I'm sure others know what I'm talking about. We just plain run out of ideas for a moment! Sooner or later things are kicking back into gear! YAY!

New Layout called LOVE

Hi there,

Today I'm adding a new layout of my daughter when she was just a year old.   She will be 26 next month.   Can't believe how time has gone so fast.    On this layout I experimented with a new technique  for me, using a textured Gel from Liquitex I used a brick stencil to create this layout. As well I used ColorCore Cardstock and used high grit sand paper and exposed the peach core centre in some areas.  I really enjoyed it and hope to continue with it on other layouts.     I get my Dusty attic chipboard from Vicky. Check out her Etsy site. She's from Alberta so its so quick to get for me.
I hope you enjoy my newest layout.  I will add a material list below.

Simple Moments

Aug 6th, 2012

Hi there, I hope everyone had a great long weekend, for those that have this long weekend hoilday. Its been hot the last few days but boy the storms we've been having, tornados, baseball hail and rain thats covering vechiles that parked in basement parking lots, or underpasses..  Crazy!

I will also be putting it in Funtoolas's Flower and lace challenges.
This picture was taking by my son Kyle when he was trying to figure out my camera.  I was so impressed with his talent.  He loved to take nature pictures, so lots of pets, and animals and scenery photos.  This is just one of them.  List of material below

Aug 1st How Time Flies

Wow, amazing how one ages in a 11 years..  If only we could turn back time!  This is me... well this WAS me in 2001.    This is my first sewing on a layout  YAY!  I just bought a fancy sewing machine and this was my first attempt.. well other than the scrap paper just to see if it would even sew through paper  lol    I think I like it!  I sewed on the white lace too.. boy that was much easier than using the super sticky double sided tape or the glue dots continuous line glue.   (much cheaper too)

Challenges I will be adding this to For Aug 2012:   Scrap Friends color challenge 
Information on material used, listed below.

About this layout:
The main paper is from Kaisercraft - Lake House Collection and Doodlebug design cupcake serenade cardstock
Home made flower of course..  except the little roses
A couple homemade stick pins
Dusty Attic Border   Great place to order Dusty Attic is from  Vicky's etsy site. FAST, helpful, and from Canada.   Usually she brings in a whole HUGE stock but she must move like fire as they sell out fast.
Homemade fan using a good heavy cardstock, and I added a fine  lace on it   Although you can't tell but the lace does have some sparkle to it.  I used double sided tape down each side of the veins after I made the fan I added the lace.
Chalks Ink
One Clear Cuts Butterfly.. the other one is just a run of the mill regular lace butterfly
The Year label is from Teresa Collins - Timeless collection

THANKS for stopping in.   I hope you enjoyed my sewing layout.
