PCC has their 150th Magazine Monday inspiration this week! Congrats to them! I have played along with quite a few and after seeing this week's, I knew what I wanted to try. Here is the cover:

Here is my card:

I used my watercolor pencils to draw a line then gently painted along the edge making sure to leave some white space. I got just the effect I was going for. A sticker and flower and the card is finished.

I hope you play along. Thanks PCC for another wonderful challenge.

I zeroed in on the butterfly made out of strawberries. This led me to this thank you card which also had some reds, oranges and greens from the cover.

Thanks for stopping by!

Not Just on Father's Day

I am up today at the Helmar blog with a  Father's Day layout!

My husband has been a wonderful dad to our children - not just on Father's Day but every day. He is there to teach them, to help them and to love them. I enjoyed digging out some old photos!

I love the fact that no matter which of Helmar's adhesives I use, when I go back to look at this layout in a month or a year, everything will still be secure!

Here is a link to many of their scrapbooking products.

This paper is from Recollections Mixed Media Collage Pad.  The background was created using texture paste mixed with Glimmer Mist Coffee Shop by Tattered Angels. I also  misted using a stencil.

Sand Between your Toes

It has been a busy few weeks since we got back from our family vacation to Italy! I am just now finding time to get back to my desk.

I wanted to get back to making mixed media canvases and was inspired to make one for the cottage.

I used PCCs Monday Magazine inspiration

And here is my canvas

I love a nice sandy beach and the relaxing sound of the water!

Thank you for stopping by!

You are invited

Summer is in full swing here! Temps have warmed up quickly and the cottage is ready to host a party! We just need to make some invitations! I have a quick and fun invite for you to try.

I grabbed some fliers from my recycle bin and made this paper! For details on the project please visit my post over at ArnoldGrummer's Papermaking!!

Helmar 450 Quick Dry  was the perfect adhesive  for securing the ribbon quickly and easily!

These were so much fun!!

Thanks for visiting here and over at Adrnoldgrummer's!

And it tied in with a layout I was just finishing of my dad in the Navy. He died when i was 12 so I don't have many more details than he served in the Korean War. These pics are from 1945 of him with his mom and dad.

I am Back but will be Leaving:):)
