Quick short post tonight.
Wow, didn't think I was going to make it in the challenge this week, been a crazy week!!
Managed to whip something up today. Seems like everyone is into spools since Wendy posted her Arts Parts on her blog, so thought I would give one a try. Can't wait for her Art Parts to hit the stores!! The challenge this week on Linda's blog was Tinted Vision Fragments. This was my first time doing this technique, not the best but will diffently do it again.

I'm off tomorrow morning to go to the lake camping with Landi & family. Can't wait, love watching the boys having fun in the water. And I'm looking forward to a few days of relaxation!!
Have a good one!

Here's my submission for the CCC #6 on Linda's blog. This week we were to do a multi-medium collage, I use this technique a lot and love it!! I was in the process of cutting out a lot of the birds for a class so decided to go with that. And for the life of me I always cut off the legs & twig, I haven't done one yet where I have left them on, what's with that?? This week it is sponsored by Eclectic Paperie, they have the best service, love ordering from them!! The Compendium of Curiosities Challenge's have been so much fun and everyone is doing just an awesome job, beautiful work out there!! If you haven't checked it out yet go to

Have a good one!

Lost and Found

Hi Everyone,
I want to thank everyone for the nice comments on my posts, I appreciate them so much!!
I have been super busy lately, so I've been doing the pop in and run game again!! Geezzzz I don't like that!! Hoping to find some time today to post and comment on other blogs etc.

A few weeks ago I was rummaging through some stuff and came across these old pictures I had. I had planned to scrapbook them and haven't done it yet (some day)! I thought these are to cool to lay around in boxes, so tryed to think of something to do with them and enjoy them. I have done a lot of classes with these stars and thought that would be perfect!! Then thought Tim's Lost and Found paper would look awesome on it!! I have had his paper for awhile now and just have been admiring it and couldn't bring myself to cut it up, I got brave and cut it!! I think I should just wall paper the walls with it, I love that paper!! So the star has been hanging on the wall with just the Lost and Found paper on it, which that looked pretty cool to without any pictures etc. on it. I finally sat down on Sat. and finished it. The pictures of it aren't the best, lighting wasn't to good and couldn't take it outside, but it looks pretty cool in person! I really like how some areas turned out and some not, might have to do a little tweaking on it. Still need to add some fibers & ribbon to the top. But now I get to enjoy those old pictures of family members everyday! Love that!!

Tim's last distress inks and this paper match perfectly!! I used Tim's rusted grunge technique on the frames. I wasn't to sure how that would turn out as I didn't want them to look like metal and I was using chipboard, but it worked out great! And Tim's and Wendy's stamps worked out perfectly!! All of Tim's ideaology pieces etc. work out fantastic with old pictures!! And of course GB & GP, just can't get enough of that stuff!!! Have you been checking out his blog for sneak peeks? This morning he has his new Configurations, now those look cool!! Can't wait until all of his new items hit the stores, might need to take out a loan though!! lol

Have a good one!!

CCC wk#5

This weeks challenge on Linda's blog was to use Distress Embossing Powder. I used Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder for the frame. When I first saw the stamp of the lady, I thought I would probably never get that one. But the more I seen it used I thought it was pretty cool. Now I have used her in a few projects and love the stamp! I've been working on a project for a few weeks now, finally sat down and finished yesterday! I will post it tomorrow.

Have a good one!!

CCC wk#3

Here's my submission for the Compendium of Curiosities challenge week#3 over on Linda's blog . This has been so much fun! I have had Tim's book for quite awhile and have done some of the techniques, but this challenge is inspiring me to try ones that I might not have gotten around to for awhile. I used one of Tim's embossing folders on this one.

I have been doing a lot of classes at work, one the other night that my boss asked if I would do at the spur of the moment, 6 women wanted to do the class that we had done the previous week that they weren't able to attend, don't want to discourage anyone from the classes so I agreed! Talk about stress, I was flying around like a mad women trying to get things cut out and ready. The project had a lot of pieces to cut out and granted Tim's die cuts makes it easier but wow, don't think I want to do that again! I also have been doing kids classes every Tues. the class is supposed to be limited to 10-12 students but my boss is letting more students in and the classes have been averaging 15+, TO MANY!!!! She is such a softy!! Getting smart though, NO PAINTING!!! They wouldn't be quite so bad if they were all the same age, but they range in age from 5 to 13. Never thought I would say it, but I'm looking forward to the end of summer!! Speaking of summer, we have been super hot here 93 yesterday and supposed to be 95 or above today! We get such high humidity that it get's unbearable to be outside!! Guess I will just have to stay inside and play!! Yayyy!! I'm hoping to get a few projects done this weekend (my other tote for one).

Hope all of you have a wonderful 4th of July!!

Have a good one!!
