Cosmo Cricket - Earth Love

I am so into Cosmo Cricket PP's right now. The Earth Love collection is one of my favs and the Jolly By Golly is so darn cute for the holidays. I am expecting some more this week and can't wait. Here is my 2nd page using the Earth Love collection. TFL! I so wanted to take this little guy home!!! Sigh! I used some beads at the bottom to give it a little walk way feel. Thank god for glossy accents they are sealed tight to the page. LOL

First Mini Book

First let me say how excited I am to be posting my first project for MOSD! This gave me the push I needed to make my first mini album ever! At first I was really nervous because thinking outside of a 12 x 12 page isn't easy. The hardest part on mini books is having to cut your pages and making sure that they all match. What's wonderful about the chipboard precuts is you don't have to worry about that.

For my covers I used the precut acrylic and i used acrylic paint around the edges. I was worried that over time the paint could easily chip away so I went over it with glossy accents. I then decorated it with flowers and bling.

I am an Aunt to 5 wonderful nieces and nephews so I used 1 page both sides to showcase each one. What I loved about this chipboard is the half circle edge so I used it to put each of their names. TFL!

Right Place Right Time

I was sitting on my balcony and about to get up when I heard something. I turned around and not even 2 feet away from me I saw an amazing thing. A grasshopper. So I quickly ran in the house and prayed that when I returned he would still be there. HE WAS!!! And I got some amazing shots. Here is the page I did with him titled "Thanks For Hopping By"

I'm Back

After a minor set back due to the surgery I am back. A few stitches were resting on my nerve and well that was quite painful. Now the stitches are gone and i am much better. After all that I finally managed to complete a page. Yippee! I used a sketch from 52 Sketches 52 Weeks to give me inspiration.

Here is my page

And here is the sketch

Post Operation LO's

It's so hard to believe that last Wednesday I had surgery done to my hand. What is more surprising is that I have been able to use it more than I thought I would. It was tough the first few days because I had to exercise my fingers. But I didn't let that stop me. I have managed to complete 2 LO's. For the LO Beauty Defined the journaling is "Beauty" defined in the dictionary. Here they are and TFL!!!
