Finally....a Scrapbook Page!!!

I took this photo of Kyle while playing around with my camera this summer. I really liked how it came out, close, cropped, and captured the softer side of him. Usually he is running around the house like a maniac and talks your ear off! I used my Cuttlebug star die cuts on various Daisy D papers. I then added buttons, floss, micro beads, and stamped various stars with my stamp set from Tin Creations. My journaling states a few things that I love about my ten year old son. 1. You are true to yourself. 2. You are sensitive by nature 3. You are imaginative and creative 4. You have a passion for history 5. You have a quick wit 6. You are MINE!

I am excited for Saturday to be hubby is taking me somewhere for my birthday! It is a surprise and he isn't telling! I will let ya know where we went....hopefully it is not the Sybaris ( for those of you who aren't is a "themed" hotel...if ya catch my drift! That would DEFINITELY be a gift for HIM...not so much for me!) Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Crafty Secrets!

I just adore the Crafty Secrets stamps! They are such high quality acrylic stamps! I bought this fairy set over the summer and hadn't used this particular image yet. I embossed it in black and added glitter to it while it was still warm. The paper is Basic Grey's Periphery line. I just got my Spellbinders order the embossed rectangles behind the image were created with it! Gotta love that it embosses AND die cuts! I added some pretty Felt Primas and ric rac.
Have a great day!!!

Inque Boutique

I was lucky enough to win this cute stamp set from Inque Boutique! I colored the bird in with my Copics and added some sparkle to his tail using my black Spica marker. The paper is by Creative Imaginations and SU! The photo corner is felt that I sewed on. I added some buttons tied with floss. The vellum sentiment was by Making Memories and is fairly old. Thanks for looking....quick post tonight....have to go pick up the kids from CCD!

Halloween Bees!

I love these Stampendous bees! I think they are so cute! So going with the Halloween theme....decided to make them festive for the holiday. I used the Martha Stewart paper and cut the bodies out. I added a thin line of black glitter around the bodies. I used my Copics to color their faces and wings. The Happy Halloween sentiment is by Autumn Leaves. The cute buttons are from Making Memories.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I did lots and lots of Fall cleaning. Taking down curtains, washing glasses in the china cabinet....just stuff that gets neglected all summer long! It feels good when the house is clean! Not that it will last very long!
