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!

Friends Forever New layout finally done!

I've been working on this new layout for awhile..  This is my daughter Ashley and her best friend Jen at her wedding in Aug 2010.   Ashley was one of her bridesmaids.
I hope you enjoy this layout.   for now I will have it in a shadow box, then I will give it to Ashley so she can enjoy it on her wall, then tucked into her album it will go.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.  Most flowers I made myself.. except the teeny roses, and the blue Primas.    I've been practicing making roses for the last couple of months, trying to get confidence that hey have an authentic look.. I'm still working on them!

 This light blue rose I put through my cuddlebug and lightly inked the embossed area.  I love the look.   I've had a 1/2 of box full of roses until my last two layouts..  Time to keep practicing and trying other flowers too.  I just love making them
and growing them..   My kitchen table is currently FULL of bedding plants that need to get put outside.  This week.  I think I'm safe to put them in, no more frost.. (but as soon as I say that.. it will freeze out)

This little title frame has a Tim Holtz Fragments under it, with the title glued on with Glossy Accents.
I just love the sparkly leaves it just adds alittle something more.

Here is a list of some of the contents I used for this
My Mind's Eye  Lost and Found paper
Pink Glitter paper
Acrylic Fragments
Celebrate It  Valentines Wired Ribbon
Glitter steams  from "Noel"
Glossy Accents
Corsage pins, and matching beads
Ek  Large Edger Punch - Scallop Daisy
Scor Pal
Dew Drop Inks
Wonder tape  (love this tape as well as (Terrifically Tacky Tape)
Prima Flowers Roosevelt Collection -  Carow, 
Prima Flowers.. Athena Collection  Blue Belle

 I discovered I LOVE making hat pins Not sure way, but just mixing and matching to find just the right color combination I throughly enjoy!

The white little butterflies were a perfect addition to this wedding layout.  They are so small and delicate with such cute dainty antenna's.  You can see a few close up pics of the roses I've made.   I've went from different papers... thick and light... then just white paper which are fully inked..  Very enjoyable to sit down and watch TV and make them.  I hope you enjoy my work.

Thanks for stopping by,  I would love to hear from you.   Take care

A challenging layout.. I almost want to call it NAKED lol

If you haven't guessed by now I love the girly layouts, and boy layouts, which you don't see to often, I'm very challenged.  I don't want to add the girly things.. but then.. whats  left???   Well I made this new layout of my two sons.. they are now 22 and 19 as these two pictures where taken a couple summers ago.    I will be the first to say.. I need work on doing mail layouts, I don't know how to make a wow one yet.  But I keep trying.    I hope your can appreicate the work that I DID come up with.  The border on this, has a few different items.  the green string are actually tiny beads that I wired onto some thin wire.. and then sewed it on in the middle of the black and white ribbon ( meant to match Kyle's shirt)  I only poked myself with the sharp pin a couple times as I blindly poked it through the black cloth and paper, so I did pretty good!! lol   I have more male layouts that need to be done so hopefully I can feel more confident with them once completed.   Thanks again for stopping by and thanks for those that leave messages and let me know you have been here.  Much appreciated.   So here we go.

Young Love

Finally have a new layout to share.  This is my daughter Ashley and her boyfriend Dave.    As most of you know I love flowers.. making and growing, but I have never actually tried to make roses, not sure why.  I"ve spent the last couple of months playing around with paper trying to make a roses that looks like a rose.
Most flowers on this layout are roses made by me, just the two really small ones are not.  I'm still practicing, but I hope you enjoyed how these ones turned out on my newest layout.   Thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave a message that you've been here.
