Not only because of the FFF (2 images this week)
but this has been a long week.
SO this week the theme for FFF is texture.
We want to see your projects with texture...
paint, fabric, embossing, feathers whatever just give us texture!
I sponges and sprayed my back ground...used glitter for me letters...and puff balss for my spiders!
I used a template for the card and fussy cut my image.
I used a clear star gel pen to go over her dress, boots and pumpkin face!

Welcome to another challenge at
This week the theme came from me!
I have had Halloween on the brain, can you tell?
Anyway the actual challenge is
1 Ribbon
2 Embellishments (flowers, metal, etc..)
3 Decorative Papers
I made a treat bag using the new
I considered the RIP to be one embelly and the skull to be the other.
You cannot see the ribbon that is a handle and
of course the bow holding on the tags.
My decorative papers came from Martha Stewart
and I used one for the bag, one for the large tag (bats) and
one for the inside and the to, from tag.
The bag/holder is supposed to have a whole rather
than a ribbon handle but I liked the tombstone look!
I hope you join us for this fun and fabulous challenge!

Scare Me Silly With Scrapper's Delights!

WOW it is Sunday already!
Been a very short weekend...too short!
This week at Scrapper's Delights I got to choose the challenge theme!
I decided to go with:

Scare Me Silly!

I am one of those people who love horror films, books and well Halloween.
I actually read IT by Stephen King when I was 13.

OK back to the challenge!

Here is what I came up with using one of Janice's newest "Autumn Nymph" (#1)

My watermark covers  a bit of the spider and web! LOL
My nymph turned out a little more orange than what I was going for.
The flowers and leaves on her body I tried to make look more like spider webs using a spice pen
and her wings are a combination of spica and gel pens.
In person she actually has a bit of evil in her eyes! LOL
Hope you can join us at Scrapper's Delights Challenge this week!
I mean,heck who doesn't love Halloween and
a good scare!

Two Posts, Two Challenges and 1 Birthday

I have two posts today!
One for Guylou's Inimitability here...
and one for Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday here.
Also 16 years ago today I was blessed with my
daughter Jenna Nicole!
As much gray hair she has given me,
nights laying awake wondering what kind of parent I am,
tears of frustration,
it matches
the laughter,
the hugs,
the joy
and the love she has given me!

OK I should have cut this...
This was at a party Jenna and I went to...
From Left to right
Tracy, Becky, Jenna and me.
Yes that is what I look like after working and NO makeup at all! LOL
But that is my beautiful Sweet 16 Girl!

GI Challenge Just To Die For

This week starts our next challenge at
Chana one of my charming and talented DT teamie chose
"Just To Die For"
You need to make a project with
your favorite fancy die!
I chose to use one of my new dies from Memory Box.
The picture did not show the die very well but
the tub and water turned out the best in this picture!
I used copics to color Lotus in Her Bath...
I used liquid pearls for the bath and water.
I liked the laquer look!
I used new firework spray on the paper and the die cut,
used mesh, vellum and a piece of textured paper
for the "stuff" behind the tub!
Check out the challenge here.

FFF Support A Cause!

Hi all!
It's Friday and that means it is time for a freebie!
This weeks Fabulous Friday Freebie is:
Support A Cause!
The theme is "Support The Girls"
so your project should be for encouragement or support
AND a bonus for adding PINK!
Here is what I made:
I colored her with Copics and Prisma markers.
The paper is from Posh by Teresa Collins,
butterflies from Martha Stewart, flowers and pearl string
from Wild Orchid and
the words are rub-ons.
I chose "Hope" and "Inspire" because I think that
those two words are perfect for cancer survivors...
they inspire me and give me father, both grandmothers,
grandfather and uncle died from some sort of cancer....
Make sure you get over to SSD on PCP and check out
the fabulous freebie!
