This is for two challenges, Get Picky #11, and Sketchabilities #54. I have had this clown paper from G45, and wasn't sure what to do with it, till these two challenges happened, and it was the perfect fit!! I did a ton of cut work, and some really tidious cut work on those vines! I distressed all the papers, I made the title letters, and chuckled at a couple of these clowns as I did this lo! Thanks so much for stoppin' by! Teresa*

This is for the challenge at color combos Galore.....black white grey.......and this is what I came up with! I made the butterfly to the left of Dorothy's picture......I cut out a design off some paper that reminded me of butterfly wings, then added some antenna's and a body out of the balls off a piece of trim!I distressed all the papers,made the curled flowers,cut out a design off some paper for a strip of black color,added a journal strip, and also added the "felt" love word from Prima.

Back To School Book!!!!

I made this little "Back To School Book" using my new G45 papers, and they are all my fav colors, so ya just gotta know how much fun this was!!! I used Tilda, colored with distress inks, then added the new Prima buttons, made the banner using hemp, did some cut work too. On the edge of book, I punched some flowers, then added cloth covered brads over top of them. On the inside, paper made flowers again, more cut work, punched flowers and lace, and more of those awesome buttons! I also added some pearls to inside! There's also a stick pin on inside, I won that from The Ribbon Girl. This was soooooooo much fun, mainly because I love those papers! My all time fav colors.......(G45 always manages to make papers just for me) (he-he). This is for several challenges TOMIC (back to school), Paper Sundaes (Magnolia stamps), Just Magnolia (bingo- gems, distressing, pins), Magnolia Down Under (texture), Totally Tilda (back to school), Creative Stamp Friends(school), Just Us Girls (3-D back to school), Paperplay( back to school), Totally Paper Crafts (back to school).

Butterflies galore!

I've seen a few cards similiar to this one, some with 3 different folds to it, some with just one side to it(like the gorgeous one Kylie did), I designed this one, just two folds, put lace all the way over top made with my MS punch, and I also made a sleeve for it. The sleeve closes in the back, I put velcro in back to hook it together, so makes card nice and snug when closed!
I used my new Prima papers on this, layered and distressed them all, also did some sewing! I've actually been sewing on almost everything lately, like the look alot! I added ric-rac, lots of butterflies,some pretty flowers, and colored Tilda with distress inks. This is for Magnolia Down Under(butterflies, and there's a bunch!) Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*

"Pip" and Sketch!

This is one of my new "Pip" stamps from Sugar Nellie! Isn't she just the cutest! I accidently got some of the dark brown distress ink by her eye, and could not remove it, so I added a little more and did the same to other eye, now she looks like she has on eye shadow!! This is for Pink Ink Sketch, my first time joining in on the fun! Looked like a fun little sketch, and it sure was! I layered and distressed all the papers, added some older flowers from stash, did the journal circle with stamp and punch,did some sewing(real),and added some butterflies! Thanks so much for stoppin' by! Teresa*

Remembering These Special Moments with You.....

This is for The Color Room # 72. This is the second lo I have managed to do of my friend and companion of 17 years, High! She was nicknamed that beacause she sold "higher" then we wanted to pay! I had to make the tough decision to have her put down, and it was by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Picture is of the two of us a few years ago at a show where she won everything! I miss her so. BTW.........I used my new Prima papers, did a ton of cut work, and the reason for all the clocks.....time ran out for us is what they represent. I think the colors in this new line of paper represent the color palete pretty well/ I sure hope you like it, thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek at High! Teresa*
