i have been busy!

so i have been busy scrapping and crafting-yay! and tim got me photoshop yesterday so i have been playing around on that. i found a site called pioneer woman and wow she is awesome! i cant wait to buy a photo printer so i can start scrapping with them! now back to the regular scheduled program-lol

first here is my layout for mothers & daughters creations, we were to pick a sketch by julie bonner and i chose #43 of last years

adore you
i handstitched the outside edge, i used daisy bucket paper (perfect harmony)
they can be found here at MDC store
i also did faux stitching, handcut the title and flowers

next there was a challenge over a scrapperie
we were to scraplift ourselves! what a cool challenge!
so i choose a older LO it was orginially 8x8 and i turned it into 12x12

apple of my eye
i used sassafras apple delight paper, paper pieced apple, handstitching, and i also cut the title out from chipboard letters that i wont use-lol

and last i signed up for chemo-angels i sent a card to a cancer patient once a week so here is my card

ok first i want to say i did scraplift this, and i have no idea where i got it from, i did switch the placement around but i am sorry i cant give proper credit

i used my left over daisy bucket papers, and the smile came from 3 birds
i hope she likes it!

so thanks for coming by,happy scrapping!

finally did some scrapping!

well seems the sickness is over finally! and i got a chance to scrap-whoot!
family ties
i did handstitching and i cut out the tree by hand and the title! covered chipboard as well
i have to say i am really happy with how this turned out

next i did a challenge over at tally, called stop sitting on it
i NEVER do LO's about me, i always do them about sean or our family so this one was different for me! i have a hard time with journaling as well so i dont really do it that often

me @ 29
i used basic grey paper,and notebook paper
i also did handstitching and cutting of the 29

so i hope everyone is staying creative and keeping to their resolutions or goals
happy scrapping!
