All about me.... Let's Get Sketchy

Good Morning scrappers. We have a new challenge at Let's Get Sketchy today. The challenge is to do a page about "YOU"
I am much more comfortable behind the camera but know I am missing out by capturing the fun I am having. So here is my page.
The picture was taken at our cabin and I had brought my photo booth props. So my daughter captured me having some fun and feeling "Fancy"

You could win a Gift certificate from our sponsor
Can't wait to see what you create.

A New Team

Just wanted to share that I am now a proud member of Colorful Creations Design Team. My first post will be October 1, 2014.   You can read the details on the challenge HERE.

22 September 2014


 I am on the Frosted Design Blog today with my page.  I used the gorgeous September Kit.
I love layers,texture, flowers and lace. I used a picture of my daughter Serena and her boyfriend Skye.  These 2 beautiful people just happen to match my September Kit and now they are the focus of  my Layout.

I used several paper layers and added molding paste and the Lace stencil.

Here is a closeup of the banner. I created banner using the stickers from the sticker sheet, black Card stock and Twine.  You can see the stamps and the doily is inked.

Here is the right corner. 

The bottom right corner with the flower cluster I added a pearl to the butterflies

Here is a close up of left bottom corner. I used the sticker sheet from the kit for the title and the border. I added lace and some flatback pearls. I also added some lace from my stash. 

Thanks for looking. Here are the items from Frosted Designs Store.

I cannot believe fall is already here. We are having crazy weather one day it is cold the next is warm. The trees are almost in full foliage. I really do love 4 seasons.

Red Carpet Studio #79

The new Challenge at Red Carpet Studio is a tribute to Robin Williams. 

I chose to do "Someone to Love" A song by queen used in the cartoon "Happy Feet" 
At a family BBQ a small dog wondered into the yard. Asher chased him and the dog let him pick him up. Asher asked his mom if he could keep it. She said no and he yelled out " But I love It!"  It was so cute and we all laughed. Asher played with the dog until the neighbours called it home. He alreaduy has a small dog Daisy but this identical dog was so much more fun.
I used simple stories Homespun paper collection and a variety of flowers and vintage lace.

Thanks for looking and can't wait to see what you create.
