Great, Great Grandmother / Beautiful

These two layouts are more that I have been working on for my niece Lindsay.  Brooke and Austin are two of her children with their great, great, grandmother at her 100th birthday.  The bottom layout is her three children at Easter.  I wish my photography skills were better but the photos are really much better in person.  I used a lot of items on each layout.  I used modeling paste, drywall tape, distressed ink, and lots, and lots of other goodies.

Thanks for Looking!!!

Eddie & Me

I love this piece!  This is a photo of my husband and I a few years ago.  I have seen many videos of using scrapbook supplies and adding it to canvas.  However, this is my first attempt at it and I believe it  looks pretty good.  The latest video I watched was Gabrielle Pollacco.  Her work is so amazing!  I found lots of goodies in my stash with various lace, paints, etc.  There is way too much to say exactly what I used but at least you can get the idea.  There is still room for improvement which I do intend to explore.  I found this idea to be completely amazing!!

Thanks for looking!!

Seaside / Remember This Day / together / Forever

These four layouts are for my neice (Lindsay) album.  She asked me to put together a 12 X 12 album for her son Austin who is 12 (I believe).  I used so many different items and then added lots of goodies.  These layouts took my awhile to complete.

You see - about 4 weeks ago it had rained and I decided to go out on our covered patio and then I noticed the little bird feeder was empty.  I was barefooted and stepped out onto our deck which has been sealed but it was still wet and I forgot that it becomes rather slicky!  Obviously I took a nasty fall and both feet came off of the desk and I fell onto my right arm near my shoulder.  I first thought it was dislocated but obviously I could move it.  I went to the hospital and lucky for me it was not broken but all the tendons, muscles, legimates, are all swollen.  It still hurts to lift my arm but it is coming along.  At least it has not hindered my scrapbooking!!  LOL

Thank you for much for looking!!  Hope you have a wonderful day!

Beautiful / Caring

I finally got a new photo of my daughter Mandy.  The colors have been changed and I love it!  I wish I could tell you what all I used but I have had these papers for quiet sometime.  I did do a lot of work on this layout.  I used a templet on the birdcages and branch plus the triangles.  I added 2 colors of ink for the background plus tore pieces of paper and adhered them to the page.  I found a chipboard piece which I added white paint and then used Perfect Pearls to make the colors green and blue.  I used netting tape, cheesecloth and lots of goodies to this layout.  Most of the items I have had for a long time!!

Here is a list of some of the items:

Floral Paper is by Melissa Frances
Green Paper is by The Paper Studio
Liquitex Moldeling Paste
