Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial day weekend! Today I'd like to share a lo that I did using an Once Upon a Sketch, sketch that, the very talented, Nadia made for the OUAS December challenge. As many of you know, I had undergone emergecy surgery at that time and was unable to participate with the rest of the team, but I just absolutely loved the sketch and decided to do it now....there is always something to celebrate about ...right!

That awesome clock/clock parts is from Imaginarium Designs. I used some embossing powder on it to get the color that I wanted. I just love ID chipboard!

As always, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Zeus and Zoe vintage bottle!

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share a vintage bottle that I decorated using goodies from my Zeus and Zoe kit. I took that gorgeous cluster of flowers and the vintage style key and added them to the bottle. Then I threw a spring of lavender in it , for a heavenly scent. The old bookpage, behind the bottle, was also in the kit...doesn't it make for a perfect backdrop display. I just love how versatile these kits are!

If you would like to see some of these gorgeous kits, I invite you to visit the Zeus and Zoe Etsy shop. (I must warn you, the kits go fast)!

As always, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge!

Hi everyone! It's that time again....AFSC has a new challenge for you! Yup, it's live and ever so easy. This time we would like you to scrap about your garden... how you love to be out in it, or what it means to you, or alternatively how you hate to be outside gardening at all. If you are not a gardener - you could also alternatively scrap about an outdoor sanctuary that you appreciate – perhaps your mother’s garden or a park???? For me, I scrapped about how I start my garden every year...with some flowers for my flower boxes....

I can't wait to see what you come up with!
