Keep it Together During the Christmas Season

Had a little fun with this Design Team project for Scraps of Color E:Spire.  I've got a lot on my plate.  It's the Holiday Season and Christmas is just around the corner.  With only so many hours in the day and deadlines to meet I had to get a system to stay on track.  I made these refrigerator magnets to keep in view.  They are Robert Jackson's digital images.

Keep it Together This Christmas Holiday Season.  Plan Ahead. 
No Need to Be Stressed

Mema's Crafts Celebrate the Holidays

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, but it continues on to Christmas.  Hope you join us at Mema's Crafts as we Celebrate the Holidays.  When you make your projects and cards for the holidays, link them at our December Challenge.  We have two themes:  "Celebrate the Holidays" and "Cold Winter Days".  Our sponsors are Bugaboo and Stitchy Bear. I was going to make a tag, but I had requests for Christmas ornaments for the tree.  This is Girlz Christmas Present by Bugaboo.

This image was perfect for my activity books for the children.  This is Criss Cross image to the left by Stitchy Bear and you can find it here.  The answers to the puzzle is to the right.

Butterfly Kisses

I would like to share my Design Team post for Scraps of Color Espire with you.  I altered a large paper mache mail box from Hobby Lobby.  My soror Vanecia Kimbrow was in mind after sharing an amazing testimony of Living with Lupus featured in Southern Soul magazine - October 2014 edition.  She's a vibrant young lady and busy as a bee,  although she evolves like a butterfly.  That was the inspiration behind the mailbox. Of course purple is the color ribbon for Lupus. Maybe she'll put all of her happy mail in it while she continues to be encouraged and "Keep it Moving".

Recipe Ingredients:
Die Cut with a View - Floral Foliage stack
Deco Art Regal Purple - acrylic paint
QuicKutz - Butterfly Die cut
Martha Stewart - Butterfly punches
Fiskars - paper trimmer
Hancock Fabrics lace
Michael's- feathers
Prima - bling
Spare Part - Flowers
Recollections - Purple shimmer mist, Orchid stickles, flowers

Love you Vanecia!

PJ Loves to Play

I am so enjoying my nephew and creating layouts for his album.  This is Patrick Junior at seven months.  Oh  how they grow up.  I'm using C'est Magnifique October sketch for this layout.  I wanted to use a masculine approach on this layout using a little distressing, and fun templates with modeling paste and mists.  I used Fiskars crimper tool on the upper left side to give a little texture to the paper.  See sketch below.

Pink Sunday

Just wanted to make a quick post and share the gift bags I made for our six Breast Cancer Survivors at church today.  We had a high time praising God for his goodness and mercy.  I finally finished Me and My Big Ideas Mambi paper pad I've had for at least 3 years!  Julie Nutting Doll Taylor was used on each bag.  I changed her hair up on a few.
