This is my card for “Sketch Girl” #8.  It is a 7x6 card.  So it is HUGE!  I used some of my Green Tangerines kit from last month and added the wood leaf- after I distressed it a little bit.  I love this picture of Jake from Kindergarten with the class mascot Bananas the monkey. They were snuggled up in his bed- so I knew it would be prefect for the COZY frame.

Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #51


It is Jen’s week this week!  This is what she had to say:

It's time to focus on Edward. Even though the stories are told from Bella's point of view all of the books with the exception of Breaking Dawn focus almost entirely on Edward, through Bella's mind. Even in New Moon when Edward is gone her every action is focused on not losing her connection with him. So for this challenge I want you to focus on your connection to Edward. What does his character mean to you?
For the creative challenge: Create a project that focuses on Edward.
For the comment portion: How do you feel about Edward's character? Is it like, love or disdain? Have you read the partial draft of Midnight Sun? What did you think about reading the story from his point of view?

Oh Mr. Edward……


I took a dudessentials sketch book and altered it EDWARD style!
That is HIM with diamond glaze on top.  Smooth glassy finish.

IMG_5578_editedIMG_5584_edited  IMG_5582 IMG_5583_edited I have BIG plans for this little sketch book.  Really it is so lovely I don’t even want to use it! haha

Hope you enjoyed!

Remember This Card?


I blogged about it here. 

And then I got my Green Tangerines kit club last month and it had this is it:


Would that NOT have been the perfect paper to use for that card?  Do you ever make something and then come across something after the fact that would have been even MORE perfect for it?

And speaking of cassettes……Isn’t this cool?



And then I have to share this with you….my fortune from Panda:



Probably enough random for you for one day…eh?

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
