Sea Breeze

I have never scrapbooked in chronological order. I tend to just do the layouts according to whatever strikes my fancy. I found this paper pack by Couture in Selena's little green truck. Scrapendipity It is so beautiful, the photo doesn't even do it justice. I did some fussy cutting, found a paint chip in my favourite color wheel. Cut up some of the hundreds of beach photos I have. {I try really hard not to get any other tourists in them LOL}
Speaking of which......

Fae Children

This is my oldest granddaughter's graduation dress
photo shoot at Lake Abraham.
The main photo flips forward,
so I can add some journaling underneath.
I am waiting for some profound thought to come
to me before I fill it out.
Maybe this one from Pinterest
Dear Jazzy: Happy Birthday!

Dylusions Paint Pens

 This week I spent some time fooling around with the Dylusions Black and White Paint pens. I really like the black. I think I will have to play with the white a little more to see how best to use it. I initially used it as a resist before I added the ink. It worked well with the sponged on ink. The spray did tend to bleed under just a bit.
Because they have a fine tip you get a very clean neat line.
I am not done this page, will be adding some stamps on top of everything. I got the lyrics to the song wrong....but count yourself lucky I wasn't singing them to you......
And then I did a little Halloween diorama.

Summer Ghoulishness

It is never too early for haunted houses! I dug deep into the stash for bits and pieces to create these 'flat' vignette's.
It started with a template from Paper Traders, a group of like minded traders. We work off of prompts and this was to build mini haunted houses. They will be sent to a creative hostess who will then swap and bind in a mix-n-match style and send them back as a completed foldout booklet.
This one is still in need of a few more details
I usually make one to keep and one to swap. This is the swapper, outside complete with graveyard, of course!
Inside of the swapper. I think I need to add a library to the center sample. Not done yet, but very close to being ready to mail out. The turn around will be just in time for Halloween decorating.

25 Years

 My best friend recently celebrated 25 years of marriage. Being the type of person I am, I wrote a mini speech for the occasion.
 Some silver paper, a doily, double sided tape and a touch of glitter.
 Instead of a card, I have assembled the words I wanted to say into a sort of mini book.
Some personal notes, string bind the back
 I found this on the net and thought it would be fun to include the 25 year statistics.
You can find them for just about any year mile marker
or make your own.

Beautiful Jazzy

To make the rail across the bottom I cut a piece of chip board. Then cut a paper 'board' to fit the strip. Glued it on, trimmed it, sanded the edges. Then used the Distress stain to blend and make a faux wood strip. I used distress ink and stain for the pegs as well.
