A Digi LO!

My mother-in-law's little doggie, Coco is just the cutest!  She is so mellow and sweet.  She also takes long walks on the beach with me!  I took these pictures of Coco a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks for looking and Happy Scrapping!

Catching Up!

I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since I last posted.  I've been dealing with some medical problems lately that has me a bit self-absorbed.  I'm home today because I have a doctor's appt this afternoon to go over the results of some special blood tests that she had me do.

First I want to start off with the Tellen's Place Challenge this week which is "Going to the Chapel!"  That's right, we want to see your wedding projects!

Charles and I got married 8 years ago and I've been scrapping for about 4 years now--I realized that I never did any LOs of our wedding.  We were married at a beautiful Bed and Breakfast Inn in Hyde Park, New York.  Our wedding dinner took place at a great restaurant right on the Hudson River.  Thinking back on that magical day has prompted me to continue scrapping my wedding day and create a wedding scrapbook.  So look for more postings of my wedding day!  And I'll start with this LO!
Here's some details:
I sprayed these chipboard letters with Tattered Angels shimmer mists.  And I must comment on my fabulous hat--It's just fabulous ;D
These chipboard embellies are so old that I almost forgot I had them, but I'm glad I remembered because they were perfect for this LO.
I also tried my hand at some hand sewing that I've seen popping up on LOs all over the web.
I created a pocket out of this picture where I was able to slide my tag in with my journaling
You must go over to Tellen's Place and join in on the fun!  I didn't post Tellen's Place Challenge from last week which was Father's Day.  Since I know you played along last week, I'm sure you saw my card posted there!!!  Temple and I will be presenting this card to Charles on Sunday.  He is so no frills and a less is more kind of guy that I decided to keep this card sweet and simple.  Charles is such an active guy that he's also gonna love Edward on his skateboard.
On to my Birthday Blog Candy Giveaway.  When I sent my winners (Shari - 1st pick; Sandra - 2nd pick; Terry - 3rd pick) their goodies I included this card in the packages asking them to create a project for me to post here.  These lovely ladies did not disappoint! 
Not only did Terry make these beautiful tags, but she actually sent them to me.  The family tag was for Charles and you can see the beautiful pink tag has my name on it and Temple's has her name.  You really have to see these tags in person to truly appreciate the work that went into them.
Rose Petal did several projects which are totally awesome!  My favorite is that really cute box!
Cricutrookie did a wonderful LO of her daughter and little friend ;D and used some of the goodies I sent her on the project!

Well, I have gotten to the end of this post, and I'll try not to stay away so long next time.  I've actually done a couple of LOs of Temple to include in her School scrapbook that I'll share with you later.

Thanks for looking and Happy Scrapping!

Some Digi LOs

Good Morning!

We are on our way to Disney World for the day!  I hope you have something fun planned as well.  I was getting ready to do a digi while on this drive down and came across this digi that I did last week, I think, of myself!
This is a picture of Temple and one of her girlfriend's, Valerie, that was taken about 2 years ago.  It's amazing how much she's grown since.
This was a quick page template that I used to do a quick page ;) of Temple and Tatiana!
I was totally intrigued by my good friend's EssenseVibez ability to digitally color in her digi images.  So I gave it a shot and found it fun to do!  Once again Temple and Tatiana!
Thanks for looking and Happy Scrapping!

GDT Member at ARTastic!!!

I have been waiting for several months to announce that I am GDT member for the month of June at ARTastic!!!  ARTastic is a monthly challenge blog that provides artwork as the inspiration.

This month's inspiration piece is "The Perfumed Garden" by John Coburn:

I just loved the beautiful tree and the muted colors.  The birds are lovely and color of the falling leaves is gorgeous! Here's my interpretation of the piece!

There are also Diva Demands to earn an extra 6 points!  They are:

1 x tree = 1pt
2 x different coloured birds = 2pts
3 x falling leaves = 3pts
It was fun to photoshop our pictures into the shape of the falling leaves.  Here are some closeups:
The scalloped photo is another Photoshopped picture.

So please go over and visit my friend Shazza and join in on this fun challenge!

Happy Scrapping!

Tellen's Place - PP Challenge

It's Wednesday, which means there's a new challenge over at Tellen's Place!  This week, you are challenged to use 2 PPs in your project.  O.K., I was a bit liberal with my PPs--I think I used about 3 or 4;D:
I love these pictures of Temple--they are actually her end of year school pictures, hence my apple PP!  I did a lot more journaling than I usually do, but I wanted to say a little bit about her school accomplishments this year in first grade--I also wanted to write down a list of some of her personality traits. 

Now go on over to Tellen's Place and join in on this fun challenge!

Happy Scrapping!
