First off, hello and welcome to my Saturday blog post featuring the Scrap Factory program created by ScrappyDew.  This has got to be the all time favorite program of all the programs that I use.  Just can't get enough of building characters with accessories!

I have a confession to make.  I let time get away and thought I had another week before I needed to do my posting.  SURPRISE JANA!!!  You post THIS Saturday.  So this is what I came up with.   Meet THE BOB, also called my hubby.  But first the lyrics...

I knew that I have The Bob's birthday coming up soon on the 23rd of July.  I try to make him a unique card each year.  So for this year I actually made The Bob.  (i'm sure he will get a big kick out of this)  Lets see the pics...

This is my husband Bob.
This is my darling husband Bob!

I found this stamp at St. Vinnies.  Knew right away what I was using it for.
Now I am not quite sure if I will design the card with the background
on the outside or on the inside.
This is what a blue card would possibly look like.
So I have at least made a background and a BOB.  If you compare the pictures, I'd say I got pretty dang close.

I hope to have a 4th of July card for you next week.  Until then, Bright blessings, Jana

ps. I will post when I finish his birthday card.

Graduation 2016

Hello everyone!  Some exciting news just now.  

Seems just like yesterday, Michelle asking me to join the design team and write a blog. Well folks we are at 150 posts.  (that's 2.88 years) I couldn't have achieved this goal without all the help from ScrappyDew and all my friends.  I am very thankful to keep writing. 

OK now on to this weeks post.  It's graduation season around Oregon.  When Bob and I got together, there was a little 7 year old that was cute as a button.  She is now a gifted swimmer and graduating.  Gosh how time flies.  Here come the lyrics...

     Body-No Open Toes
     Outfit- Grad Suit Girl #1 (Graduation expansion pack)
     Accessory- Sunglasses
~My irreplaceable Silver Bullet 24" Pro cutter  
     Dear Sherri, will get in touch soon!  
~Prang Brush Pen Silver for edges
~Aluminium Foil for sunglasses
~Class ACT Tassel Toss 12x12 from TPC Studios
~Those items that someday I just might keep track of.

I must confess, I have used this expansion pack for graduation cards before.  But it is the BEST on in my humble opinion.  If you want to know a secret, usually the long hair is placed first and then starting with the arms and sleeves, all the leg pieces and last the body and then the face and last piece of hair.  This is the usual order for all the expansion packs ScrappyDew offers for Scrap Factory.   

So here is Molly in all her glory!  Congratulations!!

I just love the way the Silver pen brought out the
details in the gown.

The inside.  As you can see I foiled the phrase.
"The futures so bright, I gotta wear shades"  by Timbuk3

Always decorate the back.

The envelope.
I have to say this file has never let me down.  Molly loved it!  

Maybe next week I will have another post along the lines of Fathers Day.  Until then, Bright Blessings for the coming week, Jana.
