This is for My Creative Sketches.....the 3rd one!! I was so very tickled when I won the first round, was so thrilled to have my lo chosen.....and that prize was AMAZING!!!! So this is the last round of sketches, and I am excited to see all the gorgeous lo's for this round!! My lo was made using pictures from our 4th of July camping trip! Just me and my two grandson's went!! We loaded up the trailer, bikes, dogs, and away we went! We had a ball!! I layered and distressed all the papers, did some cut work, some stitching, and even layered the pattern papers in sketch for lots of depth!! The journaling is on a small tag that's shoved up under the big picture! Oh, I also added that branch rub on!! I hope you like it, I really enjoyed creating it! Thanks for takin'a peek! Teresa*

Looking out the Window......

OMG.....I had an absolute ball making this! Really stepped outside the box on this one!! I wanted a "scene". so I made the window frame, I put clear acetate behind it, so looks real!! Then after I distressed window, I put faux snow all over it! I added tons of punched and layered snowflakes, lace, buttons, AND EVEN PUT A "CURTAIN" in the window using lace!! Tilda is done in pink distress inks, as is the cabin scene!I even did the inside up quite a bit!! Added paper lace, and more snowflakes!!I sure hope you like it!!

This is for Magnolia Down Under! Let It Snow is the theme, and I have actually put the fake snow in the corners of the scene of this card!!! I also did punched snowflakes too! I layered and distressed all the papers, added some pearls, did some hand doodling, and colored my fav stamp with distress inks! Thanks so much for takin'a peek! Teresa*


I did some colors that I don't normally use, but was happy with the results! This is for Sketchabilities, and their sketch was awesome!! I used 6 different pictures from this last year, and combined them for this lo "2011"! I added alot of paper embellie's, and layered the background papers and distressed everything! Thanks so much for takin'a peek!! Teresa*

Christmas Present......

I really wanted to make a "different" type of lo this time, so this is what happened!! I used my fav subject Dorothy, and Christmas pictures with her "Horns" on, the first Christmas I had her!! She was so darn cute!! I used my kraft paper for background, then added some matching Christmas paper! I used the sketch at
Get Picky, with multi-pics! I did the journaling (Kraft It Up)...really different too.........I cut it out, used pen to doodle around each word, then went around the layout with the journaling! I also made the title the same way!! Then, I puched out snowflakes and added them to the perimeter of the lo!! This was so much fun to do!! I added some gorgeous lace, and also used some mist to add just a little more color!! I also did a little sewing on this lo! Thanks so much for takin'a peek!! Teresa*

Embossed Christmas......

This little easel card is for several challenges! Simply Magnolia (anything goes), Magnolia Down Under (sentimental), It's a Magnolia challenge(buttons & bling),
The Pink Elephant(embossing), This was alot of fun to make! I actually started with that center embossed piece of cardstock, and built the card from there! I added some pearls, punched snowflakes, some buttons in centers of snowflakes,added some stickles to their hats and bottom of dress, a circle sentiment, I made the heart, cuz I love Christmas.I wish I hadn't covered the embossed paper so much, it's pretty cool, I wiped over it with white paint, so the detail is awesome!!I added a little fence in front with my MS punch! Thanks so much for takin'a peek! Teresa*
