Last year in August my sister, Lizzy made a birthday cake for me and there were many little birthday notes, and memory notes along with Hershey's kisses. It touched my heart. I recently throw the cake away. It had 12 slices which were cake slice shape boxes. Well I decided to make her cake out of boxes that I made. There are 5 layers, a 7 inch, 6 inch, 5 inch, 4 inch and a 3 inch. I made 94 hand made flowers using the George cricut Flower 1, then I used a halloween Cricut Cartridge to cut 2 different borders to use as piping. The candles I think was from the cricut Sweet Treat cartrigdge. I cut 8 no. 5 and 8 no O and glue them together to make my own chipboard. This is a tip I borrowed from my scrapbooking friend, Misty, and then use yellow/orange stickles for the flame of the cake.

This is a paper wreath that I made for my friend, Ms. Virginia. The flowers were created using the Flower 1 on the Cricut cartridge George. It took 3 die cut flowers to create each flower. The butterflies were digital images that were colored with Copic markers. The vines are plastic coated wire. It was assembled on a circular piece of paperboard using a hot glue gun to secure the flower and butterflies.
The Scrappin Packin Momma July meeting was "The Times and Life of the Scrappin Packin Mommas". We had to walk the red carpet and was encouraged by Yo Momma, the hostess to dress for the big night. So I made this silly paper hat, along with a telephone purse.
There was adwards that night and I was adwarded by my peers the "Best Headwear".
This is a birthday card for my nephew, Dalton's 12th birthday. All the little boys are standing up and under each it say Happy Birthday. Color each of the little guys with copic markers. This was a fun card to make.
In the world of scrapbooking I am known by several different names.
Memorycollector is my name for my online group called "The Crop Room".
Paper Piecing Patty is the name that Garnet (MeMe Cat), and the Scrapping Cats started to call me, and everyone at the Scrapbook Cottage.
The Scrappin Packin Mommas, which is a group of 15 ladies in Harvey, Louisiana that meets once a month to scrapbook. Each of the ladies in the group has a momma name, and they named me Momma 411. The name stuck since I am the resourse person of the group.
