The Rules...

We love to see all of your beautiful creations but to be in for the prize drawing it must be a scrapbook layout or mini album. After all that is what we are about here. We all love to stamp on our cards but sometimes we forget to use them on our layouts and other projects. They are cheap embellishments and plentiful after all. You are welcome to combine our challenge with others. Happy Crafting!

Michele Kovack

My name is Michele Kovack. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for the last 16 years. I currently teach 5th grade and love it! I have two beautiful children, Cortney (14) & Kyle (12). They inspire me everyday! I also have a cutie pie Bischon/Poodle mix named Skippers. We rescued him from the shelter last summer and couldn't be happier that he is a part of our family.

I started scrapbooking about 14 years ago, shortly after my daughter's birth. We had been informed that she was visually, mentally and physically impaired. It was a lot to deal with, especially since it was our first child. I think scrapbooking became a creative outlet for me. It became a chance to express myself, whether it be grief or joy. It also made me treasure all of her milestones and accomplisments, and to focus on the positive! My son was born two years later, and he was such a character that I scrapbooked all the silly things he did! From scrapbooking, came the cardmaking/stamping end of it! I had so many supplies that it seemed ridiculous to buy a card from Hallmark. So my obsession with homemade cards began! I love making altered projects too now! I can't seem to throw anything away these days. I hoard it all, in hopes that someday I can "alter" it! : )

I am excited to be on this talented DT and can't wait for all the fun challenges ahead!

And here is a sample of Michele's work.....

  6. Michele, I cannot pick a favorite from your blog, they are all so much fun to look at. You use so many different embellishments, it's like let's look at the next project to she what cool thing you used. Okay, I guess I have to say the moose lounging in the hammock is my favorite, such a fun card. I live in Florida and will trade you the heat anytime, lol.
