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.

Family made out of wood blocks / Sous challenge (LEAVES)

Hello ladies...Well Thanksgiving is right around the corner. So what better way to celebrate by making wooden blocks about Family. Family is everything to me. I love spending time with my family on the holidays. I started making this set of blocks for my mom and dad, but then I really loved how they turned out , so I am keeping them for myself and making another set. OH yeh, this is also for the SOUS challenge of LEAVES. THey want you to use a diecut of leaves....I think I did just that.

Wood from my husbands stash

Family (title) cut @ 2 1/2" in dcwv fall paper

Leaves cut @ 2" in yellow cardstock and shadowed with a bronze color. Cut with Storybook cart. Inked with tim holtz walnut stain

Fancy corner (leaf) cut @ 1 1/4" with Storybook....Those are the ones with the button glitter sunflowers.

I used ms border punch, bakers twine, ribbon, buttons, jewels, flower and some green leaves (on the Y) from my stash.

I hope you all enjoy my creation today and have a wonderful Tuesday.
