The Princess and the Frog

Well I was at it again today.  Little Fat Book Club isn't for a month but I thought I would get a head start on it. Can you guess the Theme... Well the theme is frogs, which at first I was thinking what am I going to do with frogs?  Then yesterday while blog hopping (cause I can) I found this gorgeous image from some variation of "The Princess and the Frog"  I cut the image out and then "painted" the gold areas of the image with gold smooch.  Then I took a nice piece of paper from a Prima Marketing mat stack (it was the Alice in Wonderland themed one) I altered the paper with swipes of gold paint from Ranger.  I then stamped a Fancy Pants stamp in Purple Pansy ink (CTMH), then I took green smooch and traced all the stems on the stamped image and colored the edges of the buds in the same color.  The last thing I did with the stamped image was color all the "buds" and centers of the flowers in white smooch.  I stamped butterflies (one from Fancy Pants and two from Tim Holtz) in embossing ink (Distress from Ranger) and embossed them one was in a red/orange color the other two in purple.  Then I stamped what I would consider a Queens Anne's lace like flower in embossing powder then embossed that in white.  I glued down my princess and then foam dotted my frog.  Lastly I embossed inked the words "The Princess and The Frog" and embossed in gold embossing powder.  I think this side came out perfect.  I'm going to use another image of some cute vintage frogs, but for now I'm done for the night it is almost time for Big Bang theory!! I can't wait.

As for life at this moment I'm good.  I passed my final certification exam!  I was extremely nervous and trying not to think about it for the past month because at the time on top of trying to study I was dealing with the death of my ferret and another one being sick.  So I didn't think I did well.  Now I can sub which will be nice.  It looks like things are starting to go my way again.  Stormy my sicky ferret is doing a little better.  She is eating hard food again, she sleeps a lot.  I'm not ready to reintroduce her to the rest of the clan cause she is no where near a hundred percent and I want still watch what she is eating.  Other wise it is hard to see what she is eating compared to three other ferrets lol.  They can be a handful as a group, but I love them.

Famous Women Swap

Well I know I have been MIA again.  Lots of stuff going on and I wasn't too sure if I was going to get to this months swap nor did I feel really inspired by them, which happens sometimes.  But after a lot of thought I decided to do the vintage room's Famous Woman swap.  I went with women that inspire me and that I grew up with, which is a little different cause it may not be people that the people with in the group may have picked.  I typically try to pick people that I know that other people wont choose.  So I went with Marlyn who I grow to love she is just a beautiful woman and I just love her sex appeal.  Then Madonna who I have grown up with.  A baby in the early 80s with a teen mom (when teen mom's weren't cool) I listened Madonna, Cyndi, Aerosmith the list goes on and on.  So although I don't love the "newer" Madonna I liked her earlier stuff.  And Last but not least I chose Gwen Stefani.  I love No Doubt and Gwen on her own.  I think to be honest she was one of the first female rockers I heard.  So as you can see they come together as a series with the red, black and white colors and Tim Holtz stamp images on a red painted background.  I also embellished their lips.  Marilyn with pink smooch and Madonna and Gwen with Clear accents.  I love how they came out I kinda want them for myself but that isn't what it comes down to.  The point is to swap with friends and I hope these cards find there way to someone who will enjoy them just as much as I did creating them.
