This picture of the evening sky screamed scrap me for this layout..Loved the stars barely shown in this moonscap photograph.
The stars are various die cuts, the papers and embellishments from an old Cocoa Daisy Monthly Kit. Trying to use up old stock and it has been so much fun to dig into matched papers and embellishments and create current layouts...brings so much happiness. Oh yeah the pictures were taken with my Canon Power Shot SX700 HS on the Creative mode which takes multiple images in various settings. The pictures were printed out using my Canon Selphy. Love, love, love the wifi that both the camera and the printer have enabling to use these products at events such as this retreat.
Well it is April Fools Day and have you played the Google Maps Pac-Man game??
I have been busy creating a layout for this awesome layout available from Let's Scrap
Here is the sketch
with so many elements throughout the page I decided to choose scrap my daughter's College Graduation photo shoot. I had so much fun with this sketch. Here are the results
The heart is a die from Simon Says Stamp, the embellishment from Memory Box, the word dies were borrowed from my scrap buddy so not sure of the manufacturer and I am loving those rhinestones from Prima.
Be sure and checkout the Facebook and Blog for Let's Scrap and play along with us.
Just a quick post to share the card I am dropping in the mail tomorrow for my hubby.
Used frisket to outline the heart, distress markers as watercolor "paints" and enable the resist, white embossing powder to bring forward the word Love using a stamp from Impress.
Fun and quick to create once the frisket dried.
If you haven't used frisket, it is the consistency of rubber cement and used to mask off the areas not wanting the paint. For this card I only applied the frisket to the outside diameter of the heart, not the whole card because I was able to keep the paint within the lines, just didn't want it to bleed through on the rest of the card.
Can you believe it is February of 2015....what happened to 2014?
A brief catch up with me, I have relocated to the Seattle for a few years.
The kids have graduated college and I guess you can say I graduated to another state.
Living away from Hubby, kids, dogs and the sun is very different.
Buying a home to live in by myself is ALOT different, exciting, different, adventurous, different....
I have now been here for 7 months with over two months time I have been able to be in Cali with family and friends. In August for my sweet mother-in-laws funeral, then again in November for my best friend's. Saddened occasions occurred last year, events that I am still learning how to cope with.
I have been shown how precious life and love is and that no one can ever take it for granted.
I am attempting to accomplish many things this year...
1) Learn the things I have taken for granted that hubby will always do...cooking and house painting
2) Learn to draw faces...something my mother can do with her eyes closed
3) Meet new people...something that being in a family unit always came easy
4) Reach out and VOLUNTEER my time and talents...possibly a way to accomplish #3
5) Become a better listener
So follow me as I document my accomplishments this year and venture out into the brave new world without my best friend by my side but rather watching and directing my every move from Heaven.
