Let's Scrap Layout Day!

Hello my friends & welcome visitors!

Today is the day for a new sketch at Let's Scrap Sketches this is a great sketch!

And here is my take on the sketch.

You can click on the photo to make it larger.  I know that I am a little "State Proud" I just love the State I have lived in all my life.  I have traveled all over the world; but I am always so happy to return to my little home in my little town here on the Chesapeake Bay.  I love that I can watch the bay change with the seasons.  I have to say that the bay in autumn is so lovely!  Almost all of the recreational boaters are off the water and you can drift lazily along enjoying the crisp fall air and sunlight as it glints off the water.  

I don't think I would have made this layout if I were not on the Let's Scrap Design Team.  I am so grateful that they have reminded me how important it is to "catch these memories" while I can.  I would also like to remind you that we have several challenges going on over at Let's Scrap right now.  We have a challenge from our DT Suzanne you can find that HERE.  There is also a Month Long Sketch Challenge, to read about that, please  go HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by my friends and thank you so much for all of your comments!  I hope you are having a lovely Autumn!


Still On An Owl Kick

Greetings & Salutations!

Hello My Friends & Welcome Visitors,

I hope you all had a nice weekend!  Have you ever started reading a book and you just couldn't put it down?  Well I did that Saturday night.  I started reading "Gone Girl"  wow!  What a good book!  I haven't finished yet, so if you comment, please don't tell me how it ends...anyway, I looked up and the dawn was breaking!  I read all night!

Remember last week when I made that birthday owl card for my friend Brenda?  Well, at the same time, I made him into a Halloween Owl.  It is the same Cameo Silhouette SVG, just made differently. 

All of the papers I used to make this guy are from Graphic 45 "An Erie Tale"  The banner is from stash and the skittles are from Double Click - AKA Abusybee.  I am sad because I didn't have my chalk with me so I could not chalk him.  I think he would look better chalked.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Double Click - AKA A Busy Bee - Spooky Fun Skittles Release

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!


OSAAT Challenge 222!

Good Morning My Friends and Welcome Visitors!

Today is a new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time.  This challenge is #222 "Anything Goes with a Butterfly".   Here is my card:

Isn't that fairy adorable? You can click on the card to make it bigger.  I can see some of my goth friends really making her into something very dark and cool.  If you would like to purchase her; her the name of the digital stamp by Stitchy Bear is "Fairy Dreams" and you can purchase her HERE.  I started out by making her a png file and putting the quote next to her body.  I then colored her with my copic markers and added some sparkle with my stickels.  I cut a circle with my Spellbinders standard circles mental die, the I cut a piece of s-e-i 6x6 paper (Field Notes) with my Spellbinders Picot Edged Circle, and then a piece of 6x6 (We are Memory Keepers) paper with Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles.  I made the 5x7 card with my cameo silhouette.  The butterflies were punched from scrap paper with my Martha Stewart butterfly punch, the little bottle of pixie dust and the gems have been in my collection forever.

I hope that you will stop by One Stitch At A Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created and then play along with us!  The prize this time is the October 5th Image Prize Pack!  What a great prize!  I wish I could win!

Happy Birthday Brenda

Hello My Friends and Welcome Visitors,

I had a little cigar box class in my new crafting room.  My friends Renee & Brenda came over and Brenda taught us how to turn cigar boxes into fantastic beautiful works of art...um...Brenda's are...mine isn't done yet, I think I will get better as I go along.  Anyway, today is Brenda's Birthday so I made her this little Owl Card.

And here is Brenda getting her card.

Happy Birthday Brenda!  Even though it is rainy and dreary out I know that you will have a bright and beautiful day because you brighten the whole world around you!  You are a wonderful lady full of love and joy. I am so glad you are a part of my life.   I hope we can get together again soon!
