My First Altered Project

Good Evening,

I have decided to do the goals album this year with Lisa Valentine. My goal for January was to do an altered project.  This was my first altered project and I was very excited to play with this writing desk kit.

I just realized I didnt take pictures of the inside. But it contains some old Bo Bunny paper entitled Sophia's Notebook. I used three sheets to cover the whole inside. On the outside, I used the timeless script paper, rubons, and the locks that came with the kit. On the front, I used a Donna Salazar antiquities paper with Maya Road envelope, dusty attic, prima flowers, rub ons, etc..

I am so excited about finishing my first scrappy goal of the new year!

TCR #95 - "You"

Good Evening,

I have been quite busy finishing a few projects for my LSS DT application this past week. One of the requirements was to use no pattern paper. I was truly inspired by the colors and the sketch for the TCR#95 Palette. I also used this layout as an opportunity to play with a my new prima brick mask and some glimmermist. Since I was playing around... why not include a handmade flower too. I am thankful for all of Lisa Gregory's flower tutorials posted on Swirlydoos blog. So I used one of her tutorials for the pink flower.

My layout is a picture of my daughter at one week old.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving lovely comments.

Nobody Loves Me Like You Do

Good Evening,

Well I decided to play the American Idol Challenge at Flying Unicorn. It is very exciting... plus who couldn't use $100 Prize to their store. This is the first time my husband truly seemed interest in what I was doing. LOL!  Well I had to choose lyrics of a song created by Randy Jackson, Jennifer L: opez, or Steven Tyler. I think I made this round difficult for no reason. I finally learned that Randy Jackson played for Whitney Houston first and second album. So I choose the song "Nobody Loves Me Like You Do".

For this layout the journaling reads:

I was words without a tune
I was a song still unsung
A poem with no rhyme
A dancer out of time
But now there's you
Baby, nobody loves me like you do.

So if you have some time, stop by the Flying Unicorn forum. They have alot of challenges going on this month and its a very nice active forum.

My SwirlyHues layout

Well I am excited that I was able to finish my SwirlyHues layout before the challenge ended. I was extremely busy during the Christmas break I never finished my layout or really enjoyed my December Swirlydoos Kit. I realize that it is hard for me to scrap Christmas layouts after the holiday but I am definitely going to try my best.

On this layout, I played with some different products. I was able to play with some Creative Inspiration Paints I ordered, modeling paste, and plain cardstock.

I also tried to make my own pinecones off a tutorial I saw (kittiekraft Pinecone tutorial). I added some poinsetta flowers from a prima box I won in 2010 from Swirlydoos.

I am also excited about the January SwirlyHues Challenge. I hope I have time to play to this month.

Thank you for looking at my blog and all the lovely comments.

I'M Back...

Good Morning,

Happy New Year!! I know I have been a little absent from the blog but December is a very slow scrapping month for me. I try to give alot of time to my family during that month. I manage to get back into the swing of things this weekend. So I am posting a layout that I have completed with Prima Romantique papers and flowers. I would like to give a special thanks to Maggi for the extra push I needed to get my mojo flowing with the scrapping. She asked me to participate at Flying Unicorn Round Robin and I had 2 days to complete it.

Also, I wanted to share an older layout created in December for the Swirlydoos Round Robin. This was created with the December Swirlydoos Kit.

I also have 2 unfinished layouts on my desk. A christmas layout and another a mixture of papers from several different Swirlydoos kit. Hopefully, I will have those completed and posted by tomorrow.

I have made some personal and scrapping goals for the new year. I am hoping that starting next week I can work on those goals since I am adjusting back to my working schedule. Thanks for looking and Have a great day!
