I can’t believe the holidays are just around the corner! I’ve started a Christmas shopping list, the fall decorations on my mantel will only be in season for a few more weeks, I’m obsessed with all the fun holiday crafts that I’ve seen on my favorite blogs and Christmas commercials are already on TV! It’s hard to believe it’s already November. Next weekend we are headed to yet another wedding… the last one of the year. In the holiday and wedding spirit, I thought I’d share a brag book that I put together of my own wedding photos! I have a few other wedding brag books that I’ll be sure to share soon, too! If you are looking for a custom brag book for a Christmas gift, be sure to let me know ASAP. I already have a handful of orders I’m working on… it is going to be a busy holiday season and it is only November 7!

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!!

I had a TON of fun with this project! Not only do I love photos, but I love baseball… it was a blast to put together two of my favorite things in an adorable shadowbox for Sydney to cherish for years to come!
These photos are from a Padres game this Spring. Sydney was able to go on the field and annouce a player on the San Diego Padres at the beginning of third inning — how cool!! She even was given the game ball!
Check back tomorrow for a super cute photo of Sydney opening her surprise shadowbox gift!

I recently put together this adorable 6×6 pre-made mini album for a high school friend’s mom’s birthday. The colors and design of this album uses paper and materials from the Embellish Spring Kit. I love the look and feel. It is romantic, yet modern. Perfect for a sophisticated, yet fun and cutesy album for a mom, best friend or grandma!
