Mojo Monday

Ok, today I got my MOJO on. This is the first time I participated in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I used patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and Bazzill Basics. The flower is from Hampton Art stamps and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I really enjoyed myself today.  My son started soccer camp today and the uninterrupted time was great!! You can check out the sketch @ mojomonday.blogspot.com

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #83

Happy Sunday Everyone,

Gerald's Family Vacation Scrapbook Page

My brother Gerald and his family went to the beach for their family vacation a few weeks ago. This is the pic that they posted on Facebook. So I thought that I might do a scrapbook page for them. This is unlike any page I have done before. In the past I would put the pics down on the page and then add the embellishments. And usually I have more than on pic on a page. It is as if the pic becomes one of the embellishments for the scrapbook page!!! I think it came out very nice, especially considering I use to think it was a waste of time to do a whole page for one pic. I have totally changed my mind on that, one pic is just enough.

I am going to put it in the mail tomorrow. Hopefully it will get there in one piece. I am going to get my brother to buy one of those frames specifically for scrapbook pages!!! I hope they like it. It took a lot of time.

Brother's Birthday Card

I made this card for my brother. Can a male card have a flower on it??? I really like the card. Ilike the stamping that I did. That is new for me.

Finally Friday Challenge

Hey everybody,

It is Friday and I am home scrapping and skyping with Ericka. We both took the Finally Friday Challenge from Kwerner (our favorite card maker). Here is my interpretation of the Fabulous Birthday card. We had to use a punch element. Let me know what you think!!!!

Thank yous for Aunt Geraldine

I decided to make a set of "thank you" cards for my cousins. Their mother, my Aunt Geraldine, recently passed away and I wanted them to have some nice "thank you" cards to give out to those special people. They have been poking fun at my craft, especially when I told them that I was spending a day at home scrapping and skyping with my bestfriend, Ericka in Maryland. I am making 15 so they will each have 5 cards to share. So in this post you will see four of the prototypes that I made. Leave a comment and tell me what you think!!!

I am soooooo excited. I finally have shelves for my carfting space in my bedroom. The space is not big and I really want a scrapbook room. But for now in this moment I absolutely LOVE my crafting space. My Dad put the shelves up for me. It gives me so much more space on my table. The shelves have now become home to my texture boutique, all my cricut cartridges, my box on embellishments, crop-o-dile, itop, and so much more crafting stuff. It is great!!!!! One of the best thing about the shelves it that underneath the last shelf I wrapped some twine around the shelf rack and I was able to display some of the cards I made.

In the picture, you can see that my crafting space is neat and tidy, which is a rare thing. But I wanted my Dad to see his handy work without all the mess. Of course his first question was, "How long will it stay like this?" We all know that the sign of a real crafter is a messy table!!!! Thanks, DAD!!!!!!
