She flew in on Thursday(boy were her arms tired!LOL) and stayed until the following Monday evening.
Sherie showed up with lots of love and a suitcase packed full of art goodness and treasures and a mind packed with clever art ideas and inspiration-yup, all of that!heehee
Over the next few days,I am going to share the projects we worked on and created.
Project number one was to redesign these baby dresses/nighties Sherie brought.
Up first is Sherie's~warning photo heavy post with some Jackie goofiness!

So there you have a tale of two dresses!
Those wonderful stamps we used are from
This is a journal Sherie brought me that she made out of large envelopes-so very cool! It took me forever and her explaining at least a hundred times how she assembled these envelopes heehee my brain wouldn't cooperate!
I love Sherie's style,always so happy!
Thank you my sweet art sister!
That's a wrap for today- see you again tomorrow!
Thank you for your visit!
