My 1000th Post!!

Can you believe today  marks my 1000th blog post??  It's hard to believe I've been able to come up with that many projects and something to say about each one!  I've known this day was coming for a while and thought long and hard about what to do to mark the occasion.  I decided to take a look back through the 1000's of photos I've taken of my work over the years.  It is hard to believe I actually put some of it out there for anyone to see!'s bad!!  Along the way I also found several projects I had forgotten all about and really love, so I decided to share those favourites with you over the next couple of days.  There are 18 in all, so I will share six a day, which will take us into the new year.  So, here goes...the first round of my blog's version of "This is Your Life"...

This was my Dad's birthday card several years ago.  I like that I cut up the Lovely as a Tree image into three different-sized panels.  I also like the use of the natural jute twine.  Not crazy about the overuse of metal embellishments ;)
This was one of the projects we made at my very first workshop!  It's hard to believe I did something that ambitious with a bunch of rookie stampers (me included!).  I've come a long way since then!  I still love the Artistic Etchings stamp set!
This was my brother's birthday card several years ago.  He is a wannabe rocker at heart.  I like the grungy look with all the distressed edges and sponging.
This is still one of my all-time favourite Christmas cards.  I just love the composition of this one, as well as the images and colours.  I sure did do lots of layering on this one!!
This is a Z-fold card from one of my first Christmas Stamp-a-Stacks.  It uses some of my all-time favourite DSP (Mocha Morning) as well as the beautiful Bright Hopes stamp set, which is one I will always regret letting go.
This card earned me the nod for one of the first online sketch challenges I ever entered.  It is a super-simple layout that is actually quite involved, as I paper-pieced the umbrella and added drops of Crystal Effects to the raindrops and puddle for dimension.  Pretty advanced for me at the time!
I hope you've enjoyed this little blast from my past...check back tomorrow for another round of oldies but goodies!
