Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Altered Notebook #6

This is the last of the notebooks that I bought to alter for myself and friends. I have done all six of them with sketches from Card Positioning Systems' 5th Anniversary. This sketch is the final one, Day 15.

My notebook cover was made with papers from K & Company and the Paper Studio. Spellbinders dies were used and Stampin' Up inks and stamp. I followed the sketch closely, but I did change the length of the two bottom panels to work better with my design. Embossed a piece of colored vellum (love that look) and added some stickers and pearls.

What am I going to do now that they won't be posting a sketch challenge every day????? Guess I'll go to the archives on the sidebar on their blog!!

You're too funny, I've seen you do cards without using sketches :)Those little notebooks are turning out fantastic.
