Precious & New Friend ;)

Hello again!!

First I have to tell you something! I met up to scrap with Flower! First time we met... Now, I was nervous... but wow!! She is not only a gorgeous person inside, but outside too!! She has the most gorgeous hair I have ever seen!! LOL Kinda red, but subtle... And it's natural!! LOL Anyhow, she is super nice! And SOOOO Talented! I think I watched her work more than I worked... You would think stamping and making a card is a simple 1-2-3 process... NO! Stamping in itself is an art! I would not have the patience to ensure that the stamp turned out as perfect!! And the color of the ink... and then paper, embellies, ribbons... and then there is finding a quote!!
Just remember, you see those cards - next time, leave them a comment!! Learn to appreciate the amount of work and thought put into those masterpieces!! Stamping - card making - is a TRUE art! And a passion... I know I have found a new respect towards these artists... It isn't as simple as it looks... FLOWER - I had a great time, and next time, we will take the time to eat!! LOL

Here is a page on Jessica - again! lol

the right side of the page was cut by hand... not much too say!! Except I just LOVE this picture of my little precious Jessica!! TFL!!

Paper Loft Kit - Home Sweet Home


I received my first kit from the CHALET!!! It is sooo gorgeous! I received tons of paper, ribbons, stickers with quotes, stickers with borders, chipboard alpha, flowers, cardstock… UNREAL!!

You have to join the CHALET!! So much fun!! Besides, if you have been reading my blog, there is a GREAT contest coming up!! $250 prize in supplies!! Let them know Vanilla sent you!! ;)

So here is my first page… I chose this theme because the quotes received referred to “home” and I wanted to have fun with it… Isn’t it true that house is home when it is filled with love – loved ones?? Hope you like this!! Quite challenging to create with someone else’s chosen supplies! Harder than you would think… LOL
Little different style for me – but I had a great time!!

Love this April Kit!! I am already on my 3rd page and 1 altered item… still have more paper to work with!! I have been on a roll… Guess it’s cause I stole my friend Jeanne’s MOJO!! LOL I will be posting more this week…

Everything is from the kit except; beads, Distress Ink (Ranger), Dominoes ("sweet home") Alcohol Inks (Ranger) and MM Rub-ons…

Challenge & I've been tagged!!

At the Chalet, Christy Tomlinson stoped by for a chat!! Great time!! She was kind enough to give us girls a challenge...

Create a layout with the theme
betcha didn't know...
Then I want you to list at least 6 things people don't know about you. It can be more if you like.

layout size: 9x9
layout colors: Pick 3 colors you wouldn't normally scrapbook together or just ones you don't scrapbook often enough.

I've been tagged by Sollie!! ... so I'll give it a try.

1. Find the nearest book...

2. Name the book and the author: The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown (ever hear of it??!?!? lol)

3. Turn to page 123

4. Go to the 5th sentence on the page & copy out the next 3 sentences onto your blog.
(only 2 sentences...) Hedging his bets, he ordered half of his men back to the Louvre perimeter. The other half he sent to guard the only location in Paris where Robert Langdon culd find safe harbor.

5. Tag 3 more people; Naturally I have chosen my fav girls of all time!! Wish I could have picked about 10... ;)

Cutie Transparency

Make my day and leave a comment ;) Soyez gentil et laissez moi un petit mot!! ;)

Hello!!! First, I appologize for not posting much scraping stuff lately... But I recently have found my mojo and have done a whole bunch of stuff!! Here is one of my favs!

Here is a transparency I finished the other day. A little acrylic paint, some lace found at a dollar store, flowers, some rubons and a hand cut title with bling on the "i"... BTW, that's me... not Jess!! lol
To glue the lace I used the UHU Mini Glue dots in a roller I received for free! Really amazing for something transparent... and delicate!

Bonjour!! Voici un page dont j'ai terminiée l'autre jour... De la peinture acrylique, de la dentelle trouvée au magazin 1dollar, des fleurs, des rubons et le titre coupé à la main avec un petit diamant sur le "i"... Et la fillette c'est moi!! Et non Jess!! lol J'ai utilisé la colle UHU (rouleau de mini dots) reçue gratuitement pour coller la dentelle; fantastique pour quelque chose de transparent et délicat!

Bonne journée!! Bises!
Have a great day!! HUGS

Door Hanger & Birthday Card


I wanted to try something new... So I mod podged some pink PP on the base... since it was too glossy, I then dry brushed some white acrylic paint... then added a few embelishments to finish it off... Hope you like it!

Je voulais essayer quelque chose de nouveau... J'ai utilisé du Mod Poge pour mettre un papier avec patron rose, le résultat était trop brillant. J'ai donc utilisé de la peinture blanche acrylique pour le rendre un peu plus mat. Ensuite j'ai ajouté des embelissement et le titre. J'espère qu'il vous plaît!!

Simple last minute card (as usual)! I will soon be known for
the last minute card... lol A stamp & some water paint...

Une carte fait à la dernière minute... Si cela continue je serai continue pour les cartes à dernière minute!! lol
Une étampe et de la peinture à l'eau...

Bonne journée!! Mich
