Silly Girl Layout

Thursday, March 31, 2011
Just wanted to share a quick post....
I finished another layout this afternoon. This time is about my daughter.
I had so much fun using these colors and made the flowers.
So, here it is.....:D

Just some closer looks on the title and my handmade flowers {nothing really special...just fun flowers}

The paper collection I used on this layout was from Close To My Heart called More to Adore. It's just gorgeous. Already distressed and again love the color palette.
That's it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'll see you all again soon.

Sweet Birthday Wishes Card

Monday, March 28, 2011
I have a special card that I'd like to share with you all today. I started this about a couple days ago...and finally finished this morning. Usually, it didn't take me so long to make a card, but this one was special.

You might be wondering what's so special about this card. Well, I finally learned the coloring technique using odorless mineral spirit or a.k.a Gamsol. It was so much fun....!!

I always want to color using Copic Markers...but I figure it will take me awhile to build my collections. So, I started to use regular colored pencil and the result isn't bad at all. I think I love it :D

So here's my card. It's a birthday card.
Look at the girl {image}...isn't she soo cute? This is one of many wonderful images that Mabelle has created. Check her Etsy store, Whimsy and Stars Studio, and I bet you'll love her adorable digi stamps.

A little close up...

Inside the card

And my wonderful readers, I need your feedback about my coloring. Please let me know what you think. I need to practice and more practice {The Virtue: Practice makes Perfect}.

Well, thank you so much for stopping by today and also share your comments on my card.
Have a great week.

My Cute Boy Layout

Friday, March 25, 2011
I made this layout for last week Sketchy Thursday Challenge. When I finished the layout...I felt there's something missing or incomplete from my project. So, I finally added something. And I'm happy the way it turned out. However...I wasn't able to submit this....because I was late :( oh well!

Here's the sketch

And here's my layout

I love these pictures of Dustin. He was only 3 months old. I'd been waiting for awhile to scrap these photos and finally did it.

I used My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Hattie collection..{LOVE Stella and Rose new lines}, and the Bear on the right bottom is a digi stamp from Pink Cat Studio. I colored it using regular colored pencils and gamsol. Just learned this technique and love it!!

Here's some close looks on the layout.

If you're wondering....I added the hand stitching around the layout at the last minute (and still couldn't make it for the challenge deadline. LOL).

Well, thank you for stopping by. Have a great weekend.

Altered Frame

Saturday, March 19, 2011
Just wanted to share with you all my recent swap project that I made. It's an Altered Frame. It's my very first altered project, and I love the way it turned out.

So, here it's my handmade creation...

I got the frame from Michaels, then I painted it with 2 different layers of chocolate. After the paint dried, I added some metallic copper glimmer using my homemade glimmer mist. While it's still wet, I used my heat gun and heated the frame. Love the effects from the glimmer mist.

I also made the flowers. Actually, I had tons of fun making these :D

I used Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Die, McGill Punch, some Blings and Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists (Dragonfly and Candy Apple Red).

After putting this together...I want to keep this frame to myself. LOL. Just Joking. :D
I need to pack this now and send it to my partner.
I hope she likes it. What do you think???

I asked my hubby if he wanted me to make a frame like this for him...and he answered yes and no. Yes for Please make an altered frame for me, and No for Please don't be so girly. LOL.
Well, we'll see what I can come up with.

Thank you for stopping by.

We Belong Together Layout

Friday, March 11, 2011
Hi Scrappers,

It's a beautiful day today here in Lincoln, Nebraska. As a matter of fact, I'm typing and watching my children playing in our backyard. I can feel the Spring is in the air. OOohhh I can't wait. It's been a weird and awful Winter this year, but I always look forward to gorgeous Spring days.

Well, this morning I finally finished a scrapbook layout that I made for a challenge over at Cosmo Cricket Blog. And the exciting part is, the winner will get published on Scrapbook Trends Magazine. So, without further a do..let me show you my layout.

I used Cosmo Cricket Togetherness collection for this project. I bought this paper pack last fall and hadn't had a chance to use it. Never found the right picture or time to play with this. So, when I read about the challenge...I knew right away it's time to brake the collection { =D} And by the way, LOVE Cosmo Cricket Togetherness collection!!!

About 90% of the embellishments came from the collection. I added some blings to the center of the flowers. And I made the burlap rosette flower.

I had tons of fun making this layout, and every time I look at this...{again} it reminds me of spring.

Ok...the day before I made this layout, I heard the song from Toy Story 3 titled We Belong Together {at the end of the movie} and I love it. I decided to used it as a title for this project.
I really love how this layout turned out, and I hope you do too.

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a blessed weekend and hope you can feel the Spring in the air.
