Paper Patch Sketch Challenge


This is a layout I did for the Paper Patch Crafts Facebook July Sketch contest.

The photo is of Wesley. We had walked past this statue of Goofy probably 100 times and he never wants to sit and have his photo taken. One day he just decided...Hey mom--let's get my picture here. He and I used to go several times a month to Disney World because we had yearly passes. This is something I hope he will remember when he grows up, because this was some very special times with just him and me.


PAPER- CTMH, Bazzill

Black Bling Stars- from Recollections

Red stars and blue star strip- cut with the Cricut Expressions using the Stand Salute Cartridge

Two grey stars- Grungeboard from Tim Holtz
Embellished with Viva Decor Pearl Pens- Gold

I used Helmar Craft Glue to attach the Red Stars and the Grungeboard.
I used Xyron 150 to attach the strip of blue stars.
I used Helmar Tape Runner to attach the paper and the photo.

Inspirational Journal

This is a journal that I have started. It was inspired by Tracy Weinzapfel over at Helmar. She is very into them and I need some inspiration in my life right now so I thought I would give it a try.
Throughout the next month or two I am going to be showing pages from the journal, as I create them.
You can get more details over on Lets Get Peachy blog!! Check out the blog and don't forget to enter the monthly follower challenge!!

Getting back into life

Well, it has been a long time since I have been here to share anything. My life has not been worth sharing over the past few months. As some of you know and the rest will now, I am in the process of getting a divorce after 20 years of marriage. It has been a long couple of months and this hasn't been easy for me. Just when I thought things were going to turn around, he asked for a divorce.

BUT...I am trying to take back my life now. I want to thank Laura at Let's Get Peachy blog. She and her blog have started me back on the road to getting crafty. My love for all things crafty left me for several months. Laura has asked me to help her with the blog. I have accepted and I am excited about being able to be useful again. The blog is getting a face-lift and there are some changes over there!! These changes won't actually take place until July 30th, but I just wanted to share because I am excited with what we are working on. So, if you are not already a follower over there, click on the big orange button on the right and become a follower!

This week is CHA and unfortunately I am unable to attend, but I hope to get to go back in the future. I have decided I am going to try my hand at being a traveling scrapbooking store. I will be going around to local crops. So, if anyone hears of a crop in Florida they think I should attend, please drop me a note and let me know!!

I want to thank all my friends that have stuck by me through this nightmare. I appreciate all of you greatly. I have found out who my real friends are and I am proud to say they are my friends!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. For some of you it will end in a few weeks, others still have a whole month! Get out there and enjoy what you have left!!
