Sister Kelly

Well, this is the last lo from the October kit. The cb and vine are from past kits. This is my dh with his sister on our wedding day. She just got married on 10-11-12. How cool is that?!

Splatter and Drip Contest

Here are two entries for the Swirly Girls Challenge called Splatter and Drip. The idea is to splatter and/or drip your mists, paints, etc. to make a fun lo.
So, I used the last of my October kit to create the flowers on these two lo's and then just splatted GM over the backgrounds.

My sweet little boy out in our meditation garden. Used gesso and paints along with a stencil for the birds on a branch. Flowers created using TH Tattered Florals die and McGill punches for the centers. Butterfly cb piece was inked with Teal Damask from Ingvild Bolme.
Roger and me with my parents on our wedding day. I used all of the remaining Artisan Elements frames to help create the background for this one. Flowers made with same dies as above. The fairy is from Dusty Attic. I posted previously on deconstructing cb to make the fairy 3D. tfl!

Another lift of an amazing lo created by a Swirlydoos' DT Member. This is a lift of the Round Robin entry by Angela. I loved her curled layers of paper so I had to lift it (with her permission, of course).
My dd and Roger's dd on our wedding day. tfl!

So glad you are mine

This one is for the monthly sketch challenge at Swirlydoos.


I received the latest Swirlydoos kit earlier this week and have been playing, again.
Here's a lift of Lisa's Anatomy of a Layout for this month. Thank you, Lisa, for the inspiration.

Yesterday Today and Tomorrow

My new kit just arrived and I had to break into it immediately! The colors in this kit are amazing!
The cb piece was covered with black embossing powder and then bronze embossing powder. The flowers and leaves are from a past kit and my stash. tfl!


Since I used the last of Inspiration to make the tag for this lo I started using the previous month's kit, Vintage Traditions,  for this lo. The tag is a lift of Paulien's beautiful tag, again.
The flowers are from various kits as well as the cb heart which was covered in TH crackle paint. Some Smooch was spritzed on the background and the Prima chickenwire was stamped to create some visual interest. Bling and leaves from my stash. tfl!


Here's another lo using the last of Inspiration.  The tag used on the lo is a lift of Paulien's, one of the talented Swirlydoos designers. This is a picture of my dn after the wedding. She really wanted to catch the bouquet and we ended up forgetting to toss it! So, I gave her the bouquet to take home with her the next day.

Round Robin for September--and, it's a winner!

Well, I totally forgot that I signed up for the RR Challenge at Swirlydoos. Thank goodness I was posting for the last week so that I didn't put someone else behind for their week. Kim hosted the challenge this month. She challenged us to use stuff from our oldest Swirlydoos  kit and scrap an old friend. I found a lot of papers from my April 2009 kit and scrapped Roger since he has been my BFF since 1998.
Thank you for voting this lo as the winner of the Round Robin Challenge for September!
