Gone too long

As you can see I have been away from the blog world for quite a while. I had a very busy end of 2009 and in the midst of it all we made a move from Denver, CO to San Antonio, TX. I am finally settled in here and and ready to get back to scrapping. I have decided to do Project 365 and am really excited about it. Happy New Year to you all :)

Picking Dandelions

Liz released a great sketch this week at The Scrappiest. I had a lot of fun with this one... I wanted to show that there are times when it is ok to embellish with flowers on a boy page. Check out the other great LO's from the entire DT. :)

Recent Sketches

Here are a few of the recent layouts I have done based on Liz's sketches at The Scrappiest. The most current is for Sketch 20.... It is a great sketch with sooo much potential... Give it a try :) It is hard to tell, but I took the same sheet of paper and cut out flower and the swirls so they are elevated with pop dots.

Next is my lo for sketch 19. This is a new summer line I found at Archivers.... The little creatures are actually chipboard animals that were already colored.... but they didn't match my color scheme so I flipped them over and sprayed the plain white side with glimmer mists to get the right match.

And lastly.....Here is my take on sketch 17

Thank you so much for looking :)

out of sorts

So I have been a little out of sorts lately..... just so much going on really. My 5 boys got out of school a week and a half ago and there are always many end of the year festivities. I had a garage sale last weekend - which I prepared for all week and so I haven't done much scrapbooking.. even what I have done I have not been inspired to do ( even with the great sketches...lol) So I am hoping that in the coming weeks I can get my mojo back :)This is for this weeks sketch #16 at The Scrappiest! Check it out- it's a great one!

This is for sketch 14 at The Scrappiest

There is a great Sketch at The Scrappiest this week! This is my version, but check it out and play along.... The other DT members came up with some beautiful LO's!

I used the new summer line from imaginisce ... and on my plain white cardstock I placed flowers and then sprayed glimmer mists over them to create the background. I really love the colors in the new line :)
