Wedding Frenzy

Not quite a frenzy but getting there!

So far I have the programs done


And the tags for the favors



The table number holders


And this afternoon I am cutting corks for the name card holders!

t- 24 days and counting!!!!!!!

Frightful and delightful

I love winning prizes and I love using the prize to make a thank you card for the person I won the card from.

Last week I won a giveaway from Red Lead. It consisted of these wonderful Halloween stencils as well as some charms and wood tokens. I was wracking my brain to think of a way to make a thank you and found this wonderful thank you quote!






I used a striped card which I splattered with purple paint. Also added purple circles both to the card and the tag. Stencil the large raven and some others around the edges.


I am loving the looks of this! 

Thank you Red Lead!

Monday Magazine Inspiration

Here is this week's PCC Monday inspiration

And here is my card. Using some of that washi stash


Quick and simple!

Color Run

I have wanted to complete one of this since I heard about it. As luck would have it, Beth ( my son's fiance) had signed up with her sister to do one. Her sister decided she did not want to go so I signed up instead. Beth is new to running and had not done any race before. I knew I could not run but would job/walk/run as well as I could. Beth was just giddy the entire morning. We got close to the front of the start and she left me about a block into the race. She ran her best time and when I finished she was by the stage where they were all throwing packets of powder. She was color from head to toe!





I used the Pagemaps sketch to document this



I used watercolors which is why the paper is a bit wrinkled. 

Art Journal Play

Inspriation from all over! 

Journal 52 Friendship prompt and Tracy's Monday show.

My Best Creations

Tackling the Scraparoundtheworld Mood Board



And here is my layout


I was drawn to the colors of the board.  To me the quote about creating a wonderful life made me think of the my kids. My life is filled with such happy memories and the best times are when I am with them. The dandelion like flower with pieces blowing away reminded me that they are now grown -- both with successful jobs, both engaged to be married and living away from home.

Weekend at the Lake

As we were at the lake this weekend, I realized I had photos from June that i had not scrapped yet.

I found this wonderful sketch on PaperSecrets

There was a twist and that was to use each of the letters in the word travel.

Here is my layout

I used Tim Holtz stencil, rays, anchors, vellum, envelope and layers.

PCC Monday Inspiration

I love this week's inspiration at PCC

I wanted to make an umbrella - something I don't think I have ever done. 

I used it for this card.
