Happy Fall

Well once again i'm not keeping up well here.......but i had an awesome weekend participating in 3 online crops at Scrap Fanatics, Life Preservers and Savvy N Sassy (which goes all week long so lots of time to join in and play). I've been having fun stamping and making cards too and using up old patterned papers from my stash (after removing it all from the zip bags and placing into upright jumbo magazine file holders which takes up way less space and is easy to flip through).
Here are some recent creations and i must mention the RED flower layered on the green, the bottom is punched from acrylic packaging, alcohol inked and stamped and then heated with my embossing gun.... is this a cool element and great way to recycle !!

well thats all for today but i really am going to try and post at least once a week if not more often......enjoy the last days of september.

love making cards, they are so quick and fun and use up scraps and small pieces of paper and ribbon etc... discovered this great sketch blog through Lil Scrappers (a new 'local" site i discovered). Anyway, here are the two cards i made based on the weeks sketch and bonus sketches. So many possibilities. And a few layouts from our wedding album that i finished this week (just need a nice album to put the layouts and the pocket pages in to finish)

Where did it go?

the summer, can't believe its Sept 1st and time to go back to school and work tomorrow. ugh. and where has the past 20 years gone.....Greg and i have been married 20 years this wednesday and its so hard to imagine - that's a long time yet looking through our wedding photos makes it seem like just yesterday we said our vows. I was THRILLED when i was cropping at the lss and discovered this Beautiful K and Co paper line, bought some, and when i came home it hit me that it was perfect for our wedding pictures. Royal blue is not an easy color to scrap and thats why its taken me 8 years to get at it. So here is my first acrylic album, using K and Co papers and Hambly (mostly) transperencies as well as various rub ons.
