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!

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.
