And even more catch up...

Attended a crop with several of the Women Who Do Lunch bunch at Cynthia's today.  And I even got some layouts done.  I had intended to work on the Med cruise album but forgot the papers so returned to my favorite topics...my grand children. 

Leighton Kaye in her Papa's Aussie hat.  Sure wish Prima still made these gorgeous papers.

Another of my Funny Bunny and this one is from Easter this past year.  Her "Auntie NeNe" gave her this outfit and it fit her personality to a tee.  I loved the little acrylic tags from American Craft and how easy it was to add color to them.

And, for a change of pace...Colvin!
I deliberately kept this one very simple.  The pictures I took of my grandson at his last sleep over at our house seems to say it all.  We take each of the twins separately for sleep overs at Nana and Papa's.  This gives the sleep over boy a chance to get undivided attention and the other to get be the only boy with Mama and Daddy.

Thanks for looking.  And have a great Memorial Day.  Many thanks to our Cynthia for hosting the crop.

Playing Catch Up

I am sitting here looking at about 40 layouts stacked on my work room floor.  Some...ok, a few, are finished and just need to be put into albums.  Others need journaling, titles, repairs etc.  I've done these over the past few months at various day and away crops with friends.  I am experiencing a need to return to the good old traditional scrap booking.  I am playing catch up and enjoying it a lot.

Here are just a few and Iwill post more when they are finished, journaled, titles, repaired.  Thanks for looking.

Welcome to my World with Art Anthology

This month, the theme at Art Anthology is inventions and inventors.  I used glasses as my invention to create. Thanks to the wonderful sprays and paints available through Art Anthology and this wonderful digital "Industrial" stamp from Gecko Galz.  And thanks to whomever invented eye glasses as my world is much clearer with them.  For all the details on how I created this canvas, click HERE.


Just look at the amazing colors I got with just one of the Colorations sprays.

A close up of the digital stamp.

Thanks, as always, for looking.  All comments are greatly appreciated.

A home for the gnome with Art Anthology goodness

My grandchildren love to arrange and rearrange the gnomes who reside in our lower garden.  They often ask where do the gnomes live.  I've answered their question with this one little gnome home.  Now they each want to make one of their own.  This will be fun!







For complete directions and a listing of the amazing Art Anthology products I used to create this little gnome home, check HERE.
