Random Facts.....

This is for Sketchabilities(#58), and Get Picky(#13)! I LOVED the sketch that was supplied for us at Sketchabilities, was so much fun to work with! I had fun coming up with the strips of paper and deciding on what papers to do my cut work on for the leaves! At Get Picky we were given a picture for inspiration, and I loved the colors of green, white, blue, and a slight touch of pink! So I used Dorothy as my subject, she's always game!! I layered and distressed all the papers, added pearls, I crotched the small flower, and added some lace at torn spot! Sure hope you like it, thanks so very much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek!

WISH we could go to Wonderland.......

This was a FUN little lo to do for "Bird Is The Word" challenge! I've had these papers for awhile, and had that picture of Dorothy(my little terrier-like Toto)and myself, and wanted to do a lo using both, and this challenge was perfect for it!! That picture has a tree trunk beside us, just like where the hole was that Dorothy fell that's why I wanted the theme to be Wonderland!!!! I used most of the sketch that we were given if we wanted to use it, and I did, it was pretty darn cool! I really layered and distressed all the papers, did a ton of cut work, and cannot tell you how much fun this was! I made the title letters, and they are really layered alot too!In the left hand of lo instead of a tag like in the sketch, I used that hand instead....thought it looked pretty cool there, and it sticks out quite aways if you look at side pics you might be able to see! I sure hope you like it! thanks for stoppin' by and takin'a peek! Teresa*

I didn't KNOW.........

This is for My Creative Sketches (2nd sketch). This is one of my fav lo's I've ever done, because of the content of the lo. Journaling reads, " I didn't KNOW I was white. That's what my 7yr old grandson said at the breakfast table the other day. He looked at his hand and pinched his skin. He seemed surprised and confused. They have friends of all colors and do not discriminate or judge. Consequently, he had NO clue! Wouldn't it be nice if the "WHOLE" world were this way!" I think that children are our blessing for a BETTER world! I used alot of black and white papers on this lo, with that touch of light blue. I distressed all the papers, used that AWESOME sketch supplied to us, crotched that flower, made the hearts, and truly enjoyed making this. I sure hope you like it! By the way......I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone (I won last challenge)and I tried to leave a comment on site, but for some reason it wouldn't let me. Some comment boxes are stubborn for some reason. Congrats to Anja & Vicky too! Thanks again! Teresa*

Mo's new image & pink for cancer awareness!

This is for Mo's challenge (fav image). I just got two of the new Christmas stamps, and this is one of them.She's so darn cute! I made a flower card to put her on, and added colors not normal for Christmas, but I had the old fashioned blue snowman paper, and decided it was what I wanted to use, Made some rolled flowers, for it, crotched a flower too, and colored her with distress inks! Thanks for takin' apeek! Teresa*
