It's that time again!

Time for another sketch up at Twisted Sketches!!

Once again, I decided to use the sketch and scrap for me, instead of for the Christmas gifts that I am slowly making progress on! The twist this week is "flowers" which I usually don't ahve any problem using on my LOs.

I picked up the Simple Stories Destination line awhile back, figuring I would use it for some trip. After looking at my photos from my last trip to Pittsburgh to see my girl Jenn, I knew this line would work well! In going through my many kits, I found a little bottle of gold shimmer spray floating around, kitless and lonely. So I decided I would jazz up the elements on here-chipboard, flower, ticket, and ribbon- and use up that spray. This will definitely be a 2-page LO when I get around to scrapping the rest of this trip!

New Challenge up over at Twisted Sketches

Check out the latest challenge over at Twisted Sketches. This week's twist is white. Since we've already had our first snow of the season, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!

I had fun with the snowflake theme on this LO. I embossed the white cardstock with a snowflake plate, and colored the back of the acrylic snowflake with white paint. I decided to hurry up the drying process with a heat gun, not thinking that it would melt the acrylic. Ooops! But, it curled the ends forward a little, so when I put it on my page, it gave some added dimension. I am still trying to decide if I am going to make a second page to go with this one. But I love the way this one turned out!!

A little toot :)

So today on the Echo Park blog, the featured one of my LOs! It was brought to my attention on a thread over at A Cherry On Top and really made my day. You can check out the blog post here. They spotted my LO of Munchkin with his advent calendar (Counting Down with Chocolate) in the gallery at ACOT and decided to share it.

Thanks for letting me share my little bit of a toot! It's a first for me :)

New Sketch up over at Twisted Sketches

Good morning! This weeks sketch is up over at Twisted Sketches. I had a lot of fun with both the sketch and the twist this week, which is feathers. I found playing with them rather fun and I need to remmeber to use them more in the future. I like the texture they add and the bit of non-girly "fluff" to my LO about me and my non-girly friend Andrea!

So come on over to Twisted Sketches and play along. I can't wait to see what you can do with the twist of "feathers"!

November already!

I can't believe how fast the year has gone by! It seems like the older I get, the faster it goes. So now I need to get moving on all the gifts-albums and altered items- I decided I was going to make this year. I am almost halfway done with the Munchkin album, and just ordered about half the photos I need to start my sis' wedding album. And then there is the Christmas album for my brother and his family, not to mention 3 altered painter's trays and 2 altered boxes...WTH was I thinking??! LOL

Here is another LO for the Munchkin book:
