The gift

I made this digital for my friend Sally. It's of her kids wedding. I got to do elegant, I guess that's my style because I absolutely LOVE IT! It was quite challenging because I tried to make the ribbon weave thru my paper pieces. I figured it out, it's probably not the right way but it worked.

Sketch & Lasting Memories challenge #35

HI, me again with another digital!  My brother looks like (one wrong move and I'M GONE!)  and I look like "hurry up and take the pic and then give me what you promised!"
I found this paper in my stash and it is almost the same as my digital! I added some blingy flowers to the LO.

A few digitals.


 These are a few digitals!
I'm like Karen (addicted). Love it! Finally something that helps me create LO's and cards a little faster. This is my friend and her daughters in Japan!
I red-lined my digital LO, after I laminated it, to some paper I got from Sam's. Added some rub-ons from Hobby Lobby, a puffy sticker and some bling and WHA-LA.

This one I used a sketch from Sketches in Thyme, I saw when I was looking at her gorgeous LO and I really liked the sketch. I had some digi's that were printed on vellum from Stef at Glitterbabe's. I also red-lined taped it to paper from Sam's.
 I couldn't decide what card to give my friend for Easter (I think both are good!)
I down-loaded the pics from free Easter pictures on the web. Then made easel cards and redlined taped the images on the card. I put a stopper with pop dots, bling, and flowers that I had.                                          
 Got this picture from my
sister's FB page and I thought it was cute! My sister and my Grandmother must of been on the same wave link because I thought their favorite color was blue and turquoise and NOW IT'S PURPLE!
I taped this on some paper from Lone Star in Conroe and added some rub-ons.

Lasting Memories challenge #35.

This digital LO is a pic of a neighbor's cat, that thinks he's lending a helping hand (paw!) I opened the garage door and he marched right in like he owned the place!
I chose a black and white LO because of his color.
I added some extra bling and cut a couple of tags out with my Cuttlebug. I did redline tape it to some black and white designer paper I got from Hobby Lobby.I also did a little journaling with Word.

It's all about Easter at Lasting Memories.

When I got my cast off last year, I was delighted. I wasn't able to do any crafts but I could do some haircuts and drive, although the cops wouldn't have liked it. Hence, (the one armed bandit.) (I COULD drive better than some with one arm!
I got these eggs at Michaels and decorated them with quilling. I mounted them on a block of wood.  I also got a glitter egg at Michaels and made a 3-D dragon for my friend for Easter cuz she collects dragons.  I made the motorcycle for my brother in law. Of course the
Easter eggs needed some bling!

Scrapbookers Anonymous in April.


Over at scrapbookers Anonymous we were asked to use a minimum of 23 eyelets. I used 28. I'm quite pleased with this LO! I made this for my friends of their Grand-daughter. Thanks Gina and Haelee and Phil.
I used some textured card stock and did my journaling with Word. I printed the motorcycle on from SU and colored it yellow and then laminated it. I cut out a label with my cuttlebug. I used my word window and oval punch from SU. Also I used the Paper Lace cartridge from the cricut (which is COOL!) I did use some rub-ons and I put just one bling jewel on the bow I made.

Easter Lasting Memories challenge #34


There was always someone around with a camera. This Easter photo was my brother and I in 1961. Aren't we cute?
I used my digital studio from SU (amazing!) I also added some rub-ons around my LO. I made the heart in my digital program and then cut it out and applied it using pop dots from Michaels.
My client told me I like all that swirly, girly stuff. I DO!!!

Journaling Lasting Memories #33

I wanted to make this 2 page spread and journaling before I forgot some of the things that Grandmother said. Oh, there was alot more but all the journaling didn't fit.
Of course I used my digital program. I'm having to glue my 8.5x11 to 12x12 scrapbook paper. My printer doesn't print that wide. The black and white paper, I got from Hobby Lobby and the black lace paper which I only had one of, I got from a friend. I had to cut in half.

Lasting Memories challenge #33

This week at Lasting Memories we did a journaling page which usually I hate to do but with SU digital program it is pretty easy and word is pretty easy also but I used my digital studio.
In no way do I condone killing birds but this story is pretty hilarious!
I added some rub-ons and some bling. I laminated the pictures and glued them down with red-line tape on textured cardstock and DL the book cover from the web.

I know, I'm really into this digital stuff. I like it!

Spring, Lasting Memories challenge #32

 I made this two page spread of last years spring bloom at my house (It's always beautiful but this year NOT SO MUCH! We had a hard freeze that El Paso is not prepared for! The palm tree's, all look pretty SAD! (amongst other things) My greenhouse used to be a jungle but it echoes now. Looks like EVERYTHING froze but I'm still hopeful!
I hadn't scrapped these yet. GOOD THING.
My neighbor's wisteria inter-mingled with my banks rose.
I used my digital SU program
and added some rub-ons and
flowers and bling.
