My Son is Miro

Please allow me this mommy moment... but I think my son may be Joan Miro incarnate.

Anderson Moore: Untitled

Joan Miro: Nocturne

I just think there is something wonderful about this drawing... and the fact that he sat still and quiet for over an hour to create it was such a bonus!

And please... no comments telling me I am deluded... I already know and I love my world.

Happy Accident

Ever make a page or a card... post it online... read the comments and then learn something new about your work? That's what happened with this layout; a little something I made for Category Stories. Many of the comments I received talked about the patterns, and the dots... and how cool it was that they all matched. Totally NOT planned! then I realized how many dots were in the papers, ribbons and letters I chose for this layout... a completely happy accident!

So check it out....

Dots in the clouds, dots on the sun rays, dots in the letters, dots on the ribbon... dots, dots dots! My only "concept" with this layout was the layers; from the bottom it's sand, water, sunshine and sky... but the reason it seems to "work" is because of the dots that pull it all together!

Who knew!

Scrapping my Barack Off!

For the "Project Catwalk" Mini Book Challenge over at SIS TV... I Baracked it up. I did a google image search for "Obama Art" to get most of the pictures. I love all the art that people are creating with Obama's image!

A Layout... and Tot-Art

Just a fun layout from a random "shopping" challenge on SIS... We had to pick three items off a list to use on our layout... I sellected American Crafts Paper, Metal and Candy wrappers. I had been saving these Japanese gum wrappers for a while... I think they fit the bill.

How cute did these thank you cards turn out? My son chose the colors, and the stamp... I did the stamping, and he did all the coloring... he certainly added his touch!

I just finished a really great mini album that I am super proud of... I can't wait to show you!

Remember Puffy Stickers?

I used to have a wonderful collection of puffy stickers... alligator shaped, rainbows, some neon pink hearts I'm sure. So when I saw the new Puffy line by American Crafts I was immediately taken back to the early 80's.

I just loved how easy it was to apply the AC rub-ons to the Puffy stickers. I actually could just press it in place with my fingers.

Paper, ribbon and Puffy Chit-Chat Accents by AC. Bird punch by Martha Stewart Crafts for Walmart.

I Think I'm Funny

I admit it. I crack myself up!

I know it's hard to see those tiny letters... here is a close up...

Don't you love how the Rub Ons (Hambly of course) looks on this textured paper?

Don't ask me who to send this card to... I have no idea.

Project Catwalk... Week Three

Ok, I am still playing Project Catwalk over at SIS TV... even though at this point I think it would be impossible for me to win mathematically.

Hopefully you are watching Project Runway... and you know that while Keith's dress was in the bottom three, it would have made a cool scrapbook page. He used a wet newspaper as his inspiration.

So I used a bunch of Japanese newspaper squares as my inspiration... and I Mod Podged them in place with matte finished MP. I used a Dymo labeler to create the journaling.

The picture I used is of me at age 4ish... aren't I cute! I see so much of my son in this picture. Boy I wish I still had that Fisher Price Camera!

Edited to add: how hilarious is this... I was selected as one of the winners for this week! Miss Kayla Aimee chose me for her fave... and I could not be more thrilled! Thanks everyone!
