Beautiful...EAD Design Team Blog Hop

This is a super-exciting day for me as it is my very first
post for EAD Designs and it just happens to be the....

If you've reached my blog by way of
then you are in the right spot indeed!

If not, this is a great time to pop over to the
and get started for a chance to win a
pretty fabby prize!

As I created this first project, I was truly inspired by
my daughter Mallory.  
She is a beautiful daughter and a wonderful
mother and I thought about her all the while I was making this card.

We all know that cameos are so trendy right now and I aDoRe the 
'Mini Cameo Frames' Rub-Ons from EAD
You can order them in your choice
of color and I thought the Deep Red would be
a beautiful alternative to the traditional black.

I also used EAD's 'Fancy Frames' Stickerz as my scroll frame around
the beautiful silhouette.  Stickerz are terrific because they are vinyl
and repositionable and so fun to work with.

The sentiment is from Market Street Stamps.

I love the sweet little pearl heart brads and thought they were a nice touch.

For something a little different....

I love anything vintage and this sweet little chair is from 'Vintage Furniture'.
Creating clean and simple is so easy with pieces of furniture.
You may recognize the sentiment as a Paper Smooches design.
It is!
It's from Kim Hughes designed for EAD and is a part of the
'Thinking of You Sentiments' collection.

Here are the sets I used today:

The next stop on the blog hop is...
I have been enjoying some new directions in my
creative life recently and there are so many wonderful
things coming around the corner.
If you are new to my blog, thank you for coming by
and I hope you'll leave a quick comment so I know you were here.
I appreciate each and every visit and hope you'll come by again soon!

Right now it sounds like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
