First ever TP mini album

Good evening everyone!  I just wanted to share what I worked on Sunday evening!  I created my first ever TP mini album!  Never did I think it would turn out so beautiful and be so much fun!  I didn't embellish too much because I wanted as much space as possible for pictures and journaling.  This mini was a big hit at the office!  I have many more to make!  LOVE THEM! If you haven't tried one, you really should.  Such fun!  ENJOY!

Thanks for stoppin' in!

God bless you all and your families!

YAY!  Today is my birthday! But I celebrated it over the weekend with my sis and her family and I had the best birthday weekend ever!  Spent entire weekend SHOPPING and SCRAPBOOKING!!  I will post some picks of all my goodies later on this evening when I get home from work!  SO much stuff out there I wanted, so many things on my wish list!  I knocked out a few items, but my list is still SOOOOOO long!

I also have a mini, some layouts, and other projects I have been working on that I will share soon!

Well, back to work!  Talk to you all soon!

God bless you all and your families!

More prizes given by
& LSH Members!

Please make sure to follow each blog and comment on each post and subscribe to each youtube channel and comment on youtube video's for your chance to win some amazing prizes.

I struggled with what I wanted to do for my project to show love and family.  So many things I wanted to do, but just couldn't decide what would be the best!  Well, as some of you may know, I LOVE MY CHILDREN!  :o)  So, I wanted to make something that showcased my family. Additionally, I wanted to try crafting something NEW, something I have NEVER done.  ALTERED CANVAS!!

It was a lot of fun to make, but extremely stressful for me because I kept wanting to add more and more to it, kept thinking I didn't have enough!  Had a little inspiration from my LSH friend (thanks Geordie)!  I am pleased with how it turned out.  Think I might still need a little practice with canvas.  What do ya think?

 Thank you to our sponsors for offering such great prizes for our followers!

Lost and Found Mini

I want to thank Kathy Orta for sharing her talents with her fellow crafters!  I can watch her videos all day, every day!  Here are pictures of the paper bag mini I worked on last week from watching her video at  http://www.youtube.com/user/kathyorta  using Tim Holtz paper Lost and Found. It is a 10 video series! Go check it out and follow this very talented lady! LOVED IT!

Let me just say, I LOVE THIS PAPER!!  I also LOVE how this mini turned out!  Looks great on the bar in my kitchen!  What do you think?

Not too much bling on the front, but I loved using the glossy accents on the letters and didn't want to hide them!

so many pages and pockets for photo mats and tags!

My very first time using the duct tape for binding! Thank you Kathy Orta!! This is black duct tape and then I painted it with Folk Art Metallic Antique Copper acrylic paint.  Rub a bit off to make it look like old book binding.

The book also has several mini books within it!

54 photo mat/tags from within this mini!  And it could hold several more!
I hope you all are having a crafty weekend!  I am working on catching up on some layouts today!  Hoping to make a video for my youtube channel soon!  I am still nervous about that one!  Until then, God bless you all and your families!

LSH and TC challenges tonight!

I always have so much fun hanging out with the ladies on LSH!  Even if I am just there for a bit of visiting and looking at everyone's work!  It is truly amazing how kind and friendly everyone is across the miles!  Love you Cindy, Geordie, Becca, and Laura! 

Here are the pages I created tonight.  First one is my interpretation of Sketch#25 found at 52 Sketches!

The second layout is Sketch #12! 

Loved making these layouts!  Loved the company!  Can't wait to do it again!!  See you soon!

God bless you all and your families!

Monogram Tape!

Good morning everyone!  I hope you all are getting to enjoy a cup of coffee with me this morning!  I am just stopping in to say hello as I blog hop this morning!  So many crafters online with beautiful ideas, contests, and tutorials.  I am still learning, trying to figure out what project I want to post next, and working on getting my nerve up to make a video!!!  It is coming soon, please hang in there with me.  I am waiting on getting moved into a room instead of my little craft area in the kitchen. With 6, yes that is SIX, people in the house plus all the in and out of friends, there is NO WAY I can do this from my current "scrap area".  Anyway....

I have been seeing everyone with their packaging tape that has monogram on it!!!  I have looked at Michael's here, and even emptied the entire bin!  My kids were sooooo embarrassed!  I CANNOT FIND AN M!  If anyone knows where I can find an M pleeeeeaaaasssseee give me a shout out! I so have to have some!

Okay, I am off to hop and create!  I will be back later with pictures of my creations for the day!

God bless you all and your families!
