Special Thanks...

I got a wonderful present last night in the mail.....a very special person sent me a RAK ( haha I had to look that up Random Act of  Kindness)......Thank you so very much Debbie...if I could hug you from here I would LOL so this unassuming box was filled to the gills with all sorts of little treasures,there were papers and chipboard pieces a couple cute flowers which you'll see in a minute...lots and lots of journal tags.....some buttons and ribbons...I'm not sure how she managed to get everything in the box! I just want to thank her for her generosity I am so in love with everything you sent! So Thank you Debbie!

Now I made this layout with some of the little goodies I got last night....actually the only things I used that were in my stash were the little teddy bear brad,3 pieces of paper behind the picture,vellum sentiment and the liquid pearls.....everything else was in the box!

I used the sketch from Scrap That......

Peek a Boo

Good afternoon all..or well some lol I wanted to share  page with all of you and of course the subject of the page is another Fur-baby this one is Oreo and we took this picture just days after she arrived at her new home with us. Stephanie begged for a new kitten even though we already had a full grown cat (Cutie) who we got when Sam was three years old and a full grown pit bull/collie (Zena) who had very been around a cat until we had moved in with ours LOL that was we kept putting her off Until one of the moms at steph's school said the she new of a place that had kittens,I knew I was done for! Not even a week later Oreo came into our lives, this cute little black ball of fur with no tail (its the breed) poor steph thought her tail got cut off or something lol The best part is they all got along and she was/is a perfect fit for our crazy little family!
In this picture we caught her hiding in the pillows playing peek a boo with the other cat!

I used the sketch from Get Creative from Jan 15th
I am also linking up with Frosted Designs for their Use Music on your cards, layouts or off the page project!the butterflies are made with music paper as well as the the paper under the tickets.

Here is January'15th sketch

the dark flowers were made of scraps from one of Sam's sewing projects,it was so soft and fuzzy I just couldn't throw it away so I glued it to card stock and cut out the shapes(next time I will use the same color instead of white LOL ) I tried other flowers with this material but it frayed and fell apart way to easy..its like a velvet fabric so it was just easier to glue it down.
 I made the cute little tickets that describe Oreo
 this cute little dangle Sam brought home to me the other day...I love them
I also used a bit of gesso and the cut out pieces waste not want not!

Head in the clouds

I really loved the colors for this weeks CSI challenge......I used a picture from way back 2009 a beautiful winter day in Maine!here is how I solved the case

Evidence: Clouds,umbrella accents,string,wet medium (gesso),doodle dash lines

Testimony: Write your journaling on a tag that has string,on the right next to the butterfly.....says: Maine winter 2009,I may not live here anymore but it will always be my home.

Head in the clouds looking for the silver are the clues to solve the case......

head on over to CSI and try it your self!

 I really loved the coordinates for this case...the clouds and the dog in the plane!

I love this picture of Wicked the pug....she was Waiting for it to be dinner time,staring at them until one of them got up to feed
I used a sketch from lets get sketchy
I am also linking up to Quick Quotes you had to create a project with a banner of some sort...

I made a huge tag to hold the pictures....doesn't she look so pathetic like they would forget to feed her LOL

Here is the sketch...

I am not really big on Banners at least not the pennant ones so I was messing around with the itty bitty flower punch and I was going to just cut one petal and attach it to the string,when I did that I didn't like it but thought oh if I cut another one it might look like a butterfly ( Love those lol) well instead I cut too much and guess what it looked like a Bone! ha just the thing I needed! ta da! I thought it looked cute!

Gift 4 Sammi

If you've read any of my posts about Samantha you know she is really the one who is crafty,not only can she sew but she also draws and I decided I wanted to use my favorite drawing of hers to make her a bookmark! Shes like her mother always reading!

here is the actual picture she had done.....

its one of my favorites and its at least eight years old she has improved so much since she did this one but its still my fav!
Over at frosted designs the challenge was to make a gift or scrap about a gift....

well here is my gift for Sammi...

thanks for taking a peek!

Time heals

I was inspired by Marivic over at Berry71bleu to try something a bit different,well different for me anyway...Berry71Bleu is having a challenge called Create Me.

This challenge is about your new year's resolution, your dreams, your childhood, your best and worst moments, what makes you laugh, cry, mad...what makes you feel beautiful...your best physical feature, what you wish you can change about yourself...your pet peeves, your frustrations, your favorite food, color...maybe a secret? whatever you want to talk about as long as it's all about you.

So I made  mini kind of inspirational/memorial not sure what you would call it but basically its a mini with quotes or just saying that fit me or what I am feeling right now and where I would like to be this year.

its called time heals....that's my word for the year Heal!

its really small 3 inches x 4 inches
 Oh I forgot to post the theme from Beryy71bleu...

I used the colors and the lace as inspiration and made sure it was about me..

I used what ever struck me at the time....
 so some of the pages are a bit different
 but that says a whole lot about

I am also linking this up to Zeus and Zoe for their scrap about your word for 2013 challenge.

thanks for taking the time to come and check it out! Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Her Day

I jumped right on the new sketch from skissedilla..

I really need to start taking pictures during the day.....
I don't have any kind of stencil so I just used a circle border punch on a piece of scrap laid it out and sprayed with a blue mist....the hearts where hand cut from a piece of scrap paper that had been painted..I added a bit of dimensional glue to a couple and glitter to others....

here is sketch #194

I had this left over doily in my scrap bin the middle had been cut out for another layout but it works perfect here!
 I swear the flowers aren't this bright

I had a hard time with the lettering because I thought I still have some thickers sadly I couldn't find them...I had to resort to using the book of bunch out letters which isn't so bad but they are like really really bright colors haha so I just used markers to make them black then out liked in silver pen to make them stand off the page then used the dimensional glue on them!

I've been stumped by this sketch since Skissedilla posted it on the 13th....I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to do...Well I finally figured it out! And Sammi (my daughter)loves it! LOL...the sketch was a little different then what I am used to seeing, all the DT's did wonderful with their interpretation of  the sketch all different techniques and styles ...well just let me post it and you'll see what I mean...... Okay so the pictures really don't due this page justice........

Here is sketch #193

See I wanted to keep the trees or at least something from the since I tend to sit and stare out the window daydreaming I thought that was a perfect stating point for this page...

Now all I had to do was get it out of my head and on to the paper haha that's always the hard part....I have all these ideas but don't know how to make them happen especially with what I have on hand....

so I took my dreary picture of the cold winter I see looking out my window and turned it into the dream of Spring....

thanks for taking a peek.....
