About Me

My photo
Rochester, NH, United States
A place where Scrapping is savored as you would a wonderful meal and, while you're here, we enjoy each other's company --I am a working single mom who tries to juggle everything in the air with the hopes that when misses one she's not underneath to get whacked. Oh and I'm binlingual too :) Un lugar donde se desgusta el arte de Scrap como un bueno plato y de camino pasamos un rato entre amigos -- Soy una madre soltera que pretende no ser atropellada y aplastada cuando una de las multiples responsibilidades y tareas que mantego al aire se me escapa y caye a la tierra. Oh y soy binlingue tambien :)

Welcome/Bienvenido a Tapitas de Vida.

It's been a LONG time since actually prepared and presented a creative Tapita for my blog visitors, but this one celebrated my return to creative scrap/paper designing and I can't think of a better occasion to have done this for. I was honored to be able to join with so many amazing well known designers and participate in this hop. I am so glad that you joined us today for Operation Julie’s Smile. If you came here from Lindsey Wood's blog LSEY CREATIONS , then you are in the right spot. If not, you may want to start from the beginning at the Sweet Stamp Shop’s blog and take your time. You have ALL WEEKEND to hop with us and win prizes!
Before you scroll to my creation take a moment to read about Julie's story and why we are hopping. Then consider donating (see the DONATE BUTTON on the right) if you feel led to. After that, please enjoy my tapita and tell me how it well it satisfied your creative palette by leaving me a comment.

"The creative blogging community is coming together this weekend to help one of our friends, Julie Ranae. You may know her as the Design Team Coordinator for many wonderful companies from bakers twine, die cuts, rubber stamps and more. What many people don’t know about Julie Ranae is that she has had some pretty major dental surgeries in her lifetime due to medication she had to take as a child. It was in her plans to think about having all of her teeth replaced at some point in the next 5 years, a decision that was pretty easy to plan out. But then it happened…she chipped her front teeth on a weekend a month ago. The dentist told her there was no way to save them & that it was his recommendation that she give in and have them all her teeth removed soon, but for that day, they needed to get her front teeth done so her gums could begin to heal. He said he would 'work out payments with her to have ALL this work done...but when she called to make her appt for the first step of impressions, they told her the amount of money that was needed and that the 'payments' applied only to the two teeth that were extracted that day. Her husband Paul was with her & that too, was his understanding as well. So this is how she has found herself in this situation…Needing at least $4000 to get started and another $3000 to finish the process…a total of $7000.Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight! Because she is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job of organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of ‘working overtime’ for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an outside job to pay for the work to be done.

It is the goal of all of these generous friends & sponsors to help make this situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon.If there is anything you can do to help with a financial donation, there is a donation button ready for you to click. Any amount is appreciated and ALL DONATIONS will be eligible for prizes from our sponsor pool of over $2500"

And now on to my Tapita --- I used stamps from the "Gnomies" collection by the Sweet Stamp Shop. I'd had this idea in mind for awhile and here it is. Please click on the picture to see a bigger image as this little snap doesn't let you appreciate the glittery moon and bat. The inside doesn't have a stamped but rather has a grey colored writing space with a toadstool embellie.
And now your next stop on this amazing hop, which will be number 43, is
Lisa Wallace's blog where I am sure you'll be just as dazzled.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and I look forward to your comments.
Happy Hopping and Hasta la vista amigas mias!!!
