LRW Fall


Two more sleeps till my scrappy weekend!

This week's challenge was a fall theme..awesome-fall is my FAV season!

So, I went waaaay out of the box on this one.

I used a crafters workshop template with some embossing creme to make the background paper.

I gotta tell ya- this stuff is seriously cool-

you just trowel it on and heat it with your heat gun

Then I misted with a few different colours, sewed up a tag and cut a few leaves with my slice.

here's a bit of a closer look

I wanted to join in the fun with the
texture to perfection challenge at Moxie Fab world

Guesting with Two Friends

Hey there!!

I hung up my DT hat with Two Scrapbook Friends about a year ago, I decided I needed a break for a while.

the "friends" contacted me and asked if I wanted to Guest this month..I said HELLS YES

I got Jillibean sweet and sour soup to play with..

( I dont know what it is about the name but I always want to say hot and bothered)

I knew this line would rock with the MFT stamps and dies

so here's a card I did using jillibean and MFT


and an altered notebook


and a couple layouts


this whole guest thing was awesome because I actually got to scrapbook...FUN!!

Thanks for peekin'

bitty birdcage

yesterday was a crappy day weather-wise, Lola and I set ourselves to craft some stuff.

She wanted to do something with the birdcages that I got at Michaels like a year+ ago.

This was actually green but all faded from the sun..

I gave it a quick coat with ivory krylon

While the paint was drying- Lola picked a birdie shape from Cricut and we assembled it. I added some stickles because my girl loooves her some glitter.

Its now hanging in her window

Thanks for peekin'
