Hello!  It's another new month: MAY @ CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS which means another monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 in their fantastic products!  The challenge is to be inspired by the following photo and the "twist" is to use a Vintage graphic.  Vintage is NOT my favorite, however, I did a set of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) and I just LOVE the way they turned out-so GIVE IT A TRY! We'd love to have you!

(I actually used this inspiration graphic!)

MY PROJECT:
Creative Embellishments Products Used:

Antique Gold and added a stenciled brick pattern to the right of each ATC

which I also dabbed with a bit of white ink

Jasmine's Sweet 16!

Hello!  My daughter in law posted the cutest photo the other day of my grandsons, Brian & Talan with their cat, Jasmine.  It was Jasmine's "Sweet 16"!  I had to "scrap it" right away! So I combined a few challenges:  Sketch 1 of the monthly sketch challenge, Pet Challenge & Journaling Challenge @ scrapbook.com.  In addition I am entering this page in the monthly challenge at (click & go)-> CanvasCorpBrands ( #ccbchallenge) ; you have to use woodgrain of some kind as well as one CanvasCorpBrand product.  I used a very old but LOVED product from 7Gypsies-the journaling card (Happiness Card); I have a whole variety and stack of these cards that I have used as well as hoarded! LOL!-can you relate?

Me & Wee Forest Folk....

Hello! Once in awhile I do a page of "ME!" but usually I am too busy having fun with grandsons pages!  Anyway, I collect Wee Forest Folk -the mini mice; I love the ones with hearts!  Several years back I went to Boston to the house where they are created by the Peterson Family-that was a thrill!  I thought I'd enter this page in the challenge at: Challenge Yourself.  They had a bingo board of elements and I chose:  Photo of me (in the middle), die cut-used a circle die to cut out the Wee Forest Folk Logo area and stickers: Enchanted is a sticker that I popped up.
