My name is Melanie, I am a military wife that is about to change in 4 more months to a retired military wife ;), a mommy to my sweet Rainbow (child born after a loss) baby who just turned 2, I am also a stepmommy to 2 handsome boys who are 20 & 15, last but not least I am a Angel Mommy to a little angel who at 8 1/2 weeks gestational age went to Heaven. I have two dogs, Destiny 11-Cocker Spaniel, and King 4-Pitbull. I am studying to become a Medical Transcriptionist and hopefully be able to work from home.

ATC's: I am new to making ATC's and have found them to be very cool to make. I am inspired but what I see on Flickr and Youtube. I am inspired as well from those who I receive from swaps I join. Please don't be rude when commenting or rating me about an ATC as it's new to me. I need some practice ;)

soyprincesa2 rated for Start a Smash Book (DIY) on Jul 27, 2012
Comment: I got the smashbook today and it was such a wonderful suprise. I loved the variety of colors throughout and the many pockets and note cards. It shipped well... the inside mod podged page was still a little sticky so I pulled out my matte finishing spray and sprayed the page (let it sit for a few hours to dry) and now it's totally NOT sticky. I loved the pictures you used, the M was great, and the patterend paper was nice too. I hope you receive a book that you like as well. Thanks for all the work you put into it... I can see that you did put your whole heart into it!
Response: Awesome M ;) So glad you like it. I did get mine and love it. So ready to start filling it in. Thanks for the tip on the finishing spray. Hope to swap with you again soon. thanks for the rating!!
