TGF Heart Journaling--week 22

Hi!  It's week 22 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  The theme this week is music and to create a page based on your favorite song/tune.  Um, okay, I had just made one last week on music too so I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with this one.  I started going through You Tube and listing all the songs I love and basically I was going to just make a giant list of my favorite songs.  But then OMD's If You Leave from Pretty in Pink just popped into my head and that was my inspiration for my page.  I love that song and the movie because I was such a crazy Andrew McCarthy fan.  But you know the book that the movie is based on doesn't end the same as in the movie?  Talk about disappointed when I read the book after watching the movie.  Like what the heck?!  Andie doesn't live happily ever after with Blane?  Well, back to my page.

I used Miss Anya and My Guy Ian to represent Andie and Blane cause that's the way it should be.  I found some music paper and wrote some of the lyrics to the song and added stickers for the title.  It's a bit light.  I sprayed some shimmer spritz to make the page all sparkle-ly.  

A close up of the pair. 

I had a journaling partner tonight.  My youngest colored his Ian to "copy" me.  Hehe.  Then he cut and glued some papers and ribbon too.  He was really happy his page got some shiny spritz too.  Oh, and he even tried to distress his pages with my inkpad.  He makes me laugh.  I think he'll like that I posted his page on the computer.

On a side note, he really liked the little abc flashcards I made for him.  Though I think I should include more clear pages so we don't have to keep changing the pages around.  And should use alphabets without serifs.  You should see how he tries to make those finishing lines on the letters too.  It's too funny so I have to tell him to leave those out.  But it's a nice size for his little hands.  He asked me why he couldn't write on the cardstock itself.  Almost had a heart attack.  Um, cause Mommy worked really hard on those so please don't scribble on all the pictures.  I'll see how long that lasts.

Thanks for reading!

I didn't know the movie was based on a book. Cute layout! Neat sparkles. I like R's layout, cracks me up that he used the bar code scraps. He colors so nicely! It even matches your Ian down to the socks!

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!
