another Flamingo

If you happened to see my first My Pink Stamper Blog Hop post then you remember this cutie...I actually created this chick first and from her was inspired to do my PINK FLAMINGO DANCER...but I thought I would share this girlie with you all!

Mini Album

Hi Everyone!! For this My Pink Stamper Post we were challenged to create a scrapbook layout! YIKES...I have ONLY been making cards sooo this was indeed a challenge! Instead of grabbing one of my old untouched scrapbooks I decided to create a new mini for a VERY SPECIAL event in my beautiful daughter's life!

On March 12, 2011 (two weeks ago) my 16 year old daughter made a choice to commit herself a life of physical and spiritual purity, there was a ceremony where 20 friends and family showed support of her choice. In this day and age of technology, having everything NOW and intimacies no longer being viewed as precious it is a brave girl to say I choose to wait! I am so proud because this was her very own decision. For the young people out there as the pastor said during the ceremony it is never to late to make this commitment, no matter what your past holds you can chose to be pure now. Happy hugs to all the young ones out there you are all so very precious!

I hope you all like the mini I made! My Pink Stamper's More Faithful Sayings was the perfect stamp set for this creation!{hugs}~Raechel

Hello Pinkalicious Hoppers! If you are arriving here from Andrea over at Divine Domesticity you are moving in the right direction...if you're starting here you may want to hop over to Robyn-My Pink Stamper to start the hop from the beginning.

YAY Spring is everywhere in this hop! My Pink Stamper has invited everyone to make a spring project what ever your interpretation of spring may be!
When ever this time of year rolls around all the stores start carrying a bunch of cute little PEEPS which inspired this spring card! I hope you like it....I used My Pink Stamper's fruit & veggie puns These are super cute for a variety of different carts! Peeps are definitely not fruit or veggies!
Since I couldn't seem to make up my mind on which Spring card I wanted to post I decided there's room for 2! LOL! These are in NO WAY a set they are soooo different looking but both too springie to be left out of this Hop! The second card uses the sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Buggy Punnies I hope you all enjoy my Spring interpretations! Have LOTS of FUN hopping along! {hugs}~Raechel {supplies}
