HEHE well it's not that bad. We had rain this weekend. So we were all held up in the house. Bouncing kids, bored husband and crafty mom. lol Great weekend overall. Lance is working out of town this week. It's been awhile so the kids will have some adjusting to do, not having daddy putting them to bed. :( Karls is excited because that means she gets to sleep with mom.
Well with March already here means new challenges and contests. First over on the Favorite Things Challenge blog we would like to see your Favorite friend. Here is my take on the challenge. This my BFF Tracie and I. I used some of Prima's new flowers and altered them with glimmer mists. On the large roses I started with Yellow Daisy then sprayed them with terra cotta and dipped the edges into Red velvet. The other colors used on this project were Sunflower, Burnt Red, and Walnut Gold. I stamped the butterflies using a Martha Stewart stamp set. I colored them in with Copic markers. The ribbon is from May Arts which you can find at Scrapgal.com The PP is Prima and boBunny The cardboard background is Prima as well.
This month at ScrapGal our Manufacture of the month is Cosmo Cricket. Head over to our Monthly Contests forum So on both of my ScrapGal LOs this month high featured Cosmos new Lines. Produce a Lo or challenge for a chance to win a prize pack of new Cosmo Cricket goodies. Other lines used were from American Crafts new lines.
The flowers are made from a pair of jeans I had bought that were about 10 inches too long lol. I will have a tutorial on how to make these flowers coming soon to www.thegalblog.com The ultra-suede leaves I stitched down the center. You can find these at the ScrapGal shop
Ok isn't this little green frame nifty? I found a few of these at Michael's for $1 WOOT. This is a LO about a cabinet sewing machine I was given that use to be my grandmother's. The top is so cool and retro. I feel so honored to now own it.
Have a wonderful week all. SMILE, CREATE, and don't take LIFE too seriously.
