Blogaversary, or something like that...

My blog was a year old this weekend and to celebrate I want give a kit RAK that I put together with some of my favorite colors and goodies! Just post a comment to enter. I've put in some of the flowers that I misted and punched and some of the new Que Sera Sera, Sassafrass, Amy Butler, and other fun stuff for one lucky poster! I can't tell you how much your comments and encouragement mean to me!! Thank you! I'll do the drawing this weekend.




I mentioned the flowers that we had made and thought I would share a few with you. The ones made with book pages are my favorite - I made some of my own glimmer mists using pigment powders and water and hairspray and spritzed the pages and then punched some out - they are layered with tulle, stickles, cardboard, fabric, you name it! I have to thank Gayle for the inspiration on some of these!! ;) Except for the hot glue gun blister fun was had by all! That would be me, of course.

A couple of the small ones I really like:

And my favorite one:


I played along with Scrapping the Music last week and saw this morning that my layout was chosen for the hall of fame! I have to give a shout out to the fabulous Sasha Farina, she just posted a scrap challenge to use craft, bright colors, arrow and stickers - so this was my result and the song at STM was perfect for the title and journaling. Did you spot one of my new flowers? ;)


We had a great weekend - went to a party for my friends, Michelle and Ray, who are getting married next month and then on Sunday went to the Suwannee River to let Em do a little fishing. Her first fish - but she was kind of scared to reel it in, but when she saw it was like - Oh!! It's so CUTE!!



A shot from our dock downstream. The Suwannee is fed from the Okefenokee Swamp and the water is tea colored from the tanic acid - didn't want you to think it was dirty.


And this is what I did - besides taking photos. So relaxing!


I am starting Dina Wakley's art journal class tomorrow!! Yay! I mixed some new mists and have my watercolor journal ready! Have a great week!
