Good afternoon my scrappy friends, I am sad to say but this cold is still kicking my butt so I haven't really been crafting all that much the last couple of weeks *cries* I miss my crafting table LOL I did manage to scrap a page this morning (not sure how much I actually like it though) and I wanted to post it before I crawl back to bed!
I used the sketch from C'est Magnifique kits

thanks for coming to take a peek...I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

here are mine....

thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

You are my...

I hope everyone is having a fabulous long weekend,as for myself I have been fighting off an awful cold since last Wednesday lets just say I didn't win LOL I spent most of this weekend in bed..I don't think it would have been too bad but my Asthma kicked in and kicked my butt, I was feeling some what normal yesterday and decided I wanted to sit at my craft table I had this fabulous idea for the sketch from Blue Fern studio...
I guess I wasn't feeling as well as I thought,this layout took me all day...the naps took up most of my crafty time LOL
so anyway I dug out this old photo of my youngest Sam from her dancing days ( Oh How I miss those days) she was so much better at dancing then she was playing T ball ( hmmm I have a couple pictures of that too,I'll have to dig those out!)  haha when I showed her the picture I was using she wasn't pleased at all, she was 7 or 8 in the picture and is now 21 almost 22 so I think she's a wee bit embarrassed! I love it!
yes yes I am a bit of a rambler today....anyway here is my didn't really turn out just as I planned but then again it never does..

 I got to use the new stamp from Kiasercraft I just bought from the flying unicorn store

and of course the new chippy piece( called one cute chick) I received from Blue Fern studio
thanks for coming to check out my latest project and reading my ramblings....

We Remember ...

To all who have given their lives, to all who have served or currently serve & those who wait patiently at home for their soldier to return…My family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

Please have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day.

Thank you

Good morning scrappers, today I would like to share a mixed media card I made...I saw this really awesome technique yesterday and I thought I would give it a shot...I took the criteria from the Beyond the grey's Bingo challenge and the new Swat (scrap warriors advanced training)  drill may flowers you must make your own flowers

The process is super simple too – just lay down a stencil, cover it with a thick coating of white paint, and mist!

 I used some homemade enamel dots,a pretty white butterfly,quite a few dylusions ink mists and of course I cut the sentiment with my silhouette misted it then heat embossed it...all the flowers are handmade!

thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest project!

Mojo Monday

Last night I was browsing through all the new challenges that came out this month just trying to see if there was one I wanted to try and tackle...I came across the one over at 13Arts (Create a vintage layout with a flower and min 2 mediums - you can use paints, modeling paste, inks, mists, gel medium, gesso...) I really love the idea of vintage pages but sometimes I just go way off the mark LOL
well I decided I would give it a shot but I combined the 13Arts challenge with the Mojo Monday sketch from the Flying Unicorn

I used lots of gesso,mist and inks and a little molding paste to create my background then added some pages from an old book and layered scraps bits of lace and a piece of chip board from Buzz and bloom that I cut in half...anyway here is what I came up with...

 I've been on a handmade flower kick lately these three were make just for this layout..they were made out of just scraps I had laying around.

 I'm still not sure if I pulled off the vintage feel but I kind of like what I did come up with!

thank you so much for taking the time to visit and check out my latest page!

Hi Ya happy scrappers, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and had fun for National scrapbook day! I know I did I spent the weekend over on the Flying Unicorn forums, they had a ton of challenges and basically I spent the weekend in My pj's scrapping LOL

today I would like to share my layout I made using the sketch from Once Upon A Sketch they gave us an anything goes this month for their journaling theme....of course the first thing I thought of was the week I spent with my best friend in Maine, since we moved to Wisconsin almost five years ago we don't get to see each other that often...we try to visit at least once a year ( sometimes I get lucky and we manage twice a year!)

anyway I used a picture from the view of her new home in N.H. at the top of the mountain...Its just so beautiful! there is a bit of journaling under the picture and more hidden in the little brown paper bag behind the picture!
