I love it when mistakes turn out so wonderfully!

SO this layout was going to be my submission for SSC29 but I didnt read the rules completely and totally botched the challenge! I started over and all is well! But For this little mistake it turned out to be a rather awesome Lay out if I do say so myself! I got Cardboard right but not much else lol! I just saw this yellow card board from my DH's Doc Martin boots and had to cut it up and scrap it! SO i painted on it first and just let some stuff spew all over the place. The photo is from our western Carribian cruise we took in 2004. This is my daughter and my husband in a kayak on the beach! I am really loving clustering right now! I think all my Lay outs are starting to look the same LOL! Most of these things here came in kits so I don't know what they are as far as manufacturer but what i do remember is The Red swirly sticker is Hambly, The paper flowres are Primas, The stickers on the photo are MM The Go see do stamp and finger pointing stamp are Studio Calico Originals. The PP is American crafts, Notebook paper Unknown, the little button and crown were little embellies in a kit...either studio calico or Poppy ink dont know which!

Here is the real Submission for SSC#29 Rules were followed...It was a really hard one for me...I'm not sure why Perhaps it was the thoughts I had to write down...I have a constant thought stream at all times so catching one is REALLY hard..or that I had to end it in a question...felt unfinished. Whatever it was I do love this one it turned out fabulously! Great colors and just fun!

SSC#29 Rules:
".. I just had to come on ladies .. don't fret .. this week is easy breezy ..

So whatcha gonna do with some cardboard .. come on .. it is all around you .. just gotta figure out how and where .. dont matter just use it ..

2. Use notebook paper on your LO
3. Use at least 2-3 embellishments

Project Catwalk Week 6 - Dream Big

OK so Week six of Project Catwalk over at SISTV and I was WAY excited about my LO this time around...Its absolutely one of my favorites that I have done of myself so far! I edited the photo with Cross Processing effect in photo shop rounded the edges and sanded and inked the edges as well I cut out a sunburst on my Cricut with some sass paper and painted some grunge and chip board I free handed the flower in the middle because it was totally fun! Then framed it with Daisy D's Rub on dispenser! ( SO cool Love these things! ) And of course some cute little butterflies! I love the Drama on this one. The challenge was to create drama with very few products...I think I met the challenge...but I might have used more products then most the others, I don't really care this ones for me anyway!

Project Catwalk Week 5 Wall Hanging

This is my submission for the Project Catwalk Week5 at SIS tv...I missed last week but i was able to get this one done and BOY do my hands hurt! Our challenge was to make a wall hanging at least 4x6 with the primary material as DENIM! I had plenty of ideas flow through my brain as I picked through the thrift store trying to get some inspo....What i bought wasn't working for me at all....so I didn't submit it till the last minute...naturally this is where i thrive... last minute procrastination! LOL SO i grab my supplies determined that i was going to make these thrift store finds work...so I started painting..then i grabbed the jeans and started cutting and after an hour of deliberation on what that flower was going to look like....and after a VERY sore hand! (sewing denim SUX!!) I got the finished product! I am rather pleased with it...Everyone's submissions so far have been amazing also!

Update the ole blog - and other ramblings

Its all new!! And fresh and LOOOK at the cute little blog birdie!:D Ive added a lot of new stuff! MORE will be added too! I'm having lots of fun with it! Enjoy some of my favorite music that inspires me while I create! Music helps me a lot! I created a banner as well! Please see the side bar for credit given to the designers of the elements used! I really like this one a lot better! It flows better too! Enjoy!

Im kinda in a bit of a slow creative period because Ive been working loads of hours at work. We are down 4 people so we have 5 people doing the work of 9 or 10 its been rough...they wont be replacing any of the people we are down either! REALLY frustrating! Ive been searching for a new job I hope i get something here really soon! Also its back to school time so weve been getting ready for that. My daughter is the most excited second grader on the planet! She wants school to start right now! LOL!

OH it is thee that stifles me!

I notice more and more what has been stifling my creativity...I work in a gray building with gray walls gray floors gray tile gray bathrooms grey break room grey EVERYWHERE I have NO windows NOTHING there is a small patch of grass outside I go and lay on during my break which helps break up the monotony of greyness that attacks me everyday! SO on top of the monotoned office they are constantly changing things every day and it gets so frustrating mostly because your already feeling drained because of the colors but because you feel how much more of my blood sweat and tears do they want!! Im TAPPED out! SO I have decided that I should probably look at other avenues because I MUST create! Otherwise my thoughts consume me! I really wish I could just stay home again...but I feel bad staying home when I have a child in school all the time now....Ah well we will see! Only time will tell!

LOVIN this Digi stuff

Ok I have been SOOOO in love with doing digi's that I have even learned how to make my own elements! They are soooo much fun! I want to do nothing else! SO I made some stamps/brushes in PS CS and I have to say they turned out quite awesome! Shown in the Layout to the left are some cool stuff I have learned how to make! AH so much awesome funness! OK so underneath the smaller pic you will see some bubble wrap looking stuff YEA that's a bubble wrap stamp I made On photo shop! its a bit bigger than that but For placement reasons this is all you get to see! ALSO that fab scallop I made that too AND I can change it to WHATEVER color I WANT! So awesome!

On this LO I only made one of the elements That's the white scallop behind the pic! YEA it was sooo fun too! With digi there are NO scrap boundaries and NO limits! I am having so much fun! I still love my paper scrappin but I'm currently addicted to digi!
