Good Morning….

Happy Tuesday Everyone…I hope this post finds you all doing well today!!!  It’s a crisp morning here….but no rain….that’s supposed to return tomorrow…Ugh….we have so much high water around here….just hope we don’t get massive flooding….But..ANYWAY!!! 😉

I had shared the other day I would try to get pictures of the scrapbook pages I’ve done so far posted… so those of you who might want to peak could…..I decided just to upload them to an album and let you just go to the album and view them …as opposed to posting each of them here…you would be scrolling a while!! 😉

So….anyone interested….here’s the link below…

SCRAPBOOK PAGES CREATED THROUGH 2/27/2018

Alexis Layouts (2)

The boys in this page are my 2 sons when they were MUCH younger….LOL…but this was the bestest doggie to ever have lived!! 😉

I’m happy with how they’ve turned out so far…..and love how I’m truly enjoying creating those…..I Made a decision a couple months back that was huge for me….I enjoy printing my scrapbook pages and embellishments myself rather than using the paper stacks you purchase from the stores….(mind you I have tons of those…LOL)

I previously had an Epson 7510 12×12 printer which I loved….but printing your own papers can go through the ink cartridges rather quickly….so I took the plunge and invested in the Epson Eco tank ET-16500…and OMGoodness….this machine is a dream!!!! It works with bottles of inks that you fill the tanks with…supposedly the bottle of each color is to give you prints for approximately a year…..but they are so economically priced even if it only lasts 6 months it will pay for itself in no time….

So now when I print my papers and embellishments I don’t feel guilty doing it…I just love being able to put that extra special touch on my pages….

Okie Dokie…Time for me to go to work…YUCK!! 😉  I would like to wish you all a very blessed day…and I hope you will stop by and visit again…Until next time!!

Challenge Met….

How about this!! 2 Challenges in 1 day!! I’m on a roll…..now for it to just continue!!!  Again it’s for the Outlawz Ning Group and this one is the Special Challenge using a digi image….the particular image I’m using for this challenge is from artist Sheepskidesign

Sheepskidesign Sunflower Image

Isn’t that a pretty image?….Well I decided to work on another scrapbook page…..so here’s what I created incorporating that image….

I think the digi image works well with the layout I created….don’t you???  And I must admit I am enjoying taking a particular element that is required and incorporating it into a layout I’m creating….helps expand your creativity….If you haven’t done this before I would really give it some thought to trying it…..

I have taken photos of all the scrapbook pages I’ve created so far……I will work on sharing them with you in the next few days…..who knows….may even get it done tomorrow afternoon….Tomorrow morning we go to look at the venue once more for the upcoming wedding of our youngest son and his fiancé…..we are so ready for this wedding….they have loved each other since the 7th grade…it’s a beautiful love story with joy, heartbreak and joy again…..and they are truly soul mates…..I had the honor of creating their save the dates…..thought I would show a pic of that here….I love how they turned out…

Kendel & Dylan Save the Date

Didn’t it turn out awesome…and don’t they look so happy!!! This mama couldn’t be more proud!!

Okie Dokie….that’s it for me for the night!!! Thanks again for stopping by to visit with me….I wish you all a very blessed and safe evening and Sunday!!!  Until next time…

A little fun with paper….

Happy Sunday Everyone….I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend….WOWZERS it was COLD here……no snow but crisp and windy temps……
So……nothing earth shattering created by me this weekend…but I did manage to get a couple things made I had been thinking about for a while…..I think they turned out pretty….and would be perfect adornments to a Mixed Media project or perhaps a card or scrapbook page…..

PDC Rose Corner Spray with Butterfly

I had a lot of fun creating these….I used my PDC Grungy Rose File for the roses, my PDC Calla Lily File for the Calla Lilies and a couple of leaf files I’ve not yet shared……and some of my Butterflies….
I’m not sure if anyone would have the perfect project for one of these creations but I have listed them on My ETSY Store if someone might be interested……
It felt good to just play and I so love making roses…..so it was a FUN weekend for me…..I’ve started on a new project I have been thinking about for a while and hoping to have it done by next weekend…I really think some might like it……hoping so anyway…..
As always…THANK YOU so much for stopping by to visit with me…..I pray you all have a wonderfully blessed week and I hope you’ll come by again….Until next time….
