Trick or Treat?

Yep today is the day...the munchkins get to wear their costumes and go trick or treating. I also get to post a treat. We just finished the 12 days of Halloween at Scrapping the Moments. Our wonderful DT member Jess challenged us to create a LO with only adding what she says on each day. The first day was 3 1x12" strips of patterened paper. Next was a banner...I adlibbed here a little and created the scalloped branch with the owls. Next was 2 journaling spots and then a photo. I matted my spot to count for 2. Then the journalling followed by a piece of ribbon, a handmade embellishment, a spider, 3 brads or buttons, a stamp or rubons, some bling, then finally the title. Viola...
I LOVE IT!!! Thanks Jess!

It is Christmas Time!

Well...not really. I mean Halloween isn't even over yet. But I am soo ready to decorate and start crafting for the season. I got to work with MME's 12 days of Christmas line for some of my DT projects this month. And well...I LOVED them! Check out this wall art I made....

I took a $5 frame from Walmart and added the background. I alcohol inked some Maya Road bottle caps, added some trim and embellishments from the MME line. Then the star...and viola...

I have to admit altering is not my thing. But, the challenge of it is way fun! I just love the way this turned out. So...if you are local...Go out to the Scrapbooking Studio to see this puppy in person, because the photo does not do it justice. And load up on some MME 12 days of Christmas!

Christmas LO

Wow...It has been a while since I posted. I've been scrapping, but scrapping super secret stuff that cannot be revealed yet. But I can show you this lo. I love it. I knew the MME Christmas papers would be perfect for these photos. Then Scrapping the Moments posted a wonderful sketch which was the inspiration and viola...
Misting, glubers, sewing...Way fun LO!!

Challenge time!

Yep, it is the 1st of the month, which means new challenges at The Moments. I host the scraplift challenge...Every month I post a layout for the members to lift. This month I chose this fabulous layout by Peggy. I just love everything about this lo. From the clouds, to the clustering of elements, to the cute photos.

Her layout inspired mine. I diecut the clouds and used them as masks then watercolored over them to create the sky. Way fun! Then added my photos and elements...viola!!
I hope I have inspired you in some way...and if I did...come join me at the moments and share your creation!
