Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Paul Klee Inspired Swap

This ATC swap was supposed to be done on your impression of "Paul Klee". Never heard of him? Me either so I Googled him. I didn't understand his kind of art. It seemed to me that anything goes so I jumped into this swap. I thought that it would be easy. It wasn't! I really didn't care for his kind of art. It was so hard for me to create watercolor and ink paintings that I myself didn't even like. These are what I ended up with. Yes, I know that they're horrid.

   I know that I usually blog the ATC's that I received in each swap. This time I decided not to wait until I received my returns. The hostess of this swap is posting the ATC's of each player in an album in ATC World. I like to be the first to show my ATC's on my own blog before they are displayed.somewhere else. I will update this blog when I receive my returns. Trust me I am not unhappy about the hostess showing the cards, in fact I'm over the moon happy. Every time that I enter a swap I always wish that I could see the other players cards. This is really a dream come true especially since I am so sure that I really missed the mark with this theme. The first was Goldie Startled. The second try was Petal Dance. The third was Tormented Mind. I hoped each try that I would get closer. If this was baseball I would be out! I can hardly wait to see the pictures of what the other players came up with.

   I promised that I would blog the ATC's that I received in this swap. Here they are.

The ATC's That I Received

   I guess now that you can see how much I really missed the mark. Oh well. At least I did try.

Soccer Star Scrapbook Spread

   This page was a wee bit hard for me to do. I didn't take enough pictures. Can you imagine me not taking enough pictures? I only had three pictures of my granddaughter to work with. It was such a sticker for me that I sat it aside and done the Halloween spread while I let my unconscious mind work on it. It turned out so much better than I ever thought that it would.

  The background paper is an all over soccer ball print. Her school colors are of course orange and black so I used those colors for the frames and page details. All the stars were cut from either gold foil or gold holistic paper. I took a picture of her trophy enlarged it and then cut it out. Then I traced it on to black craft foam and cut it out and glued it on top of the foam. I hope that you like this page. I'm glad that it's done. I really got tired of cutting out stars and gluing them in place. It took forever!

Halloween Scrapbook Page Spread

   I know that I've been posting a lot of scrapbook pages on my blog. They've all been on my granddaughter. Today I have something special for you. This time these are of my little kids in their Halloween costumes. I brought this paper before last Halloween but just now pushed everything aside to do something that I really wanted to do. I've wanted to do these pages for years. I've finally done them and it was every bit as much fun as I thought it would be.

   I won't bother you with the details of how I made these pages. I have really fallen behind on my granddaughter's scrapbook and the 1st of June is coming fast. Even now I am putting the finishing touches on another page spread for her scrapbook. It's not even finished yet and I'm already drawing the page plan for the next page spread. Anyhow I hope that you enjoy these pages. If you have any questions please ask and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for viewing my Halloween pages.
