Boy Wonder...


Here's Case 200 over at CSI and the color pallet this week was just perfect for a photo I had been wanting to scrap for a little while.... Jaden is only about 5 in this pic and with the spiked hair, the growly face and the dinosaur in his hand ... I couldn't resist!! hee hee

Lots of stamping with this one and what fun to do a Boy Page....

Time Bandits...

 The Title was cut from several fonts that I "welded" together and my Cricut Expression...
I stamped the music notes on a 3/4" circle, distress inked the edges and added some Glossy Accents..

 The Flowers and Leaves were die cut from two Tim Holtz's Decorative Strip Dies. The brads are all from my stash..

 All the Clocks were stamped from stamps I have in my stash..

This is my first submission as a Member of the CSI Design Team. How wonderful it is to be a part of such a talented group of people who have inspired me to create meaningful and fun Scrap Pages.... hopefully in some small way I can return the favor.
These vintage photos are of me and my cousin and dear friend Paula. Can you believe they were taken almost 50 years ago?? Well I can't..!! hee hee
It was fun to put this page together and having such a great sketch really helped...
If you're looking for a challenge and some incredibly talented folks to get your Mojo going and maybe win some prizes.. CSI is the place to be!

When Supper fights back...

I really enjoyed this week's case over at CSI this week...the colors were perfect for some great photos I had of my granddaughter Jaelin fishing last summer with her Mom and Step-Dad and would you look at that incredible background!! Alberta is such a beautiful province....of course I'm not sure what a great fisherman Jaelin REALLY is! hee hee
It also helped to have this awesome sketch by Emma Stafrace..
For loads of fun, inspiration and even prizes, CSI is a great place to play along!

Birthday Card...

 I'm really enjoying the water colored look on my cards and I am also enjoying my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers.. they are so easy to work with and blend beautifully..

This is an old wooden-rubber stamp from Anita's - #48721 26463
I also used Versafine Onyx Black Ink as it is waterproof, once it dries
The bling is from my stash
Some Glassy Accents on the Flower sums it all up....!

This is my final submission as a Guest Designer at CSI for the month of March... it's been truly challenging as I had not been scrapbooking for almost a year, although I have been card making... however similar they may seem..the two are still very different mediums..
I certainly appreciated the opportunity to be a part of such an inspiring team... it's always good to push yourself that wee bit further....
This weeks challenge was about childhood and it gave me some very special moments looking through some awfully fond memories...
Come and play along...!!

Big Girl Toys...

Come play along with Case 194 over at CSI  ..It helps to have such a wonderful sketch by Emma Stafrace..!!
I looked through so many photos of my kids and grandkids looking for toys and such... but none really "spoke" to me.... until I looked around my own craft room... and realized how many toys I had and how much fun I have playing with them..
Of course there is not enough room on a scrap page to show them ALL.....!
