Hoping to be crafty today

Well Tabitha is coming over. For those of you just tuning in she is my bestie and Fellow "Tree Killer" as my lovely little cousin called us after seeing my scrapbook paper rack full of paper. We not only create amazing things together but we get each other in shopping trouble (Micheal's is our addiction). Anyway I hope to be productive today, but who knows. I have some picture developed some Gift ideas to possiblely make and sell on craig's list. We'll see. Off to get the rest of my supplies ready to go. I will hopefully be able to post pretty pictures later of my art. TTYL Pin It Now!

Mother Layout




Let me start off with this is one of my all time favorite pictures of my mom and I. I knew as soon as I saw it that it was going to be an 8x10 so I sent it to cvs along with some other childhood photos and it was the first layout I did yesterday at my Former boss lady and one of my favorite creative lady's house. I kept looking at it and knew something was missing that I didn't have with me so I put it aside and moved on to another layout. Then I this morning I went to Morethenjustscrapbooking.com and saw that they had a sketch challenge for this month that looked really close to my already partly done layout. So I put the sketch into paint and flipped a couple times to get something closer to my layout then added some key elements (the swirl from Tim Holtz after being inked and the flower and button from Prima Marketing). I pretty please with the final product!! Enjoy below are the original Sketch and the one I got from playing around.
