Tree topper V ictorian Angel

Many thanks to Posh Scraps and A Cherry on Top for carrying the Helmar Adhesives I used to create our tree topper: 450 Quick Dry, Fabric Glue, Gemstone Glue and, my all time favorite, Liquid Scrap Dots.

Thank you for looking and all comments are gratefully accepted and appreciated.

Baby Leighton Kay

This first layout of Leighton Kaye was so hard for me to do. I am so used to doing little boy layouts, that I wasn't sure exactly where to start. I walked around Posh Scraps so many times hunting for the 'perfect' papers, etc, that I am sure I wore a path in the carpeting...and then, VOILA: Melissa Frances (the papers), Webster's Pages (the polka dot tulle) and Prima (that gorgeous flower) along with assorted ribbons and lace to the rescue.

I don't normally post my layouts on my altered art blog but, for my new granddaughter, I am making an exception.

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

I do realize my new background has made reading the lists on the left hard to read and, as soon as my son comes back, I'll have him adjust that for me...til then, sorry!

Featured Beautiful Blog

Steam Tea Travels. I try to visit the blogs of the people who comment on mine or who visit here. This one was like going on a lovely vacation far far away from computer, phones, I Pads, I Pods, and what a lovely escape. The owner of this blog writes so beautifully, the decision to select her blog was a walk in the park...or a trip on a steamer ship! Be sure to check it out and tell her I sent you, with love!

Decorated Gift Tubes

ACOT sent some of us who volunteered these clear plastic gift tubes. This is what I did with mine.

The one on the far left is done with stick on bling and Prima butterflys blinged up with Stickles. The next one is the one I call the Bachelorette Party gift how cool to hand that to the bride to be at the party filled with rolled up one dollar bills? The third from the left is my Holiday Pretty. This could be nestled into a table arrangement or give to guests at a holiday party. And the last one (far right) I did with alcohol inks and Krylon.

These were such fun and to order these tubes go to ACOT

Coming Soon

I have a couple of new things to post later today. And working on a plethora of Christmas goodies for Posh Scraps' upcoming Holiday Event on Nov 12.

New baby girl has us a bit distracted lately. And in a wonderfully nice way.
