A Safety Note from Sherri

According to Government Statistics, accidental drowning is the number one cause of death for children under the age of five in the USA. Pool Fencing is the safest choice to prevent this kind of tragedy.

Play it safe, install a pool fence. Have questions? Feel free to give Pool Guard Texas a call. We would love to answer any and all of your pool safety questions.

Glad you visited my blog. I have the ONCE UPON A TIME emphemera. I had a bit of trouble adding it as a download, so if you wouldn't E mailing me, I can send it very to you......

planting...I used the Emphemera that really looked like gardening...actually attached it to a tag, added some ferns and odd findings . I wanted to keep the look of aged and used buttons that I dipped in Bronze UTTEE

Ren fest...that Emphemera really spoke Renaissance to me so I got a page ready for when I go next week. We always dress so I had fun creating a dress on my page, and even added texture to the top layer! Added the clock and lots of small detail.

This one is DREAM and it is going to be a tag on my new Grandsons gift. I punches 3 sheets of paper and pieced them together, adding a bit of paint to enhance. I found the word dream on a greeting card and added it to the tag. Added a big blue box as a finishing touch!

My Anniversary is coming up in a few weeks and this Emphemera talked SweetHeart to me, so that is his card. I framed it 3 times and used a corner rounder. I also used a large deep edge punch on the edge.

This looked like a rock a by baby Emphemera a and made a beautiful Welcome Baby card.

Thanks for looking...E mail me any questions you have

Instructions for Halloween page

You can use any sheet of orange paper. I used all Martha Stewart new craft punches...with the any where on the page punch ,a spider web, I punched along the left border and down the bottom. I used Geckogalz Gothic papers (really cool Halloween paper) and filled in all the punched holes. I took Tim Holtz resist paper and cut a strip 4x 6 inches, and used the all around punch on it. To get the resist I used orange distress ink. I also cut the title from the resist paper. I took orange chalk and went around and enhanced the spider webs. I took the deep edge fence punch (MS) and used it for a strip on the bottom of my page. I matted my photo on black, using an all around the page spider punch, adhering that to a strip of resist paper. I then added spiders, cats and a witch cut from Cricut, curling the spider legs and witches hair. Reallyspooky!!!!!

Have fun, regards,
