Family in Florida

So I am finally getting around to more of our vacation pictures from Florida....I say finally because we took this trip in June of 2008. There is nothing like taking your sweet time to get to trip pictures lol!

SO here is one that I just finished up tonight, I had most of it done but added the journalling and some more bling (you can never have enough sparkle on your pages!!). I had fun with the glimmer mist on this one mixing the orange and brown together to accent the paper colors. I also used the Big Shot to cut out and emboss the butterflies- I absolutely love the butterflies and the embossing on them just adds that something special. The flower on the left hand side is a cuttlebug embossing folder strip. I had no idea they made embossing folders in strips-SOOOOOOO incredibly COOL!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Playing with Flocking

So I finally got some scrappy time with my Mom this weekend and it felt GREAT!!!! There is something about fun colors and textured papers that just makes me happy!!

So I broke out the bottle of flocking that I have had for sometime now and gave it a play and this is where it lead.....just a tiny touch of flocking but now I think I will be a bit more brave and add more on following pages, so that means stay tuned for what hopefully will be flocking mania!! lol!

I used my glue pen from Stampin'Up! To trace the lines over my stamped image and then added the flocking to the stamped image in three lines. I like the effect and the flocking actually worked with the glue, which was great. I have a few other colors of flocking that I am now dying to try out so hopefully I can get to that sometime this week!

Here's the close up.

Needed a break

So I know it's been awhile and I do apologize for's just that the last month has been a difficult one. We lost a member of our family at the end of May and I guess it just hit me hard. It's been a trying time, but I am feeling better and getting back on my feet. I haven't been scrapbooking or creating as much and I am going to get back to that as well. So please stay tuned and yes, I promise that I will be around more!
