning. I actually woke up and seen sunshine with the birds singing. I also had a wonderful Saturday. My daughter is out of school now and soccer has ended. So yesterday, me, my husband and my daughter sat and watched movies all day. It was actually nice just taking a day and doing absolutely nothing. I did have to take time out to fix dinner (Blahh) My son, of course, wasn't home and when he was he stayed in his room. He's to old for these things lately.

Well, Robyn's Fetish is no square this week. I tried to be funny. (HA HA) Our theme this week is making a card that is not square or rectangle. This was a challenge for me but it was fun trying. I have to admit that I had to look into how to make one but found alot a neat cards but knew I wouldn't have time to try and get one of those done. In the future I will have one on here after I learn how to get one made. We used an image from The Paper Shelter. I chose a little girl that was titled A Quiet Moment. She was so cute and she looks peaceful. Let me tell you the great prize you will win from The Paper Shelter.


What an awsome prize. I would love to win this prize. There are great images you can get from her store.

Here is the card that I used with the Quiet Moment Image.

I used a color that I normally don't use and I think it tuned out great. I will have to use green more often. I'm trying to do things that I would never do. The design team also made cards that were not square or rectangle. I would check their blogs out and see the great cards that they made. Hope you enjoyed the card and post. I will see you next Sunday. Have a Wonderful Week!!
