Use emboss resist technique????

This week at Paper Blooms Blog our challenge was to use the emboss resist technique. Of course I not being into card making as much as scrapping - thought to myself "what the hec is that??? Thankfully we have the world wide web - all I had to do was type it in and I instantly got about 100 lovely bloggers telling me how to do and showing me through the wonders of UTUBE. We could either do a layout, card or alter something. I decided to do a layout of my daughter's latest school picture. I used some of Leah's beautiful blooms as embellishments and then decided to use the resist emboss technique as my title lettering. Check out all of Leah's beautiful creations - Paper Blooms ETSY Store! She has even added mini-kits to her store. Please go over to Paper Blooms Blog and join in on the fun challenge - it does NOT have to include any of Leah's blooms - just incorporate the emboss resist technique in your project. It is really easy and it gives a beautiful effect! Have an AWESOME Wednesday! Don't forget to check out my fellow DT's creations - they all have such amazing talent!!!!

This week at Paper Blooms Blog our challenge was to do a red, white & blue themed project. We could either do a layout, card or alter something. I decided to do a layout of my sweet step mom that passed last year. I used some of Leah's beautiful blooms and pearl stick-pins to help attain the blue and white and then I choose a rose dp because Linda was always, " our rose among the thorns". Check out all of Leah's beautiful creations - Paper Blooms ETSY Store! She has even added mini-kits to her store. Please go over to Paper Blooms Blog and join in on the fun challenge - it does NOT have to include any of Leah's blooms - just incorporate red, white and blue in your project. Have an AWESOME day!

All Hail Princess Toot......

Some of you maybe wondering what I am referring to, others may know because they follow Callista's fantastic blog over at Down the Rabbit Hole. If not let me bring you up to speed. Callista started a fun game called, "Cinnabun across America" where she sent a hat out to some of her followers and the hat resembles a certain Princess' hair style. Yep, you got it "Princess Leia." Ok, well my daughter and I did it and then we sent it to Maggi over at Katamommy Damacy .
Well her entire family joined in the fun including her sweet daughter. I just could not resist scrapping this beautiful child, so I did. I sent it off to Maggi as a RAK. Now, tell me is she not the cutest thing ever?????

Paper Blooms Challenge #6 / Blog Candy Giveaway!

Yes, another week has just seemed to zoom by! This week over at Paper Blooms Blog the challenge is Mother/Woman of Influence gift/card/LO (including woman of influence as not everyone has a good relationship or has a mom still alive). I was able to use Leah's beautiful red & black blooms from her shop Paper Blooms ETSY Store to make an Altered Mom Notebook. Even though my Moms aren't alive anymore - I made it in their memory to Thank them for everything they did to help me be who I am today. THANKS you are in my thoughts and heart everyday!

Now, since I don't have a Mom to give this Altered Notebook to, I thought I would offer it up as some candy. So, here is the plan, if you would like to have this yummy altered notebook, just leave me a comment telling me so - and if you aren't one of my followers - please sign up to be one - so I can sign up and follow your blog as well - you know how much I love everyone's blog and inspirations. So, if you would like it and if you want to spread the word, spread the word. I will have my daughter draw a name on Sunday and I will drop it in the mail to you on Monday.
I wish everybody could win - but I will let you know who gets this candy on Sunday!

Happy Anniversary

Today I really got a lot of scrapping done. The weather was just to cold and rainy to do the needed lawn work - so I locked myself in my scrap room. Oh darn! LOL! I got several pages done from our 2008 vacation and I also did this layout in honor of some good friends. Their 11th Year Wedding Anniversary was in March and we took them out to dinner to celebrate. We really had a fun night! Hope everyone has an awesome rest of the weekend.
