This is just absolutely lovely, Melissa! I love how you glittered the tabs. I need to get back into scrapbooking. I think I will only do mini albums or 8x8.

Have a great day!

So incredibly pretty! As ALWAYS!!! I have a question for you- what do you use to adhere your glitter- and how do you get it to not shed forever? I've been hesitant to use glitter in my scrapbook with it's tendency to glitter everything around it, but I adore the look! I bought some spray fixative today to try- but thought I'd ask the pro!! :)
And THANK YOU for the orange julius recipe- my mouth is watering! (I'm choosing not to even read the oreo recipe! Hehehe!)
Have a great night!


Just gorgeous as always!!!! Everyone of your creations just makes me smile!


I love your style and admire your talent. You're my creative guru.


So very beautiful.... you're little bean is very lucky to have such a loving (and very talented) Momma.

Your layout is stunning! You are a very inspirational artist! I can't wait to try your Orange Julius recipe!

Stunningly GORGEOUS!!! And thanks for the recipes ;)


Your scrapbook page simply took my breath away! I love how you glittered the tabs (always love the bling! ;-D), and those burlap flowers are beautiful! What a blessing for your little bean to have her Mother's memorable words captured for her in this layout!

Thank you also for sharing the recipes. I've been wanting to try to make homemade oreos, although I know they won't last long in our home! LOL! The orange julius will be a hit here as well during the warmer days, and I LOVE chunky icy drinks, too! :-D

Have a blessed day, Melis!

Beautiful daughter, beautiful page. Straight from the heart story filled with love and a recipe that will make me smile when I am going to make these.

Thanks for the recipes. I was wondering about how to make homemade Oreo cookies.

Your daughter is beautiful, and your card is stunning. Thank you for sharing your recipes with us and your wonderful artwork. Have a great day.


Melissa that is not a scrapbook layout - it is a work of art that needs to be on a wall somewhere. Oh it is so breathtakingly beautiful. my curious mind wants to know what is in the envie? is it a sweet note to your daughter? perhaps a memory you both share? whatever it may be it is going to delight her in her adult life. thank you for sharing.


Stunning layout, Melissa! Love all the glittery goodness. And that Oreo recipe.. yummmm!! I will have to try it!


Absolutely exquisite! Love your work and little bean is precious.
