3 Layouts

When we were in San Diego I fell in love with these painted murals all over the streets there! So, I used a Prima Paintable and came up with this LO. I think it is hot.....

Why did I do a LO on a shoe? Well, because I LOVED this shoe! I wanted this shoe, but they were out of it in my size. I have looked all over for one just like it and I can't find any. So, in memory of the shoe I did this LO! I know, I am crazy....truth of the matter is I had the PP an stuff that I wanted to use and the picture matched.

More painted murals. It was late when I got this one done and it really makes no sense.

Thanks Marinka!

I got my second and final swap kit for the month. It came from my friend Marinka. She made this beautiful kit with pinks, browns, and greens. Now, granted this kit would be quite lovely for LOs of my daughter (which I have lots of to do!), but did I do that? Nope! I actually used it with pictures of my youngest son who is all boy and I love the way it turned out! I am even going to use this kit to document him riding his bike for the first time. TFL!

4 New Ones

I went to my LSS and saw this fantastic 7 gypsie stuff and Melody Ross (I think that is the name. It is a new company)and new I had to have it! The CS is Bazil swiss dots from my stash.

The next three LOs are made with the kit Tara sent me. I have done a total of five form her kit and there is still a lot left over. I am really loving playing with suck a colorful collection of goodies. On the prima paintable I used watercolor pencils, water pencil crayons, Glimmer Mist, and Smooches. I had never used Smooches before and did not know what the big deal was about it, but I LOVE it!

Junk to Art

What do you get when you give an artist an old frame, beat up dictionary, a few vintage buttons, and sheet music?


I made this last night in about three hours. Isn't it beautiful? I wanted to make it for my purple scrap studio, but when I finished it my family wanted to see it every day too! I was so touched by how much they liked it! It is now happily hanging on a wall for all to see! :-)

Sweet Time

I am a pretty quick scrapper, but this week I have been so slow. It is like I am taking my sweet time and I don't have a lot of it!

It took me all day to complete this LO and I don't know why so long. I painted the hearts, back stitched them, glimmer misted the page, and used flowers from my flower swap on this.

We had a swap at OSU where we out together a kit from our stash and mailed it to another lady. This LO is made from the kit Tara put together for me. I made the flower on the cricut and used the metallic rubs she sent on the flower and glimmer misted it.
