TGF Heart Journaling week4

Hi!  It's week 4 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  This week's theme is the girl in me and we had to draw!  Pretty scary trying to draw so I tried to think of a way to not put so much details into drawing a girl.  Hehe, maybe it's cheating?  And the tip was to try using a medium we've never used before.   

My daughter's layout.  While I was out shopping for extra school supplies, I saw a Crayola painting set and thought we could try those.  So my daughter used paints to make a rainbow and then she drew some girls (her friends?) on paper and cut them out.  I think it looks happy and bright.

Okay, here's mine.  I don't know who thought of the rainbow idea first but some how we ended up with similar backgrounds!  Maybe cause there were so many different colored paints, it reminded both of us of rainbows.  My 2 boys painted their own rainbows too!  See, I told you I didn't want to draw detailed girls.  I used black paint to draw me and my daughter.  Then my kids told me it looked scary, like ghosts.  Hahaha, but I didn't care much.  But now that I have more time, I found these metallic pencils while out shopping!  So I colored the black ghostly figures and outlined them with a Sharpie.  The funny, or maybe it's more sad, thing is that you probably wouldn't be able to tell who did which layout if I hadn't pointed it out.  Yeah, I paint/draw like a kid.

Well, tonight's the big wedding night.  In the end, I still wish them well.

Thanks for reading!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
