I am a 34 year mom of three and a wife for 13 years. I am also in the Navy, for lets see... 15 years now. I have been scrapping for a long time now, at least since 1998, but did not know nearly as much of what I know now. Anyway, I have such a huge passion for scrapping and just wanted to share my work with whoever is willing to look, lol!
I am currently running a blog with my friend Leslie at If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It! So come on over, check it out!
Not really much to say tonight, trying to get outta here so I can go shoot pool with my husband, and whip his ____! LOL. So I will just show a LO that had me in a funk for some time, but finally got it together. I was also going to show another project I made, but just remembered I can't, lol, I am oing to use it for our blog, so you will have to wait just a bit. Good Night Enjoy~
So Sunday my husband gets this great idea to go to the zoo, in 93 degree weather! But, the kids had a great time, so it was all good. I took like a million pictures as usual and my Nya as always posed. I not quite sure why, but I have to bribe my son to let me get photos of him (or sneak them). Morgan will usually let me take them if he sees his sister is getting all of the attention. See what I mean? Thats Morgan for you though.
I think she wanted to take these chairs home!
Now tell me why Nya had to sit in both chairs, and she did not want to get out of them either! Now here's one more! We were waiting for the little 2.00 a ride train. Now let me tell you, this train is supposed to take you around the zoo, and show you the animals that in in the outskirt of it. Yeah, tell me why, the trip consisited of half animals, and half construction of the animals habitats that would be there next year! You get what you pay for, right? I have been a little dissapointed with my pics lately, ever since my lens (70mm-300mm) broke. I hoped to get it fixed within the next week or two so I can try to get back on my game, lol!
Tell me why it is 4:36am and I am not in the bed! As tired as I am too, lol, but I guess I needed to get this post on, or it would be another two weeks before I updated. I still have a lot of projects to get done and it seems as if I am running out of time. But make sure to check back, because I am going try to make it point, (keyword is try) to update before the weekend is out.
So I had a color challenge to do, and the colors were pale blue and cream (Beautiful combo by the way) this is what I came up with. It was pretty simple, and I actually wish I had spent more time on it. I used a bit of crackle paint(which I am in love with) around the edges of the title and the journal box. I also used it on the arrow. The sparrow like bird is from inkadinkadoo (of course). Can't quite remember, but I think that border is from Prima, I bought it last minute and used it right away. For those that are new to following me, that is my baby girl Nya, and she is such a poser!
Next I have the "Pink & Brown" not every ones favorite combo, but it is absolutely one of mine! I actually used a technique I have never tried before, I mixed my green glimmer mist with my pink(tattered rose) crackle paint then heat dried until it starting bubbling a bit, to give it an even aged look. I used this on the cute swirly like grunge board. Well ladies on that note, I can't take it anymore, I am beat! Night, or shall I say good morning?
So, I am getting a little better with posting, I think. I will actually post this weekend on some projects I have working on. I'm a busy girl, so it's hard. So on to some good stuff. I received an awesome blog award from my friend Tracey!!! Therefore, I would love to pass this on to 10 more fabulous blogs, that I truly love. There are a few that I wil keep of, because they have been nominated already, you uys know who you are! Mwah!!
There are some rules to this one:
1. The winner may put the logo onto their blog.
2. Put a link to the person who sent you the award.
Now without feeling to weird for leaving blog awards for complete strangers because their blogs are my favorites, I am going to have to put these gals down anyway, because they are still my Fav, even though they have already been nominated!
Oh Wow! Has it realy been two weeks since my last update? Well, shame on me! I have actually got quite a bit done though. So I am going to show you a couple of LO's and Cards I have been working on, hope you enjoy!
Okay, so I had so much fun with LO, it was a sketch challenge from Kristy on our blog, and a fun sketch I do say! This I believe has got to be my most Fav LO to date. You know, I cannot find that minnie mouse purse to save my life? Hmmm...
This a JoyLuck Card I made, you can find the directions on our blog "iftheshoefitsscrapit". But Tracey hosted this challenge, and a challenge it was! The sentiment I have stamped is so true! But I had fun with it. I used some of Tim Holtz's Products. Crackle Paint, mixed with Glimmer Mist.
This next card challenge was hosted by Lesley! We had to take this image and use it in a card, so this was what I came up with. I so love these stamps, Inkadinka doo!
Okay last but not certainly not least, this challenge is from our Sponsor "Scrap-a-doodledoo" the paper was too darn sweet. I really thought this was a cute and innocent kit to play with. I do however think I could of done a lot better with this.
