Altered A

Over at Memory Scrappers yahoo group, we have a Ms. Memory Scrapper each month. How this works is, say like the month of June it's my good friend Ann, so all month long we send her lil goodies, handmade, store bought, or even found objects. Each time she receives a envie, that person gets put in the drawing for a chace at being the next months MMS. Sounds fun..huh? who doesn't like to open their mailbox and find lil goodies inside?
Here is a pic of an altered wooden letter A that I did for her. The picture really doesn't do it justice, it is MUCH more beautiful in person (tooting my own

Beautiful Card

My good friend Jenn had her tonsils taken out, so I made her a feel better card. I got the idea from a old magazine and put my own twist on it. It was all made from scraps other than the vellum butterfly paper. I bought that ages ago because it was pretty. I think it work wonderfully on the card.

Here is the inside of the card

I just LOVE these pictures of Dax at a small botanical garden in Center Point. He was so curious about everything and had to touch and explore it all! He especially liked the koi pond. The koi's would nibble on his lil fingers and he would laugh.

I think my friend Melody will love this layout, she really likes the look of different patterns and textures.

Just look at this cute flower I made with a zillion lil maybe not a zillion...but it sure was alot! LOL

I used Tim Holtz distressed ink techniques. They really give a cool effect! You swipe the ink pad on a piece of transparency, then use a mini mister sprayer and mist the ink with water, then slid your paper through the ink. If you need fast drying time, use your crafty heat gun to dry your paper. I then curled the lil circles around the shaft of my craft knife, then set out to glue them all together, added a decorative brad...and waa laa! a cute lil flower!

I think I need to start making some videos...what do you think?
