I am going crazy in this house with the flu bug. I had signed up for a camera class to learn how to use my camera that my hubby got me for Christmas. I know how to use it but not use it use it. Like in Manual mode and all the cool stuff. MY OLD CAMERA I KNOW it in and out. I just have to learn this one and all the functions and stuff. what BETTER WAY to learn all this (and get great lessons too!) I JUST have to get where I can hold the blame thing it is heavy as a dadgum stone!) I do keep it around where I can easily access it whenever I need to. When I want to take photos it usually involves Bella and one of the animals. Today was no different.
Yall may remember Sybil?
She was not the sweetest of the kitties when she was a baby. That is why we named her sybil. Well ok THAT is not why we named her that. SHE IS CRAZY. THAT is why we named her sybil. She would look soo soo sweet then turn into a vicious claw dragging monster that would EAT your face off and then just calmly walk off like what? after she had just clawed your face off. YES after you had been holding her for a few minutes she would just go slap sybil 8 personalities CARAAZY! The cat is psycho. she needed somethin. So we gave her a name... sybil. and we got her fixed.
SHE HAS gotten much better.
Although I DO stay my distance and keep it through the door with that one...
politely wave and smile and ask "how goes it syb" She will let John and Bella pick her up and pet her and not Eat their face as much now.
mmhm, Yay for them...
I decided I had had enough of this flu today and even though I still have not had the shoulder surgery and yes I am still coughing my head off (this layout is covered in germs sorry)
I was going to scrap. I have had it. I am tired of it all. SO yes this is a sloppy torn messy inky page BUT LOOK HOW SWEET THIS PHOTO IS?!!
Was a lucky shot I have to admit. This morning walking to the kitchen Bella was sitting there playing and I snapped some photos and just luckily caught this.
I HAD TO SCRAP IT.. is all there is to it.
DO you ever DO THAT??? You get a photo and everything stops and YOU JUST HAVE to scrap it right then and there?
well this was that photo. I just LOVED it.
It stole my heart.
So about this page...
I used my Scarlet Lime Kit.. Don't EVEN ASKK ME which one.. I USED ALL OF THEM!!
YES.. ALL OF THEM. I havent scrapped in a while didnt you READ THAT?? I have a box full of kits and stuff over here that would make a scrapbook store jealous. So I just went through and said I am using this this this and this and OHHHHH THIS and omg I DIDNT KNOW THISSSSSSS was in there! I sat in the floor and just had a party all to myself. Was rather fun! I must say!
I dunno about you but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE all the embellishments you get in those kits! I know Bella does too. She swoooons over MS CHRISTYS KITS. SHE sees her name in the return box and she SQUEALSSS that its gonna be SPARKLY STUFFF!! and just giggles.
I need to video it so you guys can see it is funny and makes me smile big.
So In one of the kits there were these Pink Paislee borderlines That are on the top there where it says "QUEEN" they are clear so you can see the paper behind it and get the pretty writing! SOOOO CUTEEE! I don't know which month that was in but looove thoseee!
Jenni Bowlin Sticker borders, I used those all over this page to accent here and there. (dunno what month that was I think Jan.?) I LOVE Jenni Bowlin ANYTHING!!! Her newest stuff BE STILL MY HEART!
That is Pink Paislee Patterned Paper and American Crafts and October Afternoon as well as Bazzill Cardstock behind it all.
OH I have to show y'all how I sprayed the paper at the top. It tore so I stapled it with the tiny attacher by Tim Holtz.
This is an inexpensive way to use your mists if you dont have a mat and not waste your mists.
I use a box that some of my kits in the past have come in. I tear off waxed paper put in the bottom before I spray, put my project, or whatever I am spraying down in the bottom. Then spray. Then I can take flowers or anything else I want to soak up the over spray off the waxed paper. It doesn't absorp the mist and it isn't wasted.
I also can use different techniques this way as well.
American Crafts Thickers and metal accents. Doodlebug jewels
Assorted ribbons and trim from chatterbox I used the swirlies from the American Crafts thickers to make a heart to go around Sybils crazy little head.
I also took the ribbon and made gathers, I dont sew.. so I used the tiny attacher by Tim Holtz, I love that thing! Can be used for so much.
Here you can look at it again so you dont have to scroll.
The edger by making memories makes it easier to distress.
Colorbox fluid inkchalks accent the edges to make it stand out.
feels good to have scrapped.
now to finish working on my new unkit after I rest a bit. Here is what I have been working On. This book I have been making for a while now from the LAST UNKIT of our Breakfast at Point Clear with a special guest (guess who)
Here is a lil sneaky peaky:
Check out the flowers... ya I made those! From Paper AND FUN SPARKLY STUFFS!
Who knows I may just show you how to do those flowers(Really easy)
I got alot of catching up to do. I KNOW I KNOW... ROME wasn't built in a day... Good thing I'm not building ROME huh? hope you have a great weekend and are able to do something scrappy!
