I used my favorite stand by - Gesso! Gesso is my most used art supply. Loving this color combination with the Prima and Sassafrass and the windows.
I have been completely overwhelmed by the response to The Next Step!! Thank you all so much for your support and comments - I can't wait to get started on Monday with the first technique. I'll give you a hint - you'll be using paint and stamps. Hmmmm....sound interesting? ;) I noticed some of you are already spreading the word about the blog and I can't tell you how much that means to me! You can pick up a blinkie on the site if you want...you never know if I might want to do a RAK for someone. ;)
I've been busily working on some other new stuff that I will be sharing soon for NSD at AMM but that's all for now. Oh, Did you see the new Webster's blinkie!! Isn't it cute?
See you soon!

And working on a sketch and project for this! Hope you can join us on May 2 and 3 at A Million Memories for the National Scrapbooking Day Bash!! There will be lots of fun stuff going on!
Also, working on some layouts for Scrapping the Music. I was thrilled to be asked to guest artist for May!
And normal life - my friend and I took our girls to the beach on Wednesday - it was so nice, around 80' with a light breeze. They had a wonderful time and I got some great photos that I am eager to scrap - good thing I have plenty of upcoming projects. ;) Em was trying out her Disco moves - I guess she picked them up from watching American Idol the other night. It was hilarious!! Hope you are having a wonderful week and looking forward to the weekend! See you soon!

So here you go! My work with the April kit.....you can see the article on burlap and the other design teams work here.
Look at what a little cutie Mark was! I love these Pink Paislee papers with the black and white photo.
I used this one also for Creative Therapy - the challenge was what makes you laugh. That one wasn't hard. ;) Em loves to tell riddles and jokes and I journaled her faves around the edges. This photo makes me smile every time I see it. And look at the gorgeous Fancy Pants here!!
Traci sent me this wooden frame to alter - I made a burlap flower and added some crackle paint. The barb-wire is the reverse of the TH mask.

In this layout I crumpled the printed vellum sheet and layered it over the background with stitching and the brown frame is from the new cardstock stickers. This is a photo of my grandma and her younger brother.
Added a touch of lime green paint to this to make it pop a little. Isn't this a great photo! :)
I love this photo that I took on the rehearsal day for Michelle's wedding. I tryed to frame it to really draw your eye into the photo. The background is misted with blue ink to give some contrast and depth.
And a little gift card tin that I altered. I ran the vellum card through my zyron and it attached perfectly!

I'm just trying to finish up a couple of altered items I am making and then I will reveal all! Also making progress on the new technique challenge blog - my friends, Gayle and Beth are working on it with me! I am so excited - we are calling it The Next Step. Stay tuned!!
It's been sort of a long week, even though it is only Wednesday. Em has been sick and I'm a little worn out. But she seems much better today and I am ready to get busy.
I've been trying to catch up in blogland, so I'll see you soon. ;D

This is a hybrid layout - the brick circle and the photos are all printed in one - I changed the colors of the bricks some - they are a digital paper from Prima. The drop shadows and outlining on the photos make it look pretty dimensional, I think.
Playing along with Scrapping the Music this week - the song is Everyday by Dave Matthews - a great song and fit my feelings of the day perfectly. Also used Prima's sketch for April for starting the layout, so another two-fer. ;)
Thank you so much for all of the good wishes about the AMM DT!!! I am still so excited! This weekend Michelle is having a huge sale! 20% off your entire order!! Go check it out - there are lots of great new releases this month's kit is gorgeous!!
Have a great weekend and I'll see you soon!
