My ACOT second Aug reveal...

While I keep my bigger sea shells that I have gathered over the years in a large bowel out on the lanai, I have wanted a special place to keep some beachy 'treasures' that are extra special to me (the shell I gathered the first time my honey and I went to the beach together, a float I bought my first visit, etc) some place special. These Creative Imagination papers, Beach Cottage, (IOD) were perfect for helping me to make a treasure box for my treasures out of a discarded cigar box.

I have posted a step by step on how to do this treasure box at A Cherry on Top right here.

As always, thank you so much for looking and all comments are appreciated!

Family 2011 (dimensional layout in a shadow box)


This is a Christmas present for the kids. It is a pretty safe bet they won't see it here so I am safe posting it. I used 12x12 canvas paper, gesso applied with an artist's spatula, Tim Holtz Stains, tiny glass bottles and hand dyed ribbon.

If you live in the Tampa area, I will be teaching this as a class in October
at Posh Scraps Date to be announced soon.

As always, thanks so very much for looking!

An Altered Life

My sister, who is undergoing radiation and chemo for cancer, has started a blog. She felt it would be thereputic to do so and I agree. We have lost so many of our relatives and many friends as well to cancer. This is my sister, Janet's second round of this. Here is her blog...if you could stop off now and then and encourage her please it would be greatly appreciated.
