Emmy's 2010

Did you watch the red carpet last night for the Emmy's? I love watching these award show red carpets more than the show itself.  I just saw the pictures online. One the sites I looked at was radaronline.com. These pictures are from there.

First, I liked the navy blue one.  The dress had lots of drama and she wore it well. The purple one was interesting.  Still trying to decide if I like it. Maybe it would have been better with the layers on the bottom but not both.  I really love the color and the idea. Maybe a little too much going on.

This next dress worn by Eva Longoria was so pretty. The black flowers on the bottom of the dress was so stunning! She looked  great, too. I wonder how the dress would look in a lighter color? Maybe the floral details would show up better.

Out of  all the dresses I saw these were the most interesting ones. I was a little disappointed there weren't more WOW dresses. Also, there were some that made you wonder if those stylist had jobs after the show.  Well, I will let the Rachel Zoe's of the world keep doing their job while I will continue to be a distant admirer.

Mom's Album

My mom just loves all the cards I have given her since I have started. She had them all up on her kitchen counter for a few years now. So you can imagine the cards were taking over that space. She had a nice idea to put them in a photo album. We posted each card to a page with a nice floral background. So of course, I had to decorate the front of it. .

I really love how it turned out. I used some Prima flowers and leaves. The pearl and crystal swirls are from Recollections and maybe Prima. (Forgot?) The butterflies she got from Michael's floral section. Beautiful! I had a title on it but she preferred it on the inside page.

Webster's Pages

Last month, I won a prize package from Webster's Pages. I was expecting to receive it in September but it came yesterday. I was so surprised to see all the great items I got. Check it out! This is from there new collection called "Hollywood Vogue." Just love it! I got two of each of the patterned papers, a diecut paper and those colorful Sparklers. They look like buttons without the holes, cute and sparkling.

So a special thanks to the lovely folks at Webster's Pages "InspireMe" that gave me this wonderful gift. Now I need to order some of their pretty embellishments to go with the great papers. So cool!

Finally, My First Entry

I am so happy to start this blog. I have so much creativity to share with you. I do feel like the butterflies you see and will continue to see. I am emerging and starting to fly with my arts and as a woman. Also, I am calling this blog "Inspired Me" because I feel inspired and as a result it flows into my cards and painting. I really hope that you will feel a little of what I feel when I am creating. So feel free to leave your comments here. I know we will share lots of ideas and joys.
