I am in love

And apparently others are too. I had to make one for a woman at work, and another woman wants one and Mariah's 2 friends at school wanted one. Im having alot of fun with these and the glimmer misting in different colors. Now I want MORE colors of glimmer mists. Mariah help me last night sit down at the dining room table and cut these flowers out, so Im sure that I will be making more this weekend. Arent they cute?

Paper Flowers

I found this AWESOME U TUBE video on Pages in Time on how to make these really cute layered flowers out of maps, old dictionary paper and tissue paper, with glimmer mist.
Here is the link to the video:

And here are the first attempt at the flowers. Word of advise, wait for the tissue paper to dry from the glimmer mist before you try to use it or it tears and you might get frustrated like me and not use tissue paper. Im going to attempt more of these making more layers.

Love this Sketch

I was inspired to work on a sketch for PAGES IN TIME
Here is my take on the sketch:

This is probably one of the first times I have ever taken a sketch and totally followed it, and that is because I love this lay out, where the embellishments go and the title, I loved everything about it, so I really didnt change anything on it.

This is my Grandmother on my moms side, she passed away many many years ago, when I was about 16. I loved my grandma and this is probably one of the best pictures that I have of her. I miss her alot, after all I was her favorite grand child! LOL
These are pretty new papers that I used by Websters Pages, and the line is called Lifes portrait. Embellished with Priam flower and ribbon, BF rub ons, Thickers for the title and the butter fly is also by Prima. The leaves are my new favorite thing, they are by Petaloo and they are called Color me Crazy because you cant paint then, stamp them, chalk them, and my favorite is glimmer mist them which I did to the leaves on this page.
