Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


This week’s challenge at The Cat’s Pajamas was a photo one, showing lots of flowers and colors of white, coral and mint green. My inspiration came in the form of an ATC using the Patterned Petals set to stamp then adding some small Prima flowers and white acrylic paint from Ranger. It was fun and I can use what I learned this time to make my next acrylic project even better!

It’s Tuesday again and time for a new challenge on the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog!

This is an easy one! Make a birthday card using a Michelle Perkett Studio image and send it to Operation Write Home! Check out the blog for all of the details-you CAN do this! 🙂

Here’s one from me:

Here’s another one using the techniques from Shimelle and her class, Love Your Pictures, Love Your Pages. It’s not too late to join!

I’m having a blast using up my supplies and scrapping for myself! I’ve frequently been on teams where I need to use a certain product, sketch or technique. I’m pretty lean with that commitment right now, so I’m really enjoying the change. It’s funny how you don’t realize it until a time like this.

I was inspired tonight by the My Mind’s Eye blog. There’s a sketch challenge going on and I hope this qualifies. The theme was “hope” and to use their sketch as a starting point. I tend to use sketches often and keep them pretty similar to the sketch. I do deviate occasionally of course, but stay true to the sketch for the most part.

The Lush line was the perfect base for this page. The flowers are from my “Maple Syrup” friend up North and came at the perfect time. It was a wonderful surprise to get an email from the lobby that I had a flower delivery. Thank you my friend. 🙂

Here are some new recipe pages for you. I actually had some time while sitting in front of the tv this weekend to sort the ones that I’ve accumulated from the different swaps this year. Holy cow, I have a shoebox full of them! I think that I might start binding them with the Bind-It-All. Or maybe I’ll put 4 on a 12×12 page?

What do you think, 6×6 album or 12×12 page?
