Meet and Greet

In The Making Designs debuted a beautiful new line this week called "Meet and Greet". It includes a gorgeous paper pack, a fab set of labels and some lovely word art. I really like how masculine it is--just perfect for a layout featuring Cale. It is so rare that I am able to capture him on "film" at all these days so I like to scrap whatever pics I get. He is WAY too cool to pose for me anymore. This is one of the first pages I have scrapped that focuses on an aspect of our lives that is not necessarily pleasant. We're going through a bit of a rough time with Cale right now and he has essentially been grounded for the entire month of March. It has not been easy, but I know we'll get through this phase and back on the right track. I know it's important to scrapbook both the good and the not-so-good of our everyday lives, and I think it will be interesting to look back at years from now.

Right now, I'm working feverishly on pendants for The Global Orphan Project! Every year they have a big fund raiser at Mother's Day featuring the art of one of the girls they help. This year they selected me to make glass tile pendants using a beautiful flower drawn by Viola, a sweet 13 year old in Haiti. I am so honored to be a part of this project and am excited to get the word out about this amazing organization. You can learn more about them here. (One of the logoed scrabble tiles I make for them on a regular basis is on the home page as a "featured item".) Such a great cause! I'll let you know when the Mother's Day pendants become available. Here's a sneak peek at Viola's stunning artwork (aren't the colors she used incredible?):

I love that you're documenting both the good and bad in your life....isn't that what life is all about anyway. The layout is very beautiful!
