I'm glad you arrived, please do come in.. I hope you enjoy my Homemade crafty items. Feel free to leave a comment and if you have any questions I'll do my best to reply. I've been having better luck with my Mojo but still have a tendency to get lost in the game. I lose my mojo and I just wait for some inspiration to hit and then I'll scrap again. 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! For those that stop by and leave comments, I greatly appreciate it. Even stop by just to say Hi.. I will try to get back to your blog too. I hope you have a great day, I hope you enjoy your visit!

Will You Be Mine? New Design Team Member!

I'm proud to officially announce that I have joined the design team at our local scrapbook store Scrapbook Memories and More.  I've been asked to design for the Kit Challenge they have starting the first of every month!.   You've seen several of my entries into the Challenge for the last few months and was totally shocked when they asked if I would join their design team!.
My new layout for this month is the same as all the rest..  No boughten embellishments.. no more boughten paper, other than whats in the kit.   This kit had 4 flowers.. 2 white one and two tiny roses, a couple stripes of lace, a little blinged out bead, and a small tag and some chipboard.   All given in this cute little red bag.  So I figured I had to get that bag into my layout somehow.   All the embellishments are made by me with a plastic resin.  I'm having so much fun making them.  and YES even the "beads" are resin.   I found this awesome mould for beads and had to give it a try on this Valentine layout.

This is my daughter, moments after she was asked for her hand in marriage.  I hope you enjoy my new layout!  If you have any questions on what product I used or how I did something.. just ask, I'll do my best to get a reply to you!..   Thanks for stopping into my Blog.  I'd love to hear from you.  As always its nice to know I have some visitors and always appreciate when you take your time to share your thoughts.   Hope you enjoy..  


I wish my butterflies would show all the glitter they have.  They just are not the same in pictures as they         are on the layouts.

Here are some close pics
to show more details.  The
leaves are all handmade using only the paper in the kit and a few kinds of paint and lacquer.  I used almost all the contents of the kit.. even the wires that were on the 4 flowers that were provided.  I made the rose, which I painted glossy red.  All the black you see, except for the chipboard, I used micro fine glitter.  The borders are two kinds of dies and the "beads" are resin as well as the hearts, cameo,  frame and flowers.

                               Happy Valentines Day (soon)
