Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Focus / Pratical scrappers challenge!

I made this lo for the ps challenge..they want you to use buttons...I don't always think to use buttons on layouts or cards but thought I would give it a try...and I actually had fun doing this one...come check out ps @

I got this done while my dd was at preschool....this was a fast one, haven't had much time to do things for myself had to take advantage of my time...

I used George for the silhouette circles cut @ 3 1/4" twice (yellow) and then used the inner part of it also...

Used george for the circle cut @ 2 3/4" (blue) used inner part of circle

I then used simply sweet font cart for the title cut @ 1 1/2" "FOCUS"

I used ms flower punch, gel pens to make faux stitches...(love this technique)

I also used different colored buttons around the circles and for the flowers on the bottom of page...

I named this Focus since she was focussing so hard on where she was going...this was the 1st time at her Gram's steep driveway that she had to petal so hard up the hill of it. I hope you all like it...thanks for stopping by...and God bless all!

Another freezer paper shirt!

Hello ladies..well I finished this other shirt last night...still drying alittle but I wanted to post it...thank you to Wanda for the inspiration on this one...I love the LAB cart but I haven't used it to I used it for this shirt.

This shirt is for my nephew for his birthday, It is not until August but I love how it turned out...I have all the sizes if anyone wants them....I think he will love it because I used glow in the dark 3d fabric paint around the sharks and for the eyes, it is so cool in person.....wish you could see it glow...

On my dd I put life is good on the back but the glow in the dark paint on hers soaked alittle through it....I did not post this one because I messed the back up...

Oh well , that was my 1st try...she still wants to wear it to her is not that bad...Thanks for stopping by!
