This is for Creative Scrappers sketch #224, I just loved working on this sketch! The little girl is my now grown Goddaughter at our wedding years ago. I have such a love for this photo, it is one of those rare moments that are just magical and I have yet to tire of scrapping it!!
The flower is made with white cardstock and my own crazy mist mix. I also colored the title and stars with a mixture of my own colored mists, they are so much prettier irl! Paper is Websters.

I created this for the sketch challenge at Creative Scrapper's sketch #223. This is my great nephew impressing Auntie with his muscles! I did rotate the sketch to accommodate the vertical photo.The metallic paper behind the photo is a piece of card stock from my mist spray box it is really reflective in the photo, but it has some really cool color variations in it, and I love the way it is curled and uneven/ I made the brown flower, with a pattern from McGills. I know that the trend is to use small pictures and leave white space but that is just not my thing. i want the photo to be the focal point, after all that is the whole purpose,
(to me anyway). I have never been good at following the masses I guess!

This is my Dad and Krissy playing go fish the night before our wedding (1993) It has long been a favorite picture, even tho it is out of focus. I think it just adds to the charm! I did this for the challenge at the Paper Mixing Bowl this month. The theme is family game night so I just had to scrap it! I tried to do a clean and simple LO but my shabby chic heart just coudn't resist a few shabby touches! Many thanks to the wonderful girls at the Paper Mixing Bowl for your awesome challenges, and sweet comments!

I did this f0r the sketch challenge #222 at Creative Scrapper this month. I am very new at sketch challenges even tho I have been scrapping a long time. I am hoping that this will help me define my style and improve my work as I go along.

I started by applying gesso. and then misting with several colors, once dried I stamped with my gorgeous script stamp; and then using some rubons. I applied an heirloom gold mist over everything once I had finshed my flower cluster, trinkets and bling.

This is a banner I made for my challenge over at the Flying Unicorn. The challenge is to make a patriotic themed LO or altered project. I made it for my great nephew's birthday and also as a welcome gift for his new room, I used Athentiques's Glory, I adore it! The papers are amazing to work with!

This is a patriotic candle jar that I did for a challenge over at the Flying Unicorn this month. I used scraps from my Glory (Authentique) papers and some stars cut out on my Silhoutte Cameo0. The flowers were from a wonderful RAK won at the Flying Unicorn and are from Dusty Attic. The candle was from the dollar bin at Micheals.

I did this LO for the July recipe challenge at the Paper Mixing Bowl. I used the Glory line from Authentiqe. I took the photo at my sister's in Nebraska where I spent the fourth.I stuck pretty close to the original sketch since I am very new to working with sketches.
I am new at this whole blogging adventure, so please bear with me as I learn and grow. I hope to have an informative and creative blog someday! I am an avid vintage/romantic style scrapper. I have been scrapping a for several years tho I took a long break for health reasons. I am disabled with lots of free time on my hands to scrap and play. I am very happily married to the man of my dreams and live in Minnesota.
