I am pleased to share this video with you!  I was able to collaborate with a bunch of other artists (not just paper crafters either) showing projects inspired by the new live action Beauty and the Beast.  Come check out my twisted take and check out what all the other talented people made!

Valentine's Mini Pizza Box

My newest creation - figured this one was easier to show via video than photos.  Hope you enjoy!

Sleepy Time

When I saw the sketch over at Scrap Our Stash I knew exactly what photos I wanted to use. They also for the new year had a challenge of using products in the word goals..that one wasn't so easy.  

G - Girl Paper by Bella Blvd
O - Orchid color embellishments (I checked the color of orchids to be sure this complied.
A - Acrylic Paint (yellow)
L - Liquitex basics texture paste
S - Stickers and a stencil

The photos were printed at home with my Epson picturemate Christmas present ever! Watch for a process video coming up on my youtube channel soon.

Back today for layout I created for a dual purpose....check my youtube in a few days for the second.  The main reason I create this page was the awesome sketch by Laura Whitaker over at Stuck Sketches.  It was perfect for using up the bits an pieces I had left in my December 2016 My Creative Scrapbook kit. I actually only have one full piece of paper left from the kit, and I've done five layouts and two projects so far.  Hope it inspires you to get your scraps out!

Tiny Toes

Hi everyone and welcome to the last Scrapping Our Stash blog hop for the year.  I'm your last stop, but you should have arrived here from Majken's blog.
I'm the only one who didn't do Christmas for the hop :-)  I wanted to get the papers in this layout used  up!  It's a very old Scrapbook Generation kit that I couldn't use the way they intended so I challenged myself to use it up.I used it, but still mange to have most of it
The background and title were cut from my cameo and designed by my friend Stacia.  I them took my cheap watercolor set from Michael's and colored the hearts a pale pink.  The papers from the background and heart fillings are Pink Paislee Bella Rouge. Oh, and the washi tape...hate it on the photo above, but like it in real life...strange!
Thanks for hoping with us today...and all year long!  Can't wait to see what January brings for our hop community.

It's A Girl

I love being on vacation!  I haven't gotten this much done in awhile, and even then it's not much!  This is another photo taken during our daughters newborn shoot.  She was so very good.
This is a sketch from Creative Scrappers and a mood board from Scrap the Girls. The mood board had different shades of pink as well as a gold glitter.  I used the shades of pink and the rest of the mood board reminded me of a celebration, and what's a better reason to celebrate than a newborn baby!
Paper is the It's A Girl collection from Carta Bella.  I will say I had a really hard time matching the pinks on this one to anything in my stash.  
Well....I better run - the Christmas cookie timer is calling my name.  Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Jolly Old Nick

Sunday must be a good day for me a I'm here with another layout to share with you.  This one, just like my last, was inspired by the sketch at My Creative Sketches.  I am also entering it into the anything goes challenge at Lasting Memories.
I used the My Creative Scrapbook kit from December 2015.  Yes - I still have kits that are a year old...even older if I'm honest.
The photo is from breakfast with Santa from this year.  It was a fundraiser for M's school and he wanted to attend so badly, but I was working.  My awesome parents stepped in and took the kids.  We've never been big on the Santa thing, but now that he attends school with kids who's rubbed off.  I guess there are worse things that could rub off right!?
Well if I don't talk to you again this week...Have a Merry Christmas!
