Its done!!!!

What a great day!!! Here's my visit to Tora Tattoo

This is Annabella...such a sweetheart and sooo talented!!

Here is the finished product! This is my left forearm in case you can't tell from the photo.

It took about an hour and a half but wow I'm so happy with it!!

It didn't even hurt, just kind of an annoying scratching, its a bit tender now but I'll live...

This place is seriously amazing, the owner did my first tattoo about 12 years ago.

So...what'cha all think??? Needless to say, Lola is very pleased..LOL

LSC#42 Mad about Plaid

Holy boxes BATMAN!!!!!

Well this is what has been keeping me BUSY the past couple weeks.

I can now do my happy dance..they are done done done!!!!

A friend at work ordered 65 of these for wedding favors for her brothers wedding.

I matched the invitation colours as best as I could and believe it or not...almost a perfect match.........

SPEAKING of perfect match, these are The Perfect match templates from PAPERTREY!!!..

Whoo hoo, thanks GAWD for these I tell ya, they sure made this project easier but it was still a butt load of cutting, scoring, folding, pinching and gluing..!!

These are actually pretty sizable- they measure 3x2x4.

Sooooooo, 65 8.5x11 sheets of Papertrey Black cardstock, 80 peices of Bazzill 12x12, 2 bottles of Beacon 3 in 1, 20 pieces of patterned paper, 9 rolls of delicious satin ribbon and POW finished.

I used Papertrey's Favor it as the stamp- it says Hugs and Kisses from the Mr and Mrs...how friggin cute is that..(thanks Dee)

2S4U Thank You.......

Ok so I quickly did this card yesterday, no crafting last night...

just had to see HOUSE!!!

OMG.. what a brilliant show...now the waiting begins until next season. Lucky I have True Blood starting in June!!!

Anyhoo...enough babbling

This is my take on Kazan's sketch 26. I thought I would try a little shabby chic with lace, pearls and softer colours. I even sanded and used crackle paint...what has gotten into me????

I hand cut the 3 flowers out of the patterned paper. I have had this delish Crate paper forever and decided this was the day to use it!!
