Fiskars Website Project: Altered Camera Case

Aloha mai! 
Hey I wanted to share with you a project I created for the Fiskars Crafts Website.  I am so honored to have had this chance to create and share an Altered Camera Case and Mini Album Set.  A huge Mahalo (thanks) to Fiskateer Legend May and Fiskars for this opportunity.  You'll see that I've included instructions so you can create your own album set, how cool is that?! 

This month I had the pleasure of reviewing a new scrapbook "tool" for jump starting your Scrapping Mojo, the Scrapbooker's Creativity Kit by Claudine Hellmuth.  I ended up finding that it really did stretch my creativity in ways I didn't expect, as you can see from the two wall hanging quotes I created.  You can find the full review here along with tons of different projects inspired by it.  

Did you know that I ask a question of the day each and every day at Scrapfriends?  The questions are created to help you generate topics to scrap about and we also learn a lot about each other and ourselves in the process.  Check it out, I'd love to learn more about you!  

Take care and have a wonderful week, thanks for celebrating with me! 
Aloha nui!!

March Sketches

Aloha mai, 
Thanks for visiting!  

The other day my 12 year old son decided that he wanted to help create a sketch for my bi-monthly sketch posting on Scrapfriends.  I think he did an awesome job don't you?  You can guess what type of electronic equipment he's into (cameras)  He's been saving up for a DSLR, and had to include this in his sketch LOL.  He did this sketch by himself, no help from me.  

And below is sketch I created for the second March Sketch.  Remember that you can take what you like from the sketch and leave the rest.  Or build on the framework of the sketch,  Make it your own!    I hope you enjoy it.  (the layout above was created from this sketch for my ScrapFriends Product review of Claudine Hellmuth's "The Scrapbookers Creativity Kit." ) I'll post more projects later. 

A hui hou,
