I recently started randomly cutting miscellaneous die cuts with my Silhouette using the scraps in my drawer. I just put them into a cute little box and when I'm making a card or layout, and need a little something, I just scour through the box and find something that will work. It's really become a fun method for me and I find that I use things in ways I would have never thought to.

When we decided to get a dog, Doug and I had talked about the fact that we both had always wanted a Golden Retriever. If you know me at all, you know I have zero patience. I immediately started looking for a dog that would be available RIGHT then. I found a couple, but for whatever reason, another ad in the paper kept calling my name. I called and found out that yes, they did have puppies available, but they were only 3 weeks at the time, so they would not be available for several weeks. I asked, do you have a runt of the litter? That's the one I want. She was indeed, the runt of the litter at about half the size of her siblings. We went to meet her the following weekend and immediately knew this was OUR baby! The rest is history. She was born on May 1, 2009. I named her Daisy May and she was the most special, amazing dog I could have ever hoped for. She was meant to be a part of our family and we were so blessed to have had 2.5 years with her. She made me smile every single day, and warmed my heart by just being her.
It broke my heart when I took her to the vet. I thought we were going in for antibiotics, and I came home having to had said goodbye to my sweet girl for the last time.
I'll love you always, Sweet Dreams Baby girl. XOXOXO

here. If I had the time, I would've made this a hybrid project using the glimmermist and printing out the papers. It's such a fun Valentine Package.

For Colette's Journal, I started with an idea that I created in my Silhouette Studio Software. This is how I looked in my head. The weird looking thing on the top is a bow when it's folded.
I have used the Silhouette Studio software do "design my layouts" for all 3 circle journals. I like to use this method to get the scale right for the individual elements.
I will post my journal soon. It's still working it's way back to me.

If you are not familiar with a Circle Journal, here's how it works. You gather a group of special crafty friends and you each make a journal. Each person decides on a theme for their journal (or you could all do the same).
This particular journal was WhimseyGirl.blogspot.com 's journal. Her theme was a series of questions that each person had to contribute to her journal with their answers. She titled her journal "She Asked".
Kathryn Morrow's blog (WhimseyGirl.blogspot.com). She will show you not only her incredible work she put into the journal, but Colette's input as well.
Next up, I will show you what I put into Colette's journal.
