Once Upon A Time....

These are some papers out of a Prima tablet that my daughter just got, and she shared with me!! They remind me of a child's storybook, so I went with it!! This is a pic of me and my dog "Blackie" many, many years ago!! I loved all animals as a kid, and still do as an adult! I cannot imagine life without some kind of pet, particularly a dog and cat! I wish the papers and flowers looked better, they are washed out on-line, they are a pretty purple and lavender, which I don't normally use! I really distressed them, made a bunch of paper flowers, distressed them also. I also cut out alot of the little "mice" and added them throughout lo!! Also made the flourish, and did my fav scallopped edges!! Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!

Yes indeed.....spring is finally here!!! This is a pic of my two grandson's, and we are so happy spring is here, cuz summer is just around the corner, and we have big plans!!! I wanted this to be bright and cheery, so I made my flowers really bright! And the small ones across the bottom,I even curled up their petals to make them 3 dimensional, just like they are popping out of the ground!!! I made the hearts and title letters too! I added some prety big ribbon and made a bow, then tucked in my hearts to show our love for the new season!! I used lots of layers and scallops, which I so love! I also really distressed everything on this lo, time consuming, but I love the effect!! I alos added a pearl flourish from Prima!! Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!

Simple Pleasures

This is a picture of my new coffee mug! Strange thing to scrap you say....not for me!! I love these simple little pleasures in life, sometimes they are what makes me the most happy!!! I love roosters, and chickens, so when I saw this mug, had to have it, and it had the cutest little box too!! I used all Graphic 45 papers in this! Did alot of cut work, made the big flower, and the little jute flower! I got the rooster's on-line, and I did alot of layering which I love to do!! I also distressed everything, and scallopped the edges, which is also another fav thing of mine!! Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!

The Hunt

I used alot of Prima products on this one!! These are pics of my youngest grandson at the annual Easter Egg hunt here in our little town!!The kids come up every year to bring the boys to it!! Tyler won the prize for most eggs found in his age group!! I used the Prima cardboard, a vine, flowers, butterfly, and lace!! I also really distressed everything, including the flowers! I chalked them pretty heavy! I also used my gel pens on my title letters and journaling to add more detail! I also added a Zva crystal to this! Did some cut work from an old Prima paper too! Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!

Letter to Santa!!

I've been wanting to do this picture for quite sometime, so I finally got around to it when I got home from work yesterday! I also wanted to do something diferent, like using negative space, which is a little difficult to do!! So I gave it my best shot!! I also did NOT use my chalk on this........which was really hard, I use it on almost everything!! But I did distress the edges of papers! I also made a ruffle around perimeter of lo using paper! Folded and attatched to the underneath side of lo!! Used the Fancy Pants Christmas papers, they are so cute, that's where the trees and snow flakes come from! Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!
