Canvas with some fun new things I got for my birthday

So, I got some fun new Hazel & Ruby letter stencils (Dear Ruby) from my friend Lural for my birthday!!! So, when I saw the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Time to Grow/Botanical, I decided to try out modeling paste with a flower stencil along with the letters. I originally painted it with a light green chalk paint, and I felt it was hard to see the letters, so I went over the canvas with some gorgeous gelatos from Faber Castell. I also paperpieced/colored a cool Unity girl that I bought recently.  I'm sure I will do a better job next time, but I still kind of like the canvas!

Hope you are having a great Memorial Day weekend! Hug a veteran!! Here's a big virtual one going out to my little brother who spent 20 years in the Navy!!!!

Happy 20th Birthday Mitchell!

I can't believe Mitchell turned 20 this April...  Anyway, I made this for the Simon Says Die Crazy challenge.  And, I even dug out my old Sizzix letters/numbers for this one.  The hearts and love are from American Crafts! And the matting is from a set of Spellbinders.

Thanks for looking!

Life is Better When YOU are Laughing--My Darling Niece Julie!

I am entering it into Simon Says Stamp blog anything-goes Wednesday challenge--my fourth for the challenge (I usually can't get it together enough for that many entries--maybe it will finally be my lucky week). A few years ago while we were celebrating Thanksgiving with my family, several of us decided to play disc golf. It was fun seeing Julie get the giggles as she played for the first time (I think). I thought all of her fun poses and faces would make a great layout! I am totally into the latest craze of Polaroid frames! And, I was lucky enough to win the Jillibean collection a while back. The flowers are CTMH; the button, October Afternoon; the twine,The Twinery; the jewels, Pebbles. The green frame on the left was made with an American Crafts die that I also won!!!

Thanks for looking!

St. Louis Cardinals - 2012

I am entering it into Simon Says Stamp blog anything-goes Wednesday challenge, and I am also entering it my friend Stacy's challenge to use black! I found the black sheet of paper on my table and the arrow on the floor and decided to go back and FINALLY scrapbook our trip to see the St. Louis Cardinals around Steve's birthday in 2012! So, thanks for the challenge Stacy. You helped me cleanup my scrap room a bit!
