splash city rocks!

The next 2 pages are for the weekly challenge over at Club CK using a sketch:
I had fun using mixed media along with bling! among other scrappy goodness!

I stayed pretty true to the sketch and loved playing with new techniques and materials!

heat wave continues!

I finished the pages from CKC "Scrapbooking off the Grid" using October Afternoon and had a fun time! My next effort now is to tackle the "Mosaic Moments" class and create at least one page to show what I learned.

It is going to be brutally hot today so I'm gonna settle in and stay in the air conditioning! Have plenty to keep me busy!

hot & humid!

it's gonna be hot and humid today...the high getting to 94 or so. I just ordered 98 prints from Walgreens to scrap this afternoon - need to play catch up a bit. So I will have a LO or two later on. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a happy father's day! Blessings!

ombre technique try

so here's a LO for ScrapFit's Step Class #5 Ombre Accents. It was a stretch for my creative mojo!

12 hr crop @ LSS

I'm just back from a crop at the LSS where I scrapped from 11 - 5 p.m.! It was great! I am finishing up 5 LOs tonight while DS is at a party...hmmmm...not sure what to think! This LO was fun to do for issue challenge #7 on the CKC scene - wrap an element with baker's twine. The surfboards in the bottom right corner were felt stickers I put on chipboard and then tied them together with blue baker's twine. I fussy cut some of the waves to give the page a little more depth. The title is the Noah Mini Alphabet Acrylic Set from Maya Road and I used Adirondack Stonewashed Alcohol Ink on the individual pieces. Whew! How's that?! Lots of details...

not a great day!

last night the bathrooms - there are 2 - decided to flood!! we literally just stood and watched the upstairs toilet overflow! we couldn't do anything about it! so the plumber guy is here now and he "snaked" our drain! I snuck in the office to finish 2 LOs from CKC "Gimme Dat Bling!" class. I really enjoyed playing with the wired raffia and ribbon - I love bling!

Yep! 2 more!

These next two LOs are for challenges over on the Club CKC scene!
The first is for the Sketch It Out! June challenge from the amazingly talented Ashley!
And this next LO is for the June '12 Color Challenge from Toree! Had fun with both of these challenges!

On a roll!

CKC has had me on fire! I feel inspired and motivated! I'm about ready to jump out of my skin! (Of course, that just may be the medicine I'm on!) Last day for IV meds....
These next two LOs are for Creative Scrappers. TFL! Hope everyone is having a blessed week!

A new blog from an amazing peep!

Here is the link to a new blog: This is a great blog for inspiration and motivation!

CKC was a blast!

I really enjoyed CKC this year! It was nice to see some friends and to make some new ones! The classes were great and these next 4 LOs are from the "My Mind's Eye - Quick and Classy" class. I absolutely love these collections from MME!

Gonna take a break now but will be back with more later!

back from CKC!

CKC was really fun and I learned lots! I saw a few friends and made a few new ones! Mike and Liam spent the day together after they dropped me off. They found a new water park where Liam learned how to surf! How cool is that?! the guys had a blast!
Had my first infusion of meds yesterday and was amazed at how quickly they worked to help me walk! Then the first round of meds ran its course and now I am back in the wheelchair waiting for the nurse to come and redo my IV. It's all good though! I have hope and can see a bright light at the end of the tunnel!
So now to scrap using the LOs from CKC! My most favorite class was "Mosaic Moments" and I can't wait to print pictures to scrap a LO with using this "grid" technique that is so cool!
Thanks to all fellow scrappers for the continued support and encouragement and can I just's good to be back!

CKC is finally here!

I didn't think I was gonna get to go but Mike wants to take me and stay with me the whole day! I mean not in the classes with me but he will wait and push me in my wheelchair from class to class! How cool is that?! I hate for him to give up a whole day for me but he wants to. My first class is at 10 a.m. tomorrow and the my last class ends at 8 p.m. I am so blessed!
I am going to try and scrap today. I am waiting for a call from the home health care nurse to tell me when I will get my IV for medicine to get me back to walking again. I have to have it for 5 days but I can still function around the house in my wheelchair. Gotta get packed and ready for CKC tomorrow!!
