Part 2 Lush Layout and Card

Lush is this cool paper line with embellisments and all the bells and whistles from My Minds Eye and comes in some really cool colors but Navy screamed out to me for some photos of my baby Casey who turned 26 this month! Man my kids are growing up! I made a double page layout inspired by one of Mind eyes designers.... Amber Packer, and then I did a card with left over pieces from the layout! And also used some stamps from Scrappers Boutique!

Can't tell I Love me some dimension!

These pics were taken from a great friend  Joyce who used to live in the area and did the photos in her back yard in 2000 and really doesn't feel 11 years ago!  I miss Joyce and her family!
I used some chocolate brown chipboard thickers for the title on this layout, two EK success border punches and a Accu-cut die for one of the elements!
The cool thing is that Ribbon ,Journaling dies, and Rhinestones are all part of the line! I used their felt rick rack and three of the brads and one of the buttons on this! As well as two of the Journal peices!

The cool part about this line is that it is flocked papers and traditional flat papers, so you have dimension just with what papers you choose! So if you are not into pop dotting or layering your elements with height! You have it with just the papers!
Be back soon new stuff coming in this week for me to teach with,
 and can't wait to play with it and tell ya all about it!
 Create something Beautiful and catch ya later this week!

My New Job and some Layouts!

 I so love the Graphic 45 Steam Punk line and Cherie wanted me to do a layout for display at the store! 
 I so loved using Jeff's Grand-dad and Grand-ma as the subjects of it!

I used all paper elements by lifting, punching, and duplicating them on the pages and the tags and frame pages already are so unique to the line.
Used some Crystal Stickles throughout the layout for some blingage also!
Also used some glittered Thickers in a dark teal color for the title!

Some of the roses on the layout were made with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose die using the medium rose !
Also used the hydrangea punches from Martha Stewart line of punches and my edging pieces were a EK Success border punch that looks like doilies! Yummy to play with!Gonna post again cuz blogger not letting me add my next pics from Lush layout so gonna do secondaddition today......Funny huh! NOT
I am really loving my new job at Scrappers Boutique and the other benefit is I get to see all my creative friends playing while I work and that is soooo much fun!
Create something Beautiful and talk in next post!

March already?

        Where is the time going lately! My months are flying by so fast this year! Don't forget time change tomorrow night!
 It is SPRING forward time on the old clocks!
          Did not get to go play at Scrappers Boutique this week due to allergies and headaches so I am really glad to go and work next two nights and hope to see lots of familiar faces at the crops! It is sooo hard to not eat Nita's wonderful cupcakes though! They are sooooo Yummo!

My favorite place to work!

Sonic break

This last weekend needed lots done around the house so G-son #1 came and helped me out trimming trees and putting up hardware in the studio!
Along the two days we of course had breaks with our two fav beverages! Sonic and Diet Coke!

Been playing with this app again on my phone just love to see how it changes the pics! Tyler is growing into a young man these days and so trying not to freak over him taking drivers ed in the future and letting my first G-son grow up!
