Just wonderful layout

Here is another quick layout I put together tonight while watching tv! My new goal is to make at least two layouts a week - so far so good!! I used mixed media texture on this layout and made all the easy layers square and simple!!  This is my dad and niece Sara walking in the museum together.  The paper is Basic Grey and miscellaneous scraps - the best part of Scrapbooking everything can be used - even the scraps!!

Such bliss.,,,

While waiting for Intelligence to come on tv tonight I did a one page layered layout.  This is Basic Grey paper, mixed media stencil and texture paste, strips of paper a tag with Tattered Angels sprays and textured paste. I also stamped the Dusty Attic chipboard blue and the edges as I wanted to use blue from my nieces outfit in the picture. The flower is Petaloo and the tag 3D letters are from K&Company.

Croppers Delight NYC - My Favorite Things Crop Event 2014

This was my first time going to this event.  I had a blast with the people I sat with.  I will definitely be registering for next years event.  Here are some of the pictures of the layouts that I was able to do this weekend.  This is one image of most of the favorite things that were handed out.  I also have a T-Shirt, water bottle and another little scrap tote.


So I've been fascinated with tags lately and of course I didn't have my tag template with me so I improvised!! I have the Tim Holtz Collection Bubbles and I used it for making my tags.  It was rather large but so worth it - they turned out fabulous!

Tag 1: This started out simple, but then when I kept adding new trinkets I just kept going! On this tag I used the following:  Tattered Angels spray on the cheese cloth, Butterbee Trinket, ribbon, Kaisercraft Key to my heart collection paper Christmatic and Devine, Prima flowers, butterfly and bird.  I also added some burlap.

Tag 2:  I used Basic Grey True Love - Simple Elegance paper, Butterbee Trinket, ribbon, Prima Flowers.

 Tag 3:  Prima flowers, Hero Arts old writing stamp, chicken wire, glass mosaic rocks, lace

Tag 4:  this tag has black embossing powder around the edges, prima flowers, chicken wire, mesh sticker beneath the wire, ButterBee Trinket flower,  Tattered Angels mist spray, red, green, purple and blue, chicken wire and mesh sticker under it, modeling paste and I mixed in black/grey acrylic paint.

Layout 1: Kaisercraft Key to my heart collection - charistmatic and Devine, Prima Flowers and shabby chic frame, ButterBee Scraps trinket, modeling paste and chipboard that I textured with pink paint.

My project for my God Daughter Olivia

This is a picture frame I'm transforming into a beautiful present for my God daughter Olivia's 7th birthday this month.  I purchased it at Michael's with my 50% off coupon and then started to get to work.  I am just in love with texturing everything these days - it's so darn easy to do - and you can do just about everything. I used purple acrylic paint and mixed sand with it and put it all around the edges of the frame, then I added some glitter - what girl wouldn't want some glitter?  I then added the rhinestones to the sections for more bling.  I used DCWV Nanna's kids for the background paper, Prima Flowers Fleurs de prima, Anna Marie, Pink Paiselee hope chest and Shabby chic treasures angels.
