my secret

Good morning to all! I know I have been gone for a while we had our Anniversary, Dr. appointments, relatives from other countries are visiting, had meetings, getting my inventory up for the fall etc.. etc… but here I am for today’s LSS project I just did a quick LO that I have been meaning to do. It basically is an about me page. I love the way it looks I know it’s simple but it holds lots of secrets about myself :) The button is from Lindsay’s stamp set for the  darling little ones “Babies and Bows Collection”. I just enlarged it and then printed it out. I used watercolor to color the image and I was trying for a worn out faded looking button.

I know this is a little short but I just heard some news that really saddens my heart and I just am not as chatty.  One of the original Design team member of LSS has passed away unexpectedly due to an accident, my heart and prayers go out to her husband and kids. Life goes by so fast and is so fragile that’s why we have to treasure every moment and live life to the fullest.

Happy smiles to all of you today :) it never ceases to amaze me just how fast a week goes by now that I am older. I remember when I was a child the grown up’s always said time goes by so much faster when you get older and boy where they right!

My project for today features a new gorgeous stamp from Lindsay’s shop. It’s just one of her new designs isn’t it just beautiful! I love dragonfly’s don’t you? they’re wings are so colorful and delicate. So for this card I printed the stamp out twice and colored it in with my prisma colored markers. I then cut them out and layered them (becasue you know how I love dimension and using my dimensional adhesives :)) but before I layered the images I did apply some glitter to the wings to give it that sparkle. The gerbera daisy that this beautiful winged creature is resting on was cut using my Cricut and my Sure Cuts A lot program. After cutting the daisy and assembling it I added a dew drop to the middle and just fluffled the petals up for more dimension. The scalloped edge was made using a fiskars border punch. You have to go and check out the new designs that Lindsay has created for you they are just amazing!!! So head on over to LSS and purchase your stamps today.

ATC butterf

 

Hope all of you are doing well this morning. I have titled this ATC Let your Dreams take flight, because there is someting in the works here behind the scenes that I am soooo excited to take flight but that will come soon but not right now. I am beat, but a good beat. I actually am typing this at a very very late hour and just scheduling it to post becasue if I sleep now I don’t think I’ll wake up in time tommorow. I had such an exciting week…why? you ask well I attended a business conference called Simply Successful. I know sounds boring right but guess what if was for……SCRAPBOOKING! it was like an intimate setting of CHA. I got to meet and talk to some wonderful companies one on one and see their new releases up close and hear some sound business advice from some amazing manufacturers in the industry. I will blog about it when I get some rest and post the pictures but just to start these are some of the companies that were there …..  Cosmo Cricket :) ,BoBunny,Sizzix,Moxie,KI Memories and so much more. Yes you will want to stay tuned I got silly and giddy at times. OK now on to our regularly scheduled Thursday program.

I created this ATC card as part of a Going Green ATC swap I am praticipating in over at SisTV. I used the beautiful butterfly stamp that Lindsay created. Since the theme is going green I printed out the stamp on part of a page of an old book that has seen better days. I love making ATC’s because it really lets you open up your mind to create. I used my Bic markers along with some Copics to color it in.  and layered it along on my ATC. Lindsay is continuing her promotion so you guys are in luck so head on over and get your stamps spend $5 dollars and you will get a FREE stamp! and it is time to hunt around for that FREEBIE  among the design team members so make sure you hop on over to their blogs and take a peek at their creations and as always leave them some love.
