Is It Really September?

This is a layout I did from a sketch that my friend Irene did for a for a feature for Scrap In Japan . She is a guest designer this month, For more info and a link to the Magazine http://scrapperlicious.blogspot.com/2009/09/guest-designer-of-scrap-in-japan.html. I still need to submit this. I used papers from several companies and the embellies and flowers all came from Pages In Time Store http://pagesintimestoresite.ning.com/and for the background piece I cut a piece of acrylic and then embossed using Distress embossing powder. You really have to fuss around and do a section at a time to get it to curl evenly because it does curl. Keep pokey tools handy (skewers) This is a layout that I did using Sketch 35 from 52Sketches52Weeks. I have been so busy lately I haven't been doing the 52 sketches and they are one of my fave sites. The paper here is the new Basic Grey Indian Summer. These are photos of Claudette from her first fall 10 years ago. I can't believe she will be 11 next month.

Basic Grey Indian Summer again.This is a Pile It On Challenge Card. Pile It On http://pileitonchallenge.blogspot.com/ Birthday Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog #13http://diecutdreams.blogspot.com/ Orange and Chocolate and the sketch is from Little Paper Shop http://littlepapershop.blogspot.com/. I just love doing these kind of challenges. Again I haven't been able to do too many lately. The image here is one by Mo from Mo's Digital Pencil Too http://www.digitalpenciltoo.blogspot.com/ as are the images in the next 4 cards. I just love her stuff and there is a great group over at Paper Craft Planet http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/mosdigitalpencil and another group at SNR Card Universe http://snrcardiverse.ning.com/group/mosdigitalpencil. Come check it out. I LOVE mo's images and I'm sure you will too. This is Birthday Hamster

This is Christmas Fairy Holly, I used the new Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. I also got 2 new nesties sets and I couldn't decide which size to use so I just used a bunch.

Again Basic Grey and new Nesties, some liquid pearls and rhinestones and stickles on this "Fairy Tabia"

Noelle Bearing Gifts paper by My Minds eye

I have been using colored pencil and mineral spirits to do the coloring on most of these.

Toboggan. Bella and Bronte on a Toboggan, how cute is that.

And this little Frillie Nellie Bon Bon, Digital Image is by Pink Petticoat. These are really cute too.

Have a great weekend.
