Color challenge from Jeanette's blog!

Stars! Stars! Stars! Love them! ctmh colors: creme brulee, outdoor denim, indian corn blue and cranberry... perfect for my pic's I had of karissa...they were
"rustic" outdoorsy, and she hates all the girly girly colors... made a fun card too with the ms chillin set and boom from ctmh.

the Power of Black and White!

My mom hates black and white photo's but I love them!
they were introduced to color in her life and said she has seen enough black
and white.. but the power you get from B&W is so unique.. you can get more of
a "feel" for the person., or story..more "depth" ...
anyways I am happy with my layout of kayleigh! No stamping! just embellishments and paper!

MoJoMonday sketch challenge # 143!!!!!

this weeks MoJo! is also the color palette for
Great way to get your mind thinkin...... you take the good.. you take the bad...
no wait, thats the facts of life...LOL JK......anyways..... I followed the color palette and the card sketch...and used my imagination! I first random stamped on a 12x12 colonial white cs in versa mark the butterflies and flowers and white embossed them....then you take sponge daubers and dab them right into your ink pad and start from the Middle of your embossed image and "swoosh" out or around... then I sponged in all the rest using all colors from the palette.. and then used them for my
background on the card and added the pearls...( I think it finished it)
I just had to use a "bow" even tho the sketch did not have a bow...
all supplies ctmh , except flowers are hero arts..
thanks for looking!

My photo
I have a great passion for creating, and have been stamping and scrapbooking for over 15 years now! I absolutely love handmaking things and haven taken over an entire room in our basement as a"craft room".

I have been married to my wonderful husband Kurt for 23 years, and have three daughters ages 21, 19, and 15. We love animals and have two dogs and several horses.
I also enjoy hairstyling and run my own hair salon.
