August DT Reveal at APOS!!!

I received my dt kit and was super excited to see crate paper pp ,rubons and basic grey chipboard letters!!!! I had a "blast"playing with this kit! I hope you love What i came up with!!!! please venture over to APOS!and check out the awesome LO's and things the other ladies came up with!!!!

Some new LO's to share....

This was a fun LO i did rather quickly and i love the way it turned out...the whimsey button,the handmade flower it sits on,the clear swirl decorated with dimensional paint and stickles and of course my beading made this so much fun to do!!!!

This LO i did for the CS grey call.Apparently they weren't as enthused with it as i was!!! They didn't pick it up!!!!

I Started the birthday LO by stitching the clown back in march at a crop in Greenhill lake!!!!I finally got around to finishing it and I must say i absolutely love it!!!!

inspiration challenge at APOS!

ok ladies challenge to you this week is to find a beautiful outdoor pic to inspire you but there is a catch ...don't scrap that pic!!! it is for inspiration only!!!! i chose a lovely pic of fall leaves to inspire me . you could choose a pic of the horizon for a linear LO or even architecture to inspire you !!!!!

Have you ever had a time when your scrappy mojo just appeared and you didn't want to stop? I must admit that the last few weeks I have been a scrappy machine!!! The best part of it all is i am loving each and every LO that is getting done !! What a rarity!!! Most times i have a love /hate relationship with my scrapping .Today i took the time to design 2 sketches ..I have never even attempted to do that before ..usually I just scrap or look at someone else's sketches for inspiration!!!!
I will share a new challenge on tuesday with one of my new LO's!!!!

sketch challenge on the Page Maps blog

Yesterday I decided to do a LO and thought about the wonderful sketch I had seen earlier on the page maps blog .It called for a summer theme so I chose to do a pic from my niece's wedding.It took place last August 23rd and I am just getting around to scrapping a few pages .I absolutely love how this turned out!!!!!I spent about 8 hours stitching and beading this one.

Inspiration Challenge!!

Today was my day to issue an inspiration challenge to the girls at APOS!I chose to have them use a memory as an inspiration.There are lots of moments that get missed because we don't have our cameras handy or in my case a mishap at the store where a clerk erased my card and sold me a blank cd!!!!All i was left with was the memory and no pics !!I have never cross stitched on a LO before .I am not a cross stitcher and had to borrow a few books from a co worker but i do love the way it turned out !! I will definately do it more often!!! Be sure to check out jerusha's and valerie's challenges issued today !!!!

My journalling,gary and i set out for bangor on october 6 we were driving down the airline i saw the strangest large birds to which i exclaimed ..what the heck are they? mom thought that was funny.i am such a city chick..i had never seen a wild turkey before!!! let alone a batch of them on the side of the road.gary turned the car around so i could get pics.i chased them through someone's yard and got a few pics.i got them put on cd at shoppers but the clerk sold me a blank cd and wiped out my camera card so all i am left with is the memory of seeing wild turkeys on the side of the road!!!!


ok finty last try !! me at .i will draw another name friday if i get no reply!!!!!
