Eeekkk… I feel so special to share a tutorial on the Charity Wings blog with you! Best of all, there’s step by step instructions to create not (1)… not (2)… but (3) DIY Projects! And… a GIVEAWAY! Be sure to visit the Charity Wings blog and leave a comment to win a DIY Kit & DIY Project from Embellish Creative Designs.
I was introduced to Charity Wings (formerly Scrapbook Royalty) several years ago when I participated in the Survivor Crop, a charity event to raise money the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Then, I’ve learned more about their work when I joined the team to provide live streaming video from CHA Chicago. I had a blast with the Charity Wings girls! The Charity Wings mission is to help artists and crafters fundraise for their favorite charities. How cool is that? Be sure to check out what they are all about and how you can get involved! Their exciting work is made possible by great volunteers and supporters in the crafting community.
Here is a sneak peek of what you will see over on Charity Wings! Enjoy!

I absolutely love this!!! So many of the albums and photo-related gifts I create are gifts, I usually get to see the excitement from the gift-giver, but not always reactions from the person receiving the gift! Michelle was so sweet to capture an adorable photo of Sydney after she opened her shadowbox and share it with us! Thanks, Michelle! Sydney, I am so glad you love the shadowbox. It was SO fun to put together!!

Hope you had a great 4th of July! I had such a fun, carefree, relaxing weekend with friends and family – it was fantastic! We had a very successful bachelorette party for my little sister on Saturday. Between pool time, DIY facials and masks, fruity blended drinks, LOTS of food, a limo ride, goody bags, a lingerie cake (pics coming soon!), a fancy dinner, champagne, lots of free drinks, a sleepover and brunch… we had a total blast! We definitely made Lauren’s “last fling before the ring” a very fun, glamorous evening. Now, the countdown is on — Just 3 weeks until the big day.
July is always such a hectic month for me, plus the festivities of my sister’s wedding. I’m going to be SUPER busy, but it’s all very exciting! Next weekend: A friend from college’s wedding up in LA area, then the big OTL tourney on Sunday with my girls. The following weekend: a bridal shower for another friend, then packing up for CHA in Chicago with Charity Wings. The weekend after: Lauren & Matt’s Wedding! Woo hoo.
Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! Here’s a detail shot of a page in the summer mini album!
