Steampunk challenge

This is a challenge that I did for PAGES IN TIME

The DT was give a couple of images to use, we had to pick one and create something with it. I decided that I wanted to try to do a canvas. So this is a 12x12 canvas that I painted the back ground, and then used some of the G45 line of Steampunk, some 7 gypsy embellies and rubons, primas and doodling. I had alot of fun creating this. Go check out Pages in Time
for more awesome inspiring ideas!

I even plan on looking for some really yummy cookie recipes, going and buying a bunch of baking stuff and spending my weekend baking this weekend. Our annual WHITE ELEPHANT gift exchange is at my house this year and that will be next weekend. Looking forward to that. We do a very nice brunch with about 10 plus woman and have a very nice day.

Vintage ATC

I have been having fun working on a few ATC's. They are small, simple and fun to do. Here is one that i did that is vintage.
I used alcohol ink (3) colors for the back ground. I then cut the simple lady out of an old mag that I had and adhered it to the card. I traced around the cut out with a brown marker. I added BLING for earrings. I then did some stickles to give the hat a little bling and added some tiny gems to the stickles and let it dry. A little piece of lace at the top, glued 3 small pearls down and added a jolees cute flower to the top. I also ink/chalked the sides of the card.
I also wanted you to see a couple of the pages that are in this magazine that I have to work much fun!

I Heart Jacob

This is a page that I did today for a mini challenge over at Pages in Time

Seems that there are several of us there that LOVE Twilight, so one of the DT members gave us a challenge and this is the page that I came up with. I actually gave this to my daughter Mariah because first of all she loved the books, and the movies....well lets just say that she has watched them over and over and over again, and she HEARTS JACOB!

Mia and Sadie turn a year old!

8-4-10 I can not believe that they are a year old already. I thought it would be cute to try and get some pictures of them in party hats, they thought I was playing a came with them and they kept trying to eat each others hats. I got them a couple of toys....but they decided that they liked the stuffing inside the toys more then the toys themselves.
