I have dabbled a little with digital scrapbooking. I like the concept of being able to make wonderful, graphic scrapbooking pages without having to buy all the "stuff"! The other day I found a great site called The Shabby Shoppe. "It is a DIGITAL scrapbooking site featuring high quality, downloadable products for both digi and paper scrappers." I took that straight from the site. There are video tutorials and free downloads to help you follow and do what they show you in the videos. It is fun and addicting. I really want to learn more. Following the tutorial I made the "page" below. Check it out when you have time and let me know what you think. Leave your comments below!

I found this great blog the other day. I am not sure how I got there. It was a link from one blog to another and then to another. It is Bakerella. She enjoys baking and creating sweets and shares what she does on her site. She makes the cutest "cake pops" (like lolipops but with cake inside) and tells you how to make them. This picture is just one example of some that she has made. She also makes cupcake pops and has done cute things for Easter. You can read how to make them by clicking here. I am planning on making some - maybe for a girls' camp fundraiser coming up. If I do I will take pictures and post them! I hope you check it out.

I made these sweaters for a woman at work who is having twin baby girls this summer. I made them in the six month size so that they could wear them when it gets cold here. I am sure when they are born nobody will be thinking of putting them in sweaters! The Mother-to-Be loved them and said she would keep them forever. I made her promise to take pictures of them wearing them. If she does, I will post them to show how they fit. One of these days really soon I will get a better set up for taking pictures. Of course, you can order one to be special made for your little cutie in any color up to size 24 months. Only $30.00. Email me or order it from my Etsy page - alanemarie.etsy.com.
