Lil' Fairy

This lovely little fairy is my granddaughter Paityn!  She is almost 4 and she loves to sing and dance and it all is much better once she is all dressed up!  Anyway, this is her in a little dress, wings, gloves, a purse, a masked, and lots of jewelry.  I used Kaisercraft Secret Admirer Collection and Prima Annalee Collection - Avondale.  I sew around the edges and then distressed and inked.  Please see below the list of items that I used:

Let It Snow

This cute little picture are my sweet granddaughters...Paityn in the purple and Kenzie in the pink.  This is Christmas Day and to our surprise it started to snow.  They were very excited and they got on their little coats and went outside.  There was just enough snow to cover very lightly the yard and bushes.  Since we live in Texas it is very rare that we get any snow!

I used a blue cardstock and a light blue paper which I sprinkled with Gesso paint to make it look like snow.  I had left over a flower topping (at the left corner) which I painted with brown, pink, and white.  I then added white paint to a top of a small bottle and made the circles.  I found in my closet a piece of Corrogated cardboard which I also painted white.  I added lots of Prima flowers as well.

Here is a list of items that I used:

Prima - Flowers, With you sign

White Lace - Hobby Lobby
White pearls - Hobby Lobby
Fabscrap - Flower at top of page
White Doilie
Maya Roads - Cardboard Snowflakes
Blue & White small snowflakes - Michaels

Joy Peace Love

I love this sweet photo of my grandkids...Kenzie and Colby.  My oldest daughter bought them the cute little pajamas with their name embroidered.  Therefore my daughter-in-law took them to have their photo taken.  Kenzie is 4 and Colby is 19 months and they both happen to be laughing.  How precious is that!!  I used mostly items that I have had in my stach for awhile.  I used 3 kinds of Christmas paper and lots of goodies which includes poinsettas, stick pins, ribbon, die cut snowflakes, ribbon, tags, and so forth.

I hope you enjoyed looking at this layout as much as I enjoyed making it.  This will be given to their mother and dad in a special album.

Thanks again for looking!

Heart Shape Tag

This heart shape cloth was given to the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.  We were asked to place our photo and the reason we scrapbook on it.  This is going to be used to make a banner to hang in the store and on Facebook.  Since the heart is only 4" wide I was rather limited on what I could say except For Love of Family.  There are a lot of reasons to scrapbook but this is my main reason to show all the glorious photos of my family.  

Here is a list of items that I used:

Heart Cloth 
Prima Flowers
Maya Roads Stick Pins
Maya Roads Tage (2 rectangles)
Maya Roads Bird and small Heart
Americana Blue & Red Paint
Zva  Pearls
Red & White berries - Hobby Lobby

This is a little angel I made for The Crafty Scrapper!  I loved working on this.  We were asked to design something on the dress form and I collect angels so this is my creation.  I used lots of lace on this.  The bodice is strips of papers which I glued on and then added a border.  I also used from Tim Holtz "angel
 wings.  Once all this was completed I took a clear gold glitter and sprayed it to everything to make it sparkle.

This is a closer look at the base of the dress form.

 This is the mid-section of the dress form.  I used 2 different lace and pinned it up using crystal snowflakes.  I used ribbon with gold beads and another one to hang off of the waist plus a pretty white flowers.

I hope you enjoyed looking at this little angel.  It took me several days to complete but I like the look.

Thank you for taking a peek!
